The Dronfield eye – food review


“The dinning experience was a sheer delight, with every ingredient being perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. No-one left a single morsel to return to the kitchen throughout the whole evening”



Dr Rina George, S.Yorkshire


"What can I say! I entered into this evening not knowing what to expect......

I was absolutley blown away by every course. Each dish was delivered beautifully, it looked like a picture on a plate. But more than that was the flavour, it literally beat the gourmet resturants I have eaten at in the past.

I am a complete convert.

All I can say is, you must give The Private Chef Company a try!"


Dr A Kundu, S.Yorkshire


"Lovely to meet you Charlie. Thank you for a fantastic, fun and imaginative meal.

So delicious and beautiful to look at too.

How you manage to do all this in a household kitchen is an insperation.

See you again."

"Simply amazing."

"Charlie catered for my parents Ruby wedding anniversary. He provided a wide range of options and made some really helpful suggestions when he designed the menu.


All the guests commented on the excellent food.


Amazing presentation and fantastic flavours.


Thank you.

Charlie - Thank you so very much for an amazing night - the food was incredible. You are an absolute star. We WILL be seeing you here in Guernsey again!


Abi Hulme, Portland house, Derbyshire

Thank you for the amazing meal you cooked for Jane’s hen party at Portland house on the 1st December 2012. You were so helpful in catering a meal which met a variety of complicated dietary requirements and fit our Edwardian themed weekend and everyone really loved the food. Everything was lovely and it was especially nice not having any washing up to do afterward! Thank you so much!


Kerry Salt, Highfields, Derbyshire.


Thank you for the amazing meal you produced for Amanda Leverton’s 40th birthday weekend. Absolutely delicious. If your reading this post I’d strongly recommend you give the food a try – it’s out of this world!!!

Charlie came and produced a meal for myself, two colleagues and our partners. We were expecting some good food, but the overall experience exceeded our expectations massively. From the preparation of the dining table right through to the quality of the food and the way it was presented and served just blew us away. All this was done in a relaxed, professional way that made for a perfect evening.
If you are ever considering hiring a chef to cook for you and your friends, relatives or colleagues I would have no hesitation in recommending Charlie. I shall certainly be looking for another excuse to use him again. 

Mrs P Pedley.


Just a quickie to say many thanks to yourself and Tony for making Saturday night so memorable. Everyone had lots of positive comments to say about you both and our lovely meal. As you said - all clean plates !! We all particularly liked the caramelised apple tart. Yummy. All of it made my birthday bash complete. Thank you so much.

Just wanted to once again thank yourself and Tony again for making our stay at Portland House so special.  You truly are a brilliant chef and the food is better than a lot of fine dining experiences we get in London. Although it is company policy not to use our name for recommendations, I’m happy for you to use my abbreviated details privately if you need further testimonials for your site. Just let me know and I can send you a short paragraph.


I tried the chocolate brownie recipe yesterday. Had to make a few adjustments as I took out the nuts and melted all 12oz of chocolate so added a bit more flour and broken amaretto biscuits for flavour and texture. Bloody lovely!


Have a lovely Christmas and continued success.


Mrs L Bestwick, Chesterfield


Thank you again for another absolutely wonderful evening - the food was beautiful and everyone was totally blown away!!!!!!!!! Please thank Tony from us all too.
