Foodies of Bristol:

Stand up and smell the freshly baked granola.

The Cookhouse is a culinary hub on Gloucester Road. Join us to celebrate outrageously good, healthy food

The place to be

The Cookhouse combines a fully equipped food studio, beautiful private dining club and vibrant weekday canteen with open-plan kitchen. Hire the versatile studio space for workshops, healthy cookery classes, training sessions and food photography.  Or check out the culinary experiences and ethnic supper clubs we’ve got lined up in our dining club over the next few months.

It’s all about the food

We love food. At the Cookhouse everything is made freshly in our kitchen and is the kind of food we like to serve to our friends. It’s healthy stuff; flavoursome foods that taste good and help you face the rest of the day with a little spring in your step.

Our canteen is open for breakfast, lunch, healthy snacks, excellent coffee and exquisite teas.

The Space

Breathe in the uplifting aromas drifting from the kitchen and become a tiny bit healthier just by reading the menu. Our canteen is a cosy, contemporary lounge serving post-workout smoothies, pre-reiki green teas and generous doses of inspiration for those looking for a creative spark. Mums on the run, smoking hot dates, aspiring novelists – we’re here for you.

Chefs – welcome. We think the Cookhouse might be one of the coolest spaces to raise your profile. Wow this crowd of Bristol foodies in our food studio or dining club and your business could grow overnight. Promote your own menu, launch a new project or share your culinary knowledge and watch the bookings grow.

Our Story

The Bristol Cookhouse concept is led by nutritional chef, Sam Waterhouse. After many years spent travelling the world catering for high-profile clients, Sam returned to the UK, gained her MSc. in nutrition and now runs food and cookery workshops in Bristol. She spends the rest of her time keeping fashion and music celebrities on the straight and narrow by filling their kitchens with healthy menus. Take a sneak peek at some of her recipes.

Sam says, ‘Born in Malaysia she returned to the UK and grew up not far from here. My great grandfather was a master baker and confectioner just down the road on Newfoundland Street during WW2. My overriding childhood memories are of watching him decorate elaborate cakes, helping in his kitchen and collecting armfuls of fresh produce from his vegetable garden. I was always destined to have a career in food, and I’m so pleased that it’s now back in Bristol.’

Sam will be running some of the workshops at the Bristol Cookhouse. Sign up here and you can be one of the first to book in.
