    Way above standard

    Andy catered for our wedding. He and his team did a wonderful job. Excellent quality! Everyone was talking about how good the food was!
    Andy is very laid back and approachable. We had no issues. We're so glad Andy was recommended to us. They really did make our day special

    Locally Sourced, Creative and Delicious Fare

    We could not have asked for a more supportive and professional experience with Andy and his warm and fabulous team.

    We felt heard in all our wishes and the team delivered above and beyond what we had hoped for. Nothing was too much trouble. Andy was a calming, charming and relaxed presence from our initial meetings, to a wonderful evening of food tasting at his gorgeous home, to our big day.

    The team swept us along and enabled us both to relax and enjoy our guests with not a worry or a second thought that our guests were not being treated to a culinary extravaganza and all their dietary and personal needs being met.

    As the bride a member of the team took it on herself to make sure I was ok through out the day and my every need met.

    Many of our guests sent charming thank you letters saying what a wonderful day they had had and all mentioned the delicious fare.

    We really could not recommend Andy and his team enough.

    Professional, flexible, superb food

    We had our wedding reception in a village hall in December, this required a great deal of flexibility, and came with a unique set of challenges when it came to supplying food for 90+ people. Andy and his team dealt with this superbly, and delivered a superb meal, no hiccups and were accommodating throughout. Unbelievably impressed with the service that we received.

    The food itself was brilliant. The original tasting session proved a challenge, but only because all of the plated options were delicious and choosing one above the others was difficult. Andy and his team cater for all dietary requirements.

    In terms of contact, approachability and accessibility an easy 5 stars. Regular zoom and face to face meetings in the build up to our wedding kept things on track and we both knew what food we were aiming for. Flexibility was key for us, and any changes to the plan were dealt with seamlessly.

    Would highly recommend.

    An excellent choice

    The Full Spoon are amazing caterers, the best you could ask for for your wedding or event. They provide a kind and friendly service from the start of planning to the end of your special day. They provided the most wonderful food and every mouthful was a complete joy. From canapé to desert, the quality is very high and professional, but there is nothing boring or predictable that you might expect at a wedding, The Full Spoon provide interesting and exciting food, catered to your wishes, even more typical dishes had an interesting twist that made all the food at the wedding delicious and all our guests loved it, even the picky eaters! We also had evening food which ensured everyone had enough energy to party on. Everyone was so impressed.
    The Full Spoon’s service is excellent and even throughout the COVID pandemic, they remained flexible and helpful. We would definitely recommend The Full Spoon for a wedding to anyone who will listen, we had the most magical, perfect day and all the delicious food contributed to this.

    Excellent standard

    Their service was exceptional from the outset and throughout, and Andy did everything he
    could to accommodate all of our requests. Their performance on the day was seamless and
    Andy was always calm and in control - coping with any last minute changes that we had in a
    very professional manner. Andyas choice in staff was clearly personal as each and every
    member of his team was hardworking and no job was ever too much for them. Our guests are
    still raving about the food, which was beautifully presented and executed to an excellent
    standard. We cannot thank them enough for making our day stress free, sophisticated and
    beautiful! We are all so glad that we chose The Full Spoon for our special weekend and
    recommend them highly!

    Only the best would do!

    My wedding weekend was the best weekend of my life and I had very high expectations
    and dreams of the food and drink that myself and my guests would enjoy. Only the best
    would do! My family and I decided to use The Full Spoon as our wedding caterers because
    they were one of the only caterers that really listened to our vision.

    We thought it would blow our guests socks off and it did

    We were really looking forward to the food at our wedding as we thought it would blow our
    guests socks off and it did - many of our guests said it was the best they’d ever had at a
    wedding. Andy gave us the casual sharing meal we were after but with a real high-end
    restaurant quality to both that and the canaps. And his friendly front of house team were
    unflappably calm which really helped us! Firstly because we were genuinely excited by the menu ideas he came up with at our initial
    meeting. Secondly because he gave us the confidence that he could deliver what he’d
    proposed, in a venue which was not the easiest to work in.

    Impressed!!

    We booked The Full Spoon because we were impressed by Andy’s clear passion for his

    Andy and his team completely exceeded our expectations

    We were looking for a menu of fresh, local produce that would appeal to everyone and
    work well served on platters in a family style. Andy and his team completely exceeded our
    expectations and helped create the relaxed, casual style of dining we were after. The food
    was absolutely incredible, and we had comments from so many people on how much they
    enjoyed it. Andy and his team went above and beyond to make our day special and I wouldn’t
    hesitate to recommend them to anyone and everyone.

    Great value, modern fresh menu ideas, easy to communicate with, used local ingredients.

    Andy at the Full Spoon was very welcoming and friendly from the start. Had loads of
    exciting fresh menu ideas and used locally sourced ingredients. His food was competitively
    priced and nothing was too much trouble. Full spoon came up with a great menu and loads of
    our guests said it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding! So many people asked us
    for their contact details afterwards. They also went beyond duty and helped with other stuff
    at the venue like lighting the fire pit!Great value, modern fresh menu ideas, easy to communicate with, used local ingredients.

    Andy was excellent throughout

    Andy was excellent throughout our planning for our big day. He dealt with a lot of changes

    The best choice

    Andy (the owner of The Full Spoon) was highly personable, down-to-earth and immensely
    knowledgeable. He was patient, flexible and adaptable and, amid the potential stresses of
    such an occasion, did not appear flustered or frustrated. The quality of experience to be had
    by our guests was his priority from the first conversation months before the event, to the
    time when I ordered him a taxi to stay on in the evening and celebrate a fantastic job done!
    He made us feel at ease and prioritised locally sourced produce that was in season; having
    had tastings with other caterers, many of whom came very well recommended, going with
    The Full Spoon became by far and away the best choice.

    Fantastic from start to finish

    Andy Spooner and his team were fantastic from start to finish. There were organised and
    generous, patient, calm and kind. They prioritised the guest experience and were flexible
    and adaptable to boot. The food is honest, unique and characterful; it is delicious, locally
    sourced produce that is in season and tastes superb. Employing The Full Spoon and working
    with Andy was a pleasure, it only added to what was a very special occasion; it would not
    have been the same without them.

    You completely nailed the brief

    The food was absolutely stunning, exactly what we had hoped for and thank you for completely nailing the brief! So many of our guests commented on how delicious everything was and, in many cases, how it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. A sentiment we wholeheartedly agree with!”
