“Mark,Thank you for a brilliant night. The meal was amazing. I will definitely come to you again if we need a similar event”. Jenny and Paul.

“I recently had Mark to come and cook dinner for my partner’s 30th birthday. Nothing was too much trouble and Mark didn’t mind my constant telephone calls with queries and suggestions. He also spent time going through every detail of my meal to make sure that everything we had was perfect and to our taste. Not only was the food out of this world, the presentation was beautiful. Something I never will forget and cannot wait for the next time!” Gemma Flaherty

“I recently celebrated a “special” birthday at one of Grove Cottage’s properties and Mark was recommended to look after our catering needs. We had 18 guests and after consultation with Mark decided upon a buffet style party menu. Mark came back to us with very interesting and delicious dishes to choose from for each course. We spent a long time speaking over the phone ensuring that everything had been thought of and that everyone was being catered for. The party was a great success and everyone commented on how delicious the food was. I felt that Mark was completely in control of the catering side of the evening and very professional which meant I didn’t have to worry about a thing”. Linda Walker

“Mark, following a detailed email conversation in preparation for this meal I knew we were in for a treat as your attention to detail and, on the night, your definitely love of the art of cooking and food was clear.The whole evening was magic with each course immaculately presented and delicious to taste. The meal was professionally executed and beautifully presented. The combination of excellent surroundings and a nice social ambience during the evening made this special occasion for my wife the highlight of our weekend at The Guildhall.We would definitely consider using your services again”. Karen, Jon, Tracey and Jim

“I recently returned to the U.K to celebrate my mothers birthday. My wife and I arranged a cottage and also hired Mark Peters to create a bespoke meal based upon my mothers rather finicky requirements. My expectations of the meal and Marks professionalism were not only met by surpassed in all areas. The food was as expected from a professional Chef, but the difference was Mark’s attention to detail and his commitment to our total satisfaction from beginning to end.Introducing the set courses, describing the preparation and content of the dishes was really something special.My mother was overjoyed and expressed to us this was the best birthday ever! What more could I ask. I can wholeheartedly recommend Mark and would advise anyone who can appreciate great food and excellent customer service to hire him. Just imagine, and Mark will deliver”.
