"Thank you for all your hard work at our wedding at Marks Hall this October. The whole roasted lambs were absolutely superb; we have had many positive comments about the food. The crumble for desert was also excellent. The organisation of the catering from start to finish was absolutely spot on. The staff were friendly and attentive but very professional and showed no sign of any stress. We had a superb day and it wouldn’t have been the success that it was without your advice before hand and great food on the day."
