Company of Cooks officially formed part of CH&CO Catering Group Ltd in 2020.

A Honest Approach, A Passionate Team, Quietly Confident


Company of Cooks was formed in 1996 to run the catering services at Kenwood House on behalf of English Heritage. At the time, others said it set the standard for outdoor public space food service. Time Out awarded it a Red Star in their Annual Restaurant Guide and named it one of the top places to eat, then virtually unheard of for a visitor attraction catering operation.

The business grew organically from these origins, securing further catering contracts within The Royal Parks, RHS Garden Wisley, the Southbank Centre, Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery, among others.
