Thank you for making it such a stress free process.
To the next time...
Wedding in Emsworth, October 2017
Please pass on our thanks to all the team for helping to make our wedding reception so special and dealing so ably with our desert contribution to the meal. We were delighted with the service we received in the engagement, lead up and during the wedding reception.
The food was delicious and just what I had hoped for. Thank you also for dealing with the last minute guest changes. If you ever need a recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Helen & Freddie
50th Birthday Supper, October 2017
Dear Brian and team,
We would like to say a great big thank you for the truly delicious food that you provided and the feedback from our guests was that they truly enjoyed the evening. The comments were that the food was sublime, the meat was amazingly tender, the only complaint was they needed expanding waistbands!!
Many thanks once again. We will continue to recommend you.
Sarah and Dave
Lamb Roast, October 2017
Many thanks for your catering. We were very pleased with your efficient and professional service and the quality of the food. Well done, you will be recommended.

Alys and Matt
Wedding, September 2017
A big thank you to Brian and the whole team for catering at the Dawe wedding on 16/09/17. Now that we're returned from our honeymoon we thought it was about time to make you aware that the professional and rather tasty food you served us with hadn't gone un-noticed.
All our guests loved the food they ordered especially those with special requests and needs that you very kindly catered for.
Birthday Party, Emsworth, September 2017
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the food you provided for mums birthday celebration at Hollybank last Saturday. Mum had a great time and the food was delicious. Olivia, you were friendly and professional and really helped the afternoon run smoothly so a big thank you from all of us.
Babrbecue, Upper Swanmore, August 2017
...we had a great day on the 26th August, the food was superb and beautifully cooked, and the service was impeccable.
Please pass on my grateful thanks to Livvy and Harry for their hard work (and for bringing superb weather with them!).

...We were delighted with everything this year! We will also be at the Somerley Estate next year and my preference would certainly be to continue utilising Clementine Catering if we possibly can.
Thank you again for such wonderful service and food.
Wedding, August 2017
I just wanted to say again a big thank you to you and your staff for all the food, catering and service on Saturday for my wedding.
The food was delicious and we got so many great comments from all our guests.
So thank you very much, your hard work was very much appreciated.
Fiona & Sam
Wedding, August 2017
James and I just wanted to thank you and your staff wholeheartedly for the excellent way in which you catered for the wedding. The food was delicious, even though we were way behind schedule, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were cheery and unobtrusive throughout.
Weddings are quite a challenge to organise and you took control over the catering side and gave us one less thing to worry about as you were calm and confident right from the start.
James and Mandy Bulloch
Lunch Party, August 2017
We would like to thank the staff from Clementine Catering who helped make our lunch party at Holly Bank House on Saturday 12th August such a great success. The food was delicious and the staff worked really hard to ensure a wonderful lunch.
We would like to thank you for arranging it all. We have had many letters commenting on the delicious food so please pass on all our thanks to all concerned.
Diana and John Brunyate
Wedding, July 2017
Brian and team catered for our wedding on 8th July 2017. From the first conversation with Brian he seemed to understand exactly what we wanted and helped us create a bespoke menu that reflected us perfectly. Francesca answered all of our many questions before the day and let us tweak things until we were happy with it, particularly helping us to cater for our many guests with dietary requirements.
All our guests commented on how delicious the food was and we were thrilled we got to eat some of our favourite foods on our big day. As my husband works in the food service industry, and has catered for weddings many times, we were very pleased the service on the day was well organised and allowed us to enjoy the day.
Thank you for everything you did.
Wedding, July 2017
Thank you so much... Everything was perfect! Everyone said the food and service was just fabulous! Such a friendly wonderful Team.
We are still talking about it! So Thank you Thank you Thank you! We would absolutely recommend Clementine Catering to anyone asking!
Hope to use you again in the future for our summer parties.
