Cristory's Restaurant

Our Cristory's restaurant is the training environment for our Hospitality & Catering students.

The menu has been designed by Chef Lecturer Robert Hunter, who has worked in world-class restaurants around the world, including the Goring Hotel in London. Guests can enjoy a variety of dishes which all celebrate wonderful Manx produce.

As well as Robert Hunter, students are being supported by Lecturer Irene Berry who has worked as a pastry check for Jason Atherton at Pollen Street Social which is a Michelin starred restaurant in Mayfair, London. Students working in front of house are ably assisted by Tracy Conway who has lectured at UCM since 1996 following a successful career working in hospitality and hotel management as well as in La Belle Epoch in Cheshire which was a Michelin starred restaurant at the time.

Cristory’s is located on the ground floor of the Homefield Road campus and can be accessed via a ramp up to the main entrance. There are four disabled parking spaces in the main car park. During your visit to Cristory’s, you’re welcome to visit our toilets on the ground floor.

As part of the continued development of our facilities we’re regularly looking at ways to improve the accessibility of our campuses to meet the demands of our students and everyone who visits us.
