“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”.

There is so much I could say about this company, absolutely amazing company and the staff are lovely.
My journey over the last few years to get to our wedding day has been very hard and stressful at times due to postponing and covid and every time we had a hiccup cloverdale/Sam were absolutely amazing!
Customer service has always been brilliant! Sam you are such a lovely and friendly person!
Sorry for all the stress our wedding has brought you the last few years!
Thanks so much for the most wonderful buffet!

I ordered a child’s platter for my son’s 4th birthday to enjoy in lockdown with his brother, he was so excited seeing his platter come to the door. Cannot fault the service , really friendly and very quick to respond. The food was amazing!!! Perfect food for kids to enjoy (and a sneaky steal of cake from a parent). Thankyou so much for making my sons birthday in lockdown enjoyable. Will definitely be using again for future platters

“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”.

“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”.

“We had an Afternoon Tea for two today and it was lovely. Great variety of food and great value for money. Will definitely use again. Delicious food”.

“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

“Super fabulous food, easy to order by Facebook message and fast reply. We all sat on the sofa like beached whales, thanks so much”    

Rachel Red Birch

“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”.
