“Great night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This was bought for me as a birthday gift and we did the Pizza making class. It was excellent fun and we ended up taking most of our pizza home with us! John, the chef who took the course, was fantastic and really informative.

Hi Annie,

Thank you for your great review of our new Pizza Masterclass. We have only been running this one for a few weeks and it is great to hear it is being so well received. I will pass on your words to John and the kitchen team at The Academy. I hope you have been trying out your new skills at home and recreating the delicious pizzas.

We look forward to seeing you again on another one of our classes.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I did the Curry Comedy night with my husband, son and daughter and their friends. What a fab night. The curry was excellent and the whole experience was excellent fun. So much so that Im giving everyone gift vouchers for Christmas just so they can have a wonderful time as well. Cant wait to go back in February for Steak Night.

“Fantastic Training Facility!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My partner and I went to the Tennent's Training Academy for the one day course for the Scottish Personal License Certificate. The website is easy to use for booking this course and payment also its quick and face plus a bonus is that they accept the ILA for methods of payment to help the unemployed get back into work which is always a big bonus. We arrived at the Academy which is very grand looking on the inside if i may add. Signed in and got told to wait for the Minibus to take us to the Academy..... ROADTRIP!!! No think again most shortest bus journey ever got into a cool looking minibus that had a moustache on the grill we all got in seatbelts on everyone secure and we drove about 25 meters and then stopped, Me thinking 'Picking more people up' No that was the journey complete (Didn't actually leave the brewery) so had a wee chuckle at that (For those outside of Scotland the phrase 'Wee' means little) Arrived at this state of the art academy with Fully functioning bars to train on and also wine cellars, Plus big fancy kitchens to try your culinary skills on.Taking through for something to eat before you start which was completely free very nice touch (There hot chocolates are fantastic) also the muffins at the Reception ARE AMAZING!!! you have to have one or two when the receptionist isn't looking. I kid they let you take one more if your nice. I forget the lecturer name which is a shame cause he was a good teacher and i don't want to say the wrong name incase the wrong person gets the praise. My apologies after that we get more free food, which is hot food i might add. Then the examinations WHICH WE BOTH PASSED!! plus we where giving materials which we can take away with us. Overall Fantastic facility and you do learn a lot there and with the state of the art kitchen and bars you will certainly get value for your money.
