I have been a regular customer of Sarah Kirk for about 29 years. She was recommended to me by a colleague and I have often recommended her to other friends. During this time she has catered for me on many occasions which have included a wedding and my daughter’s 30th birthday party.
She is extremely hard working and has always performed her duties in a proper manner. She provides first class food, an efficient and unobtrusive service and leaves my kitchen clean and tidy. She is utterly trustworthy, and I have been confident leaver her and her staff in my house when I have been absent. I have heard nothing but praise from those to whom I have recommended her.

Thank you very much for your slick organisation for our Quencentennial Dinner. It all went according to plan on the day after the flood and the quality of your food and service was excellent. In fact we did not receive one complaint.

Thank you so much for making our wish to use the school dining room a reality, we were all stunned by the quality of the food your team managed to produce in a small tent on a sloping car park, in the pouring rain! We have had so many compliments from our guests – one of our carvers managed four helpings of the beef wellington which probably says it all. Please do pass on our thanks to Marek, Beverley, Tony and all of your team. They were absolutely fantastic.

Piera and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing such an excellent wedding breakfast and catering service at our wedding on Saturday. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it, and how impressed they were with the friendly, efficient, and professional attitude of your staff. A real credit to you.
We will certainly recommend you in the future for such occasions and thanks to both you and your staff once again.

Thank you for coming back to do David’s 80th birthday party. As usual it was absolutely wonderful and it is a pleasure to do business with you.
Mrs Sarah Waterhouse
Nigel has asked me to write and thank you for your excellent contribution to the success of Saturday evening. From start to finish everything went well with excellent food served by your most friendly and efficient waitresses. In fact the whole evening was a blast from the beginning to the end.
I know the Princes William and Harry enjoyed both the shoot and the shoot dinner you so kindly served. Prince William was also grateful to you for looking after his dog.

Many thanks for the splendid meal and canapes at Millie and Tom’s wedding. Everything went well from our point of view and there were lots of very nice comments regarding the food and your highly efficient staff.
Now back in France and once again many thanks for such a smoothly run day.

I first experienced Sarah Kirk’s catering at a wedding I attended a couple of years ago. It was enough to make me feel determined that if I ever had to organise a similar function, I would endeavour to make sure that she and her company were involved. Not only is Sarah a superb and experienced chef she also made sure that all of her staff are very well trained. She paid particular attention on the day to the small details and as she was paying attention, then I, as her client, did not have to bother and she made my job as Mother of the Bride much easier. Her whole approach to our special day was very professional and she has high expectations and standards. She contributed spectacularly to the smooth running of my daughter’s wedding as she is so experienced. Her well trained staff worked so unobtrusively and superbly throughout the day. My daughter said that the whole thing has been magical and was most impressed by the butter on the tables being carved into the shape of swans.

I have been asked to provide a reference for Sarah Kirk, which I am delighted to do in a number of capacities:-
Firstly personally, Sarah has provided a catering service for many functions ranging from our daughters’ 18th birthday, 21st birthdays and weddings, where in each case there have been a four or five course meal served together with accompanying canapes and wines. In addition, for some years Sarah has provided lunch for 50 guests to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Minden on the 1st August. Sarah has been providing a catering service to me for at least twenty four years.
Secondly, I am happy to provide a reference for Sarah in my capacity as Chairman of my company Denny O’Hara Limited. From time to time we hold lunches in the office for ten to twelve people and Sarah provided a four-course lunch including accompanying wines.
The last capacity in which I provide this reference is as Deputy Honorary Colonel The Rifles in Yorkshire. For many years, Sarah has provided a four-course meal for forty to fifty people at our annual dinner. In addition she has provided a three-course meal for one hundred guests to celebrate the launching of The Rifles.
Therefore, on many occasions, in various locations, Sarah’s abilities have been put to the test and in all cases over the past twenty four years, I have never been found wanting. The food and service has always been excellent. Our guests regularly comment upon the high standard of service that Sarah provides.
Sarah’s staff, many of whom have been with her for a considerable number of years, are well trained, know their job and are obviously very happy in the work they are undertaking.

We are now back from our honeymoon and adjusting ourselves to working life. Reflecting on what was an incredible day, we just wanted to express our thanks to you and your team for coping with circumstances which were not ideal. The bad weather certainly created many challenges and we think your team did an excellent job in coping with all aspects. The little details such as Marek finding us a mini selection of canapes were incredibly thoughtful and we thank you for this. Also I have to say the beef was outstanding.
Thanks for all your efforts and advice.

Thank you once again for the excellent meal you provided for our charity dinner. Your staff were quite incredible the way they coped with the change of venue only 3 days before the event.
