We absolutely loved our dinner party. The food was delicious, and Rob's team were all so attentive. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Rob & Polly are an exceptional team. We hired them for my mothers 70th Birthday and had 30 guests for lunch and evening. The food was wonderful, everyone praised the food and asked how I’d found such great catering. Rob was very professional and his knowledge of what his customers need was clear from the start. We will definitely use them again.

I booked Rob and Anna as a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday on Saturday.
The booking process was extremely easy. I found brown goose catering on bark.com.
They arrived on time and straight away they were friendly and got straight to work. So professional.
The table setting, cutlery, crockery, candles, decorations etc were all provided by them!
The food was so fresh and absolutely delicious. So much thought went into it all!
We had bread served to us first, then saute chilli prawns to start. Duo of chicken with dauphinoise potatoes for the main course and lemon cheesecake with raspberries and icecream for dessert. Vegetables were also served with the main.
My mum who doesn't eat vegetables LOVED the veg and ate it all! Shocking!
Anna was very professional and was happy to help with anything. So friendly and fitted in with the family so well.
They tidied up and even washed the floor in the kitchen. They left the kitchen spotless and you would never have known they had been there.
For £35 per head it was worth every penny and more!! I couldn't let them leave without a tip as they really deserved it so don't forget to tip them as they work so hard for no more than a set menu in a decent restaraunt/pub!
If I lived in the area I would use them on a regular basis without a doubt.
Fantastic and Thank you so much for making our weekend away such a memorable one!
Natalie :)

Rob and his team are amazing! It is as simple as that. They did private catering for a party of 15 and could not have done a better job. The food was outstanding and the service matched. They could not have done any more for us. That made for one very happy birthday girl! Thank you so much!!!!

We had the most wonderful evening thanks to Polly, Paul and Sophie from Brown Goose. Superb food- absolutely delicious. Excellent service. They just made our evening. Having a choice of two dishes was a very good idea. Starters were delightful. Main courses were outstandingly good. Desserts were perfect. We wish we could have them every week.

Rob and Polly cooked and served a most excellent 3 course dinner for my wife’s 40th. The food was delicious and well presented. Brilliant to be able to choose a choice of 2 items for each course. Although the weather was quite snowy they were still up for the challenge.
I was a little concnered about paying the full price up front a week before but after speaking to Rob was reassured and we had a wonderful dinner.
Certainly will be using him again, hopefully minus the snowy weather.
A great alternative to going out to eat for a family get together with added bonus of not needing to find a baby sitter.

We were delighted with the buffet catered by Brown Goose in the garden of a beautiful home we had rented in Dorset to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary. All the menu choices tasted delicious and looked stunning.
Rob is a highly talented chef and was most helpful to us in the planning process, giving us lots of choice of dishes in addition to catering wonderfully for those of our guests who had individual dietary requirements. He was assisted by Polly who was so relaxed, happy and welcoming, setting the tables attractively and ably looking after all our guests. Mike and Chris were effective and helpful in all that they did and contributed much to the success of our event.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Brown Goose to anyone thinking of holding a catered celebration.
Many thanks Rob. All good wishes to you and your team.
Jackie and David

I found Brown Goose via a google search, as we were planning to holiday around Lyme Regis and with a young family, we were unable to go out for the evening. After speaking to them, we received a lovely meal list to decide our tasting menu for the evening. Not one dish disappointed, each course complemented the next. Truly excellent. Rob's a very friendly and flexible gent. His waiter for the evening, Richard, was warm and friendly too; offering fresh bread, explaining the courses and attending to drinks, exactly what you'd expect in a restaurant. It was a perfect evening, without having to leave our holiday home.
Thoroughly recommend Brown Goose and thanks again to Rob and Richard.

Rob and Gemma provided a 5* service for our group of 6. The food was amazing and their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. I would thoroughly recommend Brown Goose Catering to anyone. Rob made the whole booking experience really stress free and offered a varied menu of choice whilst considering the allergies and intolerance's we had in our group. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! We will be looking you up again!

