College Launches Brand New Restaurant, ‘The Griffin Grill’

Dearne Valley College is excited to announce the launch of a brand new commercial and training restaurant, promising delicious, locally-sourced food produced by the next generation of culinary professionals.

The Griffin Grill, based at the popular Onyx Retail Park in Wath-upon-Dearne, will offer diners a high quality, contemporary dining experience, with a menu that is created and served by the College’s talented students and Apprentices, overseen by a team of industry-experienced Chefs.

The fully-licensed restaurant, which can seat up to 37 diners, currently boasts a festive themed menu which includes traditional options such as succulent turkey crown, and the famous DVC Christmas Pudding with brandy sauce, to the less traditional choices such as mushroom filo wellington and locally-sourced venison.

Principal and Chief Executive at Dearne Valley College, Martin Harrison said: “We are delighted to be able to launch this brand new restaurant for the local resident and business communities to enjoy wonderfully-cooked food whilst supporting the young talent of South Yorkshire, with a state-of-the-art training facility to add to the College’s existing provision. We look forward to welcoming everyone.”

Front of House Manager and Lecturer, Darren Foden added: “As a fully-licensed venue, we welcome bookings for all types of celebrations and events, accepting bookings and walk-ins. Our students will also be putting on themed evenings for something a little different. This venture allows our students to gain real-work experience within the industry.
