I typically cater for fine dining private dinners, corporate events and weddings. Two months of the year I work in St Tropez both on yachts and for private clients in villas.
My clients tend to be food lovers with a desire to experiment. The majority of my work comes from referals
Couldn't have been better!
Simon and his wife Alison gave me the most incredible 21st dinner I could have asked for. The food was incredible from the canapés at the beginning to the delicious dessert. They took care of everything which meant I could relax and enjoy my evening. I would definitely use them again and I highly recommend Simon to everyone.
Excellent from beginning to end
Simon catered for my 50 th party for 16 of us
We had a champagne reception with canapés which were absolutely delicious.
We then had a 3 course meal which was fantastic with desserts to die for.
Both Simon and Alison were extremely friendly, fitted in immediately to the group , my friends thought that we had met before and knew him from another event but he just made everyone feel at ease.
The evening ran like clockwork and everything was left pristine with everything tidied away before he left.
Thank you Simon and Alison for a fantastic evening.
I would definitely recommend anyone to use him.
Simon and his wife catered a lovely 3 course dinner for 13 of us. The canapés were beautifully presented and tasted delicious and the three courses that followed were exactly the same. They were very friendly and communication was easy throughout the whole process. And to top it all off they left the kitchen spotless! I would highly recomend them to anyone looking for high quality food at an affordable price. Thanks!
Simon prepared and served canapes followed by a 3 course meal to my family in celebration of my 70th birthday. Prior to the event Simon had contacted me and we discussed the menu and the need to avoid dairy products as I am intolerant to them. Although we knew well in advance what we were getting nothing could have prepared us for the quality and presentation he provided. Everything about the meal was wonderful. I have no reservations at all in recommending Simon to anyone looking for a chef to provide a special meal whatever the occasion.
Fantastic food, and service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Simon and Alison provided the cherry on the cake to a perfect weekend.
Simon provided lunch and evening meal for the Saturday of my wife's 40th birthday celebrations. ALL of our guests raved about the food and service.
Before - Booking and comms were great, Simon provide a great selection of choices, being happy to accommodate any individual needs. I had a few changes late on and Simon accommodated these without any fuss.
During - Effortless. They took over the kitchen and all the beautiful food was swiftly served and removed when finished. We had canapés during the drinks reception that Alison served and it was so high end.
After - A great job of cleaning up.
A great couple going above and beyond. Fantastic.
Absolutely great -would highly recommend to anyone
I would recommend Simon and Alison to anyone who is hoping for a stress-free event. Rapid, effective and friendly communication leading up to our home-based dinner party, including multiple negotiations re the menu (and their choice is fantastic). On the day itself they cheerfully took over all the stressful parts ( including clearing a blocked drain!) and cooked, served and cleared up with friendly efficiency. I couldn't believe how little there was left for me to do, apart from enjoy the dinner party! Our guests have demanded contact details and I will definitely be using them again. And their canapes are to die for!
Brilliant food and personal service
Simon and Alison catered for 40 people for my 60th Birthday Party. They served fantastic canapés followed by a superb buffet and delicious puddings. The food was excellent but the best thing was the lovely manner in which they both interacted. Professional but fun. I could not recommend them more highly if you want good food and great service.
Fantastic Service & Fabulous Food
This was the first time we had used a private chef.
Simon travelled 108 miles to cater for our small get together (of 10 people) and we choose an informal evening and we selected Tapas. Showing that no distance is too far and no number is too small (although we did ask for him to cater for 16 people).
Simon was superb, great food and great service. Simon took all the stress out of the evening from his manners to him washing the last pot after we had finished eating. A great night, I cannot recommend this man highly enough.
We will definitely be using Simon's services again :-)
Excellent food and service!
Simon catered for a hen do I was involved in organising and we were all extremely impressed with him. The kitchen in the cottage we had hired wasn't very big but it wasn't a problem and Simon worked around it. He was extremely friendly and professional and the food was all delicious. He even catered for a gluten free member of our party. Definitely would recommend, 5 stars.
