Penelope recently catered a 40th birthday party for 40 people at our home.

The service was impeccable from start to finish. Accommodating and understanding, Penelope worked closely with me to fine tune the menu - offering guidance based on her experience, our budget and personal preferences. The menu that she created was delicious, perfectly cooked and discreetly served by her professional and friendly waitstaff.

Penelope was a true asset on the night, continually tracking the food consumption and arranging platter timings so that wastage was minimal. She left our house tidy, and our guests satisfied.

I would not hesitate to use her catering services again should the need arise.

Penelope Evans Catering was and amazing experience from start to end.

We used her services for the first time in April for one of our biggest events of the year. She was quick to respond to my initial enquire and on speaking to her really understood my requirement and what I was trying to achieve. She followed it up with some amazing menu options catering for every dietary requirement.

The food look amazing and was presented well, you can tell Penelope takes pride in what she does while being flexible enough to make adjustments to ensure her client is happy The flavours were incredible with everything seasoned well and it was obvious everything was fresh. We had raving reviews from all 180 plus guest who ate on the day.

We have since had Penelope cater a further 2 events / meeting and have all ready booked her for one more up and coming event.

I would highly recommend Penelope Evans Catering

We initially spoke to Penelope on the basis of her excellent past reviews and were encouraged to find her friendly, understanding of what we were hoping for and flexible.

On the night of our party, Penelope and her team arrived promptly, set everything up with great professionalism and coordinated all of the serving of the food and drinks in a friendly and super courteous manner. We were very happy with the whole process.

The canapés, main course and deserts were all delicious and much enjoyed. They also cleared up afterwards very efficiently.

We were very happy with all of our interactions with Penelope and her team, would use them again, and would highly recommend them.

We used Penelope Evans Catering for our wedding recently.Prior to the occasion Penelope patiently went over the options for the menu and the timings. We had decided on a Middle Eastern Option and were delighted with her suggestions.
On the day of the party we were very impressed with the professional way both she and her staff organised both the drinks and the food.Everybody congratulated us for the beautiful food which I was able to pass on to Penelope.Well done to her and her team for helping make our day so lovely.

We could not recommend Penelope enough. The food is superb (all our guests are still saying how good it was over a month later), her staff were brilliant and Penelope herself just made the whole experience delicious. We had a dry hire venue so needed to get everything in, all of which we did through Penelope. Our worries that we'd bitten off more than we could chew melted away once we started talking to Penelope as she guided us through the process expertly without taking over allowing us to make it our own but with perfect touches. If you want incredible food, service and a top notch team then Penelope is the perfect choice. Thanks Penelope! Toby and Jo x More...

I cannot recommend Penelope and her team highly enough. She gave fantastic advice before the event and did an amazing job on the day which meant that my mother and myself could enjoy my father’s memorial without any hassles or pressures. People commented on how smoothly it was run and how good the food was. I sincerely hope that I will be able to use Penelope’s services again under happier circumstances. More...

Penelope catered for our lunch party of 30 on a really hot day in July and she did an amazing job. We were impressed at how efficiently she answered our initial enquiry, through to helping us decide on our menu, and on the day, dealing with our tiny kitchen with no worktop space and miniscule oven! Penelope puts her heart and soul into her food which really comes across. Every thank you note we received from our guests after the party mentioned the great food. Harry, who served food and drinks (but also helped Penelope in the kitchen and cleared up after the party), worked extremely hard and made up a superb team that we would recommend wholeheartedly. More...

Thank you so much for this I will let Harry know of your comments. It was a joy to cater for you.

Can’t recommend Penny highly enough. This is clearly not just a job for her: it’s a passion. She met me before my party to scope out the venue and see what was needed. I knew immediately that I was in safe hands. The food lived up to my expectations, it looked and tasted delicious and she didn’t stint on the portions. Everyone raved about it and wanted her number so don’t delay . . . book her now! More...

Penelope’s food is delicious! I organised a surprise birthday party for my husband and all our guest had been amazed by the quality of it. Penelope had been very reactive to find the right menu proposition in my budget, always answering emails quickly and even helped me delivering the food late to make a full surprise and helped and explained evrything when she arrived. Thanks again and I highly recommend her to anyone! More...

I found Penelope Evans Catering when searching online for a caterer to help with a small party for my mum's 70th birthday. I contacted a few caterers online and Penelope replied the most promptly, following up with a call shortly afterwards. She seemed to understand well from our initial call the type of food and event we were looking for and at a reasonable price.

The menu suggestions were lovely and she was very helpful in coming up with good alternatives if any dishes were not what we wanted, while also making great suggestions for the kids menu. On the night, it was a great success - the food looked and tasted fabulous and my mother (the birthday girl) was amazed that she had made all her favourite foods! I would definitely recommend Penelope to others.

Penelope's food for our Christmas Tree Festival dinner was excellent. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was. Penelope catered to our budget which was extremely helpful for us and that did not mean we got small portions, quite the opposite, the portions were very generous. She also ensured that we got exactly the dishes we wanted. The food was cooked off-site as we have a small kitchen and she loaned us her chafing dishes which were incredible and ensured we had perfectly cooked, hot food. Penelope herself is a delightful lady and a real pleasure to work with. We look forward to inviting her back to cater for another event. Very highly recommended. More...

Penelope was great from the start. Very professional, friendly and accommodating. We used her services for our daughters wedding for 150 guests in a Marquee.

After an initial discussion Penelope put together some ideas and further recommendations before offering us a taster session. Always positive and listened carefully to our requests. Up front about costings, she made alternative suggestions within our budget when needed which was greatly appreciated. Little extras she included made the food even more appealing.
The food was superb. Many of the guests commented on the quality of the freshly cooked meditteranean themed dishes.
On the day her staff were fantastic, coping well with tbe difficulties of a small catering tent., helping out with extras and adapting to the wedding guests needs.

Penelope and her team helped us create a wonderful wedding day. I can strongly recommend her services to anyone wanting a wedding caterer.

I was really struggling to find someone to cater for our garden party and found Penelope on Bark.

What a find! - from the moment I spoke to her she put my mind at rest. She's really friendly and accommodating. I didn't have a huge budget, but she reassured me what I had was ample.

The food was outstanding and presented in huge bowls, with pretty edible flowers. The rice salad was wonderfully exotic! and we have plenty left over in the freezer.

Penelope and her assistant Helen were both extremely helpful and made sure I had absolutely no worries where the food was concerned. They both went over and above to make sure everyone was happy and I cannot recommend them enough!

Thank you both very much, I will certainly be booking you again if I have another party!

With best wishes,

Lynda xx

Q&A

We do not have a signature dish as all the food is tailor made so we enjoy catering for all aspects and requirements our clients require. Food is our passion and we love to provide a service that is personal. We cater from 2 to 500, for both private and corporate clients.

We like to speak or email the clients to find out exactly what are their likes and dislikes and ensure that we try and capture all their requirements and requests this means that the event and menu is tailor made for them. Tastings can be arrange and we like to do these in an informal manner where the prospective client feels that they are being looked after in a personal and professional manner

We love all aspects of our job from preparing the food to serving the delights to guests, food and service are our passion.
