Personal chef available

For a truly relaxing break or for a one off special occasion, why not have your meals provided by your very own personal in house chef?

He will shop for you if required and cook meals to your requirements and make sure that you don’t have to worry at all about food and drink during your stay with us. You can hire him for a special dinner or for the whole week. You and the other guests in your party can even get involved in preparing the meal.

If you are coming from overseas, why not let your personal chef put together a traditional English, Irish, Scottish or Welsh meal for you. He will even talk you through some of the ingredients and techniques used to cook the meal if you would like to know more about them.

For more details please contact Rob Coggin at Strictly Food.
