The gourmet heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells can be found in the lower Pantiles – the home of Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School.
The School is housed within The Corn Exchange, a beautiful three-storey regency building, with a Domestic and Professional School, event spaces for Private Celebrations and Corporate Functions.
Every aspect of the school has been personally designed to Rosemary’s exacting specifications; and no expense has been spared to provide students with both up-to-the minute kitchen technology and luxurious styles.
We are delighted to present a new addition to the School - our luxurious,new suite on the second floor, The Dining Room, perfect for private celebrations and corporate functions.
Rosemary and her team firmly believe in supporting local suppliers and produce, sourcing the best of the seasons crops, while keeping the carbon footprint and food miles low.

Courses are suitable for home cooks at every level, from the complete novice to the confident and highly skilled.
