​From the off John was a delight to work with he was full of enthusiasm and completely understood what we wanted for our special day. We had afternoon tea followed by hog roast. John catered for all of our guests needs with the vegan option being a complete hit! The food was beautifully presented and tasted even better. We cannot recommend a better caterer, John takes so much pride in his food, yet delivers his services so effortlessly in keeping with our relaxed wedding vibe. Thank you for making our special day truly delicious ❤

We have just completed our fourth annual BBQ for The Anglo European Chiropractic College on the Friday 6th July. West Country Catering provided a fantastic meal for the staff & family summer evening BBQ. We had a Hog Roast with amazing crackling, and a delicious barbeque, the brownie as a dessert was a triumph!.
Many thanks for another lovely BBQ! See you again soon.

​West Country Catering appreciation
John at West Country Catering provided a Lamb Roast for our anniversary garden party on 30th June 2018.
Right from the initial contact we had a “good vibe” due to John’s professionalism and friendliness. His attention to detail beforehand and advice really helped to deliver a memorable meal.
The Lamb Roast was cooked on site in an immaculate roaster and both John and Alex prepared really tasty salads while it was cooking and provided artisan breads to complement the lamb.
All of our 50 guests commented on how much they liked seeing the lamb cooked on site and most importantly enjoyed the taste. We would have no hesitation in recommending John and WCC if you are considering a similar event
BTW John also recommended Laura to help with drinks etc. and she was invaluable in helping us as guests arrived and throughout the meal service.

We used West Country Catering as the main caterers for our 60th Birthday party. 
We opted for a Hog Roast with all the trimmings and it was a great success.
As you can imagine, to organise a party to cater for up to 150 people can be quite daunting , but John was extremely helpful and took all the hassle away from us from the start, dealing direct with the venue and organising everything to a very high standard. 
The food was excellent, plentiful and presented very professionally, I would not hesitate in using West Country Catering again and would highly recommend them.
Thank you John and your Team for making our party so memorable.

Dear John
Thank you so much to you and your team for everything you did in terms of the catering for our recent 50th birthday party Medieval Banquet celebration at the stunning Commandery in Ansty. It was an absolute pleasure working with you on this exciting project and planning all the themed food for the evening from the delicious canopies to the even more delicious spit roast pork/lamb and chicken and everything that goes with it… the crackling was superb too! Everyone that attended the party was ‘wowed’ by the whole set up.. The Commandery looked amazing and we’ve had many compliments on the food from everyone that attended. It was also wonderful that you and your team were willing to enter into the spirit of the party by dressing up in theme .. Its all in the details and you were certainly willing to go above and beyond to think of these. It was great working with someone that I knew I could trust to get on with it and your staff on the night were efficient, polite and smiley… what more can you ask! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I shall certainly be recommending West Country Catering to others and hope to work with you again soon on any future events.
Best wishes

Hi John

Thank you SO much for the most amazing BBQ - it was more delicious than we could have hoped for and you and the team ran the show seamlessly. Can't thank you enough, will certainly be recommending your services. 

Love Ruby and Ben ( June 2017)

​​Hi John
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, it has been a mad few months!  I'm sure you have been busy too!
We did have a lovely day thank you, even the sun managed to make an appearance, and we really enjoyed our honeymoon.
The food was excellent, everyone enjoyed it and there was more than enough for everyone, even people with large appetites!  
Your staff were so friendly, helpful and professional, we couldn't have asked for more!  Your friendly phone calls put me at ease and I felt that you knew exactly what were were requiring without much prompting from me.  
It was nice to know such a big part of our wedding was in very capable hands and we did not have to worry one bit!
But it is a shame I didn't have time to sample more canapes! 
Thank you for your kind words, we will certainly be recommending you in the future!
Kind regards

​My firm recently hired  West Country Catering for our annual staff summer event in  June 2016 and we were delighted with the BBQ and hog roast they provided. The hog roast was delicious with plenty of home made coleslaw, apple sauce and stuffing. The crackling was incredible and every portion was generous. The BBQ included huge juicy burgers, sausages, chicken and vegetarian options, all excellent!
The grand finale for us was an enormous chocolate fountain which was surrounded by mountains of strawberries, bananas, pineapple, fudge, marshmallows and jelly babies. It looked and tasted spectacular!
The staff were friendly and very efficient, making the event run smoothly throughout.
Everyone over-indulged and still the food didn't run out, an absolutely wonderful evening. I would have no hesitation in recommending  West Country Catering to anyone holding an event that they want to be truly special.
Kind regards

Dear John

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday night, your team were just awesome. Lots of Love Mr and Mrs Baird :) September 2014

Dear John, I just wanted to email to say thank you for catering for our Wedding on the 28th June.  The hog roast was delicious and perfect for our West Country themed wedding and reception.  So many of our guests commented on how good the food was.  You have been so responsive and helpful throughout – from the moment we first contacted to you to the wedding itself.  Your friendly manner was very reassuring, as was your confidence and experience in event catering.  The service from your staff during the champagne reception and dinner was excellent and really helped the day to run smoothly.  I am really grateful for all your advice and will be sure to recommend West Country Catering to anyone I know in the area looking for caterers for their big day.  Thank you for helping to make our day so special. Best wishes,Tabi and Steve July 2014

We hired West Country Catering for a recent outdoor summer party. John and the team read the tone of the event perfectly, and provided a professional yet relaxed service to our guests. The food was fantastic, and plentiful! I'd have no hesitation in recommending their service, and hope to be able to work with them again on another occasion.

Dear John and Alison,

A note to thank you for all of your efforts and a wonderful outcome.

Your staff did a terrific job and although the weather was not the best it didn’t seem to matter.

The last stragglers went to bed at 02.30 on Sunday morning.

The food was delicious from Canapé through Pork to Eton Mess. First class.

Thanks from Shirley, Georgina, Edward and me, Mike.

If we are asked or get the opportunity you will get our recommendation.

Hi John

Thank you for presiding over such a fantastic wedding day, it all seemed to go very smoothly out front, and we have received lots of very positive comments about the food.

 Liz and I had an amazing day, and we were so pleased to be able to leave things in your capable hands and not worry.

Both Liz and I would love to recommend you to our friends for any kind of catering occasion, and I’m sure we’ll be looking to speak to again at key milestone parties in the future.

Thanks again John to you Alison and the team, for helping to make our day so special.
