I found this company by doing a search and was very pleased I did. The venue we chose had no electric or water so was worried about keeping food warm. I ordered the jacket potato menu so a change from the normal sandwich buffet and it was amazing! The potatoes were still boiling home 5 hours later. All the food was delicious and I would definitely recommend this company. Thank you so much for doing our catering for our event last weekend!

Lynne was an absolute star from start to finish. Great communication from the moment they were selected. We catered a Christmas Meal for a team of 60 in 4 sittings due to the capacity of the room. Lynne came and set up very quickly. A self-sufficient team that needed very little help from us. All we did was give them a spot to set up and off they went. The food was to a very high quality and fresh for every sitting. A vegetarian option as well which was very tasty.

Lynne and her team were fabulous!! We used her catering team for a 3 course dinner on the Friday evening and then bottomless brunch on the Saturday. The food quality was great, service was amazing and the ladies were really lovely. They really went above and beyond, to say you served and pleased 34 ladies that really is an achievement- thank you so much. We’d all recommend and use you again. Thank you.
