Hi all, I frequent the Cook School fairly often, usually either for a nice freshly cooked breakfast, or for a good midday meal, both of these are very nice and, as mentioned, freshly made for you, there is an interesting shop there also, providing a large selection of handy kitchen items (interesting) and they also sell a good variety of...

Had a 'baking day' and it was superb. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff, lots of information and of course you got to take stuff home at the end. Amazed at how much I learnt. Will be back.

My daughter and I had a wonderful day yesterday at a pasta making class. Vanessa our chef and instructor for the day was fantastic. She demonstrated and coached us through each step and gave us lots of hints and tips for all sorts of cooking methods. Pasta making is no longer a mystery and we even managed to master the... More

Thai street food was the theme, very well explained and cooked. We had four tasters in the kitchen area before going through to the dining room and having our main course and pudding.... More

We live close by but have never been here before until last year. My wife bought me a voucher and we decided to go for a Mexican show and dine evening where you don't cook yourself but watch the chefs create, tasting (and drinking) as you go with the main meal afterwards. We loved every minute of it and would... More

Everything is splendidly organised and the other attendees were interesting and good company to cook and dine with. Make a point of attending a day class or the also... More
