Never having used an external caterer for a family party before, we were a little anxious about doing it for the first time for a big Wedding Anniversary celebration on August Bank Holiday Monday. However, all our fears were very quickly allayed as Kevin and his team took over and got to work.
From my initial contact with Kevin via email, all through the planning process (I changed my mind numerous times re. the menu etc. – but changes were made immediately with good grace and humour), the home visit to recce our kitchen and facilities, and the smooth runnning of our party on the Big Day, Dine In Style were simply wonderful. The Fork Buffet was presented beautifully – and there was so much of it! It was all delicious too – our guests were extremely impressed – and so were we. Kevin and his team worked tirelessly all afternoon; meeting and greeting guests as they arrived, serving drinks, helping with the buffet and generally ensuring that everyone had all they needed and that our guests had a good time and were well looked after.
The other big advantage of course is that you don’t have to spend all night after the party clearing up! Our house and garden were spotless even before our last guests had gone home…. Dine In Style had completely cleared everything away and left the place in immaculate shape.
We would highly recommend Dine In Style. A thoroughly reliable, cheerful and extremely professional outifit…. we’ll know who to call on the next time we have a party!
Thanks very much for providing the catering for the event yesterday. The chicken went down very well with everybody, you’ll be pleased to hear.

Without exception every guest commented on the quality of the food (which was absolutely gorgeous!) and the service received from all your staff. They were incredibly attentive and professional. We would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever recommending you to anyone. Thanks again for putting up with all my neurosis and panic attacks (which let’s face it were pretty frequent!!) Thanks a million times for making our day so perfect”.

I’d be happy to give you some feedback-im sorry I had not done so sooner!
As far as we were concerned your service met our expectations wonderfully. We had great fun sampling the food and using Kevin’s expertise to guide us towards some fantastic food choices.
We were only discussing with my family this week, how good the food was at the wedding, and that none of us had tried anything as well presented and put together since.
We can’t think of anything that we would suggest to you to improve, as to us, choosing and using Dine in Style Catering was one of the easiest parts of organising our wedding, so once again, thank you very much!

I did send an email after the event, but have no problem in answering your specific questions:
Did our service meet you expectations?
Yes and above. Not only were the staff extremely friendly, professional, but they took over so that I didn’t have to do a thing ! Even opening the door, cleaning up broken glasses and tidying up all the old bottles and boxes before they went.
What was good? Food was excellent and so much left over. But so were the staff, see above.
The best thing about the whole night, was that I didn’t have to worry about a thing. All my guests were looked after which left me to socialise, and there was minimum clearing up to do – fantastic!
I would also like to comment that I have no hesitation in using your services again.
Many thanks Peter.
yes the service was really good, the girls did a wonderful job of keeping everyone’s glasses full, and serving the trays of food. The chef was very efficient and all the staff were very friendly. The chef improvised when the vegetarian lobby were calling for more and this was much appreciated. They cleaned up and left the kitchen spotless – everyone had a really good time – Many of our guests asked for your business cards so that is a positive for you
Thank-you so so much for providing an incredible service !! Your food went down a storm, your staff definitely went beyond the call of duty to offer help / support throughout the day, and everyone commented on how great the food was !!
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you, and we’re so thrilled we found you to cater for our wedding.
Thanks once again – was wonderful. If I can leave a review anywhere, please do let me know.
Kind regards, Jodi Shine
