Sophie Douglas-Bate

Having started cooking professionally from her Battersea flat in 1984, it is Sophie who runs the show. If she’s not in the kitchen, magicking up a new delicious salad, you’ll find her chasing her son around Battersea Park!

Connie Hawker

As chef, Connie works closely with Sophie to make sure every need is met  in the food department. Connie is always trying to improve her coffee frothing technique in the café and can often be seen making her (nearly) famous chocolate brownies!


Anna-Cristina Haynes

With not only an undergraduate in events but a masters too, Anna knows her stuff. As Sophie’s PA and Event Planner she jumps in and saves the day on a daily basis – whether it’s donning her chefs outfit to make a breakfast or organising last minute details for a party of 250 guests.


Annabel Redmayne

Despite being part time, Annie is a valued member of our team.  Keeping our numbers in check is her forté but she also gives the best dating advice in Battersea!
