I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team. The food was amazing, especially the cheesecakes! Everyone has been raving about the food, and so many people came to tell us that it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding. Also, many people commented on how attentive and helpful the waiting staff were.
Thank you so much for all your help with making the day run smoothly. Dave and I had a fantastic day, and you played a big part in that.
We received so many fabulous comments from our guests, probably summed up through my dad: “simply, the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding, and at nearly 80 years old, I’ve been to a few”.
When we first met, you were terrific at helping us choose our menu, with insight into practicalities and suggestions we wouldn’t have thought of.
Your attention to detail, and professionalism throughout, left us feeling supremely confident in choice, no small thing given the massive part of the wedding meal plays in the day.
On the day, your team were super-efficient, friendly, helpful and well turned out! All the meals arrived, with the correct guest options, table by table and piping hot.
The handmade treats you created for our precious woofers, Dodger and Daisy, were VERY well received and such a thoughtful gesture; thank you.
In a nutshell, Davina, you have been just perfect; we cannot thank you enough and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone needing bespoke, outstanding catering!
P.S. the “posh” fishcake warps for supper were scrummy too!!
With warmest regards and much gratitude.

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 for us. It was just perfect, and we will recommend you to everyone!
All our love,
Amy and Grant (The Armstrong’s)
Davina and Team
We want to say a huge thank you for doing the catering for our wedding. The food was fantastic, and everyone commented how amazing it was. We loved the way you put so much care and attention into everything and how supportive you were guiding us in the direction we took when we didn’t have a clue about things. On the day your staff were wonderful and were happy and smiley. I will defo recommend your services to friends in the area.
All our love
We want to write to personally say the BIGGEST thank you for being part of the fabric of our best day ever.
It was truly the most magical time, and we very much believe that you were so incredibly integral to making this happen.
From the very outset following making contact, we felt reassured and warmed by your professionalism and coordination – one less wedding-based worry!
Your thoughts and ideas shape our food choices, but you always made sure everything felt so personal to us.
The responses from our guests have been amazing, and many we’ve spoken to since have commented on how stunning both the canapes and meal were.
It’s hard to believe you provide services to others! At no point along the way did we feel that we were a job- with everything being done with such care. We would love to all do it all again tomorrow. Thank you so much.
Mr and Mrs B
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.
Trish and Nick Glassbrook
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 love and associate with and come up with ideas with you. We had wonderful comments on the buffet and the service on the day. It helped us relax and focus on our purpose. We very much valued your personal touch through planning, care and sensitivity, making a very difficult day so much easier for us. Our dad would have loved it. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone for any occasion. Davina, thank you very much to you and your lovely staff.
Heather, Elsa, Gillian
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.
Robby and dad had discussed possible catering arrangements before his death, and both had wanted you to provide the catering. You did them proud.
Thank you again for all your efforts.
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.
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 food, together with excellent service, is indeed a credit to you.
It must be said you and your colleagues went about your business quietly and professionally.
Just a note to thank you for the lovely food on Thursday. Also, for the expert service. A fitting afternoon tea celebration for my mum’s life.
Thank you again
Love and prayer,
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!
With love and many thanks
Howard and Helen
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
Dee and Sam
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.
Paul and Anita
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 success of the evening.
Ros and Mike
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 choice for the starter and dessert courses. The food was lovely everyone said they enjoyed their meal, and the kitchen was left clean and tidy. We would have no hesitation in recommending High Class Caterers.

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.
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.
Sara and all the Walker family
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!
Thank you again for helping make Jacks christening day so special.
John, Sarah, Grace and Jack
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 looked stunning! We can’t thank Davina or praise her professional manner enough, nothing was too much trouble, and I shall be calling on her in 27 years when we celebrate our diamond wedding!! Hopefully, I will be calling on her before then, and I would recommend anybody to do the same, fabulous!!!
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.
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 so much, Davina.
Many thanks for catering our event yesterday.
We had some great feedback from guests attending.
Thanks for helping to make the event successful.
Mark Whittle, North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce
On behalf of all the Wareing family, I am writing to thank you most sincerely for the magnificent and truly deliciously catering service you provided throughout the day at our open day on Saturday.
It was a challenge that would have appeared daunting to even the most experienced chef and caterer, as the proposed number of guests throughout the day at varying times between 1 pm and 9 pm was far from certain due to the lack of confirmed invite acceptances, which left us no choice to guestimate the numbers attending to somewhere around 1000 throughout the day.
It was a challenge that you are your staff rose magnificently with your calm and professional but friendly manner, you put our minds at ease and created the most amazing all-day buffet selection with the most tempting and delicious filling full sandwiches of every imaginable variety. Handmade sausage rolls, oh so moreish pork pies, and so many more handmade and ever so fresh savoury delights and that was just a taster before tempting and irresistible treats from your baking and cake heaven selection move over Mary Berry!!
Then to add to the mix, you provided a mouth watering hog roast and BBQ with all the trimmings and a very entertaining but oh so professional BBQ chef! I am exhausted just thinking about all effort that went into creating every plateful, but you seemed to just keep smiling and take it all in your stride; it was simply amazing, and as a family, we cannot thank you enough.
Over the open day, we had hundreds of guests complimenting and enquiring about your catering, and we had many more since and all those comments are so well deserved, and we are sure that you will get many more events to cater for from the strength of them.
May we also say that if you have potential clients who would like a personal recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact us as we would be more than delighted to do so, and we look forward to using your services again soon.
Sally Wareing, Wareing of Wrea Green
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.
Kim Regan, Bowker BMW
On behalf of us all at Word Horse Welfare, may I thank you for all your hard work in preparing the catering for two very important days for our charity at Penny Farm. We have been very pleased with the feedback, particularly the food on offer, which is such an important part of the day giving back to our supporters.
Many thanks and best wishes
John Blake, World Horse Welfare
I wish to thank you and your colleagues for the excellence of all aspects of your service last week. It was truly a pleasure working with you. The food was greatly appreciated by our guests and your assistance throughout the week was quite simply perfect.
You could not have done more on all fronts, barbecue, presenting the delicious dishes to our friends and tidying up at the end of the evening, so congratulations on the excellence of your services.
Richard Wax, St Andrews Golf Festival
Davina has catered for an important fund-raising event which 50 people attended. The food was delicious; it arrived on time, was no hassle, and received much praise. I have also attended a number of other events that Davina has catered for. Without exception, the food has been of top quality. Davina is totally reliable; you will not be disappointed.
