Testimonial

Paula and Steve were recommended to my fiancé and I, as caterers for our New Years Eve after our wedding caterer let us down and cancelled. We were, at the time, very worried about our proposed wedding date, and could see our ambitious plans to arrange a New Years Eve wedding in less than 6 months falling to pieces.

From the moment we first spoke to Paula I think we knew had found our perfect caterer. Paula listened to what we wanted, not simply from a food perspective but also the atmosphere we wanted to create, being a formal but intimate dinner for 80 people in a marquee (no mean feat!). The menu proposed by Paula and Steve was not chosen from the typical multiple choice wedding menus we had previously experienced, but created for us having talked and listened to us. The ingredients to be used were also predominantly local, which was very important to us. We also got the opportunity to sample the proposed menu and it was everything we hoped it would be.

However Paula and Steve did more than just give us a great menu, they gave us confidence that every aspect of the service would be top quality. Steve visited the proposed marquee site, wanted to understand our drinks choices, helped with arranging the catering equipment (someone we then used for various other hire items for the marquee), to make sure that nothing was left to chance. When you are organising a wedding its natural to worry about every aspect of the day and Paula and Steve understood that and kept reassuring us, which was exactly what we (especially the bride!) needed.

The day itself was not problem free, bad weather meant we had had to change the marquee site only days before and resulting problems with the marquee itself meant that Steve and the team had to arrive earlier than anticipated. Despite these changes happening only the day before Steve and his team made sure that their service was not compromised in any way. They set up the tables, exactly as we wanted and made a very stressed bride feel at ease with how the day would pan out.

From the moment we arrived from the Church the service from Paula and Steve and the team was second to none. The champagne reception was faultless and the canapés served with the champagne were perfect. The monkfish saltimbocca in particular got rave reviews. The dinner was fantastic, from the homemade bread to the perfectly cooked Welsh beef our wedding breakfast was the best fare we have had at a wedding. I had heard so many stories about bride's not eating a thing at their wedding - this was certainly not true for me and I ate everything! The dessert of chocolate torte was the perfect finish for the dinner. The cake of Welsh cheeses they provided for us, together with the chutney etc was just the ticket for those guests who could then actually find room for more food as the night went on. Significantly, all this food was prepared in a tent! Amazing!

The fact we insisted that Paula, Steve and the team come out at the end of the meal for a thank you and the cheer from the guests shows that the dinner and the evening generally was a triumph. We are still getting comments on the food and the meal even got a great review in our wedding book!

Tom and I would highly recommend Steve and Paula for any wedding, as they delivered everything and more for us in the run up to and on the day. From a guests perspective the key things for a successful reception are the food and drink and Paula and Steve provided us with a very successful day!

We are very grateful for all Paula and Steve did for us for the day and we are more than glad our original caterer cancelled!

TESTIMONIAL FOR STAFFORD HOUSE We have great pleasure in writing a testimonial for Stafford house, Menai Bridge, Anglesey. We have used the above establishment on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The quality of the food was absolutely outstanding, and even more than that, the owner and staff have been more than a pleasure to deal with from suggestions with the menu, presentation, and delivery. We have no hesitation in recommending Stafford House for any kind of occasion and will certainly be using them for all our important events. Paul has certainly come up trumps at short notice so no-one should ever feel let down of using her services. We wish Paula and her staff good luck in continuing to serve all the community with such good grace. Jim and Barbara Cleaver Glan-y-Menai House Glyn Garth Mindel - BBC Team Stafford House provided our lunch over 2 days. The food was home cooked, quality ingredients used and full of flavour and great value for money. The crew loved it and went back for seconds!! It was delivered to us on time and the service was excellent. Big thanks to Stafford house for looking after us. Kind Regards Mindell Bowen BBC Broadcasting House Bargain Hunt Room 10a OB BASE Whiteladies Road Bristol BS8 2LR Hi Paula Very, very belatedly, for which I apologise, I just wanted to say how glad we are that we decided to use Stafford House do do the catering for our party in July. We had the enormous good fortune to choose quite simply the best weekend of the summer for our party, but we also happened upon a really fantastic - and local - team at Stafford House for the food and drink. You really took care of every detail; the pimms to start with, and the canopes, looked lovely and disappeared far too quickly, the food tasted great (we had lots of comments about the food, and the wheel barrow ice buckets were genius for the wine and beer. Your staff were lovely - and taking the trouble of finding me in the middle of it all and producing a plate of food for me which I did then eat (but wouldn;t have thought of if you had not given it to me) was really so thoughtful! And delicious. We have no hesitation in recommending Stafford House and will use you again - but it could be another 25 years before we do anything like that again!! Thank you so much. Julie ps you are very welcome to use any of the above as a testamonial or whatever!
