'Carole and Fiona were marvellous and got on really well with all my friends.....making the whole party a very enjoyable and relaxed occasion for both my friends and ourselves. The food was delicious and I have given a card to many friends. The whole evening flowed effortlessly (thanks to Carole and Fiona)and I am very grateful to all your team. It has very much the feel of a close knit team working together, with splendid results. I was also very grateful to Ellen who put the whole proposal together and was very accessible on the phone to sort out any worries. Do carry on your very good work, and please thank Fiona and Carole and Ellen.....and of course the chefs who created simply wonderful food!'

'I wanted to immediately thank you all for your amazing support, to what turned out to be an absolutely wonderful party yesterday afternoon. I have already received numerous comments and compliments from many of my family and friends on the fantastic food and service provided by Connexions. Lynda, Andrea and Richard were superb ambassadors for your company. They made such a difference to the experience, thanks to their fantastic organisation and integration into the party. They were on top of absolutely everything and so thoughtful in helping us orchestrate its success by going above and beyond my expectations. The food was divine - such high quality, delicious and beautifully presented. It was great to see many returning for seconds or trying out everything on the menu. I did actually manage to grab a plate of the Fish pie...and now looking forward to sitting down with husband and daughter this afternoon with a huge helping of the Beef Daube (great doggy bag) as everyone highly recommended. Please do pass on again our huge thanks to Lynda, they make a great team and she was superb in managing every detail imaginable - so efficiently and in such a warm and friendly manner. Best wishes to all. You truly deserve your high class reputation.'

'Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team for making Mark's 60th Birthday Tea such a stress free event yesterday. Everything was managed with absolute efficiency, politeness and smiles. The selection of sandwiches and cakes was great and there were many compliments from everyone present. The amount of food provided was more than enough for our very hungry guests and we have enjoyed the leftovers! It was also lovely to have everything cleared away and the kitchen left clean and tidy. The bar manager was hugely impressed. Mark and I will be very happy to recommend your services to any of our friends that are looking for caterers.Once again, many thanks for helping us to have such a wonderful afternoon.'

Ian Legg November 2017
'I wanted to say thank you so much to all your staff who looked after us so well last Monday. I knew I didn’t have to worry about anything, and I was right! The rooms at the church were transformed into a welcoming venue. I was speaking to so many people after the funeral, I hardly had time to step in the door of the function room. However everything was in full swing by the time I got there. Thank you for designating one or two members of staff to look after me – that was a master-stroke. A glass of wine was put into my hand, and an endless stream of delicious food was presented. I think it worked well to have the staff circulating with the food. Everything was delicious, and the left overs were quickly divided up to go off to various homes at the end of the day!'
Susanna Shelton November 2017
'Your service was well organized and delivered what we had hoped for. I especially liked seeing the hot food coming out after our weary trip to the crematorium.

'You beat me to it with your email, as I was planning to drop you a line today to say how fantastic everything was yesterday! The team were great, they were so helpful and an absolute pleasure to have in our house and as part of the day (and lots of our guests commented on this as well) – we were very happy with how they organised everything and I felt completely confident to just hand over to them and let them run things in the way they thought best. Likewise, the food was excellent, everyone loved it and really tucked in (although I'm pleased our guests left us with some leftovers so that we get to enjoy it again tonight!) Mark and I are delighted with how the day went and, importantly for us, it was great that we got to relax and enjoy it as well as everyone else. We have had lots of lovely compliments from those who came along about how the day went, and using Connexions was a massive part of that.

