Beth & Dylan you guys were amazing!! Nothing was ever too much trouble, you embraced our vision, service was amazing and food exceptional!!! Thank you for making our day so special!! Emma and Trevor
The catering was absolutely fantastic. The grazing table was beautiful and guests really loved it! It was a hit with all ages too. The mains were absolutely fantastic as well, the chef was so creative with the vegetarian and vegan mains and salads and they were absolutely delicious. We had so much wonderful feedback from guests! The cakes were amazing and a huge hit too! Hardly any leftover! And on that - we were so pleased with the amount of food - it was sized really well. The leftovers were absolutely beautiful and we were so pleased to avoid food waste (I'm a long time volunteer at Kaibosh, a food rescue organisation, so it means a lot to me). Your staff are excellent! So friendly, efficient, friendly and kind. They were excellent. Thanks so much, Liz and Nat
It was such a wonderful day and the team helped to make it so special. The food, the service and the atmosphere was great. We had a lot of feedback from our guests on the food and the service, they were really impressed with the quality and attention to detail. Also, really appreciated the air of calm that the team had. (We were a pretty chill group of people but it was also nice to see such a level of calmness and control from the team). Thanks to them, and I can honestly say I would highly recommend InHouse to anyone! :) Thanks, Julia
We held a surprise wedding for very special friends and family at Easter and asked Beth and her team to cater for us. From the outset Beth and head chef Dylan were exceptionally professional including an initial meeting at our home all the way through to conducting the actual event itself. Both my husband and I are ex-military and in our 50's and our expectations for fine dining were high, to which they did not disappoint. To physically have onsite in our home a head chef, sous-chef, two wait staff plus Beth personally managing the event was a privilege that absolutely made our day special i.e. it meant we were able to offer guest's 5 choices of canape's before dining and then 2 entrees, 2 mains and 2 deserts for the main dinner, followed with a fromage platter and teas and coffees. Every meal presented was to the highest standards equal to any of the top restaurant's that we've ever dined at and all our guests thought they were amazing. The wait staff were fabulous and everything we could have asked for. Nothing was a problem, they were warm and friendly through-out and we'd like to congratulate Beth and her team on an innovative idea and excellent team work. We'd like to thank Beth and her team for making our day the 'fine-dining' experience that we wanted for our guests. Very, very highly recommended and we look forward to using your services again. Mr & Mrs (Lana) Paul McKinney
We used In House Catering for our wedding, serving canapes following the ceremony and buffet dinner/dessert for our reception, along with drinks service throughout . The food was seriously delicious and looked amazing, staff were awesome and Beth was an absolute legend right from when we first met her. Between our initial email and our first meeting, she had already made a visit to the venue so had an idea of what we would need. She took a huge amount of stress and planning out of the day for us, going way beyond expectations. Also their retro caravan was a super cool added touch to our beautiful wedding!! Massive thanks to Beth and the team!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a catering company.
I just wanted to let you know that I have been receiving lots of compliments about the food you have organised for us the past few days, and I haven’t heard anything negative at all. There are barely any leftovers, even though there is plenty of food provided. There are also hardly any half-eaten items – everything is gone! From my end (the organiser not the eater….) you guys are amazing to work with. I am terrible at choosing menus and estimating amounts of food so the fact that you guys are happy to sort it all makes my life easier. You are also wonderful to deal with All the items are delivered on time and labelled so clearly. Thank you again for all your help!
My guests all loved our ‘In House’ lunch dishes on Saturday. There were lots of positive comments from the adults, and no complaints from the children! Kind regards, Lynette B
Thank you for all your help on Saturday night; the evening was a huge success, and we really appreciated all the help that you and the team provided. All of the feedback was positive, and it went really well overall. It was great to see that the students behaved themselves and we all just had a great time. I will be recommending In House Catering to the incoming Executive to use again because of how successful and reasonably priced the services were. You all went above and beyond for us, and we really do appreciate it. Thanks again!
