Thank you and your team for all you did on Friday and Saturday. Both parties went well and we have had many messages of thanks from guests already - so credit to you for your important part in the evenings...

Apologies for delayed email but your canapés were fantastic for my Aquila Jewellery Launch on Friday night. They looked lovely and everyone appreciated them.
It was great to see you and thank you for staying to do the last minute touches.
I hope I may see you over the summer at a lovely event if I am lucky!
Huge thanks again.
Don and Chris(Thursday, November 03 16 08:18 am GMT)
Hi Gill, Thank you again for playing such a large part in making my 80th. birthday so memorable. Without exception my guests said how enjoyable the catering was. A thoroughly deserved FIVE STARS. I don't have a facebook account so I don't know how get this to a wider audience, but if you can please feel free to do so. Good luck and best wishes, Don and Chris.
Deb and Chris(Thursday, November 03 16 08:16 am GMT)
We both agreed that it was the best party we have ever hosted, and it was in large part down to yourself and Angela being so efficient and friendly. The canapés looked and tasted great and the drinks topped up seamlessly. Lots of people commented on how smiley you were and how lovely the food was. Thank you very much, it was a great night.
I would not hesitate to recommend you.

I had a savoury tart from your stand on Saturday at the Hanbury Show the Brie & Bacon it was delicious so much so I w t on to have a choclate tart and that was to die for, glad I found your
stand, which by the way was beautifully presented, hope to see you at Worcester Show.
Hayden Lloyd(Monday, June 20 16 09:28 pm BST)
Bought some excellent Lemon Meringue tarts as recommended by Charles Campion, Master food critic. Just as he said real strong taste of lemon they were really good.
Pippa Badger Blackburn(Wednesday, June 15 16 07:13 pm BST)
Saw Gill at the food & drink festival in Cheltenham. Her stall was lovely & she was very welcoming & friendly. My friends & I tried her key lime pie & chocolate espresso tart. The
pastry was beautifully made & both were absolutely delicious. We would definitely recommend for special occasions. Big thumbs up!!!
Cam & James(Wednesday, June 01 16 06:13 pm BST)
Thank you so much for making Mum & Dad's evening such a
success. It was wonderful that they were able to relax and enjoy the
company of their guests. Usually they are rushing around serving,
clearing dishes and topping up drinks. The canapés were delicious and
you and Angela were truly magnificant - James & I would like a Christmas
Alice(Tuesday, May 24 16 03:25 pm BST)
Thank you very much for the delicious cakes the other day. They were perfect for our unexpected 'occasion'.
Lady Alexandra(Friday, April 15 16 08:26 am BST)
Thank you so much for providing fantastic canapes for our and passing them round at speed to all the guests. The drinks were topped up and it was all perfect. We were very pleased with how the party
went and no-one wanted to leave.
Alexandra & Anthony(Friday, April 15 16 08:20 am BST)
You did a spectacular job and I loved the key lime pies. I tried as much as I could and ate far too much! It was all delivious and there seemed to be plenty of everything. Your staff were very
attentive and please pass on our appreciation which is in regard to everything you all did.
John & Judy(Friday, April 15 16 08:16 am BST)
Just a note to thank you for last Thursday. Compliments and praise are still flowing in from the guests. Food was great, varied, and tasty.
Lisa(Tuesday, February 09 16 05:46 pm GMT)
Excellent job done..even coped with guests arriving very late due to flooding. Staff unflustered and helpful.
Alan M. Pardoe(Tuesday, February 09 16 09:40 am GMT)
I immediately took to Gill and her relaxed yet efficient personality from the time she came to inspect the premises to her excellent provision of refreshments. She tirelessly served all of the
provisions which were very good and tasty. Several of the guests expressed their appreciation asking me 'where did I find this treasure?'
I can thoroughly recommend her for all of these qualities.
Mo(Wednesday, January 13 16 11:33 am GMT)
Thank you so so much for my lovely birthday tea and cake everyone was very happy and sent cards etc saying what a good time they had and the wonderful food.
