Would definitely recommend.

Everything from the communication through e-mail to communication on the night, from the ease of payment and value for money to the outstanding service and delicious food...nothing could be faulted about Thistle Catering’s service. Most guests commented specifically on how amazing the food was so it helped make the whole night special. Really impressed.

Great Service & would recommend to others.

The food was amazing and the set up they managed to create in such a small and not ideal space was more than I expected. Although the number of people who attended was a lot less than expected, it was still a great evening. Everyone loved the food and I was happy I could provide the participants with something different to a few sausage rolls. I think everyone enjoyed the fact that not as many people turned up than was expected as this allowed more food for seconds and for some, a third helping! It was a pleasant feeling to walk back into the room once catering had gone and find the room exactly how it was when we entered! So thank you for that. I would definitely like to use Thistle Catering again in the future.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed our food and service. It was unfortunate that not all your guests attended, and as you highlight, value for money not as positive as it could have been had all your guests attended. Very pleased however that you all enjoyed your food and service. Kindest regards, Thistle Catering Team
