Catering for our daughters wedding in September, Alex gave us seamless service and delicious food.

– JD

Alex is the most wonderful chef. His inspirational cooking is of the highest quality and his calm demeaner makes for a stress free experience.

– SH

Alex catered for my family when we rented a beautiful Cotswolds home last summer. Both dinners, including one to which we invited guests, were exceptional. Alex is a wonderfully friendly, pleasant and sincere individual. We would recommend Alex to anyone looking to enjoy a fantastic meal.

– CS

I have had the pleasure of knowing Alex for several years. He regularly caters for dinners here at the Court and other venues for between 16-20 guests. His cooking always delights our guests, who have often said ‘That is the best I’ve ever had.’, be it a delicious pudding or perfectly cooked and presented fish dish. He is innovative, versatile, reliable and unflappable! Highly recommended.

– JY

We cannot praise Alex highly enough! He catered our COVID wedding with gorgeous canapes and a beautiful two course meal for our guests. Alex listened to us and helped create a varied and exciting menu of our favourite foods. Nothing ever felt too much trouble – he was professional, personable and unflappable even when cooking in a kitchen completely unknown to the both of us! The biggest compliment had to be all the cleared dinner plates, and not a left-over in sight! We couldn\’t recommend him enough and look forward to any future excuse to hire him again.
