A pop-up restaurant opened for one night only at a Worle primary school where children gave guests 
 the VIP treatment.

Becket Primary School children became chefs, waiters and front of house staff as they cooked up a treat for invited guests.

The four-course meal included lasagne, a stone age stew, pizza and chicken wrap.

The children had been taking part in a cookery project and wanted to set up a pop-up restaurant to show their growing knowledge of food types and the importance of a balanced diet.

Year three teacher Joe Godfrey, who helped to organise the project, said: “The children chose their favourite meal (pizza/lasagne), a meal from our past (stone age stew) and a meal specifically designed by the children to meet the needs of a professional footballer (a chicken wrap), focusing on including carbohydrate and protein to give them plenty of energy and to recover from exercise.”

The school worked with Bristol City Football Club on the project, and the children were given a stadium tour, nutrition talk and watched a match.

Each meal passed as being acceptable by the footballers received a certificate to show it was approved by Bristol City.

The pupils’ recipes were also inspired by a visit to the Beefeater restaurant in Hutton Moor Road.

The meal raised money for Weston Foodbank, and Mercury reporter Sarah Robinson went along as a food critic. She gave the restaurant five stars.
