With the arrival of his baby son, Richard felt it was time for a new direction and developed the concept of ‘Yes Chef Dining’.

  • Yes Chef provided a beautiful 4 course meal for 16 of us for my sister’s hen do. The food was absolutely incredible, as was the service. The pâté in particular was talked about for days afterwards, and the cleaning away was a bonus.
    We will definitely be using their services again- the meal was better than most 5 star restaurants.
    Thanks so much to Yes Chef for making our experience truly memorable!
  • It was a real pleasure to meet Richard, the food was amazing and we have all been raving about it. The food and service was fantastic, thank you again for making our trip so very special.

  • As a group of friends celebrating 45 years of friendship, we wanted to mark the occasion with something special, so we elected for a new experience - home dining. The whole evening proved to be one of the best nights of our 45 year friendship! From choosing our food from Richard’s tempting menu to actually sitting down to eat Richard’s utterly delicious meal proved to be a delight. The whole evening was faultless. Superb food – and Richard’s suggestion that he provide his waiter to serve the meal was the icing on the cake. I cannot recommend Yes Chef Dining highly enough. An experience to treasure.

  • Our family group of 10 were  perfectly catered for. Richard was very friendly, helpful and put himself out to accommodate our dietary needs right from when I first made a booking enquiry. I felt very confident from the start that he would do a great meal for us.  The menu choices were all so good, difficult to choose between them.
    On the evening the food was very well presented and all was beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious.  Lovely to start with an amuse Bouche to set the tone for the evening. Great touch letting the children have one too, they felt very grown up.and really enjoyed them. Wil our waiter for the event was very friendly and efficient. He kept our drinks topped up discreetly, got our food on the table swiftly and the plates disappeared like magic between the courses.
    Both Richard and Will’s  personalities added to our evening. Nothing seemed too much trouble.
    Our daughter, whose birthday we were celebrating together, has travelled much and is a bit of a foodie. She said the meal “was right up there “.
    Overall a perfect  evening thanks to Richard’s excellent culinary skills  and having an outstanding waiter, who obviously also knows a thing or to about food and wine pairing. Great team.
    Lastly, as one would hope for, Richard was completely self sufficient. He arrived, discreetly unpacked everything, got on with it all and not seen throughout till we asked him to come in for a well earned round of applause. We never heard him or Wil clearing/packing up and the kitchen was left spotless. You would never know they had been there.

  • We hired a large house for my mum’s 60th birthday and booked Richard to cook a 3 course meal for 14 of us. Richard was so helpful and patient throughout the booking process and assisted in making some changes to the menu due to some of the fussy eaters in my family! Richard and the waitress were both wonderful on the evening of the meal. Prompt, friendly and efficient, the food was absolutely delicious. Richard came out to introduce each course which was a lovely touch. Every single one of us thought the food was amazing and we felt truly spoiled. The oven in the home seemed to be a little temperamental as some of us struggled at breakfast, but this was not an issue for Richard as the food was perfectly cooked. We can’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks again!

  • Richard is a gifted chef who takes his work very seriously. He is brilliant at communication and will happily accommodate intolerances, allergies, likes and dislikes. He is always punctual and arrives with all the kit he needs to produce a wonderful mealtime. He leaves my kitchen as spick and span as when he arrived. He cleans everything up afterwards and makes the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and so easy. Richard works with seasonal fruit and vegetables where possible and produces some beautiful menus for you to select from. It may take 2 or 3 chats to confirm the exact menu but nothing is too much trouble for him. The food is wonderful and he clearly enjoys what he does. Whilst he's in the kitchen he may be chatting to my family during the day or our guests in the evening but he doesn't seem to mind and will happily chat away whilst he cooks. He's also trustworthy as we have left him in the house to do his food prep whilst we've gone out.

    Richard is a amazing chef and I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Following a disappointing effort from our usual business lunch supplier I decided to give Yes Chef a try and I am SO glad I did.

    The quality of the food, which is pleasing to both the eye AND the tastebuds, is outstanding and the service could not be better.  They even managed to provide the most AMAZING lunch with just an hour's notice.  I could not recommend them highly enough.

  • We are delighted to endorse the service provided by Yes Chef Dining, we used the at home dining experience for a small dinner party recently.

    The food and presentation was simply wonderful and it made the whole evening a great experience for Elizabeth and me as well as our guests

    We have an open plan kitchen/diner and having Richard cooking and doing the preparation for the next course was very much part of the overall experience.

    Elizabeth and I have no hesitation in recommending their services and we fully intend to use them again

  • We contacted Richard from Yes Chef with a very last minute request to cater a gathering for 80 people. That was the day before New Year’s Eve, and the gathering was one week later. Not only did Richard ensure that all the “paper work” (menu choice, prices, contracts, etc.) were taken care of quickly and professionally, but he was available anytime for queries and arrangements, above and beyond regular working hours.

    On the day of the gathering, the quality of the food was nothing short of premium. It was fresh, some being actually prepared on-site to ensure the best possible flavor, beautifully presented and abundant. Our guests were very impressed with the food, and we received many positive comments.

    I would recommend Yes Chef anytime, and would not hesitate for a second to use their services again in the future!