Sue And Mike Jones
Wedding Reception, July 2017
Firstly we would like to say a big big Thank You to the team that worked at our wedding reception. They all worked really hard to make sure all our guests were well fed and watered! Not to mention chasing Claire and me around to make sure we ate something!
Many of the guests have written to us to say what a fantastic day it was, how good the food was and how nice the Clementine staff were.
Kind regards and many thanks again,
Anita and Claire
Wedding at Plaitford, June 2017
From the start to finish, Clementine were fantastic in ensuring our catering experience was exemplary! The tasting we had with Brian was helpful in choosing what we wanted for the day, and his enthusiasm for cooking good quality food was evident.
Leading up to the day, Francesca was quick to respond to any questions and flexible with our preferences. The day before and the day of the wedding, the staff coordinated steps seamlessly and supported with things we hadn't considered ourselves.
The food was delicious, with guests feeding back particularly positively about the baileys chocolate mousse! Thank you so much Clementine staff for your support the whole way through, we would recommend you highly.
Thank you for making it such a special day!
Amy and Chris
Wedding at Stokes Farm Barn, May 2017
We were very happy with the catering you provided for our celebration at Stokes Farm back in May this year. The food was amazing and we had many comments from our guests on how good it was.
The cheese cake was also fantastic and went down a treat, as did the fish and chip cones in the evening! All in all we couldn't fault anything.
Thank you very much to you and the team for all that you did.
Andrew & Kate
Art Exhibition, May 2017
Many thanks to Brian and Clementine Catering once again for providing a superb selection of delicious canapés, which made for the perfect accompaniment to the exhibition preview evening.
The presentation was excellent and with food of such exceptional quality, I would not hesitate to use Clementine Catering again for future events. Highly recommended!
Jerry Smith Paintings
Birthday Party, May 2017
Thank you to all the Clementine Catering team who have worked so hard on my 40th birthday BBQ food.
We had many comments on the delicious food and friends who took cards so we hope there will be some future business for you. We would not hesitate to recommend your friendly, professional business. I felt completely relaxed, knowing that everything was competently being taken care of.
We hope to be able to use your services again soon.
Corporate Event, May 2017
Brian and his team did a superb job from start to finish. Francesca was attentive from the get-go and made sure that our requests were accommodated while the set-up on the day was hassle-free and professional. The service team were proactive and polite. And the food was delicious, varied and excellent value for money.
We would undoubtedly use Clementine Catering again in the future and would recommend their services to anyone looking for high-quality catering.
Wedding, April 2017
Thank you so much for your excellent service at our wedding. All of your staff were brilliant - warm and friendly. So many people commented on the delicious food - right up our street - we couldn't have asked for more. Honestly, who needs a formal wedding breakfast when you can have an incredible hog roast with stuffing!?
A huge thank you to Francesca for emailing back and forth a thousand times over the past however many months.
It was truly the best day of my life - thanks for your help in making it so great!!!
Barn Dance, April 2017
Thank you so much for the wonderful food and service you gave at my party. It all exceeded my expectations and was a tip-top standard.
Many have commneted on the beautiful Hog Roast and I have passed on your details.
Thank you again!
Hog Roast, March 2017
Brian and his team went above and beyond to help us create a party exactly as we wished for our guests. From listening to our requirements and suggesting suitable ideas, to ensuring on the night everything ran smoothly.
The site was a little tricky for setting up the hog roast but Brian and his team were professional and calm and we had fantastic feedback on how delicious the food was, there was also plenty for all of our 100 guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clementine catering and also would most certainly be contacting them in the future. Fantastic job, thank you Brian!
Warmest regards and many thanks,
Dinner Party, February 2017
We had an absolutely fantastic evening, thank you. From planning the menu and being so flexible to ensure that we got the perfect menu to the food and service on the evening - we had an absolutely fantastic dinner.
Brian and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was perfect and very filling! Everyone talked about the food for the rest of the weekend. I would definitely recommend Clementine Catering for anyone looking for caterers in the area.
