I was trying to arrange the catering for my Father’s wake, and after several false starts, happened across Jacksons Catering. It was a complicated event to arrange – we were organising everything remotely, hadn’t been able to view the venue in advance, and had no idea how many people we were expecting. Nonetheless, Emma was both prompt in her responses and helpful in sorting everything out. She made great suggestions for the menu and welcomed any changes and additions I made.
When we arrived the venue hadn’t been set up, but Emma and her team got on and arranged everything. They had a real “can do” attitude. When I arrived after the funeral, feeling rather emotionally drained, I found that everything had been brilliantly set up. It meant that I could spend the next few hours chatting to friends of my Dad’s without having to worry about anything. After the event, the team took down all the tables and chairs and cleared up perfectly.
At least 10 people told me that the food was delicious – which I absolutely agree with. The fresh scones were a particular revelation! I only regret I didn’t get time to eat more of them.
I couldn’t imagine better food, service and responsiveness and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jackson’s Catering or to use them again.