‘Wow! What a service you provide. You and the team absolutely surpassed all expectations. Loads of great compliments from our guests, and I guess most importantly, Claire herself. The crayfish & avocado and Thai fishcakes were my particular fave canapés and people raved about the watermelon, mint and feta ones too. I had the lamb and couscous wrap - but again all varieties went down very well! All the food was just delicious. I think what will also stay with me is the way all six of you worked so professionally and efficiently at a busy and boisterous 21st party! You all had smiles throughout the night, and managed our event seamlessly (even down to relieving me of the various beautiful flowers I received throughout the evening). I really can't thank you enough for all your hard work, dedication and kindness. A great, great job!!!!!!’
Jo Baker July 2017
‘Clive and I were delighted with the Connexions Cuisine catering yesterday. Natacha, Laura and Emma were a marvellous team – they were professional and discreet, yet friendly and warm – what a great combination. Please say a big thank you to them – especially for their patience when I lost my camera every ten minutes! The attention to detail was excellent. Our family’s thank you emails have been coming in, and everyone has been full of praise. Everything went well despite the sweltering conditions. The food was absolutely outstanding – please thank all those involved in the catering. Thank you for adding the extra sausages which we had at the start – very helpful as we waited for late comers. The birthday boy’s favourite dish was the seared salmon while mine was the smoked chicken and avocado salad. Everyone loved the Thai beef salad and the mixed tomatoes – I love Heritage tomatoes and some of our guests had never seen them. Then the desserts….what a triumph. All three were delicious but everyone raved about the dark chocolate torte. And of course the children were very happy with their snack boxes – a perfect combination of nibbles for them. All in all, you helped us have a wonderful day. I have warned Clive I could get used to having you come and cater for us from now on!! We are both agreed that you have got an impressive, professional operation going – everything from the website to your visit and communication before the event. But the proof of the pudding as the saying goes, is the meal on the day – and you and your staff certainly delivered everything that you promised, and more. Thank you again.
Susanna Shelton July 2017
‘Thank you so much for organising the catering for my 60th. You excelled in every way, as I knew you would. It was so calming to hear connexions knock on the door, and in an instant restore calm and order to a nigh on hysterical 60year old! We had such a great party.’
Barbara Smith June 2017
‘Thanks to your team for their hard work on Sunday, the christening was very successful. George, Lynda and the team were punctual, efficient and very hard-working, I was most impressed.

I hope you keep well and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

‘Jayne and George were absolutely great. Please do tell them how happy we were. I received so many compliments about not only the food itself, but the way in which it was presented. My guests enjoyed popping up to the buffet to try a different dish and the way the desserts were presented at the tables was just perfect. Thank you also for your kind gift of the wine book and the chocolates, all of which I will thoroughly enjoy.

‘Many thanks for your wonderful service yesterday at my mother’s funeral in Beadon Road. Helen and Linda were indeed superb from the moment they arrived so calm in a crisis (my brother’s family were delayed and almost missed it) and so quick to learn the layout. When we arrived back after the service they were there with a tray of drinks to welcome us and the back garden was transformed. I stopped in my tracks and gasped. It was everything I dreamed of for the party. Knots of guests gathered round tables full of delicious food, a table full of polished glasses and more wine. Whenever we needed hep it was at hand, yet I never saw either of them run. The food looked and tasted delicious and various people commented on how good it was, especially the lemon drizzle cake! And then the clear up was magnificent and they left the kitchen spotless.Many many thanks. We could not have asked for better service.’

Anne Kirby, 16th November 2016
We would like to thank you very much for catering for us at Oaks Farm. We had a lovely day and everyone enjoyed the food - many people went back for second helpings! I had the fish pie and butternut squash which I enjoyed immensely, along with the cheese cake. Your staff were very attentive - please thank them for us. I was very touched to see one lady taking round a tray of Fruit Shoots to our younger guests. We would be very pleased to recommend Connexions.’
Esther and Stuart, 13th November 2016
‘I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to both of you for making our wedding day so perfect (despite the rain!). We had the most incredible time and it's wouldn't of been the same without your professional and friendly efforts!’
Sarah Buckett, 13th October 2016

