Allergens Policy

We endeavour to accommodate dietary requirements including allergies and intolerances; however we would appreciate it if you could notify us in advance so that we can amend menus to suit or can offer you an alternative dish.

While we do our best to reduce the risk of cross-contamination in The Cook School, we have a legal responsibility to inform you that all 14 major allergens are handled on site so we CANNOT guarantee that any of our dishes are ‘free from’ allergens and therefore cannot accept liability in this respect.

Guests with severe allergies are advised to asses their own level of risk and consume dishes at their own risk.

Please call us on 01595694324 if you would like to discuss any allergies or dietary requirements further.
