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. Her advice was invaluable!

If you want incredible food, service and a top notch team then Penelope is the perfect choice.

Thanks Penelope!

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.

Penelope Evans Catering replied:
Ana thank you so much. It was a beautiful and emotional day, where the music brought tears and goose bumps to my staff and I.

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.

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

We were so lucky to find Penelope! She catered for my party last Saturday, we had limited space so opted for canapes and they were completely delicious and lots of them!

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!

Penelope Evans Catering replied:
Thank you so much for such lovely comments kind regards Penelope

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!

Penelope Evans Catering replied:
Philippine you were an amazing client thank you what a surprise ☺

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 Evans Catering replied:
Diana thank you for your review it was our pleasure catering for you. Wishing you well

I contacted Penelope Evans via her web page and she promptly answered my submission, we spoke a few times on the telephone with regards to my requirements fora surprise canape party for my mother in law.

Everyone commented on the food and the service her staff provided. The food was delicious and very pleasing also to the eye. Her staff were very attentive and ensured that all the guests were professionally looked after, having knowledge of any issues relating to dietary requirements and allergies.

We can not recommend Penelope Evans Catering enough our party was for approximately 80 guests and no one left hungry

Review of Penelope Evans Catering by Janice  Pond
5 11/12/2017 Janice Pond

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.

Review of Penelope Evans Catering by Jane Hall
5 23/10/2017 Jane Hall

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.

Review of Penelope Evans Catering by Lynda Robson
5 23/06/2017 Lynda Robson

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

Penelope was really great. Firstly she came round to discuss my needs and ensure the menu was personalised and fitted with the atmosphere of my party. The food was amazing and plentiful. All my guests commented on how good the food was. On the day her and her waitresses were so helpful, personal but unobtrusive, which felt really natural. Loved it and would definitely use again and recommend her to anyone.
