Sarah’s standards never drop. Whatever product I buy is always first class. I love all her breads, but best of all the apple and chilli jam. Goes a treat with toast. And the Seville orange marmalade is, according to my 90 year old mother, the best she’s ever tasted….

We visited Hen Corner for a course in chicken keeping and a brief introduction into beekeeping and it was an absolute delight to be hosted by Sara! Not only does she answer any question and is really hands on, she is also super genuine, welcoming and her divine cooking is a bonus as well!

Really enjoyed our Introduction to Bread Making course with the inspiring Sara! She explained clearly, instructions were easy to follow, she made us do all the work - important for giving us confidence to try again when at home without her expert guidance - and it was fun. I couldn't believe the amount of different breads we baked, we went home with an enormous paper bag packed full of delicious freshly baked sweet and savoury goods feeling very pleased with ourselves. Heartily recommend for anyone with no or little experience of bread-making.

I had a marvellous day on the pick and pickle course. I came away with 4 delicious jars of produce as well as lots of new information. I feel as if I could pickle or chutney most vegetables and cannot wait to make more of my own. Just waiting for some surplus produce to get cracking on. I will be back to learn more skills.

My 6 year old granddaughter was very keen to keep chickens until she encountered Sarah’s huge pure breed hens! It took two hours of patience, in which we learnt a huge amount , but she stroked a chicken by the time we left. Thanks so much Sarah I’m looking forward to collecting our own eggs soon.

I booked the 'Day at Hen Corner' after seeing great Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Sara was so lovely, making us all feel welcome and covid-safe as she guided us through making bread and jam (including a pizza for lunch) then introduced us to the chickens and bees.
We took home our bread and jam (which was spectacular, even if I do say so myself) and a few other Hen Corner goodies we couldn't resist purchasing.

One of the joys of living in Brentford is the weekly treat of collecting our order of wonderful bread and pastries from Sara's home kitchen. Every Friday afternoon from 5pm -7pm, you'll see local people making their way to her house overlooking St. Paul's Recreation Ground. The door will be flung open and the gorgeous smell of baking wafts into the street. You'll be greeted by Sara, in her chef's whites, with a big smile, slightly pink in the cheeks and flour in her hair. OK, I made that last bit up. But you get the idea. It's really easy to order from the website and she always has special treats for feast days like Christmas and Easter. Enjoy!

We had an amazing day yesterday with Sara at Hen Corner doing a one day bee-keeping course. We learned so much about bees and how to look after them, and Sara was a fabulously entertaining host - PLUS delicious pastries from the Hen Corner bakery and a home-made lunch to die for!
Can't recommend highly enough - thanks Sara.
