Alan was fantastic. Chatted with us when we wanted conversation and left to ourselves when we didn't. The food was truly great and Alan showed flexibility in his menu right up until the week before. Truly fantastic evening and a great way to enjoy brilliant food.

Alejandro Carbonell was amazing! He done an amazing menu to suit our taste buds! The food, presentation and service was 10/10. The kitchen was left spotless! I will definitely use them again! Great team!

Sheryl - Nov 20, 2020

An absolutely lovely experience that I would thoroughly recommend. A real treat during these scary times, in fact a fantastic treat at any time, and a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion.

Marc Preston - Jul 8, 2020

Rob was fantastic. The food was exceptional and the presentation was delightful. We can’t wait to have him back again in the future and try another cuisine. We would highly recommend him.

Matt Courtneidge - Jun 10, 2020

5/ 5

I have never previously had a private chef experience but hopefully it won't be the last time. Rob had put in a huge amount of prep. The food was amazing. He also struck the right balance between leaving us to enjoy our dinner party, and being engaging and chatting with us when we wanted to ask him questions (which you will want to do when the food is THIS good).

Adam Hewitt - Oct 7, 2019

Chris Bourne - Aug 3, 2020

I would highly recommend Paul. His Italian/Japanese fusion menu was perfect for the occasion and also delicious. Paul took the time to answer our questions and was very interesting to chat to. His skill & attitude made for an excellent evening!

5/ 5

From the moment Alex walked into the door the experience begun. A smile on his face ended up with a smile on all our faces with the high quality and attention to detail of all the food through the evening. Every dish had our taste buds going to a place like never before. Alex as a person is friendly and professional and as the night went on we all enjoyed getting to know him more. The cocktails were nicely done and even the one member who does not normally drink them were asking for more. I will certainly be recommending him to friends and family. Its an experience not to be missed. I cannot recommend Alex highly enough.

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!

Chef Michael is an incredibly talented and special chef. He cooked for six of us for my 30th birthday and truly made the evening - every guest was blown away by the quality and generosity of his food. Every touch and addition was exceptional and we couldn’t have been happier with the end result. He catered to all of our dietary needs and preferences and he was also clean and tidy throughout! We really enjoyed having Chef Michael cook for us and his company and general engagement was just wonderful. Thank you!!!

Priya Patel - Oct 12, 2020

5/ 5

Firstly it was the menu that made us go for Alan and he really delivered. Lovely food, prepared and presented beautifully. All 5 courses were excellent. Alan also made the evening tick perfectly. It was a Valentine’s dinner but we chose to eat in the kitchen/diner so we could see him at work which was great and Alan was a lot of fun to chat to. Definitely recommend Alan.

Chef Darius provided a seamless dining experience from start to finish. He was even able to provide extra cutlery/dishes if they were required. The food was presented exceptionally and tasted even better! My guests and I were extremely impressed by the service and menu offered by Chef Darius - our personal favourite was the fillet of steak, which was cooked to everyone’s requirements. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a stress-free and exceptional dining experience in the comfort of their home. As an added bonus to the evening the kitchen was left spotless! Thanks again Chef!
