As you can see there are quite a few changes that we need to make and all of this will affect our income and also our outgoings so we do need to make some changes to our pricing.
Before I update you I just want to reassure all of the people that have rescheduled places that these pricing changes will not affect you – if you are coming by yourself you will be offered a reduced price of £25 to purchase another place for your Pod and if you are coming as a couple you will be in a pod together – the same will apply for Children with rescheduled places on Clubs and Classes
We are very proud of our pricing, I always said when I started my business that I wanted it to be accessible to as many people as possible and that I would rather work harder and longer hours to achieve financial success than have a business that only catered to a certain income bracket.
I have done my best to stick to this and so have come up with Pod pricing rather than a price per person.
Adult Classes will have a Pod Price of £70 per Pod for 2 people which is equivalent to the existing price of £35 per person
Those Pods that can accommodate 3 People will still be charged at £70 unless a 3rd person is requested, we will then add a surcharge of £15 for that extra person which is actually a reduction in price!
We will have 6 socially distanced tables in the Dining Room that you can eat at whilst adhering to guidelines for walking to and from your Pod or you can take your dishes home – we will ask for your choice in advance of the class
Date Nights will be increased to £50 per Pod rather than £40 per couple to account for the reduced capacity available, there is no other way to do this I’m afraid. Guests will be invited to also eat in their Pods if they wish or go to the 6 Socially Distanced tables in the Dining Room being careful to maintain the Social Distancing with staff and other guests. A new Take Home option will also be introduced
Parent & Child Events will also be increased to £50 per Pod BUT this can include up to 3 children with no extra cost. As with all my Parent & Child classes I will increase the amount of ingredients per Pod for additional children and you can then work as a team to create larger dishes to feed all the attendees.
For safety’s sake at the moment we would ask that you take your dishes home to eat as we often have very little ones that find it hard to social distance.
Children’s Classes will have the same policy as the Adults ones both in the kitchen or the under 8’s cooking room with Pods in the kitchen being £50 for a Pod for 2 or £60 for the Pod of 3 (no change from our prices per person and a reduction for 3 children). Classes will run for 2.5 hours
The tables for the younger ones will be charged at £40 per table for 2 children, for larger families and children that are already socialising we can put tables together – these classes will run for a maximum of 2 hours
Phew! I hope that is relatively clear and as always please do get with any questions – you can see why it is going to take a long time to update the website pages and products!
P.S. Guest Chef Classes & Parent and Child Events I have yet to analyse as these are slightly more complicated 🙂
