I had another afternoon tea delivery yesterday for my Mum’s birthday. The communication was excellent from booking to delivery and were again very accommodating to all our tastes. The afternoon tea itself was absolutely delicious, all freshly made and was enjoyed very much by us all. We particularly loved the luxury cheesecake that was delivered too, it looked fantastic, tasted amazing and was a great addition to our buffet. I would highly recommend this company, thanks again.

Excellent very prompt and efficient service. The Afternoon Tea was for my daughter to share with her flat mates and they all said it was delicious and commented on the tasty bread used for the sandwiches. I was sent a message checking for allergies (which they don’t have) but great that they checked. Quantities were great too with plenty for the 4 of them. Thank you

A huge thank you to Stewart for catering our recent 40th birthday party.
His communication was great, particularly with our attendee numbers fluctuating over the weeks prior!
He went out of his way to prepare a special birthday treat for my other half of his favourite chocolates - the attention to detail was great and food quality and quantity just perfect. The pakora was particularly popular! Thanks for making our day stress free!

Ordered afternoon tea for a friends party, it was amazing there was so much food for the price you pay. Everyone was able to take food home also. Couldn't recommend enough. Easy to order and delivered to your door.
