Serving exquisite, varied and locally sourced menus throughout the week.
On Friday 13th March the college took the very difficult decision to close the restaurant for the next two weeks to protect our students, staff and our valued clientele.
We have contacted all those that had reservations and wish to thank everyone for their understanding at this incredibly difficult time.
We hope to be reopen after the Easter break, those with reservations after the 14th April will be contacted nearer the time to let you know our current position.
If you have made a deposit towards your booking and would like to rearrange for a later date please let us know and we will of course move your booking and honour your deposit. Those that wish to cancel and be refunded will of course be reimbursed in full.
The college is currently still open to students and staff and we are keeping a close eye on direction from the government. Because of the uncertainty at this moment in time it would be best to contact us via email where we can reply remotely to you in case of a closure.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in the near future,
The Silver Plate Team
Nestled within our City Campus overlooking the Sheffield skyline, The Sheffield College has a little culinary secret we would like to share with you – The Silver Plate Restaurant.
Run by our fantastic Catering and Hospitality students under the supervision of our expert staff (two of whom are Master Chefs of Great Britain), the department has recently been awarded a much coveted Hospitality Guild gold accreditation, with Patisserie and Food & Beverage Service also being recognised as Centres for Excellence. In addition, The Silver Plate Restaurant has been awarded the prestigious AA College Rosette Highly Commended award – one of only 20 colleges nationally to hold such an accolade.
Serving exquisite, varied, and locally sourced food throughout the week, the award winning Silver Plate Restaurant allows students to showcase their talent as we host tasting menus, lunch and evening meals, and our sought after themed nights to the public.
The Silver Plate has superb links with a range of top industry chefs, including Rupert Rowley (former Head Chef of Michelin starred restaurant Fischer’s at Baslow) and Tom Lawson of double AA Rosette restaurant, Rafters. These chefs regularly provide our students with guest lectures and support them to provide our customers with the highest quality food and service.
It's not just our teaching staff who are outstanding in their field! In 2019 Sheffield College baking students scooped a haul of awards in a national industry competition, winning nine gold, three silver and four bronze awards in the annual Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees (ABST) competitions.
We also have a team of young chefs who have reached the final stages of the Zest Quest Asia competition - watch this space for their results!
Our lunch menus are based on seasonal, fresh produce and change regularly, so you're always in store for something delicious and new.
Served Tuesday - Friday, you can enjoy a table d'hote lunch menu:
For just £25 per head you can experience a gourmet set menu inspired by Master Chefs from around the world; including canapes, four specially created courses and petit fours.
Recent gourmet evenings have included bespoke menus by guest chefs such as Dan Ashmore, Ross Sneddon and Rupert Rowley, who headed up the launch of our new MSK Academy.
