Amazing food. We organized a BBQ for my husband’s birthday. They were so professional and created a beautiful relaxing atmosphere with top class food! Highly recommend them. Simon made this amazing fennel salad, Jacob was the best waiter ever and Edward was our chef cooking the most delicious BBQ. Thanks very much again!

Edward and his team did an outstanding job for my birthday lunch for 33 guests. The food was exceptional as was their highly professional, friendly and engaging service. We will use them again, as will a number of our guests I suspect.

They were an amazing team, providing exceptional service and the finest food and drinks. Not for one moment did we nit consider them full value for the money. They started work the moment they arrived and left having cleaned down the kitchen. A great team we would welcome back

Whatever search engine or recommendation has brought you this far you can stop looking now. Edward and his team are absolutely superb. Of course the food is exceptional but it's the whole package - service, discretion, knowledge, organisation, logistics - that make them so good. They bring everything, take everything away, no fuss and you don't have to lift a finger, just concentrate on enjoying the evening. Highly highly recommended.

We had the tasting menu for 10 people and the food was wonderful - definitely up there with food at London's best restaurants. And Ed and his team were an absolute delight to have in the house - completely professional and attentive, but also very relaxed and friendly. Can't recommend them highly enough!