Thank you for making our evening so perfect!
Birthday Party, January 2017
I am writing to say a massive thank you for the fantastic food you supplied at my 60th Birthday Party. There was plenty of it and it tasted absolutely fantastic especially the Beef and the Salmon. So many of our guests asked who had done the food as they were so impressed so I'm hoping this will lead to some more business for you.
We will definitely be using you again as we are looking to do a small dinner party for 10 and really fancy the idea of you just turning up with the food instead of us spending the day in the kitchen preparing it!
Christmas Party, December 2016
Brian and his team at Clementine Catering provided us a pre-Christmas buffet, it was perfection personified, from the very start we received a flexible and professional service with nothing being too much trouble, the food was sumptuous and beautifully presented and received compliments from all those attending our event.
Tavcom, Bishop's Waltham
Party, November 2016
I just wanted to say again how truly grateful I am for everything you did on Saturday. You went above and beyond and made Simon's party a huge success.
The food was delicious and everyone was raving about it and your service.
Thank you so so much you were wonderful, I will be recommending you to everyone and I hope we can work together in the future again.
Have a great week and thank you again so much.
Wedding, October 2016
A big thank you to you and your team for the fabulous meal and attentive staff at Lottie and Dan’s wedding. So many guests commented on the delicious food.
We will certainly be recommending you and hope to see you again in the future.
Chris & Robert
Wedding, September 2016
The wedding went amazingly well, despite the weather's best attempts to ruin it! The food was excellent, as expected, with many great comments from guests and plenty of food for second helpings.
Your staff were also friendly and efficient, please thank them for us. The Thai Red curry certainly seemed to benefit from the switch to coconut milk, a little less creamy and more traditional.
Thank you for your help in making our wedding such a success!
Rich & Josie
Wedding Party, August 2016
I just wanted to write and thank you for your catering at my daughter's wedding party at the farm last week. You were all so efficient and friendly. The bar staff could not have been more helpful. Many of the guests commented on the delicious food.
Thank you for your contribution to making Alice's party a success! We shall certainly recommend you to our friends.
Product Launch Event for Dassi Bikes, July 2016
We had these guys do the catering for our bike launch and they provided an excellent service with incredible food and champagne.
I would highly recommend them and will happily be using them for any further events.
Thanks again guys.
Wedding, July 2016
Sorry for the delay in contacting you since our wedding, but we wanted to express our thanks for helping make our special day run so smoothly.
You and your team worked so hard on the day and the food was delicious, so many of our guests commented on this. We are very pleased that we chose you as our caterers for our wedding and would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone else.
Amanda and Simon Ghafur
Party, July 2016
We would both like to thank you for your amazing service on Saturday. The food was lovely and everyone was so friendly and helpful. The little things that we didn't expect like bringing the canapes upstairs for us whilst we were doing archery and laying out the cupcakes for us were really appreciated.
Thank you again - you helped to make our day perfect!
Tom and Liz Short
Christening, July 2016
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the catering today. Everyone was thrilled with how amazing the hog roast was. It was the best one I have had by far!!! Your team were friendly and professional all afternoon and I would highly recommend your services.
So thank you very much!!! Hope they enjoyed their cake :)
Wedding, July 2016
Brian and his team did a fantastic job catering our wedding! From the initial planning stages to the big day, they went above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.
Our guests loved the food! The serving team were also professional and helpful throughout the day.
Please thank Brian again, he did such a good job, and stayed so relaxed.
Wedding, June 2016
I'm sure you're very busy over the summer with parties and weddings but just wanted to say a huge thanks again for the great food you served up on 25th June!
I know we said on the Sunday what a great job you'd done for us Brian (people are still talking about the amazing lamb!) but we just wanted to thank you both for all your help in the preparations leading up to the day and for making it so special.
