Martin is a regular face at Hendall and has been on our approved caterers list for over three years now. He prides himself on offering high quality food and service at a reasonable price.
When our couples come to us and are aiming to keep their overall costs as economical as possible, we are always thrilled to suggest they consider Martin to cater for their big day!
Cost effective catering doesn’t mean poor quality; far from it in fact!
Martin has over 30 years of catering experience and has worked with world renowned chef, Rick Stein, not to mention cooking for HRH Queen Elizabeth and Piers Morgan! Combined with his attention to detail and friendly, helpful staff, this makes him a popular choice for couples looking to marry at Hendall.
One of our recent couples, who married this month wrote the following to Martin saying:
“Just wanted to pop a quick email to you to say thank you ever so much for the wonderful food on Saturday 18th May.
We are very grateful for how accommodating you have been with the various dietary requirements. Normally with lactose, wheat intolerance or vegan options you get a boring token meal, but our guests were absolutely delighted with the lengths you went to. They particularly commented on their lovely dessert, which made everyone else a bit jealous!
I wanted to say another thank you to your very kind staff who were there on the day. They were so attentive and on the ball with running the day.
Thank you so much for our very full tummies!”
A fantastic testimonial, we’re sure you’ll agree.
None of Martin’s pricing is ‘set’, all quotes are provided specifically for that couple’s varying wants, needs and budget.
Sometimes our couples, don’t particularly know what they want to eat, but know how much they wish (or have!) to spend on the catering for their event. In this instance, Martin is able to advise clients what he could cater for their budget. This can be hugely helpful for those clients, and they are often delighted to learn that they can get more included than what they were expecting to!
As with all our caterers, Martin is be responsible for hiring in all of the crockery, glassware, cutlery, highchairs, staffing, for each event he caterers for. So, despite Hendall being a dry hire venue, he has delivered everything he needs and his team are responsible for setting this all up on the day and running all aspects relating to catering throughout each event here.
We very much enjoy working with Martin and his lovely team and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to you for any kind of event you’re looking to host.
