These guys had such an amazing variety of food, and were able to deliver a perfect evening, despite the crazy number of food allergies on our list. They were easily contactable and offered free tastings. The servings were extremely generous and delicious, and the shared platters worked well.

Lucy N

The team arrived at our home and were so wonderful with their customer service and attention to detail. The tapas was amazing and the guests were really impressed. Even after the wedding the guests commented on the food. In particular our vegetarian and special diet guests. I would highly recommend!!!

Michelle R

We had the Gourmet carvery and the food was absolutely scrumptious! Guests were raving about the lamb as well as serving beautiful salad options instead of all that very standard fare. Their staff were a complete delight, very professional and stealth like. I was incredibly impressed!!

Liza H

WOW! I cannot reccommend these guys enough. Amazing food, excellent staff, super easy to talk to. Sean helped us organise our reception timings and was flexible in making changes. Very supportive of all dietry needs of our guests and our friends were in awe of the quality of the buffet!

Daena H

Highly Professional company. Could not fault Sean and his team. Ever so patient with our requests and helped personalise our wedding. Guests were very impressed with the food selection as were we.
