Visit The Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal – the brand new dining experience in Cheshire that is designed to transform the lives of women prisoners through work-based training and education.

The women working in the restaurant are working towards City & Guilds NVQs in Food Service and Food Preparation and will be mentored following their release, to help them find employment within the UK hospitality industry.

Opened in April 2015, The Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal is an innovative restaurant that delivers change to the community whilst offering a high end dining experience. Awarded The Sustainable Restaurant Association’s 3 Star Award the prisoners in training use quality, fresh and locally sourced produce to create classic dishes with a modern British twist.

We accept cash and credit and debit card payments and those under 18 are welcome in the restaurant, providing they are accompanied by an adult.
