Amanda, Abbot Hall

Thank you so much for all the help you have given us this year and please pass on my thanks to all of your team and your chefs for their hard work, it is much appreciated by all here at J44.

Sam Grieve- Premier Inn J44

I would like to thank James and all the staff at AWOL for all their help in supplying a relief chef, at short notice, to help me through a recent recruitment shortage.


The service that AWOL gives is very professional – yet remaining personal – and all the chefs have been hard working, very well presented, personal and, above all, able to rise immediately to the very strenuous demands of a 2AA rosette kitchen.


Thanks, James, I couldn’t have got through it without your help!

Angela Hyde, Overwater Hall

Please could you pass on our thanks and appreciation to the two chefs who worked last weekend, the feedback has been great from both clients and our staff, they were both very helpful, obliging and accommodating.

Jenny – Eric Wright Trust Water Park

My head chef was very impressed with Jude (and he rarely says positives about anyone!)

Jane Harvey- Queens Head Hawkshead

Good result!  The two chefs here are great and the chef up at striding edge is making great food is the feedback.

Debbie Bryant- TQ Education

Up to 2 weeks ago was head baker at Rheged I have taken semi retirement,in the month previous you were sending agency chefs to help cover production I am just writing to say what a pleasure it was working with Boh of all the chefs you sent me he was by far the best one to use for baking he has a natural flare to bake, was willing to learn new skills and listened to what was asked of him. We live in a negative society today so just thought you would like to know what an asset Boh is to your team.

Richard Turner, Former Head Baker- Rheged Centre

How organised are you, we are ok at the moment.

But will keep you in mind just in case…… you never can be too confident in this game.

Thank you again your chefs did you proud.

Lesley Corr- The Strands

Thank you for your support, you may receive more panic phone calls in the future.

James- The Derby Arms

AWOL recruitment gave me the flexibility to work the hours that I wanted and their professional, efficient back office systems took the stress out of being a relief chef.
