I wish I had discovered Honesty Cookery School earlier! I am a keen home cook who had previously participated in several other cookery classes in various locations previously unaware that Honesty Cookery existed locally. Since that point I could be described as a regular, having attended a variety of courses, each of which has been excellent. Whether it be Italian, Indian, Middle Eastern or more recently Japanese cookery, each of the tutors has inspired me to practice my new skills and knowledge successfully at home. Why does Honesty Cookery School appeal to me? Primarily the lack of pretension and the opportunity to be part of a small, friendly group led by tutors who are fabulous but non intimidating cooks. Each time I have learnt so much, often just simple tips that have made a huge difference to a dish. I now have a bursting file of recipes that have been well received by family and friends. Of course the fabulous setting and well equipped kitchen speak for themselves. In a few words: superb value, great fun and I couldn't recommend the cookery school more highly. I am looking forward to my next session!
We just wanted to say what a fantastic afternoon we all had at the Honesty Cookery School yesterday. The Barn is beautiful, Robin was a great tutor - very patient and just what we had hoped for. The assistants were so friendly and worked hard in the background. We came away so happy having shared a great experience which balanced learning about Italian food with fun and relaxation. Many many thanks for all your help to arrange this for us. Adele has taken away some wonderful birthday memories as have we all with her. 10 out of 10 to the Honesty Cookery School! We are looking forward to receiving the recipes and making the dishes again at home.
Firstly, thank you for the warm welcome to the course and the introductory chat. It was spot on and low key, which set everyone at their ease. The whole course was a joy to attend, with excellent surroundings and a first class kitchen. Louise was a wonderful tutor and so passionate about cheese making. Lunch provided a welcome and well timed break and was delicious. All in all a great day, professionally organised.
Thank you to all the team at Honesty Cookery School for another lovely day. Such terrific value you offer, I couldn’t tire of coming and learning more!

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.
We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.
Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.
It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.
Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing email@example.com
All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.
If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.
We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
