Testimonials & Reviews
“Dear Val This is just a quick thank you on behalf of my wife Jaqueline and me to all at Poppy Caterers for the superb drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception which you provided for Danny and Madeline's wedding. Everyone who attended praised your staff for their professionalism as well as for the absolutely excellent food which was served throughout the day. Particular praise was given for the fish and chip canapes - unfortunately by the time I realised that they had been served everybody had eaten them! - and the roast beef. One of our guests was a master butcher who was one of the carvers and his only complaint was that if he had known what was in store for him he would have brought his own carving knife! Both Jaqueline and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anybody looking for a caterer.”
