Testimonials

Eloise provided a beautiful afternoon tea for 50 of us and accommodated all of our dietary requirements. She worked tirelessly in the background, always with a smile, making sure everything was immaculate, her attention to detail was perfect. We cannot thank Eloise enough for making it a beautiful and memorable afternoon. The food was fresh, homemade, delicious and made with love and care, which was just what we wanted. We would thoroughly recommend EP caterers. Thank you Eloise.

Eloise was absolutely fantastic providing a delicious lunch for my daughter's Christening. She was really helpful with the planning - really responsive and full of excellent suggestions. And she was so brilliant on the day itself - Eloise took care of everything so we could really enjoy the day and not worry about anything. The food was delicious - we particularly enjoyed the salmon and hearty salads - and the chocolate roulade disappeared before I could blink! A huge huge thank you for all your hard work, thoughtfulness and fabulous cooking.

Eloise catered for over 40 people at our house following my mothers funeral. The quality of the food was excellent, served on vintage crockery that was provided, Eloise took care of everything. We cannot thank her enough and would highly recommend her. 

Peter and Kay Goslng 2022

 

Eloise was recommended to us by a work colleague. She met us in our local pub to discuss what we wanted for our wedding catering and suggested dishes that would suit our relaxed theme. Every step of the way Eloise was with us. She was excellent at catering for various guests with dietary requirements even at short notice.
She & her team prepared a wide variety of canapés once the service was over to go with champagne, followed by two chilli dishes (meat and vegan), tacos, guacamole, cows milk and vegan cheese.
Having found out at short notice that our wedding cake had not been made, Eloise made 70 cupcakes all adorned with hearts and there were also brownies. These were served with tea and coffee in delightful crockery. Cheese and biscuits on compostable platters were left for our guests to nibble on during the dancing.
Everything was perfect and delivered without a hitch. Eloise and the lady with her were happy and smiling throughout our wedding yet professional.
All our guests loved the food and we received many compliments throughout the evening as to the quality and deliciousness of the food.
We could not have asked for better caterers and will definitely use EP Caterers for any future events and unreservedly would recommend them.

Eloise provided afternoon tea for our 25 guests in a church hall on Saturday. The food was fresh and wonderful. The tablecloths, fresh flowers and china tableware were perfect. I cannot recommend Eloise highly enough. Thank you.

Catherine Simmons 2022

 

A wonderful gluten-free afternoon tea, will definitely be ordering again!

K Addy 2022

 

Emails are flooding in this morning. Everyone thought that the food was fantastic, it worked really well. A wonderful evening was enjoyed by all 24 of us.

M Holmes 2022

 

We’ve just demolished our lovely Valentine’s afternoon tea delivered to us by Eloise. Everything was delicious and we’d highly recommend EP caterers.

J Henman 2022

We are absolutely delighted with our recent experience of EP Caterers. From the moment I contacted Eloise about an event we were hosting, she was engaged, an excellent communicator and creative in ensuring we could provide a lunch for 150 in a cost effective yet delicious and practical way. We opted for some of her individual lunch boxes and soup pots, the quality of the food, ingredients, taste and appearance was astounding. I LOVE good food and admittedly am quite big on standards, every item in that box hit the mark, the soup was absolutely delicious and even her strawberries were shiny and lovely ! Eloise was friendly, peaceful, professional and so easy to work with. She was excellent in going the extra mile, visiting the venue beforehand so she knew where to go and set up and was a pleasure on the day. Our guests haven’t stopped raving about the lunches and we’ve already asked to use her again! Look no further than EP Caterers! 

S Lang 2022

I just wanted to say how fantastic the tea boxes were last week. We were celebrating my friend’s birthday and she was absolutely delighted that you’d managed to make her a gluten-free version (she said that the sausages were delicious) with all the trimmings as she normally doesn’t get much choice. As normal my vegetarian version was outstanding. It was the first time the other lady had had one of your teas and she again was amazed at the presentation and quality of the contents. So a massive thank you.

