The cafe at the Cook School is attached to a small shop for buying various foodstuffs and cookery implements. The cafe serves all its food and drink in takeaway containers, but there is plenty of seating if you wish to stay and eat. My partner and I have been there several times, and we have always enjoyed the food, which... More

Spent a great day at cook school, making a three course meal, that we ate for lunch, but taking leftovers home. As well as demonstrating the recipes before having a go ourselves, Jacqueline gave us loads of useful information and tips. Well worthwhile for cooks of all abilities. Only negative was sometimes you had to go looking for equipment and... More

Did the simple suppers evening and enjoyed the whole event. Wine and food included in the price as well as instructions on cooking the various dishes. They also have a well stocked shop. Great idea as a gift.

I have been to the cook school before for their demo and dine evenings which both were fantastic. After going to the steak evening where you get to cook your own steak I thought I would give the full day cookery class a go. I have no experience in the kitchen what so ever, unless beans and toast count? After... More

I attended the 'Pasta Day' with some trepidation, having little kitchen experience. I needn't have worried. Chefs Andy and Bobby immediately made me and the rest of the class feel at ease. The tuition was relaxed and informative. The facilities and support staff were first class. I would thoroughly recommend it for a good day out
