Hire a Butler Hire a Chef Hire Event Staff

At Randolphs you can hire experienced, professional butlers, private chefs and VIP event staff for private parties, world-class sporting events, prestigious venues, and other high-profile catering and events companies.

Randolphs is renowned for its impeccable butlers, private chefs and other high-calibre service staff, including waiters and waitresses, cocktail barmen, hostesses, door and discreet security staff and cloakroom staff.

Our butlers and VIP event staff teams are immaculately presented, and have great social skills and a ready smile: guaranteed to help make an event a great success.

Randolphs has extensive experience and a deep understanding of what is meant by exceptional service – the best service possible – and we work by the mantra that nothing is impossible.

Randolphs looks after VIPs, anywhere from private parties to world-class sporting events, internationally. This includes international royal families, and well-known figures from the world of entertainment, business and politics. Wherever immaculate service is required, you can hire a Randolphs team.

Hire a Butler

Randolphs provides experienced butlers to look after VIPs on a party, short term or seasonal basis. Our event butlers provide an exceptional hospitality service at private parties and world-class sporting events, while our domestic butlers are the linchpin of a smoothly-run private household.

It is perhaps not surprising that we are best known for our immaculate butlers and butler service, as Randolphs was founded by a professional butler. Far from being an outdated relic of a bygone era, a good butler - and especially a Randolphs-trained one - is much in demand today. A top party butler can greatly enhance many different types of social occasion.

Randolphs can (and regularly does) provide any number of butlers required for a specific occasion. This could be anything from one butler to serve dinner at a private house, to 25 butlers for the week of Royal Ascot, to 50 butlers for a reception and dinner at St James's Palace.

A Randolphs butler instinctively knows what to do and how to act in every situation. Invisible but always available, they know how to meet and greet and when to disappear. They are never flustered and, as such, they are invaluable to the host of a social event. A butler takes care of the detail, leaving you free to socialise. They will serve drinks, canapés and dinner exactly when they're needed.

Butlers are recognised as something that is quintessentially British. For Randolphs, they represent the art of perfect service. A trusted butler is someone who anticipates everything and overlooks nothing, to make your occasion the best it can be.

Hire a Private Chef

A Randolphs chef is your perfect partner when it comes to planning a lunch or dinner party, a breakfast meeting, a drinks party with canapés for a large number of guests or even an informal barbecue or garden party.

Randolphs offers bespoke catering that is stylish, flexible and versatile, to suit the exact needs of the host. We have our own head chef and a team of other, exceptional chefs, some with Michelin-star experience. They can produce international cuisine of any style, from pan-Asian to classic French, all to the highest standard.

A wide variety of menus are usually based on what's in season and designed in close collaboration with you. You could choose a traditional three or four-course menu to be served to guests at the table; or perhaps a contemporary tasting menu, combining international flavours in smaller, lighter plates that can be shared.

Our chefs are highly inventive when it comes to designing and presenting canapés or bowl food for a drinks event.

When we're not creating the cool penthouse dinner in London, we often provide chefs and catering for house parties or larger gatherings held in castles or manor houses, and we're also able to do this overseas, for example if you are planning a celebration or weekend at your holiday villa.

Hire VIP Event Staff

The way to make your event run smoothly is to employ a team of exceptional service staff who know just how and when to serve drinks, canapés and dinner - smoothly, efficiently and discreetly. Hosts and guests alike will be able to relax and enjoy themselves, knowing they are in capable and professional hands.

We provide high-calibre waiters and waitresses, cocktail barmen, hostesses and cloakroom attendants, as well as door and security staff.

We handpick our event staff and train them to deliver the highest standard of service, to look immaculate and to be articulate and charming. Our teams are adaptable, attentive and proactive at taking care of hosts and guests throughout an event.

Randolphs leaves nothing to chance. From an initial enquiry onwards, we work alongside you to ensure your staffing needs are more than fulfilled. Our clients quite often combine a team of our VIP event staff with one of our senior butlers, to provide the right balance of skills and experience to deliver outstanding service at both formal and informal events. We aim to exceed your expectations and ensure your event is a resounding success.
