    Top class wedding catering

    Katie and her team served us a delicious wedding breakfast (Pie & Mash main course) during our Bristol-based wedding in summer 2021. We originally booked our wedding for 2020, but had to rearrange due to the pandemic; Mesa's communications were excellent, and they kept us up-to-date with various changes, and they were flexible to our constantly-changing requirements. The serving team on-the-day were incredibly attentive and surpassed all of our expectations, allowing us to enjoy the day without any stress. Highly recommended :)
    Many thanks, Steve & Alice

    Mesa Catering's reply:

    Outstanding service and delicious pies

    Katie and her team provided an outstanding service from beginning to end at our wedding in the woods. All our guests, children and adults alike, without exception, loved the food and everyone was left truly satiated. Not only quality in taste but quality in service too. The team were so organised, knowledgeable, helpful and fun, and great to have around on our special day. Very good value for money and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.

    We cannot thank the Pieminister team enough! From our initial enquires, to the goodbyes on our wedding day the whole team were fabulous, helpful, thoughtful and produced THE most delicious menu for our wedding day.

    We had always dreamt of a festival wedding where Pies were certainly top of the list as our menu to accompany our relaxed day. There was no question too big or too small for the team to answer and they accommodated all of our guests needs perfectly. On the day the service was smooth and enjoyable, the team were helpful, friendly and went above and beyond. The team provided us with canapes, a 2-course dinner and service of our reception and table drinks.

    We had so many positive comments from our friends and family on the pies, we were so pleased they were enjoyed by all!

    We would not hesitate in recommending Pieminister to any friends or family who are looking for a 5star service for their wedding.

    We can't recommend Pieminister enough as a wedding caterer. Katie, Hannah and the team took so much stress out of the day for us both in the early planning stages and on the day of the wedding itself. The event staff were incredibly self-sufficient and ensured everyone's needs were met all day while allowing people to chat. They did lots of extra jobs for us not related to the catering package that we had asked for - offering to cut up our wedding cake, serve reception drinks and break down tables for dancing. We had so many compliments on the delicious food and how nice it was to feel full at a wedding!
    Thank you all so so much for being so great.

    Jules and Sam, September 2014

    We got married on Saturday 13th September 2014 and we had a Pieminister Wedding! Our reception was in a marquee in a private garden and Pieminister took care of the hospitality; they helped to make our wedding day amazing, incredible, spectacular and perfect! We wanted a relaxed vibe during our reception and having Pieminister let us achieve that.

    We cannot thank Pieminister enough as all our guests had fabulous food. We had a selection of gorgeous canapés when our guests arrived from the church to the reception, these were perfect nibbles whilst the photos were being taken. We chose three pies for the main; Chicken of Aragon Pie, Matador Pie and Wild Mushroom and Asparagus Pie, and all specialist dietary requirements were catered for, and we had quite a few. The pies looked so inviting and delicious, and of course, tasted incredible. The best thing about having pie and mash at a wedding is that it really fills you up, and our guests agreed. The dessert was also gorgeous, lots of yummy offerings. Pieminister organised a magnificent wedding cheese cake for us, and it perfectly complemented the evening buffet.

    The food really speaks for itself, but we also want to say how impressed we were with the overall organisation and support that we had.

    Katie led the Pieminister Team for our wedding and she was amazing; she couldn’t do enough for us leading up to the wedding day and on the day itself.

    Do not hesitate to book Pieminister for your nuptials with Pieminister, we've had nothing but rave reviews from our guests! Thank you, thank you, thank you! x

    Firstly thank you so so much. We were incredibly impressed with how you and the team handled the whole day; we had so many comments on how excellent the food and service was and just want to pass that feedback on to you. The level of service exceeded all our expectations and we are so grateful for that; plus the food tasted amazing! Right from the beginning Pieminister were so easy to deal with and we felt like were able to ask any questions we had really easily. We would gladly recommend your services as we just felt so well looked after.

    We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for everything you did for us at our wedding on Saturday. You were simply brilliant.

    All the guests commented on how good the food and the service was. We were also so grateful to you for sorting out the food service area so well- putting up sheets etc. It worked really well.

    You have been flexible and so easy to work with right from the start which is such a weight off our minds with everything else we had to sort. We're only sorry that we didn't get to speak to you very much! If we're in Bristol soon, we'll pop in for sure.

    Please let us know if there are any review/recommendation sites that you would like us to give you a glowing reference on and we'll be happy to do so.

    Thanks so much again,

    Andy and Rachel, 2015

    Wow! Katie – we don’t really know where to start but you truly did make our dreams come true, and simply made our wedding day perfect!! From the first planning meeting to the end of the night you and your amazing team were superstars. You filled us with confidence from the start with your obvious experience and genuine excitement for our wedding. We simply didn’t worry about anything on the day, as it was clear to see the whole team had everything in hand and worked fantastically together in a relaxed but organised way. The pies were yummy (as always) and people are still going on about the sausage rolls now. The way you catered for everyone’s needs was remarkable, still serving tasty different dishes for those that sadly can’t eat pastry. It was definitely Good Times with Pies!

    A MASSIVE thank you to you and your whole team for the mammoth amounts of work you did, and for making our special day the best day ever!

