Our evening at the training academy for the cookery & cocktail class was excellent from start to finish. Our chef Don & Jamie who did our cocktail class looked after us brilliantly. Great fun and would thoroughly recommend it.

Very impressed with the class that I recently took part in at the Tennent's Training Academy. Very friendly welcome from all staff, the kitchen was spotless and there was someone constantly clearing away dirty dishes as you used them. Excellent demonstration with opportunity to ask questions before you have a go and a delicious lunch cooked by another chef for... More

I bought this for my friends birthday and we went last week (Thursday) and from start to finish it was fantastic. You feel welcomed from the minute you arrive until the min you leave, in fact you don't want to leave, the treatment and customer service is of a very high standard. Once we got in and seated, a lovely... More

Bought this as an anniversary treat for my hubby and I and what a FAB night. We had no idea what to expect but we had such a good time. Jehad that took the class was laid back and welcoming and kept us interested throughout. We got to taste plenty of beers and were suitably "half cut" when we left.... More

I would recommend this course to everyone! The Chief Joe was very friendly and helpful while cooking and talking us through every step of the way. All staff who we spoke to were very friendly. Would go back to this course and looking at booking another class to give it a try.

Never write reviews, however, the Tennents Training Academy cookery course on Italian Cookery was great, from start to finish. The chefs Joe Queen and his right hand man George did a great job explaining how to prepare the three courses which we then cooked ourselves and enjoyed afterwards.The day was very relaxed with a bit of humour thrown in by...

I can not recommend this place enough. What you get for the price was outstanding! We were greeted by Ross who was extremely friendly and offered us a wee drink. After that we were taken in the minibus up to the training room. Here Joe and Michela greeted us. There was already a massive spread on the table and we... More

Was a great experience learning how to cook American from a Scottish Chef. He did a great job and the class was fun. There was plenty of food and the interaction made the night very enjoyable. Everything about the evening was top notch from the reception to the end. Hope to visit again soon.