We discovered Rob & Brown Goose catering last year through Bark. From the outset his communication was very positive and helpful. He & his great team provided us with a celebration lunch, for my husbands 70th BD on 10th June this year. It was fantastic, the canapés were the best we have ever tasted and the meal was superb. --Plates all cleared! On the day, several unforeseen issues occurred in the house we had hired but Rob really saved the day and provided a wonderful meal. I cant thank him enough & would recommend him to anyone.

Rob and Gemma came to the holiday home we rented, neither him or us knew what facilities were available and produced an excellent 3 course meal.
While Rob was cooking Gemma laid the table, she also served wine (supplied by us) while we were eating and washed up.
I cannot praise Brown Goose catering enough.

Thank you very much to Brown Goose Catering for helping cater a surprise party for 50 that I organised. Throughout the planning, Rob, was on hand to guide us through menu's and help us ensure everyone's tastes were catered for. On the day, Rob was extremely professional and the food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Brown Goose Caterings services.

Second time I have had the pleasure of Brown Goose Catering's food, and every time it has been outstanding. Last nights meal was a huge success, Smoked chicken salad, Braised beef cheeks and Steamed rum & raisin pudding. The flavours were wonderful and the company of both Rob and Polly was informative, professional and fun. Would recommend to anyone, and if you see an advert for their pop up café go for it - you won't be disappointed. Everything is done for you and the kitchen was spotless when they had finished.

Rob and his team provided an excellent menu and superb food for our family celebration of our parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary in September. We could not fault the food and service on the night and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer who cares and is willing to work with you to ensure you get what you want and enjoy the occasion

Cannot rate Brown Goose highly enough.
Rob and his team give you a personal service from start to finish.
Attention to detail whilst keeping to your remit.
Great communicator and flexible enough to provide you with complete peace of mind.
Rob, Polly and Lisa came into a foreign kitchen and cooked up a wonderful 3 course meal for our parents Diamond Wedding anniversary. The food was Michelin star quality and beautifully presented. They left the kitchen spotlessly clean as if nothing had happened and were charming.
If your looking for a caterer so that you can relax and enjoy your party, look no further.
Our only complaint was that we couldn't take them home with us!
Thanks again guys,
Peter & Nicki Adams

What can I say!!! Delighted I am the first to review this excellent service provided by Brown Goose staff! Thank you head chef Rob Scott for making my little boy's birthday party a day to remember. Top quality materials, healthy and yummy at the same time, amazing presentation and imagination (these caterpillars still bring a smile to my face!) and the cake on the top!! Wow! The whole experience was absolutely fantastic!! Thank you so much for a great catering that even kids appreciated by leaving nothing behind!!

Review of Brown Goose Catering by Natasha Duff
5 Natasha Duff

Rob cooked a fantastic three course meal & canapés for our group, and made the evening super relaxed by serving and cleaning up everything up for us - an especially impressive feat, since a change of events on our part meant there was no waitress to help him out. The dishes were really high quality and generous in size. I would highly recommend Brown Goose, and Rob specifically.

Review of Brown Goose Catering by Karen Cole

Brown Goose Catering made our New Year celebration one we won't forget. They joined us in our cottage to cater for myself and my family. Rob and Polly made our evening very enjoyable serving up a delicious menu. Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup, Smoked West Country Venison, Sirloin of Dorset Beef with roasted vegetables, Raspberry and Tarragon Sorbet, Yoghurt and Vanilla Panna Cotta and to finish local cheeses. Everything was divine! An outstanding service that we would highly recommend and will of course use again in the future. Thank you Brown Goose!

Rob & Lisa did an amazing job for my mum's birthday. Rob had to deal with a variety of food intolerances, offering a wide array of dishes for each course which were very hard to choose between as they all sounded so yummy. The table was decorated beautifully & the food & service were amazing. We were made to feel so comfortable & poor Rob had to deal with our hire house facilities which weren't the best. Thanks you Rob & Lisa for a wonderful experience! X

Faultless!! The whole dining experience was unforgettable from Brown Goose which was perfect for my wife's 30th celebrations.
Everything was immaculately presented and the food was incredible. These guys are amazing and we would definitely recommend to anyone after a top class service... All 7 of us were raving about them after they left.

