Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The bee keeping event is excellent, the equipment is provided by Sara. Learning bee keeping practically is a unique experience. Also excellent breads and the food is delicious!

We love inviting families to discover where their food comes from and honey bees not only give us honey but also pollinate so much of the other food that we produce. I'm so glad that your granddaughter had a good time! Sara

I attended the Easter Baking Course and had a wonderful experience. I made wonderful hot cross buns and a stunning apricot couronne with previously having had any success with an enriched dough.

Sara is a wonderful teacher and fantastically knowledgable about all aspects of bread making.

I would definitely recommend this course. Have some tea, bake some amazing creations and enjoy all the compliments!

Just had a great day making every kind of pasta at Hen Corner’s Pasta Making Workshop. Sara is so generous with her advice, recipes and top tips. You leave with bags groaning with all the goodies you have made. Given that Sara also provides drinks and lunch, this has to be one of the best value cooking workshops around!

Thanks for this, we *LOVE* making pasta - especially when we can make it with eggs from the chickens... I hope you are still making pasta at home? Sara

I took an Intro to Bread making class at Hen Corner. It was a really great day - I definitely feel confident to start baking my own bread now. It was such a well structured workshop, everything perfectly timed. Even though Sara was working hard behind the scenes to make it go so smoothly, she made it seem effortless!

Attended Hen Corner for a Christmas wreath making workshop recently. Sara was very welcoming and it was a fun few hours. Hen Corner is a fabulous set up and it was interesting to learn about all that Sara does there. From the street you’d never know what lies behind! A few weeks earlier I had ordered fresh bakery items - divine. I would highly recommend Hen Corner for the produce and the workshops. A gem of a community asset in Brentford / West London. Deserving of support.

Attended the introduction to breadmaking course and definitely worth the visit. If you want a homely, relaxed experience without compromising on knowledge and learning new skills then this is the course for you! Forget the corporate style courses, Sara hosts in her own home surrounded by a beautiful garden, bees and chickens. It was lovely to hear about her philosophy and move to sustainable living. I received personal attention and was walked through the process from start to finish interspersed with chats and refreshments. She teaches the Bertinet style of making bread rather than traditional kneading which gives a lighter bake. We had a lovely pizza for lunch made during the course and at the end of the day I left with several loaves of bread, buns and all my bakes. I definitely feel more confident about baking at home.

Wow! I cannot recommend Sara brought! Our synagogue was holding a pre Rosh Hashana (new year) extravaganza where we eat things sweet with honey. We wanted something to add to the theme so Sara came down to teach our kids about the life cycle of bees and how honey is made. She brought with an incredible bee hive which all the kids were fascinated by, bee keeper suits for them to try on an play bee keeper aswell as allowing them to taste some award winning honey. We had almost 40 children ranging from 1-10 years old and they all absolutely loved it. We had incredible feedback from all the parents too!! Cannot recommend enough.
