What Our Students Say


I’ve been there many times and absolutely love the place, activities and staff. I always go alone but am never alone when there. I usually attend the Ladies Pottery Painting evening and have made some really lovely items. Would recommend this place either as a group or alone.

Had a wonderful time yesterday at The Cookshelf with my friend on our Master class for making Macarons. Learnt a great deal about how to make these delights as Kate our teacher was really clear as to how to go about it all. The end results were superb and delicious as the techniques and technical methods really worked. Lovely relaxed class with good explanation as to why we did each step a certain way for the best results, thank you so much Kate. Lovely afternoon tea and scones and a cheeky Proseco whilst we sat and chatted provided by Kate’s daughter who made our afternoon too with her friendliness and fun. Great afternoon to spend your time learing something new.

I organised a Hen Do here for my friend. We did pottery painting and then had afternoon tea. The food was lovely, everybody thoroughly enjoyed creating something, and the atmosphere was perfect. Kate was great host who kept the day flowing, but also allowing us to play our Hen games.  I’d highly recommend this as a family friendly start to a Hen Do!
