Customer Feedback

Dear Shane,

Now that Suzy and I have recovered a bit from Saturday we send a huge ‘thank you’ to you and your team for your marvellous contribution to our big day. Not only was the food generous in quantity and absolutely wonderful in quality (not just our judgement but what everyone there said) you even managed to bring the weather with you- although it would have helped my nerves if the sun had arrived just a little earlier!

Your team was great too- Tom calm and organised, the two ladies competent willing and personable. I particularly like the way they all contributed to do whatever needed to be done to make the day go well, without thinking about whether it was their job or not.

The one thing I need you to do now is to tell me how you make such fabulous crackling, by far the best I have ever had- crisp but fragile and what flavour! What is the secret?

We wish you every success in your business and are more than happy to recommend you to others.

Very best wishes,

Alan:    August 2017

Morning Shane,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for excellent catering yesterday. So many people have commented on the quality of the food and you were both so patient and lovely with us all! It was all very successful and the staff and their families really enjoyed it all.

Will definitely be in touch again!

Thanks again,

Kathryn Pulham

Good Evening Shane

Myself and Hayley would like to say a huge thank you to you, and your team for yesterday.

We had a great time, and I think...judging by the number of empty bottles...everyone else did! Some sore heads around this morning.

Everyone commented on how good the wedding breakfast was. And, loved the big pan dishes.

If you want us to a testimonial to put on your website, we'd be more than happy to do one. Or, if there's anything else we can do to help promote your business, just let us know. Hayley is in the process of posting on your Facebook page.

If anyone we know is in need of a caterer....we'll be sure to give them your number!

Thanks again

Hi Shane

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing the catering for our Wedding on Saturday at Great Barrington Village Hall.

From start to finish anything we asked for was not a problem and you went out of your way to give us a amazing stress free day.

So many of our guests mentioned the food and staff and how delicious the BBQ and Pig Roast was . We have passed your details on to many of our friends and family.

It was so reassuring to arrive at the reception knowing that you had everything under control and to be met with a glass of Champagne!

Everyone keeps telling me how delicious the fish and chip canapés were and I'm gutted I did not get to try one as I was so busy talking with everyone. All the canapés looked stunning and I think some guests were ready to pounce on your staff as they walked past!

The table ,chairs and linen were just what I wanted also.

Please pass on our thanks to your amazing team of staff ,they were smiling all day and worked very hard accommodating everyone.

I didn't get a chance to thank you all personally,probably because we were a little merry by the end of the night and your free round of shots for the hardcore guests that stayed to the very end may have had something to do with this!!

We can't say thank you enough and we hope we can catch up with you in the future as guests at any future functions and this time I may get to have the fish and chip canapés!

Your gratefully

Dear Shane

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say how grateful I am for your help with my daughters christening on the 31st May. I am sorry that I barely got to see you on Sunday as I was being wanted all over the place. The fact that I was able to have full confidence in you on the day and was able to concentrate on other things is testament to what a wonderful service you provide as well as your positive "can-do" attitude.

We have had so many comments from our guests about how tasty and tender the pork was, how professional you both were as well as how effortless you made the day.

I had to talk my mother in law around to the idea of having a pig roast in her garden but she was so thrilled about your service and how friendly and helpful you were that she was over the moon with the day. Trust me that's no mean feat!

I come from a family of event-planners (my mother, brother and I ran About Taste Catering in Cornwall up until 2013) and so I appreciate how hard you work especially as your service was simply faultless.

I do hope that we will be able to use your services again in the near future.

Best Wishes

Hi Shane,

I hope you’re well.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing the catering at our wedding – we thought you were great and the food was lovely – a lot of our guests have said how good the food was. Everything seemed to flow really well and also thank you to the staff you provided on the day.

If ever we need a hog roast again or if a friend is looking – we will definitely use your company.

Thanks again Shane

Kind regards, Lucy   06/09/2015

Dear Shane,

I just wanted to say a very belated but sincere thank you for the hog roast you did for our wedding at Cogges Manor Farm on 12th July. All the guests have been talking about how delicious it was (my brother commented that it was the best of three hog roasts he had had this summer!) and your staff were so friendly and professional.

Many thanks again, Clare

Hi Shane -

Many thanks for your superb pig and excellent service – all very much appreciated. Exactly what was called for – loads of great feedback from the guests.

Best Wishes - Richard  12/07/15

Dear Shane

Thank you for doing such a brilliant job on Saturday, everyone has said how delicious the Hog Roast was, and what a brilliant service you supplied. I will be passing your details on wherever I can.

Thanks again,

Dear Shane

Thank you so much for today. Everyone was raving about the pig, and afterwards swarming into my office for more helpings. The pork was so morish and perfectly cooked. The vegetarians loved the mushrooms and the salads were fab.

Can’t thank you enough for contributing to a successful event.

If ok with you the salad dishes are being used for the night shift so I can pop them back on Monday if that ok we keep them until then.

Kind regards

Hi Shane,

Everything was amazing and the food was a real talking point at the wedding from all the guests regarding how tasty it was.

The father of the Groom was especially impressed with all the food and the service was impeccable.

Thanks you so much as it really did help make it a really great day.

Thanks Graham

Hi Shane

Thanks we had a lovely time.

A very big thank you to you and your team. Wow what a spread!!!!!! The pork roast was perfect and the side dishes of salads and potatoes complemented it so well. Desserts what to say – everyone was a treat especially your meringues. I have had such a lot of feed back from people saying how great the food was and I was so pleased that you were able to cater for vegetarians and gluten free people. This saved me a lot of worry.

Just to say thank you doesn’t seem enough, without your food it would not have been the success it was.

Thank you


Dear Shane
A huge and sincere thank you to you and all your team today. The food was wonderful and the service impeccable .. in fact nothing was too much trouble for either you or your staff. It is rare to work with people who do absolutely everything that is asked of them and more. You not only fulfilled my expectations but exceeded them.
I really do hope we can work together on some other events so please do send me through full details of your full service. Until then an enormous and very sincere thank you.

With warmest wishes.


Hi, Shane.
Last night’s Banbury Camera Club’s Social in Great Bourton Village Hall was a big success.

Hi Shane
Just a quick note to thank you and your team for a fabulous meal last Thursday, everybody was well impressed with the quality and the professional way in which it was presented and all have said that they would like you to do next years, so if you are up for it the date at the moment is the 13th December.Also may I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very successful New Year and very best wishes for your forthcoming marriage.   

Best wishes,  Allan.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make my party perfect. Everyone has returned back home to various parts of the UK and are still talking about the night - I am sure the memories will last for many years to come.

"I just wanted to email you to thank you again for the wonderful job you and your girls did at the wedding. I can't fault a single thing about the food, the service and the attention to detail. We really didn't know you were all there. I just wanted to say that you helped make our day even more special."

"As always the food and service were excellent and I thought it went very well."

I will certainly use you if i get married again!!! Don't tell Simon i said that!!  

Thank you so much Dawn.

"Thank you for a superb Hog Roast & BBQ you did at our Wedding, It was fantastic so please thank your team from us.

Hope you had an uneventful journey home on Friday and you have been able to sort out the gazebo.

Thank you for a great evening, the feedback from the staff has been fantastic, they have all said how good the food was and everyone enjoyed it. My son ate nearly all the pork I took home and all the chocolate roulade which was delicious.

Thanks again, Kind regards, Sue Shaw
