“Thank you very much for making the reception a wonderful afternoon and evening. The food was lovely and at a reasonable price. Your organisation was superb and your staff very welcoming, helpful and hard-working. Everyone who attended had a great time, especially the bride and groom, who were very impressed. You proved to be flexible in all respects, incorporating changes and constantly-moving pre-reception meeting dates and times. I would not hesitate to recommend Clockhouse Catering to any future individual person or organisation wishing to hold a reception or function requiring catering.” Martin, Hitchin (2106)

“Thank you for your outstanding service provided to my family for our parents 50th Wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with your personal service and professional approach to this important family evening. You food was not only delicious, it was well presented and the exact right amount too. Everybody was happy and some of them took away your details for their own future events. We have had numerous family events over the years and have never consider caterers before but I wouldn’t hesitate to use or recommend your company to others for future occasions.” Nick, St Ippolyts (2016)

“Thank you so much to you and your team for helping to make Carla’s 18th party such a success. The food was fantastic and we received many complimentary comments from the guests. The ladies who ‘ran the show’ were delightful – efficient, friendly and extremely good at what they do. Please also pass on my thanks to them. From a customers perspective, I was delighted by the whole experience. From the initial meeting, where you quickly grasped the differing requirements (from party girl and parent) yet suggested a menu suitable to both. The inevitable changes to numbers that was facilitated without issue. The food, service and clear-up which ran with military precision. Thank you again. Linda, Hitchin (2016)

On behalf of the Partners and Staff of Wagstaffs can I take this opportunity to thank you and the girls for providing the food and service for our annual bash. As usual there were many compliments flying around and I am thrilled that you were able to get a further booking with Debenhams. As I recall you saying last year ‘word of mouth recommendations’ are the best advertising. We look forward to seeing you next year.” Alison, Stevenage (2017)

“Thank you so much for the lovely food you provided at our party. We gave you a challenge and you certainly rose to it. Please pass on our thanks to your staff for their support and professionalism.” Pam & Colin, Ickleford (2015)

“We used Clockhouse Catering for a surprise retirement do at a campsite in Henlow. Initial communication with Paul to establish a suitable menu and price range was excellent. All messages and needs were addressed straight away and dietary requirements were not an issue. We agreed a price and it was stuck too and there was no problems when the inevitable changes occurred. On the day Paul and his staff set up without an issue were friendly helpful and great with all our guests. The food was fantastic. There was plenty to go around and all the dietary issues were catered for without issue. His team then tidied away and were gone with no fuss. All guests were happy and we looked good !! In short, this was exactly what you need from a caterer, very happy to recommend and would definitely use again. Thanks very much to Paul and his team.” Andy, Henlow (2015)

“We couldn’t have been more delighted in how Alex and Jennifer’s wedding day went! Thank you so much for your part in this. The wedding breakfast picnic was excellent – we really appreciate the efforts you went to ensure everything was top quality…top faves (though everything was delicious) were the prize-winning Pork Pie with the added A & J topping, the made-by-you mackerel pate, eton mess and Prosecco jellies….FABULOUS. And then you followed all this up with an evening bbq. Thanks too to your ‘front-of-house’ Sarah and the rest of your team, they were lovely to deal with and very helpful and professional. All in all a HUGE SUCCESS….Thank you! Karen, Hexton (2015)

“I’m going to have to give Clockhouse 11 out of 10! Not only superb food and drink and flawless operation on the day, but we successfully reclaimed the surplus quantities, got them into our fridge at home for another couple of hours then delivered them to rehearsal where 130 hungry singers set upon them with surprised relish! More great comments on the quality all round. It would have been easy for you to be unhelpful about this but you took the extra trouble to help us out. I can’t tell you how pleased I was to see that you were already at the church before we got there. Success is usually all in the planning and preparation and there is no such thing as setting off too early. Geoffrey, Potters Bar (2015)

“We would like to extend our thanks to all at Clockhouse Catering for their service and high quality food provided at our Grand Opening Trade Event in January 2015. Our event was to celebrate our successful move into our new premises and was attended by 22 suppliers, Area Managers, National Account Managers, staff and customers, all of which enjoyed the “very special food” on offer. The service was professional and efficient from start to finish. They were able to offer advice on food choice and were able to work to the constraints placed on them by the limitation of our surroundings, we are a warehouse and the event was held amongst our racking. We were so impressed with the smoothness of the day and have since booked them again for our next event to be held in June this year. So once again thank you, it was a pleasure doing business and we would not hesitate to recommend Clockhouse Catering to anybody.” Harry, Brewers, Milton Keynes (2015)
