Chris catered our wedding at Yeldersley Hall on 29.12.18. From the start he was so helpful in helping us plan exactly what we wanted. On the day the food was delicious and plentiful - it was important to us that our guests did not go hungry! The staff, Zoe in particular, were so helpful and friendly. Much more than a catering company, Chris helped with many aspects of the day. Thank you Chris and your team for helping to make our wedding so wonderful ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

A group of us went to the Night of Fine Food at Yeldersley Hall on Saturday and we were all blown away by the amazing food! It was creative, beautifully presented and most importantly very tasty. Chris catered for 2 vegans in our group with each of the 7 courses just as well thought out as the main menu. I couldn't recommend Chris enough for event catering and can't wait until I get the opportunity to eat his food again. More...

Chris prepared a delicious dinner for my husband's 40th at Birdsgrove House in Ashbourne and I couldn't recommend him more highly. We worked together to create a bespoke menu and Chris and his team arrived on the day and executed it all perfectly. They were all extremely professional and friendly, left the kitchen even tidier and cleaner than how they found it and most importantly the food tastes as good as it looks in pictures! Thank you so much for a very memorable evening More...

Chris came out to Hurdlow Grange to cater for our wedding a couple of weeks ago. In very challenges circumstances (blown fuses and almost no space) he gave us and our guests an incredible 3 courses. It really elevated a brilliant event to something fantastic. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks you! More...

Well Chris, what can we say. You were absolutely amazing every step of the way. We feel privileged that our wedding at Yeldersley Hall was your first on your own. The food and service were both top class from start to finish. You and your team ensured our day went so smoothly and we can't thank you enough for that. I would highly recommend you to anyone planning a wedding. I only wish we could do it all again! More...

Chris made a 5 course menu for my sister's hen party of 13 girls. He was very professional and created the most amazing menu. The food was beautifully presented and tasted incredible! I would highly recommend him! I would give 10 stars if I could. Also his waitresses were lovely and very attentive. Thanks Chris More...

Chris created a menu for our wedding and it was fantastic. It was so lovely to be able to design the menu based on our travels and we were able to talk about what would work together best. On the day, everything was beautiful and having two waiting staff helped the food and drinks run smoothly. I didn’t expect the waiting staff to pour the drinks that we bought but having them serve the prosecco on arrival and the wine throughout dinner was excellent. Thank you Chris and your team for giving us really memorable food on our special day. More...

Chris and his wonderful team came and catered my hen weekend for 30+ ladies and it was nothing short of amazing. Having worked with Chris myself in the past it was such a joy to see him again 8 years later and I knew we were definitely in for a really special meal. Everything from the canapés to the pudding was just stunning, especially the sticky toffee pudding which was even better than I remembered it being back in 2010. I can’t thank him and his brilliant team for all their hard work, it made the evening so special. Could not recommend this awesome group enough. More...

We attended Chris' pop up restaurant at yeldersley last night for a 5 course tasting menu, it was delicious and great value for money! Food was amazing, service was fab and yeldersley was beautiful as always. We got married at yeldersley and it was lovely to be able to go back and reminisce. We met Chris afterwards who was very friendly and warm and we will definitely book to eat his tasty food again! More...

Absolutely fantastic! Chris and the team catered for my dad’s 70th birthday for 25 members of the family in the Peak District at the weekend. Such professionalism from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. The staff were friendly and what teamwork - serving drinks, the gorgeous fresh food and clearing away. Couldn’t have asked for more. He may have to come to Leeds!! More...

Chris catered for our wedding on the 19th August for over 50 guests. From the very beginning, Chris's professionalism and passion shone through and he worked with us to build a menu which was truly perfect for us. Once we agreed on the menu, Chris offered us a taster night so we could taste our various canapes and 3 courses ahead of the day to check if we were happy with our choices / see if we wanted to tweek anything. However, as it was so delicious, we didn't want to change anything. On the day itself, Chris's team were so professional and the service was impeccable in terms of pace and friendliness. All of the food from the canapes to the 3 course wedding breakfast was phenomenal (presentation, taste and temperature) - it was even better than the tasters we had! Everybody raved about all of the food (on the day and following days after the wedding) and no one went hungry! We couldn't recommend Chris highly enough for quality, value for money and service. We had no regrets in booking Chris and would recommend him for any catering event! More...

We had such a great evening when Chris catered for us during our stay at Upper Moor Farm Cottages. The food was delicious and it was a lovely treat for all our guests. We had lots of choice of menus and Chris was happy to discuss a more bespoke menu with me. We chose to have the meal served and Chris and his team were so professional and friendly. They knew the kitchen well and we didn't even know they had been there afterwards as it was so left so tidy. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Chris again and would highly recommend. More...
