AA College Rosette: Award (34 Restaurant)

Exeter College is a large, thriving and growing tertiary college which places teaching, learning and student success as a top priority. We enjoy an excellent regional reputation. The college was judged as outstanding by Ofsted in a pilot "no notice" inspection in 2012, and again in a full inspection in 2014. We were awarded the Times Educational Supplement 'Outstanding Provider of the Year in 2012 and BTEC College of the Year in 2014.

The @34 Restaurant is located within the campus grounds of Exeter College, and a truly unique culinary experience that it is catered for and run by the students of Exeter College themselves.

Both in college and in the faculty we have high expectations of our students and staff and each year their combined efforts result in excellence in hospitality throughout.

"I think it's a wonderful accolade for Exeter college to receive and for the chefs during this time to achieve also. It’s great for them to have the opportunity to be involved and say that they have worked to that level at college. Having eaten at @34 a few times the food is outstanding and knowing it’s been produced by students is remarkable and a credit to their lecturers." Woodbury Park Hotel & Golf Club
