Top notch food and attentive service!

Tim and Craig went above and beyond our expectations. We had a tasting as part of our booking and it was fab to taste the food and make any changes we wanted before the big day. Our guests were super pleased with the food which was amazing. We had brilliant vegetarian options and Craig was able to cater to our lactose and milk allergy guests who were amazed with their options! Tim made sure to meet them before sitting down for the meal and make sure everything was good with them.

Tim also acted as toast master, directing guests to drinks and to pray silent for the speeches. He was brilliant and our guests loved him.

They also left the kitchen spotless which was greatly appreciated when it came to us clearing up the rest of the hall!

Thank you ever so much Tim and Craig, we strongly recommend your services!

More than just caterers!!

Can't understate how much we loved working with Citreus. We had a vision for a mainly vegetarian wedding, with some of our favourite restaurant dishes, including ones lots might not have been familiar with, e.g. Korean Bokkeumbap, as well as Mediterranean and Middle Eastern style dishes, and the team put their everything into executing it all brilliantly, making recommendations, serving it beautifully (not easy to do with some dishes - fried eggs for 100 people!) and going out of their way to make the whole thing work. They also respected our budget and were super flexible when we needed to make changes! Beyond just delivering excellent food and service, it was so refreshing to have suppliers who felt like they could be part of the family! All of our relatives loved them, they were so fun and welcoming and friendly and it made such a difference to the atmosphere. Hope to have another occasion to celebrate with them and can't recommend them enough!

10/10 - would book you again tomorrow!

Citerus were a dream to work with from start to finish. They catered for x138 people at our wedding and x40 people at a BBQ the following day. Nothing was a stress, the food was unreal and the whole team act in a calm but professional way. We've been inundated with compliments about the food and service which wasn't easy to manage when the wedding timings slipped and they were managing all of this food in a small tent at the back of the marquee! Thank you again - we're already thinking of the next event to get you involved!

Citreus Catering

Charmaine and Tibor went above and beyond their duties. They helped me with my cheese boards and pizza boxes which was not even their responsibility. Charmaine checked if I had eaten and wouldn’t leave my side until I got food. They were polite and all round amazing. The food was full of flavour, hot and the most gorgeous meat I have ever eaten. Every single person commented on how amazing the food was. Couldn’t recommend Citreus anymore. Excellent food and amazing service

Annual team BBQ

Wonderful service provided for over 70 of our team (inc families), on a very hot day - setup done well in advance of the event and great staff - would recommend 10 out of 10.

Exquisite Fine Dining

This is the second year I have trusted Craig and his team with planning and catering for Christmas Dinner but also my wifes 40th birthday party where an 8 course tasting menu was delivered. The communication beforehand is impeccable and everything is planned to your individual needs.
The events themselves then run smoothly with fantastic, first class service and extremely tasty and high quality food cooked to perfection. Thank you too Tibor. You are a highly skilled chef. I would recommend Citreus Catering to everyone.

Outstanding food! I’d re-book in a heartbeat. Couldn’t recommend enough. So much choice and great value. Food was plant based and honestly was the best I’ve ever had

Amazing wedding caterers, our favourite partner on the day

Craig, Tim and the team catered for our wedding and were the best supplier we worked with- from their excellent communication throughout to creating the most fun, creative and tasty Ottolenghi-inspired menu for our 200 guests, and a special menu for children.

They were kind enough to do an amazing tasting and were adaptable, creative and made things run so smoothly on the day. We can’t recommend them enough and have told so many people to use them for their events- we hope to use them again soon.

First class catering!

Craig, Tim & the wider Citreus team supplied our recent wedding and we couldn't fault them from start to finish. Amazing communication, flawless execution and always a smile to go with it all. Thanks for everything you did to make our day so special.

Attentive and friendly throughout

Tim and Craig catered for our wedding and were fab from the moment we met them. They were attentive, friendly and professional throughout and made the most amazing tapas sharing plates for 93 people! All from the tiny kitchen at our venue. We had loaded fries in the evening which they did perfectly and so many of our guests complimented them. They even cut up and served our wedding cake of cheese for everyone. Their waiting staff were brilliant too. Super friendly and efficient and just generally a great bunch of people.
If you are wondering who to consider for a big event, look no further, they will look after you, we couldn't recommend them more!

Great service over two nights at a silver wedding weekend party

Craig was easy to deal with by phone and text, he understood the style of food we wanted and the different service types on the two nights. One hot tray buffet, and one formal dinner for 50 guests on both evenings. There was no problem with me being coeliac, and in fact all the food they produced for the weekend was gluten-free, and no one even realised! It was delicious, good looking and generously portioned. Waiting staff were polite and well turned out, all the cleaning up was done, and the entire thing was handled in a friendly manner. All our guests finished their plates, and commented how the good the meals were. They team also coped with us having a magician entertaining before and during service at the table without any difficulty. Super job, well done.

Outstanding from the first enquiry to the day!

Communication was always excellent, whenever I had a question it was answered within 24hrs. The tasting session we had was an experience in itself… we felt like a million dollars to be served Prosecco and the best food we ever had, all cooked in front of us. It felt so special. Then on our big day bar marrying my husband ☺️… these guys were without a doubt one of our biggest highlights to the day. The food was UNREAL!!!! And all of our guest have said how fantastic the food was and that it’s some of the best food they have ever had! So thank you Craig, you are very talented. Now Tim (front of house)what a guy! His front of house skills were out of this world! He made me feel so calm and relaxed, so i can never thank him enough and the rest of the team… fantastic bunch of people. They really did give everyone the 5star service. So thank you once again. Also 100% any future events we have, we will be contacting you guys as you are so FANTASTIC and so reasonably priced! So glad we found you.
