I know a vegan who ate here earlier in the year. She contacted the staff in advance and they were really helpful, essentially cooking her a bespoke meal, which they felt benefitted their training.

The Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal opened to the general public in April 2015 and offers women prisoners full-time work within a true-to-life restaurant and kitchen environment. Alongside their employment the prisoners also train towards gaining nationally recognised City & Guilds NVQs in food preparation and food service before returning to their prison accommodation at the end of the working day. Upon their release, The Clink Charity helps the graduates find employment within the hospitality industry. The restaurant is an example of a unique charitable project that is committed to reducing reoffending rates in partnership with HMPS. The restaurant positively promotes the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners and also champions the wealth of quality, fresh and organic produce available locally. Seasonal food is prepared and cooked in an open plan kitchen offering diners the opportunity to watch their food being prepared. Afternoon tea is now being served Monday to Friday, 1:30pm to 3:00pm and must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. As of 1st January 2017 the restaurant will open every Sunday, 12:00pm to 3:00pm, serving roast lunches with 2 courses for £19.95 and 3 courses for £25.90. The restaurant also holds a Gourmet dinner every Wednesday from 6:30pm offering a 4-course menu for £39.95. This must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. Available for exclusive hire, The Clink Restaurant boasts 2 private dining areas with projector and AV facilities that can be used for meetings, presentations and private events.
