The Cumbrian Chef Services

A short video about The Cumbrian Chef

and what my services offer

The Cumbrian Chef Experience

A customer review of using

The Cumbrian Chef experience

Private Chef 

What do I offer?


I offer a unique & truly

special experience brought directly to your home or

holiday let.


I combine a personal chef hire service with fine dining restaurant quality cuisine, which is designed to be affordable, accessible &  simple for you.

In my role of a private chef, I will take care of everything, such as purchasing the ingredients and preparing the dishes. Subsequently, I complete the plated service in your kitchen and I will tidy up the kitchen before leaving. This service allows you to entertain your friends or family, which has never been so simple and stress-free.


Dinner Parties 

Please browse my menu selection please note these menus are a guideline of the style of catering I offer.

 I can create a menu that is to meet the needs and requirements of specifications for your event.


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.


Event Catering 

The Cumbrian chef has a wealth of experience in event catering 

Great event catering makes an event memorable and sets it apart from the rest.

 That’s what we will bring though the Cumbrian Chef. Just ask and we will show examples of what we have done and work with you to make your event sparkle.

The Cumbrian Chef will help you impress without the stress. Whether it’s a birthday party, hen night, anniversary, staff Christmas party or wedding, my team and I are here to make sure you have a fantastic event and a meal that you can enjoy with your guests.

Julian cooked a three course dinner for 11 guests at my hen do, plus canapés beforehand. Everything was absolutely perfect, the food choices all sounded delicious and there was something for everyone’s different tastes.

The food itself was unbelievable, such a delicious meal, everyone absolutely loved it! Each dish was beautifully presented, and tasted even better!! It was better than any top restaurant I have been to and in the comfort of your own accommodation, amazing!!

Julian was very professional and the service was excellent, there were no delays despite the size of the group, he explained each course while serving, and left the kitchen absolutely sparkling.

I hope we get to book him again, very very highly recommend!

I just wanted to reach out to say a huge thank you from us to you and your lovely family team for everything you did for us at

Bristowe Hill last Sunday! The food was simply perfect … More than we could have hoped for! We truly enjoyed every course.

Everything was just so delicious.

Right down to the special details, such as Liz serving us a board of vegan canapés just for the 2 of us, so we got to try everything, was so thoughtful, and we also really enjoyed the vegan cheeses in the evening!  So thank you for sourcing these for us.

We’ve had all of our guests saying how delicious the food was, and it really did make our day extra special.

So a big thank you from the both of us for everything!!

Julian's catering is a 5 star service! Julian and Liz arrived punctually and brought everything they needed.

The cooking and table services were carried out very professionally and unobtrusively and the kitchen was left spotless.
We enjoyed 2 evenings of catered meals whilst staying in Grasmere to celebrate my birthday with 2 groups of friends.

We ordered from the Buttermere menu on the first night and from the Windermere menu on the second.

All dishes were beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked! 5 stars in every way!

We're just home after a fabulous birthday celebrations in Grasmere!

Thank you, to you an Liz, again for the wonderful food and waiting services.  You are a great team!

We hardly knew that you and Liz were there, other than having the most excellent food delivered to the table.

All our freinds were impressed and inspired for further gatherings.  Thank you, it has been a pleasure to meet you.

Julian was very flexible when our party was reduced due to COVID, and he adjusted the menu at short notice.

The food was superb and every bit as good as a top class restaurant.

Every course was beautifully cooked and served fresh from your own kitchen. Would highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of Julian’s exquisite chef services; on three evenings, during our holiday at the Waternook on Ullswater 5-12th August. Julian was personable professional and prepared, cooked and served our family the most delicious food. We would highly recommend Julian’s services which enhanced a magical holiday.

Just a quick email to say an absolutely massive thank you to you and Liz for such a delicious meal on Wednesday evening. My mum and dad were so surprised when we’d told them, shortly before you arrived, and we had such a wonderful evening (despite the hyper children!). The food was absolutely delicious and Liz’s service wonderful, and we couldn’t believe how sparkling clean the kitchen was left. Thank you so much for making it such a special evening!
