To promptly contacting us, listening to our needs and coming up with a workable, affordable and cracking menu with a personal touch. Topped off with high quality superb cooking and an efficient, smooth tidy up.

    A wonderful, personal service

    We used Saffron caterers for our wedding at Grove House last weekend and were absolutely delighted to be in the safe hands of Kelly, Gareth and the team. We knew they were the right choice from the very first time we met them at our tasting last year and ever since they have been efficient, friendly and gone way above and beyond - nothing is too much to ask. We had the most amazing day in glorious sunshine and so many of the guests have commented on the organisation of the day, the quality of the canapes and food and the efficiency of all the waiting staff - a huge thank you to Kelly for all her hard work in coordinating the day and making the Portrait Room look so beautiful. We would recommend them to other couples looking for caterers without any reservation - you will be given a first class service from start to finish. Thank you Kelly, Gareth & the team!

    Amazing food, amazing team

    We had the pleasure of having Saffron Catering 'host' our wedding breakfast in August, and what an amazing job! From the very beginning with a tasting evening and plate adaptations, to prepping our rustic farm venue, to delivering knock-out courses in the middle of a field - the whole team were professional and fun. The food was outstanding and really made our day. We have had so many of our friends and family comment on the food, they really delivered for all dietary requirements and surpassed our (high) expectations. So lovely to work with. Thank you to Kelly and the whole team, I could not recommend them more.

    Saffron Caterers's reply:

    Hi Dani,
    Thank you so much for your kind words, we are thrilled you had such a brilliant day!
    Love from Kelly and the Saffron team xxx

    Couldn't ask for better caterers!

    Saffron Caterers were fantastic caterers to work with, and made our big day very special! We loved the tailor-made menu - and the chef was great at coming up with delicious, original vegetarian ideas that perfectly suited our tastes even when we weren't quite sure what we wanted! All our guests commented on how lovely the food was.

    They helped and guided us throughout the process, and were brilliant on the day in making sure everything ran smoothly, and we didn't have to worry about anything. Huge thanks to Kelly, Tara and Gareth!

    Dear Alastair and Lottie,
    Thank you for such a lovely review, we loved being part of your special day and are thrilled you enjoyed our food and service!

The rest of the staff were also fantastic, being very attentive and providing a great sevice all round - so many of our guests have also commented on this too as well as the very tasty wedding breakfast and evening food provided which catered to everyone's requirements! We would definitely recommend Saffron Caterers for your wedding day or another special occasion! Maria & John

    Amazing caterers and events planning

    Rebecca and I got married in July 2018 at Capel Manor College. Kelly of Saffron took us to Capel as one of her suggested venues that suited what we were looking for. Kelly expertly guided us through the wedding planning journey and gave us the best day of our lives. She organised quotes for the venue, marquees and tipis and also various options on the food. We made our decisions, tipis and BBQ food and we booked our big day. We had a taster session and Saffron’s off-site kitchens which was superb. On the day Kelly had a great team with her to set everything up and the day went like clockwork with Kelly calmly sorting everything and not needing to trouble us with anything at all. The whole way through the process she was very flexible and supportive and we couldn’t have done it without her! We could not recommend Saffron highly enough, your big event will be in expert safe hands!! Pete & Becs

    Absolutely wonderful caterers!

    Thank you to Kelly, Gareth, Jason and all the lovely team at Saffron for helping to make our son's wedding such a fantastic event.

    Kelly, thank you also for all your patience, advice, and encouragement while we were planning the wedding. The food was utterly delicious and beautifully presented, everything was so well organised, the staff were brilliant, and we felt completely relaxed knowing everything was in your care - and you looked gorgeous!

    We would be more than delighted to recommend Saffron!

    The food was delicious

    Thank you so much for everything on Saturday!
    I know its your job but you worked so hard to make the evening go smoothly.
    The food was delicious (I hope I can find an address to thank Gareth personally) and your staff were very helpful and pleasant.
    We will always be very confident in recommending Saffron Catering to others.
    Have a good (and hopefully restful!) Christmas.

    We can't thank you enough

    What can I say. You are an absolute star!

