What our clients really think .... 

"I just wanted to write to you personally to “thank you” for the most wonderful weekend. Christian, you and your team really were incredible, the food you prepared for us was truly delicious, from home made bread to home made chocolates, the attention to detail was so apparent, with so many wonderful flavours and tastes, every meal you prepared was excellent especially our formal dinner on Saturday which was outstanding!

I know you went the extra mile with other things too, organising wine to be returned, trips to  Waitrose on our behalf, leaving delicious snacks for my daughter and providing hot food for the boys on our continental breakfast days! None of this went unnoticed and it was greatly appreciated.

Your team worked tirelessly and were a pleasure to have around, very discreet but also very friendly and good fun. Also I have to mention how tidy everywhere was and I know that was down to your team, everything was immaculate each morning and the service in the evening was second to none!

Thank you so much again for your handwork, you certainly made our weekend one to remember and would certainly recommend you to anyone requiring private catering, Christian you really are a legend!"


"We really enjoyed the lovely evening we had at the Granary Kitchen with our friends. The meet and greet was superb, the pre-dinner natter was an opportunity to catch up with friends and the dinner was truly magnificent.  I was a little worried that it might prove too rich or too filling for me but it was spot on!  A delightful meal gauged just right not to make me feel overfull but fed well. There were lots of chances to have little tasters which tickled the palate without overfilling the tum!  Thank you for your gastronomically wonderful evening."


"Thank you Christian and Jo for serving delicious canapés and vol-au-vents for over 100 people. The food was extremely tasty and looked beautiful.  And the service was very charming and helpful.  Would always be happy to recommend you."


"Christian & Jo - thanks so much for the wonderful meal that Christian prepared for us at our house on Saturday for my 50th.  It exceeded my expectations in every way and was delicious as well as relaxed and perfect in every way.  We are still eating the marvellous cake he left us and many of our guests have written to say how fantastic the food was, especially the lamb.  Julian was an added bonus too and the lack of clearing up made all the difference - I'm not sure my kitchen has been as clean as Christian left it for a long time!"


"Thank you Christian for a wonderful meal last night. Everyone loved it and the food you cooked was absolutley delicious. For anyone looking for a really special evening, with food prepared and cooked by a fantastic chef, look up The Granary Kitchen. It's worth every penny. Christian Rivron, Thank you. xx"


"loved the selection of menus to chose from, wanted them all!  Christian took our likes and dislikes to create an outstanding menu using excellent quality local produce with exquisite presentation.  French waiter was added bonus - and no washing up! Absolutely excellent, worth every penny!"  


"I thought you did a marvelous job for us last Saturday.  Your food was delicious, imaginative and beautifully presented"


"All your dishes were delicious and beautifully presented with excellent care and attention by you Christian and your waiter.  The occasion was a great success and all my family will have much to remember and were all most appreciative of the planning and execution of your dinner, and their enjoyment was very evident."
