“and then there’s the Mackenzie-David way, properly, privately, personally…”

Whether we’re asked to look after an intimate house party for 10 or cater for a charity gala dinner for 1,000, we treat all our clients and their unique celebrations with the same flair and meticulous attitude, personalised to suit the surroundings and the occasion. With us in the background, quietly and diligently taking care of the details, you can relax and focus on welcoming your lucky guests.

To complement Stephen’s award-winning standard of restaurant-quality cuisine, we bring our trademark hospitality and service to match the calibre of the historic properties we work with or the style of your own chosen venue, ensuring you and your valued guests feel fully-cared for and cossetted at all times.

Flexibility and creativity are what we are known for, treating each client individually with our very personal approach and ensuring each special occasion is completely unique. In addition we love a challenge, over the years we have enjoyed a huge array of unusual events the wacky and the wonderful, and pulling out all the stops is our speciality!

If you bring your ideas and thoughts, perhaps special things you have enjoyed before, a favourite dish or a particular style or vintage look, we can bring our flair and knowledge to the party and create a fitting celebration to suit, with an emphasis on maximising enjoyment and relaxation. From parties afloat to on horseback, from the seaside to the countryside, castles and mansions to village halls and glamping sites, we can pretty much work anywhere with the barest of essentials, we’ve even served a ten course menu on a paddle-steamer without any power before now!