S Maxwell 2022

 

It is hard to follow all these amazing testimonials so I can only agree with them all wholeheartedly. I found Eloise online when looking for someone to cater for 60 of us at lunchtime following my mother’s memorial service. Many of our family and friends were travelling long distances and would therefore need a decent meal before heading home. Eloise did not disappoint! Whether savoury or sweet her finger food was simply delicious and there was plenty of it. Her use of vintage cups and saucers together with her little flower arrangements helped to brighten up the tables – so much nicer than the usual catering crockery and there is nothing quite like a cuppa in a “proper” china cup! Eloise was calm, charming and helpful from start to finish and everyone loved her food – I cannot recommend her highly enough!

M Allard 2022

Great service from Eloise for a staff lunch - fresh food and individual requirements catered for. Will definitely use EP Caterers again and have already recommended to a family member for a party

L Harwood 2021

 

Thank you so much Eloise for all your help and delicious buffet food yesterday. It made our family gathering to celebrate my 80th birthday and a belated celebration for my husband\'s 80th a lovely relaxed event. We could not have wished for more.

P Stephens 2021

Fantastic afternoon tea (again) from Eloise, a great choice of treats to eat and all really tasty...we thoroughly enjoyed it, Thankyou!

Louise E-B 2021 

We were lucky to find Eloise's details online when it finally looked like my daughter's thrice cancelled wedding would finally take place. The service we received was very friendly, extremely professional and the food was amazing! Eloise is a wonderful cook; everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I cannot recommend E.P. Caterers enough.

S Buckley 2021

 

Lovely Eloise is a star. Everything she made was delicious and beautifully presented and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. Her calm and cheerful efficiency was outstanding and she succeeded in making the party a triumph. Thank you Eloise.

Grace and Anne Du Prez 2021

 

I just wanted to say, on behalf of all the family, thank you so much for the tea you laid on yesterday. The tables looked beautiful, and all the food was delicious. We had many lovely comments complimenting everything.

It was wonderful not having to worry and to just spend time with family reminiscing about mum.

E Howes 2021

 

Dear Eloise- we all want to thank you a thousand times for what you did last weekend: it was truly amazing! 

It was so nice to have your calm, reassuring, helpful advice and support all the way through from start to finish. The food was in exactly the style I’d confusedly hoped for, and exceeded all expectations. You pulled off not just one but 3 separate events: Reception canapés & drinks, a hot, posh supper with lavish choices and incredible deserts AND a cold lunch  (after a miraculous cleanup of the debris from the night before) for the hungover remainders. 

Everyone kept saying it was the most delicious - and generous- buffet food they’d ever had. The old fashioned mixed styles of China was adorable, and it was such a relief that you provided all that AND the cutlery and dishes and bits and bobs on top of everything else as I’m sure I would have got the order wrong if I’d had to hire it. Thanks too for the patient, kind,  friendly helpers who came.  We are now happily eating the gorgeous leftovers you so kindly packed up for us. 

All in all, you were absolutely brilliant and we are very, very grateful. 

Emma and Peter Jay and family 2021 

 

Wonderful afternoon tea supplied by E P caterers as a gift from the family to celebrate my 80th birthday. A selection of lovely fresh sandwiches, cakes, scones, cream etc., nicely presented and boxed delivered to the door.

Maurice Allen 2021

 

Excellent cupcakes and excellent service - thank you.

Lucy Floyd 2021

 

Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful lunchboxes you created for my nursery staff. They were very much appreciated and such great value for money. Will definitely be ordering again! Thank you

J Thorp Nursery Manager 2020

 

Wonderful afternoon tea for four delivered to our workplace. Fabulous ginger cake. Excellent value. Thoroughly recommend.

S Holliday 2020

 

Eloise is always professional and her food is fabulous - chocolate brownies are to die for!!!

P Gallie 2020

 

After losing all hope in finding a caterer for my 22nd birthday celebration in Oxfordshire, by some miracle I found EP Caterers who went above and beyond for me two nights in a row. Eloise was incredibly flexible at only one week's notice and she created a plethora of incredible canapes for 18 guests two nights in a row! She catered to all my friends dietary needs and they are still raving about her brownies to this day!
Thank you Eloise

E Cyriax 2020

 

Thank for you such an amazing afternoon tea supplied for my mum's wake, everything was fantastic and the fact that you served was an added bonus. Also washing up taken care of too, what more can you ask for! Definitely recommend and will use you again!

G Allen 2020

Lovely lady. Great service. Delicious food. Would use again.

