Our experience with Chef Alan was fantastic from start to finish. You might think it would be weird having someone cook for you in your house, but Alan's friendly and personable demeanor made the experience really enjoyable. Alan produced for us a 7 course taster menu, in which every mouthful was absolutely delicious and I could not find any fault with it. Alan came prepared with his own crockery and cutlery which really added to the experience and definitely added a feeling of being in a restaurant. There was not a thing I would have changed. I would definitely recommend Alan (and have already done so) to anyone thinking about having a private chef.'
On the scale of 1 to 5 it would be a firm 5.
Thanks again Alan, we really did have a fantastic time.

Darius cooked for me and my husband to celebrate his 30th birthday. What an evening we had! Darius was so friendly and relaxed he is clearly an expert in what he does. Not only did he prepare us amazing food, he shared his expertise with us and had great conversation. The food was exquisite better than any restaurant I have been to. I can’t thank Darius enough for such a wonderful evening, we will definitely be booking again!

Chef Artan was absolutely incredible. He arrived promptly, (in appropriate PPE) cooked beautiful food, explained our dishes thoroughly and left the kitchen extremely clean on departure! The beef fillet that he cooked for my partner was delicious, I would highly recommend! The whole experience was flawless, and I would definitely use Artan again for any future meals. 10/10!
