Nick was brilliant. Friendly, flexible and great food. The whole process from booking to deciding the menu to the evening itself was smooth, enjoyable and stress free. My mum was thrilled with her surprise for her 70th birthday meal and I hope to use Nick’s services for more events in future. Why pay for restaurant overheads and babysitters when you can spend this money on having restaurant quality food served in your home, personalised to your event, tastes and any individual preferences? And the washing up is done for you too!

I cannot thank Nick enough. From the time of my initial enquiry for a meal for my daughter and her boyfriend's 30th birthday celebration, he was nothing but professional and friendly. Absolutely fabulous!! Nick gave suggestions and answered all of my queries quickly. He provided much needed support for my plans. Nick's costs were extremely reasonable compared to many others I received and he ensured I was happy with everything we spoke about from the menu to the actual timings for the evening. He and Raluca on the night were marvellous and everything went according to the plan. They cleaned everything away before leaving and were complete professionals. Everyone immensely enjoyed the food prepared and nothing was left. I would have no hesitation in contacting Nick again should I need this type of service and would undoubtedly recommend him to others. Thank you Nick! Five stars +++

Nick was just excellent again for the working lunch and dinner we had yesterday. The Sea bass for lunch was just excellent and the roast chorizo and green bean salad with lemon and ginger humus was amazing, they was 2 of Nick's dishes.
I can not recommend Nick enough.
Thank you, once again.