R Budge 2020

 

Thank you so much for your work and support last Saturday evening in Yarnton.  Absolutely everything you did for us was spot on in every way.  The quality of the meal was excellent and the way in which it was presented and served was equally first class.  The contribution you made to our evening was appreciated by everyone.  (...and I for one was also incredibly grateful for the way everything was cleared and all the dirty pans and crockery taken away for washing!)

Rev Dr R Armitage 2020

 

I just wanted to say thank you again for yesterday. I've had lots of comments from those who attended yesterday on how great you both were and how tasty the food was! That chocolate cake was to die for! From a personal point of view. You were really kind and needed no direction at all on what to do, which at a stressful time for me was such a help. The food spoke for itself....amazing!

K Saint 2020

Absolutely fantastic service from Eloise from start to finish. We had a delicious afternoon tea for a baby shower. Scrummy homemade cakes and savoury options. All beautifully presented and very generous amounts. Such great value too! Thank you Eloise

A Smith 2020

Thank you so much for all of the lovely food! It was amazing!  The selection of sandwiches and cakes were unbelievable and enjoyed by all. We will certainly be recommending you and using you again!! 

M Johnston 2020

EP Caterers provided Signature Cream Teas for a picnic we had to celebrate a Hen Do. Eloise was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and replied quickly to my questions. 

The food itself was delicious. She had no problems in adjusting the order and take in different dietary requirements. I have booked Eloise to provide food for meetings and events three times now and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food or customer service. I would recommend her to anyone!

B Evershed 2020

Ep Caterers. Strongly recommended. Best evidence? Almost everyone was queueing up for seconds!  Eloise has looked after our twice-yearly Woodstock Bridge Club parties three times now and on each occasion the members have been delighted. Excellent food. Excellent service. I recommend Eloise without reservation.  

David Shepherd. 2020

Having moved to Woodstock recently, we held a pre-Christmas drinks party to meet neighbours plus invite old friends to our new home. Running around preparing food the week before Christmas and having to serve on the evening in question would have resulted in us not having the time to speak and meet with our guests, so we contacted some local caterers to get an idea of what they could offer along with costings. Eloise - whom we chose - made the whole process straight forward and professional - she took the time to establish exactly what we wanted – was only too happy to accommodate specific food requirements and provided clear reasonable pricing options. On the day - Eloise plus one other arrived with the canopies, familiarised themselves with both the entertaining space and what we wanted to offer drinks wise and once the guests had arrived ensured that no one’s glass was empty whilst serving the food. The evening was enjoyed by all concerned and we had many compliments about the quality of the canopies and those who served them. We have no hesitation in recommending Eloise as being the caterer of choice and will without doubt be using her services again whenever the need arises.

D Hennell 2019

 

EP Caterers brought a Christmas Afternoon Tea for twenty-two people to our venue. The beautifully laid tables, delicious food and excellent service made everyone smile with delight. Eloise was a pleasure to work with, it was easy to book and our special requests were delivered with no fuss at all. 

Charlotte Rowntree Cognatum Estates Upper Brook Hill. 2019

I cannot recommend EP Caterers highly enough, it's quality all the way by Eloise herself. From the minute you place your order until the end it's friendly, helpful customer service. I met Eloise through a local Networking group, placed a lunch order for 11 colleagues which was delivered promptly and with a smile! Eloise has an excellent selection of sandwiches, wraps, cakes and additional nibbles to choose from, food intolerances not a problem either, vegan, gluten-free all delicious!
Thank you EP Caterers see you next order!
R Lyburn, Casa Rose. 2019

As a family we have used EP-Caterers for many events, both family parties and business lunches, and I cannot recommend Eloise highly enough! Eloise is professional, friendly and above all produces a truly amazing spread every time. Her planning is always so thoughtful, catering for every dietary requirement and making sure that the food is exactly what we're after. The presentation and crockery is far from your standard 'buffet' and it's great value for money. Her chocolate brownies are to die for!!

H Brooks 2019

I used EP caterers recently, I was well impressed with the wonderful selection of homemade food, delicious sandwiches, cakes  etc, Eloise did everything to setting up and clearing away, it was so nice
Mrs P Rolfe 2019

EP Caterers provide a wonderful business lunch for us. They cover all tastes with a great variety of sandwiches and their delicious savoury options as well as the fruit platter or scrumptious cakes. It is a welcome addition to our corporate meetings and the chocolate cake really helps in the afternoon!! We usually have the classic business lunch option but the Deluxe option with the cheeseboard is great for those extra special meetings where you need a little bit more. I would thoroughly recommend EP Caterers for any event.

