New College Lanarkshire’s Cumbernauld campus offers more than 20 courses in hospitality and professional cookery, and their stylish in-college training restaurant, Taste, offers an incredible value dining experience two days a week, with lunch served on Fridays and dinner on Tuesdays (booking required; limited time slots). The menu is always different, dependent on what’s being taught in the kitchen that day. It might be a hearty steak pie, or global offerings such as curry, or something fancier, like a fillet of salmon with spinach gnocchi and a tarragon beurre blanc. Three courses will cost a remarkable £6–7, and the standard is pretty good, all things considered. When booking, if you let the kitchen know about any dietary requirements, they’ll accommodate if possible.
