Description: Origins is a new, contemporary restaurant at Shrewsbury College, just outside Shrewsbury's historic town centre. It serves top quality British and European food, lunches and three-course evening meals. Theme nights and events featuring music, drama and world cuisine feature in its calendar and there is plenty of free parking. The restaurant, led by experienced chefs and front of house professionals, is a first-class training facility for students whose culinary expertise is recognised at national competitions. The amazing value for money, including a three course meal for £14.95, reflects the fact that food is prepared and served by students while being overseen by chef lecturers.

Booked for the taster experience but at the last minute it was substituted for a 4 course dinner.We love Origins because....they focus on quality not quantity ! It's always educational..there's a good chance your'll be tasting something you've never had before.The price (including the alcohol) is ridiculously cheap..We go whenever we have the opportunity...it is a culinary experience.

This is my second visit to this restaurant. If you have never been, it is at Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology, it is where students train on the job in the catering trade. At lunchtime it is excellent value at £10 for 3 courses.
The food and service was excellent again. I would have given it 5 out of 5, but on the day we visited they had less staff, as a number of students were taking exams. Because of this the menu was smaller and I struggled with my choices. The food I had was nice, but I am sure I would have chosen differently, if there was the usual amount of choice.

Silver service by college pupils great attention to detail. Menus at lunch time are very good servings are small but the it’s not a cafe it’s fine dining so a little of something fancy is good.
Recommend trying this place out I guarantee you’ll go back. Such lovely staff and Dan the head chef manages his pupils well

What a lovely venue. Bright, modern, clean and fresh. This is a training restaurant for students in the hospitality sector and as such this should be remembered; however all the students worked hard to make our evening special, from front of house to those behind the pass.

The food was top class, beautifully presented, (we had the taster menu) equal to that found in many expensive restaurants. Well done, to students and staff alike!
