We were certainly extremely happy with the service provided by Jeeves Catering. Everything from the welcome drinks and table service was professionally delivered and front of house staff of Teresa and Libby was over and above. We have had many comments on the lovely food and efficient service which contributed to the day running as plan. Special thanks also to the bar staff who worked tirelessly to keep everything flowing through the evening.

Hannah and Michael send their special thanks too.

Food was fab! Thanks again

Graham - 9 Aug 2021

I cannot speak highly enough about Jeeves Catering.
After my original caterer cancelled 5 days before my event, my husband contacted Jeeves. Susan went out of her way to help us. She provided a finger buffet for 40 people. The quality of the food was exceptional and the service was 5*
I would have no hesitation in using their service again in the future or recommending them to friends and family
Thank you Susan and team

Pauline Daniel - 28 Jul 2021

We were absolutely delighted with both the food and the service. It made for a great night for both of us and we have had many compliments from our friends, some have asked for your contact details which we will pass on of course.

Please pass on our final thanks to all your staff who were delightful and very professional.

Malcolm and Lindsay Smith - 26 Jul 2021

We had a splendid afternoon thank you very much. It was lovely to get together with friends and family, some we had not seen for months (and 2 babies, never before).

The food was absolutely excellent in both quality and quantity, the canapés were superb and our 2 vegan guests were delighted with the food that was made for them.

The staff were amazing and worked very hard. The younger staff did a great job with service. Theresa and Debbie were both really good, friendly and helpful, and despite the hive of activity going on in our kitchen (which was a delight to see) it was spotless when they had gone.

I would certainly highly recommend Jeeves Catering.

Andrew and Janet - 12 Jul 2021

Thank you everything was fine, Theresa and Jai did a wonderful job.

Ally Fishe - 5 Jul 2021

The food and service were excellent on Saturday. We have had so many complements on both and of particular note was the fact that the main course was on hot plates!!

Sue - 30 Jun 2021

I just wanted to say such a big thank you for supplying our fabulous afternoon tea food for both Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th June . The food was amazing & so delicious ! Fabulous comments from our guests about it.
We really did have the most wonderful few days celebrating my daughters baby shower and you catering for it took the stress of the food away from me!!

Thank you also for the beautiful Rose plant ….my husband has already planted it in our garden - what a lovely kind gesture & really appreciated
