Diners were in for a treat after more than 50 students took over the running of a busy city centre restaurant.
The catering and hospitality students from City College Norwich took over the Library restaurant on Guildhall Hill yesterday.
During the day they were involved in every aspect of running the restaurant and took on roles including head chef and general manager. While students were supported by lecturers and employees, they were expected to carry out their roles to a high standard.
Ryan Gotts, 17, a level one hospitality and catering student from Dereham, said: 'This was a completely new environment for us and we had to get used to everything really quickly but the best bit was watching my team adapt to their new surroundings.
'The Library takeover has given us the opportunity to learn a new range of skills that we can use not just in the Debut Restaurant [at city college], but also in any other restaurant.'

The students worked in shifts, covering a lunch and dinner service. It culminated in a gala dinner, which saw them prepare and serve a three-course meal designed by themselves, to more than 40 paying customers.
