We booked Real Food Chefs to help celebrate my wife’s birthday with a small dinner party. Marcus and Davis were warm, friendly, the food was fantastic and the kitchen was left sparkling clean. From our initial booking Marcus offered a brilliant menu with lots of variety and kept us up to date in the run up to our event about the great local produce he’d be using, which was a really nice touch. On arrival Marcus and Davis were so friendly, we felt instantly comfortable having them there. They were there to answer any questions and tell you about the food, but not intrusive and never too much. The main event, the food, was phenomenal and was incomparable to our other experiences with private chef hire. The flavours were well balanced, food beautifully cooked and well presented…so good I forgot to take any pictures! As a meat eater, I’m always reluctant to try my wife’s vegetarian dish, however the vegetarian wellington was so tasty I had to try it a couple of times. At the end of an amazing three courses, I headed to the kitchen, nervous of what I’d find and to my complete surprise the kitchen was tidier and cleaner than Marcus had fount it, crazy considering he’d prepared so many different dishes for each course. Thank you again for a lovely evening, we will be booking Real Food Chefs again soon.

Can’t thank Marcus enough. He saved the day by, at last minute notice, providing an amazing BBQ feast of marinated ribs, succulent shoulder of lamb, mini marinated chicken fillets and burgers with a range of salads and home made bread for a special family celebration of 20 people at the Calvert Trust Lodges in Kielder on 22 June 2019. He was warm, friendly and quietly efficient, delivered to time and provided everything needed, including the clearing up to ensure a successful evening. 🥳⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Exceptionally high level of restaurant quality food in the great outdoors. The activity of the evening almost became watching Marcus prepare the food! Its rare to find such quality translate into larger group BBQ's however Marcus was excellent and a very pleasant guy to boot. I would highly recommend and will look to use in the future.
