“Wonderful Experience”

“I had the most wonderful experience with Holdens catering!! With my new husband being a chef, the food was incredibly important to us for our Wedding day! We were very specific about our menu and the way we wanted it to look . Tom was more than accommodating and 100% delivered our vision. and on the day the food was absolutely fantastic!! 140 plates delivered, with amazing presentation, absolutely delicious, and the bbq and paella cooking outside added to the amazing atmosphere. Very personable experience from a wonderful team. Thank you.”

“Tom & Team were absolutely fantastic.”

Tom and team were absolutely fantastic! We wanted something informal but stunning at the same time and it was absolutely delivered. The food was just delicious, so many people commented on it, even people that weren’t able to make the wedding mentioned to us they’d heard how good the food was! The team were fantastic in getting everything ready for us, serving the Pimm’s and canapés, the dinner, the evening nibbles, all of it. Seamless service, delicious food and lovely people.”

“Faultless”

Holdens catering catered for my wedding on the 7th of July 2018. I cannot recommend Tom and his team enough. The service, the food and the whole experience with Tom was faultless.  Tom listened to my ideas and created a menu that reflected my husband and I and the food that we eat. BBQ, paella and pizza to name a few! He had great ideas and advice which I would definitely recommend that people listen to, and the day went perfectly. The 5 stars we have given Holden’s catering truly reflects our experience with Tom and his team. Thank you guys!

‘Just want to say a massive thank you for a brilliantly run day from start to finish. You did everything you said you would from start to finish plus a little more and I’m so glad I choose you over the others. Everyone told me how amazing the food was and how brilliant your front of house staff were. As a chef I know for a fact it wasn’t easy pulling off that menu out of the “kitchen” you had but you did and absolutely no complaints from me. You catered for 3 head chefs that day that all work in really good places that do quality food. I showed them all the kitchen later on and they both agreed you were in the **** before you started!! So a huge well done. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again

Hi Both, just an email to say a massive thank you for Saturday, we can’t explain how pleased we were with all of the food and the overall professionalism you and your staff showed. People cannot stop saying how incredible the food was, from the starter to the curry at night. My aunt has asked for your details as her son gets married in 2021. Special thanks to the lady who was head of house on Saturday, so sorry can’t remember her name! She was just amazing, helping with every little detail which we felt went above and beyond. We appreciated it so much. So thank you all so much, we loved every second. the food was exactly us and our guests have continued to comment on the exceptional standard. Wish we could do it all again! Thank you so much! “

Thank you so much to you both and your lovely staff for the amazing food you did for our wedding and Sunday party. We’ve had so many comments about the food and I don’t know how you managed to cook such amazing tasty food for over 200 guests. It was exactly like we had in our tasting with you back in January. You’ve been so lovely to deal with over the last year and we cannot recommend you enough. Thank you so much, you took a massive weight off our shoulders knowing how professional you are and we knew everything would be perfect with Holden’s catering.

Hello Tom and Nicole, Just a quick note to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding an excellent event to you and all your staff. The food was amazing and all staff very polite, helpful and accommodating. We had a great time and heard nothing but great comments with regards to the quality of the food! The evening food also went down a storm – we wish we had eaten more of it! Thank you so much, we will surely come to visit in Cardigan soon.

Hi Nicole, Hi Tom. Apologies for the absolutely horrendous delay in sending this – after the excitement of the wedding and honey moon, normal life sort of gets in the way. A massive thank you from both Kat and I for all of you did for our wedding back in June, everything that you were involved in was absolutely fantastic and the day would not been the same without you. Nicole – having you organising everything on the day really put our mind at rest. Everything ran so smoothly, and your staff were incredible. When we booked you as caterers we didn’t realise we were getting such a full service. And Tom – we have had so many people comment on how incredible the food was, and how it really made the wedding unique. So many people have been raving about the lamb in particular. I know we are slightly biased, but we still think our food was the best of any wedding we have been to over the last few years. And thank you both for being so flexible in the run up to the wedding! Of course, we are more than happy to write a public review (if similar) just let us know.
