Thanks so much for everything, the food was great! So good in fact that there was hardly any left by the time I got round to having any!
We had some lovely comments about the food. One guest said it was better than the three course meal they had at a previous wedding and another guest said it was the best vegan chicken they've ever had.
I just wanted to say thanks for the amazing food that you delivered on Saturday!! Not only was it great value but the quality was amazing. Everyone that came to the party commented on the food and I had no hesitation in telling them where i got it from.
Happy to recommend you to family and friends and use you for our next party/event!!!
Have a lovely day!!
Thurling Catering supplied a buffet for our wedding anniversary. The buffet was well presented with an assortment of meat and fish together with large bowls of salad, coleslaw etc.
Delicious. We also had an assortment of deserts which were very popular with our guests. A lovely evening and no worries about catering. Everything worked out really well. We would recommend his services.

Roy and his partner provided a dinner party for 8 of us while we were on a family holiday. He arrived promptly and he provided a splendid three course meal. The meal was delicious, with plenty to go round. The service was excellent, - unobtrusive yet attentive. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and the evening went perfectly, with everyone having a great time.
Thank you very much for supplying our weekend buffets. They were fantastic, very tasty, and very well presented, and made it very easy for us to feed everyone in the short space of time we had in between races. They were very well received, and we had lots of compliments on how good they were. Especially from the British Cycling officials, which is rare!

Thank you very much for today’s exec buffet. The Mayor commented on how good it was... and in fact so did a lot of people who saw it in the kitchen beforehand.
At least 3 people said ‘oh, savoury straws’ so you see they are still a favourite for some people !!!
Could you please let me know where you buy those mini flavoured macaroons. I’ve only ever seen them in France and I absolutely love them!
Thank you again Roy... great lunch!

The fact that we have continued to use the same caterer for over 4 years now, shows that good quality food and VFM are definately a winner. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and we are happy to recommend them.
I have used Thurling Catring for several of my family functions, my daughters christening, My wife's suprise Birthday party, but the one i will always be greatful to them for was my Wedding. They did a fantastic job!
Hi Roy, We would like to thank you for the lovely buffet you provided, it was enjoyed by everyone except myself and Jamie, we were far to engrossed in talking And dancing. We received lots of praise for the food and several people asked for your details, so we hope you get some business out of it. There was plenty to go round even though more people turned up than we expected. We had a fabulous evening. Thanks again for your excellent service.
Jamie And Joanne (Mr and Mrs wheeler)
We used Thurling Catering for my Mum's surprise 90th birthday party on Saturday 27th April 2013 and it was just what we had hoped for. It was excellent! They couldn't have been more helpful when they delivered the food. Will certainly recommend them!
Dear Roy and team
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a HUGE thank you to you all for making our event so very special! Alexandra had a fabulous night and loved the pizza!
All the food was superb and my idea of the fish and chips went down a treat, enhanced by the newspaper cartons! The chef and ladies in the kitchen were wonderful and I hope that they could see how much everyone was enjoying the gorgeous food. I really cannot stress enough how very grateful we are to you all and how impressed everyone was with the delicious food
Thank you and best wishes
We would like to say a big THANK YOU from all the boys and girls of the Beavers,Cubs and Scouts from the Gosport 7th Scouts.( all 70) Without your kindness and support we would not have been able to have our Christmas party. The food was first class (the kids loved your roast potatoes) and every plate was empty.
I hope you and all your staff have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
