You will get an official thank you but I just wanted to contact you myself to give my own personal thanks for Saturday, the food and service was superb.  I received countless numbers of positive comments and praise during the event and then lots messages and calls yesterday which makes those long hours and moments of wanting to kill everyone worthwhile 😊  Thanks for all your guidance and help in the run up the event you’ve been a super star Charlotte.

The customers have been asking already what we’re going to for our 201 year anniversary! So think we might be adding an annual social event into the calendar.

Early indications are we’re over £17,000 raised for the charities which is Amazing (though I was hungover and bleary eyed when I was adding up so bet get someone else to double check it!)


PS pass on my thanks to your Dad from us too please.

Please will you pass on my heartfelt thanks to all who helped with the catering for last Saturday.  The food was outstanding – absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, with careful thought given to colour.  The pink meringue, totally unexpected on my part, was magnificent and one mother said I should have seen the look of sheer bliss on her eight-year old son’s face as he was tucking into his second one!  Many guests commented on the day on the outstanding quality of the food and they continue to do so in their e-mails and letters of thanks.

Your father was brilliant – so helpful and organized – and the rest of the catering team did a marvellous job.  I much regret I did not go and thank the latter in person when your father came and said the team were just leaving; I think I was just caught up in the moment – I apologize.  The whole team  worked so hard and so cheerfully and made my party a success.  It was lovely having no worries about the catering when I had unexpected matters to deal with and I, as well as my guests, was able to enjoy my party thoroughly.

With many, many thanks and best wishes

Dorothy and I would like to thank you, Phil, Charlotte and your team for a wonderful evening on Saturday. We knew from the first moment we met you that it would go well but I think I can say you exceeded expectations. It has been a great pleasure working with you and we are most grateful for the way in which nothing seemed to be any trouble. All our guests have remarked particularly upon the high quality and excellent meal that you provided so again thank you.

Just one small question, did any of you by any chance pick up during your clear up our ‘candle lighter’ that I lent to Charlotte  as we seemed to have mislaid it? Sorry to trouble you.

Many thanks indeed for helping to make our stay at Silverholme so special.  The food was superb and I’m so pleased Phil suggested setting up outside for lunch on Sunday.  Probably the most picturesque Sunday lunch we’ve ever eaten!

Best wishes

I meant to email you earlier in the week but it has been a bit hectic here for one reason & another.

I just wanted to let you know that we all thoroughly enjoyed the event and the venue was superb. The food was absolutely first class and we appreciated how nice & hot it was. Not always the case with catering on this scale.

Please pass on our appreciation to everyone involved and also our best wishes for a restful/relaxing Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Kind regards
