Who's Been Talking About Us?

At Ginger Catering we don't like to brag, however every now and again we receive a lovely testimonial that makes us feel special and reinforces why we do what we do - plus, we love it when others do it for us!

Hi Sally,

So sorry for the delay in replying, we just got back from our honeymoon the other day and we are slowly adjusting to normal life. Not sure what we are meant to do with our time now!

Thank you so so much for all your help on our special day, you guys were amazing and helped make the day go so smoothly. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about how great the food was and how lovely everyone was!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and hope one day we get to work together soon!

Thanks so much again!

- Lucy and Laurie , Nov 17

Dear Sally

What can I say? I literally have no words for how absolutely amazing you and your team are!

I had no idea of quite what you could achieve and how superbly professional and kind you all were at the same time!

The comments from every guest has been literally overwhelming. Great British classics, best food ever at a wedding, who did the food it was amazing and on and on.

The food presentation was just inspiring and the taste, just perfect.

Every course was more than we could have ever imagined. People were taking photos of the Canapes they were so just beautiful and the evening food, well one guest said it was stupendous!

The service levels were just the best and better than we have received in some very 'high end' establishments. The difference being you all actually cared and you could feel that you wanted it to be perfect for us and that's a rare special quality that these days is sadly missing in so many companies, you're staff love you and so the team vibe was a 'team' add all these qualities together with your obviously absolutely amazing chef and you have a totally winning formula.

All in all I think I have never experienced such an exceptional level of complete professionalism all round. Totally flawless.

I can't recommend you guys highly enough and I'm afraid you are stuck with me for life now!

Not that I ever plan to do another wedding, although we have had messages saying please do my wedding ha ha, I seriously couldn't do all that again and I totally admire how hard you work and your total effort to make sure everything is perfect is just humbling.

You should win every award going and double your prices (after mine)ha ha ha !!!

Thanks so much for getting these last bits for me that was the only panic in the whole process and in a 3 month wedding plan I happen to think that was absolutely awesome!

I am now your new promotor and you will be sick to death of seeing pictures I need some pics of the food though and we are hoping that the photographer took some!

So many thanks for making Amy and Mark's day more than they could have ever dreamed and as parents it's a 'job done' tick and we are heroes for such a fabulous one! So we will enjoy the reflected glory for today and then back on the treadmill tomorrow!

Next time we do a launch for anything you're my girl!

Love and kisses

We hired Somerley House for a week’s stay for a group of 8 VIPs visiting Wiltshire for 7 days. Ginger catering worked alongside the Somerley Estate and I cannot thank them enough for making our week so enjoyable and yummy!

We were catered for breakfast, a 3 course meal and cheese for an entire week and every meal and service was utterly faultless even with Sally’s broken wrist!

Sally’s flexibility during our stay was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and her team were unfazed with any of our demands including bringing back various unexpected produce for her chefs.

The food was not only beautiful to look at but incredible to taste, I am still dreaming about her butternut squash soup and the banana tarte Tatin to name but a few.

The team have got completely the right attitude when it comes to customer service, smiley, quick thinking, fun, yet very professional and just a pleasure to be around.

I literally cannot recommend Ginger Catering enough, I will most definitely be using them again.

Thank you thank you thank you.

Best Wishes

- Georgie, Grace and Richard, Sep 17

Dear Sally and your amazing team!

We cannot thank you enough for everything you did on Saturday! You were all incredible and everybody came to tell us how amazing the food was and how attentive, kind and fun the staff were! One friend said in front of his wife (who got married in July) that it was the best wedding food he had ever had! Much to her dismay.

Everything ran so smoothly, and we didn't have to worry about anything. The food was as fabulous as we remembered and everyone was so full! So success all round!

If we can recommend you or review your amazing team in any particular places or ways, please let us know, as you deserve all the recognition possible! Your support throughout the last 10 months, and your patience with all my last minute questions and requests was so kind and reassuring!

Thank you again.

- Georgie and Dan, Sep 17

Hi Sally, thank you so much for making our Wedding Day is the most perfect day ever. We had such a fabulous time and it was topped with the bestest food, waitressing and bar service. Your team were super polite, the food was absolutely incredible, the set up to perfection and so easy.

We can't thank you enough. I hope that everyone behaved well, I apologise as I know I was a little bit tipsy to say the least (ooopsie!).

Now we have to think of another function where we can have Ginger Catering! We will be recommending you to everyone that we meet (all the guests were so impressed with the food, everyone commented on how gorgeous it was).

Where is the best place to write a review?