We highly recommend you to everyone and wish you all the best as your business grows.
Zoë & Steve, Tom & Emilia
Wedding, June 2016
We booked Clementine Catering at short notice (just 7 weeks before the big event), luckily they were able to facilitate us. Their professionalism doubled with their caring attitude made Robyn and Ricky’s wedding guests the best fed in the county!
I have had so many compliments on the food and service from the guests, everything was delicious. From the canapés, right through the wedding breakfast and on to the hog roast, all exceeded my expectations.
Wedding, June 2016
As far as I'm concerned, it was the best wedding there ever was!
Clementine were wonderful throughout. They were helpful with advising in the set up the day before, and very accommodating for all our needs. All the guests were commenting on the food (especially the choccy dessert) and all the staff were great. They truly made the day run more smoothly and added to the fun and occasion.
Thank you so much for everything,
Wedding, June 2016
A huge thank you to Brian and the team at Clementine Catering - you really helped our wedding day run smoothly. The service was fantastic from my first enquiry right though until the end of our day.
The food was perfect, and our guests were very complimentary, particularly about the Hog Roast and the Bakewell Tart. The team were great, professional and friendly all day long.
I will have no hesitation in recommending and using Clementine Catering again.
Wedding, June 2016
Thank you so much for your amazing catering at our wedding - we have had so many people tell us how lovely and original the food was, and the service was professional and flawless.
From the very start of planning you have been incredibly helpful and accommodated all of our requests with ease - thank you for making something that should have been stressful so enjoyable!
We will confidently recommend you and your team to anybody looking for exceptional catering for any event.
We hope to have an excuse to use you again soon!
Oli and Kate
Party, June 2016
Just to say thank you so much for the wonderful food on Saturday, everyone who has contacted me after the party has said it was lovely. Josh the barman was lovely and everyone had a brilliant time - back to normality now! Perhaps next time I may have you do it all.
Thanks very much again.
Wedding, May 2016
Brian and his team were fantastic. He helped us with every stage of the process, from planning the menu to table layouts to presentation of the food, and at every stage went over and beyond our expectations. We have received so many compliments on the fantastic food and would highly recommend Clementine Catering for any large event or wedding.
Thank you Brian and team.
Lorn and Russ
Retirement Party, April 2016
I wanted to email you to say a huge THANK YOU for your brilliant catering at my Retirement Party on Saturday. I had many complementary comments on the quality and taste of the food and the variety that was served and all in a very professional manner. I was so glad that you had provided the cutlery and crockery and cleared away at the end - this saved me the task the next day!
I will certainly pass on your name if I hear of anyone looking for a good catering company just as Andy did! Well done Andy and thank you!
Can you please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team who worked hard to ensure the BBQ was a success. Thanks again and all the best.
Christening, April 2016
I have been meaning to email you to thank you so much for the wonderful lunch you provided for Isabel's Christening - it really was perfect. Lunch was delivered on the dot of 9am as arranged (such a help during rather a busy morning!), the food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was fantastic.
The service you provided was above all my expectations, and I am absolutely delighted that we have found you - you will definitely be our first port of call for any future parties!
I have already highly recommended you to several people, and will continue to do so. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the lunch and grateful for your help.
Dinner Party, January 2016
I really don't think I have the words to express how brilliant our Quiz Team dinner party was. Having never used a caterer in my own home before, I was feeling quite nervous. I need not have worried as you put me at my ease and produced a wonderful 3 course dinner for the ten of us on my especially hot Aga!
Each course was stunningly presented and equally delicious; our friends were bowled over at the quality and service you provided. They have taken your details away to devise events where they can use you in the future. Also, it was fantastic not to have to do the washing up! The dogs think you are fantastic too although they would have preferred to 'help' you a little more than they did.
Thank you for providing such a successful dinner. We will definitely use you again.
Wedding, January 2016
Both Adrian and I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. Everybody at the wedding commented on how great the food was, and it was good to have something different from the standard wedding breakfast.
