  • Hi Dave,
    Just wanted to say how much everyone appreciated the hog roast last Saturday night. We had several local people who have had their fair share of hog roasts and every one of them paid compliment to yours. Many thanks for being a significant contributor to the success of our evening.

  • Hi Dave,

    I just wanted to say thank you for your superb catering last Saturday. The canapés were delicious, the pork and salads were great and the puddings were amazing. The staff were very efficient and friendly; we could not have asked for more! Thanks again!

  • Dear Dave

    Just wanted to let you know that Scott and the team were fantastic yesterday at our medieval Fair.
    We were blessed with a brilliant day's weather and the Hog Roast went down a storm!!!! Please pass on my thanks to Scott and his helpers. True professionals and a real quality service.
    I asked lots of the 350 students what was their favourite bit of the day...number one was...The Hog Roast! Many, many Thanks...great hog, great service.

  • Dear Dave,

    I'm sorry this is so late, but, as you might imagine, things have taken a while to settle down! Now Jess and Ed are somewhere beyond the reach of radar or email on the high seas and Nick is in Korea, so there is a moment of calm to say a huge thank you to you and your whole team for everything that you did to make J and E's wedding such a resounding success. An enormous amount of very hard work goes into making such an occasion and you were the backbone of the whole affair. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the pies, about which I am still receiving letters and cards full of accolades! We were all really impressed and enjoyed working with you.

  • Hi,
    I would just like to say that Scott and Cody did a fantastic job for our 60th Birthday Party on Saturday. They couldn't have been more helpful... and the hog was absolutely delicious and well received by our guests.

    Many thanks

  • Hello Dave
    Sorry for the belated email but I wanted to thank you for all your hard work last week. We had a great day (thank goodness the weather was kind) and there were loads of great comments about the food. You were punctual, smart, delivered tasty food and packed up discreetly. What more could we ask? THANK YOU!

    I would be very happy to recommend you.

    Best wishes

  • Dave
    I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your service on Saturday evening. The quality of food was commented on by all. There were some guys from the running club that are notorious for their eating who said they could not manage a mouthful more!!

    From the moment you arrived, through the very professional way you presented the food, right up to clearing away and leaving quietly, it was a great experience for us.
    Many thanks

  • Hi Dave
    We are just back from honeymoon and wanted to say thank you so much for catering our wedding at Huntsham Court on 28 August. I remember when we booked with you as we were asking loads of questions and just just said we didn't have to worry about anything at all to do with food because you'd take care of it all. Well I can honestly say that of all the suppliers we used you were the best. So professional and so low maintenance! You just turned up and quietly got on with it with no fuss and and delivered an amazing result. It was so good not to have to even think about it. Out guests all commented on the excellent tasty and plentiful food both the BBQ breakfast and the main wedding dinner. Your staff were polite and efficient. An I was very grateful for the extra effort you went to to accommodate my weird dietary requirements! The attention to detail was really impressive. Thank you so much. I would recommend you without reservation.
    Best wishes

  • Hi Dave
    Just a quick note to say thank you for the wonderful service you gave us for Chris and Emily's Wedding last Saturday. The lamb was superb, so good I noticed there wasn't any left after seconds. The Dorset Apple cake was the best ever (even though it was made in Devon, and not Dorset where we come from). I had 2 slices, I would have had more but I was full. Everyone commented on how good the food was and how lovely everyone serving was. You really helped make the whole event a great success and the efficiency of service was a real triumph - everyone served and eating in super quick time. And thanks for all those little extras of help that made our lives so much easier. Its hard to organise an event like this, but with help from professionals like you it all passed off brilliantly.
    With Best Wishes

  • Hi Dave
    It was fantastic!! Thank you so very much - the food was great and you were really good fun to have around... so many people said it was the best pork they'd ever tasted!!
    Thank you! Four weeks on from our wedding and we're still getting calls from our guests about the day... and all of them say how much they enjoyed the food!
    From our first meeting I felt confident and happy that it was the right decision to book our hog roast with you - so thanks for proving me right... No fuss, no problems - just beautifully cooked food and great friendly service... perfect!
    Dave - these comments may sound a bit cheesy - but I assure you that is how we really feel... thanks again.
    Tim and Denise (Cadeleigh Exeter August 2013)
  • Dear Dave

    I would like to thank you very much for the excellent service that you provided at our Wedding and apologise that this has taken so long to do. Your staff were first class and even stepped in to make teas and coffees for our guests which wasn't part of there job at all. Everyone commented that the food was fabulous I think speaks for itself.

    Should we be looking to have another function at any time we will be giving you a call.

    Best regards.
    André and Dennise Beard (Longdown Exeter July 2013)
  • Hi Dave
    A huge 'Thank you'...almost as huge as the pork baps our guests were seen munching! The hog roast exceeded all our expectations. The service was absolutely superb; professional, cheerful and hassle free. It really made the catering side of the reception very special, turning what could have been a rather daunting experience for us, (never having had an event of this size at the farm before) into something thoroughly enjoyable.
    Thanks again.
    Fiona and Dom (Pennymoor Exeter July 2013)
  • Hi Dave,

    It's Emma!
    We were delighted with the service on the 13th July, I would like you to praise your staff - not only were they incredibly brilliant but everyone was nuts about the food - especially the desserts.
    I was more focussed on the crackling - I pulled rank as 'bride' and stole it off everyone's plates.
    Thanks again,
    Emma and Dave (Polhawn Fort July 2013)
  • Hi Dave,
    Just wanted to email to say thank you so much for all your help, and to Scott for doing a brilliant BBQ. It was such a hot day, he must have been baking but didn't complain once. The food was great, all the guests were really impressed. Will definitely be recommending!!

