'So many thanks to you and Jo for making our little party so successful. You have had so many compliments about all your lovely food and wonderful service. Lots of very happy people!
We know you 'do it all the time’ but you made us feel important and special and your help and guidance of what to do has been invaluable. Not sure we can face doing a 50th! but if ever we have another event you will be our first choice.'- D.W

'Jess and her team are just wow! When things with our original caterer started to go wrong a few months before our wedding, panic kicked in until Okens Kitchen were recommended and all was well again. From my first conversation with Jess I felt reassured we were in good hands. She listened to what we wanted, asked lots of questions, made lots of suggestions, she responded to emails quickly and was reassuringly in control. Her quote came back quickly, it was excellent value too!

We had a tasting at okens tea room and were delighted and amazed with the quantity and options we were given, 4 of us struggled to do it justice. After much deliberation we finalised our menu of canapés to start served with the welcome drinks, then for each table a chicken, ham and leek pie, a big bowl of mash, seasonal veg, a big jug of extra sauce, a big spoon and apron for the guest nominated as the pie server. We finished the meal off with the lightest lemon tart I’ve ever had. The food was amazing, piping hot, lots of it and delicious. She has an a amazing team helping her, they were so helpful and attentive, they brought the food out quickly and looked after everyone really well. It was absolutely wonderful to look around the room and see everyone enjoying themselves and the food, it really helped to make the day relaxed and fun, we couldn’t have wished for more.

I can’t recommend them highly enough, we will definitely be using them again. 
Thanks Jess, you’re a super star! xx'  - B.H

 

'Appoint Us had our company Christmas party here on Saturday (- late I know. ) What a memorable night though. All the staff absolutely loved it. Welcomed by Jess and Jo (and girls cannot thank you enough for it) We did a Ready Steady Cook night where we were split in to teams - one for canapés one for starters one main course and one desserts. We were then left with ingredients and a recipe. Lots of prosecco lots of team work and lots of fun two hours later we all sat down together to eat the most beautiful meal we had collectively produced. I cannot speak highly enough if this place or the fantastic time we all had. Loads of photos on our website and Facebook pages. Big thank you Jess and Jo. definitely be back!' - J.E

Chloe really enjoyed herself and will have such treasured memories of her birthday there. We will definitely be back! Thank you also for catering for Amy's lactofree needs! Nothing was too much trouble for either of you.' - B.C

 

 

'I just wanted to say a really big THANK YOU for all of your hard work in the run up to and on the day of our wedding, you were so calm and organised it was so reassuring for us it was you in charge of feeding our guests.  And what wonderful food it was, everything was delicious, piping hot and lots of it!  Your team were fantastic, everything came out quick and they were so polite and happy.  Everyone complimented the food and I think it really helped to make the day that bit more special.' - B.L

 

'I would like to thank you for organising our 40th anniversary party. Jess, Jo and all the team worked very hard and were so friendly and efficient. Everything went brilliantly and far surpassed our expectations (which were high!). Bob and I thoroughly enjoyed the party, being able to relax with our family and friends, knowing that everything was being sorted out. We had so many lovely comments about you, your staff, and the food.' - J.T

 

'I'd like to thank you for helping make last Saturday such a special day. Jess, Jo and Phoebe, you did such a brilliant job and the food was superb. I have to say, your sausage rolls were the best sausage rolls I've ever had! If I have need for event catering in the future, I will most definitely be getting in touch!' - D.P

 

'Enjoyed a fabulous evening for my friend’s 50th birthday celebration.  Jessica and Jo were very welcoming despite us being a little late in arriving, in fact they did some food prep while waiting so that we were able to start cooking straight after introductions were made.  The recipes were clear and concise and the workstations well equipped with all the correct utensils laid out.  After 30 minutes or so of cooking we were seated and our culinary delights served up amongst much oohing and ahhing!  A novel concept which made for a fun and glamorous way to celebrate in style.'
