Alfred Dunhill Gentleman’s Club
I have had the opportunity to have worked in some of best venues in London. Over those decades I have always had the pleasure of working with the Murphy family. Since 2014 Yes Chef arrived on the scene and this time the Murphy’s went back to basics in terms of what suits hospitality and the need for a tailor made fruit and vegetable purveyor. Yes Chef has continued to grow as a company with the special attention of having that one to one specialist feeling and a company whose motto should be “We never say no”! I look forward to working with the family for many decades to come.
I first met Danny when he started supplying me at my restaurant La Tante Claire, where I gained the coveted 3 Michelin stars.
I have always found Danny knowledgeable, enthusiastic and always at the end of the phone no matter what time I have called him.
We have gone on to become good friends and have spent many days together mushroom picking in the New Forest and Epping Forest (when it was allowed).
I wish Danny and the boys continued success with Yes Chef.
ORMER RESTAURANT, FLEMINGS HOTEL MAYFAIR
It is absolutely essential for me to have the best ingredients in my kitchens all year round. Knowing that Craig is in the market every night hand picking my produce gives me that confidence that I need to ensure we are never out of those special ingredients.The service that I receive from YesChef is second to none and would recommend if you are in need of the very best quality foods in the industry!
I have known Mr Murphy since the late eighties. He started supplying me at my first restaurant Olivios and I took Mr Murphy to my other restaurants including Zafferano’s where I got my Michelin Star.
I have always felt it’s so important to keep a good relationship with your suppliers and I have a great one with Mr Murphy. His skills and knowledge are second to none. In fact, in my own personal circle of friends, he is known as the legendary Mr Murphy!

My first recollections of Danny goes back some 35 years when we originally met in his restaurant, the Café Rouge. Danny at that time did not know a great deal about the restaurant business and asked if he could come in to our Kitchen and watch a lunch time service, from that moment I first felt his passion and obsession for our industry, even back then I found it infectious and still do to this day. His knowledge of his subjects is an inspiration and never fail to amaze me.
I have lost count of how many times he has graciously supported and worked with me on my numerous cook books and how many times he has pulled the rabbit out of the hat for me (or should I say carrot) when struggling to get an un-used or rarely used vegetable or fruit for a particular shot. With his son Paul and now Martin and Greg alongside him, Yes Chef goes from strength to strength, the love is truly instilled! In Danny and the boys and their dedicated ‘Yes Chef’ team, you always get all the support, passion and skill, you will need to help make your job easier, long may it continue.

Yes Chef are always delivering the quality and value we need on demand, this is important to my business where supply has to be reliable. Working with Yeschef is best described as having one of your own trusted and reliable employees at the market.
THE RITZ CLUB
I first met Danny and Paul Murphy when I was a chef de partie at Gary Rhodes in 1996. For the last 21 years I can’t remember a time when I had to ring up about something I wasn’t happy with. From here at The Ritz Club, to large cricket grounds and boutique hotels, both Paul and Danny have been the one supplier I never have to worry about. Quality, price and time of deliveries has always been perfect.
THE DON RESTAURANT
YesChef have been a great support to me over many years. Danny and Paul especially have always been accommodating to my needs. The service provided is first class and the produce is among the absolute best. I always have peace of mind and 100% trust in them. Wherever I go, the first call I make is always to YesChef.

Yes Chef came highly recommended to us by Pierre Koffman. From the first time we met them there was a great synergy and ever since they have continued to impress. They are proactive, reliable & have never let us down. It’s a pleasure working with them and wish all our suppliers were like them!
We have been working with YesChef since the very beginning. As an Italian restaurant, although we love Italian products, we still make good use of British and European produce and we can always rely on Paul and Danny Murphy to source the best products at a competitive price.
As a company they are very attentive, they always ensure that our needs and requests come first. We are always kept informed with what seasonal produce may have just arrived in stock. One of the biggest reasons we have such a great relationship is that even after all these years we are not taken for granted, we still feel we are treated as a prime customer, almost like family.
I would gladly recommend their Business to any other Chef or Restaurant that is seeking a professional service with a friendly and personalised touch.
They truly are the best so I’m proud to shout YES CHEF!
