Half Day Classes

Half Day Classes

Our Half Day Classes offer you the chance to spend 2.5 hours in the kitchen with our Head Chef, Stuart, where you will learn how to cook a range of delicious dishes from your chosen theme.

Your day begins in our dining room where you will have the chance to meet other guests in the class while enjoying tea/coffee.

You will then move through to the kitchen where our chef will begin to demonstrate your chosen dishes. Each guest has their own individual state of the art cooking station where they recreate the dish our chef has demonstrated. Our chef will be on hand throughout the day to assist.

At the end of the class, you will take everything you made home to enjoy.


We run a morning and afternoon session for our Half Day Classes. Our morning session runs from 9:45 am to 12.30 pm and our afternoon session runs from 13:45 pm to 16:30 pm. Half Day classes are priced at £50 per person. Please contact us on [email protected] for pricing of Group Bookings.
