Great hen do experience

Rating: 9

Emily Y attended Bespoke Events in June 2012, reviewed on 9 July 2012

I booked the School of Wok via Edible Experiences for my friend's hen party. She loves cooking so we chose an Asian cooking class for 16 people. The staff and premises were really nice and they didn't rush us -- we were a pretty chaotic bunch. The level of cooking was right for the range of people -- practical for the time allotted and they gave us all the fun bits. After the cooking, we sat and ate what we'd made and played hen party games -- it was a relaxed set up. My friend had a great time and we felt in good hands.