Very Best Wishes and much gratitude for a lovely party.
Alison(Thursday, December 10 15 10:32 am GMT)
Thank you so much to you and your team for everything last night. The night went smoothly and the canapés were delicious.
I shall look forward to working with you again soon.
Donald Mackenzie(Wednesday, December 02 15 06:55 am GMT)
Many thanks for the great catering at last night’s event.
As always the food was excellent and the service exceptional.
Both you and Tain really helped make for a very successful evening.
We will without doubt use Canapes by Gill again.

Annie & Peter.(Wednesday, June 24 15 06:20 pm BST)
All the canapes looked and tasted lovely.Thank you for the way you looked after everyone and for making the party a great success.Kindest regards Peter & Annie.
Johanna(Wednesday, April 15 15 01:00 pm BST)
Gill added a touch of class with her five-star service to our new office open evening in March. Her understanding of what works in regards to hosting for a particular type of event and location
proved invaluable to my planning process. Because of the way that Gill so elegantly welcomed, mingled and hosted the guests, they were very surprised to learn that she was not a team member of Thomas
Guise. The food was amazing, especially the mini beef and Yorkshire pudding, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.” Johanna Morgan, Marketing Manager, Thomas Guise Solicitors

Gill & Sophie
Another successful “Do.” Thank you for all your hard work and care, the food was lovely and I had some very good comments. Also thanks for the gluten free bases, even though they were not needed
after all!!! Take care, Sue and Tony
Just a short note to say how pleased we were with the superb catering on Saturday , you and your assistant Angela made everything effortless and your attention to detail was excellent , the food was
super I will highly recommend you to any of my friends.
Anne Sanders & Nick Jeynes(Friday, March 20 15 04:41 pm GMT)
Although we had Gill to cater for a sad occasion she made it so much easier with her warm smile and her delicious canapes. There was something there for everyone some new and different ideas and all
were scrumptious and the presentation was faultless. It's the second time we've used Gills services both for very different occasions and she always gets the balance just right from the initial
enqiry through to the execution of the event. Warm and friendly and always the professional. Fantastic fantastic fantastic!

Susie Stocks(Thursday, October 02 14 02:25 pm BST)
At our recent wedding in August, Gill provided the wide range of canapés, 11 per head, with great style, flair and charm.
She enthusiastically entered into pre wedding discussions about presentation of the food, and how to achieve the variety of tastes and textures we wanted. In addition, we also had coeliac/gluten free
, and vegetarian requirements. Gold Star all round!
Many guests commented on how delicious the food was, and I would not hesitate to recommend Gill's canapés to anyone, whatever the occasion. Plus, drinks were also served, and everything came with a
Lesley(Monday, August 18 14 09:11 pm BST)
Thank you for a great meal much appreciated and well received by my guests. I enjoyed the evening despite not being in control! The canapés were beautifully presented and thanks for bringing them I
noticed the tiny hearts a lovely touch. It was wonderful to have no prep and you did a fantastic job clearing away. The guests commented on the good food so many thanks for your skilled cooking. It
was certainly a more relaxing night for us, so huge thanks to you and Karen for making it a success.
Dawn Sayers(Friday, May 30 14 04:23 pm BST)
I've been around canapés all my life, but NEVER have I seen nor tasted such totally EXQUISITE canapés as those Gill made for our daughters wedding! They were FANTASTIC! Gill provided us with a top
notch service, lovely waitresses, no hassle,... I could go on and on! Totally recommend her to everyone. If you're looking for canapés and you don't have Gill, you seriously are missing out! Ten Gold
Judi Creed-Newton(Friday, May 16 14 09:14 pm BST)
Gill is a true professional.From her expert advice in helping me choose the menu to the superb finger buffet that she created for my 70th birthday party I could recommend Gill for any occasion.Thank
you Gill you helped make my big day.
