Our Testimonials

Don't just take our word for it

Hi Alison

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the whole team for catering our wedding breakfast at Styal Lodge on 14th October. The food was spectacular and so many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding food they had ever had! Our gluten free guests all really appreciated the care that went into catering for them and that it didn’t feel like they were missing out at all.

Do let us know if there’s somewhere we can leave a positive review

Thank you

Lauren & Scott

Hi Alison,

I just wanted to say thank you for doing our catering for our wedding on Saturday, I couldn’t recommend Olive Tree enough from start to finish you’ve just been amazing and so easy to deal with, the food was something else and guests were saying it’s the best soup they have ever had! The staff were great too, and working in that heat, hats off to you! The canapés also went down a treat! Overall just so happy we had yourselves catering our special day and I will recommend you to anyone and will use yourselves again for sure!

Can’t thank you enough!

Love the Grimshaw’s 😊x

Hi Alison,

Now that the dust has settled and we’re back to normal life properly after the wedding. We just wanted to send an email to thank you for all of the hard work that went into making our wedding  at The Oak Tree of Peover on 12th August 2023 perfect.

From the beginning the food was something very important to us and we wanted it to be something special. You guys delivered on that and then some! From the beginning of the process you really helped us figure out how to make something cool happen within our budget. We are so grateful for that. All of the staff that attended on the day were so friendly and made the day flow so smoothly.

We had the best feedback from our guests on the day. Everyone said the food was the best food they’d had at a wedding, everyone was catered for and well fed. We’re so grateful to you for helping make our wedding feel so relaxed.

I was also wondering if it was possible to get copies of any of the recipes used for the tapas on the day? We’d love to be able to recreate bits from our wedding to help relive it when we get the pictures & on our anniversaries.

Thank you again for everything.

Kind regards,


Hi Alison,

I hope you’re well.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to email, it’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks ❤️

I just want to say thank you for absolutely everything on our wedding day – it was perfect from start to finish. I can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve had on the food – a number of guests telling us it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had.

You were an absolute dream to work with from start to finish, I cannot thank you and your team enough. Also sorry again for completely messing up the menus, I’m sure you did not need that mild heart attack on the day 🫠.

Please pass our thanks onto all the gorgeous waiting on staff and incredible talented chefs.

Wishing you all a very successful year, although I’m sure that won’t be a problem.

All our love, Olivia & Andrew X

Hi Alison

I just wanted to thank you so much for yesterday. You and your team were brilliant, the food came out swiftly and plates cleared away without people even noticing. I appreciated you checking in on me to see if everything was ok regularly, you really made things run smoothly.

As for the food it was amazing! Everyone I spoke to agreed and several people said it was the best food they’d had at a wedding ever! I’m so glad we chose you to do our catering and the tapas dishes. It was perfect and created exactly the right atmosphere we wanted.

Thanks Beth x

Hi John and Alison

Thank you so much for the catering on Saturday everyone absolutely loved it and has commented on how nice it was. I’m sure you may have heard that our wedding dressers never turned up and honestly me and Leah where truly heartbroken by it and still are really, You were willing to help any way you  could and it was really appreciated.

I wish I had more of the food as our nerves and anxiety with the stressful morning took over a little and what I did have was as delicious as we remember. So honestly from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much you were one of the brightest points of the day.

Kind regards,

Paul & Leah


Just wanted to say a huge thanks for everything on Saturday. We got such a lot of compliments on the food and we thought the format worked really well. Will send any photos through when we get them!

Thanks again!

Molly & Ste

Hi Alison,

Thank you and your team for such delicious food. Everyone said it was the best wedding food they had and could not stop talking about it! It was better than we imagined. All of your staff were incredibly kind and accommodating. The food really helped made our day special.

Thanks again. Dan and Lucy

Hi Alison,

Just wanted to thank you and the team for our wedding on Friday at Styal Lodge.

The feedback from our friends and family has been amazing on the service and timings, and the arancini balls were ‘the best thing I have eaten (numerous people told us this!).  We were too busy on the night to say thank you to the lady out front (totally forgot her name, sorry!), but please could you tell her she was fantastic.

Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and New Year.

Katie and Lawrence

Hi John and the team,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for catering our wedding last Saturday. We are still being told how incredible the food was over a week later by our guests and we thoroughly enjoyed it as well. I was wondering if I could ask what the recipe was for the Eton Mess? It was so different to just whipped cream and I’m still trying to work out what you used instead of just the standard cream/strawberry mix.

We also wanted to say thank you for the ease with which you re-organised the date, several times, which really helped us when trying to rebook the wedding. Lastly during the day, thank you for sorting everything out and being attentive to us. It really the stress off us massively

Thanks again

Dan & Heather

Sorry this has taken a bit longer to send we have been a bit busy.

