The waiting staff were friendly and professional. The food was excellent - and I enjoyed every mouthful - we both agreed it was the best meal we have enjoyed out in a long time. The students were a credit to the staff, and the food a testament to the quality teaching and hard work of the tutors.

My Wife,Daughter in law and Grandson were invited by my Granddaughter who is currently a student of catering at the college to have lunch at the Beechwood.
Long ago memories of parents evening were rekindled. What a glorious surprise, Very professional in all aspects, all our meals were well cooked beautifully presented and courteously served. If these young people are new into the industry complements must be paid to their training. A most enjoyable visit all priced really well and a credit to both the hospitality industry and the college - well done

A delicious three course lunch beautifully served by the students to over 60 members of Monmouth U3A. The three courses were followed by mince pies and coffee, and all agreed the meal was very good value for money.

11 fine dined at the Beechwood this evening, very pleasant experience with most attentive but not intrusive students learning their craft with visible enthusiasm!
The Gravlax starter was very good and the Turkey main excellent. Sweets were nicely presented, followed by mince pies and coffee.
Well done Coleford Catering college.

Beechwood is run by the FOD College, with the students being taught all aspects of the catering industry, yes, sometimes the service can have blips, as is always the case when people are being taught and trained, however, having said that the food is always beautifully cooked and presented. These trainee chefs really do have potential to go a long way within the industry. Service is always given with a smile which in my opinion goes a long way in this business.
