Jacks Kitchen recently catered for our wedding in May. What an incredible team that really went out of their way to create outstanding quality food with ethically sourced ingredients. We chose Jacks originally because they stood out from the rest in the way they communicated and because of their clear ethos. They communicated fantastically in the run up to our wedding and we felt reassured that we were going to be in safe hands. We had a laid back event and they really understood what we were hoping to achieve. They served up pop up Mamma D's pizza in the afternoon that people scoffed up and the most amazing curries in the evening. People are still telling me how much they loved the curry a whole month later. Di and Alex were so professional but warm and friendly at the same time. We would thoroughly recommend them. Do book them! More...
I highly recommend Jacks Kitchen! We got pop up pizza for our wedding two weeks ago-all three choices were absolutely delicious!! Our guests couldn’t get enough & are still complementing them today. The staff were super friendly and I was able to relax knowing my guests were well taken care of. Thank you so so much More...
Diane has a amazing team creating absolutely mouth watering foods that will make you wanna return for more. Next time we're over your way, we'll be dropping in for a bite to eat!
Delicious fresh food and lovely staff. Di and Alex did an amazing job and made my brother's 50th birthday bash perfect. Thank you !
We can’t rate Jacks Kitchen enough for their amazing food, flexibility with menus and professionalism. We hired them for a private party and it really made the weekend. As well as cooking an amazing meal they were friendly and cleaned up after themselves so all we had left to do was sit back and enjoy more wine thank you guys we really won’t forget that dinner ! More...
So delighted we chose Jacks Kitchen for my sons 21st Party! The food was superb and perfect for the event. I would highly recommend and will certainly be using them in the future
My Husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having this wonderful company cater at our Wedding Reception. We had their pizzas and I have never seen a queue quite like the one our guests made when the pizzas were ready to start being served. Every single person said how amazing the pizzas were and how polite the staff were too. The communication between this company and their customers is everything you want when planning your Wedding. Quick responses and nothing was too much for them, it was all hassle free! When they handed over our Nutella pizza on a personalised board I was lost for words, it was the icing on the cake to what had been the most perfect day. No one will be forgetting these lovely ladies in a hurry. We cannot say thank you enough, you were the BEST!!!!!!! Mr & Mrs Scotford xx More...
We recently used Jack's Kitchen for a team event, and every single person said how brilliant it was. They provided a BBQ with some of the best meat/produce I've tasted. The team were great fun to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for any event. More...
We were delighted with Jacks Kitchen, and more importantly so were the guests at my husband’s and son’s joint birthday barbecue. Great food, lovely service with a smile and pizzas to finish off the afternoon. We would be happy to recommend them. More...
This weekend I was lucky enough to experience the food that Jacks Kitchen create. It was the most delicious food that really did feel like a lot of heart, passion and warmth had gone in to it from such lovely people. Thank you :)
fantastic food tonight at cheltenhams street feast. great wall art , music and burgers to die for from jacks kitchen. tasted like I always imagined a burger will taste but never did untill tonight.
I met these guys at an event today where they were making wood fired pizza. AMAZING - great choice, home made pizza dough, all made to order and very tasty. Should of had a second one ! Highly recommend. � More...
The Thai menu that Jacks Kitchen did for our hen do at the weekend was great. Really delicious food, super friendly chefs and thoroughly enjoyed the butler in the buff that they organised! Would definitely recommend- Thanks again More...
I photographed a wedding last weekend catered for by Jacks Kitchen. You'll be hard pushed to find a more professional and fun team to cater for your wedding or event. A pleasure to work with and they fed & watered me well! More...
Thank you for the fantastic support at our charity event and helping us raise money for 'The Vale Community Hospital'. Carrie.
Absolutely amazing Thai food for my birthday weekend back in March in the Cotswolds. So good my friends and I still talk about it!! Difficult to find Thai food that good even in London - was a real surprise! Diane and her team are lovely and a pleasure to work with. The longhorn beef burger at the Sunday BBQ was just to die for as well. Will be seeing you again soon girls! Sorry about my late post :-) More...
