The Old School’s commercially equipped kitchen has been fitted to the highest specifications to offer catering space suitable for professional businesses. It includes a large turbo fan oven, an induction hob with four plates, two fridges, a heated cupboard, a commercial glass washer, a large water urn, two sinks and plenty of work space.
The kitchen comes with its own cutlery and crockery set for 70 people, plus some basic kitchen utensils.
The kitchen is particularly suitable for guests who hire the whole building, and who use professional caterers, but the kitchen is also available to those hiring the café space and hall who would like to serve refreshments.
Commercial hirers are expected to supply copies of their public liability insurance and their environmental health certification for their permanent work space.
If you would like to include the hire of the kitchen with the hire of the hall or café space, please speak to us directly about the cost, which will depend upon the type of use.
The rates below relate to guests who are hiring the kitchen as a separate space on it’s own.
If you are hiring the whole building for a private party or event there will be a flat fee of £50 for use of the kitchen.
Please note that during school term time the kitchen is used Monday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm. During school holidays the kitchen is freely available during the week, unless already hired by someone using the café space or hall.
