Here’s what our customers had to say…


I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for the catering last Saturday at Holmegate House.

The food and the service was amazing and it totally made the weekend.

I really should have thanked you more at the time but we were a little carried away with the fun of the evening!

Thanks again



I am sorry that I havent been in touch properly sooner. We wanted to say just how thankful we are. The food was outstanding. We have had almost every person at the wedding comment on it – and both of us in particular absolutely loved it. Particularly the starters! We are so glad that we had you and your team as part of our wedding day.

Thanks again,

Tom & Teri


We just wanted to say thank you and your team for this weekend. The food was absolutely amazing- we had so many comments about delicious it all was… particularly the lamb!

Thank you making the whole day and process so easy. It was amazing feeling in such safe hands, so thank you!

Fred and Fi


I must apologise for not getting in touch sooner. We would like to thank you and your team for the fantastic catering and service you gave us at Annabel and Phil’s wedding on August 12th 2017.

We have had nothing but compliments about the food from every guest in addition to compliments on the staff.    We are only sorry we do not run weddings as a business as we would recommend you every time!

You were very efficient and helpful from the start and made some excellent suggestions tailored to our event. The food was superb and nothing was too much trouble for your staff. The guests who had food allergies or specific requirements were

very happy also.

The wedding went off extremely well – even the weather was kind to us.

So a heartfelt thanks from us all, including the bride and groom

Best wishes

Tony and Alana Sayers

Philip and Annabel Spencer


Just wanted to say many thanks to you and your staff for doing such a great job on Saturday. The food was fantastic and throughly enjoyed by everyone.

Kind Regards

Donna & Barney


Hope you are well, I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how happy we were with the service you provided for our wedding both in the run up and on the day.

We loved the menu and the presentation of the food was perfect for our wedding style,  all our guests commented on how lovely the meal was.  If there is anywhere you would like us to review/recommend you we would be more than happy.

Thank you again for helping make our day extra special.

Zoe and Tom Green


I left a review on google for you. I hope you like it. Sara is keen to write one for you too.

Just to say thanks again for everything at the wedding.

The food was outstanding – everyone loved it. Obviously i’m probably a bit biased but was definitely one of the best wedding meals I’ve ever had.

The staff were fantastic – was great to have them serving drinks prior to the meal and doing the clearing up.

It was great value for money! 

Let me know if can leave a review anywhere else.

Cheers again.



Just wanted to write and thank you so much for the outstanding supper you cooked for us on my birthday. The service you provided made the whole process so easy, the quality of all the produce you served was of very high quality and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending you.  In conversation with the ownner of Studland Bay House I said how very good you had been and he asked me to send him your details and menus. I hope you don’t mind but I have done this as I know he is interested in doing some weddings at the house and I knew you do weddings as well.  Hope this may benefit you.




Jamie and I have just got back from our honeymoon so catching up now.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for fabulous food and service on the day.

Your team were truly lovely and the food was just perfect.

You are top of our recommendations list for friends in the future.

With warmest regards and best wishes,

Becca and Jamie

Just a note to say thank you so much for providing fabulous food and staff on Saturday evening. Everyone was full of compliments for the delicious canapes and Ian, Jess and Helen did a brilliant job – the girls expertly avoiding the dog hazards as they worked their way around my guests. It was thoughtful of them, too, to park across the road to leave parking spaces for others.

All in all, I was thrilled with Lyme Bay Field Kitchen – you made it all very easy for us.

Thank you,



Sorry it’s taken a few weeks to pen this email!

Just wanted to thank you and your team for helping us to have a wonderful wedding on the 22nd October. The food was superb and the waiting staff were all wonderful.

Please do pass on our thanks to them and we have recommended you to everyone we speak to about catering!

Many thanks



You kindly catered for my daughter and her new husband’s wedding celebration on Saturday the 10 September 2016 at Wedmore Village Hall.

We felt we had to write to send our heartfelt thanks for the amazing food and service that you provided on their special day.  We received very many wonderful comments about your food on the day from many of the guests and your attention to everyone on the day was wonderful.

From the serving of the canapes immediately after the wedding, the wedding breakfast and the staff in the evening was faultless.  It is something that I know Charli and Bill were extremely pleased with as they wanted their wedding to be to their choosing and you did everything within your power to make sure that this was achieved!

Many many thanks to you all.

With kind regards

Mike and Kim Keeler (Charli’s mum and dad)


Hi James,

I can’t remember if I managed to get round and speak to you before you left but lots of thanks to you and the team for your efforts on the day, the food was really good and highly praised by everyone there.




I just wanted to say an enormous thank you. The food, staff, help with preparation and advice you gave us were all truly what made a special day spectacular.

Have a great summer

Rich and Em


Thank you very much to you and all your staff for providing such an excellent service on our wedding day. The food was fantastic and have only had rave reviews!

