Terms & Conditions

This page contains our Business Terms and Conditions for classes and workshops followed by our Website Terms and Conditions.  Please note that due to the Covid_19 pandemic we have had to revise some of our terms.  Until further notice please refer to these points within our Covid policy as they currently supersede our normal terms. 

Business Terms and Conditions – classes and workshops

At the end of the day, our priority is that you are happy and that your class, workshop or residential course exceeded your expectations, however we all have to come to an understanding about how we can work together.  Ground rules if you like.  Please read our terms carefully before booking your class with us.  We are totally sincere in our approach and want nothing more than clarity within our business.  Please feel welcome to raise any questions that you may have.

We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time.

All Hallows and All Hallows School for Cooks & Makers are trading names for All Hallows (Dorset) LLP

English Law

All bookings placed are accepted by All Hallows only under these terms and conditions, which shall be governed by English Law.

Placing a Booking

Once we have received a booking enquiry from a client whether verbal or by email and we have confirmed availability we will send you an email with an invoice for either the full amount or deposit, (subject to the date of booking and course cost).  We will then confirm that your place is secured once we have received your deposit or full balance.

If you have any questions before or after you make a class booking, please contact Lisa – telephone number 01725 551185 or email lisa@allhallowsfarmhouse.co.uk

A place on our workshops, classes or residential courses is not secured until a deposit or if applicable full payment has been made.

We cannot hold class places pending payment.

All bookings are bound by these terms and conditions whether made in person, online, over the phone or in writing. By making a booking you are bound by the terms and conditions.

Please make sure that you give us details of any dietary requirements or special needs at time of booking.

Group Bookings  

We welcome group bookings but if booking for someone else, please ensure you inform us of the name(s) and email address(es) of the person(s) who will be attending. If we do not have these details we will forward all of the booking details to the person organising the party, who will also be responsible for confirming any dietary requirements or special needs for the whole group.  The person booking will also be liable for the full payment from the group.

Please do not book places for children under the age of sixteen to attend a class alone.  Children under 16 can join our classes accompanied by an adult who purchases a place to attend.

Information about your class and All Hallows

You will receive an email which will include a comprehensive pack about the courses and classes, our location and any other information we feel you may need once you have booked. If you do have any outstanding questions please do contact us immediately.

Course Content

All Hallows School For Cooks & Makers reserves the right to change the class content at any time.
Our courses, recipes and information throughout are based on opinion and experience.  The information we offer is based purely on our experience in the catering, hospitality and food service industries over many years.  It is therefore based on our opinion.  All written detail and information is our opinion only and is not offered in the form of advice in any way whatsoever.

All Hallows recipes, kitchen skills and techniques

We teach cookery skills and provide recipes throughout our courses at All Hallows.  All of our recipes belong to All Hallows (Dorset) LLP, with the exclusion of guest tutors. By booking and purchasing a course, workshop or class you are free to replicate all of our recipes for your own domestic use.

If you run a cookery school or catering company or intend to run any sort of food service or hospitality business you must not copy or use the same format within your business.  We intend to teach you skills which enable you to develop your own food style and trust, that you will only use your own original ideas when developing your own menus or products.

If you teach cookery or cater or intend to run classes or establish a catering company, in the future, you may not use our course pack, recipes, structures, photographs, teaching techniques, pre class information, notes, copy from the All Hallows School or Provisio websites or copy from emails for your own classes or the promotion of your own classes.
The Course Recipe Folder is purely for your own domestic use and you are prohibited from copying this document (in whole or in part) for distribution in your own classes.
ALL content on either the All Hallows School or the Provisio website and Twitter accounts is the intellectual property of All Hallows (Dorset) LLP.

As stated, the above terms and conditions mean that should you book a class you agree to be bound by these terms. A link to these terms and conditions has been provided on pages which describe the class and course content and terms relevant to booking (such as price and location). These terms and conditions are accessible at all times on our website www.allhallowsfarmhouse.co.uk

Social media

You are welcome to follow us on twitter or share your experience with your friends on other social networking sites.  However we kindly request that all tweets or copy, notes or text shared on any other social media sites, must remain positive and are not in any way, shape or form negative towards All Hallows, our team, our family, guests and especially other people attending the same class.  Please also respect everyone else’s privacy.

If you do have cause to raise an issue, complaint or question, please speak to Lisa directly or in her absence the person hosting your event or delivering your class or workshop. Thank you.

Mobile phones and hand held devices

The mobile reception in Wimborne St Giles is currently very poor.  However we suggest that you respectfully turn your mobile to silent and only use your phone for images during classes.

