A lovely venue with beautiful views over Cheshire field. Brian was very friendly. We had booked a private evening for our club membership which worked really well. Great chat with lots of pizza making and sharing and a friendly host. Highly recommended!

Had a great time at the cookery school today - made to feel very welcome. Any nerves soon disappeared with the great tuition and lunch outside was an added treat. We will certainly be back!

I can't speak highly enough of this place - it's ambience, the standard of the tuition and the facilities. I went for the Spanish cookery session and learned about knife skills along the way and will never look at waste food in the same way...More
