Penelope was amazing! She created a great tasting menu with 9 courses. Great communication in organising this as a surprise for a birthday.
Food tasted lovely and was presented really well.
Served the dishes throughout the meal, giving us breaks between courses, we weren’t rushed at all. Excellent service, she even cleaned up after which was lovely. Will definitely use the Penelope for future dinner parties.

I booked Penelope for a meal for my fiancée’s 30th, for 6 people, and it was sensational from start to finish.

She was nothing short of impressive throughout, and nothing was too much trouble. Even a last minute change of plan to have the canapés served outside instead of on slate at the table couldn’t put her off course.

The food itself was incredible, and she talked us through the origins of each dish, after having helped me to put together the perfect menu in the first place.

We’ll definitely be using Penelope again, for both small and much larger gatherings. I honestly couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Penelope obviously did her best and show willingness to accommodate what is required and had some good ideas.
We stressed the party consisted of foodies and eat out frequently in France. It was a bit unusual as we wanted to
include all the favorite food of a member.
The starters were good; fois gras was a little underdone, the gazpacho - amuse bouche surpise was pretty but bland, the lamp cutlets was overdone when it should have been pink, the potato dauphinoise was nothing special. The apricot tarte tatin instead of being delicate was huge and spoilt by the red currant which did not go with the taste. Unfortunately the main course presentation was like a school dinner, all piled on one plate. Gormet French meal it was not but English meal purporting to be French was more apt and should be congratulated as such.

This is the 3rd time Penelope has catered for us and every time she manages to surprise and delight in equal measure. We have come to expect excellence and she over delivers every time. When we need catering, we frankly, don't bother looking anywhere else. More...

I would absolutely 100% recommend Penelope for any catering needs you have. I arrange a friends 50th BBQ a few weeks back and the food was absolutely superb! Sangria, Beautiful salads, a fillet of beef, the biggest prawns I've ever seen and all with lovely friendly service from Penelope and Hannah! To finish off we had an amazing pavlova with perfect seasonal fruit. We will definitely be booking Penelope again! More...

We had Chinese food home delivered for a birthday dinner and it was absolutely delicious! There were very generous amounts of food, the presentation was fantastic and the food (especially the dumplings) was just as good as being in a Chinese restaurant! Would definitely recommend!

I had the most wonderful experience using Penelope Evans Catering to recreate our wedding meal as a surprise to my husband for our 4 year wedding anniversary on 1 July 2020. We got married in Italy so naturally the food was completely divine and big portioned and we had selected a main dish that was a speciality in the area (Porchetta); Penelope was able to recreate this so beautifully and we joked that she may have actually done a better job with the Porchetta than our Tuscan wedding caterer! Everything was beautifully presented with dishes clearly labelled to pop straight into the oven or keep chilled such as the heritage tomatoes with burrata and freshly torn basil. A really special occasion made extra special with our amazing food provided by Penelope and her team! More...

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 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...

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.
