Gift Vouchers

  • Gift Vouchers carry an expiry date which will be specified on your voucher.

  • To book a course using a Gift Voucher, you are required to telephone The Cooking Shed on 07525 763198.

  • After making a booking using a Gift Voucher, the actual voucher must be returned to The Cookery School within one week of making the booking. If it not returned within that time, the booking will be cancelled (if we cannot contact you) or you will be given the option to pay cash for the class booked.

  • Please note that any payments made for vouchers using Paypal that are eligible for a refund may be subject to an admin charge deduction of £2.50 per transaction to cover Paypal processing fees. 

  • Once issued, Gift Vouchers are your responsibility. They are as valuable as book tokens.

  • If a Gift Voucher is lost by you, it cannot be replaced.

Class cancellations:

  • In booking a cookery class at The Cooking Shed, you are booking for a class at the time and date specified and, once booked, you are not able to change the date and time of this course unless we receive notice in writing four weeks prior to the date of your class.

  • An administration fee of £10 will be charged to change all adult class bookings, and an administration fee of £5 for all adult and child class booking changes if notification is received four weeks prior to the date of your class.

  • All adult classes are non-refundable.

  • If you find you are unable to attend a class, you are welcome to send someone in your place, even at very short notice. However, you must notify us in advance if you wish to do this so that we can make any necessary amendments and will require advance notice of any allergies or special dietary requirements or need for access.

  • If you book onto a course using a Gift Voucher, you will be required to provide the gift voucher reference number at point of booking, and you will be requested to return the Voucher to The Cooking Shed within one week of the booking being made. Failure to do so will result in your booking being cancelled should we not be able to contact you, or monetary payment being requested to secure your course.

  • We reserve the right to change the content on any course without prior notification or consultation.

  • In the event of a course being cancelled by The Cooking Shed, you will receive a full refund or a space on another course (whichever you prefer).

  • Classes will only go ahead once we have a minimum of 3 attendees booked on to a class. 

  • Food cooked in the lesson may be eaten on the premises or taken away with you in the containers provided.

  • You will be given instructions on how to store and cook the food taken away by you from The Cooking Shed. It is your responsibility to ensure that these instructions are followed. We cannot accept any responsibility for damaged or ill prepared food once it leaves The Cooking Shed. 

  • We reserve the right to change courses, dates and times.

 

Private dining and events: 

  • In booking a private dining experience or event at The Cooking Shed (or in conjunction with The Cooking Shed and a third party venue), you are booking for the time and date specified on your booking. Once booked, you are not able to change the date and time of attendance unless we receive notice in writing at least four weeks prior to the event date.

  • An administration fee of £5 will be charged to change all bookings if notification is received four weeks prior to the date of your event.

  • All events and bookings are non-refundable unless notification is received at least 4 weeks prior to the event.

  • If you find you are unable to attend an event, you are welcome to send someone in your place, even at very short notice. However, you must notify us in advance if you wish to do this so that we can make any necessary amendments to allow for dietary requirements, and will require advance notice of any allergies or special dietary requirements or need for access.

  • Unless specified, cookery lesson gift vouchers for The Cooking Shed can not be used against private dining events. 

  • We reserve the right to change the content on any menu without prior notification or consultation - so long as it is in keep with the originally agreed menu theme or event format (this is to allow for seasonality of ingredients, and to ensure the freshness and provenance of the food supplied). An example might be - if no octopus is available, squid would be used in its place. 

  • In the event of an event being cancelled by The Cooking Shed, you will receive a full refund or a space on another event (whichever you prefer).

  • The Cooking Shed reserves the right to change the venue of an event, should there be an unavoidable reason for the venue no longer being available (examples include loss of power, flooding, or other unavoidable and unexpected situations) - the alternative venue would be of a similar standard, and you would be consulted in the unlikely event of this occurring to ensure you are happy with the alternative arrangements proposed. 

  • Food supplied for events will often be prepared within the venue's home kitchen environment - therefore we cannot guarantee a totally allergy free environment (nuts, flour, dairy etc. may have been prepared in these kitchens previously, even if they are not going to be included within your dish). Please notify The Cooking Shed of any allergies of intolerances at the time of booking so that this can be discussed.

Food allergies and intolerances

At The Cooking Shed, we are always happy to adapt our recipes to allow for different food allergies or intolerances so long as you let us know in advance of attending a lesson or dining experience, however we do have to notify you that nuts, fish flour, and other potentially reactive ingredients are frequently used in our cooking environments so we cannot guarantee that traces won't be found.
