Pizza making class was great fun. The chef was entertaining and kept the group on track. Great session- last 3 hours, but could have been longer as the time flew. Bread sticks, dough balls and pizza all made and then eaten. Highly recommend

Avoid the hassle and go somewhere else. Somewhere that appreciates their customers and doesn't engage in deceitful practices. Due to circumstances beyond my control (Mother Nature) I was forced to cancel my attendance at one of their classes. Maria received approval from her GM Chris...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
