[Your Chef] Lenny is a credit to the industry.

Ben Ashworth- The Boathouse

Thank you James, Yes – so far so good, we are back to full strength at present. Many thanks for your service – much appreciated. We will certainly contact you again if we have need. Kind regards.

Paul Bonsall – The Fat Lamb Hotel

My head chef was very impressed with Jude (and he rarely says positives about anyone!) and has ask me to request for her for next week. Hope its possible to have her back?

Jane – Queens Head Hotel

Can I just say THANK YOU though to all three Chefs who have worked with us – we have had excellent reviews on the food, particularly for Boh and Dave and I am sure there work for us has improved our Trip Advisor and Laterooms rankings. We have received several commendations from both new guests and regulars, including some ‘outstandings’. We would love to have either Boh or Dave back again when we next need relief cover to cover Chef holidays. Thanks again for all your support.

Joanne Barlow – The Chetwynde Hotel

Hi James, Many thanks for your email. If you recall I said my son was a qualified chef but had other commitments, hence my inquiry with you. He’s managed to work a few days into his diary were he can support Chris in the busy period. We have also had 3 working interviews over the last few days and will make a job offer over the next day or two.

We will however contact you should we need any further support in the future as I felt your response and service was excellent.


Thanks James. You’ve saved the day again!


We have dealt with AWOL for several months now and they have offered us a first class and professional service. The chefs who have covered the work here have all been totally reliable and professional. Everything from booking the cover to the chefs performing their allotted tasks has worked 100% I have no hesitation in recommending AWOL to anyone needing chef cover.
