About Us

Something to celebrate? Perhaps a birthday, exam success or a special anniversary? Why not meet your friends at Gaskell’s and enjoy fine food in a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere.

Gaskell’s is Wakefield College’s fully licensed training restaurant operated by Hospitality and Catering students.

For our students it creates a realistic working environment in which to practise the skills they have learnt in the classroom. For members of the public it provides the opportunity to sample high quality dishes at moderate prices.

As a 50-cover establishment, Gaskell’s is happy to welcome parties, special conditions apply for groups of 10 or more. The Restaurant can be booked for private functions.

What’s cooking?

Generally the restaurant offers a variety of traditional 3-course table d’hôte menus. Also look out for our themed events, wine dinners and special nights. Over the past few years we have bought in a lot more themed evenings such as our Titanic Evening where guests come dress to impress.

Whatever the occasion, you can be sure of a warm welcome and professional service at Gaskell’s Restaurant.
