Amazing service and delicious food by the team at Hardys catering. As a fellow wedding supplier, they were a dream to work alongside. Nothing was to much trouble.

Matt and Lou catered our wedding yesterday and it was just epic!! Literally the best experience in the world. We went to their beautiful home to try our wedding menu and everything was tailored to us perfectly. We had so many compliments on the food during the day and the street food from the big dub at night was just insane. I cannot recommend these guys enough xxx More...

Lou and Matt created a perfect menu for our wedding. They were both so warm and welcoming and listened to our ideas to help plan a menu to fit our personal taste. The service was exceptional and fitted perfectly with our festival themed wedding. Canapés were served to the ceremony site then we had an informal dining menu in the daytime, which all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone complimented our food. In the evening, street food was served from the big dub of love. Which was delicious. We can’t thank Lou and Matt enough for helping to make our wedding day special. James and Louise Gilston More...

It is an excellent choice for a range of occasions. I celebrated a milestone birthday last week and wanted some interesting food for my guests, served in a quirky way. The food was packed with flavour, nicely presented and provided a unique eating experience. I loved the food tasting evening too, this gave us the opportunity to try out a few dishes before we agreed on the menu for my party. Matt and Lou were great - they took ALL the stress out of catering for my event. More...

I cannot recommend Hardy's enough! They recently catered our wedding and the entire process was fantastic. Lou and Matt invited us for tasting and together we worked on a menu to suit. They were very welcoming, full of ideas and enthusiastic, as well as making delicious food!! We originally agreed on a veggie/vegan menu but as my hubby also went vegan after a while we contacted them and they were super helpful and made delicious changes to ensure it was all vegan. We really appreciate that they were so accommodating, and not only accommodated but also made it delicious! On to the wedding day and Matt and staff arrived at the venue and set up the Big Dub. The wedding was festival style and guests were able to order what and when they liked. The food was served quickly to order and given with a smile. They were a great addition to the wedding and made everyone feel really comfortable ordering and mixing and matching what was to offer. The food itself was super delicious and we have had so many positive comments and also some people very surprised it was all vegan, so thanks for helping us with that cause too! To conclude: super friendly, delicious food, many many thanks!! More...

Amazing from start to finish! Hardy's catered for our wedding and they did a fantastic job. Both the day time sharer platters and evening food served from the campervan were absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend them!! They also catered for gluten free no problem! Lovely couple and lovely food. Thanks for everything! Xx More...

Lou, Matt and the team catered our wedding this July, and everything was perfection, we can't really thank them enough! We wanted a Spanish themed menu and they came back with lots of ideas and suggestions, after an initial tasting we chose the menu that we felt best complemented our day. They were so helpful in creating the menu, advising and liaising with the hire company for the cutlery etc and of course the cooking of the food!

The unique part of their service is they also catered for our evening food but a totally different style of cooking, all served from 2 of their camper vans. For them to be able to offer a gourmet wedding breakfast then an evening offering of halloumi fries & burgers for the night was fantastic. All our guests loved the food too! We highly recommend their services to anyone and would love to use them again, just need another excuse for a big party . . . thanks again guys xx

Amazing food and friendly faces.
We were visited at our work place WNS Assistance for an afternoon of treats and we were not disappointed! Gorgeous main of three choices along with 2 sides AND a dessert. Our faces and tummies were full of happiness afterwards, not a single person in the office had a bad word to say about the Surf and Turf or Halloumi Flatbreads. Just gorgeous!! Thank you Big Dub of Love, please come back to see us soon! From all at WNS :) More...

Great menu and great food. Choices of vegan, veggie or traditional breakfasts. Nice decor. Had some amazing loose leaf teas: I enjoyed the headstarter (citrus caffeine boost) with a vegan breakkie whilst my hubbie enjoyed a flat white with a traditional breakkie. Both loved the drinks and the food. More...

We love Hardy's Kitchen! We found out about HK by a chance meeting & haven't looked back. HK were kind enough to accommodate us at Christmas time for our 'friends & kids' annual outing! Nothing was too much trouble, the food was super (the beer & wine wasn't bad either) and the staff were fab. The venue has a very relaxing vibe! Highly recommend whether a couple, family or a gang of friends! More...