    Thanks again.

  • Hi Dave

    I just wanted to write and say a big thank you to you and your team for providing our evening catering at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. I think your team had their work cut out as everyone had had a bit to drink but you managed impeccably.
    Thank you once again, it helped make our day perfect!

    Kind regards Sarah

  • Dear Nora.
    I was so upset that I did not realise the time and therefore did not say âthank youâ and goodbye on Friday evening. But I understand that Jonathan did manage to see you before you left.
    Everyone enjoyed your lovely Hog Roast and the delicious salads and puds. It really was a great success, due in no small part to you and your staffs input to the evening.
    Jan Lowe (June 2013 at Sherborne Castle)
  • Dear Dave and Team,
    Will and I are just back from a few days away and wanted to take a few moments to thank you and your team for an absolutely perfect food experience last Saturday! Words cannot even begin to describe how much of a pleasure it was to have you and your team at our wedding....not only was every aspect of the food delicious and perfect, the service was wonderful and personal too. Each member of your team was great fun and a pleasure to have around, making every effort to ensure that each guest was happy and well-fed! As a bride, I didn't have to give anything a thought other than having fun with our guests, thanks to the hard work of you and your team. I really cannot thank you all enough!

    With the biggest of thanks and warmest of regards to you all,

    We really couldn't have asked for anything more from a caterer. You completely blow us away with your food as well as your service and as soon as we have our photos back we will send them to you. We will also be recommending you to everyone we can in the future.

  • Hi Dave
    We were very happy with the service and food thanks, everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the food, the strange thing was neither Aleks or I were eating on the Saturday - must have been all the nerves and adrenaline - but we very much enjoyed the pork whilst hungover the next morning! As did Elly our Springer spaniel who got more than her fair share!
    Thanks again!

  • Dear Dave
    Just a quick note to say a formal thank you to you and your 2 staff for the excellent service provided for my wife's party. The meats were excellent and copious, most people had seconds if not thirds!!!!! The veggies in our group thought their choice was superb.
    Excellent feed back continues to come in from our guests.
    Many thanks to Scott and his helper they made a good night excellent.
    We would not hesitate to recommend your services.
    Many thanks
    Dilys and Trevor Clarke Shillingford St George (03/11/2012)
  • Hi Dave,â¨Lisa and I wanted to thank your staff for a fantastic day. The service was excellant and the staff all worked hard to get to accomodate a slightly unusual venue. All the food went over the course of the weekend which is saying something as there was plenty of it. We have passed your details to the owner of Colehayes Park to add to her file of approved vendors so hopefully you will have some more business there in the future. â¨I found out afterwards that you had also catered another friends wedding (Simon Finch and Sarah Franklin) in Butterleigh (nr Tiverton) a couple of years ago as well.
    Tom and Lisa Lillywhite (Colehayes park) 13/10/2012)
  • Dear Dave
    Sorry not to have been in touch before . Everything went really well, the hog roast and your staff were excellent and everyone really enjoyed it and were very complimentary. Thank you so much . I will have to think of an excuse to have another hog roast next summer ! With kind regards
    Pauline Lyon-Smith (Stockligh Pomeroy) 07/10/2012
  • Dear Dave
    Just a note to thank you, Scott and your team for producing such a wonderful lunch for us all on Friday. The hog was roasted to perfection; we had so many positive comments about how delicious it was. We did appreciate Scott giving up his beauty sleep on Thursday night and am so pleased to say that it was definitely worth it. The canapés were excellent, but as you advised too many. I'll know for another time. I would have eaten more if I had had not been nervous about my speech & then dragged off for photographs! Thank you also for unobtrusively clearing away the plates etc & helping the afternoon to run smoothly.
    The left overs were appreciated later.
    I may well be in touch again next year for another event.
    With many thanks again to your team
    Gillian (Girlings Rentals Taunton 29/09/2012)
  • Dear Dave
    Just a quick line to thank you for your help and co-operation in supplying and attending to our Hog Roast for our 60âs & 70âs night at Bramford Speke in aid of our Presidents Charity âExeter, East & Mid Devon Samaritansâ on Saturday September 1st 2012.
    We had over 130 people to the event on the evening and a lot of people commented how tasty the pork was and indeed many came back for seconds.
    Your experienced chef did a fantastic job in cooking the hog from about midday ready for everyone to eat on time at approx 8.30pm.
    We would have no hesitation in using you again for any future events and recommending you to any other beings or organisations. Again many thanks to you and members of your staff for contributing to making our event so successful.
    Yours sincerely S P Snell
  • Hi Dave
    Just to say what a wonderful service Dave and his team provide. The food was
    fantastic and I highly recommend the white chocolate and raspberry tart. Dave managed to take the stress out of organising my daughters wedding and gave a service better than my expectations I would always be happy to recommend them and if anyone would like a verbal recommendation I would be more
    than happy to provide it.

  • Hi dave,
    I can't believe where the time has flown since our wedding. We are more than happy to write a testimony for your services.
    It was so great to have guests saying how tasty their food was, the guys chuffed with a big piece of crackling to go with it. Everyone seemed relaxed as the sun came out and it felt more of a BBQ type weather. Thank you for a great service, are you free for our 30th birthday next year??
    Many thanks Davina & Peter fletcher (21July 2012 Saltash)
