'I wanted to say a massive 'Thank you!' for the lunches you've provided me at my place of work for the past 10 years. I've really enjoyed the variety of lunches you've provided, my favourites are probably the Cous Cous with Sundried Tomatoes and Mozzarella closely followed by the wild rice with chargrilled veggies and pine nuts. The bit that I've enjoyed the most about the service you've provided is not having to ask myself the daily question 'What am I going to have for lunch today?' and knowing that whatever I've ordered will be enjoyable, tasty and high quality food. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that my colleagues and I will certainly miss the wonderful cakes you have baked for us. Lunch will never be the same again! Massive Thanks'

The food has been excellent and the portions big enough to satisfy even the largest appetite!. We have always had to have a veggie option and a meat choice, and we also have one person who is lactose intolerant. All this has been catered for with absolutely no fuss...and the best thing is they leave everything neat and tidy'
