"I have been using Warburtons Chefs consistently for nearly 15 years now. They're a very well-run family business and just knowing that they will always send me a good experienced Chef makes my life less stressful. Every time each Chef comes with a different range of specialties!"

"After working in the same restaurant for many years as a sous chef - I wanted a change, I wanted to experience different challenges and kitchens.
I have certainly achieved this working in over 50 different venues and environments ranging from child nursery’s, golf clubs, pubs, hotels to rosette quality restaurants! "

"I've always enjoyed a great working relationship with Warburton Chefs. Over the years I've completed a huge variety of short -&- long term placements as a chef in pubs, restaurants and hotels around Kent . 

I would recommend them to anyone seeking chef work, particularly if you are interested in relief and short-term positions."
