  • Reviews of Food and Catering at Pennard House

    I can’t believe it was over a week ago now!

    Just wanted to say the biggest possible thank you to you and everyone at Pennard who helped to make our day so incredible. You, Harry, La, Ellie, and everyone else we dealt with were so incredibly helpful and made it a day we will remember forever despite the few hiccups along the way, you kept us so well informed with any changes that needed to be made and made a last minute change of caterers really simple to navigate. I’ve had friends who found getting married such a stressful process but the whole team at Pennard and your relaxed vibe made sure that nothing was too stressful and I think that really helped us to have just the most fun and relaxed day we could have possibly wanted.

    Both our families and all of the guests commented on how amazing everyone at Pennard was, as well as how beautiful it is. The food in general was absolutely flipping delicious – I wish we could have that all the time – I need to track down the sausage canapes we had because everyone I spoke to in the days after the wedding said how good they were! A great decision to take the catering in house I think!

    Just need some more friends to get married now so I can persuade them to use Pennard and we have an excuse to come back.

    Thank you again, we really did have the happiest day of our lives

    As I tried explaining in the kitchen I wasn't sure what my expectations were but above and beyond doesn't come close. From start to finish you made the whole process so easy and on the day nothing seemed too much trouble. The canopies went down a storm and the service was excellent. The main was amazing and you were right, Laura did decide on the orange creme brulee for desert.
    We've had so many people mention the bacon sandwiches and ploughman's and you even got compliments from the Greek side of the family for the meatballs and the lamb, we all know how good that was.
    Thanks again for everything and the team you had on the day was outstanding.

    Hello I just want to give you some feedback on your contributions to the wedding of my daughter Polly at the weekend. You were AMAZING!
    From the moment we arrived on Friday to the moment we left on Sunday we were looked after to the highest standard and with nothing but smiles and can do attitude. Lucy and Ellie were totally in control at all times and on hand to soothe any anxieties I felt, usually by telling me what they were already doing to manage the situation and seeing if there was anything else I would like done. There never was!
    Jo who served dinner for us on Friday evening was also a delight - so much so that Polly and I invited her to come along the next evening - which I'm delighted that she did.
    All the house guests remarked to us on the quality of their accommodation and the joy of being able to use the beautiful reception rooms.
    My granddaughter Ellen was also spellbound by invading the kitchen and meeting Amber the dog, probably the time she enjoyed most in the whole weekend.
    So enormous thanks to the team and great admiration for their professionalism and stamina.

    "Where to begin?! Thank you so much for making our wedding so wonderful. Just some of the comments we overheard/received!:
    ‘The best food I've ever eaten at a wedding’
    ‘The nicest catering people’\r\n‘Such attentive waiting staff’
    ‘We’re not sure what it is, but we love the wobbly bit on the sharing platter!’
    ‘The nicest starter and the best pie ever’
    Etc, etc, I think the picture is clear!"

    "We received so many compliments on the food! The guests thought it was all amazing, particular favourites were the Mozzarella Risotto balls and mini sausages! One guest even said the wedding breakfast was her all time favourite meal, ever! Christian had the chicken and I had the vegetarian and both were superb! So thank you and your team for all the hard work that went in to it!"

    "We wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the rest of your team for providing such an excellent meal at our wedding. The food was absolutely lovely and we received nothing but compliments from our guests regarding the food. Not only was the food the delicious but the presentation was also beautiful. If you ever need a personal recommendation from us regarding the vegetarian and vegan food you provide then please do let us know. Thanks again, we had such a lovely day and I still can’t smiling when I think about the day"
