Testimonials

 “The food was excellent both in appearance and in quality and exceeded all our expectations; the service provided by all your staff was expertly carried out, courteous and superbly well organised. Our guests were very impressed. Our experience with your company has been excellent from the first contact to the last; in arranging appointments, choosing menus, phoning your office with queries, invoicing and in the event itself. Once again, many many thanks”.
Lin & Jim Reynolds

“A MASSIVE THANK YOU for your amazing service on THE DAY. The food was delicious and the service you provided was faultless. We’ve had so many compliments re: the Main meal & Evening Buffet. A special thank you from me personally for enduring those endless long emails and special requests. You dealt with everything professionally and with such detail on the day. We will not hesitate to use Cloverdale in the future”.
Tessa McLaughlin

“I was at the ball on Friday night and felt that I should tell just how good the food was. Both the quality and the service of it were great. It was no mean feat serving around 700 people but it was great that our main courses were all served together and all the vegetables came out so soon after. I thought the starter and the pudding was lovely as well. I always go to the ball and to be honest don’t expect the food to be up to much. Last year’s was dreadful, so wasn’t expecting wonders this year but was really impressed by it all”.
Ann Laws

“What a truly professional job you and your team did for Beccie’s wedding on Saturday. We do thank you most sincerely for your enormous contribution in making the day such a huge success. It was fairytale in fact and Beckie and Ted rang from the airport to say it was literally the best day of their lives and the wedding of their dreams – who could ask for more”.
Jennie Wills

“I just wanted to email you to say a big thank you for the 150th Civic Anniversary.  It all went brilliantly and we have had lots of nice comments about the evening. Comments such as: “a first class banquet”, “food was wonderful”, “best food we have had at the Borough in 20 years”. Your team did an excellent job, they were very attentive and professional. Roger was superb.  He organised everything beautifully and it all ran smoothly”

“That you could provide such an amazing feast in marquee conditions quite baffled a number of people but the whole event was a great success and the food absolutely delicious. Do please also pass on our sincere thanks to the two members of staff who stayed with us during the evening – they were brilliant. We look forward very much to having you with us again for our Medieval Banquet at the end of September”.
Margaret Burgon

“Cloverdale’s contribution to our client entertainment event was everything we hoped for. In addition to a superb menu and the great service we all felt that your presence lent a very professional touch to the whole affair”.
Andy Lawrence, Operations Director

“A big thank you for all your hard work on our wedding spread over many months.  I would like to specifically thank Ruth, Zoe, Roger and Amy and of course you Glenda for your leadership, advice and thoughtful words.  You and your team are all amazing!”
Liz and Alan Nicholls

“I think that almost every guest asked me who the wonderful caterers were. Every word of praise I heard was well deserved, tasty canapés, tender meat (the pork coming in for special praise) perfectly cooked vegetables and a lovely gateau. The waitresses were quiet and unobtrusive and I want to special praise to your Toastmaster. He informed and advised the Bride and Groom throughout the afternoon and carried out his duties in a pleasantly informal yet professional manner”.
Stephanie Reynolds

“Thank you for supplying the breakfasts for the VIP event at this year’s Youth Games at such short notice. The food and the service was excellent and I have had positive feedback from all involved”.
Nicky Milford, Active Sports Development Officer

“The meal for our reception was absolutely delicious, piping hot and beautifully presented. The service was excellent too and I would particularly like to thank Roger for keeping us on track and ensuring everything ran smoothly. I’ve had so many compliments about the meal, the evening buffet and on the ‘cheese cake’ which worked so well with our menu and looked absolutely magnificent. Everything really exceeded our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you for quality, good value and service”.
Nick & Sue Underwood

“Thank you very much for the superb buffet you provided for our recent conference. Your staff were exceedingly helpful and extremely hard working. They were very professional and managed the arrangements for the day, to ensure everything ran smoothly. I especially appreciated their flexibility as I changed the timings”.
Nicola Thomas, Corporate Communications Manager

“To say that the staff were excellent is an understatement, they were BRILLIANT. The food was fantastic, both the Main meal and the evening buffet were of outstanding quality. In fact many of the guests said it was by far the best food they had ever had at a wedding reception”.
Terry Breedon

“Bruce and I thought the whole event was so well planned and so very enjoyable and the food was so delicious, that returns to the buffet table were inevitable”
Bruce and Fiona

“You may recall me mentioning that one of my friends is a GM in a hotel in Glasgow, where among her guests, have been many stars including Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston etc. Well she told me that your catering was wonderful …Praise indeed from her – believe me!”.
June Melrose

“The finger buffet arrived in pristine condition at the allotted time and with very helpful staff. Most importantly, the quality and quantity of the buffet was superb and not what we thought we would get for your very reasonable cost per head. I noted that the cakes were homemade and not the usual partially frozen shop-type ones”.
Anne Trietline, Personal Assistant to the National Customer Services Manager

“When people asked where we found the caterers for our wedding I had to be truthful and say it was with a pencil and a copy of Yellow Pages. However, we really couldn’t have chosen better. It was such a help to have one organisation capable of overseeing everything and you did it so well”.
Joanne & Trevor Triance

“The food itself, the service and the presentation were all first-class and many of our guests made a point of saying how impressed they were. During the setting up phase it was a pleasure to have two of your staff working so professionally alongside us, and as the event progressed, a pleasure also to enjoy the help and co-operation of your full team. It was a highly successful and enjoyable day”.
Neil Wooler

“We have found the food to be of a constantly high standard, served by competent and professional staff. The food that they serve is always well presented and well received. We anticipate a long and happy partnership with Cloverdale and on the basis of our experience would highly recommend them for any catering requirements”.
Colin Stanley, Managing Director

“Our guests were so appreciative of not only the taste, but the layout and appearance of the feast. Everything had the quality of the very best home made food, yet at the same time was so professionally and expertly prepared and presented”.
Ola Francombe

“We had all been looking forward to the evening and were certainly not disappointed. The food was delicious, the quality and quantity superb. The environment and atmosphere was ideal. The question on everyone’s lips is when can we do it again?”.
Diane Northwood

“Just to say thank you so much for the lovely food that you provided for our Police open day. Jan was a star and seemed to be completely unflappable despite the rather unorthodox venue. We girls all remarked on how much Policemen eat and just when we thought they had finished they started again!! Obviously testimony to your delicious food”.
Shelia Nicholson, PA to Sales & Marketing Director

“I wish to thank you and your staff for the professional way you handled the Civic Banquet last Saturday. The smartly dressed waitresses; the neatly laid tables; the hot well cooked food and of course that wonderful soup, all helped to set the tone for a successful evening”.
M.T.Lowden, Chairman

Dorothy Knibbs, Secretary

“We would like to express our grateful thanks for the wonderful and comprehensive buffet you provided for our celebration. Everyone who attended expressed their highest praise for both the quality and quantity of fare set out. The (difficult) family members requiring special diets were supremely impressed by the meals you set out for them”.
