Exeter Cookery School


As well as operating as a first class cookery school, Exeter Cookery School's sophisticated venue is ideal for hosting small-scale conferences / press launches and exclusive events. Ideally located in the idyllic waterside setting of Exeter Quay, and with a choice of excellent transport links, this is a unique venue. Whether you are looking for an exciting and unusual event space for venue-hire only, or would like Exeter Cookery School to help host an event with superior quality catering and a friendly team, this is a superb option.


Exeter Cookery School's owners, Jim and Lucy Fisher, take great pride in their beautiful venue and offer a very professional service, with great flexibility to ensure the very best experience for their customers. A previous Masterchef semi-finalist, Jim has gained an enviable reputation both with his peers and home cooks alike, and is enthusiastic to share his knowledge and expertise to help guests at Exeter Cookery School achieve their full culinary potential.


We can offer:

- Canapé events

- Venue hire

Exeter Cookery School is also perfect for hen dos with a little extra 'je ne sais quoi' - learn how to make pasta, spin sugar or create the creamiest of ice cream all in a stunning venue. Another popular option is a cook and dine experience, where you learn how to cook a set two course menu and then sit down to enjoy eating it together. Our bespoke tables transform from work surfaces to create an idyllic private dining setting, making the experience all the more memorable. If you have some less confident cooks among you, worry not, as Jim and his team will look after you every step of the way and coax your inner chef out.
