Booking with us and while in the studio


  • Places are booked on a first come, first served basis once we have received your payment in full.

  • We will email you a confirmation email once you are booked on a course.  Please check any 'junk' or 'spam' folders if you do not see it.  Alternatively, contact us.

  • Please note the cancellation policy on the booking page.  We are unable to refund any confirmed bookings with less than 72 hours notice.

  • While we aim to keep all menus and descriptions 100% accurate there are occasions where we may need to substitute ingredients if there is a local shortage of certain items.  We will though ensure that the nature of the lesson is not changed.

  • It is your responsibility to ensure that we are aware of any allergies you may have even if the lesson you have booked on does not contain those ingredients.

  • You are welcome to take photos and videos while in the studio but please be mindful of other participants and ensure they are aware if you are likely to take any photos containing others.  We regularly take photos and videos in the studio but will ensure you are aware and will not include you in those at your request.

  • CCTV is in operation in the studio 24/7 and is used for crime prevention and security.  The images are kept for 30 days and may be passed to the police if required.
