Private Dining  – bring friends together

How many parties, big birthdays, events, celebrations have we missed over lockdown? never mind get togethers with friends.

Our cookery school is large and airy with plenty of space inside and out. A group booking with your bubble or six friends means you can have the space to yourselves including the balcony. Chef will help create a bespoke menu and our sommelier will match & supply wines.

We’ll make the event bespoke to you, taking into consideration all social distancing rules – our cleaning schedule has been increased and of course washing hands, as ever, is key to cooking!
