Hi Mike and Claire

I just wanted to pass on our huge thanks for doing such an amazing job of the BBQ on Saturday for Jack’s birthday despite all of the rain! The food was absolutely delicious and all of our guests commented on how great it tasted and for us, to not have to host the event or man a BBQ in the rain was just the best feeling in the world!! You made things really easy for us and we would recommend you to everyone and the next time we have an event! Thankyou again, we really, really appreciate everything you did to make Saturday such a success.

This is just to thank you for your contribution on Friday 16 December. The food and drink was all very nicely done and I know it was a help to Juliet in particular to be able to leave that side of things in your hands.

I just want to say a big thank you again for such fantastic food at my husband and I’s 10th wedding anniversary party. There was nothing but praise for the both of you and of course the lovely food.

Hedi

Dear Mike & Claire,

We cannot thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts at how absolutely amazing the food was. Every single one of our guests asked us who did the food and how much they enjoyed it. There wasn’t much left due to how moorish it all was! We were absolutely blown away with the quality and how much effort we could see had gone in to the food you delivered us. We will highly recommend you whenever we are asked if we know someone who can provide a high quality catering service. We certainly won’t hesitate to get in contact if we host any further events. Thank you once again.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Emily & David

I want to thank you both so much for all you did yesterday, from the welcoming at the door to your efficient yet unobtrusive service throughout the afternoon.  Everyone commented on how well you mingled with friendliness and efficiency – it was like having a couple of friends with us who were being enormously helpful!

The food itself was excellent and delicious, there were many comments about it all, with the jam and cream scones, lemon drizzle cake and the banana and coffee and chocolate muffins coming in for particular praise!

I would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Thank you again for making a tough day easier.

Kind Regards

Lisa & Andrew

Hi Claire and Mike

Just wanted to send an email to say a massive thank you for your hard work at Lewis and Leonie’s wedding on the 24th March 2018. You and your team were fantastic, from the beginning contact you have been so helpful. Any changes we made you dealt with promptly. When we had some last minute dietary requirements due to ill health, you came up with alternative solutions for us and put our minds at rest straight away. On the day the food was fantastic – just what we wanted – and everyone commented on how delicious the meal was. I must also say how great your waitresses were – I have been at several weddings when the waiting staff were not helpful and looked so fed up – your girls were lovely and engaged with the guests really well. I cannot recommend you highly enough, and if I ever need to use caterers if the future I will definitely be in touch. Thanks again.

Please feel free to use this review as you wish – you were great!

Thanks,

Amanda

“Could not be happier with the service we received from the Absolutely Ravenous team both leading up to and on the day of our wedding. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly from start to finish. Very informative and communicated everything we needed to know/need promptly and professionally. All of the guests loved the food; although I’m guilty of loving the chocolate brownie pudding the most, it was amazing. Again could not be happier and we wish them all the best for the future!”

 

Regards,

 

Andrew and Georgey

We would like to repeat our thanks to you for your professionalism and sheer hard work at Laura`s wedding.

Mike and Claire and their team catered for 120 guests at the wedding of our daughter on 30 July 2016 serving drinks and “finger food” at a reception in the early afternoon and providing a sit-down buffet dinner in the evening.

Both the reception and the dinner ran like clockwork, reflecting a good deal of careful planning and preparation by Mike & Claire. This was all the more impressive because we experienced a half hour power cut an hour or so before we were due to sit down for dinner. It`s when things go wrong that you see just how good (or not)professional people areat what they do, and they passed the test with flying colours: there was absolutely no fuss and dinner was served about ten minutes later than scheduled,which i don`t think anyone noticed.

The food was well presented and delicious.The vegetarian dishes were particularly good, so much so that we had to ask the omnivore guests to hold back until all the vegetarians had helped themselves!

The team of waiters/servers/washers up were smart and efficient.

Bottom line: this is a thoroughly professional company which does what it says on the tin to a high standard. If occassion arises in the future, i`ll use them again like a shot.

Just a note to thank you for doing such a good job with the catering on Saturday night. Everyone thought the food was delicious and my particular favourite was the puddings… very naughty.

Mr & Mrs Stewart

Just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did on Saturday for our Son’s wedding at Lower Grange Farm in Maidstone.

To provide such a good service with no onsite kitchen was amazing; realise it must have been a daunting challenge and a bit of a nightmare but you guys did brilliantly and we can’t thank you enough for all your hard work.

The canapés were lovely and very frequent! Both the beef bourguignon and chicken dish we had were tasty and there was plenty of it, a guest who had the vegetarian dish was very complimentary about it and the trio of desserts was a good selection especially the strawberry shortbread heart.

We will certainly recommend Absolutely Ravenous to others.

Sue & Michael
