Testimonials & Reviews

Corporate Event

“Hi Val I have to say everything was absolutely perfect yesterday evening. Thank you to Enid and the team last night and to all at Poppy Caterers for looking after us so well once again. The hall and meeting room were set up perfectly, the canapĂ©s were delicious and the service fantastic. I have passed your invoice on to our Treasurer to arrange settlement immediately. I hope we’ll be back at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall again next year and look forward to being in touch then. Best regards, Kathryn Kathryn Cripwell Administrator Yorkshire Law Society Tel: 01904 449747 Mobile: 07768 683841 ”
