What our clients are saying about us

We put so much into each event and personal chef experience it's great to get the feedback we do. Here is some of what our customers have said about us.

Always excellent food, wine and hospitality. I would recommend very highly.

Sandy Reid

Simon and his team have catered for Mum's 80th and also for my son's wedding. The food was gorgeous but the most notable strength was in the way that the team remained calm and cheerful. They helped us to relax and enjoy the occasions with family and friends.

Richard Olphin

Amazing night for hubbies 40th! Thanks Simon :-)

Deborah Joy

Our wedding guests were blown away with our food. It was out of this world. This man knows how to make food sexy. Alison and the rest of the staff were incredible, faultless! Amazing and talented team. Thank you so much.

Harry Kirkham

Great canapés for today's drinks party. Alison and staff were faultless. Very professional but incredibly friendly and chatty at the same time. And a massive selection of canapés produced so quantity and quality.

Rebecca Healey

What a fantastic day - Simon and his team looked after us so well today. The food was absolutely incredible and very imaginative whilst the service from Hayley and Rosie superb - I would thoroughly recommend them if you want to ensure your guests have a great day. Thank you Simon - we will be booking you again soon.

I have worked with Simon on a few weddings now as I am a professional Compere/Dj/Entertainer and can honestly say his food is simply the best I've experienced. The visual side of things is fantastic and the taste is of another level. Pure perfectionist in what he does and he has a great team too. When I get married - Simon will be the first I call.

Simon is one of the best chefs you can find! Totally professional, super good fun, approachable. Superlative work ethic. He has made me look fabulous with my wedding clients lots of times. His team is also amazing. His food, beautifully presented, even to suit the theme, a taste sensation and served immaculately. If you want a menu that beats the rest book Simon! Xxx also his service where he cooks for you at your house is nothing short of outstanding. I know! One of my clients invited me for dinner cooked by Simon., the whole evening was brilliant.

Hi Simon, Alison & Hannah,
Just a quick note to thank you all so much for your top quality service both at our HQ and the Birmingham gallery yesterday. This was such an important event for DeMontfort and therefore essential that our clients and Artists were impressed! Yet again, we received SUCH good feedback from our guests. Your creative presentation to fit our theme was amazing and I’ve no doubt that people will be talking about it for a long while! It’s great that you adapted to the varying (challenging!) space we provided you with. You’re also a hoot to have around which makes for a really pleasant and stress free environment. I’m really looking forward to working with you again on my next event extravaganza!!

Hello Simon
Hope all is well with you. I just wanted to thank you very much for a very successful evening recently. Everyone agreed that the meal was exceptionally good.

Hi Simon,

I thought I'd drop you a line to thank you all on behalf of us both for making our dinner party for 17 old friends such a resounding success!

Everyone was enormously impressed with the quality and flavour of each and every dish (including the yummy canapés) and I was frankly stunned at the calm efficiency with which you seamlessly kept us fed and watered (well, wined) all night, leaving us to spend the whole evening concentrating on our guests rather than shouting at one another in the kitchen!

To cap it all, you left the kitchen in a cleaner and tidier state than you found it (excellent washing-up skills!) An all-round triumph!

Many thanks again to you all,
How we enjoyed meeting you and being entertained and fed so magnificently by you. You really were the best unexpected element of that surprise holiday ... You really were the most tremendous discovery ..and I do not know how you kept your cool and kept producing feast after feast from that kitchen, or our kitchen.. or Charles and Louisa' kitchen.. or even the outside kitchen at one point?! it will remain a wonder to me!!

Thank you so much for the lovely catering at our PNLD Criminal Law Conference on Wednesday 15th October Police Mutual, Lichfield, it was delightful. The selection, quality and choice was superb!

We were fortunate enough to have Simon Smith cook prepared meals for us while we were staying up at Tixall Gatehouse in Staffordshire. They were fantastic. He could not have done more to make sure that we had the menu we wanted and needless to say the food was delicious. We would recommend him to anybody and have already done so!
