It was perfect in every way. The service and food both brilliant. People were particularly complimentary about the venison. One person said “best meat I have ever tasted” – wow!  The choice was just right. Thanks for your steer – the creme brules were a great finish.


We had a delicious and fantastic dinner, thank you so much. Thank you so very much for everything! Have had so many compliments about the dinner, so thank you Nick.


 I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for doing the catering at Chetnole for me on Monday.  The feedback I have had has been wonderful, the family were very pleased and I have even had someone come into the office for one of your cards.


Thankyou so much for the meal you made for us – it was stunning!!


Nick put on a mouthwatering menu for hubby’s 60th birthday bash.


After initial discussion of what we would like, Nick came up with suggestions for suitable menu options and was happy to accommodate different dietary requirements and to cater for child/adult tastes in one meal. Admit to slight apprehension about someone else cooking in my kitchen, but from beginning to end, Nick took care of everything – I didn’t have to do a thing other than point him in the direction of the kitchen!


produced a delicious 3 course meal, which was beautifully presented and tasted delicious.  The main course of slow roasted lamb cooked on hay was very succulent and flavoursome. The kitchen was left spotless – and he washed up!! We can’t wait for another “occasion” to use him again!

Nick, excellent dinner, everyone was really impressed, thank you


My husband and I (not royalty!) recently had a wonderful holiday with our family in Dorset to celebrate our Daughters 40th birthday. We had a local chef, Nick Holt come in and cook for us.


We had a wonderful 4 course meal! After canapes we began the meal with Lebanese Chicken , large bite-size pieces of chicken on a bed of spicy salad. For our main course we had sea bream with spinach , baby potatoes and vegetables; beautifully presented and tasting delicate! The dessert was sticky toffee pudding with a wonderful toffee sauce. It was all absolutely delicious and all the courses complemented one another! We all cleared our plates though I had a little trouble finishing my pudding! Some had lovely local cheese with port and others coffee and chocolates (home made).


We were served by a young lady who set the table and waited on and cleared away. We were not rushed at any time, the whole evening was greatly enjoyed by all. Thanks to Nick Holt and his assistant!
