"Hello, Now the dust has settled and Harriet and Ed have jetted off on honeymoon, I wanted to say a massive thank you. The service from start to finish was exceptional and extremely professional. It was clear all your team were there to ensure the event ran without a hitch. Heather, who led the team, was amazing. She was so accommodating and clearly explained what would happen and when. Her “Master of Ceremony” skills were marvellous. And now for feedback on the food….. wow, the “Pie and Mash” was delicious. Many of our guests commented on the quality of the meat and it was a real hit. We cannot thank you enough for making our daughter’s wedding a day we will never forget Thank you to every single one of your team who made the day such a special occasion.

Rachel Hamlett

"Hi Briony, Just wanted to say a massive thank you at our wedding on Friday, all our guests said they have never had to refuse canapes at a wedding as normally there are never enough served! Our guests also said the steak was cooked to perfection and each table commented on how gorgeous the food was. We had our guests ranking the desserts in order and still have a debate going now about which one was the best! From start to finish you have been so professional and understanding of mine and Anthony's vision and wedding theme. Its the little touches that made it for us - you always asked us for canapes and evening food first and this was really appreciated. Every guests stated how the food was restaurant quality and we cannot thank you enough. Perfect in every way and so professional! Thank you much Mr & Mrs Hamlett."


"Hi Briony and the fab catering team at Barrett’s, My husband and I would like to send our huge thanks to you for your amazing service on our wedding day at Styal Lodge on Friday.

Franchesca Crolla

"Wow... What can i say!! Huge Credit to Mat, Michelle, Briony & the rest of the barretts team who Made our whole wedding experience perfect from start to finish. From when we 1st met mat at a food opening day he knew straight away the kind of things we wanted and would please all of our guests. We all sat down and discussed numerous ideas on what would work, but i knew what ever we chose it was going to be 110% satisfactory. I have been to quite a few weddings where i have been able to try various foods from barretts so it was good to see all the possibilities. From the food tasting- to on the actual day of our wedding- I don't know how but the food tasted even better, which went down a treat with all our guests. We had everyone saying" how it was the nicest food they have ever tasted". we had chefs, & other caterers amongst them so it was really nice to hear the comments. The staff were amazing and catered for everyones needs, & the service throughout was second to non. I can't wait until i plan another event where i can use barretts again. 1 word to describe my whole process- Outstanding..!! From the new Mr & Mrs Crolla xxx"

Laura & Dave

"Hello, Thank you so much for your email and final invoice. We would like to thank you for your part in our special day. From our very first meeting we felt that you really listened and understood our vision for the day. You then helped to ensure that the day ran smoothly and the food/presentation was better than we could ever have imagined. So many of our guests commented on the quality of the food and said that the BBQ and dessert station really added to the laid back informal feel of the day. Thank you so much, Laura and Dave"

Lucy Thornley

"Hi Briony just wanted to thank you and all the team for the amazing service you provided at my daughter's wedding on Saturday at Adlington Hall. Everything ran to perfection, the attention to detail was spot on and many of our guests have said how wonderful the food was. Catering for 88 day guests including children, babies, vegetarians, vegans and other dietary needs cannot be easy but everybody received individual treatment and all of the food was delicious. Unfortunately I never got to try the selection of sausage, fishfinger and bacon baps later in the evening but I am assured they were also lovely. Thank you once again for helping to make their day so fantastic. Lucy"

Gary & Julie

Please can you let Michelle know that she did the most amazing job in organising and ensuring the wedding ran smoothly, she took away all the stress from us both and made sure we enjoyed every moment. Massive thanks again Barrett’s!!!! Love Mr & Mrs Sidhu"

Laura McLean

"It's a month after our wedding and we are STILL getting countless comments from guests about just how incredible the food was! The phrase "best food we have ever had at a wedding" has been thrown around so many times, we've lost count! We can only take credit for booking Barrett's though and we are so thankful we did! From the moment we enquired with them it was just very relaxed and friendly and without any pressure! I'm a bit of a fuss pot when it comes to food and they never made me feel awkward; they simply catered my dishes! On the day, everything was outstanding! From the canapés (which people couldn't believe how much there was) to the meal itself and the staff, who couldn't have done more! Can't recommend Barrett's enough!"

