We have some exciting news to share! Over the summer, the HSDC Restaurant was given a new name and a new look. We look forward to seeing you at 74 South in the coming weeks.
Our fully-licensed fine dining restaurant at South Downs Campus, called 74 South, is staffed by our talented Catering & Hospitality students and open to the public. It’s an opportunity to enjoy high-quality, freshly prepared food while also supporting what we do here at the College. Every task is performed under the guidance of qualified and experienced Catering & Hospitality lecturers to ensure a first-class fine dining experience.
We have The Angela Hartnett Academy at the College. This provides strong partnerships with Angela and her chefs who come down throughout the year to work alongside our aspiring chefs to create culinary delights for our lucky customers. During Angela’s visits, she supports the teaching team, inspiring them with new ideas and dishes and keeping them on top of the current trends in the industry. We are extremely grateful for the work experience Angela provides for our students in exquisite, well-respected hotels and restaurants such as Limewood – New Forest and Murano – London.
In the past, we’ve welcomed top chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, Marcus Wareing, Tom Kerridge, Nathan Outlaw and Philip Howard to the restaurant facility. They’ve given us their seals of approval for what we do, so why not come and sample the experience for yourself?
When visiting 74 South, current government COVID-19 safety procedures are being followed and we request all guests use hand sanitiser on arrival.
