We booked for our wedding last September (only just getting round to the reviews). Everyone enjoyed the food and staff were friendly. I think all our guests appreciated a normal, tasty and filling meal instead of the usual food you get at weddings, it went down a storm. Highly recommend. More...
I hired Dodsons for a milestone party, fantastic food and service to match at very reasonable prices. My friends are still talking about how good the fish and chips were now. Thank you!
I hired Dodsons Fresh Catch for my 40th birthday party on 6th Feb I can honestly say they were some of the best fish and chips that I have ever had. Really impressed everybody at the party. Massive thanks to you all. More...

Just a quick thank you for providing the best fish and chips at my 40th last weekend! All the guests have commented on how delicious they were too!
Would definitely use Dodsons again for any future events and would recommend you to friends and family!
Thanks again x More...
My parents had an anniversary party at the weekend and wanted something different so we found Dodsons online and decided to go for that. It was very easy to organise with the owners, Andy and Paul who served us on the day were really professional and arrived well in advance to get set up and everyone said the food was lovely! I would definitely recommend! More...

Fab fab fab We hired Dodsons for our wedding food...... Brilliant service both professional and friendly (Andy and Paul).
Everybody is still complementing how fresh the food was and how generous the portions were,
Our veggie guests were equally as pleased with their food.
The communication up untill the day was spot on too.
Would definitely recommend Dodsons fresh catch to anyone who is thinking of having fish n chips for an event . More...
So pleased that we chose (simply from an online search & their excellent reviews) Dodson's Fresh Catch to cater for our birthday party, in a field, in Suffolk, last weekend. From the first contact they were friendly, helpful & efficient. Will & Katherine arrived, set up & prepared our supper undaunted by the torrential rain. Our guests are still talking about their delicious fish and chips - 'best ever', 'wonderful', 'tasty', 'crispy', 'generous portions'. I would not hesitate to recommend them - service with a smile. More...
A huge thank you for catering for our wedding on 2nd June. The service was excellent from initially enquiring to the day of the wedding. All our guests commented on the quality of the fish and chips. Would definitely use Dodson's again for another occasion and couldn't recommend you highly enough! Thank you!! More...
Mark and Jade came to cater at our wedding celebration in Knutsford.
I had researched a number of companies on the internet and felt that they offered the best fit for us. We communicated via email and they help us choose the menu for our event, they were prompt to answer any queries we had and made the process a smooth one.
One the day they arrived in good time and set up. They worked with us to ensure that service was prompt - and we really had nothing else to do apart from join the line for service! Our guests commented that it was some of the best food that they had ever had at a wedding.
Thanks to Mark and Jade for exceeding my expectations - we would not hesitate to use your service again, or recommend. More...

I can't praise Dodson's enough for the fantastic service they provided for our wedding this weekend. We had just over 150 guests who were all served in just over an hour! The fish n chips were gorgeous and everyone was commenting on how good they were. Would highly recommend using Dodson's. Thanks for making our day even more special. X More...
Dodson’s catered our wedding and did an amazing job! Great fish and chips and professional service.
Used Dodsons for our evening reception food at our wedding. Us and all the guests absolutely loved it! Easy experience from start to finish, would highly recommend and would definitely use again if needed! Thank you x
Can’t thank you guys enough for providing such amazing service & food for our wedding in May.
Everyone commented on how the fish & chips were actually the best they had tasted, a few guests don’t usually like fish & chips and thoroughly enjoyed them!
We would highly recommend you and already have done! More...
You won't be disappointed if you hire Dodson's to cater for your special event. They provided the food for my husband's 50th birthday party last night and it was all gorgeous. All our guests commented with many saying it was the best they'd tasted and one described it as nectar from heaven :-)". Nothing was too much trouble and the team did a fantastic job from the start of the booking process right through to an absolutely brilliant night. More...

We used Dodsons for our wedding in July of this year. The process leading up to the day was painless and well organised and they were happy to deal with our guests dietary requirements.
The day itself the service was prompt and accurate. The food was delicious, fresh and light and was thoroughly enjoyed by everybody present
In short, I would happily recommend the team if this is something that you are looking at More...

'I wanted to say thank you so much for coming to Corby and providing us with fish & chips for our wedding last year, the feedback we had was fantastic from our guests and the food tasted excellent (hubbie still won't let me forget that he didn't get sausage & chips lol) thank you again for everything from the continuous support and contact leading up to the day and on the day arriving in plenty of time to set and dealing with the massive crowd of guests, the staff were very friendly and professional throughout, I will certainly recommend you to people'
We hired Dodson's Fresh Catch fish and chip van for our evening food at our wedding reception in April 2016 and have to say they were possibly the most delicious fish and chips we have had!!!! They arrived in good time to set up and get everything organised and were ready to go bang on the planned time, all the staff were so lovely and friendly and were very fast on service too. We all said the portions were very generous!! We were a little worried being a van it may have been a bit small but they were bigger than what you normally get from the fish and chip shop!! We bought the gold package and everybody got a side of curry or peas too which were also delicious. Plenty of condiments set out nicely on a table next to the van and everybody was feeling full and happy!! I didn't sample it myself but the vegetarian option was also said to be delicious! Highly, highly recommended to anybody wanting efficient, friendly and delicious catering at a function and smiling faces at the same time. yum yum!!! More...
Dodson’s provides the catering for our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier with the service or food. Communications were clear and prompt from the outset, very easy to deal with. On the day the guests loved the food and commented on how delicious it was. Do your guests a favour and avoid the chicken dinner, book Dodsons instead! More...

Dodsons were fantastic - punctual, tidy, hassle-free and the food was great! My party guests absolutely loved them!
I booked Dodson's for a joint 40th birthday party and was so impressed by the service. The whole process from booking the event to eating the fab fish and chips was really easy - a professional and friendly team who were really focused on making the celebrations run smoothly. Thank you to everyone involved.
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding day so amazing! We received so many compliments about the food and the fact there were people coming back for seconds spoke volumes. The food was amazing, it was just what we wanted and your service was very professional and efficient, we will definitely recommend you to others! More...
Just wanted to say thanks for providing the fish and chips at our wedding. We didn't think that our Indian guests would prefer the fish and chips and that our English would prefer the curry... But that's how it worked out. Your fish and chips were a complete success, everyone loved them... Even my dad was impressed. THANK YOU ' More...
Just to say a massive thank you for all your hard work at our wedding on Saturday. The food was absolutely fantastic. We like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of fish & chips (!), and we can honestly say that yours are the best we've ever tasted.We had lots of positive comments about them from our guests too. The generous portion sizes definitely went down well, and the fact that the food was so fresh and hot made a real impression. I loved how light the batter on the fish was, and how the chips weren't at all greasy - and yet, they still made for a suitably decadent wedding breakfast! Lots of people commented on how yummy the ice cream was too (the chocolate one was a particular hit).Last but not least, thank you for your professionalism and excellent communication. All my emails over the last year or so have been met with speedy responses, and I was never worried that you'd let us down in any way. The speed of service was also impressive, particularly considering we had 140 guests on 17 tables. You run a well-oiled machine! More...
