We are able to offer a unique and special private chef experience that is designed to be affordable, accessible, simple to book and a genuine alternative to eating out. Our ethos is to bring the flair of the restaurant experience and mix it with the warmth of the family table; and where better to be able to achieve that than in your own home?

We endeavour to offer a customised experience for each our of clients, be it an intimate celebration dinner, a summer garden party with canapes and cocktails or simply a perfect Sunday Roast in the comfort of your own home. We pride ourselves on bringing loved ones together around a family table with beautiful food and a smile on everyone's face (and not a single pan for you to scrub!)


We want the process to be as simple as possible for our clients. You let us know a date and time, be it for Brunch, Lunch, Afternoon Tea or Dinner, tell us where you would like us to come and cook and an approximate number of guests. For the menu, we have a selection of our favourite dishes for you to choose from or we would be delighted to work on a bespoke menu for you, created around your favourite cuisine, a family favourite dish or even a single ingredient that you love.

All the food is then prepared by us in our Oxfordshire Production kitchen, using the best quality seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

On the day itself we will arrive at your door about 60 minutes before you would like the first course served. We will set your table, serve each course, clear everything away and leave your kitchen sparkling clean; everything we do is to ensure you can make the most of enjoying our wonderful food and the company of your loved ones.


Be it the first time you've had a professional chef in your kitchen or something you've enjoyed before, we want to ensure that our services are affordable; prices to hire us can start at under £30 per person.

We have honed our skills cooking in a wide variety of kitchen set ups, from a tent in the middle of a field at Glastonbury to the Crypts of Liverpool Cathedral. We can adapt to whatever cooking location you have and thrive on new and unique spaces! We can provide all the crockery and glassware needed (and even a marquee) and can advise on and provide the perfect drinks pairing for your meal, be that a full wine or beer flight, or a signature non-alcoholic cocktail for your guests to enjoy.

We hired Gravy & Custard for a TV production in Huntercombe, and they were fantastic caterers to work with! Each day, they delivered exceptional hot food. Multiple departments across the production frequently praised their cooking, including Executive Producers who are highly experienced in the food sector, and every day the food was delivered on time. Gravy & Custard were also incredibly flexible with their menu options, despite our constraints and budget limits, and were able to produce a variety of delicious meals each day. I'd highly recommend them and will definitely be working with them again!



Crumble Shack provided catering for St Catherine's College Ball, their service was friendly, professional and speedy to feed 2000 guests! Our guests loved the food and how fresh, warm and delicious it was! The choice of flavors was exceptional and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to treat their guests to something comforting and super tasty!


All the food you provided was a complete hit - really delicious, so a huge thank you! Each time I included one of your dishes on the table someone would ask who made it so Gravy & Custard became the most talked about topic over most meals and how lucky I am to live in Watlington!


Sam and Dan, otherwise known as Gravy and Custard, catered our son's surprise 40th birthday party at Moulsford Pavilion and we cannot recommend them highly enough! The food was absolutely exceptional!
From our first contacting them, to their leaving the event, we were delighted with their attention to detail and to delivering exactly what we wanted.
Family and friends had a wonderful time, sustained by Gravy and Custard's gorgeous gastronomic creations.


What can we say - The food for our wedding from Gravy & Custard was absolutely outstanding and delicious! Many of our guests couldn’t stop raving about how the pies were the best they had ever eaten! The crumble was so yummy and again our guests couldn't get over the flavours. Our particular favourite was the evening platters and the falafel! They were so yummy I asked for us to take a box home! Huge thanks from the bottom of our heart - you made our day so magical! 


What Daniel and his family team achieved on the day was out of this world. The shack set up looked amazing and we were blown away by the exceptional quality of the food and our vision was met 100%. Daniel and his family worked like Trojans and went above and beyond, even standing outside to cover up the open top wedding car during a brief hail storm.

Whenever our guests talk about our wedding they always comment on the amazing food. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we can't thank Daniel and his team enough for helping make our day absolutely perfect.


Brilliant caterers with absolutely amazing food! Sam and Dan and their team are so lovely, helpful, professional, skilled and efficient - my new husband and I highly recommend Gravy and Custard Catering for any wedding, festival or special event!


Thank you for the absolute best Christmas lunch we've ever had.  The whole experience was wonderful!  I loved the way it was packed and delivered and the cooking instructions were a Godsend.  The food was amazing, truly delicious and special; all my guests asked me to pass on their thanks for a job brilliantly done.  You will be my first port of call the next time I'm entertaining!
