Experiences with the Thomas Carr Dining Team


Cocktail Masterclass

Looking for a fun activity with friends?

Are you in Ilfracombe for a Hen or Stag Weekend?

Why not join us for a fun afternoon of cocktail making!
Join us at the Seafood & Grill for an afternoon of all things cocktail!

Our cocktail maestros will spend 2 hours with you expertly helping you make three delicious cocktails using a range of methods and techniques which will make you feel like Tom Cruise in 'Cocktail' in no time!

Obviously all of your hard work will be rewarded as you'll then get to drink your creations, and please bear in mind that our cocktails use generous measures so book your taxi in advance!

With a bar stocked with over 40 gins, premium spirits and huge array of botanicals, syrups and garnishes we are perfectly placed to create some fantastic drinks with you!

Our masterclasses run from 4-6pm so they are a perfect warm up to a big night out, or a great way to spend a birthday afternoon.

Groups need to be a minimum of 6 people and the cost is £25 per person to include three cocktails and bar nibbles.

Cookery Masterclass

Do you have dreams of working in a Michelin starred kitchen?

Are you looking for the perfect gift for a foodie friend or family member?

Join Thomas in his kitchen at The Olive Room and learn how to cook like a pro!
Join seafood supremo Thomas Carr at his Michelin Starred restaurant in the beautiful fishing town of Ilfracombe for a day of culinary creativity.

From preparation to presentation, learn tricks of the trade that will help improve your skills and confidence in the kitchen.

Due to the compact size of the kitchen the classes are restricted to two people at a time which enhances the hands on experience as Thomas will always be very close at hand to either help you or demonstrate the steps you need to take to create something delicious.

Following a morning of menu preparation, take a seat in our dining room at the Seafood & Grill and enjoy lunch on us.

Once you have refuelled, you will then join Thomas back in the kitchen for the afternoon to continue learning all the skills and techniques you need to be able to impress your dinner guests back in your own home.

Before you leave you will be presented with signed recipe cards and a Thomas Carr apron.

A days course costs £180pp and all equipment is provided.

To make your experience extra special why not combine your masterclass with a stay in one of our luxurious rooms and dine with us at The Olive Room?
