‘Stay and Cook’ package

Our Cook and Stay packages provide you with the opportunity to reward your team or wow your clients by combining a memorable activity with the finest of Cotswold hospitality. We can ensure the delicious flow of a day’s menu to ensure sharp minds and stimulated taste buds as you move from classroom to wood-panelled restaurant.

One of our favourite corporate days is our Express Dinner Party where teams work together to estimate timings, delegate roles and create a three course meal which can then be enjoyed in our charming garden or stand back as our kitchen studio transforms into a stylish and intimate restaurant. Throughout the day there will be demonstrations from the chef on key skills and presentation as they create seasonal dishes to keep the team inspired.
