Dan is the owner of Kingfisher Catering who provide catering for the majority of our corporate and private events.

Dan has been in the catering industry for 25 years! He started working as a chef in London before travelling and gaining valuable experience working in restaurants in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. He furthered his career for five years as a chef within a London blue chip corporate site before joining Kingfisher as head chef in 2005. In 2010, Dan landed a great opportunity to purchase Kingfisher, overseeing the development into the one of the region’s leading event caterers.


Dan has a fantastic team who share his desire to consistently deliver a high level of professional service coupled with fresh, seasonal and carefully designed menus - using the freshest ingredients. His marketing and events manager, Laura, has been a key part of Kingfisher for 10 years and a few of her many roles include recruiting and training front of house staff, managing weddings and events and forging relationships with new venues and other industry suppliers. Dan’s brilliant head chef, John, has been part of the team since 2013 and consistently delivers the menus to high standards with his kitchen team which includes David, Amanda, JP and Keren.


Kingfishers spring / summer menu includes ‘Roasted Rump of Lamb’ – this is Dan’s favourite dish to cook and is offered as an option at weddings and events.
