Testimonials

“What a wonderful lunch you gave us on the occasion of the Queen’s visit to the Mount. We have had so many appreciative letters praising the food, your staff and the relaxed atmosphere, including letters from HM’s Private Secretary and Lady in Waiting.

From start (months ago!) to finish your professionalism, commitment and passion for perfection shone through and James and I are very grateful for your fantastic contribution to a wonderful day."

Lord and Lady St Levan, St Michael’s Mount, 17th May 2013

“Working with the Round Kitchen ladies and their wonderful team really is a pleasure which is why we use them year after year for our Summer Ball and any visits we may have from our Royal Patron HRH Duchess of Cornwall. I personally wouldn’t even consider using anyone else.

The food is always of the highest quality and the presentation of it is spot on. They are incredibly hard working and for several years now we have had our Summer Ball on the Saturday with 200 guests until the early hours only to transform the venue for a volunteer thank you event the following morning with 250 guests arriving at midday!”

Susie Croft, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, Summer Ball 16th July 2016

“You were both awesome all the way through with keeping us happy on what can easily become a stressful day and I know you even helped my mum sort the cake! We were also really impressed with your FoH / waiting / bar staff as well – they were super polite and attentive all day and the place settings were exactly as we wanted them ”

Paul and Katie, Polhawn Fort, 12th November 2016

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping to make our 50th Birthday celebrations so wonderful. From the moment I first contacted you until we said goodbye on Saturday evening, your service and customer care has been fantastic. The meal was loved by all, beautifully presented and prepared.

You provided the whole package leaving us with no preparation, service of drinks or clearing up to do. We could not have asked for more”

Lucy Craig, Polpier House, 5th November 2016

“We were thrilled with everything you provided; the food was faultless, the service was excellent and the bar was spot on. You and your team couldn't have done enough. We have had countless comments on the quality of the food from guests and won't be hesitating to recommend you to everyone we can!”

Alison and Tom Blake, Aussie Marquees, Sticker, 3rd September 2016

“Thank you so much for all the care and attention you put into creating such a delicious meal for our wedding day. You are a delight to know and work with. Please share our gratitude with all your staff as well”

Singhashri and Shraddhasiddhi, Polhawn Fort, 31st August 2016

“Your staff were also great and so friendly and professional. It was a real privilege to eat your food on our wedding day”

Katie and Ben, Marquee on the Cliff top at Croyde, 27th August 2016

“The crab claws went down a storm (especially with the Swedes!) The scallops were so fresh and the perfect starter. The beef was a generous portion cooked perfectly as was the fresh fish. All the sides were great, and everyone was very happy to have chips at a wedding! The dessert was also very delicious! The Swedish hotdogs were fantastic!

It wasn't just the amazing food we want to thank you for. From the first time we met you we had every faith in you knowing you would have everything under control. Always flexible and helpful, even when changing our minds quite a few times! We really felt like you cared about all the little details, and that meant a lot to us.

We feel incredibly lucky that you were recommended to us and that you were available.
I can't imagine how much preparation and hard work it must be for you, but you really are the perfect team”

Eric and Emily, Boconnoc, 5th July 2016

“We have received so many compliments and you and the team should be extremely proud of all that you achieve. We have no hesitation in recommending you and know that if there is ever another Keeble party we will come back!”

Jennie and Graham Keeble, Marquee in Trevose 18th June 2016

“Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help on our wedding day. Every single guest raved about the food and said not only was it the best wedding food EVER, but just in general one of the most memorable and delicious food many of our guests ever had too!!! It was such a huge compliment to us foodies but it's all thanks to you guys!!!” 

Ariko and Jamie, Japanese Themed Wedding, Boconnoc 29th May 2016

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both and all your lovely staff for the huge effort and love you put into your food for our wedding Saturday. You went above and beyond your job by turning our room around for us, which really helped us relax. You did a better job that I would have done myself and the tables looked stunning”

Nikki and Dale, Porth en Alls House, Prussia Cove, 5th December 2015

“A huge heartfelt thank you for the outstanding catering at our wedding day. You and your team were utterly faultless and we will never forget what was the most scrummy, awesome food.

