Gourmet food cooked and served by convicts


It's a restaurant - with a difference.

In The Clink, the chefs and waiters cooking and serving gourmet food are all prisoners at High Down Prison in Surrey.

Levan and fellow prisoner Robbie were both nervous on their first day, and prison kitchen manager Al Crisci kept a close eye on both of them. He had sacked seven of their fellow inmates in a month.

The Prison Restaurant can be seen on BBC One at 2235 BST on Tuesday 26 April and after on BBC iPlayer.
