Events Testimonials

“Good afternoon Team,

We wanted to reach out to you to say a massive thank you for your help and support with our event. Our team shared feedback with us that they loved the food and that all your team were amazing – I think we were close to death by food as they mentioned! We saw this for ourselves on the day, both Nita and I have worked with many caterers for various events in the past and we can say that you and your team have done an incredible job and went above and beyond, so thank you for this.

We appreciate how flexible you were with the changes to our timings and all our requirements too! Thanks again for your amazing food, service and support.”

Thank you so much for making our Golden Wedding celebration such a success.
The food was really great, and in generous quantities. Phil and his two helpers were so professional.
The centre piece of a cabbage stuck with cheese and pineapple was a triumph!!
It really couldn’t have been better.
Thank you again
Best wishes,

70’s themed wedding anniversary part at home – 22nd September 2018

~ Rhoda & Tony Graham

Thanks so much for a brilliant party on Saturday. The food was amazing! So many people commented to us, both how great the food was, and how great all the caterers were, and what nice people. You really run a great show – it’s so nice to know things are being ‘managed’, and there is nothing to think about when involved with talking to guests. As far as we were concerned everything seemed to go very smoothly, all thanks to you and your staff. And the delicious food certainly helped things along. We would have been happy for you to use our kitchen, but were very impressed at your professional set-up – obviously you are geared up to work anywhere…

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.

~ Kendal Auction Mart Charity Ball – 10th Feb 2018

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