You have the most amazing business and are such lovely ladies to boot. We adored the day from start to finish and you guys were just the best. Awesome Awesome Awesome....

Thank you so much for helping our day to be so magical”.

Karen and Emily, Polhawn Fort 1st September 2015

“We have received lots of very positive feedback about your lovely staff, who were all so well presented, polite and did a brilliant job running the day and coordinating everyone. When we spoke initially a major selling point for us was that you only provide for one event per weekend, meaning that you yourselves would be here on the day together with a consistent team of staff, so we were confident that you would have a great understanding of what we were looking to achieve on the day. From the moment we arrived back from the reception you guys basically ran the rest of the day, coordinating the Master of Ceremonies, moving people from reception to dinner, prompting the speeches at the right time. All of it was done seamlessly – as we had expected after your professionalism and patience through the entire preparation process”.

Hazel and Jonathan, Exeter, 29th August 2015

“I just wanted to send you a mail to say thank you. The food at the wedding really was amazing! I have eaten in restaurants all over the world and can honestly say I haven’t ever had a steak as nice as that I have no idea how you guys did it in that little kitchen and made everything so perfectly!” 

Anna Devey and David Buzzard, Pentillie Castle, 27th June 2015

“I just wanted to say thank you again for the most amazing food on our wedding day, the exceptional service from you and all the staff (they were brilliant fun too!) and your utmost attention to detail.  I really cannot stress enough how much this meant to me and Andy, especially when food is so important to me as a chef.  You alleviated all stress from me entirely, and I felt absolutely confident that you would deliver on the day.  This was only to be re-iterated by each one of our guests who have all passed on their enthusiastic thank yous and compliments to me time and again since.”  

Emma and Andy Sheltrum, Boconnoc House 11th April 2015

“I must thank you both for making the 70th dinner so memorable from the delicious canapes right through to the cheeseboard, every course was superb. Catering for a table of retired hoteliers is not easy as they all have exacting standards but everyone was rightfully impressed. The starter was so different with beautiful texture and flavour. I loved the combination of ingredients for the fillet of pork and the brulee was so smooth with such a lovely finish.
Good luck with your business for the future, you deserve all your success”.

Hilary Metcalfe, Restormel Manor, Lostwithiel, 12th January 2015

 “Everyone commented on the amazing food and I was particularly overwhelmed by your warmth, care and professionalism. Phil and I will never forget the 19th April 2014 and you both played an important role in making it the day it was”.

Sarah and Phil Gould, Nancarrow, 19th April 2014

“Where can we begin with our thank yous? You truly did us proud. Besides the delicious and never ending food you lovingly made us, your management and organisation of the day, we could not have done without. You are masters of your trade. We have had nothing but compliments about the food and your staff. We can’t thank you enough”.

Claire and Ruari, Lanyon, 12th October 2013

“Right from our first contact with you, the whole process was made easy by your friendly advice, professional attitude and enthusiasm for your work. Nothing was too much trouble and you happily agreed to all our requests which were followed through in every detail, catering for some of our family and friends as real individuals. The wedding breakfast itself was a delight, it looked appealing, tasted great, was generous too and was also served with smooth efficiency”.

Jackie and Tony Burns, Polhawn Fort, 5th September 2013

“Lucy and Sarah, what can I say? You fulfilled everything that we hoped for to ensure that the wedding reception was enjoyed by everyone. We appreciated your attention to detail and complete reliability in every area. Your help in the planning stages was brilliant; the food was delicious and beautifully presented – many guests have written to us complimenting it. Your team were superb – efficient, pleasant and discreet. Thank you so much for all your hard work”

Gill and Nigel Druce, Marquee, Mawnan Smith, 6th July 2013

“So Sarah and Lucy, thank you for being so caring with your input to the wedding and for the various ways you have been part of what has been a very special year for us. All good wishes for your continued, well deserved success in the future. And love from us here in Scotland”.