But we just wanted to say the food was amazing and everyone said it was the best food that they have ever had at any wedding! And I know they’re not just saying that as most of them are quite particular.

It was amazing and so we’re all your staff and everyone else so helpful and accommodating especially Kate and the chef!! We would highly recommend you to anyone!!! please pass on our praises you all helped make the wedding day special 😊

Thanks again and all the best with everything you do.

Dear Olive tree 🌳

I just wanted to say thank you for the delicious food served on Lisa & Callum wedding on Saturday 14/8/21. From the tasting to the serving of the wedding breakfast everything was just so perfect.

Thankyou for fitting in our singing waiters and kitting them out with an Olive Tree apron.

I can honestly say all the food was fabulous especially the fish & chips best I have ever tasted.

Big thanks to Alison and all her team and chefs sorry dont know all your names.

I am sure Lisa & Callum will be thanking you when they are back from their honeymoon. 🤍

Kind regards


(Mum of bride )

Hi Alison,

We both just wanted to say thank you so much for everything during the wedding.

Everyone was absolutely raving about the food, especially the sticky toffee pudding! People were even taking pictures of it, which must be a good thing.  The pizza went down a treat as well.  We wish you had a restaurant so we could eat it again!

We had such a great day.  Thanks to yourself, John and the team for fitting us in with the new date and making it all go perfectly to plan.  Thanks also for keeping the cake stable!

All the best,

Nicola and James

Warmest regards Neil

Dear John, Alison,

I wanted to send you a note from Carl and myself to thank you for catering our wedding on Friday.

We had a fantastic day, and so did all of our guests, and the food was excellent! We had some very picky eaters attend and received so many compliments on the food! Parents were also very grateful for the children’s options – they were a huge success. The evening snacks were also very popular – I myself, coming off my bridal diet, had both chips and half a hot dog (couldn’t manage any more) 🙂

I also wanted to mention that Alison was an absolute superstar on the day – she made sure everything worked like clockwork.

Thank you once again & let me know if I can write a review somewhere,

On behalf of both of us, thank you so much for an amazing wedding breakfast and canapés.

In particular we really appreciated how you listened to our requirements and did such a great job in creating a bespoke menu for us.

Just a quick email to thank you and John and the whole team at Olive Tree. Honestly so many people have commented how AMAZING the food was!! From the canapes to the full meal, and even the pizza and pasta in the evening, everything was so beautifully presented and well served. 
I don’t have the words to thank you, all your hard work in the lead up to the event, helping us select the menu, and everything you did on the day.
We are so overwhelmed and can’t thank you enough. Hope you enjoyed the lion dance too 

Thank you a million times

We just wanted to send you and the whole team a massive THANK YOU! We had the most amazing day and you played such a massive part in it. We appreciate your help in setting up the room, it looked amazing.

We’ve only heard compliments about the food, it was delicious. Thanks for looking after us all day, it was awesome service. Also, thanks for being so flexible around timings and fitting yourselves around all the delays.

Loved every little bit of the Olive Tree Service

Thanks Again
Andy & Jen

The food and service Olive Tree provided at our wedding yesterday was exceptional. The canapes and wedding breakfast were delicious and presented beautifully. The portions were generous and we’ve had loads of positive comments from our guests. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They made sure everything ran smoothly and looked good. We’re sure they were all wilting in the heat but they kept smiling which we appreciated. John made the planning super easy and accommodated our number changes and different dietary requirements without a fuss.We can’t recommend them enough

Mr and Mrs Kane

Olive Catering provided the food for our wedding reception at Combermere Abbey and quite simply they were fantastic – not only the food they provided but also the exceptional level of service, which many of our guests also commented on. Special thank you to the front of house staff, who were amazing, and again many of our guests commented just how fantastic they were. In addition, thank you to John who helped us put together the menu and was always available to support us through the process. Superb.

Mr and Mrs Barr

‘The most amazing wedding food’ this is what we have been hearing from all our guests! The dauphinoise were divine but the fish and chip bar stole the show!
Te whole team were fantastic and so easy to work with, fully trusted them with our wedding day-thank you!

Mr and Mrs Mcgeever

Dear John

The dust has settled after what was an amazing day last Friday at the Oak Tree and we just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff at Olive Tree who played a part in our perfect day! We did not get everyone’s names however Lorraine was fantastic and very attentive to us to ensure we had everything we needed, including a plate of antipasti and cheese when we were busy doing the rounds seeing friends and family and probably would have forgotten to eat!

The waiting staff were all both lovely and professional and coped well with the fact that we were playing musical chairs and moving around the room for different courses!

The food was exceptional and all our guests commented that it was amazing. So many thanks once again to John and all his colleagues in the kitchen.

And lastly thank you to you for your patience in answering all our queries and questions and organising everything for the big day.