    You worked so hard to make Rachel and Liam's wedding day such a wonderful occasion and we truly appreciate everything you did. You were so friendly, supportive and reassuring in the lead up to the wedding and, on the day itself, your tireless work made it an occasion that we will all remember with nothing but joy and happiness. You worked so hard with Danielle to make sure that we had nothing to worry about on the day, and to make everything perfect, and I can't thank you enough for your help, advice, professionalism, and tireless work.
    When we first met Kelly and Gareth for the food tasting, we knew immediately that Saffron would be the right choice for Rachel and Liam's wedding; the food was amazing and we knew that the Saffron team would do a great job. Your management of the event and the catering arrangements fulfilled our expectations and more. I have been involved with a fair bit of event organisation in my professional life, and I can honestly say that I have never come across anyone who has put so much into an event as you did on Saturday. We are all so grateful to you.

    Please also pass on our thanks to the rest of the Saffron team, they were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and they dealt with the constant stream of requests from me, and from our guests, with such patience and good humour.

    We will be writing to Kelly separately about the food, which was exceptional, but I wanted to thank you personally for everything. You were wonderful and we can't thank you enough!

    Best wedding caterers!

    A huge thank you to Kelly, Gareth and the team for playing such an important role in our wedding day.

    The whole Saffron team got involved in the day. Not only was everyone super-efficient and friendly, they looked like they were enjoying the party as much as we were.

    The food was delicious- we've lost count of how many people have complimented the food. The room was set up exactly as we wanted. The bar was ran so well - no mean feat with our friends and family!

    We can't recommend Saffron Catering enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sarah & Ed xx

    Best Wedding Food You'll Eat

    Kelly and Gareth are simply the dream team! My husband and I are proper foodies so it was really key to us to serve our guests something very special - and that's exactly what we got.

    Throughout the whole experience they offered a professional and friendly service. They came round to our house to cook a trial menu before we signed with them and they completely blew the competition out of the water.

    Kelly was incredibly patient (even though I kept changing my mind). On the day she managed the entire proceedings for us and everything was seamless. The waiting staff were also extremely hard working and meticulous.

    Gareth and the team cooked a simply stunning meal. It was genuinely faultless. We had so much great feedback along the lines of 'best food I've had at a wedding ever'.

    I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend Saffron. Thanks again Kelly and Gareth for making our wedding everything we wanted it to be and more.

    Amazing from start to finish

    We would highly recommend Saffron Caterers to anyone. Their calm, efficient and friendly approach made us feel totally at ease whilst planning one of the most special and important days of our lives. Kelly was amazing and dealt with every aspect in a reassuring and professional manner. We particularly loved the personal, at-home tasting session and fantastic quality throughout. Everyone commented on how delicious Gareth's food was and how generous the portions were. Overall we were so happy they were part of our special day.

    Saffron made our wedding the success it was!

    I can honestly say that without Saffron and in particular, Kelly our wedding would not have gone so seamlessly. From the moment I met Kelly I knew we would work with them - we just clicked. Having worked in events myself I know how important it is to think of every last detail and that is exactly what they did. Kelly went above and beyond her role as catering management on the day. The food was sublime - and the way they do the tasting in the comfort of your own home is so unique. I would highly recommend Kelly and Gareth and their staff to anyone getting married.

    Exceeded Expectations

    The whole process of working with Saffron has been a joy from start to finish. The choice of menus was extensive making our selection difficult but following the food tasting session we agreed on a three course meal that turned out to be the perfect choice. Our Roast Beef was perfectly cooked and tender. The food was plentiful and served promptly and hot to all. The evening buffet exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and quantity. We have received many compliments from our guest about the food.
    Throughout the months leading up to the big day it was apparent that we were dealing with more than just a firm of caterers. Your support and advice was invaluable and the guidance you gave which came from the experience and knowledge you have from working in the industry stood us in good stead on the day. You were flexible when necessary and quickly adapted to the amended plan when rain changed the original schedule, working with me to ensure that our guests were not inconvenienced by the change of plan.
    Thank you also for your assistance in clearing the venue and holding onto some of our possessions until the following day.
    I have already passed your details on to a few enquirers and will continue to do so. I hope we can work together again in the future.
    Regards
    Terri
