Poppy Caterers could not have been more helpful and
professional from the moment we first contacted them to cater
for our daughter's wedding. The food was outstanding and the
service of exceptional quality from all of the team. We would
not hesitate to recommend Simon, Val and Charlotte and their
team.

The Merchant Taylors Hall

Val and the team went above and beyond to help us create our
perfect day. We are foodies and worried that mass catering
would result in a bland banquet menu but the team designed
bespoke dishes that were thoroughly delicious. The Chef also
worked hard to create a tasty vegetarian menu for me and
signature cocktails to fit with the festive theme. The team
also dressed the venue as part of our package to ensure that
we didn't waste money and stick within our budget.
Sarah Fussey
Poppy Caterers provided an excellent service for our big
day. A truly delicious Menu, with so many fresh ingredients
and contemporary recipes. perfect for the hot summer day we
were lucky enough to enjoy. 
Poppy Caterers went above and beyond making sure personal
choices were incorporated into the Menu which felt much more
personalised than other caterers , especially in their
affordable price bracket. Running a bar far us and managing
the day with all food and drink aspects we could not have
asked for more, especially the Canapés and bubbly reception
was a winner.
Zara Maigre 
Poppy Catering made our wedding a real pleasure to organise.
Their catering is exceptional, their prices are very
reasonable, and Val really knows how to make things run
smoothly and anticipate any logistical issues long before
they arise. Nothing was too difficult for her, and all of the
Poppy staff were true professionals. Thank you!
James Smith
Everything done to perfection Well mannered and dressed
smart. Great food and service. Catered for all dietary needs.
We had lots of comments from guests about food and service.
In fact my friend who attended has booked them for her sons
wedding.
Pauline Atkinson 
2 months before my wedding due to unforeseen circumstances I
had to change my wedding. In a complete frenzy and extremely
stressed I contacted Poppy's caters. Firstly they phoned me
back the same day and arranged to meet me the next day.
Immediately Val put me at ease, was extremely helpful, gave
me some 'extras' in my package for free. My wedding reception
was amazing, food delicious, staff efficient and nothing was
too much trouble. Many of my guests commented on how nice the
reception was and I believe the high standards set by Poppy
caters deserves to be recognised.
Wendy Heath
'I cannot fault the building or the team at all. 
Our wedding came at a difficult time. We were trying to move
the wedding along at a very quick pace due to the terminal
illness of one of our mothers. This meant not only did we
have to do things incredibly quickly, but some meetings had
to take place on loudspeaker in the hospital, pictures and
emails needed to be sent back and forth so we could keep my
mum in the loop and also because of the stress we were
already under we wanted to know that we were in safe hands
with the wedding. 
We could not have picked better - the team were brilliant
from start to finish, beyond helpful and so so friendly. 
It genuinely was one of the best days of my life and we owe a
lot of that to poppy catering! 
If we hadn't found Poppy Catering I don't think we would have
gone ahead with the wedding at such difficult time.
Matthew Harper
They were amazing at looking after my father-in-law with his food
allergies. Everyone said they had a wonderful day and the food was
fabulous. I would like to thank Val and her team for all their help
and wonderful service.
