Justine catered for my husband's funeral on 26th September 2019 in a most kind and sensitive way.
The canapes were superb and exactly as I had wanted. They were presented in a most attractive way on block slate tiles and served by delightful waitresses who mingled "invisibly" making sure everyone was fed.
The delicious food was complimented by everyone for taste, appearance and choice of savoury, vegetarian and sweet. The roast beef Yorkshires and the mini strawberry scones were particularly popular.
I would highly recommend Justine and her team to anybody who wanted an extremely efficient, calm and very professional service.
I wouldn't hesitate to use Menu Catering again.
With many thanks for taking away a big worry on a very difficult day.

Thank you and your lovely team for providing such tasty food at my mother's funeral. Many of our guests said how well they were looked after by your delightful staff, constantly refilling with food and drink in a discreet non intrusive way. The food you supplied was presented well and was amazingly tasty. It was so plentiful and what was left over you parcelled up and we had later at home! The vegetarians, vegans were pleased with their food and one guest who had multiple life threatening allergies who is allergic to soya, all dairy, nuts and salads and carries a epipen was particularly challenging. You confidently took on board his needs cooked all his food separately and sourced safe ingredients. He was so thrilled to eat such lovely tasty food. We were so pleased by your professional service. I'm trying to think of occasions in the future where we can invite you back!
Thank you Justine and your amazing team.

We were recommended to Justine and her team by a fellow caterer who used to cater at the venue we were using. She was happy to pass on Justine's details and told us she would never normally make a recommendation, but some of her waitresses were now working for Justine and she had received amazing feedback from them. We were very grateful for her recommendation. Justine catered for the reception after my Mum's funeral and we were delighted by the service from her and all of her team. They took control of everything so I didn't have to worry and were so wonderfully kind and supportive. As for the food, it was perfect for the occasion. An extensive and generous buffet that was truly delicious. We had a few gluten frees and vegetarians that said they hadn't been so well catered for in a long time. Everything was so professional and just oozed home made and quality. We had savoury and sweet and it was all spot on. The cakes were so light and fluffy and the carrot cake was gluten free so everyone was happy. My personal favourite was the Coffee and Walnut! Thank you Justine and your lovely ladies for looking after us on such a senstive occasion. I would not hesitate in recommending you in the future.

I just wanted to thank-you again for doing the catering for Simon and Jonalyns wedding.
The food was really delicious and it couldn’t have gone better. We also really enjoyed ourselves having the pre-wedding meal with my sister and her family.
The tables were really well laid out and looked beautiful.
Your staff were smart and seamlessly served up the food - getting all the different dietary requirements right and also all the drinks.
The canapés were a good size and went down well. With all of the delicious food we felt quite full before the desserts, but you were able to accommodate a last minute change of plan when we decided to have the speeches at that point before the desserts were served.
I really appreciated your professionalism and felt that the whole thing was in very good hands.
Alison Rugg, Wedding Reception, September 2018
We just want to say an almighty thank you to you and the team for what, in our eyes, was a perfect day. The food was great, the staff were incredibly efficient, polite and thoroughly on the ball. You had a lot of compliments on the day.
We want to thank you for helping us in leading up to the big day, we had such a good time, and we would have no qualms about recommending your services at all.
We are still buzzing from it, so success all round!
Mr and Mrs Cockell, Ripley Arts Centre, August 2018
We really enjoyed the afternoon, thank you, and so did our guests: and you and your team were the subject of many compliments! Thank you once again for all your hard work, for the delicious food, and for your helpful, friendly and professional service, which made our party such a special occasion for all of us.

Thank you so much to you and your team for helping to make Mum's birthday celebration so successful. Your food and service were truly excellent and it was a pleasure to have you there. We are particularly grateful for the extra effort you made for our special dietary requirement guests.

Thank you for your most excellent food and arrangements. The food was delicious and your ladies were charming, efficient and helpful. We hope that we have good reason to ask you to help again one day.

Thank you so much for a really delicious spread and excellent service. Just what we wanted and it worked a treat. I am still basking in the afterglow of a most enjoyable day. All the very best and thanks again to you and your lovely assistant.

All the very best and thanks again to you and your lovely assistant.
Thank you for providing the catering service and as perhaps you saw the party was a 100% success and my mother absolutely delighted with it. We were very lucky with the weather so that people could be out in the garden which made a difference.I think the food you provided was spot on so well done and also Maria did an excellent job serving it.
Andrew Sloan, Chislehurst, June 2017
Everyone thought the service was very friendly and efficient. Your staff were really attentive and extremely helpful. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends for any similar functions.
David and Vera Thomas, Ripley Arts Centre, September 2016
Thank you very much; not only a lovely lunch yesterday but also a very nice left over lunch today. Thank you so much for providing the catering for William's Christening. The event was really successful and everyone praised the food and the service. I couldn't be more appreciative of Menu Catering
Rachel Barton, Chislehurst, August 2016
Overall and on reflection I think there was a very happy engagement with me the client (who was worried!) and I found the service very good and the food excellent. (I need not have worried). Our guests enjoyed the food and were pleasantly surprised that we had a sit down tea party. A number commented that the sandwiches were delicious and some said they were pleased not to have the usual sausage rolls!! We had plenty of food and I made sure all had a food box to take home. A great idea! The champagne was enjoyed with the delicious birthday cake. Thank you for your efforts on our behalf. My Mother still talks about her 100th birthday party.
Carole Gray, Chislehurst, July 2016
We would be happy to recommend Justine and Menu Catering for any event. A recent light lunchtime reception for a family event with 35 guests was smoothly and professionally handled, with a delightful and inventive menu and equally delightful staff. We also thought the bill represented very good value. This was the second time we have used Menu Catering’s services, and in our opinion they go from strength to strength. It was a relief to place this taxing job in their reliable hands at a time when we were run off our feet!
