Testimonials

What better way to test a caterer than by reading what others have to say about their experiences? Here are a few testimonials from satisfied customers:

August 2015

Thank you for the incredible job you did. The food and service was perfect and we really appreciate all the efforts you have made.

Jasmine King

Massive thank you for all your hard work. The day was amazing and the food was incredible, everyone commented on how nice it was and the fact that it all came out hot and very well presented, and most importantly how good it tasted! It was great to see you out there running the show, and that’s obviously why your company is so successful because of your dedication and enthusiasm and it certainly shows in what you produce and supply.

Tom Hart, TDH Services

We can’t thank you enough for all that you did to help make our wedding day so special. You really did go above and beyond the service which we were hoping for. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the food, with some even commenting that it was the nicest wedding breakfast they had ever eaten. The staff who served were all very attentive, polite and helpful. Your attention to detail was second to none, and we really can’t thank you enough for all you did to make the day run smoothly.

Louise and Steve

We would like to thank Andy and his team for the truly amazing food and service for our wedding. We wanted a Tuscan menu to follow our theme and Andy enthused with our idea coming up with the most fabulous menu. We and our guests were blown away by the attention to detail, presentation and quality of the food. We can’t recommend CBH highly enough. Thank you again to the whole team.

Kara and Andrew

Huge thank you for everything you did for us on our wedding day at Knowlton Court. We couldn’t be happier with all the wonderful food you provided and out guests are still talking about it now! The food was just perfect and the presentation was outstanding. Many thanks again for all your hard work.

Kylie and Lawrence Rose

Just a note to thank you for the service you supplied for my daughter’s wedding. The food was absolutely fabulous, the quality of the staff was brilliant, they were obviously well-trained and new exactly what and how to do their job. Thank you, you did us proud and I am very grateful. Thanks again

Mike - Father of the Bride

I just wanted to say thank you for the efforts of you and all your team, please pass on my thanks to them.

Thank you so much to you and your staff for such an amazing service on Sunday. The food was spectacular and everybody expressed how wonderful it all was.

I really can’t thank you enough and Kelly and I are delighted that we chose CBH. It goes without saying that we will highly recommend your services to others. Thanks again for everything.

Kelly and Michael - Bride and Groom

July 2014

Now the dust has settled and the happy couple are having a romantic holiday in Sorrento I just felt compelled to thank you most sincerely for all your efforts. As you know better than most, there are a few really key issues when arranging a wedding and the catering comes at the top of the list. You repeatedly told me to be confident about the quality and professionalism of your service, and you most certainly lived up to your promise. The whole day went fantastically well, but all everyone was talking about then and subsequently was the quality of the food and the high calibre of your staff. Thank you again for your significant help in making my daughter’s day so memorable and successful, not only on the day, but with your knowledgeable advice leading up to the event. Naturally, I’d be delighted to recommend your company for any such event in the future.

Jim Keleher - Father of the Bride

We all felt the evening went extremely well, and the catering side was super. The food was really lovely, the cold menu worked well and your staff were brilliant, very professional and friendly. Thank you and your staff for all your efforts. We will be in touch regarding next year once the dust has settled and the batteries are recharged!

The Wye Charity Ball

Just a quick e-mail to say a big thank you for catering for our wedding. We had many comments from our guests saying how delicious the food was. In addition how you and the team looked after all of us on the day ensuring that everything ran smoothly and service was polite and always with a smile. Hope the opening of your restaurant is going well.

Steve and Sally - Bride and Groom

Just a quick note before we go on honeymoon to say, thank you so much to you and your staff for such an amazing service on Sunday. The food was spectacular and everybody expressed how wonderful it all was. We both had an amazing day and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Your team's service was just lovely and staff were so presentable and polite. Thank you again for helping make our day so perfect.

Alison and Adam - Bride and Groom

Paul and I would like to thank you for all your help and guidance on the day of the wedding. Everyone enjoyed the menu choice and the quality was superb. All your staff were extremely polite and very professional. I am particularly grateful for your attentive care and advice during the event as my organisational skills went by the way as I drank, nibbled and chatted and without your help things would not have turned out so smoothly. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends for future venues. Our daughter says they are the best brownies she has ever had!

