Alex and Mat Nor have run Alexandra’s Kitchen as a husband-and-wife team since 2003. We started out in our own kitchen at home, then expanded into a unit in Midhurst, before taking over The Tea Barn at Durleighmarsh Farm in 2015.

We create many of our dishes ourselves, drawing on the combined skills and knowledge of our very different culinary backgrounds. Alex trained in classic English and French cuisine at Tante Marie, the UK’s longest-established professional cookery school, while Mat learned his art in his native Malaysia.

I just wanted to drop you a line following Ella’s tea party on Saturday afternoon.
The girls and myself had a wonderful time – your staff were amazing they could not have done more and nothing was too much trouble. It made the afternoon even more enjoyable.
We will definitely be returning.
Thank you again to your amazing staff and you.

I can’t thank you, and your team, enough for masterminding the most exquisite meal for our Annual Shoot Dinner. Your waitresses were particularly brilliant and served and cleared without any fuss.
When I returned this morning it was looking immaculate and all the empties gone!
It was a GREAT evening!
Thanks to you all.

Annual Shoot Dinner for 33

Alex ~ I would like to say a huge “thank you” to you and the girls for the wonderful day you gave us yesterday. The food was delicious, as I knew it would be, and you were certainly right when you said you were sending “two lovely girls” they were fantastic.
Thank you for all the suggestions, help and support along the way.

Alexandra cooked a lunch for us for 40 people. The food was utterly delicious and unusual, her staff were excellent and Alexandra ran the whole event with calm competence. I can recommend her extremely highly!
