Seb and I would like to say a HUGE thank you for all of your amazing work on our wedding day. Everyone who attended the wedding commented on how delicious the food was (they are seriously still commenting on it!!). The staff were super friendly and we were so thankful they embraced the wild weather too!

We also really appreciated everything you did in planning and creating the menu for us to make our day special.

Thank you so much!

On behalf of our entire school community, I would like to send you and your incredibly professional team at Freshwater Catering our sincere thanks.

Penbank School’s 40th Year Anniversary Red Ball could not have been the highly successful event that it was without your specialist expertise and guidance in events and catering. Working with your dynamic team in planning our Red Ball was a stress free and great experience.

From the moment our guests arrived they were presented with unbelievably delicious food in abundance.  The wines you suggested for our function were also a hit. Your friendly and engaging staff were a pleasure to deal with. There was no job too hard for them.

I can think of no better catering and events team to work with for any of our up-coming events. I look forward to our next great adventure!

Please pass on my sincere thanks to all involved at Freshwater Catering.

We just had Freshwater cater our Engagement Party last night!!

We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
From our first phone chat, through to planning the menu, to arriving prepared on the night was handled seamlessly.

It was simply a spectacular display of beautiful food, incredible service and that genuine desire to make our night amazing. Our guests loved you, we loved you too! Thanks to the team at Freshwater for making our night so special!

Robert and I would like to thankyou for everything.

The includes: the military style organisation; food preparation; bar setup; waitering staff (which we would like to say were exemplary throughout the whole time); the BBQ setup+food quality – you have taken this to new heights; canapes were all glorious. I managed to fit in two servings of the main course – yum, yum is all I can say.
Freshwater provided us with the very best of what the peninsula can offer and we can only hope in future times, there is a 7 star award for gourmet BBQ.
Naturally the company will not be forgotten for future parties we will be holding in the garden. We will  build upon the outdoor area and Freshwater showed us how this can be transformed to something that is of the highest order.
All of these things culminated in a magical day which was impossible to have occurred without you and the team. You are an excellent communicator, something which is crucial to the wedding couple who are on their toes throughout the day.
We are thrilled that you were a part of our special day.
Our very best regards.

Hi Jacqui,
I have been very remiss in telling you how fantastic the food was for our party, so many great comments they loved it all! The staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, when they left you didn’t even know they had been, let alone having fed 40 people!! They were fabulous (I cannot remember her name that is due to  my being old) she was outstanding!! So thank you so very much for making the day such a success.
Kind regards
Prue Matthews
