Thoroughly recommend Natalie and her team for outside catering. The menu choices were carefully put together, the food of course was excellent. The estimates and invoicing were spot on. Natalie and her team set up the "vintage afternoon tea" at our venue , it looked beautiful, on tiered cake stands, with separate menu for the children. The mini meringues and mini scones and cream were delicious. Natalie whizzed around with the bubbly, ensuring that the guests were looked after, then cleared everything away afterwards. It was great to be able to relax and enjoy the special family day, knowing that the catering was in such professional hands.

We couldn't have asked for a more reliable and friendly team as we planned our celebration! We worked closely with Natalie, who was always relaxed and full of good ideas. The food was delicious and excellent value. On the evening of our party, all of the staff were cheerful and efficient. The pre-arranged decorations were all in order and the grounds of the cafe created a beautiful setting for our event - even in the rain! Plus, the staff were incredibly flexible when some of our guests arrived early - we are so thankful for the accommodating and warm welcome they received. We couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled on this little gem and we can't recommend it highly enough!

The food is nice, the service is fine & the place is spotless, however I can't understand why cheap condiments are used as well as the horrible cutlery and napkins that you could literally see through. The food is not cheap, so I felt a little let down by the cutlery etc. Hey ho, you can't have everything I suppose. .

We have just held our wedding reception at the garden cafe, it was absolutely amazing, tapas under gazebos outside the cafe in the afternoon then disco dancing and another buffett in the cafe until late in the evening in the cafe, nothing was too much trouble and everything ran smoothly, the food and staff was amazing, we had the most perfect day, we would highly recommend it. Our guests were also full of compliments, everyone had such great food and fun in the sunshine in an amazing setting.

I needed to find a fab venue with outdoor space for a company event and praise be to the independent quality food and wine gods/goddesses for leading me to The Garden Café. Pre event meetings were relaxed, powered by excellent Flat Whites, and what made the whole experience a pleasure was working with Juliette and Natalie along with their excellent staff. The evening event was a blast, despite some inevitable last minute requests and changes, nothing was too much trouble and the Café team were happy to play things by ear as well as help me out no end to get trees decorated, lanterns lit and fizz chilled. They provided excellent healthy-ish picnic lunches with delicious homemade slabs of brownies and flapjacks and the evening catering was fantastic. A BBQ for 70-80 of top quality meat and veg options. I could not recommend working with this team highly enough. Whatever you have in mind they will make it work. Big thanks and thumbs up from me.
