Dave and his team catered for our wedding in August this year and they did an absolutely excellent job. The food was fab, the staff were really helpful and Dave was really accommodating with all our requests. We would highly recommend them! Thank-you Dave and the team :) More...

OMG! How amazing! Had a home party with 103 guests and PoT provided all the catering we needed. The staff were professional and the chef was wonderful. We were able to enjoy the party and mingle with our guests in the knowledge that all was being taken care of. Will definitely use them again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend! Thank you so much More...

Very good company. Nothing is a problem. Dave the guy that runs it can’t do enough for you before hand and on the day. Very professional. I can’t recommend them highly enough. I’ve used him twice now. One for a BBQ and he done our wedding as well. Top company. More...

I have just had a little taster of their Brownies. Apparently I was supposed to be sharing with my husband, 2 each. After the first one I decided this was not a sharing platter but ‘all for me’ platter. Too good to share

We booked Dave to do the buffet at a Birthday party for around 30 people at home, and he certainly delivered! From setting up and the overall presentation, to the cutlery, plates and napkins, he did it all! It was a huge weight off our shoulders, it looked and tasted fantastic and everyone was extremely satisfied. 100% recommend and will be using again. Thank you so much Dave. :-) More...

We used plenty of thyme recently for a fireworks BBQ, everything from communication in emails to food on the day was brilliant. Will definitely be using again

Dave and the team pulled off a blinder for our wedding this weekend! We wouldn’t have changed a thing! I’ve been craving his pizzas ever since!

Just returned from a weekend away in Suffolk celebrating my husbands 40th birthday. We had a dinner party for 19 people on the Friday night and a BBQ garden party for 55 people on the Saturday. We used Plenty of Thyme for both nights, Dave & his team were amazing. The food was outstanding, the service fab and nothing was too much trouble. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the food was over the course of the weekend. I would definitely recommend Plenty of Thyme. More...

Thank you SO much to Dave and his staff for the absolutely amazing food on our wedding day. From planning, delivery on the day and the clear up after, you have been fantastic, professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for you or your staff - you really did go above and beyond. You allowed us to choose exactly what food we wanted for the BBQ and our desserts. The food was exceptional and everyone commented on how outstanding it was. When planning a wedding from scratch, you really worry about how everything will turn out. But we can 100% say that we did not worry about how the food would be, and this was because you are incredibly organised, easy to work with and an amazing chef! Thank you!!!! More...

I booked with Plenty of Thyme for my sisters 30th. Dave was fantastic in his correspondence leading up to the evening, dealing with everyone's dietary requirements. The night itself was fantastic and stress free with the most amazing food being served to us all. I would book again and recommend Dave to others! More...

Exceptional! Food prepared and cooked to an incredibly high standard, scallops were perfectly complimented by the black pudding and pea puree accompaniment. For main course we were treated to a melt in the mouth braised shin of beef. The salted caramel and prosecco infused rhubarb was the icing on the cake! Wish this was a weekly treat! More...
