PL1 trip advisor award

TripAdvisor has awarded City College Plymouth’s PL1 Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie the Certificate of Excellence for the second year running as a direct result of the consistently great reviews received from their customers.

Founded in 2010, the Certificate of Excellence award honours hospitality businesses that have consistently achieved outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificates are awarded to businesses based on their review ratings, overall rating and the quantity of reviews left by visitors.

The restaurant’s popularity ranking on TripAdvisor was also a contributing factor for the Certificate of Excellence. PL1 Restaurant has previously hit the number one spot of places to eat in Plymouth and is regularly found on the City’s top ten rankings on the popular website.

The College’s PL1 Restaurant is run entirely by students under the expert guidance of City College lecturers. Helping to prepare students for employment in the hospitality industry, the restaurant is supported by state-of-the-art industrial kitchens where students are trained to prepare fresh food using only the best local ingredients.

PL1’s Front of House Enterprise Co-ordinator, Nicky Putman, said: “We’re delighted to receive this prestigious award from TripAdvisor for the second year in a row. They are the most influential review site, so it is really wonderful to have the hard work and talents of our students and staff recognised by them. It means that when our students leave us, they can say they’ve worked in one of the top restaurants in Plymouth

“I want to congratulate our students and to say a big thank you to our fantastic customers, as it is their glowing reviews which have won us this Certificate of Excellence.”

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel website, reaching 340 million unique monthly visitors, and more than 350 million reviews and opinions covering more than 6.5 million accommodations, restaurants and attractions in 48 different countries.
