British BBQ Batlle Winner 2016


A gargantuan THANK YOU for last night. The service you provided was incredible.  All the staff were polite helpful and proactive, attending to the tiniest detail with enormous professionalism and good grace.

Dani you managed the whole event on the night masterfully, premempting any issues before they arose.  The occasional mishaps, such as a broken glass or guest who needed escorting, you were there on the scene the moment it occurred.  You judged the evening impeccably and advised so well when you felt things needed shifting slightly from the schedule to allow for late guests, or when the guests were getting itchy to get get up and dance.  You could feel the atmosphere in the room and knew exactly what was needed at any given moment.  Really I was incredibly impressed thank you.  You were spot on about clearing tables at the beginning of the last song, I was concerned it may be disruptive, but you knew the guests wanted to dance and move around and had I known you would clear so deftly, I wouldn’t have had a second thought about when to clear!

The Photo booth was genius and the pictures amazing! Thank you!

Choc Fountains were cute incredibly stacked and tasted fab.

I know there had been tinkering by guests with place names!  One person was moved  from one end of the room to the other!! You coped magnificently with this and it must have been very difficult for you

The chicken had many compliments on my table, it was lovely.

So a huge thank you  for the totally amazing service!

Warmest regards,

We just want to say a BIG thank you to Food Events for making our wedding reception such a massive success, our guests are still paying compliments re the food, the staff and the way we were all looked after! what a wonderful service you provided!

 We are currently away on our honeymoon in Greece and we arrive back on Monday 12th, so as soon as we are back, Emmanuel is running to the bank so he can make the transfer in order to pay the outstanding invoice.

 Thank you once again and i know we will be seeing you again in the future for other functions! (people have already asked for your details from the wedding).

 Best wishes,

Hi Simon (and everyone!),

We basically can’t thank you enough for Saturday, it was really just perfect!

Don’t really know where to start – the food was gorgeous and everyone said they loved it (and so did we, obviously!); the service was absolutely amazing (everyone was so lovely), and the Amadeus just looked incredible – I can’t tell you how excited we were when we first walked in and saw it!

Again, thank you so much,

Sarah & Jake

Thank you so so so so so much for all your hard work!!!!  We had a truly fantastic day and can’t thank you enough for the role you played in making that happen.  So many people have commented on how incredible the food was – as one of my guests said it was 5 star restaurant quality food and the best anyone has ever had at a wedding!  Your staff were all so lovely and helpful and I cannot believe how smoothly everything ran – especially the clearing of the lower barn which I was particularly worried about!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and wish you all the best for 2016,

Lucy and Rob

Thank you Simon, and also always a pleasure from our side working with you and the team.

The event was a great success and no issues whatsoever from your side, the team were professional and all ran smoothly so please thank Peter and the guys.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and NY, I hope you get a nice break and we look forward to working with you more next year.

Best wishes,




Thank you so much for all your hard work on Sunday night in making  Max’s Barmitzvah party a night to remember.

 The food was delicious. We have had excellent feedback and the kids definitely enjoyed it. I particularly liked the brownie tower which added a sense of fun and sparkle to the event.

 Thank you for styling and controlling the whole party you kept the whole night running smoothly. The gaming tables were just brilliant and I am afraid we have given 13 year old boys a taste for gambling! In hindsight I wish I had used Food Events for everything. You and Simon handled the party with integrity, care and an excellent attention to detail.

 Thanks again to you and all the team for making Max’s night so special.

 Let’s keep in touch

 Kind regards

Hi Simon and Dani

Just to say you did an AMAZING job, the food was unbeatable in every way.

We had the best day and that your personal contribution to that was fantastic.

Dear Simon

Thank you so much for your help and wonderful food on Saturday night.

Everyone had a really great time. The food and all your staff were fantastic.

Kind regards



Hi Simon,

Thank you, your chefs, the staff and the lead Peter so much for all the efforts in making our event so fabulous.

Our engagement party was fantastic down to every little detail. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the food is getting great reviews by our guests.

Perfect engagement party!

Once again very many thanks.

Hi Simon, Dani and Peter,

What can we say other than, wow it was just wonderful. From the very moment we decided to go with Food Events we knew we were in good hands.

The planning has been thought through meticulously and Peter ran the day perfectly. The lovely waiting staff were friendly and could not do enough for our guests. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests would not stop telling us how much they had enjoyed their meals.

