An outstanding Event Catering Team

Henny, James and the team recently catered for our sons wedding on one of the hottest days of the year. They were a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process and delivered amazing food on the day. They were friendly and approachable throughout with great attention to detail. They are clearly a very experienced team, would definitely recommend them to others looking for a top notch caterer for their event.....you wont be disappointed.

Paxton & Brown - My Newly Discovered and Now Favourite Caterers

There’s a lot to organise when your daughter tells you she’d like to have her wedding at home. My biggest concern was the caterer. How on earth do you find a good one? It was pure luck (after a bit of trawling through the internet). When I first spoke to Henny and Holly on the phone they immediately sounded confident and easy to work with. I was also put in touch with James the chef He asked me what I was looking for on the catering side of the wedding. It was easier to tell James what I didn’t want: “I don’t want Table 1 to be starting dessert while Table 14 are just receiving their starter; I don’t want just one member of staff struggling to looking after 6 tables on their own, we need lots of waiters available and attentive; and I certainly don’t want to be served a sad piece of rubbery chicken breast which looks likes it’s spent the last 2 hours under a heat lamp! And nobody should leave the wedding feeling hungry.” James replied with “Sounds like you’ve been to the same dreadful weddings that I’ve been to” and I immediately knew that Paxton & Brown were a fab choice.

They were professional, confident, helpful, sensible, they skilfully fielded our numerous phone calls, emails, texts (even quite late one evening) and assured us that everything was under control. P&B were a delight to work with. Even in the trickiest moments of preparation we had such a laugh.

OMG! What a magnificent magical day! Nothing was too much trouble for Henny and the team. The food was absolutely delicious - I’ve had so many compliments from people about the catering: canapés, sit down meal and then a table laid up with fabulous food again in the evening. Our wedding was on one of the hottest days of the year - Henny came to warn me and apologise that the main course might be 5 minutes late as the staff were struggling slightly in the heat - I was amazed that they were all still standing!Any food left over from the evening buffet was packed up by P&B and put in my fridge.

So, book them for your parties - but I feel you’re going to have to move quickly as they are becoming very popular because they are so amazing! I’m already trying to find another excuse to book them!

Paxton and Brown - amazing wedding and event caterers... everyone should use them!

Paxton and Brown provided the catering for our wedding at home in my parents garden. They couldn't do enough to make the day run as smoothly as possible. The food was AMAZING and service on the day exceptional. It blows our mind how you produced such tasty food from a tent in the back of the field!!

Finally... if you were ever worried there wouldn't be enough food, don't worry. Paxton and Brown ensured there was PLENTY.

Once again, thank you so much to Henny and the team for providing such fantastic food for our wedding. We would recommend you to all our friends and family!

Incredibly delicious and professional caterers

The canapés, the main and evening food were all really special, and got very high praise from all of our guests throughout the day.
Throughout the whole process they really helped us with any requests that we had, and catered for all the different dietary needs in such a way that everyone had a similar version of the main menu, without feeling too left out. Even very odd last minute dietary need they managed to fix without any hassle.
They were very communicative the whole time, especially running up the big day, responding very quickly even if late at night.
Initially we didn't know what we wanted, but after a conversation with James, he got to know us, our backgrounds, and what we like, he then came up with a delicious sounding menu right off the bat on the same phone. It really made us confident that we would choose them to be our caterers. The tasting menu they put together was so good, it was difficult to choose what our favourite was.
Overall we were very happy with hiring Paxton and Brown, wouldn't haven't changed one thing, and would be happy to work with them again in future.
