I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team. It was a delight organising the party with you. And then everything went like clockwork. The chef was superb in pulling the kitchen together. We had many complements on the food, which all went! Also, I think the kitchen was cleaner after he left than it was to start, so that was magic. The Gazebos worked exactly as planned, and with the sides on, the temperature was OK for sitting out until quite late. The high tables and chairs out there were well used, again as hoped. The bar lady was great keeping the bar going very smoothly, with drinks and ice and lemons. That freed us up from having to keep glasses and stuff under control, so I could mingle without any effort. And you kept that food coming and clearing away. And the pick up next day was perfect. It was a wonderful memorable event.

jacqui yates
we had a family celebration at our nursery and paella was a hit, great service and great food. very pleased.
I was a guest at my brother’s wedding that you catered on Saturday. I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your staff. You really helped the day to run well and make sure everyone was feed and ‘watered’ well. In all interactions I had with your staff they were polite, kind, professional and thoughtful. They worked tirelessly and were adaptable to changes, especially when the rain meant we all had to move inside at the last moment! The food was delicious and the fact that you could provide such high quality food from a less than ideal kitchen area was amazing. I would highly recommend you for any future events.
Lindsay jespersen
Cannot recommend Event Catering Group enough! They catered our wedding with 150 guests - canapes, main meal, drinks, evening food and a bar in the evening. They were the best value caterers I found throughout Surrey but the service and quality of the food was incredible. Some of our guests commented to us that it was the best wedding food they had! They staff were all lovely and very professional, they catered for all our dietary needs and last minute changes and a lot of guests were having seconds (and some even thirds!) We are so grateful to the whole team who contributed in making our wedding day the delight that it was. Thank you all!

We were very happy with the service provided for a 60th birthday garden party. Despite the constant rain on the day, our chef Jonathan was always hard working,  friendly and gave excellent customer service. Each of the paella options was delicious and attracted many compliments from our party guests. 
We had a BBQ lunch for 600 people and hired Event Catering Group. Darren and the team behind him are amazing and very accommodating. The food was great and we are happy customers. thank you
Nicola Facer
We booked the team at Event Catering Group for my 50th birthday celebrations. I loved the idea of having a paella pan - they didn't disappoint! We also had canapés served during the afternoon before the spectacle in the evening. A huge thank you to the team, the food was amazing. Have had a number of friends comment on how wonderful the food was .... always a good sign. We would definitely recommend. Can promise that any future catering requirements we have would definitely book again. The real plus was that they were a local company - always good to support local businesses. Thanks again guys.
Ian Patenall
Thanks to Darren for wonderful food which was greatly appreciated by all those at the party. Every part of the organising of his efforts went very smoothly, with great help from Michelle. It was good value for money and Darren was prepared for every eventuality.
Sue Flint
We have used Darren and the team for several years for our annual staff summer BBQ. They always turn up in plenty of time, are friendly and give a very professional service. The food is always lovely, hot and well presented. I will be using them again, and would recommend them.
Lucy Wilson
We were very impressed with the service we received. A very professional company that looked after themselves and our guests so that we could enjoy our party. The food was delicious and with a wide variety there was something for all of our guests to enjoy. I would highly recommend this company and will use them again when we next have a party. Thank you Michelle and the rest of the team!
Annie Clark
We were very grateful to Darren and his Team who helped us out with bar staff for a works summer event we hosted at home. This is the second year we have used Darren and his Team, but this year we didn't leave a lot a lot of time to spare and they went out of their way to ensure they could get us someone to run our bar. The bar person was fantastic. Lovely, friendly and willing to help out with our event and made our colleagues feel very special with her personal touch and excellent service. She kept the bar running smoothly and left it all lovely, clean & tidy when she left. They have a great glass hire service too ! So grateful for all their help and in fact we are booking them again for a family BBQ to celebrate our Son's 18th birthday.
Sam Garrett
Just a note to say thank you so much for making our Wedding Reception so special. All of the staff were so professional, courteous, thoughtful and engaged with our guests. Special thanks to Lee for an amazing Hog Roast and Mary for such amazing Bar service. From start to finish the whole team made the whole process from initial enquiry to clear up so relaxed, easy and ran as smooth as we could have imagined. We has so many compliments on the food on and after the day – we would not hesitate to recommend your company
Holly Mantripp
Wow. What can I say about Event Catering Group. I can honestly say they have been an absolute dream to work with. From the very beginning of our wedding planning, our delicious tasting meal by the wonderful Darren to me constantly asking questions about how it all worked! (I do love an email) Michelle would always get back to me so quickly and every question I had was answered and no requirements were too much. We had to change parts of our wedding quite last minute but Michelle, Darren and the team were more than happy to assist with the changes with no problem but also offered ideas and assistance with everything along the way. Now for the wedding - the FOOD was incredible. We had so many people compliment how unique and amazing it was from the canapes, the wedding breakfast (Tapas and Paella) to the hog roast. The Waitressing staff were so professional and so friendly. Exactly what you want at your wedding!! I can not recommend them enough. Any event that we need food for in the future I will be coming straight back. Thank you so so much for making our wedding great! xx
Thank you! We couldn’t have imagined better service and food for our wedding. The whole team was so friendly, but discrete and did an amazing job. Delicious paella. We had comments from many guests on how great the caterers and bar staff were.
We recently used Event Catering Group for a party to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We catered for 60 adults and chose 3 different curries. The set up was prompt and timely, staff courteous and efficient and we got lots of compliments from our guests! An excellent service all round . Thanks!