We had the pleasure of eating several different pizzas from jacks kitchen today at the Gloucester food and drink festival. It makes my mouth water just thinking about the thin tasty base with flavours that make your taste buds tingle. The ladies ( Di and Alex) were both so lovely and easy to talk to. Didn't bat an eyelid when I asked if I could have a half and half pizza, even though they were run off their feet. The only disappointing thing was; when I went back for a 4th. They had sold out completely!!.
We will definitely be revisiting Jacks Kitchen to sample more of their fine food. Thanks ladies you made my day � More...
Jack's Kitchen recently catered an evening event for me to top a day's team building in a Cotswold's barn. It was for about 18 people and I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. Menu discussions were easy and I followed Di's suggestions which turned out to be perfect. The food was lovely and service cheery, informal and very efficient. I have already booked again. More...
We had an amazing event in our garden.
Delicious pizzas and wonderful people.
We (Sibling Distillery) have teamed up with Jacks Kitchen on several events are couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everything from the quality of the raw ingredients they use, to the menus they create and the people behind it, are second to none. We love them and what they do and will continue working with them where and whenever possible. Really refreshing to work with people who continually exceed your expectations. Thank you Alex, Di and Jack, you're awesome. More...
Whilst working security at Cheltenham Festival I had the pleasure of meeting the two wonderful women who worked tirelessly throughout the day and night making amazing Stone Baked Pizza's which may I repeat were simply delicious! Well done both! Hopefully see you at the big tent again next year! Xx More...
It's hard to put into words how amazing these ladies are! For something as special as your wedding, you want your caterers to be on board with your vision, well, Di and Alex did this and some! We had contacted other companies before and been met with a lacklustre response, then Di called me and was so enthusiastic that I totally trusted her from the out set. People told me to prepare for things going wrong or for it not to meet my high expectations but they were wrong! The food was amazing and if anything went wrong I certainly didn't know about it. The best thing was to see my guests having so much fun with the food and I know they will remember their meal at our wedding. (People smuggled cheese out in their pockets!) The girls in the team were amazing and made sure everyone was looked after from getting drinks, to clearing away and grabbing chairs for anyone who needed a sit down. I couldn't recommend Jacks Kitchen enough! More...
Well where to start.... Firstly I would like to say Di and Alex are the most amazing people not only to work with but in general! We were pretty organised when it came to sorting out suppliers, so we had booked Di over a year in advance, but thought that time Di was constantly in touch, made time to go through all of our niggles and worries, and made sure we felt at ease!
When It came to actually tasting the food, well it was fantastic, Di came to our home on a cold, wet and miserable night and it was like a friend had popped over to make us dinner. Instantly we knew we wanted Jacks Kitchen to cater our wedding.
I would just like to thank Di, Alex and the team for making our day extra special, the food was perfect and they worked around us to make sure everything was fantastic, Di knew exactly what we wanted! The girls were fantastic, polite, super tidy, friendly, with huge grins whilst waiting the tables (not easy when your running around hungry guests). We even had a cheeky beer with the team afterwards!
I would recommend Jacks Kitchen to anyone! They are lovely people as well as a very professional & organised business. They go the extra mile to make sure your event is perfect! We had a beautiful board made for us (to keep) and all the puddings had a lovely little message on them. Just fantastic, and we feel very lucky to have found you :) Keep up the good work!
Many congratulations on such a fab business!!!
Thank you again!
Lots of Love

We met the lovely Di and Alex with their pizza pop up last night. The ladies were super friendly and the pizzas were delicious - best pizza bases I've tasted in a long time!! Xx �
What a find! Thank you Diane and Alex for catering for us on my birthday! The food was awesome, better than any Thai restaurant I have been to. You and Alex were amazing and even made us cocktails! I can’t recommend you guys enough. Will definitely be using your services next time we are in the Cotswolds. � More...
What lovely people and delicious food! All very professionally served yet also friendly. The menu was even more tasty than it sounded and not one person was disappointed. All done with the minimum of hassle too - the team arrived to the rented house we were staying at, prepped and cooked the food, even bought us our champagne we had outside, set the table and then served us our dinner. They then washed up and cleared the kitchen and went home with the minimum of fuss - we didn't even notice them there! Amazing service well worth the money. Thank you! More...
