Standard of behaviour
We expect you to behave sensibly and appropriately at all times. If for any reason we are unhappy with your behaviour you may be required to leave the premises.
Special dietary requirements and food allergies
We’re very sorry but we’re unable to tailor our courses for special dietary requirements unless you are booking a minimum of 10 people. Please inform us in advance of any allergies, disabilities, pregnancy, diabetes, epilepsy or any learning difficulties.
There may be traces of nuts or other ingredients in our recipes and if you have food allergies you attend at your own risk.
We do run vegetarian courses please contact us for details.
All payment must be made in full at time of booking. We do not take provisional bookings.
Please make payment by either cheque or credit/debit card. Cheques should be made out to Foodworks Ltd.
We do not share credit/debit card details with any third parties.
Cancellations and refund policy
Our standard 21-day cancellation policy applies to all courses held at The Foodworks Cookery School. This means that up to 21 days before the date of the course, you may request a change of date and we will happily transfer your initial course date to another subject to availability. You may also request a refund up to 21 days before, however this will incur an administration and handling charge of £16 for an individual booking and a minimum of £50 for all venue hire, private parties and corporate events (calculated on a sliding scale depending on numbers).
Cancellations within the 21-day period will not be eligible for a refund. If you do find yourself unable to attend a course at short notice, then you are welcome to send someone else in your place.
If you cancel during a course you are not entitled to the return of any proportion of the course fees.
Our open vouchers are valid from 1st January – 30th June (6months) and are transferable should the recipient be unable to attend a pre-booked course. Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash.
We recommend that you take out insurance to cover cancellations beyond your control for reasons such as illness.
Foodworks reserves the right to cancel courses due to adverse weather conditions without refund. Courses may be re-scheduled upon request.
The above also applies to Foodworks gift vouchers.
Course fees and dates
Course fees and dates are quoted at the time of going to print and we reserve the right to make alterations at any time. In the unfortunate and unlikely event that a course has to be cancelled, we will always try to give as much notice as we reasonably can and you will be offered a choice of an alternative course or a full refund. We will not be liable for any other costs that you may incur.
