The Tin Canteen was an absolute super hit!

Karyn was the sweetest lady ever. Everyone enjoyed the crepes. The service was outstanding.
I would highly recommend the tin Canteen for any event. It made my daughter’s 18th birthday super special.
It fit neatly in our drive way

Amazing waffles and crepes! Out of this world!

Can’t thank Tin Canteen enough for supplying waffles and crepes for our school Leavers Party. A massive hit with everyone. Would definitely use them again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Many thanks

Amazing, perfect for our evening wedding food!

Communication was great, the team worked well together on the day. They were all incredibly polite and gave great service. The food was just as we wanted with many options for our guests. Served quickly and stayed throughout the evening meaning guests could go up when they fancied. Thank you so much you were perfect.

Fantastic pancakes, love the Tin Canteen!

Karyn and the Tin Canteen makes fantastic pancakes served in a really cool van. The Harvey Nichols head office staff loved them and we also raised money for Macmillan. A great day thank you so much.
Would book again for sure.

Great for all ages!

The variety of sweet food meant there was something from everyone!
We had people walking around everywhere with bubble waffles and ice cream, they went down a "treat"!
Would love to have these guys back at our future events!
