We’re now open and accepting online reservation requests and phone reservations. We look forward to seeing everyone back in our restaurant and dining with us in person!
Welcome to Scholars
We’re a small, fully-licenced Bistro based in the centre of Blackburn, part of the Blackburn College campus and offer a great dining experience at fabulous prices.
Our restaurant is run by both industry professionals and fantastic Blackburn College students.
We pride ourselves on being one of the leading training restaurants – providing you with a welcoming and friendly experience from the moment you walk through our doors.
A four-course lunch can cost as little as £12!
You will feel right at home in our dining room, where our friendly team are waiting to serve you.
Our menus change with the seasons – as do the skills of our student chefs.
Visit us regularly throughout the academic year to see how our dishes develop and become more intricate.
By using fresh and seasonal ingredients, we want to create a meal and service you can enjoy and remember for a long time.
All our dishes are created as part of student’s assessments; from pouring your wine to baking the perfect sticky toffee pudding, the students work unbelievably hard to learn new skills for your enjoyment.
The standards will blow you away – professional cookery at beat the budget prices; you’ll be sure to have a great meal.
The Proof is in the Pudding
If you’ve dined with us or are planning on doing so, we would really appreciate your feedback. It’s extremely important for our students’ progress and the success of our training restaurant.
