Foxholes Restaurant, Runshaw College
Operating a full restaurant service two lunchtimes and two evenings a week, the mission of Foxholes Restaurant is simple – to have 'Pride in Quality and Service'.
The training restaurant at Runshaw College, in Leyland, Lancashire, has always aimed to embrace current trends and techniques to enhance the experience of both the customer and the students who are training for a career in hospitality.
As a restaurant that prides itself on being local, Foxholes is proud of its strong relationship with local suppliers including family butchers Haydock’s in Leyland, Wellgate Fisheries in Clitheroe, Ribble Farm in Longridge, Prospect Brewery in Standish and Barrica Wines in Samlesbury.
Each dish on the menu is selected to develop the students’ culinary skills as well as present a meal that is both current and meets customer expectations. This attention to detail and the high standards set by the staff and students ensures that the customers enjoy the food and dining.