Gill and her team provided a really first rate service for my book launch. The presentation was beautiful, the food delicious and imaginative, and the service friendly but professional. Gill took
great trouble to cater for all the special dietary needs of my guests, managing the challenge with a smile and flair. The catering has attracted as many favourable comments as the book!
Jane(Wednesday, April 16 14 05:50 pm BST)
Stupendous cakes!!!!!! All devoured in seconds tonight...Zoe's boyfriend said the chocolate one was the perfect chocolate heaven.....thank you! Should have got more! Jane xxxx
Just to thank you for the work you did at the party following my mother's funeral last Wednesday.
It really took so much stress out of the situation for me to know that I didn't have to worry about that aspect of things at all and that you were dealing with it so very capably and
Thank you again, I don't think I could have done it without you.
Amanda Reade(Tuesday, February 11 14 07:59 pm GMT)
On Sunday Gill provided the canapés for a birthday fairy tea party. This is now the third time we have asked Gill to help us entertain our guests; the first occasion being our annual Christmas party
and the second a summer birthday party.
Whatever the occasion Gill will rise to the challenge with amazing zeal and enthusiasm. Her extensive knowledge and experience is invaluable in the planning process and her hosting skills simply
impeccable. As for the food a delight! Delicious and beautifully presented, her canapés are like little jewels.
Knowing that Gill has matters in hand really allows the hosts to relax and enjoy the event, which after all is what it's all about!
We have already recommended Gill's services to several of our friends who we know have been just as pleased as we have been.
With many thanks
James & Amanda Reade
Alex & Martin(Saturday, February 01 14 05:27 pm GMT)
Thank you for making our day so special.
We had a wonderful time and lots of guests were saying how fabulous you canapés were- the one's that could string a sentence together that is! We are already talking about a summer bash and I'll be
recommending you to all our friends.
Alex & Martin
Jacques de Wit(Wednesday, January 15 14 01:57 pm GMT)
I am writing to thank you so much for the friendly and professional catering service you provided for my 6oth Birthday party here at Harts Farm.
The canapes were excellent and there was plenty for all tastes. You did a brilliant job for us, serving the canape's, welcoming guests, serving the champagne and generally make the party run very
smoothly. This allowed us to enjoy the party in the sure knowledge that all our guests were very well looked after by you and your team.
We have no hesitation in recommending you for any function such as parties, weddings, wakes etc etc.
Thank you so much for your efforts and we will certainly use you again and recommend you to our friends.
With best wishes,
Richard & Rosemary Harwood(Monday, January 13 14 07:34 pm GMT)
Another excuse to sample Gill's most wonderful food and service. 16 people for a Sunday lunch after new Year. it excelled expectations once again and all the guests were immensely impressed and
justifiably so. The table looked as beautiful as the food was delicious. Thank you Gill. It is amazing not to feel exhausted after a party!
Rosemary and Richard
Janet Ayres(Monday, October 14 13 02:07 pm BST)
Thank you very much for the lovely food, care and attention you provided at our christening/birthday party, you made a special occasion totally stress free.
Many thanks & best wishes

Lovely food, fantastic service! Will be highly recommending you to all our friends!
Caroline(Monday, October 07 13 10:26 am BST)
Thank you for all yours and Katie's hard work, which made my 50th birthday celebrations such a special evening.
Your canapés were amazing, so many people commented how great the food was.
R Head(Friday, October 04 13 12:45 pm BST)
I was delighted by the service, support, and quality that was provided when planning the wake following my mother's funeral. The planning process was simple, straight forward, and sensible. The
execution was first class. Nothing was too much bother for Gill and her team, which meant the event was a resounding success and a reall celebration of my mother''so life. The food was delicious,
Katrina(Monday, June 17 13 10:16 pm BST)
A belated thank you, for the wonderful lunch you prepared for the Archery society here, on that sunny Friday !
All our guests were very appreciative; the soup was the perfect summer starter, the salmon was very good and the salads were amazing shades of jade and emerald !
