What an amazing service you ran for us over my weekend of celebrations. You are so professional. Spending time at the outset to work out my requirements for two different types of events over the weekend. Firstly a formal birthday sit down dinner on the first night and secondly a less formal home "pop in" afternoon tea party on the following day. The food which you provided for both occasions was delicious, beautifully presented and well received by us and our guests. Your waitresses worked so well together preparing for the events and later serving and looking after the guests with a pleasant manner. It was also appreciated that you ensured that our home was left neat and tidy before leaving after each event.
Some of our guests were so impressed that they too want to use Clare's Cuisine and we have given them contact details. That in itself must be a true compliment of the service you provide and which we too shall use again when the next suitable occasion arises.
Thank you once again for the professional service you provided in making the celebratory weekend so special leaving us to enjoy the occasion.

A very big thank you on behalf of my sister and myself for the fabulous buffet for our Father’s Funeral. Your assistance with the planning and catering ideas for vegan and gluten free people was so helpful. The food on the day was amazing and the service was excellent making everything run seamlessly. It was certain one less thing to think about on such a difficult the day.
Thank you again and kind regards

Clare is a total godsend.
She takes all the stress and hassle out of entertaining, be it large party, or small intimate event. Her food and canapés are presented and served with style and efficiency; plus they are simply mouth wateringly delicious. So many events serve up dull, bland and skimpy canapés, never so Clare! You can completely relax in the knowledge your guests will always be looked after and fed really well. Her staff are a complete delight: courteous friendly, smart and always professional; as is Clare. She is flexible, adaptable, good fun and always the first person we call. Simply brilliant.

Many thanks for catering for my 70th birthday party in Pratts Bottom village hall on Saturday 20th February 2016. The hall looked beautiful when I arrived; white linen tablecloths; places set with cutlery and glasses; my bird-cage table decorations illuminated the room; cameras and photo albums all in place as I wanted. You and your staff were most attentive and I felt an immediate sense of excitement and happiness that all had been done to make the occasion special. All my guests (over 60 people) congratulated us on the high standard of the canapés and buffet-the food was delicious. We supplied the drink-but it was set up in a bar arrangement which worked very well. I am very pleased that I chose Clare's Cuisine-I would certainly recommend your special catering service to one and all.
Thank you Clare and staff

I have recently attended a birthday party in the Village Hall catered by Clare's cuisine. The food was delicious with tasty canapes,a choice of mains and mouthwatering desserts. The waitresses were professional and attentive without being intrusive. I have used Clare's Cuisine many times myself when organising dinners for 70+ people when Clare has liaised with me and made really helpful suggestions about the menu. On the evenings everything has gone very smoothly and remarks from our guests afterwards have been very positive with regard to Clare's food and organisation. I can certainly recommend Clare and her team.
Excellent Catering from Clare and her team.
I tasted Clare’s cuisine at an friends party and was very impressed, so had no hesitation at using her for my Xmas gathering in December 2015. Her canapes were the best I have tasted ,especially the beef and Yorkshire puddings. There was plenty of food, and everything tasted delicious. Clare was excellent in advising me on food choice. Her staff were very helpful on the day, and delightful to have in one’s home. Clare was fully involved at the event. I had loads of compliments from my guests regarding the food. I would highly recommend her and her lovely team.
We want to thank you so much for the wonderful buffet you provided for us at our Mothers Funeral. The food was delicious, the waitress's were kind and competent, all of which made a very sad day so much easier to bear. So many people asked us for your contact details... This must be the best testimonial you could receive.
Many many thanks

Wedding at home in Chelsfield 25 th May 2014
120 guests for the wedding breakfast
180 guests for the evening.
On behalf of Anna Jamie Steve and myself we would like to say a big thank you. We were so impressed with your management of the day, and your staff. It was great to have your insight and experience to help us plan the timings for the day. On the wedding day we had the confidence to know that you were totally in control of all the food and drinks to be served and did not have to worry about a thing!!! You made everything run like clock work coping with a few difficulties that may easily have phased anyone else. Our guests commented on how polite and helpful all the staff were, the food was great.... Indeed surpassed our hopes and expectations! We have and will highly recommend Clare's Cuisine and will not forget our wonderful day... I am particularly grateful as I had a fabulous day and felt free just to enjoy it all! Thank you again Clare ....
With very best wishes
This is the second time my husband and I have used Clare’s Cuisine for a luncheon for 50 + guests in a marquee. Her menus give a great choice and she can accommodate many dietary requests.
Clare and her staff are very professional, attentive and adaptable and we would have no hesitation in using her services again. Our luncheon was made most enjoyable knowing the food and service would be of a very high standard.

Whenever I have thought of caterers, I have really thought of very sensible lunch parties. But Clare and her team made my 40th cocktail party so much fun. I had no stress of thinking of how many canapés to prepare, how many cocktail ingredients I required, Clare professionally discussed my ideas with me and created the perfect environment for my guests. The canapés were delicious and the cocktails legendary. Her team of bar staff and waitresses seamlessly looked after us all. I'm not sure I'd host another party without her!

Clare has asked me if I would provide a reference for her and I am delighted to do so.
Clare has been doing catering for our company on a regular basis for the past three years. During that time she has consistently provided delicious home made food and I would highly recommend her. The presentation and quality of the food are second to none.
