Chef Alan's reviews

4.9/ 5

Chef Alan cooked for my wife's 40th and he and is team did an amazing job. Alan is a great guy and his team are lovely and professional, his dishes look and taste incredible, he recommended some excellent wines, he went above and beyond with extras we really weren't expecting throughout the evening. It was a very special evening and we'd recommend Alan 100%.

We were looking for a high-end dining experience for our 5 years anniversary. Alan transformed our dining room into a chef's table, and at all times we felt like we were in a Michelin star restaurant. Alan was entertaining and engaging; needless to say the food was fantastic! He was really attentive to our needs both at the booking stage and during our dinner. The presentation of each dish was immaculate, and we would certainly book him again.

Alan was amazing. His food was absolutely insane, every single course (and surprise course!!) was utterly delicious. He was extremely helpful in putting the menu together beforehand when people in our party of 14 couldn't eat something. He arrived with his assistant and I wasn't allowed to lift a finger, he literally just got on with everything without hesitation and when they left it was like they hadn't even been there, it was spotless! Will be booking him again and would recommend to everyone! 5*! Thank you!

Alan gave us a great private dining experience. We will definitely use engage his services again. We had a joint 60th birthday celebration in a beautiful rented house. Alan gave us the best experience we could have hoped for, such flexibility, efficiency, the food was stunning. We had several surprise courses as well as the most delicious canapés which were ver substantial, immaculately presented. We all thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening and would recommend Alan to anyone wanting a special night ….., so much nicer than going to a restaurant. Thanks Alan so much.
