Testimonials

Here’s a selection of lovely comments we have had from our happy customers

Dear Dave and team,

Thank you so much for all your efforts yesterday. You were brilliant from start to finish. Many of the guests complimented you on not only the food, which was the best wedding food ever, but also the service which was top notch. All the staff were very attentive throughout. Thank you!!

Let me know if you’d like me to write a review as I’d be happy to.

Best wishes, Elly

Dave and his team at field to fork catering were exceptional in the lead up and on the day of our wedding. They created our wedding menu from our specific suggestions and we were really happy with the wide variety of options Dave came up with, and how flexible and creative he was with menu whilst keeping it within our budget.

Dave impressed us with a pre wedding meeting where he went though each and every detail of the day which insured it ran without any hiccups.

All of the team on the day were very professional and assisted the ushers in making the food service run smoothly and efficiently. Dave even stood in the rain for over two hours to ensure the guests got there evening pizzas when a change in wind meant the pizza oven had to go outside the marquee.

We would strongly recommend Dave and his team for any function or wedding.

 

 

 

 

Field to Fork catered for our daughter’s wedding at the end of June 2015. We had a marquee in the garden and 130 guests there for the wedding ‘breakfast’. Katie is vegetarian and wanted a fully vegetarian meal. Dave and his team were absolutely superb throughout, from our first preliminary conversations with him to producing a wonderful end product. All our guests were amazed by the quality of the food, its beautiful presentation and the fact that every single mouthful was perfectly cooked and quite delicious. Almost everyone who wrote to thank us for the day commented on the fabulous food and many meat eaters also said they had no idea vegetarian food could be so delicious. We would recommend Field to Fork absolutely without reservation and know anyone who uses them will not be disappointed. In addition, it was also important to us to know that the food had been sourced as locally as possible and with an emphasis on ethical farming and animal welfare.

We were so happy to have Dave and his team cater for our wedding. The food we were offering was really important to my husband and I, and I contacted a lot of caterers. FieldtoFork’s quote was very competitive, and after looking through their menu and speaking to Dave, we decided to go for a taster meal. He gave me some great ideas for things we could try, and was quite happy to mix different parts of different menus. When I told him I wanted to try and stick to locally-sourced food, he came up with some specifically-tailored options for us to select.

At the taster, we were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food, and booked him straight away. Dave kept in regular contact throughout the whole planning process, coming to visit the site, and liaising with the owners of the venue to keep everything running smoothly. He even arranged for the hire and delivery if all the cutlery and crockery we needed for the meal.

Our only concern was that the quality we had tasted in the test-run wouldn’t be the same when preparing for such a large number of people. As soon as the first set of canapés came out on the big day, we knew we were fine! We received so many compliments on the quality and presentation of the food (the duck and truffled puy lentils with smashed root vegetables is still my favourite!)

Dave and the team left the place absolutely spotless, so no need for us to go over the kitchen or equipment.

I would thoroughly recommend FieldtoFork for any events that you have. Dave’s knowledge, passion and creativity made the wedding breakfast, and the whole day, really memorable! Thank you again!

Thanks again for your help Dave – I think I need to organise a party to have some more of the food!

Hi Dave

It was all amazing, every single guest was totally bowled over by your food, and by the service of the team. You were all so fantastic, constantly smiling, nothing was too much trouble and I have never eaten better food at any other gathering ever. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, you were a massive part of what was a truly wonderful, perfect day.

One love,

Carla & Steve xx

Hi Dave
We would like to say thank you for producing such amazing food. We really enjoyed it and people have commented how much they liked the food.
From the beginning through to the end, working with you was hassle free – thank you for all your help.
Kind Regards,

Rachel and David ( The oak barn hittisleigh )

To David and Staff a massive “thank you”, albeit belatedly.