Carrie, Solid State Logic 2019

 

"We recently used EP Caterers for the funeral tea for 200 guests after a family funeral.  We booked the Traditional Afternoon Tea and the food was just perfect and plentiful with lovely fresh sandwiches, homemade cakes and scones. The tables were set up so beautifully with white tablecloths, flowers in bud vases and delightful vintage china.  All the staff kept everything running so smoothly and discretely, topping up the food table and replenishing pots of tea and coffee as required, and clearing up afterwards.  We have had so many positive comments since on how delicious the food was and it was lovely to be able to catch up with family and friends without having to worry about a thing.  We would certainly highly recommend EP Caterers for the excellent service we received at a very fair price.  Thank you so much Eloise!"

The Partridge Family 2019

 

"This is just a quick line to thank you for Saturday. It went really well and that is due in no small part to you and your catering. Everyone sang your praises afterwards, for the excellence of the home-made food - such a change from the dull, predictable, mass-produced fare one usually gets at functions - and for the calm efficiency and cheerfulness of the whole operation. Thanks to Sam also who was the soul of helpfulness and good humour throughout. I'm very glad I contacted you. I can't imagine how I could ever have found anyone better."

Mr M Spilberg 2019

 

"Eloise catered for nearly 30 family and friends for a Christening lunch in our home all at a very reasonable pricing. The meal was delicious - crudités; hot lasagne, beetroot and Camembert tart, and lemony poached salmon with several salads, and homemade rolls, followed by 3 different delicious chocolate brownies with strawberries and crème fraîche. She poured champagne, served the guests, provided crockery and left a clean tidy kitchen. All enjoyed it immensely. What more can I say? She’s a wizard and I thoroughly recommend her for your function."

Mrs J Molyneux 2018

 

Thank you SO MUCH for all you did yesterday. You were absolute superstars, the food was wonderful, and everyone commented on what a great spread you had put on. It was wonderful to be able to offer hospitality to all our guests, especially those with dietary requirements, in such a relaxed way. Thank you for all that you did to make the day run smoothly, for your unflappability and warm welcome, and for making the church look so pretty with the flowers, tablecloths and lovely china.

Rev Hopegood Jones 2018

 

"Eloise provided an excellent service for our christening party. The food was delicious, served on time and a wide range of choices were available, including vegetarian options. We were able to plan the event's catering with Eloise a few weeks before and she helped to make our party a great success with minimum fuss. We would highly recommend her without any reservations."

Mr R Joseph 2018

 

Eloise catered for a family event for afternoon tea for 40 - it was AMAZING!!! She was very organised in the planning to ensure we got what we wanted. The food was plentiful and all homemade and was commented upon by all our guests. It was also fabulous value for money - I would have paid more for such a wonderful spread and service.  The crockery is so pretty. We will definitely use Eloise again - thank you SO much for making Hannah's 18th such a memorable occasion.

Dr Gemma Gray 2018

 

We are a photography magazine and frequently hold seminars at our local offices. EP Caterers have been doing our lunches now for several months. Eloise is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for her, always supplying tasty alternatives for our clients with special dietary requirements. The lunches are very well presented and the food is always homemade and delicious. I would highly recommend EP caterers to anyone.

C Oliver - EOS Magazine 2018

‘We were all delighted with the delicious business lunch that EP Catering provided. So fresh and tasty – we will definitely use them again’.

Cannon A Daffern 2018

 

"It was such a surprise to open the door into the Hall to find two long tables set out so beautifully. I was expecting a buffet! The sandwiches were all most appetising. The sausage rolls were very wholesome. The mini quiches were a nice touch something I hadn't had before.  The scones were gorgeous whichever way you had the jam and cream! 

I had a lot of comments from the guests of how good it was and how it reminded them of mum's sit down teas! It was just the job! You were 'Spot on' Eloise! The service was polite and amiable with a smile to boot!"

Mr Richardson. 2018

Thank you so much for your efforts yesterday. There was general agreement that the food was delicious and you succeeded in serving about 100 with efficiency and friendliness - and the kitchen and conservatory are cleaner than for some time!

Mr Stuart-Clark,. 2018