Thank you for rescuing me - and for being so helpful
Gill and her team provided a champagne reception with canapés for 180 people at the premiere of a film I produced - The Monday Night Club Has Got Talent, directed but Max Allsup. As this was a
Red Carpet event a very high standard and excellent service was required. I could not have asked for a better catering team in London or New York! Gill's contribution to the evening's success
was immeasurable. Fresh, homemade, delicious! Thank you Gill, and all your lovely girls. Excellent!
Kate & Tim Dunkley(Tuesday, May 07 13 10:56 pm BST)
Gill provided and served us a wonderful selection of sweet and savoury canapés for a friends and family celebration for our sons 18th birthday. The food was divine - the queue of teenagers for the
mini burgers proved that.
Gill and Katie kept us topped up with drinks and cleared up beautifully. Their wonderful service meant that we could really enjoy the celebration, rather than worrying about serving and clearing
12 out of 10 Gill - we would gladly recommend you and look forward to next time!
Judy and John Neil(Saturday, March 23 13 08:44 pm GMT)
We invited 17 friends and family to our home for a "Cheltenham Festival" day which included watching the racing, drinks and food.
Gill was fantastic - she was able to work out our needs exactly. She did everything including the washing up which meant that we could enjoy the day with no worries.
She cooks and prepares all the food herself and it is fantastic - her dressed salmon should be displayed in the Tate Gallery!!
We cannot recommend Gill highly enough. She is passionate about her food and it shows.
Thanks again Gill.
Rosemary & Richard(Monday, February 04 13 04:10 pm GMT)
An evening with Gill in the kitchen is really special. She is so cheerful & competent & very well organised & the food is fantastic, with interesting flavours & beautifully presented,
for our dinner party.
She even washes up & leaves the kitchen immaculate!
Gill, eaves the hosts to do nothing other than enjoy their evening with their guests, she is highly recommended by these grateful customers (or should it be clients), thanks again

Nigel & Linda Collis Tel 01886 832835(Sunday, December 30 12 03:22 pm GMT)
We planned a two day family gathering in October 2012 and Linda and I needed a high quality caterer.
Gill was recommended to us by a couple of friends and so we contacted her to discuss our requirements
From the moment we met her, we knew she was the one. Her enthusiasm and understanding of our needs was perfect.
Our venue was the Leigh & Bransford Memorial Hall, which was excellent and we had a sitdown dinner for 66 with a hog roast.
Gill provided and served delicious salads followed by two perfect desserts.
The following day we had a further 72 for a sitdown lunch which was completely provided by Gill as discussed with Linda, beautifully presented and served salmon and topside of Herefordshire beef,
served by Gill and her helpful assistants, followed by two mouthwatering puddings. Again as agreed in detail by Linda.
We have no hesitation in recommending Gill to design, agree, prepare and cook, and serve delicious food.
She deserves to win Master Chef.....
She knows her food.
Thank you, Gill
Ken(Saturday, December 22 12 12:03 pm GMT)
Thank you for your excellent buffet service provided at my Sister Muriel's funeral on 18 Dec 12 The canapes were wonderful. Its a pity you are a long way from where we live.
Best wishes Shirley & Ken
Linda & Nigel Collis(Thursday, December 20 12 11:41 am GMT)
message left in Contacts, can you transfer it or shall I send it again?
With best wishes,
Alice and Stephen(Tuesday, December 18 12 06:33 pm GMT)
We booked Gill to do lunch for 15 following our sons' confirmation. The dressed salmon was simply stunning to look at and beautifully cooked, and the accompanying warm salads were delicious. She also
served some of her exquisite canapes before we sat down and we rounded off the meal with a choice of two superb puddings. The way Gill did it worked so well and we have no hesitation in highly
recommending her. She took time to find out how we wanted to do the meal and with her experience she made it a lovely day. It was a change to be able to talk to our guests instead of running around
to get everything done. Thank you Gill!
