The Brasserie was announced as the winner of the 2018 People 1st-sponsored AA College Restaurant of the Year award at the annual AA Hospitality Awards in London on 24 September 2018.

The Milton Keynes College team beat off stiff competition from Parcs Restaurant, Peterborough Regional College and Trevenson Restaurant, Cornwall College after all three were shortlisted following a jam-packed judging day at The Principal Hotel in London.

Congratulations to all three finalists, and a big thank you to all the student and lecturer teams that attended the judging day in June - the quality of entries was incredible and the judges were hugely impressed by the energy and enthusiasm on display. It was a very tough decision!

Details of next year's competition will be available here in early 2019.
