I booked 'Man with a Pan' for my 50th Birthday party. I could not fault them from start to finish and the food itself was absolutely delicious! They set up in the perfect spot in the garden and it all looked very professional. They were very easy going, chatty and friendly. Not only did they serve the canapes but were also happy to serve the drinks and keep everyone nicely topped up. The food itself was ready at exactly the right time and served piping hot from the pans. The choices I gave the guests were paella and boeuf bourguignon. All the guests commented on how delicious the food was and seconds was positively encouraged! They cleared up all the mess and left no trace at all. Many asked for their cards and said they would certainly use them again or recommend to other friends.

"Mark and Simon from Man with a Pan were outstanding providing a delicious Paella menu for 60 guests at our birthday celebrations. They arrived in perfect time to set up , cook and serve their fantastic food. The ingredients were of a very high standard and exceeded our expectations with very generous servings for everyone. The service was so good that I did not have to worry about anything and was just able to enjoy myself with our guests.
I also loved the fact that they used plastic free plates and forks.
The food was so delicious and all our friends said it was the best Paella they had tasted with gorgeous salads to go with it.
I would not hesitate to recommend Man with a Pan to any one and would certainly use them again so well done Mark and Simon you were amazing and very hard working."

"From the beginning to the end,Mark was fabulous. He listened, advised and absolutely came through. We kept upping the numbers but that did not phase him. We chose Paella’, salad and bread. They were so delicious. Our guests went for seconds and thirds. From arrival Mark and Simon rigged their equipment without any fuss. They let us know when the food was ready - at the agreed time, They were so friendly to our guests. They also went around and tidied plates when people had finished.
I would love to use them again if we had another event. Several guests took their card and would definitely recommend them. Thank you so much, Mark."
