  • The sandwiches, scones and cakes all looked and tasted freshly baked and were delicious (and pretty). For what it cost per head, it exceeded expectations, then exceeded them again!

  • One of us has a Gluten intolerance and a huge effort was made to accommodate her needs - she said it tasted delicious too.

  • Everything was perfect... The venue was great, the event went really well and the attention to detail you and your team paid to our requirements was much appreciated.
