Dear Jock and Caroline, 
 
We were really pleased with all the catering and everything that you and Caroline and the team did to ensure that the event ran smoothly. My parents and all of our family thoroughly enjoyed the whole party. It was the perfect way to mark my father’s 90th birthday. 
 
Thank you again. 
 
Best wishes 
 
Caroline 
Dear Caroline and Jock, 
 
So it is the day after the big day and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say Thank You. Simon and I were absolutely delighted with your catering services.  
The food was amazing, the staff were absolutely lovely and all in all it was all so professional.  
The whole evening ran so smoothly and as soon as you arrived I felt so comfortable that I could leave all the food (and drinks of course) in your capable hands and just get on with socialising. 
 
Many of our guests commented on the lovely food and there was certainly plenty to go around – absolutely fantastic and exactly what we had hoped for. 
So thank you again for all your help. 
Kind regards 
Camilla and Simon 
Hi, Caroline and Jock,

Thank you all so much for a really great spread! The food was wonderful-the hot canapés were perfect for such a cold afternoon. You, Caroline and all your helpers were so efficient and really ensured everything went smoothly. We had a lot of nice compliments about you all from our friends. 
It was an extremely good funeral tea....just what was wanted. Thank you very much. 
Stevie and I wanted to say a massive thank you to Jock, Caroline and all the staff for making our wedding day so fabulous. The 3 course dinner and hog roast was just amazing and with your help the day went very smoothly. In fact, we couldn’t have wished for anything more.

Dear Caroline and Jock, 
 
We just wanted to say a very big thank you to you both, and all of your helpers, for making our birthday celebration party such a special day. Everybody commented on how delicious the food looked and tasted, with many coming back for second helpings, as well as the great service delivered by you all. 
 
When planning a party, you have in your minds eye what you are hoping for and Dad and I both felt that the party truly delivered everything that we hoped it would. And thankfully the British weather didn't let us down! It truly was a memorable occasion and we thank you again for your contribution to it. 
 
Kind regards 
The family have dispersed and all felt gratified by the love, friendship and respect shown to their mother by the large number at the funeral. We are all very happy with your arrangements and the way you looked after the guests and ourselves. We did underestimate the numbers ! But it seemed there was still food left towards the end, so there was enough thanks to your planning. So thank you very much indeed for the delicious food and thoughtful service. 
 
With best wishes 
Thank you very much to Caroline and yourself, we were delighted with both the food and service you provided. The canapes were perfect! At times it got rather busy but you all copied admirably and the girls did an excellent job in ensuring the food was distributed to all and glasses topped up. 
Sincere thanks to you and Caroline for all your hard work on Friday. We really appreciated your help. It made a difficult day so much easier. 
Many thanks for the catering on Thursday evening. Everything ran very smoothly and I believe everyone enjoyed the event.

Many thanks again 
I shan't be around when tent is collected, but just wanted to say a big thank you for the superb performance and fayre you served up yesterday. 
 
I would also like you to congratulate the young people who did a lot of the footwork - they were so personable and friendly. Everyone, without exception, was impressed. 
 
We will no doubt be in touch again at some point (hopefully soon), but in the meantime take care and good luck with all your up-coming events. 
 
Very best wishes. 
Thank you for your help and professionalism. It took away all the worry and helped made the day an unexpectedly happy celebration of Richard’s life. The balance has been transferred today, and I would welcome a receipted account to help with the administration. 
 
We will be in Fingringhoe at weekends for many months to come and do plan to come to Church again so hope to see you again. 
 
Best wishes, and thank you again,

Good morning. 
 
Just to let you know that I have payed the balance via bank transfer and would be grateful if you could let me know it has been received. 
 
Sorry for the delay, we had limited wifi on honeymoon. Also my parents would like to say thank you for the delicious food and all your help. They are sorry they didn't get to thank you in person on the day. 
We really did have a fantastic time! And we’ve just returned from an equally brilliant honeymoon. 
 
Thanks once again to you, Caroline & the team. We were really pleased. 
 
Kind regards, 
David and I would like to thank you and your staff very much for the superb lunch and service you gave our guests on Sunday. We have received many complimentary comments which we pass on to you! We were blessed with wonderful weather which added to the occasion, as well as "friends and family reunited", many of whom had not seen each other for many years. Together with the delicious food, it all went to make a very memorable occasion. 
 
Your staff were excellent, greeting our guests with a welcoming drink. Needless to say, two bottles of Pimms were found when we emptied the chiller wagon - if only Alastair had found it on the day! Ah well. I don't think all our guests realised coffee was available. The strawberries have been duly frozen and will make wonderful jam when I have time. 
 
I must just tell you about two "uninvited guests". I noticed a couple arrive and receive their Pimms and thought I don't know who they are - I must ask David before I embarrass myself by not recognising them. However, David didn't know who they were either. On investigation it turned out that they had been heading for Beth Chatto Gardens and were redirected because of road works. They knew that Open Farm Sunday was on so thought we were taking part. I'm not sure all farms participating in Open Farm Sunday offered Pimms to their guests! They duly drank their Pimms and set off!! It caused us a great deal of giggles, as you can imagine. 
 
I have the two pink napkins and one white napkin which I was planning to post back to you, but if you are passing and are able to return the small wellington boot at some time, then we will keep the napkins here. 
 
Once again, many thanks for helping to make a wonderful day for us. 
 
Kind regards 
I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for the fantastic catering on Saturday. I have heard nothing but praise about the food…..that cheesecake, absolutely beautiful! 
 
Jock – a personal thanks for being so patient with me, you really did help keep me calm! And finally your waitresses especially the main lady were great, so lovely and friendly. 
 
If I do get roped into doing it again next year, there is no doubt that you will be first on my ‘to call’ list. I will be in touch once I know when the club is open for you to collect your foil etc. 
 
Thank again. 
Thank you for the great food and service at my father's funeral - many positive comments re the food. 
 
Kind Regards 
Thank you both so much for another excellent dinner at the Nottage on Saturday night. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all (and the arrangement for the cheese seemed to go down well!!) The service and all you did to help in setting up were much appreciated as always. 
 
I am sorry the number of helpers on Sat morning was fewer than usual resulting in more work for you. Your team are always so willing and able to surmount all difficulties and we do thank you for that. 
 
With best wishes to you both for a Happy Christmas and a very successful 
New Year. 
We just wanted to say thank you for the lovely food and service you provided for our wedding on the 18th May. We had an amazing day and the guests had a great time and your fantastic food had a big part to play! 
 
Best Regards 
Dear Caroline, 
 
Thank you so very much for catering for our party last Sunday. The food was delicious and much commented upon and your efficient and courteous staff helped to make the event a great success 
 
Kind Regards and Many Thanks 
Thanks again for your splendid food and service. 
Thank you both so much for doing everything so beautifully and efficiently on Saturday and helping to make it all great fun! The food was delicious - as always! 
 
Thank you both very sincerely, 
Just a quick note to thank you very much for the lovely spread you put on for Pops funeral on Friday. 
 
Your whole team worked solidly whilst people were here and it was quite full at the beginning. Sorry I didn't get a chance to see you at the end but you left the place just as you found it, thanks. 
 
The food was delicious, especially the coronation chicken sandwiches and the lovely sausages. Mum especially loved the coconut "thingies" 
 
Thanks again 
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful food you produced for us on Friday 13th April. Everyone commented on the quality of it and were very impressed with the presentation. It helped to make a sad occasion better. Thank you so much. 
 
I will let you know as soon as I have finished with the platters. 
 
Best regards 
All best wishes and thank you again for a great job on Friday. Nigel
