    Thank you so much for making my party on Saturday so enjoyable. I have had so many compliments about the food and service-the coeliac was particularly impressed that their particular needs had been taken into account. We were also incredibly impressed at the way in which you prepared and cleared up after the event. I would have no hesitation in recommending your food highly!

    Just wanted to say a huge ‘thank-you’ again for catering for us yesterday.

    Lots of people commented on how delicious the food was-especially the lamb-and also how friendly the service was.

    Just to say a big thank you to Dave and James for the amazing food at my husband’s 40th birthday party on 23 April.  I said I wanted food that was different and was keen to avoid the usual curled up sandwiches and sausage rolls.  Aniseed promised something different and they delivered much more – the food brought an air of sophistication to the evening.  The food was served from 7pm throughout the whole evening and the quality and presentation of the food was second to none!  It will be a birthday that my husband and I and our son Joe, as well as our friends and family, will never forget…..we are still receiving wonderful comments raving about the food almost a month later!   Thanks Dave and Colin, your catering business is a real gem!

    The food and service you and the team provided were brilliant. You really looked after us and it seemed nothing was too much trouble.  The chocolate brownie was my personal highlight! I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or use Aniseed’s services again for a similar event.

    Good Morning Sian – First up, a big thank you for your teams work on our behalf yesterday, everything was seamless and the food was very good also. Secondly, I left the cheque for the food with one of your colleagues yesterday, can you confirm that you received it so that I can let our cashier know.

    Many thanks once again from everyone at the charity.

    Many many thanks to you and your team for making my husband’s 50th birthday lunch so  special. I thought the food was absolutely delicious; the ceviche of smoked haddock starter probably stealing the show for me, and the waitresses did a fantastic job given the awful weather conditions.

    So thanks again, it was a pleasure to work with you and I will certainly be recommending you in the future.

    A huge thank you to the team at Aniseed Catering! They delivered the most fantastic Afternoon Tea to us.  They were so lovely and flexible so it couldn’t have been easier to plan.  The food was fabulous – literally the best roast beef sandwiches I’ve ever eaten – and beautifully presented.  And the vintage china just made it perfect.  We loved it, so much so in fact, we’ve already booked them again for our party next year!

    We were so pleased we chose Aniseed to cater out daughter’s Christening party! All our guests commented on how good the food was, and the service was warm and professional from first contact to the actual day. Sian and Colin offered a really flexible service and adjusted menu options to ensure everything was just right for us and our guests. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them again!
