It is with great pleasure that I send this email to extend my thanks to you for the wonderful food and service you provided on Saturday evening at the Tudor House Retreat.

So much rests on a successful dinner party when it is celebrating an occasion such as ours, and you certainly pulled it off Andy!

Catering Testimonial for Buffet Food in Mere, Wiltshire

Hi Andy,

Jane and I wanted to let you know just how much we enjoyed our 50th Anniversary party last Friday. Everybody without exception commented on the quality of the catering and the sensitive and professional service from Louise and Sally-Anne. I have given your details to several of the guests already, and I have no doubt you will be hearing from them.

The food was excellent, and beautifully presented. The power cut came just at the right time to give us all a candle-lit main course, and back on for the dessert and tea/coffee course.

It goes without saying that you will be hearing from us again in the future.

With our kind regards,

Dear Andy & Team

We just wanted to thank you for all of your help in making our wedding day perfect! It’s fair to say that we were fairly overwhelmed at having to organise a wedding but from start to finish you exceeded all of our expectations. From day one you were incredibly helpful even in areas outside of your remit and we thank you for that! Everything on the day was flawless and we have had so many compliments on the food! We’ve been told that one of our guests recommended you to a friend who is getting married and we would 100% reinforce the recommendation! We always felt in very safe hands with you and when we had doubts about other parts of the day we felt utter confidence in you. For any future events we will be sure to get in touch!

All our thanks

Well, here we are home in Hertfordshire and I must say that our meals are not what we became accustomed to while we were enjoying your wonderful creations at the Lindens last week!

We were so pleased to have the opportunity of meeting your wife this year; what a talented and entrepreneurial couple you are. We wish you both all the very best and trust that Baby Meek arrives safe, well and on time in December. I hope that you will inform us of details on your website when the time comes.

Testimonial for Catering at Tonedale House, Somerset


Just quick note to say thank you again for such a wonderful catering service on Saturday. The food really was absolutely excellent for both the lunch and the supper in terms of presentation and taste, those lamb burgers for example received many a compliment and I was very impressed with the presentation of my pork in the evening. We were all stuffed come the end of pudding on Saturady!

Everyone felt that the level of service from both you and the two assistants was excellent and professional in addition, the perfect blend of being very attentive whilst not over-bearing. The flexibility on the time change for dinner was appreciated as well.

Thank you again therefore, it played a hugely important part of what turned out to be an absolutely excellent weekend and one I hope the stag will look back over fondly for many years to come.

All the best,

You surpassed all expectations. Thank you.

Testimonial for Funeral Tea

Hi Andy,

This is a very belated note of thanks for the wonderful catering at my father’s funeral.

From my first call to you, your approachable, can-do attitude and professionalism shone through and you were extremely patient with helping me to come to decisions.

As we discussed at the time, it’s so hard to try & work out quantities for a funeral reception, but you provided a great spread at short notice. Your lemon drizzle cake is absolute perfection, by the way, and I was pleased to be able to take a platter home with me afterwards!!

Your team on the day ensured everything was set up and ran smoothly, so thanks also to them.

I received many compliments afterwards about the quality of the food and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any family or friends.

Thanks again & kind regards,
Catherine Welsh-Smyth

Testimonial for drop off dinner party, Dorset

Dear Andy,

Thank you so much from all of us for the delicious and perfect food you prepared for us.  I wish I had recorded all the ooo’s and ahhh’s that resounded around the dining room – I think you would have blushed!

But not only was it a pleasure eating your food, but it was also a delight to meet you.  Your fame will spread far and wide through Hertfordshire and East Yorkshire.  Are you sure we can’t persuade you to move?

I have sent an email to Kate & Tom’s asking, nay insisting, that they add you to their list.   If you have a look at their website, you will see all the other big (and small) properties they mange, a lot of which fall into your “patch”………

We all wish you every success and hope we will have the pleasure of using your excellent services again.

Hello Andy,

I just want to say thank you for the wonderful meal and canapes at the weekend.

The whole family were amazed with the standard and presentation of every dish. This was even more amazing given that there were just the two of you and you were working in a kitchen you had never used before!!

We were still talking about it at dinner then next evening. Now all we need is to find an excuse to book you again….!!

New Years Eve Catering at The Lindens, Lulworth

Dear Andrew

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your colleague for the most amazing dinner last night.

It was truly superb in every way and we felt so grateful that you were able to help on one of the busiest nights of year and make our daughters celebration very easy for us and a fantastically enjoyable evening.