Celia and David Hughes, Polhawn Fort, 25th May 2013

“EVERYONE commented on two specific things; 1. That the food was AMAZING, and 2. That the team were fantastic. You and your guys went above and beyond the call of duty over and over again throughout the entire day, and people have been updating me on stories of things like Rosa sponging red wine out of my friend Emily’s dress after it was spilled all over her, and helping with broken buttons/ripped seams and all sorts of little things like that that we simply could not have asked more of.
 
Firstly, yes, the food was indeed fab. Absolutely delicious. People raved about it! And secondly, your kindness, hard work, and patience for my barrage of ideas that were coming your way was brilliant. It wouldn’t have been the wedding we wanted without you, and we will tell anybody that who wants catering recommendations for their big day!”

Sarah and Grant, Dinham House, Marquee, New Year Eve 2012

"We had no doubt from the rave reviews we had read that the food was going to be amazing but after our meeting with you in September, we both knew we had chosen the best team for the job for sure. You helped in so many other ways, advising on the amount of drink we needed, ideas for when to serve drinks, sourcing local cider for us etc etc (list goes on) and taking all the worry out of the 'flow' of the day by ensuring your staff handled everything from welcoming the guests to setting the tables to running the bar for us."

Victoria and Iain, Polhawn Fort October 2012

"Trying to capture exactly what we want was difficult, but The Round Kitchen helped us do it seamlessly. They put forward suggestions in a way that shows their passion for what they do, but not in a way that took what we wanted in a completely different direction. Their work at our weding weekend itself was absolutely sublime, we could not have asked for better."

Ashley and Stephen, Polhawn Fort September 2012

"Thank you both so much for all you did during the run up to Clemency and Anthony's wedding and on the day. Your calm professionalism, kindness and attention to detail were invaluable and made both James and me feel 100% confident in the choice of The Round Kitchen."

Mary and James St Aubyn, St Michael's Mount August 2012

"What a great service we had from your team of girls. Please convey our gratitude. All of our guests commented on the professional service, great attitude and smiles. They were perfect and made everyone feel special."

Robin and Sue, Marquee at Crantock July 2012

"A BIG thank you to Sarah, Lucy and the rest of the team for an absolutely fantastic event - it really could not have gone any better!"

Susie Smith, Cornwall Air Ambulance 25th Anniversary Summer Ball

"Well ladies, What can I say?! You are the ultimate professionals and masters of your trade. Every single thing you did from start to finish simply blew us away. From the minute we met you, we absolutely knew you were the perfect caterers for us. We clicked straight away. You are fun, approachable, tirelessly dedicated, committed and there was never a moment where we doubted the food and service would be anything short of perfection - we were right."

Annie and Pete, Marquee near Bude June 2012

"As fantastic as the food was, the best thing was the way you and your team prepared and handled everything so calmly and professionally. You are absolute pros - first class - and we had no worries about anything as it was just taken care of. I couldn't imagine a better team to deal with than you guys on such an important day."

Sian and Nathan, St Mawes Castle, April 2012

"Well we were amazed by the food.  We could not believe that such superb quality could be reproduced in such large quantities.  The starter had people asking for seconds, the beef was magnificent and soooo tender and the gravy mmmm. The dessert was the perfect 'Strawberry Seduction' .... Fantastic, every mouthful!."

Alysia and Mark, Polhawn Fort, New Years Eve 2011

"Your staff were brilliant.  So friendly, efficient and attentive.. we couldn't have asked for anything more.  And the food was AMAZING.  Everyone has been telling us how delicious their meals were and what a great job you did"

Meri and Matt, Polhawn Fort, December 2011

"A Perfect Day.....All of our guests commented on the very high standard of food and many stated that it was by far the best wedding breakfast they had ever eaten.  What followed with the evening buffet, full English breakfast and barbeque was second to none and we felt so proud to see the enjoyment on all our friends and families faces as they enjoyed every course"

Karen and Ed, Polhawn Fort, October 2011

"On the weekend of our wedding the whole team at The Round Kitchen continued their exemplary standard with their professionalism, attention to detail and good humour.  This included our wedding favours and table settings being discussed in detail and then placed so perfectly, all the support with our seating plan, ourselves being found by the waiters to make sure we got some canapes and pimms during the photographs. They too were amazing, tantalising and generously portioned.  Well worth having"

Nerys and Mike, Polhawn Fort August 2011

"Fantastic!  Need we say more? Well yes. Thank you both, and your team, so much for creating a perfect wedding banquet on the occasion of our son Richard and daughter in law Erica's wedding reception.  They, as we did felt that they had a dream wedding. From the first moment that we contacted you, you always responded swiftly and professionally, there was never a 'can't do that' always a 'yes we can' and excellent advice when we were unsure."

