Very happy with the service and presentation aswell as the quality of the afternoon tea. This was a surprise for my grandparents 65th wedding anniversary and they were delighted with the variety of treats, it was just enough for them. It was delivered at the time agreed and was perfect for them. The only thing I could fault would be communication, perhaps a phone call would be nice prior to the event as reassurance and confirmation of details, time etc but that’s just my thoughts.

We had a lovely meal cooked and served on Saturday 5 October. Beef Wellington cooked to perfection and chicken beautifully moist. Kitchen left very tidy and all washing up done .
Meal Prepared and delivered on Friday was fine also. Unfortunately surplus food was binned until we asked them to put it in the fridge for later use

Excellent presentation, good quality food. However for one vegan although marked had bits of meat meat in one dish and one chocolate desert was totally inedible. Was informed without complaining but despite promising to check it out did not come back to us. Disappointing after such a good start!
