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! She, like all the team,  take all of her events seriously and enjoys executing everything from a wedding in Shropshire to a conference in central London, with all the dinners, lunches and drinks parties in between!

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 on a daily basis. She runs the office and staff beautifully and the detail is what it is all about.

Cleo Rowe-Setz

Our lovely South African Cleo, a Ballymaloe alumni, is our wonderful chef who loves all cuisines and enjoys experimenting with flavours. She is brilliant at creating traditional menus also!

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!
