Good service but food failed to meet expectations
Bristol Event Catering were one of the first suppliers we booked for our wedding, after they approached us with a great offer, even though the wedding was a few hours away from Bristol. They were incredibly accommodating, including travel costs, linens, cutlery, crockery and allowing us multiple menu tweaks as the day approached. When Covid restrictions finally allowed us to attend a tasting we were really impressed and looking forward to the food being a major highlight of our wedding day.
Unfortunately, whether it was the size of the event or just an off day, the food on the day was the only disappointment of our wedding day. In quantity but particularly quality and presentation, it didn't live up to what we'd seen online or experienced in the tasting (see photos for comparison). Our guests were very polite on the day, but many have since candidly shared their honest opinion, which wasn't especially positive.
In contrast we can't fault the front-of-house staff, who (admittedly after arriving nearly an hour late) did a wonderful job of setting up the tables and were friendly and engaging throughout service.
If our wedding had been smaller and allowed more time for setup, Bristol Event Catering would probably have done a stunning job - we were under the impression that they may have bitten off more than they could chew.Sent on 30/08/2021

James and the team.
Superb from beginning to end! The ease of communication at the beginning, the flexibility offered was endless and the end result was to die for food. Also the staff were beyond professional throughout the day.Sent on 14/01/2021

Exciting, modern catering company providing incredible food
James and the rest of the Bristol Event Catering team could not have been more helpful in helping us plan our day.Sent on 14/01/2021
From the tasting session, the communication leading up to the day and the day itself, they went above and beyond to ensure everything went seamlessly. The food itself was delicious, with plenty of options for us to choose from and flexibility that enabled us to create a menu that really reflected us as a couple.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bristol Event Catering Company to others and already know of guests from our wedding who have hired them for their event!
