    Outstanding!

    I just can't praise Kingfisher enough. From initial enquiry to the very last minute of our wedding day they were outstanding.
    Communication was easy and simple, we always heard directly from Dan and any questions were quickly answered.
    Our wedding menu was perhaps a little different but that wasn't a problem and we got exactly what we asked for (well actually I think it was even better!).
    The tasting was a great opportunity to meet Dan, try the food and go through every detail of our day so we knew it would be in very safe hands with the team.
    The team on the day were amazing, they really made the whole day come together, the timings went slightly off (our fault!) but that wasn't a problem for them at all. Every single member of the team was impeccably polite and accommodating to every guest, nothing was too much trouble. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious, so many guests commented on the food, I wish I could eat it every day!
    A million thank yous wouldn't be enough!

    We loved being part of it and best wishes for the future.

    Amazing food and great staff

    Thanks to Laura and her team we had a smooth running wedding day and amazing food that all the guests enjoyed. Laura and her team created a welcoming atmosphere and helped out with so many little things we didn't have to worry about anything on the day. Their experience and professionalism made for smooth organisation, they went above and beyond to create a memorable day for us.

    Thank you.

    Terrible Covid policy AVOID

    Do not book with these guys! I had guests drop out over a week before my wedding due to Covid, there response was bad luck. Most companies have been understanding with Covid, but not these guys. The food was decent, but the catering manager was rude and unhelpful. They did little to help where they could. When I spoke to them about refunding the meals they did not produce, they made up stories to try and justify the costs, e.g broken glasses. I didn’t see a single glass get broken? They then said they had ordered the food already. If this was the case, when I informed them the guests had Covid they should had offered the food anyway as it was costing me around £100 a head. Also would not refund the cost of pouring drinks all day to the guests that did not come. Avoid this company at all cost. While they may have previously been a decent caterer, they seem to not have adapted well to the Covid situation in the world. Massive let down!

    Amazing wedding food

    We used Kingfisher for our wedding. We went for the BBQ option and the trio of deserts. All I can say is wow, everyone commented on how good the food was! The staff were amazing very professional. We knew as soon as we met Dan and Laura that our wedding was in safe hands and it was, the food was so important to us and Kingfisher exceeded our expectations.

    Kingfisher Event Caterers's reply:

    Thanks, Faye, for your kind review. It was a lovely day and we were very happy to be part of it. We wish you and James well.