From start to finish everything was amazing. The food, yourself and you're staff made our day even better.
Again thank you, every step of the way you were helpful and so reasonable, it made such a nice surprise you didn't raise your price as soon as you heard the word wedding. We will definitely use you again.
Kathryn and Adrian
Wedding, November 2015
Hello Brian and team,
Apologies for being so slow in letting you know how grateful we were for all your hard work in executing the catering for our wedding weekend; the wedding supper was great and went very well, your team were very helpful and accommodating! Also for the buffet on the Sunday which was well received, despite me forgetting my strawberry jam, initially!
Wishing you all the very best for the future and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Clementine Catering to others.
Christening, October 2015
Brian and his team have provided the catering for both our wedding in April 2014 and more recently for our daughter's christening in October 2015.
Brian and his staff have a magical way of making you feel completely at ease with organising your event and nothing is ever too much trouble. Brian provided everything from bar staff, tables and cutlery, to a full roast dinner for our wedding as well puddings and a hog roast buffet for our evening guests. All was lovingly prepared in a small tent at the back of our barn and it was all top quality! It made our wedding day that much more relaxed and special.
So, when it came to our daughter's christening it was with no question that we decided to use Clementine Catering, and again their service was faultless and arranged to deliver our fork buffet to the village hall before the event and collect later in the day, they were prompt and friendly and even helped with setting up and took away our dirty plates so no mess and no fuss.
Fabulous service all round, recommended 100%.
James and Holly Bailey
Informal private party at Swallowfield Park, October 2015
Thank you very much indeed for the delicious food, lots of compliments from my guests. Kids loved the chicken goujons, which says a lot as they are fussy eaters. I particularly liked the puff pastries, but it was the canapés with duck and plum sauce that proved the most popular among my guests. No, sorry, number one in the popularity contest turned out to be the tiramisu, the duck canapés came second.
I very much appreciate it that you took the trouble to prepare separate food for my gluten-allergic friend (and so did my friend). And that you let me have trays to display the food, and that you came right on time, i.e. all those minor things that made me less stressed before the party.
And thank you, Francesca, for patience and kind co-operation.
My experience with Clementine Catering has been excellent, and I wish you get a lot of new orders and the business prosper. Have been recommending you to my friends, will definitely come back, and once again very many thanks.
Wedding, October 2015
I'd just like to repeat what I said to you on the day of Izzy and Adam's wedding: Clementine are a great company. It was so lovely from the start to know we were talking to someone with a passion for food who also wanted to do exactly what the customer wanted for their special day.
As you know, Izzy as a vegetarian was keen to have a caterer who understood that vegetarians deserve interesting food as much as meat eaters, and that was what you provided. Everyone was happy with the choices available and we had lots of compliments from guests about the food.
We were also delighted with the way you and your staff handled the day: you arrived, got on with the job without fluster, did everything right and then packed it all away leaving us with nothing to worry about. Excellent food, excellent service; a perfect professional product.
Thank you so much from all of us for helping make the day so successful. I'd happily recommend you to any future customers if you want to give them my email address.
Commitment Ceremony & Hog Roast, September 2015
Brian is fabulous amazing & everything positive!
His culinary skills went down a treat at my Commitment Ceremony as did his Hog Roast in the evening. Look no further for amazing food.
Thank you Brian & Francesca - you helped to make our day the brilliant occasion that it was.
Dee & Gary
Hog Roast, September 2015
We enjoyed a brilliant service from Brian and his team on Sunday. The food was great and beautifully presented. The servers were always in the right place at the right time and made the event go like clockwork. So tidy too.
We would definitely use them again. Thanks so much!
Hog Roast, August 2015
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how delighted we were with the food and service on Saturday night.
Everyone was blown away by the food – it was absolutely delicious.
