The Lane Restaurant is where our talented catering students have the opportunity to show off what they have learned and to demonstrate their creative flair in the kitchen.

 All the dishes are prepared by students under the careful supervision of our professional chef-lecturers and technicians. The hospitality and catering team has built an excellent reputation through the achievements of its students in competitions such as World Skills, the Electrolux Student Chef of the Year and the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards.

Our alumni have gone on to work at prestigious London hotels such as the Dorchester, Savoy and Claridges, as well as local high-quality establishments including Whittlebury Hall, Kilworth House and Fawsley Hall.

If you’ve dined with us recently, we’d love to hear from you - please email us or write a review on our Trip Advisor page.

Here's what some of our recent Trip Advisor customers had to say about The Lane:


Linda G

"This is an ideal place for a leisurely lunch in pleasant surroundings. The staff (both the trainers and trainees) are friendly and helpful. It’s very good value and also good to witness the younger generation being trained in the hospitality sector."

Tom M

"The falafel starter was lovely. You can tell that it was all freshly prepared. I had fish & chips as a main and they accommodated my change in dessert. The service was very good. Bearing in mind that the people on shift are students that are currently traning and learning. Best of luck to them all for their upcoming exams."

Kathryn H

"Came for a lunch meal with my Partner and really enjoyed the new relaxed atmosphere. The finer dining element still exists for dinner, but it was lovely to have a casual lunch. I liked the option to have one, two or three courses as that caters to all appetites. Food was nicely cooked, and the free tea/coffee with the dessert is a lovely touch."

"Food was excellent. Service was courteous and nothing was too much. Second time I've been with different friends. A wonderful night - would certainly recommend."

Montyh611

"I was pleasantly surprised with my experience and had a great evening. Food was delicious and plentiful. Staff were polite, efficient and friendly and a great atmosphere. Would definitely come back!"