Jane and Paul - Bride and Groom

April 2014

I can’t thank you enough for the vital part you played in Lizzie and Stuart’s wedding celebrations. I was so grateful for your calm, experienced hands at the controls...and on the day we received nothing but compliments from all guests for the food - delicious and plentiful – and service. So please thank your staff for the excellent job they did – John wanted me to single out John the barman for special praise because he looked after his precious beer! It was a wonderful time and I would like to do it all over again – given the strength! I will recommend you highly to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much.

Carolyn Knowles

March 2014

Thanks for all your hard work on the 1st, lots of people have commented about how good the food was, and Kedra and I thought the reception was a big success. Please also thank your team, they were all great.

Andrew Winter

November 2013

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help throughtout the process. You were always on hand if I had any questions or queries. The tasting session was brilliant and the food on the day was absolutely amazing, we had many compliments for both the main wedding breakfast and the buffet. It was all so well presented and your staff were superb!

Again many thanks to you and your team for all your hard work, it made our day everything we dreamed it would be!

Victoria and Ryan - Bride and Groom

On the big day the food was everything we could have hoped for. Perfectly timed, perfectly presented and delicious. People still comment now how amazing the food was and how it wasn't your 'average wedding breakfast'. Going out for nice meals is what we love doing and that's what it felt like on our wedding day - being out for an amazing meal with 80 of our friends! Thank you so much for everything. Our day would not have been the same without you.

Hannah and James - Bride and Groom

Glyn and I and also Victoria and Toreson would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job very well done! The service you provided from start to finish was second to none which gave us so much confidence on the catering side of things. It goes without saying, we will be spreading the word! Well, well done and thank you so much for making it a perfect day for not only the bride and groom but also for ourselves and our guests.

Glyn and Valerie - Bride and Groom

July 2013

Thank you for the food and service, everyone commented on how good it was and really liked the style of service with each person on the table receiving the food at the same time. The only thing was they wanted more of the toast for the pate.

We are appearing in the autumn edition of the Kentish wedding magazine so will be naming you as the caterer if that is ok!

Sean and Stacey

I just wanted to write to thank you for providing a superb "picnic" for the Walpole 6A Leavers and their families ten days ago. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone really seemed to enjoy it. I have had some super feedback and just wanted to thank you and your waitress for working so hard on the day in quite hot and not ideal conditions (having to haul all your things up and down those steps). I hope it will be the beginning of a long relationship with you and the King's School and Walpole house. I will certainly pass your details onto the mother who represents next year's leavers. Also I think we will try to something similar for my son's house when he leaves in two years time.

I hope you continue to have a good and busy summer and once again many thanks for all your help and support. It was very much appreciated.

Kings School 6A Leavers Party

March 2013

Thank you, once again, for looking after us at the BADA Fair. Your regular team made all the difference as they know the ropes and it is so nice for us to have familiar faces around.

I know that a lot of work goes into the preparation before the BADA FAir, as well as all the work and long hours you put in at the fair. The food was delicious and I am sure you will have also had good feedback from the charity as all enjoyed the dinner. As I was always into the orange and passion fruit, I missed trying the Rum Bada, but I did enjoy the mocha pot!

Please pass my thanks on to all your team who worked so hard.

Gillian Craig, Director, BADA

We wanted to thank you very much for CBH's part in our charity gala dinner and auction at the BADA Antiques and Fine Art FAir. Lots of people mentioned how lovely and innovative the food was.

Valerie Berry - Development Officer, UCARE

Many thanks Andy for providing such excellent service under difficult circumstances (weather and terrain) for the two recent launch events at Dover Castle.

The food served was both innovative in keeping with the theme of the event, tasted great and beautifully presented. The boys and girls were very friendly yet professional and contributed to what were both very successful events.

I shall look for another reason to use CBH in the near future.

English Heritage, Launch event

June 2011

I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for helping to make the day so special. The food was truly fabulous - we've had so many compliments on it and knowing you were there at the helm made us all feel very safe!

The food on Sunday was equally delicious and I can't believe how beautiful the tent looked for a second time!! Please pass on our thanks to all the team; they were all brilliant.

Sarah and Duncan, Wedding reception

June 2011

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic food and fantastic service that you provided for us at the Beechwood Ball on Saturday. We have received so many compliments about the food and how wonderful it was.  The committee received fantastic feedback concerning the food and service and you were a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process. You kept me calm!!