    Lisa and Stephen, August 2016

    Stephen and I have for a long time been Pieminister fans and before we were even engaged we knew that we wanted Pieminister to cater for us when we one day got married. We love their pies, always have a stock of them in the freezer and wanted to incorporate this personal touch into the most special day of our lives so far. Plus we wanted to provide a delicious, hearty and slightly different Wedding Breakfast for our guests.

    This was the starting point of our wedding planning! The next was to find a venue that allowed us to use our own choice of caterer and hence we discovered the beautiful but rather remote and inaccessible (in more ways than one) Polhawn Fort in Cornwall.

    The Pieminister team were incredibly professional, efficient and friendly from day one. From Faye, who helped with the booking process, to Katie who thought of everything in the (at times difficult) planning process and to Ian and the Pieminister team who worked incredibly hard to ensure that our wedding day went smoothly and was everything that we dreamed of, even though the weather tried to scupper us with gale force winds in the middle of August! The team thought of everything during the planning process and worked tirelessly behind the scenes on the day even adding in a couple of surprises for us, which we had not expected. We could not fault them and both our guests and

    Stephen and I loved the Pieminister experience.

    We would highly recommend Pieminister to anyone and everyone as we can guarantee you will not regret it!

    Maylin and Oliver, September 2016

    Pies are such an unusual and perfect way of showing our love to our friends and family, like a hug on a plate. The Pieminister team has been brilliant from the outset; of note both Katie and Ian have been absolute stars, invaluable help before and during the wedding and constant sources of advice and information. The team has combined professionalism with a great friendliness, which we have really appreciated whilst organizing the biggest party of our lives. The canapés and pies were perfect, the flexible range of food options meant we could cater for all tastes and there were a lot of empty plates and happy faces by the end of the evening. As the bride, I really appreciated the care the waiting staff took to make sure my glass was always filled, and I managed to taste the canapés whilst I was dashing about talking to all the guests!

    We always have loved your pies, and now every time we eat one there will be an extra reason to smile.

    Thank you again from both of us, and all of our happy, well-fed guests.

    Lucy and Dan, July 2016

    From Faye’s very helpful and timely correspondence through to the amazing organizing and delivery by Katie and her team, our catering experience with Pieminister was thankfully completely stress-free! Pieminister were so accommodating and it was great fun to have pies and all the glorious extras at our wedding!

    As usual, the pies were simply delicious and there were lots of lovely compliments from ours guests about the lemon meringue ice cream pie dessert.

    Pieminister were so friendly and professional and went above and beyond the duties of catering manager (my Mum even caught the Katie helping to keep the toilets clean & tidy!)

    Thank you so much for all your help on the day – it really meant a lot to both of us. We are and will remain dedicated Pieminister addicts for life!

    From the outset, we knew we had chosen a great company! These excellent tasting pies gave our wedding the fun, relaxed feeling we wanted. Who doesn’t love a good pie?! The company itself were friendly and very professional. Along the way, they kept us informed and were extremely organized. They were also particularly great catering for a range of food allergies and requirements and were fantastic with last minute guest changes. Not only that, they were warm and friendly and wished us well on our wedding day. The day itself run very smoothly. We had no worries at all. A great company and they really made our wedding day memorable!

    Food was a really important part of our day and we had been aware of Pieminister from festivals and the restaurants. As a vegetarian, it was also important to me to have a top-quality veggie meal without compromising the meat eaters. From the moment, we booked Pieminister you exceeded all of our expectations. You have been so helpful throughout and went above and beyond to make our day even more special. Most of all the pies were absolutely delicious with many of our guests angling for a second.

    We cannot thank you enough Pieminister!

    From the moment we first contacted Pie Minister, we knew they were the team for us. The wedding planning with Faye and Katie went so smoothly, covering every detail to put us at ease.

    On the day itself, Tiegan and her team were on site nice and early to get set up and run through the day. We had a few queries on logistics and Tiegan put us at ease straight away, offering to take care of everything. The staff were superb, from setting up the tables, delivering drinks and canapes after the ceremony, serving the wedding breakfast and clearing up afterwards. And the pies (not to forget the mash, mushy peas and gravy) To die for!! Things really couldn’t have gone any better and with them managing things so well, we were able to relax and enjoy the afternoon.

    We opted for the cheese wedding cake from Pie Minister and I’m delighted we did. From the feedback we got from guests, that went down rather well too!

    We can’t thank you guys enough for making sure everything ran so smoothly on the day and the guests thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the service.

    Thanks Pie Minister, you were the BEST!!

    Planning a wedding can be a stressful experience but Pieminister made the process of working with a caterer easy. From the start, with their quick communication, helpful attitude and reasonable cost we have never regretted hiring Pieminister to caterer our wedding. Over the course of the year I had many questions and concerns for Pieminister due to having my reception at a dry hire venue, with the food affecting decisions of furniture hire, center pieces and overall design of our tables. Pieminister always responded to every question no matter how small quickly and clearly leaving me to be able to communicate the answer to other suppliers affected.

    On the day I used another supplier as our Bar Services and Pieminister were happy to work as one large team and aid the bar staff with serving drinks and topping up table wine to ensure the guests were always with a drink. The service supplied by Pieminister was great on the day and they worked exactly to the time schedule agreed.

    Not only is the service second to none the Pies are amazing! Every one of my guests commented on how original our food choice was and how delicious the Pies were!

    Thank you Pieminister for everything over the last year!
