Albert was amazing

The service received from this company was amazing and very simple. Albert came on time and was very prepared and new what he was doing. He also made recommendations on things to add to the drinks just to make it extra special for my guest. Albert was extremely polite and professional and even stayed an hour extra as he saw things started becoming very busy. My guest loved his service and as he was leaving the Dj and guess all have him a round of applause for his service. Thank you very much!

Job well done! Worked very well under pressure.

The staff who attended our company Christmas party event were excellent. Soffiyah, Fatima and Jose did such an incredible job.

A gas leak at the venue 30 minutes before the start meant we had to move the entire party over half a mile away, and all three of the staff happily moved to there as well and didn't let it faze them at all.

They not only did an excellent job in organising and passing around the food, but also helped to clean up as they went. They were great and we would highly recommend them to others and use them again for future events.

Great Communication and Value for Money

When initially looking at suppliers I picked Capital People because Chantelle had the best communication and her overall manner was very friendly and helpful.
The waiter, however, did turn up late about 15-20minutes late. I laid out the food with their labelled food bags for him to see what everything was. It took him a while to get his head around it as I caught him carrying a plate of chorizo arancini with a vegetarian food flag on it. I had to keep an eye at the beginning but he got the hang of it then everything was fine.
Aside from this, I would definitely recommend and would hire again. The communication is great and it is good value for money

Great service

I hired one staff member from Capital People to man the drinks table at my book launch. He arrived punctually, was very professional and helped keep the evening running smoothly. He helped the bookshop staff clean up after the event and gave me peace of mind. Thank you, Capital People, for organising it.

I could relax and enjoy the event

At a private lunch party for 14 at my home Abou and Elayne quickly understood what was needed. Abou served the wines very professionally, dishes were delivered to the 2 tables and collected discreetly and their whole manner was calm pleasant and highly professional. They completed almost all the washing up and left the kitchen clean and tidy. I was extremely happy and satisfied with their work and commend them highly. I will use Capital People again

Excellent service

I found the Company to be attentive and listened to what I needed. The person they sent to help me with my party, Abu, was all round excellent, could not have been better. I would definitely come back to the Company again.
My only caveat is that I think they should pay the London Living Wage not just guarantee they pay above the national minimum wage. After all Capital People should pay the going rate for the Capital!
I for one would then not mind paying a little more for the service.

Response from Capital People
Hi Mary, Thank you very much for your kind review and I am really pleased that you were happy with the staff. I just wanted to clarify the pay rates; we pay all our staff well above the National Living Wage, not the National Minimum Wage. We pay this to all staff regardless of age or gender. Kind Regards Chantelle

Really great service

The three waiting staff were all charming, efficient, friendly and gave our party a very professional feel so we are very grateful for having them. It was really easy dealing with them and everything went very smoothly. I will use them again.