Best of luck to all of the Lyme Bay team!

Kind regards,



Sorry we didn’t get a chance to thank you on Tuesday for the spectacular food you produced for our son’s wedding reception. It certainly ranks as one of the best if not the best meal we have had at a wedding reception. Please thank your staff also for their courteous service.

Kind regards
Rosie and John Colwell


Amazing food and amazing service! We were so pleased with the quality of the food and the service was exceptional. Thank you so much for catering for us. There were a lot of happy guests and lots of positive comments about the food. The food was as good as the tasting and we thoroughly enjoyed it all. Thank you for all the little extras you did like the cake and cheese. It was a brilliant day all round. 

Thanks Emily and Tim


I hope you’re having a good new year so far, apologies for taking so long to get in touch. I’ve been meaning to since August to say a huge thank you to you and your team for our wonderful wedding food. It was fantastic and many of our guests have said so too!

Wishing you all the best for the future,

Lizzie and Ricky x


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all you did on our wedding day! Everyone commented on just how wonderful the food was and how generous the portions were! You provided us with exactly what we wanted and helped the whole day run smoothly, stress free and personal! The fudge cake was a particular hit with one of my bridesmaids who actually ended up eating 4 pieces!! And in the evening one guest also managed to make room for three bacon rolls!!

Thank you so much James! We hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Christmas!

Dawn, Martin and Jake



We just wanted to thank you again for catering our wedding in Exmouth at the end of August. You and your amazing team really did make our day that extra bit special and peoples feedback was simply amazing. You did everything and more than we could ever of asked.
As promised I am recommending you left right and centre and again told the venue how amazing we were.
Anyway thanks again and next time we are having a party you will be the first person we call.

Kind regards
James and Lizzie


Very professional team headed by James, arrived promptly down in Cornwall on the day, was very relaxed (when I wasn’t!). Staff were very attentive and welcoming.
The food was of brilliant quality, especially the beef! And was all nicely presented.

With thanks Abi & Gary’


Hope you’re well and having a great (I’m sure very busy) summer. Sorry that’s it’s taken so long to get in touch, but just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and your team for the exceptional work you did for our wedding. The food was amazing, we’ve had so many great comments, people saying the food is the best they’ve had at a wedding- everything was really delicious- and the service and logistics were all brilliant. So thank you so so much again!

Many thanks again and best wishes,

Amy & Si


Sorry in the delayed contact, after our honeymoon time has just flown by.
We just wanted to thank you for the great food at our wedding on July 18th. It was scummy and we could have eaten the beef all week (think we made the right choice with the sauce – it looked and tasted great). We were so pleased with the attention to detail and all the little bits were remembered. The staff were all lovely and coped valiantly with the random barn buildings/cattle sheds and array of fridges.
Thanks again and hope you are enjoying the rest of the Summer and the weddings soon calm down.
Best wishes
Kate and John

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the wonderful wedding breakfast you provided for our daughter on Saturday.
Many of our guests commented on the quality of the meal and the splendid way that your staff served us throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were still smiling and attentive at the end.
We are sorry that we didn’t see you to thank you personally – however you were praised during the lengthy speeches!! We do hope that the longevity of them didn’t hold up your staff too much.
Barry and I were particularly impressed by the way your team worked with the Corn Barn staff to cater for such a large number of people in such a limited space.
Your Beef dish was highly commended in particular. We do hope that the day was successful for you and we will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.
Barry and Sarah Wilson.

The food was perfect thank you to your team.
Scarlet & Lucy


We would like to say a massive thank you, everyone said how amazing the food was! They all said they couldn’t believe they were given a menu choice as most wedding they’d been to just had the one choice with a vegetarian option.
Huge thank you again and hopefully see you soon.

Best wishes
Lyndsay and Shane


I hope you are well. I wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful food and service you and the team provided for us on our wedding day. So many of our guests have asked us to pass on their compliments to you as they loved the food.

It’s been a real pleasure working with you in the build up to our wedding and on the day it was great to be able to relax knowing you had everything under control, and you left the kitchen spotless as well.

Thanks again and hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Matt & Alice


Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work Saturday. We had great feedback on the food and your staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful.

Best wishes

I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to thank you personally on Sunday. Everyone was blown away by the food…especially the pizzas. I was so impressed by everything and it really did make the day even better!

Many thanks again,


We all wanted to thank you both for a really delicious meal – everyone loved it – thank you!

Best Wishes



Very many thanks for providing such delicious food and for all your help with the planning beforehand. It all worked wonderfully and we had a memorable and special weekend.
With best wishes.

