Fantastic service

The Food Van supplied us with great fish and chips (and accessories). They arrived on time even though experiencing some road works, the food was served on time and everyone enjoyed their food. Cannot recommend highly enough.

fantastic service and people

The service and quality of food was excellent and helped the party go really well especially with the way they treated and respected our party goers, 90% of whom had a learning disability.
Thank you

Brilliant fish and chips!

Great communication from the start. Georgina and Justin are a really friendly pair and they did a great job at my mum's 60th birthday party. The vintage van looked excellent, serving was quick and the food was delicious. Everyone loved it.

Great food & good communication!

Georgina & her husband did a fantastic job serving fish & chips to over 100 people on our construction job in what could have been quite challenging logistically. Arrived on time and everyone was very well fed! - would highly recommend.

Highly Recommend!

The Hungry Plaice catered for 50 guests at my Mum's 70th on Saturday, and I can't say enough good things about them! The fish and chips were so fresh, and served piping hot. Everyone said how much they enjoyed them, and the service was super quick, considering how many people were queued up! Thank you.

Excellent service and 100% recommend... yum yum!

We booked The Food Van to cater a surprise 60th birthday party at a school and are so glad we did! Communication throughout was excellent and the fish and chips were totally delicious. All dietary requirements catered to and food served in well-presented, tasteful biodegradable containers. Service was efficient and we had lots of compliments from guests. Loved the retro food van too! We've never used this website before and after rifling through different companies, would 100% recommend The Food Van to all! THANK YOU!

They offer a great product

From the moment I booked The Food Van I had great communication right up to the day of the party when I got a text to say they had left and were on their way, so reassuring. I felt that I could trust them to deliver what they said they would do and on the day they were extremely easy to work with & very accommodating.
The food was delicious and the portion size I thought was just right.
You could see that food hygiene was important to them and I was impressed as it is not something I thought off when booking them.
All in all I have no reason not to fully recommend them for any occasion.
Georgina was lovely to deal with too.

The overall service was great with tasty food

We were very pleased with ‘The Food Van’ - they provided good tasting food which was enjoyed by guests.
The only down side was that the menu choices on offer were changed within a month of the wedding - after we had sent out orders with the invitations - this meant that some of our guests did not get their preferred food choice on the day.
