Thank you very much indeed for giving my father the perfect birthday lunch party. You really pulled out all the stops for him
David and Pippa

From our first meeting to the actual event a year later we found it a pleasure to talk through our plans and ideas. You were so willing to deliver a menu of just what we wanted and provide little touches like freesias and roses. We just wish we could do this every year.
Barbara and Alan Ruby
