    Anyone else experience extreme frustration trying to book online? After one half hour of page finally loading, checking spaces, finding a slot and by the time the page goes to next page, slot is gone.

      Yes but I just got through. Don't try on a Mac it will drive you nuts. The crappy booking site and their lack of a proper server (hypothesizing) means they didn't adequately prepare for this.

          I don't know if it was any better on Macs but when I tried to use my wifes laptop it was a pain.. even with firefox. I finally got in on my PC. I guess this is a live and learn lesson for them.

            We weren't able to get a slot and are on a waiting list. I'm surprised the slots went so fast. Have people who got through heard from The Cookery for confirmation?

              I hope it goes without saying that we all want to hear how it goes and what you eat if you do end up going. Good luck!

                I got the typical confirmation email.. I tried it on both Firefox and Safari on mac without luck and then tried it a few times on firefox on PC. It was a mix of the servers not being able to handle it and a shoddy piece of web software.
