To Marvelous Lucie, Ian, Paul and the rest of Team Hansons,

The day went so wonderfully, and much of that was due to your hard work. Everyone absolutely loved the food, as did we (but we knew that already!).

We count ourselves very fortunate to have found you, and you did everything we asked of you. But actually, you did way much more than that.

And thank you for your kind words! (And the card!)

All the very best,

James and Annabel

Hi,

Thank you so much for providing the buffet on Sunday. The delivery was very efficient, which we appreciated when we were busy preparing for the arrival of guests. There was plenty of food to go round, and some left over, which is always a good sign that everyone has eaten sufficient. Every dish was delicious, especially the cheesecake!

We will certainly recommend you to friends, and will be happy to use you again on another occasion (although at the moment I’m done with entertaining!)

Thank you again,

Hi Ellie,

I have popped into work for an hour today and was directed to the wonderful spread that was laid on for lunch. We have some very happy learners and there was plenty so I could join the for lunch. Delicious.

If you would like to include some business cards or leaflets with your next delivery we would be very happy to pass them on to learners with our recommendation.

Dear Ian and Team

I would just like to thank you for the beautiful spread you provided for us yesterday. The family were very pleased with the day, and to come into the hall after the memorial service to a lovely display of very appetizing food was the best finish for them. I thank you too for doing me proud as it was all on my shoulder that the afternoon went well. As I am so called head of the church catering it was really nice not to have had to get it all done our selves.
We didn’t have too much left but what there was we were able to cover over and take to one or two people that were unable to come because they are elderly.

Best wishes for the coming months and thank you again.

Kind regards

Hi Sarah,

We just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did for us on our wedding day!
All through the planning you’ve been such a great source of advice, taking so much of the stress away but I’m sure you could tell we were still very nervous about how the day itself would go.
We needn’t have worried – everything was perfect! You made the venue look lovely, your staff were awesome and the food was spot on (at least we knew that bit would be ok!)

Thank you so much for all your hard work – you really were the glue that held everything together.
We would recommend you unreservedly to anyone looking for a caterer.

Hi Sarah,

I just wanted to write you guys a testimonial to say how grateful we are for catering our wedding so well!

Testmonial Wedding buffetWe were both so impressed with everything, the staff, the wonderful food, the service and clearing away. Everything was perfect. Although I was very specific with what I wanted you and your team were so accommodating and seemed to take it all in and really made the whole day run so smoothly, without us even needing to prompt anyone things were done that needed to be. The staff were brilliant, always friendly and smiling. The food was delicious, we always imagined a cold food spread, a bit of a picnic, but it was so much more and really exceeded our expectations, every dish was so tasty and all our guests commented the same. The evening buffet also really was amazing! The hall had no kitchen and very little space, plus our ideas were a little unconventional but you adapted as necessary and were just great. I felt like I had asked you to do so much, from welcome drinks, to food prepping and serving (without any space to do it in!), to topping up drinks, cutting the cake, collapsing and rearranging tables, manning the tea table, dessert table AND the bar all night…the list is endless but you made it look easy… really showed your experience and that you cared so much about making the day a success. And it was all perfect! It really meant so much to be able to relax in your capable hands. So THANK YOU, we had the best day of our lives and you guys contributed to that by being so efficient, friendly and generally excellent at what you do. We will always be grateful for that.

I hoped we have have more photos of how amazing the food looked but can only find a couple so they are attached, if I find more I will forward them on as it really did all look so good!!

Thank you!

Hi Sarah

I just wanted to say thank you to the girls for a lovely meal last night, apart from the poor turnout it all went very well and those that did attend were very complementary regarding the food.  Please thank them from us.

I have bought back to the Education office, 1 large plate and some small plates, dishes and knives and forks.  These were taken into the hall by late comers.  I’m happy to keep them safe until you are able to pick up.  I think you are doing the next date which is 16th May (Saturday) Radiotherapy Day.

Can I book another day, not sure what we need yet, but it’s Friday 26th June.

Once again many thanks.

Tears of joy over this testimonial…

To: Hansons the Caterers
Hi Sarah,

I’ve just come across an email to you in my outbox which I drafted on the way to the airport the day after our wedding, and I can only assume it failed to send! So please forgive the incredibly late message of appreciation.

We couldn’t have been happier with your help with the planning; your expertise along with your relaxed manner and your incredible flexibility towards our needs made the whole process very straightforward as well as allowing us to have exactly what we wanted for our day.

Your team on the day were exceptional. They were polite, discreet and highly professional and we had rave reviews about the food from our guests.

Even Elizabeth (the owner of Chenies Manor) was impressed; when we saw her the next day she said that she “bases her opinion of caterers on how clean the kitchen is the following day” and your guys had left it spotless. We encouraged her to add you to their preferred suppliers list, which I hope she has done.

We won’t hesitate to recommend you to others in the future, and please feel free to use any of this for a testimonial.

Thank you once again.

Hi Sarah

We were so very pleased with the lunch that Hansons provided and the service the Karen provided also. You arrived spot on schedule, Karen worked out how to drive my mother’s geriatric kitchen and presented the spread beautifully by the time the guests returned from the funeral service. Karen sussed out the atmosphere spot-on to provide the right level of involved service throughout including not only the tidying away, but packing the left overs into our fridge. Exceeded expectation by a mile. The whole thing was a delight.

I should add that many of the guests remarked at the time on the excellence of the food and service; and I think it is fair to say that all the ‘thank you s” that we’ve received so far have extolled the lunch yet again.

Thank you again

We are grateful for the many spontaneous testimonials received from our clients:

“Dear Sarah and Team,
We have just returned from an all too short honeymoon in Cornwall, but wanted to contact you at the earliest possible opportunity to say thank you to you and your team at Hansons.
We considered sending a card – but wanted you to be able to ‘cut and paste’ if you required endorsements for your web-site.

Thank you Sarah for making ‘business’ so personal. Every step of the way we felt you understood how important the day was to us and how central the food would be to ensuring our guests felt they had received the best possible hospitality.

I am notorious for being sceptical on whether people/companies will deliver what they promise. You and the rest of your Hansons colleagues were so professional in every aspect of the day.

We have had so many compliments on the rolling barbecue at the wedding. The quality, variety and quantity of servings were all received to rave reviews from guests.
We wanted something ‘relaxed but elegant’ and this is something we definitely got from Hansons.

Thank you so very much for helping to make the day unforgettable.

Our very kindest regards.
Craig and Oonagh McGill”