Everything was done seamlessly and there was no stress what so ever for us on the day, which allowed us to enjoy every single second.

So to everyone at Food Events who made our day so special, thank you! The day would not have turned out the way it did with out Food Events.

We are heading off on our honeymoon tomorrow and cant wait!

All the best

Hi Guys

Hope you are both well and New Year’s was relaxing!

Just wanted to drop you a note to say that the 27th was a great day. So many people have complemented the food with many more also saying that it was the best wedding food they have ever had!!!

So thank you so much!! Please do send us over an invoice for the final bit when you get a moment and I will settle it straight away!

Thanks again, speak soon

Thanks Simon.  I am always looking for opportunities to do pop-up events with my many restaurant clients and, of course, you would be at the top of the list of recommended organizers without a doubt.

Thank you for your great service to our clients.




Dear Dani,

Well we did it! Thank you all so much for your amazing work in putting together such a lovely party for Marcus 21st on Saturday.

We knew we were making the right decision to use Food Events for a second time from the start.

Your attention to detail, great communication and support throughout the process was fantastic.

You really have been a pleasure to work with.

It was as if the cavalry had arrived when the team turned up on Saturday. You all instantly swung into action and produced a stunning bar with drinks beautifully laid out, tables that looked gorgeous as well as tying up all the names and people for each table – a real headache!

We particularly appreciate Anne’s calm, efficient and totally reassuring presence….she’s a star! I don’t think I ever want to hold a party without her by my side! She was just what we needed to control a group of happy, rather exuberant 20 somethings who were having a great time.

Only one more son to go…we’ll be in touch in a few years! But this time we want to have some of our friends there too as a FE party is just too good to miss.

Thank you and all the staff. Please pass on our regards to Simon – we really have appreciated the professionalism of the company as a whole.

Very best wishes,

Benedict, Elizabeth and Marcus Kelly

James, Dominic and I want to say a huge, huge HUGE THANK YOU for everything your team did at our wedding!!! We had the most AMAZING day and everyone said how much they loved the food and how well organised everything was. Our friends with the difficult dietary requirements and the vegetarians, whose food options were put together at the last minute, said they were so well taken care of with their food and they especially loved it and told us so on the day – so please thank the chefs from us and everyone involved on the 16th August.

Beyond the food, a special thank you has to go to you Simon for the huge amount of support you provided in helping get the final wedding arrangements together, both calmly and reassuringly! I honestly don’t think we could’ve stayed as settled as we did up to the wedding day – had the reception as perfect as it was, or enjoyed the day and evening to the same extent, without your help. We will be telling ALL our friends who get engaged how AMAZING your team was and how we totally recommend you.

Michelle Crofts & James The Amadeus - Wedding

I have been meaning to email you all day to say thank you so much for all the hard work that Food Events put into our event! I have heard nothing but compliments from our guests about the quality of the food and your team was so helpful – having their experience was invaluable.

The event itself went extremely smoothly and we have far surpassed our fundraising expectations!

Many thanks once again – I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use your company for any of our future events.

Katie & Polly EF Education First

We were so impressed by the team and especially by Ann, who was a cornerstone in the proceedings and did a fantastic job keeping us calm, managing the staff and getting 107 twenty year olds to sit down promptly for supper and leave on time as well! The team were all so friendly and helpful – for example, taking over putting up the balloons, which had arrived very late, so that I could go and get changed.

We are very grateful to George who took over the bar at the after party. He looked after the guests fantastically well without cramping their style and was friendly and yet authoritative which was just what the party needed.

Once again, thank you to Simon and all your staff for helping us give our son a fabulous and memorable 21st birthday party.

Elizabeth & Ben Proud parents

We truly can’t thank you all enough for everything you’ve done for us over the last couple of years of planning and on what really was the happiest day of our lives. Everyone – especially Simon, Ann, Katherine, Daniela and Steve – made the whole process such a joy and so, so easy.

Simon did the most amazing job with everything, from our first meeting to the big day itself and we could never have done any of it without him. Ann is like an events ninja, magically appearing wherever she’s needed and whipping everything into shape in a split second. And as for the chefs – well, the food was simply incredible and everyone said so.

Now we’re just looking for an excuse to hire you again! Vow renewal next year?