I was recommended event catering ltd by a friend who was very pleased with the food and service they provided for her 50th birthday party. As such I asked them to provide food for my 60th party. I was absolutely delighted with the service and attention to detail I received. The staff could not have been more helpful and nothing was to much trouble. On the evening of the party Lee the cook was on time and extremely helpful and accommodating. My friends were very complimentary about the food which was two paella dishes. The food was delicious .It was great not to have to worry about providing our own food when you knew it was being cooked out on the patio to a high standard. The food was served on boats that could be recycled along with the cutlery. I would recommend Event catering group ltd without reservation.
Katherine Lindquist
Darren and his amazing team were the only choice for us when we were planning our wedding! So much so in fact that we disregarded any venues where we couldn’t bring in our own caterers! Darren and Michelle made the planning so easy; they were so relaxed and nothing was too much trouble. On the day, both food and service were exceptional. The canapes were sublime and the kids (and adults) loved being able to see the hog roast; they loved eating it even more! Almost a year on, our guests are still talking about the food and how friendly the staff were! The team went above and beyond in helping our guests; Crystal even helped distract an upset toddler with her phone during the speeches! Event Catering really are fantastic, professional, friendly and I would unreservedly reccommend them to anyone.

Darren and team undertook the catering at our recent Commodores Suprise evening. Everything was excellent from the prompt time of arrival to the professional staff. Excellent food and good humour. We would certainly recommend them.
Simon Kaye
Used Big Pan Paella and Bar service for my 60th Birthday Party. Highly recommend the service they provided was brilliant and they were so helpful with the last minute adjustments due to the Great British weather! Paella was sensational all our guests have kept commenting on how delicious it was and the bar staff were brilliant at serving and keeping people topped up. Thank you!
Food and service was great. Cant complain at all, loved it. Good job!
Stuart Wilson
Thank you Darren, Michelle and the team for doing such a great job at our party. You provided an excellent service all evening (and well into the morning :)) with delicious food, perfectly served. I am sure you will be receiving other bookings from our guests as they were also very impressed. If I had 6 stars I would give you them! Thanks again.
Denise Nanovich-Walker
We first experienced the paella team at a friends anniversary party and decided to try them for our garden party rather than have a BBQ. The smell of the paella being cooked was very tantalising and everyone said how good it tasted, going back for seconds and even thirds! Lee cooked pasta and chicken goujons for the children, which went down very well. We would highly recommend them and will definitely be having the paella team again.
Matt Selby
Darren and his team delivered a sensational wedding breakfast for us. Canapés were first class and the hog / lamb roast main went down a treat. Great to hear guests comment on the quality of the food. Loved being able to trust in a company to deliver on such a special day for us! Well done Event Catering. Job well done :-)
Joan Livingston
Have used Darren and his team for many years, starting with my 50th, then 60h and now 70th. The years have flown and Darren is still as good as he was many years ago. This year he did a bbq for us. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and there was moe than enough. His team make the day so much easier and relaxed. Thank you very much.