Many thanks again,

- Anna and Luke, Sep 17

Morning Sally

Once again, we can’t thank you enough for making our day so splendid.

You and your team were absolutely amazing, right from the initial enquiry, during the whole planning and tasting stages and of course throughout the whole day itself.

Scott and I have been inundated with compliments about the food and the service, and I have happily been passing on your details to a few interested people.

Once again thank you.

- Ellen & Scott, Aug 17

Dear Sally

Please thank Katie & the team from Nick & me for their hard work on Saturday. The party was a great success & the weather was perfect!

Thanks again & best wishes

- Amanda B-B, Aug 17

Hello Sally

Thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday night and we had so many compliments about the food which was absolutely wonderful - and delicious! As well as the presentation being really pleasing.

Your team were excellent and very attentive and so much appreciated.

Again, a big thank you to you and all involved.

- Margaret, Aug 17

Dear Alex, Sally and Christian,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for helping us to have a very successful launch party on Saturday. Everything went smoothly and we had a great turnout despite the weather!

Somerley House is a wonderful venue and combined with the delicious food and professional but simple AV set up, we could not have asked for more.

Many thanks for all your help and enthusiasm. I hope there will be another opportunity to work together!

Warm regards

- Needra, Jul 17

Sally,

I hope your event went really well.

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to Georgie, Matt and the team for doing a phenomenal job last night. It was truly outstanding. The feedback has been amazing. It all tasted delicious and the presentation was spectacular.

The tasting was also a huge success. The Deputy Head of Events and also the lady from the Presidents Office were both very impressed.

You'll be hearing from me in the future. And please do send over photos from last night in due course.

- Kirsty Joy, Jul 17

Dear Sally

Thank you so much for a lovely dinner last night here on a Windy beach. It went really well and a number of people asked who my cooks were so expect some referrals!

I am sorry my kitchen was quite so chaotic but it all sorted out in the end and we didn’t have too much to clear up this morning at all.

The Sea Bream was delicious and could have jumped out of the sea right there onto our plates.

Many thanks. Please pass my best wishes to your cook and other staff.

- Mary Montagu-Scott, Jul 17

Hello

Just a short note to offer our sincerest thanks to you and ALL the Ginger team who supervised at the wedding here last Saturday.

It couldn't have been done better, food and service were great, compliments to the chef, staff were unobtrusive, helpful and very efficient. We were curtailed by the appalling weather but it didn't interfere with anyone's enjoyment of the occasion. This was in large part due to your organisation.

Just a short note to offer our sincerest thanks to you and ALL the Ginger team who supervised at the wedding here last Saturday.

So, many thanks and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ginger.

- Annette and Andrew Sainsbury, Ben and Sam Clark, Jul 17

Hi Sally,

Thank you so much for the wonderful catering on Saturday night! The food was truly delicious - everyone has been saying so! Thanks for absolutely everything!!

Thanks again.

- Phi, Jul 17

Hi Sally,

Once again on behalf of Jackie and I can I say how delighted we were with everything you did today. The quality and presentation of the food was truly exceptional. Your attention to detail was exemplary and you had such a lovely team!

My daughter, who as I said, runs the PR for Sainsbury's high-end food and drink, could not stop telling all her friends this evening about how good the catering was today.

Once again, many, many thanks,

- Mark, Jul 17

Hi Sally

What can we say, you and your staff were phenomenal, we were so proud to have you as our caterers. Our friends and family all commented on how good the food was and how delightful you and your staff were. Thank you so much and hopefully our paths will cross in the future.

Best wishes

- Sue and Chris, Jun 17

From the day I met Ginger Catering I knew our dinner at Romsey Abbey was in safe hands, they are fantastic to work with and nothing is too much trouble for Sally and Matt. Their organisation of the catering running up to the event and on the day was perfect, the menu was amazing and the compliments just keep coming in on the food and service, thank you so much for making our 25th Anniversary Dinner so special and helping us to raise so much money on the evening, can’t wait to work on the next one with you.

Hi!

We had the absolutely perfect day and wouldn't change a thing!

Also, SO many people made a special point of telling us that the food was outstanding and we heard more than once it was the best wedding food they had ever had! Sean and I certainly enjoyed the food immensely and it all went as perfectly as planned! Also the timings and service was impeccable and your staff were so professional!

Thank you to you and your team!

Thank you again for your wonderful service yesterday. I went home and told my husband about the Gin & Tonic Salmon and he was intrigued.

If you could share the recipe it would be gratefully received in our household!!!

Please do keep in touch.

