Got a birthday gift to visit the TTA and do a cookery/cocktail course with a trip to the Corinthian afterwards. Went as a party of four, we all enjoyed it and felt it was good value for money. The lad doing the cocktail part of the evening was very knowledgeable and I'll definitely not accept a cocktail anywhere that needs... More

I went to the Curry & Comedy class with my girlfriend and we had a wonderful time. Our chef (I believe his name was Michael) was wonderful about demonstrating the recipe and was very funny and personable. The recipe turned out to be delicious, and the unlimited pitchers of Tennent's lager and cider made for a very enjoyable dinner. Transportation... More

I booked this for a gift to my Mum for her Birthday, it was the best gift I've got her in a long while. The day is split into two parts. The cupcake decorating is first and is a great class, with lots of hints and tips. I've been to a few cake decorating classes but this was far superior... More

Went to the Cook School part of the Training Academy. Spent several hours in excellent facilities, with detailed and enjoyable teaching from the resident chef. Good value, particularly as I got it through an Itison deal. Would definitely recommend.