We will certainly recommend you in the future.

Kind regards,

Gail & Heather
Simpson – Scott

Hi John
I just wanted to say a massive thank you!!
The service your company offered was fantastic!!!
The food was amazing and everyone kept commenting all day on how good it was.
Even the little things like the staff saved myself and Liam some canapés as we were having photos and then later on saved us some pizza to take back to our room as we were so busy mingling with people when the food came out.
Also a MASSIVE thank you to the rest of the team who went above and beyond what was expected, she was the first calm face I saw when getting out of the car that morning before the ceremony she told me ‘it’s ok to take a minute, it’s your day’
She then helped arrange my dress when walking down the aisle and honestly thought that was so lovely!! Please can you pass on a massive thank you x

Thank you very much!!

Mr & Mrs Kefford

Myself and Ryan would just like to thank everyone at Olive Tree Catering for being so amazing on our wedding day at Thornton Manor. The food was absolutely amazing and there was not one guest during our day that had a bad word to say about any element to do with the quality of food. We would like to thank the team for help during the lead up to our wedding day and taking care of us throughout the day making sure we was okay. You’re all amazing!! We cannot recommend anyone enough to have you cater for them, it was food perfection. Thank you for being apart of our day The Gilbody’s xx

We got married in 8th September at the oak tree of Peover. Olive tree were AMAZING! The food was delicious and many guests were heard to say it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding. In fact my sister is still going on about the main course.
In the run up to the day they were great. They provided us with a memorable tasting and we even left with a whole key lime pie. The food on the day was as good as the tasting, which is rare. They respond promptly to queries, and their prices are very reasonable.
On the day itself they surpassed themselves. The Event Manager was wonderful and so attentive, and the service ran very smoothly. Even your waiting staff are an asset to you. When I was 16 I worked as a waitress catering weddings, and I know how stressful it can be. They were all polite, smiley and professional and should be congratulated for their hard work.

Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect!

Elizabeth Little

We got married at The Oak Tree of Peover from start to finish John and the team where amazing! They did exactly what we wanted and took on our ideas. We absolutely loved our food we as did all our guests, we still have endless comments about how enjoyable it was now. We had the Tapas for the sit down meal and a wrap bar for our evening guests and I cannot fault anything at all. So thank you again to you all and all the luck in the future. Kayleigh and George xx

Hi John

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for our wedding yesterday at Thornton Manor. Pretty much everyone has said how lovely the food was and someone’s even said to me that it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding! We were so impressed with it and really happy we picked you for the catering. Everything was perfect.

Thank you very much

Hi John

I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for everything you did for us on our wedding day. I really couldn’t recommend you and the team enough.

Olive Tree went above and beyond to make sure our day was as amazing as we imagined. The quality of the food and service on the day was second to none and many of our guests since our wedding have commented on the same. The variety of the menus on offer and the communication up to and on the day of the wedding was brilliant and I couldn’t fault anything at all. Olive Tree hugely deserve this award and recognition as one of the leading catering suppliers in the industry.

The whole team were so accessible from day one – they met with us as many times as we needed to, answering emails and text messages to ensure they understood what we wanted. However they were also great on advising what would work better on the day to ensure the smooth flow of everything. They really helped bring my vision to life and I can’t thank them enough for everything they did

I hope you’re well and if I can do anything else please let me know.

Laura & Steve Luckett xx

Hi Olive Tree
You guys were so amazing, thank you for everything!
The food was delicious on the day just as it was at the tasting and all our guests loved it! Thank you! I have to thank you personally for being so lovely, easy to talk to, accommodating of my requests, and responding to all communication quickly. You were fantastic!!
Good luck with the wedding awards, I hope you get it you deserve it.
Peter and I will always be thankful to you and your team for perfecting what was our top priority- feeding our guests delicious food on our wedding day.
Thank you thank you thank you 🙂

Take care!
Best wishes,

Olive Tree Catering did an incredible job at our wedding at Thornton Manor Lakeside Marquee on the 29th July.

From start to finish the service was excellent. We chose the tapas menu and Olive Tree tailored it to exactly what we wanted with Italian themed plates. All of the guests commented on how amazing the food was, and how much choice there was even for specific dietary requirements. It was exactly how we had imagined it.

Would definitely recommend Olive Tree. The whole team were brilliant and made sure the day ran smoothly.

Thank you very much!

Hello John and the team!

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a Huge Thank You to all of your incredible team that made our Wedding Breakfast amazing, I would say every member of the wedding party commented on how amazing all the food was from the canapes through to the wedding breakfast and then evening food! It couldn’t have been any better so for that Thank you. I have forgotten the ladies name that was hosting on the day of the wedding but she was absolutely fantastic!

Hannah & James Fruen

Hello John, Danny and team!

