Stars see reviews...

Hello, I'm Becky! I've grown up with fantastic food, as my mum is a wonderful cook. She taught me the basics of good British cooking. Since then, I have picked up new techniques and flavours from across the world, and it is my travels which have inspired my style of cooking. I love using fresh herbs and spices in my dishes, and I would describe my food as nutritious and flavoursome; it's a passion of mine to show people that food can be interesting and satisfying, whilst still being good for you. Having said that, I adore baking and if you want to balance out my healthy food with a more calorific dessert, my puddings will not disappoint!!

I look forward to cooking for you soon and, as I enjoy nothing more than trying out new recipes, I would love to know if there are any other dishes you would like to see on my menu.

My Reviews

Absolutely delicious food. Very highly recommended! - Phil, BN1
After recently receiving a flyer we thought we'd give this a try. Great alternative to traditional take away, Restaurant quality at home. Everything arrived in separate pots, which you then dish up. Risotto (Orzotto) was very nice, and the Lamb Tagine wasn't anything I've had before and was really tasty. Felt pleasantly full without being bloated. All in all a good experience, one which I'm sure we'll use again. Thanks Becky :) - James, BN3
Delicious - Thomas, BN1
delivered perfectly on time and hot. cooked with top ingredients and a few little gratis portions of bread and salad. 100% recommended. - Patrick, BN3
The service was exemplary, the food was amazing. The portion size was generous, there was an incredible attention to detail, more food than we even ordered, the lasagne was gorgeous and they were the best brownies I have ever had! I cannot recommend this service and this chef enough. It is cheaper than many takeaways and yet it is restaurant quality food delivered to the door. Try it you will not regret it. - Christopher, BN3
This is a great idea for a bit of variety on the takeaway and so much nicer than those 'meal deals' at the supermarket. Becky was very nice and accommodating to our special requests. The dinners were lovely. The deserts were ok (treacle tart had a great flavour, but was very hard; raspberry tart was too much cream for our taste). We would recommend the service and will use it again. - Amanda, BN3
Every time we saw that lasagna was available from Becky it was already sold out so tonight we were pleased to see it still available. There was only 1 meaty one left so I had the vegetable alternative and I hate to say it but we were unimpressed. It tasted relatively bland and uninspiring, the salad and garlic bread were nice and the brownie and little extras were sweet but the main focus for us really wasn't good enough, sorry. - Christopher, BN2
The brownies and chocolate brioche pudding were absolutely heavenly. Portions could have been a little bigger, but we are greedy when the food is so nice. Everything else really lovely and delivery was extremely punctual and very friendly. Thanks! - Sally, BN3
The food was delivered with an award winning smile and slightly early too - which certainly was no bad thing. The lasagne was a substantial portion and was pretty good, I`ll be trying the meaty one next time. The salad was fresh and the balsamic dressing was delivered separately which I thought was a nice touch. Bread and butter pudding came with a wonderfully light but creamy sauce, I`ll not ruin the surprise but it had real vanilla! The brownie was a lovely surprise and was honestly the best brownie I have ever tasted (and I've tried a few!) Looking forward to the next meal already. - Steve, BN3
Becky's food is always fresh and wonderful, with generous portions and delivered with a smile. My butternut squash and goat's cheese tart and brioche bread and butter pudding were particularly delicious this time, and my boyfriend cleaned his plate of the warming Moroccan fish stew. You can never fault her brownies, either. Becky delivers – in all senses of the word! - Vicki, BN2
Great taste, fresh ingrediants used and served hot. Also had a couple of lovely surprises delivered which really made a great difference, plus thank the lord becky has a sense of humour!! - Patrick, BN3
As we are both vegetarians, it seems that getting a really flavousome alternative to our own cooking is difficult. This was proved to us as the food was quite bland and lacked any really good flavour. The cous-cous was delicately flavoured with a minimal amount of herbs, but the bean dish was very uninspiring!It was a bit dry for my taste but the vegetables were cooked to a lovely texture. It was like something I would cook up for a quick meal during the week! We wanted something a bit special as it was our wedding anniversary and we were both tired from work, so it served the function of filling us up! There was enough for two meals for 2 of us! The deserts were good especially the fruit compote. The lemon drizzle cake was a bit stodgy but tasty.The cheesecake was very good, but again the Bailey flavour was very, very subtle! As another customer pointed out the packaging is excessive even if it is recyclable.It was good value for the money and we were given an extra bit of chocolate brownie which was lovely.She had struggled to find our house so it was quite late when we got it.(Closer to 9pm than 8.30!) We would order again, but not for anything exceptional. - Meg, BN1
We've now had two fabulous dinners from Becky – fresh, tasty, substantial, reasonably priced and delivered with a sunny smile. It's particularly brilliant for us as I'm a veggie and my partner eats meat, so we both get lovely dinners with no compromises when we can't be bothered (me) or have time (him) to cook – or just when we fancy a treat. Thoroughly recommended! - Vicki, BN2
The Chickpea, chorizo and potato stew was tasty and filling, arriving piping hot with plenty of couscous. More than we could eat. Excellent value for money. - Paula, BN3
A very tasty and nutritious meal - delivered to the door on time by the chef. We will definitely use Housebites again - the free brownie was a lovely touch. Thanks. We'll spread the word. - Philly, BN3
Thank you for a wonderful supper! My husband and I ordered a three course meal from Becky last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The mackerel pate was a perfect starter, and the fish pie was really rich and creamy - it had a homecooked, comforting feel. Just what we needed after a busy week at work! The portions were very generous indeed, and we loved the way everything was presented in cute little boxes. We even got a complimentary chocolate brownie which was a lovely surprise! Will definitely be coming back to order from Becky in the near future. - Sarah, BN1
