We had sweet as a nut cater for a family christmas gathering and it was perfect. Food was delicious, everyone was full and happy :) they even catered for myself and my son with dairy and soya allergies and made the most amazing ice cream especially for us! Service was prompt and the team was friendly and tidy. I would 100% use Matt and the team again and would recommend for anybody looking for caterers (as a side note I’ve also since discovered that they catered at my hen do [a bbq on Bournemouth beach] back in 2016 and I remember that food being spot on as well!!)

We had Sweet As A Nut cater for our dads 60th birthday in our lodge at Sandy Balls. The whole service from the initial communication through to the meal were faultless. The food was great and the lodge was spotless when they left. Would highly recommend Sweet As A Nut. Thank you so much More...

We booked Sweet As A Nut for a birthday celebration whilst self-catering on holiday, liaising with Matthew and Lottie throughout the process. A meal for 6 adults and 2 children.We worked through menu selection in advance and made our choices from across a couple of their ranges. They provided some additional options to suit our tastes. A couple of gaps in communication during the planning (due to other client commitments) but we had allowed enough lead time so no issue.It was a bit daunting not knowing who was going to arrived (and indeed if they would actually turn up). But on the day Matthew and his assistant arrived on time and set to work quickly, efficiently and quietly in the kitchen leaving us to enjoy our pre dinner drinks (self provided). They had brought everything they needed (except a freezer for the ice cream but we had space) and did not disturb us at all. The meal was served at the desired time and professionally done, checking in on each course midway through. The food itself received no complaints....it was well cooked and tasty. And come the end of service the kitchen was left cleaner than when they arrived.In house dining was a great option for a private celebration, and saved us finding a babysitter for the baby. And if I’m honest £260 for a customised 3 course meal for 6+2 was far better value than I had expected. Would for sure use the team again if we were in the area. More...

We hired Lottie and the team to put on a cooked breakfast spread and a three course, Greek dinner for a stag do. The food was amazing, they brought everything they needed with them and were incredibly flexible when making arrangements. It can be a bit daunting booking this kind of thing, but this is definitely restaurant quality food in your home. Get booking now. More...

Absolutely fantastic service from the moment they arrived to when they left. Sweet as a nut catered a BBQ for our hen party, and the food was absolutely amazing, a good amount of food for a fantastic price, and not only that, but they couldn't have been nicer throughout as well. I would highly recommend them and if we are ever Bournemouth way again, I will definitely use them again! Thank you!!! Kate More...

We had a great evening when Matt came to cook our 3 course meal for 11 at the holiday cottage we had rented. He arrived earlier than expected to set up with everything ready to go - no hassle and no fuss, he just got to it. Dinner was served promptly at the time that we had chosen and all 3 courses were great. The fact that we had a vegetarian in the group was no problem at all as we were able to choose an extra starter and main. We can't thank Matt enough for helping to make our weekend an amazing experience and would definitely book a meal again if we're back in the area! More...

Wow, what can i say! these people were very accommodating when our circumstances changed, they custom made a menu to fit our needs, it was easy and hassle free to book with them, thanks Lottie, they came and made a 3 course meal at the house that we rented for the weekend, they arrived with plenty of time, and they made the whole afternoon a relaxing one,they even took care of the washing of the pots, and tiding up, nothing was too much trouble, Thanks Matthew and Lyn, its a shame we didn't live closer because i would defiantly use them again, for anybody that is within their area i would have no doubt in recommending them to you! Thanks again guys, it was a beautiful event. More...

We went in for fish and chips today and Matt came back especially to cook for us and it was delicious, by far the best fish and chips we've had for years. We only moved to Bournemouth 4 weeks ago but they have all made us feel very welcome. There are a lot of cafes in Bournemouths Wimbourne Road but this is the only one we go to because of the friendly service. Would highly recommend to anyone. More...

We used Matt and Lottie for two nights on our weekend in Bournemouth.

I liaised with Matt prior to our arrival to agree on a menu for the Friday night BBQ and the Sunday night three course dinner. Matt provided so many ideas for both menus and listened to what we wanted. He was always quick at responding and answered all of my questions clearly.

Friday night we had a BBQ on the beach with burgers, sausages, chicken, halloumi & veg skewers, coleslaw and marshmallows. The food was so tasty and cooked lovely. Little touches like serving the bride to be first really made our night special.

Sunday night we had an Italian themed 3 course dinner with 2 choices of starters, 3 mains and 2 desserts. Every plate that was served looked and tasted delicious. We had comments from our group that particular dishes were the best they'd ever eaten!

On both nights, the food was outstanding and the service alongside it was fab.

I would recommend Matt & Lottie in a heartbeat. They really made our weekend extra special with their professionalism and friendliness. Thank you both for a great experience xxx

I am someone who usually does lots of research before booking any type of event, but this was a last minute booking. I get anxious about things like this , but I need not have been. Matt responded quickly to our request and put together some very good ideas , he was versatile in adjusting the menu to suit everyone in the group. We had four children aged five and under so tongue in cheek I asked if he could come early and provide a separate meal for them too, which he did. This was such a plus as it meant us adults could enjoy the evening without having to worry about the little ones. His lovely wife Charlotte served the food to the children and they behaved better for her than for us !
The food lived up to our expectation , not only was it very tasty but it was beautifully presented.
The kitchen in our holiday let was left clean and tidy so we could enjoy the evening.

We hired Matt on the 15 August 2016. It was somewhat of a last minute decision to have a dinner party. Matt single-handedly prepared a full dinner menu for 30 guests. He came with all the raw ingredients and whipped up a spectacular meal all in under 2 hours; potatoes, meat, chicken, fish, vegetables. The works. He was efficient and polite. Thank you for extremely prompt service and delicious food! Highly recommended! More...

Matt came to a house in Bournemouth we hired through AirBnB. The whole experience was exceptional from the initial contact through to the food and service. Really pleased with how quickly Matt responded to all enquiries. We chose a menu and got everyone to make their selections in advance. What we paid was comparable with eating out, but food was amazing quality and service was professional and friendly. To have a private chef is a real experience. Would recommend Matt and would definitely used again. More...

Matt was very easy to work with before the event and provided a great range of menus with lost of choice. He arrived on time and handled everything, I didn't have to think about a thing. The food was absolutely delicious and came out hot and all together! The waitress was very nice and I would say we received a much better service than you will get in most restaurants. They cleared everything away afterwards and I have to say overall they gave a top quaity service. More...

We find the best way to create a perfect menu is to listen, listen to the clients needs and ideas and work together to make sure they receive the best service possible.

We love that each day is different because each client is different. Working with our clients is never boring and it allows us to give great service and use our creativity.

Our family inspired us to start our business after catering for a family event and seeing how much joy food can bring to a private celebration, it made us realise that we wanted to continue long term.

We feel that we are an open, friendly, family business that puts our clients before anything else. We are here to please you with amazing communication, fantastic food and exceptional service.
