A lovely venue with beautiful views over Cheshire field. Brian was very friendly. We had booked a private evening for our club membership which worked really well. Great chat with lots of pizza making and sharing and a friendly host. Highly recommended!

Had a great time at the cookery school today - made to feel very welcome. Any nerves soon disappeared with the great tuition and lunch outside was an added treat. We will certainly be back!