Diane and her team came to our hired cottage and served us a delicious Thai feast at my sisters hen do a few weeks ago. Diane was so helpful in planning the menu (we had coeliac and lactose intolerant hens) and the waitresses on the night were super lovely. Everyone said how much they had enjoyed the dinner and it was such a treat to have a clean kitchen afterwards too! Thank you :) More...
Di's passion and enthusiasm for spectacular food and creating the ultimate bespoke occasion is second to none. No words can do justice to describe the culinary delights we sampled at the Gloucester Food & Drink Festival.
Many thanks to Diane and team for creating a wonderful picnic for our recent work event in Cheltenham. With only 2 days notice we were provided with lovely food, which was delivered and set up in such a friendly and helpful way. Thanks again for everything.
Di and Alex came to my daughter's bridal shower, within minutes a gazebo popped up and before long the barbecue was underway. The good was simply delicious, including fresh prawns with a hint of chilli, the best bangers ever and marinated chicken, served with scrummy delicious salads and chunky brownies to follow. We have them booked for two more events, would thoroughly recommend them. More...
The quality of the food and service offered by Jacks Kitchen was absolutely superb. I would highly recommend using them for a delicious, hassle-free catering experience!
Di and her team at Jacks kitchen catered for my 40th birthday celebration at a rented private house in Cheltenham. The food was truly outstanding, complemented by an exceptional service and certainly made it a night to remember for us. Highly recommended.
Food was fantastic, so professional and friendly. Would highly recommend. Thank you so much for cooking for us at Crest House, you helped make the evening great
Thankyou so much to Jacks Kitchen for catering my mums birthday party. The highlight for mum was the cheese and charcuterie boards. A selection of 8 local cotswold cheeses which were all described in detail. Alex and Diane the owners presented my mum with a bespoke handmade cheese board just before they left which they had inscribed her name on. Such a lovely touch. I would certainly recommend Jacks Kitchen they are fun, professional and the food was amazing. Thanks again from Stacy, Sharon, Steph More...
We booked a private chef and naked butler for my best friends hen do. Di, Alex and Dean arrived at the hired cottage and treated us to 3 Italian courses. As maid of honour it was huge pressure to impress, i needn't of worried the level of expertise, service and quality of food was outstanding. Would recommend 5/5 More...
Jacks Kitchen provided a great lunch for our Cotswold photo shoot! A selection of Salads, Lamb Tagine, Homemade flatbreads, Chicken, Chorizo & Tomato Summer Stew, Mini Lemon Meringues and Chocolate Brownies, Soft Drinks & Tea. They turned up promptly at the agreed time and created the most beautiful set up, with crisp table clothes and beautiful displays. The food was wonderful.We use a lot of catering companies in London that specialise in Photoshoot/Filming catering and the Value and Quality of service and produce we got from Jacks Kitchen could put them to shame! More...
I've eaten in several Michelin Star Restaurants in and around London and the Cotswolds and Jacks Kitchen deserve one. The level of cooking was outstanding. My family and i hired a cottage in Bibury and hired Diane and her team to come and cook for us. We chose the Fine Dining Menu which Diane made a few changes to on our request. I only have positive things to say about this Catering Company. We asked Diane and her team to come back the following day and cater for a BBQ, nothing was too much trouble. I am an ex officer from the Royal Artillery and served in Germany for many many years hence why i chose the German Carnivores BBQ. I was in sheer heaven. Once again thank you and the very best of luck. Charles Featherstone and family More...
A huge THANKYOU to Di & Alex for making our wedding so blooming fab! Ben and i loved it and the guests are still talking about the food we had. As you know we didn't want a formal sit down meal, you nailed it with the delicious bowls of food & sliders which accompanied our Champagne at stupid o' clock. My favourite was the Thai Red Duck Curry, it was out of this world. More...
I searched yell for a caterer in Cheltenham and i came across Jacks Kitchen Private & Event Catering.
