    Access Statement for The Cook School Scotland LTD

    Introduction

    Situated in the East Ayrshire countryside in the Moorfield Park Industrial Estate. We are a ten minute taxi ride from Kilmarnock town centre. We provide an ultimate cookery experience where you will learn to develop your palate and discover what you love to cook and eat. The Cook School is based on the 1st floor of the building with lift access. We offer a vast rage of classes with many different themes from Thai Street Food to American Diner classes. If you prefer hands on cookery then our day classes are for you, these last approximately 5 hours. If you'd prefer a more relaxed evening then our Demo & Dine classes are perfect for you and they last approximately 3.5 hours. If you would love to cook but just dont have the time then our half day classes last only 2.5 hours and would be more suited to you.

    We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01563 550008 or email info@cookschool.org.
