The Royal Berkshire
The hotel is housed within a stunning redbrick Queen Anne building and sits in 15 acres of beautiful grounds which boast a walled garden and stunning fountain plaza. It is a splendid venue to relax in with colleagues as well as impress clients and offers top of the range conference facilities for executives wishing to spend a day away from the office. In the warmer months there are additional options for al fresco cooking and dining and an impressive range of outdoor activities. The hotel can host up to 20 delegates for a cookery event.
The Royal Berkshire is perfectly situated being close to major road, rail and air travel networks, within 8 miles of the M25, M4 and M3 motorways, just 1.5 miles from Ascot train station and 13 miles from London Heathrow Airport.
Why Choose a Cookery Event?
Our experienced and highly trained chefs will run the event by pitching teams against each other to cook a number of dishes against the clock. The activity challenges delegates on their skills in teamwork, organisation and leadership!
The reason why a cookery event is so successful is because food is a universal language that we enjoy everyday. This creates a level playing-field for those involved which breaks down barriers between colleagues from all levels of your organisation, everyone is relaxed, has fun and gets to enjoy the fruits of their labour at the end of the challenge.
A cookery team building event lasts for approximately 2-3 hours, or longer with additional cookery and food related activities and icebreakers. We offer a wide range of exciting cuisines to choose from. The timings of your event are flexible and can take place during the day or the evening. Read on below for a typical itinerary and menu choice.
