Why Hire a Chef?

Spend your evening enjoying your guest's company, not washing up


Having a friendly and professional chef prepare your meal, serve, clear and wash up while you relax will mean you can enjoy your guests company, without the usual stress of entertaining. Just eat the food and drink the wine!


Everyone will be catered for, celiac, lactose free or vegan, no probem


Allergies and food intolerances can make eating out a nightmare, booking our service guarantees all your guests dietary requirements and tastes are catered for, with out any additional cost as we can prepare ahead with them in mind.


Create a 'sense of occasion' to be remembered


From Birthdays to Anniversaries and gatherings of family and friends, good food brings people together and makes them happy. Our chefs are specifically trained to make the host feel at ease that their event will be a success from the moment they arrive. Whether it be your first Private Dining Experience or one of many enjoyable times entertaining, we can bring the right level of engagement to the party and add that something extra - a truly personal service.


Private Dining is perfect for those with families or elderly guests


No need for a baby sitter when dining at home, we bring the restaurant to you. Elderly guests who may prefer the comfort of being at home, can also join in the fun too.


It can cost less than eating out


From parking and taxis, to baby sitters and expensive wine, eating out can be pricey. Spend your savings on fine wines instead!


Learn tips and tricks from your Chef


Watch as gorgeous dishes are plated up in front of your very eyes. Learn new skills and ideas and hear interesting chef stories from the other side of the pass, sure to please any fellow foodie!


How does it work?

Your professional chef will bring all the tasty ingredients with them, cook, serve, clear and wash up. For parties of 10 or more your chef may require an assistant; we can provide professional waiting staff and additional chefs if needed.


Choose from our current menu or speak to our team about bespoke options.

Prices start from just £50pp, based on 10 diners enjoying Artisan breads, followed by three courses. We can also offer canapés, sorbet and cheese courses if you feel like a little more indulgence, and why not!


For most events, our clients provide their own crockery, cutlery and glassware. However, we can also supply this, please just ask.