A big thank you to the team at In House Catering. You were so helpful, responsive and no fuss from the moment I made contact. The food itself was delicious and plentiful - everybody loved it. Thanks again, Zoe
Just thought i'd pass on the comments we got from course attendees along the lines of "best course food ever" Thanks again!
Thank you so much to your team for the wonderful afternoon tea, the food was divine and our team thoroughly enjoyed it, everthing gone!!!!! Again, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Again thank you so much!
As always, you did such a fantastic job in our last Christmas lunch and I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a great service, delicious food and always with a smile. Please pass on my best wishes for this Holiday season and hope to see you all again in the new year.
Thank you so much for the wonderful food on Saturday, it was absolutely delicious.... The mini Yorkshire puds were my absolute favourite! Thanks again for all your help, I have been recommending you to everyone already and shall continue to! Cheers Ellie
What a great function last night! It was great to meet you and Callum and Steph... Thank you all for the service you provided, not least, the delicious food. We had very favourable feedback on your catering – especially … the garlic king prawn and spring onion wrapped in prosciutto bites! Having Callum tending to the refreshments and Steph with the food platters was a wonderful decision and was an extra special touch to the whole evening. Thank you for cutting the cake …. to be able to serve that amongst the guests was also the perfect way to ensure everyone had an opportunity to take a piece. The remainder of the cake came back here, has been divided up so we all get a decent piece to share with our staff. Of course, we all had another for morning tea and I think…. will again tomorrow and the day after that …. yum The kitchen was left spotless and well appreciated. So, our catering relationship with In House will continue for the monthly meetings and certainly if we have another function to plan! Many thanks again for helping ensure the success of our celebration. Cheers Lyn
"My wife and I spent some time deliberating on what to do for our 50th wedding anniversary, and after striking out all the usual things that people tend to do at milestones such as this, more often than not going off somewhere alone, we decided to hold a function at our house ... and invite family and some friends. This ended up being a great choice and engaging InHouse Catering to remove the stress of preparing the catering made the evening all the more successful ... they listened to what we wanted, made suggestions on what to do, and then delivered on what was agreed.”
Just like to say a big thank you to the team at In House catering, the food looked amazing and arrived exactly on time. Thanks, Estelle Flowers Rediscovered
I have used In House Catering for both a work and a personal event, Beth and her team are so easy to deal with and not to mention their food is superb. Len (chef) and Julian (waiter) joined us in our home to cater a significant birthday and we couldn’t have been more impressed, they were so professional and everything was seamless. The feedback from guests has been 10/10, I will certainly be using In House again. - Kylee
Thank you so much for catering for our client event on 3 July, the service for the delivery and the canapes was fabulous, would highly recommend you and would certainly use you again. - Alison Graham Studio Concierge Isthmus Group Limited (Wellington Studio)
What a great luncheon you provided and serviced. The guests raver about the food and the family found your staff so warm and lovely. Please pass on our thanks to the girls and Michelle the Chef, she was marvelous Diana
We just wanted to say how much we loved the food today. It was such fantastic service and such a treat not to have to cook! The food was amazing and we all really enjoyed it. We loved the little touches like the menu cards. Very much appreciated Cheers Ruth
Thank you Aleisha to you and the chef for an awesome spread. We absolutely loved the delicious food and the presentation was too good! Will definitely come back in future and have recommended to our family and friends who were asking where we got it done 😊 Most importantly thank you so much for being so accommodating to our halal options and last minute changes. Awesome customer service! Kind Regards Sazia
Just wanted to thank you and your team for an amazing spread yesterday. Ryan was very friendly and efficient. We were blown away by the presentation and all of the food was delicious. The bao buns were a hit. Our guests loved it and we had so many comments about the grazing tables. Your food really added to the occasion. Thanks again. I know we’ll be recommending you to all our friends and family. Best wishes Lupe
