A word from some of our happy clients...

Anne & Ian Saturday 20th May 2017

Dear Caroline & Matthew - I just wanted to express my thanks for the fantastic food and service you provided for my party. So many of my guests took the time to say how much they enjoyed the food and both myself and Ian and John & Tian were hugely impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and/or hopefully using your services again at some point in the future. Apart from the great quality of the food we found you and your team all very friendly, relaxed and pleasant to deal with from booking right through to the party night itself.

Simon & Lorraine's big birthday celebration 3rd to 5th March 2017

Matthew, Caroline and their team at Owsley-Brown Catering provided my wife and me with outstanding catering and front of house services for a three day hospitality event in March 2017.

The professional and friendly service and support which we received from our initial planning meeting through to the completion of the event, far exceeded our expectations, which based upon earlier recommendations, we had already set at a high level!

From the translation of our outline thoughts into creative and imaginative themed menus, to the calm and organised preparation of copious amounts of delicious food, to the seamless and efficient service, the whole culinary experience was truly memorable.

What a fabulous team they are, and we would not hesitate to use their services again in the future. Together with our friends, we would happily recommend their services to any prospective customer(s).

Karen & Chloe’s combined 50th & 21st Birthday party Saturday 27th August 2016

VW camper Mexican Street Food

"No words can really describe how wonderful both you and Mathew made our evening, Chloe and I were totally thrilled with how the evening went and you and your team were such a big part of the whole evening.

The food was simply amazing, service amazing and what can I say about the camper van everyone just loved it. The office are still taking about the puddings."

Lucy & Olivier’s wedding Saturday 3rd September 2016

"That was a triumph! Thank you so much for the fantastic, efficient and delicious wedding catering.

Our other daughter who attends lots of weddings,said they had never eaten such good food, with such efficient and speedy service.

We were particularly impressed that all tables were served at same time and food was hot, given the large number of guests, many of whom mentioned both at the time and since, that your overseeing managerial skills were exceptional, organised and calm.

I was not really concentrating on this, but during the event, so many guests mentioned to me, your calm, organised efficiency.

Your waitresses were unfailingly polite, smiley and efficient. I was asked many times during the event for the name of the caterers.....hopefully you won't need to go to Paris!"
