  • “We had a formal lunchtime sit down meal, with a really good varied menu. It was all great quality and good servings. Everyone commented on the food. We then had a casual chilli buffet in the evening which was also the best ever. We couldn’t have asked for more from caterers. As well as great food Peter and Lesley were lovely to deal with throughout. They were totally professional and organised, and the planning, setup and actual event was all done with a lot of attention but minimal fuss. We would unreservedly recommend, and will be using them again for any future parties.”