If you are looking for a chef to come to your home or holiday home, then look no further. Rob and his team (Brown Goose catering) are just totally amazing. From the canapés to the sorbet to the cheeseboard, the food quality, presentation and choice of menu is exceptional. Rob is a professional chef producing top quality food. We had two different hirings during our holiday hire on Norden Farm, Corfe Castle, both were celebrations for my husbands 50th. We had a family meal for 16 and a meal for 14 with friends. Both were top quality, thoroughly enjoyable and the evenings were memorable. It was such a treat to have the service and no washing up. Everything was spotless and cleared away after the meal service. Communication throughout the booking was reliable, clear and organised even down to small detail of keeping it a surprise! I would thoroughly recommend Rob and his team and will definitely use him again in the future. Thank you again Rob.

Fantastic, professional and an overall superb experience with Brown Goose for our hen night. Great communication with Rob from start to finish, and the food was equal to fine dining - absolutely outstanding!! The canapés especially were a huge hit with everyone. Rob met all of my requests including cocktail making, which Polly delivered brilliantly. And even though the weather was against us yesterday (torrential rain and high winds), they arrived on time. Would thoroughly recommend and use Brown Goose again.

We gathered this weekend in Dorset for a family birthday celebration. Rob was a fantastic chef, excellent food, beautifully prepared and presented. Polly’s table service was superb, and we didn’t have to lift a finger for anything. Everything was cleaned up and tidy when they left which was a real bonus. Would highly recommend these guys for your next event.

Thanks “Chef” for such a memorable evening!

I recently had Brown Goose cater for a hen party I had organised, we were staying in an air b&b house so not our own. Rob was fantastic as we had problems with the oven which we forewarned him about. In terms of booking, choosing menu and paying this was all very easy and flexible. Rob arrived bang on time with staff to help wait on us. Food came out again on time, we had a 5 course tasting menu, it was fantastic, our bride to be is vegetarian so we opted for a vegetarian feast with 1 fish course, it was better than any restaurant and such good value for money! Everyone in our party (7) were all blown away with the quality! Rob then cleared away and left the kitchen probably in better condition than when he arrived!! I would thoroughly recommend Brown Goose, he made us feel relaxed and provided a fun atmosphere in our own home!

We had Brown Goose cater for a 50th Birthday party last weekend in an AirBnb property. They were absolutely fantastic and I can't recommend them highly enough. Rob was very easy to communicate with, our waitresses, Lisa and Sophie, were brilliant and chef Paul cooked wonderful food. They were all very friendly and worked like troupers all evening. All our guests commented on how great everything was.Thanks to you all, you made our evening really special.

Brown Goose catered for my family at my (much older) brother's 50th Birthday last night. The food, presentation and service were all excellent and they left the kitchen looking immaculate. We will definitely be booking you again! Thanks for everything!

Brown Goose catered for our charity Burns night. We had about 70 and the food served was well presented and very tasty. Pudding was FAB! Staff went the extra mile to make our event a success. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend
them and will certainly use them again. Thank you chaps (especially for all that washing up).

Excellent food prepared quickly and served promptly. Was a real treat on our family holiday for the grown ups to sit down for a delicious 3-course meal in our holiday home - restaurant quality food with no need for babysitters.

Review of Brown Goose Catering by Elliott Sawyer

We used Brown Goose to cater for our Wedding Reception at Moreton Village Hall.
Rob was brilliant and gave us exactly what we asked for. Without any of the usual wedding price dump.
We asked for sandwiches, sausage rolls, quiche, cakes and scones. All the food was delicious. We could not fault any of it.
They catered wonderfully for all our food allergies and dietary requirements and the coeliacs said the gluten free options were spot on.
The food was plentiful and there was never any danger of there not being enough to go around.
We asked for the food to be out on tables when we arrived and it was presented beautifully on the tables with cake stands. It was a great compliment to a brilliant day.
Thank you so much

Elliott and Vicky
