Client Testimonials

“Thank you so much for all you did for us at the wedding. All our friends were raving about how it was some of the best food they had ever had!
Thank you also for all your help in ordering all the wine and equipment, we couldn’t have done it without you.
Lots of the community who worked in the kitchen with you commented on how calm you were to work with, which we think is a real testament to who you are and all that you give.”
– Will & Rebecca


“We would like to thank you and your team for everything you did to make our Wedding Day truly special. We have had so many compliments about the food and lots of people have asked for your contact details.
Thank you for all the planning meetings, chats about cutlery, drinks, etc & the weather! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and it meant that we were able to relax on the day.
Thank you again Simon.”
– The New Mr & Mrs Thomas!


“We really cannot thank you enough for all you did to make the wedding such a special day.
The food was amazing, we have had so many comments about that, but it was so much more, your help at many points of the planning process, the introduction to photographer & artists, and the way you went far beyond anything that could be reasonably expected of you.
We could not have had anyone better to share our special day with!
We are singing your praises to anyone who will listen and will recommend you to all our friends & family.”
– David & Cilla


“Thank you for providing the amazing food at the wedding.
You went beyond expectations and the food was absolutely delicious, we had so many comments from guests to say how much they enjoyed the food!
Your attention to detail was amazing.
We hope you have a wonderful summer & that business is good.”
– Amber & William


“We wanted to say a big Thank You for being such an important part in making our
day so special.
From the start you have been so helpful, and such a calm presence. We always knew we were
in safe hands. On the day your food was sublime – our friends haven’t stopped complimenting
that crackling! Also, the profiteroles (and extra sauce) didn’t go down too badly with Jess either!
We hope you managed to enjoy the day as well.”
– Tim & Jess


“Thank you very much for catering for our wedding. From the beginning you have provided
outstanding customer service and have been professional, organised and always calm and reassuring.
You were the absolute lynch pin to our wedding day and we are eternally grateful.
The food was delicious – we have had so many compliments about it in thank you letters and also
on the day, with many saying its the best wedding food they have ever had. The canapes certainly were well distributed by your team and they did an excellent job serving and clearing away throughout the night. So many of my friends warned me that as the bride I was unlikely to have a chance to eat my meal – I ate the whole 3 courses as I knew how yummy it would be, and how much I had been looking forward to your carefully planned menu! Thank you for all your patience and support with us – you really have been superb and we couldn’t have done any of it without you.”
-Henrietta & James (Oct 2017)


“Thank you so so much for producing such an amazing feast for the Wedding on Saturday. We’ve had so many very complimentary remarks from our guests about the food, and it really was wonderful. There were plenty of canapes going around at the drinks reception, and your staff were all so friendly and efficient (again many people commented on this). They even took notice of a couple of pregnant guests and made sure they topped them up with elderflower regularly.
I think the best comment was from one of the little flower girls who said she had found out that she liked smoked salmon now! The beetroot marinated smoked salmon was delicious, and the local beef was cooked to perfection.
You are such a star at staying calm and cheerful throughout, and going well beyond the call of duty to sort out electrics and all sorts of problems, as well as making sure the whole event ran smoothly.
We really can’t thank you enough and do hope that you can relax a bit before the onset of all the Shooting & Christmas parties.”

– Sue (Sept 2017)

“I want to thank you for all you did for Ellie’s Wedding. The food was delicious
and it was great to leave everything to you and your staff. I am used to being on
the other side, so it was a great treat to be looked after so well. ”
– Victoria


“Simon, Just a note to thank you and your excellent staff for being at the heart of a really
special evening for Jo & I last Saturday. The food was exceptional, the service
delightful and the whole experience something I will look back on with joy for many
years to come. Our guests were equally thrilled so I’m hopeful that you may get some
additional enquiries from some of them in due course. Please send my thanks to
everyone, and of course our particular thanks to you for serving us such delicious
food and the care and thought you had so evidently put into the evening.
Thank you.”
– John

“Thank you for a delicious dinner last evening. We had huge enthusiasm from the

at the dinner table! Sorry to get up so late.
I look forward to the reckoning.”

“Thank you again for a wonderful party, and for organising Speedwell, catering equipment
and the bar etc etc. You know that we could not have done it without you, you really did
take a massive stress away from us.
Best wishes”

“Thanks for another brilliant meal on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed it! Thanks too for all
the extra things you did, we were not expecting you to do all of that too!
We are already thinking of another excuse to get together over a meal!
Thanks again.”
– David


“Thank you so very much for the most wonderful catering yesterday!! The food was
exquisite, I think the squid and the tart were my favourites, but then again also that
cheesecake was just amazing and thank god we have a tiny bit left of it in the fridge
we can attack tonight! You and Cee were so professional – you left the kitchen
cleaner than when you arrived… and everyone ate really well and lots of positive
comments flying around all day and after you left. So a huge thank you from us both
for making it all so easy, seamless and special.
Huge thanks again and all the best.”
– Fiona & James


“Thank you so so much for everything you did for our wedding. The food on the day
itself was phenomenal and so many (if not all) of our friends have commented on
how good it was – the best wedding food ever in a lot of cases and certainly so in
our opinion. We were particularly touched with the effort you put into making the
dim sum, my dad would say they were restaurant quality which is the highest praise
you can get from him, but we thought they were even better.

In addition to the food, thank you so much for all your work in the details & the

organisation, from the high chairs to the cake table, the table settings and the
napkins and in particular the clearing up afterwards and on Sunday which was above
and beyond what we expected.
We were so pleased just to have found someone who had
the same approach to
food as us (but was a better cook!).

Please pass on a huge thank you to Janet and all the waitresses. They were
brilliant and I was particularly taken by how friendly and kind they all were as
well as doing a fantastic job, and again a lot of our guests said the same.
We have been singing your praises and will continue to do so
(although I am sure
you don’t need any more work!).
Thank you again Simon and best wishes.”
– Esther & Tim


“Many thanks to you and your staff for a great event. Your cooking was delicious
and I’ll certainly look you up if I need a caterer for a nearby film.
Thanks again.”
– Mike


I think you must know how grateful I am, but at the risk of boring you I will once
again say a huge thank you and also say how privileged and lucky and proud I feel
to have had your support this Christmas – indeed, over all these years! It was, quite
simply, fantastic. I wouldn’t have contemplated all this entertaining without you!
With much love.”
– Gabriella


We want to say a big thank you for a fantastic lunch yesterday at Sheffield Park.
You really did us proud. The food was delicious – it’s hard to pick out any
particular items as everything was so good but the homemade soda bread and
focaccia were much commented on and of course the mulberry fool.. and so on
and on! The waitresses did a very good job and worked really hard.
We are receiving very appreciative comments from our guests.
Many thanks again and we look forward to the next time!”
– Mark & Priscilla


“A huge thank you for everything you did for our wedding, the food and service was just incredible from the fresh bread to the pink lamb – all perfect but also for all your help before with the set up, flowers and just being so fantastic – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you for everything!”
– Louisa & Sam (Sept 2014)
