The food was incredible...

The food was incredible (even better than the taste test and what we were expecting, and those were already high expectations!). The beef was cooked to perfection, the pavlova was perfect and I hear the canapés were delicious (I was still on a nervous high that I only had 1!).

Wonderful catering - A testimonial for catering for a wedding in Essex

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the wonderful catering that you supplied us for our daughter’s wedding breakfast and buffet lunch the following day. We were very pleased with the delicious food at the wedding and equally with the buffet on the Sunday.
I think the individual carving of the beef was very successful, everyone seemed to enjoy it, especially as the meat had a lovely flavour and had been cooked perfectly.
Many congratulations to yourself and your team.

A sizzling summer

Our first week of events in July started with the High Sheriff’s garden party. This year’s High Sheriff of Essex is the owner of Layer Marney Tower, Nick Charrington, so naturally the event was held in the gardens overlooked by the Tudor tower. The weather was perfect for a garden party and over 300 guests enjoyed, iced coffee, tea, sandwiches and cakes, in the sunshine.

The wedding breakfast was perfect...

We can't tell you how delighted we were with your service and beautiful food at our wedding. The canapes were fab, the service helpful yet unobtrusive, and the wedding breakfast was perfect. We couldn't believe you managed to cater such delicious food on a big scale, in a venue you'd never worked in before. We were so very happy.


We have been inundated with praise for the food you served. As you know the food was an extremely important factor to us and we deliberated for a long time about what exactly to serve. Your help, guidance and friendly service from the start to the finish will not be forgotten.


We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and wish you the very best.


Many, many thanks.

Wow - what an amazing service

 Wow - what an amazing service you gave us for Dan's 40th Alpine themed birthday party.

 The service right from the start was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for you and your team.   On the night I was able to relax and enjoy the party knowing that everything was in hand.

 The van worked very well at the beginning of the evening and was definitely a highlight of the party and we have some fantastic photos of friends gathered around it drinking mulled wine.

 The canapés were delicious and everyone seemed to enjoy them.  The dinner which followed in the barn was amazing and your staff were very attentive and no wine glass was left empty.

 All in all a fantastic evening and Bouquet Garni certainly played a big part in making the evening such a success.

 I wish you the best of luck for the future and thank you once again for all your help.
