Quality is at the heart of everything we do.

Man With A Pan by Chef Mark Evans is the first choice of many people looking for mobile catering in Surrey, as well as Surrey we cover Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex and the rest of the South-East. The standard Man With A Pan offering is a ‘fun to be part of’ buffet whereby you and your guests are served in person by the chef who cooked your meal.

However, if you’ve invited us to cook for your wedding or another more formal type of party where your guests are seated, we can gladly offer you a team of experienced and well-presented waiting staff.

The team will set up your tables, deliver meals to each guest, wait on them for drinks on arrival, during the meal and for toasts, and generally pamper you all to help make the day that extra bit special. You can count on us for all your mobile catering needs.

What our clients say about us.

Anthony Caterham

We stumbled upon the Man with a pan by chance and are so glad we did. The communication was superb throughout the process and the food on the day fantastic. We can’t thank Mark enough and he made the event. I would certainly recommend him to everyone!

Noel Fitzpatrick (supervet) birthday party

Mark, it was a great to have you on board…not only was the food delicious but your staff were all terrific, as far as I could see service went well and you personally were an absolute pleasure to work with and helped hugely with the event as a whole!!
Definitely, hope we can work with you again.

Nicholas Brown – Biggins Hill

The food was excellent and drew high praise from all of our guests, one of whom is a chef himself. What I liked most, in addition to the food, was the care and presentation taken around the whole event. For us, it ran smoothly without any noticeable effort. From initial briefing and menu discussion to the simple but smart table settings to the young serving staff and sous chefs, all of whom worked with a smile and great warmth, and then to a quick and efficient clean up after the event. Man with a pan – highly recommended!

Christine Hardy – Aldershot

I cannot praise highly enough the service received from Mark, Man with a Pan. From the first email sent and to the day of my daughter’s wedding the communication was excellent and on the day everything went to plan, from the brilliant food, organizing for the guests who had food allergies all carried out efficiently and without any fuss. The words below from my daughter to sum up how special her day was made by Mark, Man with a Pan.
Man with a Pan is pantastic!!  Food was amazing, good quality, fresh ingredients and good portion sizes.  Mark and Tania were really friendly and helpful and provided a great service from the moment they were contacted.  Man and a Pan really added to the atmosphere of the event.  I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future!  Thank you.
I cannot recommend Mark highly enough and would not hesitate to use him again.
Once again, a big thank you from all of us.

Leigh Gardner – Farnham

Mark did a wonderful job for my daughter’s wedding & I would not hesitate to recommend him & his team, we had two type’s of risotto & they were delicious!

Carole Deegan – Ascot

Thank you, Mark and co, for the lovely Paella cooked for my party.  Loved by all the guests, it made a great spectacle!  I know 3 of my friends have already enquired about you helping with their own parties, the best recommendation of all!

Liz Collins – Bramley

Thank you, both for an excellent paella on Saturday and for being so flexible under the circumstances!  We Brits know how to party, even when it’s coming down like stair rods ( that’s a Yorkshire expression!)
We’ll definitely contact you again should we need some catering.

Lisa Lambert – Ascot

Just wanted to say how much we all really enjoyed your paella on Saturday.  So many people commented on how good it was – the servings were huge and enough for seconds too which went down well with all the rugby players there!!  We finished off the leftovers yesterday and they were still delicious.  Thanks again – I will be recommending you to all my friends.

Gill Neat – Alton

Now that the dust has settled after a great party on Sunday evening, I just wanted to thank you so much for all your effort in preparing such a lovely meal. You were a great hit and hope to see you again sometime. 

Thanks once again. 

Alan Batup Basingstoke

Thanks again so much for all your efforts last night Mark, the food was superb, the service was first class & it was great to meet you.
I thought that Chris was brilliant as well in making sure that everybody had a drink and the combination of you both made it all a really great evening.
Charmaine will place a well deserved glowing recommendation on your website at some point soon.
Thanks again

Nicky Bowden Godalming

Thank YOU very much for coming along.  Wow, amazing paella, loads of fab comments from guests! The 4 of us had it for dinner Sat night with a few prawns chucked in.  Still really lovely then!  Have frozen the rest. 
Happy Christmas and New Year and we will be in touch for future parties
