Fresh start for UCM's training restaurant

New name for facility which trains future chefs

A restaurant which helps train chefs of the future is set to re-open next month with a new name.

Oastan, at University College Isle of Man, is Manx for restaurant and will open on 4 October. 

It acts as a training environment for hospitality, catering and food services students.  

Melanie Clague, head of the creative industries faculty, said: "We’re pleased to be reopening the restaurant which is a fantastic facility for students to really hone their craft in a real working environment. 

"The name Cristory’s has served us well for many years but we wanted to update the brand to reflect the modern training our students engage in, the high quality of our hospitality, catering and food services offering and the lovely environment that the restaurant has.

"We look forward to welcoming back guests who have dined with us previously as well as new customers who want to try the fantastic food our students are producing."

Robert Hunter is the chef lecturer at UCM:
