Tutors and chefs were brilliant, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, caring. They genuinely wanted you to succeed, I left feeling that had better go home and build my own oven or I'll disappoint Steve!!!

Response from RCHQ | Property representative |
Hi there - it's smart / casual but with sturdy shoes, we are a farm with uneven ground. Also, layers are good in case it rains or turns cooler in the evening. Jeans are acceptable. In fact, pretty much anything goes!
