Can’t fault Dan and the team at 23 Hospitality. They have a great team of chefs and KPs and always help us even at short notice.

Keaton McClure, Executive head chef, Marriott V&A Hotel, Manchester

We needed a temporary executive head chef in a hurry and 23 hospitality supplied a superb live-in chef who managed the kitchen as if he’d been here for years. Even trained our staff and increased our GP during his 5 weeks. I would highly recommend Dan and his team at 23.

General Manager, Holiday Inn Birmingham

It goes without saying, Dan and the team are supplying high quality chefs for our busy match days and we couldn’t be happier.