Whilst we were lying on the beach today, we were discussing our wedding day and how amazing it all was, and I thought it best we drop you a line whilst it’s still all fresh in our minds! The level of service we received from day one of the booking process has been fantastic,  all of you have been brilliant from day one! The staff on the day, were perfect, they were such a reassurance knowing they understood how we wanted everything! The food was to die for, and we’ve had compliment after compliment – even from the fussy ones with all their requirements, they were equally as impressed with how you accommodated them!

Having close friends as event managers and chefs, the catering choice for us needed to be impressive, and you guys really did blow all of them away! We can’t thank you enough,

Thank you all so much, Mr and Mrs Parry!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the team for providing the catering at our wedding  at Combermere Abbey. We cannot express how happy we were with the food, service and professionalism throughout the entire planning process. I have lost count how many of our guests have complimented the food both during the day itself and the days following with the most common phrase being “It’s the best wedding breakfast we ever had” and “The Kebabs were absolutely amazing”.

Your event manager and the waiting on staff were equally as amazing. So professional and efficient which was great to see. Again the service that they delivered was also commented on by many of our guests. Once again Thank you all so much, I cannot recommend you enough and will certainly be singing your praises to all that will listen for some time to come!

Best wishes Nick and Leanne Cooper

Hi John,

I have been meaning to get in touch to say thank you so so much to you and all of your team, for making our wedding day so special. The food made it!! From the minute I met you I was at ease and knew that the food aspect of the day was in safe hands. Nothing to worry about. The food was exquisite; the staff on the day were just brilliant.

We were absolutely chuffed to bits. The guests were blown away with the tapas, they had ‘never had such fabulous food at a wedding!’ we had so many positive comments. Thank you so much. Happy New Year to you and all of your staff, I hope you have a good year ahead!

Laura & Matt

Hello John and the team!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to you all for an absolutely TAPTASTIC wedding on 25th July at the Oaktree at Peover.

Chris and I were blown away with how amazing the service was on the day and the food was incredible! Our guests spoke so highly of the food and said that they have never had anything like it at a wedding before. Your chocolate brownies were a hit for sure! The day was so special and Olive Tree was such a huge part of that. So, THANK YOU for being absolutely amazing! Best wishes

Many thanks again Charlotte and Chris Cockroft

Hello John

I just wanted to send an email to say thanks again for doing the food for our wedding on the 12th.

All the staff were brilliant and accommodating, so please send on my thanks to all the team who made sure everything was perfect throughout. We will definitely try and book a meal at Shared Olive when we are back home so sure we will see you soon.

Take care and best wishes,

Hi John and all the staff at Olive Tree

I just wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for everything over the wedding. The food was beautiful, each course and the evening food was superb. Every member of staff was so professional and polite and a credit to the company. We have received so many compliments on how fantastic the caterers were, how unusual the menu was and the service they received, not just on the evening but since the wedding its the first thing our guests have mentioned about the wedding. From day one when we first contacted you the service has been great. I really believe that you played a vital role in making our wedding so perfect. The staff were brilliant on the day making sure everything run smoothly. Thanks again and we wish you all the best in the future.

Elizabeth and Andrew

Hello John

Just to say thank you so much for the catering you did for us on Saturday at my daughters wedding at Abbeywood. I’m very aware that I did not have the opportunity to thank anyone on the day and to let you know that guests were very complimentary of the meal your served for us and of course the bacon and sausage barmcakes went down well.

Many thanks again

Julie Holland

John and all the team at Olive Tree,

Keiran and I would like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful food we had for our wedding day on 1st August. Throughout the whole process from when we first met late last year, through the tasting and to the big day itself, you have been so helpful and thoughtful in guiding us in selecting our food. So many of our guests were overwhelmed at how great the food was – I’m sure there were many empty plates! And many of them commented on the perfect service – they really loved all getting their food at the same time on each table! I really appreciated that you came and spoke to me at the end of the night too, to check I was happy with everything, and checked in with my mum too. We were both so pleased with how everything went. I hope you don’t mind, I have attached a couple of pictures of Keiran and myself on the day – as you can see we managed to get out for a few snaps despite the rain!

Hi John

Now we are back from our honeymoon we just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you. Our whole wedding day was amazing and the food was out of this world,from the moment we arrived at our venue and the canapés were served we knew we had made the right choice with our caterers. The choice of canapés we were given were great something for everyone to enjoy. As for the wedding breakfast this was faultless, and many of our guests have commented that it was some of the best food they had ever had at a wedding, which we would totally agree with. The timing and execution of everything on the day was perfect and John was a credit to the team, all the waiting on staff were friendly and polite which is nice to see. The last course,the Malteaser mess was out of this world, everyone loved it. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a top notch caterer and will hopefully see you soon in the restaurant to relive our menu. A massive thanks to John and the Olive Tree team.