Phones must be switched to silent during lectures for the residential courses and they are not permitted for use during preparation of food of any class.

Gift vouchers
All Hallows School for Cooks & Makers sells Gift Vouchers which can be redeemed against the price of specific classes. The vouchers are valid for specific classes only.

The vouchers cannot be exchanged for money so you need to use the full value of your voucher against the cost of a class, the recipient must confirm availability of a class via the phone or email to secure their place on a class.  All other terms regarding booking and cancellation apply once the place is confirmed.

When you purchase a Gift Voucher, please do let us know if you would like a gift card to be sent in the post or have a voucher sent to you via email.

Please ensure that you inform us of the correct full name and address for the recipient so that we can post it directly, alternatively it will be posted to your address.

The design and copy for gift vouchers supplied by All Hallows School For Cooks & Makers remain the property of All Hallows (Dorset) LLP

Joining details

Full details about the courses and classes, our location and any other information we feel may you may need will be sent to you by email once you have booked.


We require a minimum non refundable deposit of 50% to secure a place on any class.  If however the course fee is less than £150 we will invoice the full amount.  A deposit is payable within five working days following confirmation of your place.

All balances are due, no less than ten working days prior to the class.  All payments are non refundable and we will contact you prior to the date when your instalment is due, but it is your responsibility to pay by the due date.
If you fail to make a payment of the final balance we reserve the right to allocate your place on a class or workshop to someone else.  If we have contacted you and receive no response and you do not settle the outstanding course fee, when we have requested the balance your place could be forfeited.

Guest Tutors

We select and invite our guest tutors with the utmost of care.  We want to ensure that they uphold the same ethos as we follow at All Hallows.  However we cannot be held responsible for any misunderstandings arisen from guest tutors comments. Neither are we responsible for the late arrival of a tutor, illness or non attendance due to any fault beyond our control.  Please speak with Lisa directly if you have anything you wish to discuss regarding a guest tutor.

Cancellation policy

We do not offer refunds for any reason.  We do however, totally understand that circumstances may arise and you are unable to attend a course, for whatever reason.  In this instance we suggest that you offer the place to someone else to attend.  Please do let us have their full details and all other booking details that were requested from yourself.

We are not able to move your place to another class, on another date, for whatever reason.

It is very unlikely that we will have to cancel a class, but if this occurs due to circumstances beyond our control such as power failure, fire, flood or severe illness.  You will be offered alternative date(s) or if no alternative date is offered by us, we will provide a full refund.  Our liability is limited to the cost of the class or workshop place only. When purchasing a class or workshop with us, you also accept the liability it limited to the cost of your place and no other costs that you may have occurred to attend such as transport (personal or public), family care in your absence such as but not limiting to babysitters or nannies or accommodation.

Refunds will not be provided unless agreed in advance and in writing.  In exceptional circumstances we may be able to reschedule a class but we do not guarantee this, nor does this constitute as an agreement of transferring a class place.  All bookings are considered on an individual basis.


Our preferred payment method is by BACS transfer and full details will be given on your invoice.

Cheques that are returned will incur a fee of £50.00 to the issuer and overdue accounts will be charged at the rate of 5% over Natwest’s base lending rate, in force on the due date.  Interest will be charged on any outstanding balance until the date of payment, accruing on a daily basis (both before and after judgement). Invoices for interest shall be issued and fall due on the same way as for those for supply of goods and service and may be sued on, as contract debt.

Arriving on the morning

Please do not arrive late.  We understand that given difficult travelling conditions sometimes this is unavoidable.  However, we have to be fair to any other people on the class, so we always start promptly. Due to other business commitments, we will always end the class or workshop at the designated time.

Accommodation at All Hallows Farmhouse

Loss or damage to goods

We cannot be held responsible for accidental damage so please ensure that your property is covered by your own insurance.  We do not accept responsibility for personal property that is left at the owner’s risk in cloakrooms at All Hallows Farmhouse.  Please remember to remove all of your property when you leave.  We are willing to post any items that you forget or mistakenly leave behind, but we do charge the postage/packaging costs for such items.

If any of our property is stolen during a private group booking or event we will invoice the person booking the event (client) for the costs occurred.

Bespoke events, classes or workshops

Our bespoke proposals are valid for four weeks, and are subject to written confirmation from All Hallows (Dorset) LLP or our trading names.  Upon receipt of a proposal you will be offered first refusal for a group booking or event.  However we are not able to hold this date for you without payment of a deposit.  Please read our full booking details and terms for groups above.

We will however do everything in our possible power to ensure that your class, workshop or event is carried out to our very best ability.
