I have attended a few classes now at The Cook School. On arrival we were greeted and shown to the dining room where we got some delicious freshly made scones and tea and coffee. The Mexican day class is definitely my favourite! The chilli chocolate churros are to die for!! I have also been to the Italian demo and dine... More

I have been to a number of classes here at the Cook School- both full day and demo and dine. On my most recent visit I went to the Mexican demo and dine evening- absolutely faultless. I learned a lot of new recipes and cooking techniques on my visit and the chefs are great at explaining what they are doing... More

Had the most amazing time at The Cook School and definitely cannot wait until I can go back. My friend and I went to the Foodie Friday evening and I must say that Chef's Andy and Bob were brilliant, so knowledgeable and they made the evening so relaxed and fun, and the food was outstanding. It was such a lovely... More

Iv been to the Cook School on several occasions now. A mixture of full day classes and demo and dines. From start to finish great experience and great faculties . I'm definitely not the most confident cook but the chefs tailor everything to all levels. Would recommend the cook school to anyone. I know I will be back

This has to be classed as a rip off!! My 2 sons went at a cost of £90. They came back disgusted. They were shown how to cook potatoes and a plain sirloin steak and then got to eat them with a glass of water in a canteen style room. DON'T GO THERE. RIP OFF.