Sorry for this belated thank you, but I just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed your delicious food last Saturday evening – it was the perfect way for us all to relax and enjoy Mum’s early birthday celebration without having to think about the meal on the night.Also thank you for being so flexible on the various menu choices – it did mean that everyone enjoyed their evening!
Thanks and Happy Easter.
Best wishes,
Sue (& all the family)

Thank you so much for such fabulous food on Wednesday! I’m sorry we didn’t get to see more of you all.
Everyone is still talking about the food, in particular the pizzas! They were delicious. Everything was fantastic, thank you so much for contributing in making our day just as perfect and laid back as we’d planned.

Thanks again,


I wanted to e mail to say once again thank you for amazing food last week. All my guests loved the food and the service you gave us was fantastic.
The whole weekend for me was very special I loved Lindens and Lulworth Cove the location was perfect.
Simon and I were so impressed wish you could come to Brighton.
I hope to take Lindens again …maybe next year.

Thank you



Just a quick note to thank you for Saturday. We were so impressed with the team and the food. They were extremely professional and the food was excellent. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it! Please pass on our thanks to everyone.



I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the superb dinner party at the Old Rectory on Saturday 22nd March. You provided a beautifully cooked and presented meal in the most unobtrusive and professional manner, it was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday and we were all truly impressed. The attention to detail, the flavour of the food and your relaxed and easy manner made it a very memorable meal and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending your services.

With kind regards


A huge ‘thank you’ for the amazing food and wonderful service that Lyme Bay Field Kitchen gave us at our wedding! Everyone said how delicious the food was and we absolutely loved it

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the food at our wedding. We have had so many people remark how wonderful it was- the best wedding food they’d ever had!
We will definitely recommend you to anyone we can, and if we ever need a caterer in the future, we’ll be in contact!

Thank you again,
Sarah and Paul Bryant


We have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a note to THANK YOU for all your help and amazing food at our wedding. You and your staff were fantastic and we’ve had some lovely comments from our friends and family. The day was perfect and in a large part that is thanks to you and your team.

Thanks again

Thank you so much for last night. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, polite and helpful – you really contributed to making a wonderful evening!

Many thanks


Many thanks for a great paella on Saturday night. The meat and vegetarian options were much enjoyed and appreciated. Please pass on our thanks to Rob and Samantha for doing a wonderful job and for being so helpful.

Thank you also for being so flexible and accommodating and enabling us to do some things ourselves. We would certainly recommend you to anyone.

Best wishes
Hilary and Michael Winter


I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye to you on Saturday and say thank you for such wonderful food and service. Your team are absolutely fantastic and made everything appear seamlessly effortless, which always requires a huge amount of planning and organisation, I know! You were always so helpful during the planning process too which made everything both fun and stress free.
Everyone has been raving about the food, and as there didn’t seem to be much left, is testament to this.
You did such a great job clearing up too, there was very little to be done on Sunday.
Please pass on our huge thanks to your team and especially to you – it was really wonderful!

Best wishes
Anna x


I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for all the wonderful food you and your team provided for us over the weekend before last.
The team on site were great and worked really hard to deliver things just as we wanted.
Thanks so much for your help beforehand and also the quality of the food on the two nights.

Kind regards
Ros Windsor


Just wanted to drop a quick email to say thank you for all the food you provided for our wedding. It was incredibly hot so conditions were probably quite intense! I know the sun goes down into the catering marquee so it must have been hot. I wished I could change into shorts – wedding dresses are not made for that weather!

The front of house chap was lovely and dealt well with everyone deciding they needed a break between the main and the pudding really well. Also it seemed that a few guests suddenly decided to become vegetarian so sorry about that! I think the heat was to blame!

We had lots of compliments about the food – the mini burgers, pizzas and the brownies in particular!

Many Thanks
Cat and Steve


Thank you for your great food and service. The centenary celebration went really well and everyone loved the food. Thank you and your staff for the smooth running of the night. We all enjoyed it so much there is a rumour that we will be doing the same again next year! Thanks again to you and your staff.
best wishes

Anna Patmore


Thank you so much for doing a wonderful job on Saturday. So many friends have said how delicious it was and they are right. Also I especially want to thank you and all the team for being so wonderfully calm and reassuring and just quietly getting on with it so that Jonathan and I had a lovely time. And heartfelt special thanks for making our pudding presentable!

Very best wishes,


Thank you so much for the catering on our wedding day. It was absolutely fantastic from the canapés to the mains, to the pulled pork.

Chris and Charlotte Rodd,


I wanted to pass on a huge vote of thanks from all 15 of us who stayed at the Lindens last weekend. The two of you seemed to effortlessly produce amazing and delicious food, one course after the other, and leaving the kitchen tidy with everything washed up was brilliant.
We all had a really good evening, with the dinner being the highlight – and thanks to all that dancing later on, perhaps we weren’t quite as full as we might have been by the time we finally made it to bed!

