Charlie and I would like to say a huge thank you for doing the catering for our wedding. the food was delicious. Several guests commented on how good they thought it was. Also, please pass on our thanks to all your staff, they did a fantastic job, they were all so friendly and helpful.


The nicest thing about the service was that we simply did not notice you were there. Barbara, Pauline and I were able to get on with speaking to our guests whilst you got on quietly and discretely with keeping them fed and watered.


Just a big thank you for your excellent catering services at mum’s funeral. Many people who attended have told me how lovely the food was. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking for catering.