The food was superb and service equally so . It is such a treat hosting a party but not having to do any of the hard work!

The kitchen was like a pin when we came through and I am sure you stayed longer than you should have.

A huge thanks for all of us, the group were all talking about the quality of the food all day today! Tonight will be a real let down as I am back in kitchen!  You made a very very special evening for us which we will remember for a long time.

I hope we have the fortune of crossing paths again and I shall without doubt recommend you to the agency of The Lindens

Happy new  Year

Testimonial for drop-off dinner party service

Dear Andy

Just a note to thank you so much for the absolutely superb meal you prepared & delivered for us last Saturday.
We all agreed that we couldn’t have had a better meal if we had gone to a 5* restaurant, which with 3 small children in a holiday cottage would not really have been possible!

Everyone was very impressed with the high standard of your food and presentation and the venison loin and New York cheesecake in particular were a huge hit.
As a result of all your hard work we had a fuss free, really relaxing & memorable birthday dinner party. It was the highlight of our weekend away and only wish we lived nearer so we could use your services more regularly!

You made the whole process so easy to organise from start to finish and your prompt response to email was much appreciated.
We have left your card in the cottage for other guests to use in the future as well as passing on your website link to the keyholder who was very interested and will hopefully recommend you to others.

Many thanks again & good luck for the future,

Kind regards

Dear Andy

I can’t tell you how much we all enjoyed the dinner you produced for us last Saturday. It was really delicious and of such a high standard.  Thank you  – and your wife – so much for your time and skill in producing it. I shall remember the loin of venison for a very long time and the parma ham starter was equally delicious.

Altogether, we had a really splendid weekend at Chaffeymore Grange – everyone was saying that we must do it again!

Kind regards and good luck with your business.

We would like to thank Andy and Frankie for providing us with excellent food at our private dinner party. All attendees eat out a great deal and everybody felt that the food and service provided was of the highest standard.

None of us had experienced using an in-house caterer before and we will certainly do it again.

Good luck to you both in developing your business which we are sure will be very successful.

Afternoon Tea, Paddock House, Bradford Upon Avon

Hi Andy,

Your food was amazing, we had so many enquiries about who had provided it.  All the sandwiches plus the brownies were eaten, a small amount of lemon drizzle was left & a slightly larger amount of the coffee and walnut.  So all in all a great success!  Definitely a BIG THANK YOU to you.

I would certainly use you again and recommend you to friends.  Sadly that was probably the last party we’ll have for a while as we’re hoping to sell and then start on a big project of building a new house nearer Bath……may be a house warming party will be needed!!

Best of luck with your new venture, you certainly deserve it.

With best wishes

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much for providing such a delicious array of food on Sunday.  I know we, along with all our guests, thoroughly enjoyed it and many commented on how good it all was.  We had such a fun day and couldn’t have picked a better day for it – how lucky were we!  With yesterday being warm and dry too it meant we were able to pack everything away – the concern was what to do with a wet marquee but fortunately that didn’t turn out to be a problem!  Please pass on our thanks to your team who did an excellent job of serving and washing up, all very professional.

Wishing you all well and many thanks again for helping to make our celebration so memorable; we will be happy to recommend you to friends.

Fork Buffet, Salisbury, Wiltshire

Hi Andy

Just to let you know that everyone said how good the food was on Sunday.
Especially popular was the White Choc and almond cheesecake. The Brownies disappeared in a flash, not every one got one as most people seemed to take a portion of each thing! I never got to taste the Lemon Roulade as that went in the blink of an eye too!! Its a good job I had a bowl of strawberries and meringue nests on standby!

I did enjoy my Gluten Free tarts they were lovely.

Thank you for some lovely food.

Kind Regards

Hello Andrew,

Huge apologies for being so late in thanking you so much for the lunch on the 31st. – it was fantastic, mainly thanks to you and Frankie.

William so enjoyed it and our friends were full of praise for you and I have given your details to two people so I hope you get more work.

The food was superb and you are obviously very talented – I would love your recipe for the lemon roulade which you are probably not going to give me but I promise not to tell anyone and anyway when you are on TV as a chef which you could well be you will have to give all your recipes to the nation !!!

Please thank Frankie, she worked very hard and was so nice, you make a fantastic team. I hope our paths cross again in the future. – we have a 40th wedding anniversary coming up so you never know…

with all good wishes and kind regards