Joan and Roy Turner, Marquee June 2011

"Our wedding day was absolutely magical and you very much helped that happen. All of our guests commented on just how delicious the food was - they had never had a barbeque like it! Thank you so much for all that you have done - you really are outstanding and one day I'd love an excuse to use you again."

Mr and Mrs Caddy, Marquee May 2011

"The food was amazing and all the staff were lovely and very professional - we had loads of comments from our family and friends saying how much they enjoyed the food and service, several have said it was the best food they have ever had at any wedding. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day a day to remember."

James and Sarah, Lantallack April 2011

"I am agog with admiration! The tables looked superb - beyond my imaginings - I now know I need not have had any worries. The way the room was set up - so quietly and professionally was just fantastic. I cannot thank you enough and I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe how great it was!"

Pat Kitchin, Polhawn March 2011

"On the day itself, Sarah and Lucy blew everyone away with their food. The canapes went down a storm and the mains were fantastic too!! The desserts had people coming back for thirds and then half way through the disco, the kebabs came out and our mates felt well and truly at home! We cannot thank The Round Kitchen highly enough, as veritable wedding planners, counsellors and caterers, they made our day!"

Becks and Andi, Marquee June 2010

"We were really pleased with our food choices. Aesthetically the canapes and wedding breakfast looked fantastic, however, they tasted even better than they looked! In particular, your beef wellington was magnificent. We had many comments about the fact that the food was piping hot when it reached the table and the vegetables kept coming! Finally we'd like to say a big thank you for our cake of cheese. You decorated the cake exactly as we had hoped and it looked absolutely stunning."

Bruce and Vicks, Polhawn Fort September 2010

"We're not quite sure where to start in saying thank you to you both. You have been excellent in so many respects and we're very glad that we chose to have you as caterers for our daughter's wedding. From the planning through to the execution, you have been professional, flexible, helpful, quick to respond to queries and lovely people to work with. Your encouragement and support has been superb and your ability to problem solve, come up with good ideas and overcome limitations is absolutely first rate"

David and Jay Miles, Marquee August 2009

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything and for all your hard work on Saturday! We had a wonderful day and you were fantastic and helped to make our day really special. Everyone raved about the food and said it was absolutely delicious. Both myself and Dean were thrilled with your food and your service. All your staff were wonderful"

Eve and Dean Pentillie Castle August 2009

"Craig and I were also pleased to hear that the waiting staff were explaining the food theme of 'food from the bride and groom's region'. It certainly did bring a smile to the North East contingent when trying to explain a stottie cake. We thought we had given you a fairly tough brief to create a canapes menu inspired by interesting food from the North East! However your ideas were full of originality, and Craig's family are still impressed that you managed to not just identify but source Double Maxim beer from Sunderland."

Emma Charlton Polhawn Fort May 2008

"On the day of our wedding such anticipation did not go unrewarded, as I can honestly say I have never tasted such delicious food at a wedding. It was one of the most memorable meals of my life and not just because I was sat next to my new wife. The menu turned out to be perfectly balanced with every dish both sumptuous in its own right and complimentary to the whole. Thanks for helping us to have our dream wedding"

Magnus and Kate Jardine Brown St Mawes May 2009

"From the first time we spoke on the phone we knew we would get along, as we had the same sense of humour and it was clear that we shared a passion for food! You were also extremely professional with an incredible attention to detail, giving us ideas leading up to the day and helping us with all the planning. You probably got a feel for how grateful we are when you were thanked in three speeches!"

JoAnna and Andy Pohawn Fort September 2008