Jessica Carson

"We had a choice of four caterers with our venue and went to an open day there to chat to all of them. It was the friendly nature of Barretts that appealed to us. They were incredibly helpful and interested and that was what swayed us. When we attended a tasting we knew we had made the right choice. All of the food was absolutely amazing and every discussion we had made us feel really reassured about their role on the day. They were happy to make announcements for us, to introduce the speeches, to make sure all dietary requirements were planned out and catered to without any interruption. We are so pleased that we chose them as our caterers and so were all our wedding guests who commented it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding."

Hannah & Ashley Ramrachia

"I was really worried about the catering for our wedding because I love great food and I always find food served en masse at large events to be at best average and at worst bland, tasteless and dry. Somehow Barretts achieved what can sometimes seem like the impossible and delivered restaurant quality food to over 200 guests with impeccable service. They also created a Mauritian curry for our evening food which our Mauritian guests wouldn't believe had been cooked by a non-Mauritian! I know that this would have taken a fair amount of time, research and practice but they still only charged us the same amount as for a traditional Indian curry from the menu. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for anyone looking for genuinely great food and service for any event."

Lee and Rachel

"Thank you so much to the Barretts team for the 5 star outstanding food and attentive staff that helped to make our Wedding day so perfect. A special thanks to Charlie who made sure everything ran smoothly on the day, nothing was too much trouble and we can't thank him enough. Thanks again, Rachel & Lee xx"

"Re- Chrissie and Bens' Wedding Dear Briony and team The catering for our daughters wedding was nothing short of outstanding. Since our first contact with you, we have been impressed by your professionalism and attention to detail. Nothing was ever too much trouble. You made sound suggestions about the menu, timings and quantities all of which were absolutely right. Your team on the day were quietly proficient, serving each person on one table at the same time. Our guests were thrilled with the menu choice and quality of all its elements. The Trio of desserts was a huge talking point. We would not hesitate to recommend your services. Many thanks for your part in making their wedding so perfect. Kind regards Alison Hayes (Bride's Mother)"

"Hi Briony, We just wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding. The food was absolutely amazing and all of our guests have been talking about it (each and every course of the Wedding Breakfast and the delicious kebabs at the evening!) so please pass our compliments on to the chefs for being great at what they do! All of your staff were so polite and professional when serving to the tables and ensured that all guests had what they'd requested with dietary needs. A special thank you for providing my very fussy brother with a cheese burger, he very much enjoyed it! The kebab station was a big hit during the evening and our guests enjoyed this different and very tasty style of food which they hadn't had at an evening reception before. We will certainly be recommending you to others as we couldn't fault your service. Thank you so much again for making our Wedding Breakfast so memorable and special and brining something different to our evening food - we loved it all! Wishing you and your team all the very best, Jenna and Chris"

Jonathan and Kimberley Feldman

"Thank you so much, It really was the perfect day! Your team were exceptional, there was no point a single guest was left waiting. We had a number of vegetarian and vegan guests who commented that the food was far beyond standard and we're surprised at how you substituted the protein to complement our meat dish. The bespoke cocktails on the bar were great and our non drinking friend who we substituted the drinks package had endless coke. A really personal touch to go along with all the other little personal tweaks and touches. So personal yet so professional. The best wedding/event catering I've ever seen and I've worked in the industry for 10 years previously. THANK YOU SO MUCH X X"

Catherine Fogg

"Dear Briony, Gareth and I just wanted to say how blown away we were with the food. I know we tried everything at the tasting day but it seemed to taste even better! Everyone was coming up to me and commenting on how amazing the food was! “the best wedding food we had ever eaten”……..and our friends and family have been to lots and lots of weddings! We’ve just been to an event with Gareths side of the family and his uncle said the brownie was the best thing he’s ever eaten, he said he will be talking about it for years to come! We also wanted to say how amazing the service was! Everyone felt they were looked after and if anyone needed anything your staff were there to help with absolutely anything! Gareth and I felt truly at ease with everything on the day and we could relax knowing everything was under control. Everything about your service has been amazing from day one, from the emails to the taster day to the big day we have been blown away by your organisation and professionalism. Nothing felt like it was too much for you to sort. We would honestly recommend Barretts to anyone, not only because of your amazing food but your service and professionalism - truly special.
