Had a great day on the Fish Supper day today with Mike Keen. A very relaxed and enjoyable day with a fabulous lunch at the end of it. This is the best birthday present I have ever had and would highly recommend it.

Thank you for making our team day such an enjoyable one! Third visit for us and you just keep making it better, even our growing numbers didn’t spoil the day and the marquee meant even an English summer didn’t spoil anything for us – thank you to you and your team, a well organised and very enjoyable day.

Thank you ever so much for providing such a wonderful day out yesterday. It was absolute cooking heaven! I have already been shopping for all of the ingredients to make everything (except for the octopus but I would love to give that a go one day). Tonight I'm going to have a go at making pasta and pesto to go with salt baked bream so let's hope it goes well...Please thank David also. I will definitely attend another course in the very near future (and will demand another birthday gift!) so I wish you every success with the business.

What a wonderful day I've just spent with Rose & Amanda on the Spring lunch cookery course! I've learnt to correct some long-standing culinary errors; been cured of a fear of curdling cream; met interesting people and ate a superb lunch. Thank you for such a lovely day.

Thank you for a very enjoyable day yesterday. Mike certainly knows his stuff and is very good at communicating it and you were the perfect host.
Good luck with the business, and perhaps I will attend another course in the future.