Our Daughter’s TIPI wedding reception in Devon last June was a huge success, due in no small measure to your organisational skills and attention to detail before, during and after the event. Your display of calm professionalism and ability to cope with anything whilst catering under changing ‘field kitchen’ conditions was a triumph and a credit to you. The presentation and quality of the food was excellent borne out by the highly complimentary comments of all our guests many of whom were French and well versed in quality cuisine. Our only regret is that we live so far away from Devon that we cannot avail ourselves of your services more frequently.

Thoroughly recommended!

When we had all decided on a totally vegetarian wedding feast we were then trying to find a caterer who would not only provide us with an imaginative, varied and spectacular menu but also one who would be flexible enough to allow us to do some of the catering ourselves (a bit of a tradition to do canapés and deserts amongst friends and families)

David was amazingly accommodating, professional, friendly and innovative from the first point of contact. He suggested some wonderful menu choices, where other caterers had been very obviously inexperienced (and i must say a little uninterested) in catering for a totally vegetarian event.

After having decided on a delicious sounding menu he offered to come and cook samples for us but sadly due to many commitments on our part this dis not happen, but we were so taken with his obvious enthusiasm and abilities that we felt this was nit even necessary. He visited before with a member of his team to finalise details. He was charming, flexible and a pleasure to work with, as were all his team on the day and before.

They did many tasks over and above what we had expected on the day of the wedding and they encountered some problems (a very soggy field which meant their vehicle got stuck trying to drive up to the marquee and a generator that wouldn’t work at the last minute) that they dealt with in their stride and with calmness and good humour, BUT the crowning glory was the food itself. What an amazing feast it was! It was delicious, plentiful and an absolute pleasure to look at. Even the most dedicated carnivores were bowled over by the tastes, textures, quality and quantity of food that was placed on the tables. It all had the WOW factor and people are still talking about it 6 weeks afterwards.

So, a big thank you for all your hard work and enthusiasm David (and of course your lovely team) and we can honestly say that our dealings with you and your food was an absolute pleasure. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and we would use you in the future without hesitation should the need arise.

Thank you so much for making the wedding so special.

Hi David and the Field to Fork Team,

Just a quick note to say thank you so so much for all your help last weekend. Although the whole day seems to be a blur still, when I asked Nick for some feedback he said “bloody awesome, couldn’t have changed a thing!” which believe me is a massive compliment! Honestly you were all so friendly, organised and professional I wish I could get married to do it all again!

The BBQ was amazing with everyone saying what a refreshing change from normal boring wedding food it was and everyone being full up. Those Pavlova’s were awesome too. I think there may be more photos of the desserts than of us floating around! I wish I could have eaten more!

The whole day went so smoothly without a hitch.

Thank you so much on behalf of all of our guests

David and his staff were extremely professional and helpful, both before the wedding day and during the day itself.

They dealt with a number of dietary requirements very well indeed and the food was unbelievable, no matter which dish you had selected. We would thoroughly recommend Field to Fork for any occasion or event, and would certainly use them again without hesitation.

Thank you for making our day memorable and extremely tasty!.”

Dear Dave,

We have had so many wonderful letters and compliments about our very successful party last Sunday. The food exceeded our expectations,” everything looked and tasted perfect. I know you and your team worked very hard to make the day such a success, and Tom and I would like to thank you all for everything you did. There is no doubt your business will continue to be successful.

To Dave

The catering services you provided was excellent, not only was the food top notch but you and your staff did an amazing job on the day and we received some very complimentary feedback from clients and staff who visited our marquee. It was certainly the best catering we have ever had at the show so please pass on our thanks to you and your team.

ALL we have heard is how “AMAZING” “outstanding” “deeeelicious” the food was. The list of compliments goes on, but we get the gist that everyone at that wedding was bowled over by the food.

One of my parent’s friends said it was the best food she has ever tasted at a wedding – and in her late 60’s she’s been to a fair few!

Tony and I just want to say thanks so much to you and your fantastic team for looking after us and our guests so well.

The staff were so helpful and I thought the food was outstanding… such fantastic flavours and I don’t think I’ve ever seen puddings completely finished by pretty much everyone in the marquee!

Victoria and Tony
