β€œNigel and I would like to thank you very much indeed for catering for our party on Saturday We thought that the organisation was superb and the food met with much appreciation and acclaim from our guests, one of whom is a well known illustrator and she drew this interpretation of the peach desert which I thought you would like to see. The food was exceptional, nicely paced - nobody felt they were being hurried - and discreetly served. The lady who looked after the children was simply marvellous - they loved her. So thank you so much - we are so grateful. We enjoyed working with you and will certainly sing your praises to everybody and we will hope that you will feel you can come again! We love giving parties! With very best wishes Elizabeth and Nigel Wagstaff”

β€œNow life has returned to normality I just wanted to write and say a huge thank you for everything you did to make Charlotte and Will's day so special. The food was exactly what they wanted . The canapΓ©s were delicious and looked so pretty and, unlike other weddings we have been to, they seemed to reach everyone. Supper worked v well and I have to say I take everything back about having sausages!! Sunday ran like clockwork and again we were extremely pleased with both the canapΓ©s and lunch. Your staff were lovely and it made it so much easier to work with people who are professional but very friendly and easy to get on with. So many friends commented on the food and service and we definitely wouldn't have changed anything. Thank you. With very best wishes Taddy (mother of the bride)”

β€œWe just wanted to write and thank you for everything you did to make our wedding such an incredible day for us. All the food was fantastic! From the canapΓ©s right through to the cake for pudding. We had so many wonderful comments on it the following day. How you manage to produce food of that quality for so many people (especially when the speeches overran!) is amazing! The whole day seemed to go without a hitch but we know there were numerous moving parts so you must have all been working so hard. All your calm help in the run up to things was also great - we always felt we were in very safe hands. We will be shouting you name from the roof tops to anyone else looking for a caterer in the South West. We can't believe it's all over :(...! Thanks again. Cheskie and Simon”

β€œI want to thank you for your catering services at South Cary House for my Cousin’s 100th birthday lunches on 7 and 8 of this month. The food was excellent, succulent and well presented and exactly as I requested it; it triggered off many compliments. Your three staff (just two of them on the Saturday) were quietly efficient and very pleasant with it. Jo was a delight to deal with, but so too were the two chaps (whose names escape me at the moment). Paul Hannam-Clark’s celebrations were a great success, largely due to your memorable service. Thank you very much, and please pass on my thanks to Jo and the others. I enjoyed working with them all.”

β€œThe day was wonderful! I have only wonderful things to say. The food was fabulous. Tasty, different and beautifully presented. We were all still talking about it today! I wouldn't change a thing! The staff were so professional and so kind. Obviously Mike the chef did a fantastic job and I must thank him again for making such a show stopping meal for us. Jo and Will were perfect. Tended to everything we needed but without being too seen. The day ran perfectly (despite our photos pushing the schedule back). All the staff were so professional. I must mention how kind they were - Jo noticed that I had to breast feed my baby daughter and so she prepared a plate of the canapΓ©s for me which my mum brought up to the room. It was so kind and thoughtful of her. They really went the extra mile. I'm sure you know but they also left the kitchen tidier than it was to start with!”

β€œHi Caroline, I just wanted to say thank you to you and all your team for making our wedding so special! Your team were above and beyond our expectations. In particular I was so grateful to your team who moved our sweet cart which I didn't expect but was so happy about. They all took their time to congratulate us and talk to us.

β€œI just wanted to say thank you again for the fantastic food and the performance of your staff generally at our wedding. We got multiple compliments on both and I feel they were hugely well deserved - they certainly went above and beyond doing a booze run to the supermarket for us (I cannot believe we drank 3 kegs of beer!). I really couldn't praise them enough. Thank you so much.”

The team were absolutely amazing, and handled everything – including the change in schedule – so well. I honestly can’t thank you enough Chris for managing the day so seamlessly and making things so easy for us. In addition, the food was absolutely divine!

Absolute Joy

★★★★★
5 5 1
β€œBoth my wife and I work in the luxury service industry and there were a lot of hoteliers and professional private staff at our wedding. From our first meeting with Caroline and Laura, it was an absolute joy to be able to relax completely safe in the knowledge that we were in the hands of fellow professionals. The quality of the food was fantastic and the service was perfectly suited to the environment. Both the food and staff received glowing reviews from all of our guests. A true triumph!”

Food Beautifully Presented

★★★★★

β€œThey were the glue that joined the whole event together. They added the 'sparkle' to a magic day. Food, & Service were flawless. Food beautifully presented and tasted even better. Service was spot on and the staff looked and acted very professionally and knowledgeable. No stone left unturned. Attention to detail was impeccable. They made sure everyone was made to feel special and attended too. Little things go along way, like making sure my frail Granny didn't miss out on canapΓ©s.”

Just Fantastic

★★★★★

β€œCaroline Gent were just fantastic! Laura just 'got us'. We clicked, we discussed & then we just seemed to just sail through to our beautiful Wedding Day with pure ease & enjoyment. A guest who was allergic to eggs & CG' staff were concerned that she was unable to have the pudding, so went out of their way to make sure she did by bringing her a bowl of fresh strawberries. Her partner (they had driven from Northampton) said after returning home that he would happily drive back forsome more pie!”

Simply Great

★★★★★

β€œCaroline and her team were simply great. Having never organised a wedding before I didn't really know what to expect but they were so professional, smiley and smart. We received so many comments about the quality of the food, the generous size of the portions (very important to soak up alcohol) and the nice staff. Caroline was helpful with timings and her admin staff were flexible at sorting crockery, glasses and cutlery. The bar man and evening staff were great fun & I loved the extra touches”

English summer garden wedding

★★★★★

β€œCaroline and her team delivered delicious food that perfectly reflected the English summer garden wedding that we wanted. Caroline was welcoming, calm and friendly and dealt very well with other other suppliers. She was imaginative in suggesting little touches that made all the difference (such as a special pudding for the groom; a plate of canapes set aside for us after our photos etc). The food was delicious, prompt and very beautifully decorated with flowers and herbs.”

Absolutely Amazing Service

★★★★★

β€œAbsolutely amazing service offered by Caroline Gent. Lots of different dietary requirements catered for without any fuss on the day.

Beautiful Wedding Breakfast

β€œFrom the moment we booked Caroline Gent Catering for our wedding, we knew we had made the right decision. Caroline & Laura discussed menus with us & gave us great ideas to help create our wedding breakfast menu.

I felt so confident in our choice of caterer that I didn't worry about our food and drink or its service for a moment on our big day - and my confidence was whole heartedly rewarded! Everything from welcome drinks and canapΓ©s, through to after dinner cheese, was all perfect - local, tasty, generous and wonderful Full glasses and empty plates all round - what could be better than that?!”

One Of The Best Meals

★★★★★
5 5 1
β€œCouldn't have asked for better food or service. From the very first meeting we felt the team understood what we wanted. Food on the day was amazing - something everyone else has agreed with. A friend went to a wedding costing over 6 times what ours did the week prior to our wedding and said the food at ours was much better. Many people have said it is one of the best meals they've ever had, let alone wedding food! An evening guest arrived early, he was found a seat and given a dessert too!”

Handled With The Utmost Professionalism

★★★★★

β€œBeing an ex caterer myself I was very particular on what I was looking for in our wedding caterer and knew I would find it quite difficult to not be running the day myself! I honestly needn't have worried, from our first meeting it was quite obvious our wedding day was in safe hands. From assistance with menu choices and ideas on how the day should run, it was all handled with the utmost professionalism. Caroline has a great team behind her, especially Laura who ran our day,she is brilliant!!”