Many thanks


I just wanted to thank you for the meal you cooked for us last Saturday at the lovely Old Rectory. We all enjoyed it very much. Hope we weren’t too noisy with the false teeth and tongue twisters!!
Thanks again

Kind regards


I am writing with thanks on behalf of Anna Lane and her family.  They enjoyed a wonderful dinner provided by your company during their stay at the Lindens.

Thank you too on a personal note as you made it very easy for me to make the necessary arrangements.

With kindest regards.



I just wanted to reiterate our thanks for all you did on Saturday night.
Everyone commented on how good the food and service was.  You really helped make the evening very special!
Kind regards


Just a quick line to thank you and your girls for making our evening on Saturday so special.  Everything was perfect.

Many thanks

Maggie and Co


I’ve been meaning to email you since Lizzie’s hen weekend.

I just wanted to thank you for the lovely meal you cooked us all, I thought it was delicious and the other girls made similar comments! The whole evening ran very smoothly, please pass on our thanks to the waitress too.

Hope to use your services again in the future.

Thanks again!

Kind regards,


Thank you so much for the fantastic food and service on Easter Sunday.  It made my birthday celebration perfect.  Everyone was so impressed by the selection of food and the calm and professional way you worked to serve us a fantastic meal.

Kind regards,

Sue Bonnell


Well what can I say? What a truly spectacular weekend of culinary delights you have treated us to. The service and food you gave us was just kept on growing and getter better and better.

The Barbecue on Friday was simply brilliant, the celebration meal was, quite frankly better than excellent and to conclude on a picnic beyond all picnics was beyond belief.

Thank you for supplying such lovely and diligent staff also, they were delightful.

When you set out planning a celebration like this, you have certain thoughts how its going to turn out but when it exceeds your expectation day after day it makes it just wonderful.

Thank you so much for really making Tams Celebration weekend just very special.

Well done.

With warm regards

Jerry and Tamsin Saunders.


I am now recovered enough to be able to use a computer again!!

we wanted to say how wonderful your service, food, staff and organisation was on Saturday evening. EVERYONE commented on the quality of the food, the fantastic sight of it all being put together before our very eyes, the service, and the efficiency with which the whole operation was delivered.

I know you had a bit of a challenge with the burners!! But suffice to say I didn’t actually know any of that till Sunday morning!

Jess, Sam, Rob and Louise were terrific, and please thank Jess in particular for being so focused on ensuring that Duncan and I had the star treatment..

I knew within the first minute of you all arriving that I was in safe hands, and I could go off and get ready without a second thought for the success of the catering and I was right.

My old school friend and sister in law, both coeliacs, felt very well cared for, and my girls also loved the ready access to their favourite canapé!!

Overall it was a huge success, and we are extremely grateful.

Don’t’ hesitate to use us as a reference should any future potential customer want to check you out.

Very best

Sue and Duncan


What an amazing spread you and your team put on at Colcombe Abbey for our 40th wedding anniversary recently. I cannot thank you enough for your attention to detail, professionalism, amazing choice of delicious food, we had wonderful canapés served on lovely wooded large boards. Salmon and lamb all beautifully prepared  and served.
We really appreciated your willingness to work with us and let us do our own desserts all served by your friendly efficient team of helpers.
I had no reservations about using Lyme Bay kitchens after we were able to meet you personally at the venue. You put my mind at ease and I would be happy to recommend you and your staff to anyone thinking of entertaining.
I wish you all great success in the future .thank you for making our family celebration such a  huge success.

Best wishes.

Alison Browne


To James and all the staff at Lyme Bay Field Kitchen,

Thank you for all the hard work you and your staff put in to making our big day so special.
We really could not have wished for better caterers, all of our guests commented on how excellent the food was and how polite and efficient your staff were.
It truly was the best day of our lives and it would not have been the same without all of your hard work”.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing such fantastic food and great service for us yesterday. Rob and the team were fabulous and everyone commented on how amazing the food was, thank you so much, it was a great day.

Thank you once again.

We wanted to write and say a huge thank you for the wonderful food that you created for our wedding celebrations.

From the moment we walked down the stairs at the house after our ceremony to the end of the evening, everything was expertly organised. Every detail we had asked you to perform was executed perfectly. Rob and his team were incredibly attentive. Every guest commented on how amazing they were. It really made a massive difference to us and our guests to have such lovely conscientious group of people serving us.

As you can see from the picture below, you laid the table beautifully. every aspects looked absolutely stunning.

Now on to the food. We don’t know how you managed to create such superb food in that small kitchen! The barbecue at lunch was just perfect, all the meats and accompanying salads etc were delicious, everyone commented on how much they loved the food. The evening meal was also wonderful. It really couldn’t have been better. Everyone had such a wonderful time. It is clear that you put your heart into your work and that shows.

We would recommend you to everyone who is looking for a company to produce not only wonderful food but also a fabulous day and that you can trust to deliver on every aspect as planned.

So thank you for everything, it made our day perfect.

Warmest regards
