The restaurant at Brooke Weston is to undergo a facelift over the summer break as a £100,000 refurbishment programme gets underway.
More than eight and a half million meals have been served since the College opened 15 years ago, and so the fixtures and fittings are being replaced with more modern equipment.
Vice principal Stuart Williams is overseeing the project, having chosen the granite worktops and green colour-scheme, and the project should take specialist contractors two weeks to complete.
He said: 'The new restaurant has been in the planning stages for at least 18 months so it will be a real asset when it is up and running.' he said. 'With the amount of staff, students and visitors we have eating at the College each day the fixtures need to be sturdy and robust. The new restaurant will look attractive and hopefully should be as long lasting as the last one!'
