Young chef with over 20 years experience from high end fine dining to top end gastro pubs and luxury hotels !

Chef Alan's reviews
We chose Alan Irwin as our chef for my husbands birthday celebration. He was the first chef that came back to me and he had also been highly recommended by a friend. He did not disappoint and made our evening more than special. I would highly recommend Alan and most certainly would and will use him again. Michelin star food and service! J. Smith Kent

We were blown away by Chef Alan. He totally surpassed expectations in every way and made for a very special 70th birthday lunch. We’ve been telling all our friends about him so if he has availability recommend snapping him up! You won’t be disappointed.

From my first engagement through to Alan leaving - he was awesome. The food was unbelievable but Alan is such a fabulous host as well - talking about his background, the dishes he's preparing was all part of such an amazing night. Would highly recommend and will be using again.

Chef Alan was professional, friendly and most importantly great at what he does. The presentation of the food was excellent and the menu delightful. I unreservedly recommend him and am already looking for an excuse to book him again.