- Nic Wallace-Walton, Jun 17

Hi Sally

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a lovely evening on 1st April. The food was delicious, the canapés looked stunning and you really provided a fantastic service with nothing being too much trouble. It really made for a perfect evening, and I can't thank you and your team enough.

I won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and look forward to working with you in the future.

- Emily , Apr 17

Hi Sally

I wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for yours, Matt's and Georgina's help at the event on Friday. I know Michelle thanked you before you left but for some reason I missed you - sorry about that!

The food looked absolutely gorgeous and tasted just as delicious (I managed to grab a couple after you'd left!) - I heard lots of very positive feedback from guests. I hope it went well from your perspective as well? Was the Library okay for you to work in?

Hope to see you again very soon!

- Natalie, Apr 17

Hi Sally

Thank you so much for the lovely canapés last week and apologies for not getting back to you sooner.

You certainly came with a wow factor and they were very impressed. Thank you also for allaying their fears about the service as well.

Thanks

Hi Sally,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the food you provided for the MindWorks party.

The theming of the presentation was perfect, and you really thought about every detail. But not only did it look amazing it also tasted amazing. We have had so much great feedback regarding the food and the service and we've all been dreaming about the food since!

Thanks for all the hard work you put in at short notice.

Paris & Kayleigh - , Oct 16

Dear Sally,

We had an excellent evening thank you. The food and the service were all we could have wished for, and many of the guests commented especially on the delicious fish.

Thank you, Matthew and the staff for all your help in catering for the evening. We raised over £1,200 for the brave crews of the RNLI.

- Dom & Marian, Oct 16

I cannot thank you enough for such a spectacular and stress free meal!

You really went above and beyond for us, and the service was pure perfection! The desserts were a massive hit! They were such a visual and gastronomical delight! I cannot believe the amount of detail that went in to the chocolate mess! Everyone has been texting to let us know they're missing all the delicious food!

You've been wonderful to work with, and made the most special day even more special!

It's been an absolute pleasure working with you, and we hope to plan many more lovely meals with you again in the future.

- Reem, Oct 16

Sally & Matthew,

Thank you once again.

- Ken & Ann - Private Party, Sep 16

If you are considering using Sally and Matt for your catering don't think anymore - just book them. We used them for our wedding catering last week and I cannot stress enough how delicious the food was, they totally surpassed my expectations and all of our guests are still raving about the food. Thank you guys, I would totally recommend you to anyone, not just the catering but the care you put in makes you awesome at what you do!

Hi Sally!!

I hope you are well.

Just wanted to send you a message to say a Massive Thank you for everything on our Wedding day! Lots of comments on how lovely the food was, I loved it all and the lovely dessert table! Appreciate all you help and hard work as well as the team everyone was so nice!

I will also make sure I pop a comment on your Facebook page and recommend you!

Thanks!

- Jen

Our last visitors have just gone and the first thing I want to do is to thank you for such amazing food last Saturday. What you produced was absolutely incredible and you and your team should be extremely proud of yourselves. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented and there were so many compliments flying around I lost count. Our dairy free friend made a particular point of saying thank you for her 'spread'.

Your standards have always been so high in the past and we never doubted that you would continue in that way now you were on your own and we were certainly not disappointed. Your attention to detail, the fact that nothing was too much trouble and all the help you gave Greg and Emily prior to the day were much appreciated. The wedding was wonderful and it was a perfect day in all respects helped in no small way by Ginger Catering.

We sincerely hope and believe you will go from strength to strength and if you ever need a recommendation or would like us to speak to someone who has not dealt with you before we would be only too willing to help.

Best wishes and many thanks once again.

- Anon

I would like to thank & praise you once again, for the wonderful service you & your team provided on Saturday at Emily & Gregs wedding. It was absolutely wonderful, well done to all of you, keep up that great high standard & I'm sure you will have a wonderful future ahead of you. We certainly will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you!!!

- Jane, Emily's Mum

Having attended a friend's birthday event where Matt prepared the most amazing spread was unbelievable. I can honestly say that this guy knows how to prepare some of the best food many of us have ever tasted. Good luck with your business venture and I know you will succeed. Matt catered for around 100 people and you can be sure those 100 enjoyed everything that was served up. Fantastic!!

- Tony Mabbett

Sending massive congratulations on your new role!!

You provided such an amazing customer experience throughout my wedding plans! Taking care of every last detail making the day absolutely perfect! Wishing you the very best in your exciting new venture, I can't recommend you enough!

Best wishes, Kim :-)
