Baby Shower - Afternoon Tea

Once again Courthouse Catering was amazing at my daughter’s baby shower.

Everyone was very complimentary about the food and the service Ash provided. I always think it’s a difficult line to tread being present and warm, serving clients and not being intrusive. Ash managed this so well.

Thank you as always for your repeated service, we will continue to use Courthouse Catering for parties and events and would not hesitate to recommend your team to our friends for any catering events.

August 2023


I would like to say an enormous and heartfelt THANK YOU for everything in the lead up to and during the wedding. I cannot thank you and your team enough. On the day you guys just turned up and suddenly everything was
ready and I literally didn't even notice anything, you just magically produced food and drink that looked and tasted fantastic. We've had SO many comments from guests about how superb the food was, and it's true, it was perfect. All the full options were lovely, and everybody with dietary requirements felt incredibly well looked after. Your staff were so friendly, polite, and helpful through the whole day, especially considering how much there was to do, from moving your entire bar set up right at the start, finishing the table set ups so efficiently, to saving us canapes so
we didn't miss out, to setting up the teas/coffees/dessert so beautifully
with literally no guidance from me, and to setting up the evening food so wonderfully, with even less guidance. I didn't end up having any evening food on the day, or even seeing it, but when we got the photos it was so nice to see how lovely it all looked! For someone who is a huge micromanager and struggles to put trust into people, walking into the barn to see everything you guys had just sorted out perfectly without being asked or anything, I cannot thank you more for just being absolute professionals who really know what you're doing with all things events
