Our restaurant, The Knighton, can accommodate 168 people and offers the highest quality in catering.  We focus on providing delicious food to all of our visiting delegates and guests, ensuring that your stay at College Court allows you to benefit from the very best hospitality available in great surroundings.

Offering truly inspirational dining, the diverse menu is provided by an expert catering team and they are dedicated to creating fantastic food, using only the very best seasonal and locally sourced produce.  The unique history of the building will be echoed in the bespoke culinary offering with innovative reinventions of 1960’s food and drink concepts.

At breakfast, The Knighton offers a varied menu including all the english breakfast classics and more. Lunch is available on a pre-bookable basis only as our conference centre means the restaurant is often fully booked. Dinner service is also available to pre-book where guests can choose from our fantastic Table d'hote menu. With precision, without extravagance, faithful to true flavours and excellently presented, the cuisine is modern and flavoursome.

Your palate will be astonished by the variety of flavours and your eyes will be delighted by the dining room's wonderful decor. Inspired by the 60’s architecture of College Court, the decor of our restaurant is elegant but modern with wooden panelling and the leather seating in shades of tan and cream serves as a perfect decor for a light and vibrant ambience. Following a recent upgrade in December 2014 our restaurant now has a more intimate and cosy feel allowing guests to enjoy the space whatever the occasion.

We are also able to offer an exceptional private dining experience at College Court, with fine dining in Lady Hestor, our private dining room. Set in truly opulent surroundings for up to 20 guests you can enjoy a sequence of dishes designed not only to capture a delicious and exciting range of flavours, textures and aromas, but also to bring multisensory appeal, some culinary history and a sense of theatre to the dining experience.

The Knighton is also available for private hire for any occasion you wish to celebrate, contact our team for more information.
