Everything But The Guests was created 2 years  ago, after realising that everyday people deserved the indulgence of a private gastronomic experience in the comforts of their own home – despite their personal or family circumstances. We bring our restaurant experience exclusively to you, without any fuss, drama or clean up!

We pride ourselves on our communication with our clients regarding their planned event, whether a romantic dinner for two, family celebrations (small or large), corporate functions, cocktail parties and even private cooking classes with our award winning Chef Ian Woodcock.

The produce used and prepared for your desired function, is always personally sourced by Chef Ian from renowned local suppliers. We guarantee it will be of the highest standard and quality; our clients deserve only the best….



Having worked as a professional Chef for the past 25 years, I am extremely passionate about my trade. My career has given me experiences throughout all aspects of the industry, from local pub food to high end Michelin Star venues. I have had the pleasure of working with some brilliantly talented and well respected Chefs, who have passed on their knowledge, skills and experience, showing me the ways of the trade. I try to work always with very high quality produce. I believe that if you work with high quality ingredients, then the food speaks for itself and is not covered up with a numerous other needless flavours to compensate.
Some personal highlights of my career include cooking a meal personally for Marco Pierre White in Jersey, The Exclusive Channel Islands. I have also prepared meals for well known celebrities Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey and World Leaders including Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.
Priding myself in my professionalism and integrity, I take a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction in my ability to create simple mouth watering dishes in the kitchen and bringing them to your personal private residence.
