Private Events

I cater for private events which range from 5-10 course dinner parties in your own home to weddings, parties and gourmet BBQ’s.

I work with you to create a bespoke menu utilising your favourite ingredients to ensure that the event is everything that you want it to be for you and your guests.

If you would like to discuss your next event or celebration do get in touch!

Seasonal Supper Clubs

Our hugely popular seasonal supper clubs treat 14 people to a delicious 4 course meal, plus some treats, at our barn in Ketton, Rutland. These are exciting and innovative evenings where I cook with the finest local and seasonal ingredients to create beautiful dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. My Supper Clubs are BYO giving you the choice to make it a really good value evening or treat yourself to that special bottle you have been saving!

Our barn is also available for private hire.

I create completely bespoke wedding menus for your special day. No more having to choose from pre-set menus, I work with you to create your perfect wedding menu ensuring that the food on your special day lives up to the occasion and gives you and your guests a beautiful meal that perfectly fits your wedding style.


Cookery Workshops

I host regular cooking workshops at the beautiful Bakehouse kitchens in Stamford. These are great fun, intimate classes where you will learn some new skills in the kitchen and enjoy a great meal that you have cooked yourself at the end! I host both private classes for groups of friends or small businesses, as well as ticketed events.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss private classes or purchase gift vouchers.

What our clients say

Having eaten in many restaurants and pubs locally I can honestly say that this was another level of cooking... a pure joy and of a quality that I would expect from a top restaurant. Simon is clearly destined to go far in this profession so get booked on to one of his next evenings if you can, you will not be disappointed!
— Gabi
The ambience of your beautiful dining room is wonderful, generating as it did that magical “bubble” of conversation and laughter between hitherto total strangers – now that is a particularly magic skill, one which is possessed by the few. As for the food it was simply wonderful.
— Bob
We booked Simon for a very special 80th birthday party for my father and we couldn’t have asked for more. It was a memorable evening and Simon being there was a really important factor. Wouldn’t hesitate to work with Simon again.
— Craig
The evening was both fascinating and great fun... we were thrilled to welcome Simon into our home to cook for us and we’ll definitely be asking him back. Thank you Simon for cooking and entertaining us. We had a wonderful evening.
— Gaynor
Simply, quite superb in all the factors that go towards a truly great meal.
Good company, relaxed lively atmosphere, great wine pairing, good staff and most of all fantastic food presented by Simon on top form, informative and modest in his ability to create a classic yet different menu, smoked meringue wow. When Chef gets a round of applause after every course says it all.
— Jerry
Simon chef’d for our 70th birthday celebration. The whole process, from an initial meeting with him to the food he cooked, was utterly delightful. He created an atmosphere which added immeasurably to our enjoyment, explaining the ingredients and cooking techniques used to prepare and present such delightful food, thank you for a memorable experience.
— David & Sue
We had a wonderful evening enjoying Simon’s beautifully crafted dishes on Friday. His menu was full of surprises, like the crispy chicken skin snack and miso caramel fudge. We were challenged, treated and cosseted by a meal full of new and interesting flavours and combinations as well as soothed by imaginative interpretations of familiar favourites. Thoroughly delighted by the whole evening. Cannot recommend this lovely, hard working and talented man enough.
