Wow, what a great month- superb weather allowing so many functions to take place in sunshine. A vintage themed weding at Woolhope was spectacular and great fun. We have taken many bookings for the "vintage theme wedding" in 2015 - please book early to avoid date clashes. Not long now for christmas party season to begin !- again book early to avoid disappointment.

Recent email responses from customers :

Donna: We just wanted to say thank-you so much for everything you and your team did for us last Saturday - it was perfect! We've had so many people compliment the food and pudding! You were a star and we wouldn't have managed without you all. You effectively ran our day for us as we didn't have a planner or venue - we can't thank you, your husband and the girls enough! :-) Donna xx

Lisa: The food was lovely, everyone commented on the selection and quality. It was a fantastic spread and you all worked so hard. Thank you so so much Gay.

Our latest wedding parties have seen some amazing weather when serving food to our guests, congratulations to all the couples who have used us.x

~~~~~~~~~~~~ March 2014 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Supper parties have proved very popular during the past few weeks, we can provide a hot full 3 course dinner for any week nights . We are getting wedding venues lined up for the summer months, please give as much notice as possible to ensure staff availability so your day can be planned regarding food requirements. We had a fantastic 50th Wedding anniversary recently:

Latest venue :

Menu was cottage pie , cauliflower cheese,  peas and carrots then followed by a crumble and custard- all very homely. Next week I have a Sunday lunch for a family and another one with buttered mash and a beef ale Stilton casserole followed by apple pie.(I think it is cheaper than going out and easier when you have children)

Many thanks for all your support in 2013, we had a fantastic time preparing and serving food for everyone, especially HRH The Duke of Kent:
