The most special, delicious meal

We had just 13 guests at our wedding, so we definitely wanted the meal to feel special. Of course we wanted our wedding meal to feel elevated, but we also didn't want it to feel fussy, either. Besides tasting delicious, we wanted our wedding food to feel like the kind of food we'd actually eat with our family and friends. The food was inviting, special, and truly stunning. He was really great at customizing a menu for us and were impressed by how he adapted dishes for our guests (vegetarian, lactose). We had canapes and a three course meal and every single thing was delicious. I may be a bit biased, but it was definitely the best wedding meal I've ever had and our starter, a tomato watermelon feta salad, was definitely the best version of that salad I've had in my life. Very grateful we went with John for catering our wedding and for creating such a memorable meal.

All Around Amazing!

STK are amazing! I would highly recommend.
My wife and I hired John to run our evening food at our wedding, he came in his awesome renovated horsebox and the guests loved it! We went for burgers for the evening, we discussed the menu with John picked 2 different options and he even included a Vegan option.

The feedback from the guests was second to none with many going back for a second! The whole process from booking to feeding was seamless and efficient. So much so we even booked him 6 months later for my wife's 30th birthday, for this he moved some of his calendar about and made the time for us!

We highly recommend John and Smoke Tin Kitchen

P.S he also sells his incredible homemade sauces to take home

Your guests will be talking about the food for years to come

Lets be honest food at your wedding is a big deal, we have all been to a wedding were the food was mediocre at best. As two massive foodies and having only 14 guests at our wedding the food was something we were determined to get right, we were not going to settle and we really found the most amazing caterers in John at Smoke Tin Kitchen.

We altered our menu a few times but nothing was too much hassle, he made sure all the linens matched our colour scheme, the waiting staff were polite and very professional.

My god the food, every course was just out of this world. It has been a few weeks since our wedding and both ourselves and our guests are still talking about just how outstanding the food was, I am actually sad I may never get to taste food that good again, so much so we might have to hire John to do a us a private dinner for two on our wedding anniversary. Cannot recommend John and the Smoke Tin Kitchen enough. 5/5

Absolutely amazing service, from the menu tasting through to the day of the wedding cannot fault smoke tin kitchen at all.
The passion for good quality products and making a really personal menu to the couple it was perfect.
Everyone at the wedding commented how stunning the steak was and could not fault the service staff, they were very attentive, friendly and polite.
