Making a booking of a personal chef will bring the restaurant to you
Julian will prepare and cook for you in your own home or holiday let. Therefore, unlike in a restaurant where the chef/s cater for a large number of different groups of people, a personal chef is catering specifically for you, the customer who booked them, and your guests.
When you book Private chef Lake district you can relax in the knowledge that wherever you are, we’ll provide you with the best private chef available who is more than capable of delivering the restaurant-quality experience you desire in the comfort of your own home.

Just wanted to pop you a quick email to say WOW!
Thank you so, so much for our amazing meal last night. It was absolutely delicious and a real highlight of our day.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
We’re actually holding our blessing and ‘big wedding’ at Longlands next year on 2nd July if you were available (and willing) to cater for larger groups? It would be for about 60-70 people. Absolutely no worries if not, just wanted to put feelers out
as we adored your food and thought you were great.
Booked Julian for my mum's birthday as a suprise, literally couldn't fault our experience. Julian was responsive and helpful from the start. Arriving promptly, the food was outstanding and the professionalism second to none. He was friendly and made us feel very comfortable. Mum said it was the best meal she's had in years. We had a little one sleeping so ideal for us as an alternative option to going out. Very reasonable price too. Would definitely recommend and cannot wait to be able to do it again and try some more of Julian's delicious food!!
Fantastic experience with easily some of the most delicious food I have ever had. I could not recommend Julian's service as The Cumbrian Chef highly enough, it made a long awaited family reunion and birthday celebration a truly memorable experience. Every single detail was perfect and the meal was simply beautiful. Julian was so friendly and kind and was happy to talk to us about the food when I started asking about how things were made. Just a completely luxurious experience, and best of all no dishes to clean up at the end of the night!!! Cheers, Julian!
We are delighted with our experience with chef Julian, which exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious. As a group with many vegetarians, we are always worried about veggie options being less interesting - that was not at all the case. In the days leading up to our dinner, Julian communicated clearly with us, assessing our equipment and ensuring he would have nice plates for presentation. He also showed great flexibility with arrival time and kindly played along as we were trying to surprise our friend, who was celebrating his 40th birthday. On the day, Julian also showed a lot of consideration to COVID-19 safety, discussing our preferences, and wearing a mask to protect our little ones. He also kindly brought extra food and treats for the kids to try (we hadn't ordered food for them and had prepared a separate dish). I would recommend it!
Chef Julian was fantastic from start to finish. He called me a couple of days before the event to go over everything - we had hired a property for the weekend and being unsure of the quantity of what was there, Julian brought some plates as well just in case. He was very well prepared. On the evening, Julian was fantastic, he was friendly, personable and couldn't have done any more for us. All the food was incredible and was the same, if not better, than restaurant quality but with the personal touch of getting to see the chef. He also left the kitchen cleaner than what I think it was before he came!! Would definitely do this again and the whole party was so impressed and gave the wow factor to the weekend that I was looking for. Thank you so much for all your hard work!!"
