Truly Scrumptious !

Arnold made the whole experience of finding, tasting, booking so personal and easy and then delivered the most amazing food on the day exactly as promised. We were so happy and our guests were delighted with the quality of the food along with the quirky vintage french van that set a great atmosphere. Thank you so much Arnold good luck with the rest of the summer I will not hesitate to recommend the french revolution to anyone looking to hire caterers for their event.

Great company! Delicious food!

I booked Arnold and The French Revolution over a year before our event (wedding party). Since booking I have been looking forward to eating the galettes and crepes. I can wholeheartedly say, it was definitely worth the wait! I'm so glad we made this choice! So many of our guests have complimented us (I'm pretty sure all credit goes to The French Revolution!). A guest was annoyed that we had chosen pancakes for the event... he tried one and loved it! I don't think I can give a higher compliment than that!

The whole service was impeccable & stress free from the first email till they drove off at the end. Reasonably priced for high quality, freshly cooked food, also catered to food intolerance's. The van looks awesome.

Book them!

Excellent food under atrocious conditions

Arnold turned up at our Seaford Striders Mince Pie 10 mile race to provide his excellent gallettes and crepes under the most awful weather conditions we had experienced. Gales and horizontal sleet and rain. His delicious hot food was most welcome and provided that much needed boost to both runners and helpers alike !

Absolutely brilliant!

Arnold was so easy to work with from the communication beforehand to the delivery of crepes on the day. They were absolutely delicious and all the wedding guests loved the food and the beautiful van as well. Thank you so much and I would recommend this to anyone.

Wonderful Crepe Van

We loved this little van making Galettes and Crepes. Our guests were all very impressed with the quality of the food, but also thought the idea was great fun. I'd warmly recommend the French Revolution to anyone.

Went above and beyond what we could have hoped for

French Revolution catered the evening of our wedding. Arranging everything beforehand was extremely straight-forward. On the day, they arrived in plenty of time to get set up. The food was a massive success with everyone saying how amazing the pancakes/galettes were. The one issue was they ended up developing quite a queue but people didn't mind waiting and they even stayed later than they were meant to in order to make sure everyone was served. We couldn't have asked for a better supplier for our special day!

Lovely food & charming service; highly recommended

Arnold and his wonderful Creperie Lui van came along to our 40th birthday party on 20th May 2017, and delighted our 120+ guests with a fantastic range of savoury galettes and sweet crepes that were very well received by our hungry partygoers. Very professional from start to finish, it was a pleasure doing business with you, Arnold! Highly recommended to anyone looking for fantastic food with artisanal flair! John & Louise Hartley, Tilford, Surrey.

Unique, delicious & mess-free

From the moment I posted the event, Arnold's communication has been second to none. I felt relaxed knowing he'd respond to questions on the same day, usually instantaneously. He arrived on time and set up with minimal fuss. The savoury crepes were absolutely delicious. I didn't try the sweet but had fantastic feedback from loads of the 18 year old guests. The galettes are served in cardboard holders with napkins so no need for plates and cutlery. The event was a huge success and Arnold and his team undoubtedly contributed to this. Thank You.