As I am sure you are aware, the food can make or break a ball (as we know from past ball experiences). Your food absolutely made our ball. It was delicious, hot (where appropriate) and on time. We could not have asked for more. I would like to really thank you and all your staff for such a professional service. The attention to detail was outstanding.  I hope that you would consider doing it all over again next year!

Clive Emson, Family Celebration Marquee Launch

May 2011

We would like to thank CBH for the fantastic job you did with our Wedding reception. The food was fantastic and the staff were exceptional and could not have done more to look after our many guests.

Despite the gale force winds and zero temperatures you managed to serve a lunch of exceptional quality which added to our special day. We would not hesitate in recommending CBH to anyone and hope you continue to do well.

Johnny and Jana, Wedding reception

April 2011

Christina and I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to you and the CBH team for making our Wedding day so special. The Wedding breakfast presentation was fantastic, tasted fantastic and was served by a fantastic team who could not do enough to help yet remained professional and discreet.

Overall, superb and I will pass on the word regarding 'Kent’s best caterers'.

Jon and Christina, Wedding reception

April 2011

Jack and I would like to sincerely thank you and your team for the wonderful food you provided at our wedding as well as the friendly, professional service. We have had some amazing feedback from our guests about how yummy it all was and how appetising it all looked.

Thank you for being so relaxed and friendly in the build up and on the day of the wedding – it is a lovely feeling knowing such a big part of the wedding is in safe hands at what is a very stressful time.

Thank you so much we are incredibly grateful for all your hard work.

Alice and Jack, Wedding reception

March 2011

Please pass on my sincere thanks to the rest of your team for the wonderful food and exceptional service delivered at this year's fair. I have received many positive comments from exhibitors and for the 2nd year running no complaints from over 20,000 visitors who attended this year’s fair. It was once more a pleasure to work with CBH and I am already looking forward to 2012.

Gillian Craig, BADA antiques and fine art director

25th March 2010

"Thank you so much for all your hard work looking after the catering at the BADA Fair. You and your team did a Stirling job and catering for all of us so well: our site teams, our Exhibitors and most importantly our visitors.

Even though you have experience of the site, and our requirements, with all their peculiarities, it is still a huge undertaking with very little time to practise to get it all right. Our visitors clearly enjoyed the food and appreciated the service in the restaurant and brasserie and we were also extremely grateful for all the goodies you provided for us in the office (although our waistlines are now suffering).

Once again, thank you and Eric for two magnificent events which had all our guests marvelling at the fare – you really did look after us very well. We very much hope you will be happy to do another repeat dinner and reception next year.

I need hardly say that the fillet and salmon roulade went down very well for our 'private' weekend – thanks for that too!"

We have received many compliments on the food that evening and we know that the guests who came in support of Facing the World enjoyed the evening. In addition, some of exhibitors reported making some good sales on the evening, so, despite our initial worries, the evening looks to have been a great success."

"Thanks so much for CBH's faultless input which played the central role in making the Dallington luncheon party on 5th September truly an occasion to remember for the 104 people who attended.

Jackie and I left the site meeting before the event full of confidence that you would deliver exactly what you promised; and that first impression was more than upheld as the sheer quality of the food and on the day itself.

My heartfelt thanks to you and your team for ever-cheerful professionalism and the sheer quality of food and service you provided.

Dudley Cheal

We greatly appreciated the fact that you were willing to cover this event for us on behalf of the East Kent Hospices and your goodwill will be greatly appreciated – thank you.

We look forward to being able to recommend you to anyone who appreciates high quality catering and service and we will obviously come to you again ourselves when we are next in the process of thinking of an excuse to celebrate!

Please convey our thanks to Suzy too and thank you both once again."

I'm glad you enjoyed the evening, most of us did not want it to end but by 4, 4.30 we started to wilt.

Thanks for being such a great and charming help to me. We search for excuse to plan another..."

"Thank you so so much for all your help and the most delicious food, at our wedding. Everything was faultless-the service, the food itself, the staff (who were utterly delightful).

So many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was – it was definitely the best food of any wedding I've been to (and I did eat it, if quickly and between table flitting!!). After our amazing day and the best honeymoon, we're now back with a bump but still basking in the happiness of the day! Thank you again so so much."