Pam(Sunday, December 09 12 10:38 pm GMT)
Thank you once again for your splendid canapés and for your help on the day. Everyone was most impressed with the food and your friendly service.
Jess(Monday, November 26 12 09:13 pm GMT)
Thank you again for your terrific food & service, the grandsons enjoyed their pickups, I would recommend you for another occasion.
Rob and Sandra(Thursday, July 12 12 11:14 am BST)
I have just used Gill for our silver wedding anniversary where her canapés were absolutely delicious. We shall definitely be using Gill again and recommending her for future occasions.
Gill(Saturday, June 30 12 09:27 am BST)
Our funeral went very well, your catering service and staff were fabulous on the day, preparing and serving your delicious canapés, I especially liked the lemon cakes.
I am very happy that I used your company.
Tony & Edwina(Friday, May 18 12 10:31 pm BST)
Just had to drop a note to say what a great job you did with the canapés for us.
It was wonderful that we didn't have to think about food as it was taken care of.
The canapés were absolutley delicious and expertly served, freeing us to enjoy our party.
Well done you.
Julie Williams(Wednesday, May 16 12 08:45 pm BST)
On the day of the funeral, Gill and Katie arrived at the appointed hour and took over, quietly and efficiently. Suddenly I realised that I could leave everything in their capable hands and
concentrate on the day itself and the family and friends who had gathered at my home.
Gill's advice in choosing the menu items was invaluable and the food, needless to say, was superb. She came highly recommended and I have no hesitation in similarly recommending her.
janet Bedford(Monday, May 14 12 10:18 pm BST)
It was a real treat. I went to an annual drinks party where the usual, rather boring canapes, were replaced by 'Canapes by Gill' they were simply gorgeous, each one a real performance, presented with
skill and style. I will be using her myself. Keep up the inventive creations!
Rebecca(Friday, May 11 12 08:00 am BST)
Thank you Gill for providing canapés for my Birthday. They were delicious and a perfect accompaniment for the champagne…….needless to say they all disappeared. The mini lemon meringues were a
I would definitely recommend anyone to use you.
Bruce roscoe(Friday, May 11 12 07:56 am BST)
Just to say that Gill and Katy have now done 3 dinner parties for me. The food has been excellent, the service first class, and they both did their best to make the whole evening hugely enjoyable.
All my guests were very impressed and I certainly, will use them again
Anne Lewis(Friday, May 11 12 07:54 am BST)
Thanks to Gill’s excellent culinary skills with her canapés, I was able to enjoy a wine tasting evening at my house as much as my guests! Thank you. Hearty recommendations!
josie(Thursday, May 03 12 06:23 pm BST)
I didn't expect fine fayre at a funeral reception but was very impressed to be offered really fresh home made canapes with discreet but attentive service on this rather sad ocasion. I am non
vegetarian but thoroughly enjoyed the mozarella and fig selection. After all, at the end of the day 'its the little things that count'
Angela Lynch-Harris(Thursday, May 03 12 12:24 am BST)
I attended a garden party last year that Gill had prepared and served the canapes. Being a bit of a seafood lover I was particularly impressed with the Blinis with chilli Crab salad, the Thai chilli
prawns in filo baskets oh and the Prawn and Mango salsa - in fact they were all delicious so I should just say all of them. What really stood out (apart from the food) what the attention to detail,
the courteous staff and how it all just seemed to happen seamlessly.
Jennie Barnes(Tuesday, May 01 12 09:01 am BST)
Gill provided the canapes for a party at our home for 12 of our best friends. The food was delicious and attractively presented. It enabled me to concentrate on enjoying the company of my friends
rather than worrying about the catering. I would have no hesitation in using Gill and her services again in the future
Mandy Carstairs(Monday, April 30 12 07:52 pm BST)
I recently attended one of you events, where you provided the catering of your delicious canapés. You and your team provided high quality food and friendly service. We will book you for our next
function and will also recommend you to our friends and colleagues.
