Catering 4 Occasions

Dear Charles
Re:  Hog Roast – Saturday 16th July 2011

Firstly, my apologies for the delay in sending you this letter, but I’ve been away on holiday until now!  As promised, I’d like to write a testimonial for your website after the high praise and recommendations I received about Catering4occasions from the retirement do at Avon Tyrrell.

After the farcical organisation from the staff at Avon Tyrrell, I knew you would remain totally professional, calm and organised from the outset; overcoming obstacles right up until the last minute!

This is a true account of the comments I received from colleagues who had a fantastic night back in July which I thought you may want to add to your testimonials:

Charles, a massive ‘thank you’ to you and your staff for your absolutely outstanding hog roast given recently for the staff of Locks Heath Junior at Jim Lambert’s Retirement Do.  From the moment you arrived, the set up and organisation was dealt with both efficiently and without fuss.  Everybody commented on the delicious food served with great accompaniments, so much so, there was nothing left on the any one’s plates even though most people had seconds!  The entire service was carried out with utter professionalism from the carving, serving and clearing away at the end of the event.

Catering 4 Occasions certainly provided us with the ‘whole package’, from friendly discussions on menu choices to actually providing us with the best hog roast many had ever tasted – all at a very, very reasonable cost.  Thank you Charles – we would not hesitate in recommending you and your team.

It was a pleasure meeting you at Avon Tyrrell and our endless discussions on the phone – I certainly hope to use your services again.  Thank you.
Yours sincerely

I heard that the catering was excellent last night so a big thank you for that and I’m sorry I missed it. I hope we will be able to use you again on another occasion. I often have marketing people asking me about catering suppliers, so I suggest I pass your details on in future? Thanks again. “

” Hi Charles
Just a quick email to say thank you for a great night on Saturday. 
The food was lovely and everyone has been telling me how impressed they were with the catering! Hopefully you will get a couple of bookings from it! I have already passed your details on to one friend who’s husband is 40 in August so hopefully she will have contacted you. If you would like me to write a testimonial or anything then just shout! I was so impressed by everything that you did – it took the complete stress away from having 60 people in my house! Anyway thanks again!”


” Charles and his team catered for our Wedding a few weeks ago and I cannot recommend them enough. Nothing was too much trouble, Charles advised us on what would work well, but still allowed us to have exactly what we wanted.  All our guests commented on the excellent standard of food and service. The team worked tirelessly yet remained discreetly in the background – a very well organized outfit. The icing on the cake so to speak, was that it didn’t cost and arm and a leg. Excellent service, wonderful food and a cracking price. Thank you!”

” Dear Charles
Apologies for belated contact but we have just returned from holiday. Marcia and I would like to express our most sincere thanks for the professional service which you and Henry supplied for our Ruby wedding bash on Sept 5th. Everyone enjoyed the roast and food and agreed with us that you both did the job very well. We shall certainly use you again and will recommend you to others, which we already have done.

Many thanks again and we wish you continued success Charles. “

“Good afternoon Charles
I am pleased to say that the party was a great success, despite the miserable weather, and your food was just wonderful. Everyone found it all quite mouth-watering. I would be grateful if you could extend our thanks to your wife and daughter for their efficient, professional service. I really didn’t realise that they had packed up and gone otherwise I would have thanked them personally. 

Many thanks once again – will definitely remember your services if I have the courage to arrange another event and will definitely recommend you if I get the chance.”

Kind regards

Thank you so much for making my ’70th’ so memorable. The ‘Hog Roast’ and of course all the salads, puddings, in fact the service was superb.for which we did appreciate. Ten of us sat in the evening finishing off the Pork, Baps & puddings fantastic. I have had several people phoning me up asking for details of your business, so will email them around.

Again, thank you so much”

I would like to say a big thank you to yourself and your wife Wendy and son Henry who provided a very nice spread on my birthday. Everyone enjoyed the hog roast and trimmings and we all had a lovely day. Luckily it stayed dry too.

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for last Saturday night.  I have just about got my voice back and hope yours is OK.  Everyone thought the food and the service were wonderful.  I will be recommending you to my friends and doing my best to persuade Paul to do something similar for his ‘big one’ next year!!

Many many thanks again.”

“Hi Charles – just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for Saturday evening.  The food was very good and the hog roast was enjoyed by most of the people there.  Thank you for clearing up the cutlery, crockery and glasses so well.  Everyone had a super time and all really enjoyed themselves with no damage done.  Won’t hesitate to recommend you.”

“The day whizzed by yesterday, the weather was lovely, people were happy & relaxed & we felt that the day went pretty well. Thankyou so much for our wonderful food. Time & again we had friends commenting on the taste & quality of the food but also the professionalism of your team. They were all so focused & nothing was any trouble. We will definitely recommend you to anyone that is considering having a hog roast, especially if they want a pro company that they can leave the whole catering package to & have peace of mind that you’re in control. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, you had it all in hand. We had a very special day. I hope you enjoyed serving us as much as we appreciated your fine cuisine. Thank you on behalf of our 85 guests- friends & family. Also we were grateful for your advice on a couple of planning details. Doing so many functions you were obviously aware of how functions tend to pan out.”

Kind Regards,
Tony & Jo Bray.

“Hi Charles Just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday. We had many compliments about the catering – and the coffee machine which was appreciated by many. It all ran very smoothly and efficiently from our point of view, and I know from my own experience of running events that this indicates a great deal of preparation, planning and efficient serving on the night. So please thank your family and staff for us for all their hard work. We shall certainly recommend you to others.”

Kind regards

“Just a few lines to thank you very much for the Hog Roast you cooked & served on the 7th June 2008. The party was a great success mostly due to the food! I lost count on how many people commented on the pork being the best that they had ever tasted.

The remaining pork went home on paper plates. If anyone asked, I would recommend you without any hesitation. I hope that the rest of the year is a great success. Thank you”

“Just a note to say thank you for wonderful food, delivered just as you had said, everyone has complimented the catering, so hope you get some more bookings from this. Thank you once again”

Sheila Conroy

“Just a quick note to say thank you for making Barry’s 21st such an enjoyable day. Everyone said how lovely the food was and by the time that we cleared up at about 8 there was nothing left. Thank you once again.”

Anne Trout
Ashstead, Surrey

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the superb spread you laid on for us. The pork was absolutely spot on and had people raving about it the next day which is a great sign – normally they are moaning about the food. The queue for lunch and left overs was testament to its quality! I hope that the summer continues well for you and I shall recommend you to all!”

Best Regards
