Greeted by very friendly staff and shown to our table to look at our recipe sheets. Offered wine or tea/coffee. Once we got started our chef Ben showed us how to make our first course which... More

We did a night with Ben Arnold. He was so unbeliebably lovely, really funny, fun and brilliant. The food was fabulous, some fantastic lessons learned and a whole lot of laughing. The booze is dangerously free flowing and the craic with the group is what makes it so fun. One of the funnest evenings we've had in years! Highly recommend!!!!... More

Booked myself and a friend to the cook the perfect steak class. The school was great craic and the head chef James assistant Mathew were great hosts and we really learnt the tricks of the trade. If you want something different don't miss this cookery school.

We visited the cookery school and had a brilliant time! Not only was the cooking fun, the food which we made tasted amazing! They are also very generous with the wine which is an added bonus! Would highly recommend to anyone, no matter what experience or confidence you have in the kitchen!

We received a warm welcome from the Chef (Stephen) who introduced us to our instructor, Martin. There were only 7 attending this class, but we were all in agreement that the... More

Attended a tapas cookery lesson last night at the BCS. Stephen was a great host/teacher and made us feel at ease right away with a glass of bubbly and a smile! The four dishes were really very simple and we had clear demonstrations of each before getting started. Stephen was on hand if you had any questions or queries and... More
