To Davina (and team)

We are writing to thank you for doing the catering for our wedding day back in July. From the moment we met you at your house – we knew you were the one. Your food was absolutely beautiful, and you understood exactly what we wanted: light, summery and colourful! We had SO many comments on just how delicious your food was, and sitting down to eat was probably the best part of the day ... Read More

"Nothing was too much trouble"

To Davina and all her fabulous team,

I wanted to thank you all for helping to make our wedding so special. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble, even the last-minute list fort extra crockery and glasses and the panicked request for tablecloths. We have already recommended you and will carry on doing so in the future.

Many Thanks

Trish and Nick Glassbrook

"We very much valued your personal touch"

Dear Davina,
Thank you for providing a first-class service. In planning, presentation, and delicious catering, your experience and professionalism are very apparent. We appreciated your attention to detail, including the beautiful vintage table dressing, so fitting for our occasion and venue, our wonderful father’s funeral. Your food was delicious and well prepared, clearly using your recipes, and it looked both inviting and delicious. It was especially nice to be able to talk through foods all the family ... Read More

"It was a seamless service"


This is a short note to thank you for the excellent catering. It was a seamless service, enjoyed and much appreciated by all. Everyone seemed anxious to ensure they went away with any surplus for the journey back to Wales. It was very nice to hear your recollections of my mother, Olwen. Anne tells me you were school friends with her sister Jane Purnell.

"Your willingness to go that extra mile was most appreciated"


Thank you so much for providing the fabulous buffet for Michael’s funeral. Your willingness to go that extra mile was most appreciated – from the scones and clotted cream reflecting Michaels Cornish roots to the gluten-free bread you baked specially for one of us. Many people remarked on the quality and class of the food on offer. We would not hesitate to use your service again.

"Your colleagues went about your business quietly and professionally"

Dear Davina,
My wife Carolina and I attended the funeral of the late Amy Helm at Wrea Green Parish Church on 31-12-2014.
Although a sad occasion, the funeral celebrated the long life of a very friendly, caring lady with an eye for detail:
I understand Amy had left instructions to engage you to cater for her funeral.

A very wise decision that turned out to be your attention to detail in providing high-quality ... Read More

Dear Davina,

We just wanted to write a little note to say thank you so much for all the lovely food and all your help the other week.

Your offer to help make the room look so nice and to make everyone feel so welcome was appreciated and would have been just what mum would have wanted – thank you so much. We also had lots of compliments about the lovely food and enjoyed early leftovers!Read More

"Thank you so much for the delicious food"

Dear Davina,

Thank you so much for the delicious food you made for our party. Everyone was commenting on how much they had enjoyed it, and I think there were quite a few second helpings; your assistants were so efficient too, and the kitchen looked perfect when you left.
Davina, you helped to make our day perfect.
Love and thanks

Hi Davina,

We just wanted to say how wonderful Saturday was.
Anita, first and foremost, had a wonderful time. You were amazing. Wonderful direction, great staff, gorgeous food, attentive service- we couldn’t have asked for more.

Thanks ever so much for making this such a great night. Our guests constantly complimented the wonderful service and how lovely the food was. Thanks ever so much again.

"A superb meal, cooked to perfection,"

Dear Davina,

Very many thanks for a superb meal, cooked to perfection and served in style. We appreciate all your efforts and organisation in producing such a memorable feast. It was enjoyed by all, and the compliments followed (at the same pace as the wine!) and, what a treat did not have to wash up afterwards. Mike and I both felt that we had been to a party. Please thank Amy for her important contribution to the ... Read More

"The service provided was second to none"

We booked a holiday cottage in Ribchester for family and friends to celebrate our golden wedding. I tried a few caterers, but prices were horrendous, or they couldn’t provide what I wanted. However, Davina from High Class Caterers contacted me after seeing my details which I’d left on one of the numerous catering sites, and she was great. The service she provided was second to none. She suggested a great menu for us and gave us a ... Read More

"The food and service were all absolutely amazing"

Dear Davina,

You came quietly into my home while I got ready for the party. You served up a fabulous meal, and when you left, I couldn’t even tell you had been. Thank you so much for making my birthday such a special celebration. The food and service were all absolutely amazing and truly enjoyed by all.


"The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented"

Dear Davina,

Thank you so much for a really lovely evening last weekend. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. It was so lovely for all of us to be able to sit back, relax and leave everything in your very capable hands. Please can you also pass on our thanks to Jack, Amy, and Chloe. We all thought they were great too, and very professional. Thanks again, Davina.

Love from

Sara and all the Walker family

Dear Davina,

Just a note to thank you very much for the buffet you provided us with on Jacks christening day.

We had a wonderful day with friends and family, and it was topped off with delicious food! So many commented how good the food was with second and even third helpings!

"They couldn’t believe that everything was homemade"

Davina at High Class Caterers,

Last Saturday, we hosted a vintage afternoon tea to celebrate our parents diamond wedding anniversary. It was a fabulous occasion made all the more special by Davina’s wonderful catering. The food was outstanding, everybody commented on how fresh and delicious every mouthful was! They couldn’t believe that everything was homemade, it was truly amazing! We also hired all the crockery from Davina, and if I say so myself, the tables ... Read More

"Davina’s food is beautiful to look at and beautiful to taste!"

Davina’s food is beautiful to look at and beautiful to taste! She catered for a party of 85 guests for me, and the variety of her buffet and desserts was impressive. Particular favourites were the chicken liver pate, the mozzarella and tomatoes on sticks and the chocolate pots. Homemade, tasty and plentiful.

"Nothing is too much trouble for her"

I cannot speak highly enough of Davina at High Class Caterers. For the last two years, she has produced high quality, tasty, home-cooked meals for my very elderly parents who had special dietary requirements. She sourced specialist ingredients and used high-quality meat to make hearty meals on her wonderful AGA cooker. She delivers them to their front door and stocks them in their freezer, all with a wonderful, friendly smile. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Thank you ... Read More

Good morning Davina,

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful afternoon tea on Friday. Our American visitors loved it and commented that it was the best lunch they had ever had and really appreciated the truly English theme.
