    This testimonial was entered by Claret Catering Ltd on 3 December 2018

    Thank you so much to Dawn & her team at Claret Catering, they provided a delicious Afternoon Tea for our daughters Wedding , followed by an equally delicious cold buffet in the evening. Her staff & waiters were very smart, polite, professional & did a fantastic job looking after all our guests during the afternoon & evening. I can highly recommend Claret Catering for various Wedding Menus of your choice, all budgets catered for, in fact any catering needs actually, not just Weddings. Please thank your team and again thank you Dawn - you are an absolute star! from Mr & Mrs Ballard x x

  • "A real family catering company"
    This testimonial was entered by Claret Catering Ltd on 1 December 2018

    I was given the task of running two of my best friends wedding. Right from the first moment I met Dawn, she has treated me like a member of her own family -she even gave me her personal phone number so that I could call her if I was worried about anything. Any unusual requests - not a problem for these guys, they really will make sure that you have everything you need and their support is extraordinary. Oh and of course their food is great too !
