Four of us travelled from the SE and stayed for two nights. Very acceptable rooms, comfortable lounge, top breakfast and friendly staff. We had gone to learn to make pies - apple, pork, and pasties, and had a wonderful day with expert tuition. Would recommend going on a course, and we plan to return for more, but hope the owners...

Thank you Jon for your review and comments and we are delighted to hear that you intend to return. We too were shocked by the amount of flies present when you visited us and, as we said at the time, we had never seen so many. The situation took us by surprise and was not something we had experienced or... More

Today was my second visit to the cookery school, this time to make tapas. As during my previous visit, the course ran seamlessly, was well paced, with ample opportunity to ask questions and seek advice. The food we produced was delicious. We will be returning v soon.

Brilliant, we'll run course which taught me a lot about bread making! Excellent lunch and I came home with a Granary Cob, Stromboli, Focaccia and Banana Bread! Highly recommended in every way!

A well run course introducing the right way to prepare an Indian meal, rather than the 'throw some spices into the pan and see what happens' method I have usually employed. Others have mentioned the facilities which are excellent, and the small group of 8 was ideal for the tuition before we attempted our versions of the dishes prepared. I... More

For a first time attending a cookery course, this far exceeded any expectations me and my partner had. The whole day was fantastic and all staff were friendly and welcoming throughout. The day was superbly organised and the demonstrations were given in a professional yet relaxed manner, which immediately put us at ease. The facilities are excellent and, as well... More

I've never taken a cookery course before, but this was great. I spent the day making bread, and came back with some terrific loaves and, more importantly, the knowledge of how bread is made, which is a very physical thing that it's hard to learn from books.

I had a fantastic day in a great location. I had somewhat of an "out of body" experience as I produced wonders like Banana loaf, Focaccia, Granary Cob and delicious filled Stromboli with relative ease and very few of the normal problems I have with Bread making. The staff were friendly and very capable and attentive and the course teacher... More

Learned far more about cooking in the day than I expected. Very enjoyable atmosphere and with only 8 of us in the class it was easy to learn. I am a bit of a novice cook and when I saw what we were making I thought it was going to be a bit much for me but I needn't have... More
