i was given a gift voucher for my birthday and went along to the cookery school yesterday for a "dinner party" course. What an amazing experience this was. The kitchens are immaculate and very well equipped. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the demos are excellent. We were fed and watered all day with Betty's treats and a lovely... More

I have attended courses a number of times. It is always a delightful experience. The tutors are very helpful and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The dishes that you make and take home are amazing. A day at the cookery school is like a breath of fresh air, you feel so energised and inspired. Thank you Betty's.

Just come back from a fabulous day at Betty's cookery school. Great fun, informative, and well paced; you come away with great bakes, the recipes and skills to recreate what you've learned, and a tummy full of all the wonderful food you're given! Really great day out, I'll certainly be returning.

I had so looked forward to the patisserie course that I attended last weekend at Bettys. However, in my opinion it did not live up to the standards expected from this company. A course where on a bench where there were two sinks and two ovens there were three people. How can this work - not very well, being the... More

Betty's cookery school is the best cookery school in the north of England. The facilities are well appointed with sufficient space to prepare and cook. Unlike other cookery schools you don't have to share preparation ur ingredients with fellow participants. All the recipes are tried and tested giving you the confidence that you can recreate them at home. Betty's may... More

This is an excellent course held in a purpose built building on the outskirts of Harrogate. The post code they give you will get you to the gate just outside the building and the only people having a problem finding it were the locals who thought they know where it was. They run lots of courses and in my experience... More

I did the fish course, I have my own catering business, but wanted to learn fish filleting techniques. The course did just that and we produced some lovely finished 'ready for oven' fish dishes. I was concerned that the course may be below my level of competence. Not at all, it was fast moving, specialised course and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

My wife and I were bought from a group of friends as a wedding present. We did the bakign with chocolate course. Whilst the tutors were amazing and helpful (there is nothing they could have done better), and the recipes great, it didn't feel as good as it should for the money. The lunch in particular was very underwhelming, likewise... More

Loved this course, myself and 17 others had the 'Fish' course with Melissa and Lisa today and was very impressed with the tuition. The refreshments are Betty's quality too, so much so that I couldn't face an evening meal. Great day learning new recipes and techniques, can't wait for the next one !
