“The food was, simply, just outstanding; we had many “foodie” friends there with us and I lost count of the number of people who said it was genuinely the best wedding food they had ever tasted. That, coupled with the attentive yet completely discreet service, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect feast. I will heartily recommend you to any and all prospective bride and grooms in the area looking for the best caterers around. ”

“The food was outstanding as was the service. Everybody enjoyed the food and have said its been one of the best weddings they have ever been too. We can’t thank Tom and his team enough for making our day so special, there really are no words to describe how much they contributed to our day and made it run without a hitch.
If you want a wedding with top class, professional caterers then look no further!! A massive thank you. ”

Holdens Catering Team

Hi Tom,


Thanks so much for providing the amazing food at our wedding last Saturday – it was absolutely delicious, and we had so many guests come up to us to compliment the food. You and your team did a fantastic job. If there is anywhere that I can post a review for Holdens let me know as I’d be more than happy to do so.

Hi Tom

Thank you again for the wonderful food and service that you and your team provided us at the weekend. Everyone I saw on the day and since commented on how much they enjoyed the menu, the cooking and the very attentive staff. We can’t thank you enough – it was such a highlight

Tom – I just wanted to say again how impressed we were with that first class meal you produced, in field kitchen conditions. You exceeded our expectations (which were high!) with all 3 courses delicious, superbly cooked, and pleasantly unpretentious in presentation. 

And your team did a great clearing up job.

Just a quick note to thank your team for a fantastic hen do meal at Tynrhyd on Saturday. Tom and the staff cooked us a delicious memorable meal and looked after us really well. Everything was cooked to perfection and all the meals were exquisite. The bride to be and all hens thoroughly enjoyed Holdens Catering experience. 

Many thanks, Nerys


Utterly brilliant, that’s what the food and catering was at Longlands. Thank you so much for all your efforts and helping make it such a special day. Please pass on our thanks to all your team. We know some of our friends have you doing their wedding in the summer too, and they were chuffed to bits and looking forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes, Cas and Mike


Tom! I am only just getting round to thanking everyone! I really don’t know where to start… The food was absolutely incredible!! Everyone has been asking us who did it! You and the team went to a huuuuugggeeee effort, and we are forever grateful! You made our day!! Thank you so so much for everything!


Hello Tom. Just wanted to say how fabulous all the food was on Saturday  – we and all the guests enjoyed everything. The beef was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious I had so many complementary comments. Thank you for catering for all our ‘fussy’ eaters – Bethan especially appreciated it.

Your staff were also so professional and friendly – a special thank you to the lady ‘behind the bar’ – nothing was too much trouble – what a fabulous lady.

Many many thanks. Helen & Emyr


Pete and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Tom, Alice and the team we had the most amazing wedding day and the food was fantastic! Everyone loved the lamb and it was great fun carving it at the table…
Thank you again

Jo & Pete, Wedding June 2016

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for the catering last weekend!!
The food was AMAZING, the canapes were very well received and the lamb, turkey and salmon enjoyed by everyone.
Plenty to go round, Tom and Gareth were brilliant as well. Gareth was very accommodating and I never had to ask for anything more than once, he and the front of house team were excellent.
The day as a whole was everything we wished for with the food being a big part of that.
Thank you again and best wishes for the future with the business.

Erin & Ade, Manorbier Wedding June 2016

We hired Holdens catering after going to a wedding that was being catered by them. We were really impressed by how different the bbq style was.
From the beginning Tom was really relaxed and put us at ease. There was a huge array of things to choose from and Tom guided us through this on one of his two visits to our home. Tom also offered suggestions of things that we hadn’t thought of which was very helpful.
From the minute the marquee went up the Holdens team were buzzing about and really took control of organising such a large part of the day. Gareth in particular was fantastic and he immediately made you feel and ease and that nothing was too much trouble.
The food was outstanding as was the service. Everybody enjoyed the food and have said its been one of the best weddings they have ever been too. We can’t thank Tom and his team enough for making our day so special, there really are no words to describe how much they contributed to our day and made it run without a hitch.
If you want a wedding with top class, professional caterers then look no further!!
A massive thank you,

Joe & Leanne, Pembroke Wedding May 2106

The meal you prepared for our wedding was absolutely fabulous and that is an understatement. The comments received from ALL guests were “fantastic”, “best steak we have ever had” , “unbelievable food” “best ever” and that is just few of the comments received. The canapes went down very well and just kept coming and coming – only wish that I had been able to sample them as the guests stated that they were very tasty . It was also nice to have piping hot food delivered to every table and this was also noted by many of the guests. In fact I have had comments from people who were not at the wedding that we had fabulous steaks at the reception. The food and service provided by yourself and your staff was really impressive and I can guarantee you will have few new customers in Lampeter this year. And of course to end a perfect day we all watched the rugby match and the result was the icing on the cake for most of us – perfect end to a perfect day.
The food at the reception was very important to me as I wanted to prove to everyone that this wedding would be as good and if not better than a wedding at a hotel and thank you for helping me achieve this and most of my guests were completely amazed with Waunifor and the food and many commented that this was their best day our for years, so thank you and thank you so much for helping me to achieve this.
You will be seeing us at Lampeter this winter , hopefully (pending babysitters) on a number of occasions. thank you
