Cooking and eating brings people together, and is a unique and memorable activity compared to the usual meals out. Our pricing is also competitive, particularly since hirers can bring their own drinks to enjoy during their event. We love helping people to bring their ideas to life and can provide recipe ideas on request. Just contact us to discuss your ideas.
Our general bookable sessions run Monday to Thursday and daytimes on Friday and Saturday:
- Morning: 8.30am-1.30pm
- Evening: 5pm-10pm
- We sometimes have slots available for booking in the afternoon for a few hours so contact us if you are interested in that option. We can also discuss pricing for full-days or multiple bookings.
Bookings are also available Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday all day for an additional fee, typically, £60 per 5-hour session, but please contact us if you wish to discuss.
