"Mark and I wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic meal last week.  It was truly delicious and beautifully presented and we really enjoyed every mouthful!  I'm still struggling to identify my favourite course as they were all so wonderful! It was truly a fantastic day! "

Private Dining

Imagine having a private chef and waiting staff in the comfort of your home or rental property, cooking an exquisite menu specifically tailored to your tastes.  Forget the taxis, the babysitter and the huge mark-ups on wine that are all part of a night out at a restaurant!  Sit back and relax whilst you are served some of Ben's sumptuous signature dishes.  A unique and unforgettable experience for those guests wanting private fine dining catering in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and beyond.


From 3 course meals to 10 course tasting menus we guarantee to wow your tastebuds.


How it works:

  • Call us or email Ben to discuss your requirements (all diets/allergies etc catered for)
  • We will then send you proposed bespoke menu sugggestions based on our conversation
  • Once the menu is agreed we take a deposit
  • On the day Ben and his team will arrive at your home or venue of choice 
  • Ben will talk your guests through the meal course by course 
  • As you enjoy petit fours our team slips away quietly leaving your kitchen as if no one had been there


“Ben’s attention to detail in his cooking is second to none.  We had dinner at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons a week after experiencing Ben’s ‘private dining’ for the first time.  The food at Le Manoir was bland, by comparison.” 

Matthew and Victoria Cain

"Ben's dinner party service brings haute cuisine to Cheltenham but better than that...to your dining room table. Worth every penny, he's an incredibly talent offering an incredible culinary experience (we gave him carte blanche and were amazed).  Perfect for birthday parties or special occasions, we felt no shame in getting all our friend to pay their way and we had a blast.  Compared to a night out in a mediocre London restaurant, or even a Cheltenham one, the cost was minimal. Plus there were no cab fares or baby sitting charges on top. Bonus."
