NEW LucyCooks Restaurant - Open every Friday and Saturday evening....

For a dining experience with a difference why not come and Join us any Friday or Saturday evening here at LucyCooks for our brand new 'Dine with a Difference' restaurant. Why is it different? Well, it’s like being in a restaurant … you’ll have all the ‘LucyCooks’ touches’ candles, music (when the chef’s not talking) great food and wine choices … however, the difference is that our wonderful creative and sociable chefs will spend a little time before you dine giving you some hints and tips in the preparation of great food to serve at home – making it an interactive and sociable evening for everyone at an affordable price.

For many years we have run our Demo and Dine evenings and now due to huge demand and some great feedback about what fun these evenings are, we have decided to offer a similar evening every Friday and Saturday evening for something a little different and for those who are not just wanting to sit in a restaurant/bar for the evening.

Our new evening service will be open to everyone … of all ages, whether you’re dining with family, friends, loved ones or on your own … why not come and join us and experience something to tickle the tastebuds.

There is a set menu (with a vegetarian option if required) and a price tag of £25.00pp for a three course meal of spectacular seasonal food and a selection of short, informative demonstrations ….in a beautiful environment and plenty of culinary expertise from our well-seasoned chefs.
It’s necessary to book in order to guarantee availability … but you don’t need to book months in advance as in our Demo and Dine evenings … the evening commences at 7.00pm. We offer a continental style dining arrangement (everyone sits together) which makes for as sociable, memorable evening for all!
