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.

Just wanted to say such a massive thank you for everything you did on Saturday, from the food to service - everything was fantastic and everyone was so complimentary of the food. My personal favourite was the gluten free black forest cake! The running of the day was so smooth and completely stress free for us (I hope not too bad for you haha). One of the guests was coeliac and she said she had never been so well catered for which is a massive compliment!