Barbecue, August 2015
I booked Brian to cater for a BBQ for my husbands 50th birthday as we had 36 guests coming. He gave us a menu to choose from which had plenty of choice. The food was excellent and we had lots of comments from our friends about how much they had enjoyed it. We would certainly use him again and would highly recommend him.
Barbecue, August 2015
Very many thanks indeed for providing us with a superb BBQ, everything was really good quality and tasty, there was plenty for everyone and we had lots of appreciative comments from our friends. The Crème Brûlée was a definite favourite!
We were really impressed with the whole service, from the first meeting to discuss our party right through to the final clearing away. Your team were all very pleasant, friendly and helpful. You will certainly be our first choice for catering in the future and we would recommend you wholeheartedly.
Barbecue, August 2015
... a big thank you for helping to make our family gathering such a success. The food was all fantastic and we had many wonderful comments, plus it didn't rain and was quite warm at times, so all in all a great day.
Kind regards and thanks for everything,
Pat Cruttenden and Kathy Groom
Barbecue and Dinner, July 2015
Excellent service for our staff bbq in the afternoon only to be up staged with our evening sit down meal. Worked out cheaper then having it at a restaurant.
Well done and even more thank you chef Brian and his team for a memorable day.
Wedding Breakfast, July 2015
Absolutely fantastic service, attitude and most importantly, incredible food! I would recommend Brian to anyone! He has done everything in his power to make sure our wedding breakfast was perfect and I can't fault him or his staff!
Dinner Party, July 2015
Thank you and your team so much for your contribution towards making last night’s party such a huge success.
The food was absolutely delicious and I have already had some really good comments from the guests saying how much they enjoyed the canapes and the hog roast.
We certainly had a lot of pork left over (thanks for popping it into the fridge) so I have sent my children home with food parcels!
Once again very many thanks.
Afternoon Tea, July 2015
Just a quick email to say many thanks for providing afternoon tea. Thank you for coping with my disorganisation and for providing a last minute gluten-free option. The food was lovely and everyone had a fabulous time. Thank you too for clearing up and taking away the dirty crockery!
Hog Roast, June 2015
Still enjoying such tasty leftovers from our fabulous hog roast this weekend for Dean's birthday celebrations. Thank you so much to Clementine Catering for superb food and service.
We hope to use your services again in the future x
Wedding, May 2015
Brian and all of his staff at Clementine Catering helped to make our wedding a marvellous day. All of our guests commented on the very high quality of the food and service. In a “challenging” little marquee, with less than ideal catering facilities Brian came up trumps and delivered a first class service.
We would recommend him and his outfit to anybody. Thank you so much.
Kate & Brian Turner
Art Exhibition, May 2015
Many thanks to Brian and Clementine Catering for a superb selection of delicious canapés and bellini cocktails which made for the perfect accompaniment to the exhibition.
The presentation and service were both excellent and I would not hesitate to use Clementine Catering again for future events. Highly recommended!
Wedding Reception, August 2014
We wish to thank you so much for the catering service you recently provided for our wedding reception at my home. There were 180 guests, and every one of them, that we spoke to, commented on how delicious the food was, what a wide range of dishes were available and how helpful, friendly and accommodating you and your staff were.
We would also like to thank you for the service you provided with the drinks, and supplying the glasses. Again your staff worked tirelessly and so hard, serving the drinks, collecting the glasses, and all with a smile on their face.
Thank you, also, for your continual support, help and input over the many months of preparations, prior to the event, even going to the trouble to cook taster dishes for us to try before the actual day.
We believe the overall service you provided was way above and beyond what we could possibly have expected from any other caterer, and for that we are truly grateful.
Finally, we would not hesitate to use you again, and recommend you to any of our friends or relatives.
With my deepest gratitude,
Swanmore Summer Ball, June 2014
The food was fantastic and many compliments have been received, so many thanks from us all for helping make the evening a great success. We will be back in touch in two years' time for the next ball.
