“Always a joy to come and see Martyn and Debbie!”

“Fantastic people to greet us! Always love the cheesy garlic bread and the rest of the food is beautiful! And then I was surprised by a beautiful birthday cake brought in by Debbie and they sung me happy birthday! Thank you so much and I hope you enjoyed the cake! Highly recommend them!”

“Wow! Thanks so much Debbie and your team for a fantastic party. “

We hired the garden and Debbie provided a buffet for my daughter’s 3rd Birthday and it was just perfect. The custom buffet was delicious and very plentiful, and reasonably priced. The hosts could not have been more helpful and accommodating, we were very well looked after. Great communication through the planning process, just lovely people. The garden is great for kids and we hired a bouncy castle. See you again soon.”
