Reliable caterers, great food.

Karl took on this job in Cambridge, his kitchens are in Nottingham.
We had a 3 course dinner for my daughter's 21st at a venue called St Paul's Church in Hills Road. A beautiful place with plenty of space.
Karl brought his staff and produced food for 150. He was extremely pleasant, calm and everything worked out well. Brought China and cutlery, set tables and cleared. Staff were very efficient and pleasant.
We had a choice of dishes on a menu, which we choose beforehand, ie 2 starters, 2 main plus vegetarian option, 2 desserts. Also any other dietary was sorted ie gluten free, vegan, diary free. I would highly recommend Chef Karl Tyler.

Perfect for the occasion, the menu choice great

Communication from enquiry onwards was superb, menu choice was fantastic. Disappointed that the chef I spoke with was actually not the chef that came and at no point was this mentioned however the chef we had was very good. Only let down was that the plates were cold and therefore food only warm. Easily rectified would hire Gareth again. Thank you

Great communication and delicious food!

Karl had great communication from the start. He designed a 1920’s themed menu for my party taking into account a few different dietary requirements, and accommodating last minute changes in the numbers. His Chef Dave arrived early, delivered delicious food perfectly on time and left the kitchen cleaner than when he arrived! Would definitely recommend!

Spectacular food!

Karl created an amazing Mediterranean tapas/ bowl food menu for my 40 birthday party. From the get go he was professional
and very quick to answer any questions. He worked closely with us to finalise the exact menu we wanted and the food on the night more than delivered- it was fantastic!! Everyone raved about it and it made the night! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karl.

Three course Birthday Celebration Meal.

Chef Karl was a Super Hero! He was extremely well organised and very well prepared. In the time that we drank a couple of cocktails he single handedly brought everything into the kitchen and produced our starters, then managed to cook and serve 13 piping hot meals; the whole evening flowed perfectly and each course was served and cleared away efficiently. The food was divine, not only did it all taste delicious, it was also beautifully presented. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Lovely guy and great food!

Karl is a lovely genuine guy who provided us with an amazing meal. Very friendly but somehow invisible at the same time! We have an open plan kitchen/dining area but it was like he wasn’t there until another fabulous dish arrived!
I would definitely recommend Karl for any event and wouldn’t hesitate to have him cater for us again

Excellent food, beautifully presented.

Karl produced an excellent lunch in a highly professional manner. He was most responsive to my specific demands and very creative in his own ideas. His interaction with my guests was just right as he served the food. His timing and punctuality were first class. A most enjoyable experience that I would certainly repeat.

Such good food!

Great service from start to finish!

We hired karl for a hendo we had at the Bringewood in Ludlow so to start with Karl and his team were travelling 2hrs to get to the venue. The menu we had come to a decision on over the weeks leading up to the hendo was such good value for money for what we recieved baring in mind it was 3 courses for 22 people! Karl was very flexible on the menu and price point we wanted to so this was very helpful having never arranged a caterer before. On the night the food was all tasty and very astheticly pleasing and to top it off the guys left the kitchen immaculate after, so no need to worry about any tidying or dishes!
Highly recommended
Many thanks!

Jill and hendo