‘Just a quick email to let you know that the meal at the Croydon Business Awards was amazing (nearly as good as my wedding at Oaks Farm the other year!) Everyone at the table was full of praise especially for the pudding.’
Nikki Davies, 6th October 2016
‘Thank you for your email - your ladies Jayne and Sarah were simply superb - everything was absolutely great - they both worked so hard I felt redundant in my own home which was strange but good. The way they ensured everyone was constantly topped up and looked after was brilliant - the stress of the day was lightened as my guests were looked after so so well - the champagne reception was perfect and the food was first class. I would be more than happy to write a testimonial for your website - everyone commented on how efficient and organised your ladies were and how much hard work they put into the day. I can't thank you enough and would definitely recommend you to anyone in a similar situation’
Andrea Lach, 22nd September 2016
‘Thank you so much for looking after us so well yet again (3rd time). Jayne and Emma were brilliant. Only sorry I hardly spoke to them but I knew they were so capable, and it was so stress free for me to have them in control. Everybody liked the food. There were lots of favourable comments.’
Jill Creak, 21st September 2016
‘We just wanted to let you know that we and all our 50th birthday party guests had an absolutely fantastic time on Saturday 17th September! From our initial food tasting back in April right through to our actual party, both yourself, Sharon and all the team on the night have been the consummate professionals. The food, as we already knew from our initial tasting session, was absolutely delicious and beautifully cooked and presented on the night of the party. From arrival to departure Sharon and her team were personable, super organised and ensured that we were simply left to greet all our guests and enjoy our special evening with them, without having to think about anything else. The team effortlessly took care of assembling our four tier cake, cooking the food and seamlessly ensuring that all our guests’ glasses were topped up and the bar was fully stocked throughout the evening. The team left the whole kitchen area spotlessly clean, having organised all the recycling too, which was a real godsend to wake up to after the party! Although we thanked the team on the night, do please convey to them again how pleased we were with all their hard work. All our guests commented on how lovely all the food was and how great the Connexions staff were. We have had some really lovely comments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed themselves and how we really know how to put on a great party and Connexions played a big part in this. We know who to call for our next party! Although there is quite a choice of caterers out there, Connexions Cuisine definitely offers a service to rival and knock spots off of the competition, as we experienced for ourselves both before and during Saturday night. It is plain to see why your company wins the hospitality business awards. Thank you also for the Eat London2 Book, which is a lovely idea.’
Angela and David Morgan, 22nd September 2016

Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication."

‘I would like to thank you and your team for the fantastic job you did on Saturday night. There have been so many compliments about the delicious food and the very professional service. Your team could not have been more helpful and it was such a relief for me to know we were in very reliable hands. It meant I could relax and enjoy the evening. They went way beyond the call of duty even serving the cheese and biscuits which we provided and were not part of your duties that night. Without exception your team were efficient, very friendly and so willing to help. Our very sincere thanks for such a professional service and for the absolutely delicious food. It was fantastic and really played a huge part in the success and enjoyment of the evening."
Beverley Steven, Beckenham Rugby Club, 22nd June 16
"I would just like to say that all the ladies were wonderful yesterday at our garden party. They were all very helpful, friendly and cheerful even when it looked like we would get absolutely soaked! The final stragglers left at about 8pm which, I think, is a sign that everyone had a thoroughly good time. Lots of people picked up your cards and I would be very surprised if you didn’t get a few more bookings in the near future."
Joanne Huxley, 13th June 16
"We really had the most brilliant day, so many of our guests couldn't stop raving about the food and the perfect service so glad we picked Connexions. Thank you and your team for all your hard work. Will definitely recommend you to people in the future."

Also several of the guests complemented the food and the variety and quality of the ingredients. I would be more than happy to recommend your service and have already passed your details on to some of my guests.’"
Seamus and Caroline, 19th July 16
" Fantastic’, ‘amazing’, ‘incredible’, ‘delicious’ – these are just a few of our thoughts and many of our friends and family who ate your delicious menu!

We will certainly enjoy discovering new places to eat in London! P.S. we hope Trisha continues making her new signature cocktail the Trisha Twist."
Sian and Adam, 13th June 16

Emma and Sam, 11th June 16
"Thank you for all that did, the food was excellent. Everyone commented on it and enjoyed it – although I was amazed that two to three hours later they were all scoffing a cream tea! The kitchen was left tidy and everything was satisfactory and we are now eating our way through the leftovers! I notice that no desserts were left over! But thank you again for your excellent service."

Our guests, many of them local, were very impressed and as well as the cards requested from Sharon, I had a few people ask “who did the food? It was great”
Mark thoroughly enjoyed himself – it was a great evening with great food, music and dancing. We have had some lovely thank you’s – Mark says he wants to do it every year!!
