  • “Delightful Catering catered for my fathers funeral and as a family we were 100%+ thrilled with what they did – I cannot recommend them highly enough. Outstanding service, food, presentation, staff, efficiency, cleanliness, quantities and taste. Time and time again, guests commented on the wonderful food, the freshness of the ingredients, the delicious taste, the lovely presentation. I would absolutely use these caterers again and would not think about going anywhere else – they were absolutely superb.”

  • “Peter was fast and responsive when my other caterers changed their mind at the last moment. He stepped right in and did the job. Everything tasted very homemade which was perfect. I would certainly use them again. A job well done!”

  • “A big thank you to Peter & Lesley Blanch for their catering at my Nan’s funeral. Delightful Catering is exactly what this couple provided with wonderful tasting homemade food, including delicious chocolate cup cakes and scones. They happily met our catering requests and everything was fresh and well presented. I would happily recommend Peter & Lesley’s services to anyone.”

  • “Thank you Delightful Catering for providing such an excellent Funeral Tea following the Thanksgiving for the life of my late husband Gerald. Everyone thought that the various items served for the tea were well presented and so very tasty! Several ladies, including myself, are W.I. members and we could not have improved upon your efforts! Gerald’s sister, Gwen, joins me in saying ‘thank you’.”

  • “Excellent response to a late booking… one of the few businesses I’ve used recently who actually answer the phone quickly and in person. Lovely people, producing and delivering good looking and very tasty homemade food… You really must try the scones! I used Delightful Catering for a funeral gathering… the team stayed on at venue regardless of having the opportunity to leave early. This couple deserve to succeed and if an occasion arose I would certainly book with them again.”
