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.

This year we will be a 40 cover establishment.

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.
