About Us

Welcome to BR6, our student-led restaurant & bakehouse here in the heart of Orpington.

BR6 opened in February 2015 and is the centerpiece of London South East Colleges’ Hospitality, Food and Enterprise Career College. Part of a national network, Career Colleges work closely with employer partners to provide 14-19 year olds with the skills they need to work in specific industries.

Last year we launched phase two of the BR6 project, and opened up our new Bakehouse. Serving light lunches, coffees, cocktails and cream teas, the Bakehouse also offers a range of Kent produce, artisan breads and pastries for customers to take home.

Executive Head Chef Jason Main heads up BR6, leading the team of Career College students. Putting the skills and theory they learn in the classroom into practice, the students also learn how a commercial restaurant is run. Experiencing this professional environment prepares them for work in the hospitality industry and will open up exciting career opportunities.

BR6 Restaurant and Bakehouse are going from strength to strength, developing an excellent reputation for offering high quality food in a wonderful setting with great service. The Restaurant has been No1 on TripAdvisor for the past year!

All of the tips go towards trips and educational visits for our students.

We are very proud of what our students are achieving here. Many thanks for helping to support the chefs and restaurant managers of the future.
