What a wonderful wedding for Ella and James – despite the rain which began just as we were serving starters!  Luckily we are a rescourceful bunch, so lots of brollies were utilised to ensure the food was presented perfectly.

Such a lovely bunch of guests who were intent on having a good time and they did.  So many compliments on the meal and our smiling staff.

We love what we do!


“Dear Peter, Lynne and Team,

I just wanted to say a great big THANK YOU on behalf of the entire DAC for a terrific event.  It was so fantastic and I do not know how you do it, but each year is even better than the last.

I will let you know the date for next year asap!

Cathy Roberts

Head of DAC, Pastoral & Closed Churches


We are so looking forward to catering an evening dinner on Friday 16th June in the marquee at the #Bishop’s Palace, Winchester.  This is the 3rd year that we have been asked which is wonderful!


“I would just like to say thank you very much to you and your team for making such a large contribution to making my party such a great success.  There were many comments about how good the food was and friendly and efficient your team were.  It was a real treat to be able to just leave the food and drink in such capable hands”.  JF


What lovely comments from this client – and he and his fiance loved us so much that they have asked us to cater their wedding!  Perfect clients…



We have had the most fantastic Summer with wonderful Weddings, amazing Anniversaries, creative Corporate Canapes events, brilliant Birthdays…ok, enough alliteration now!

When we were sitting down with our brilliant Copywriter, Steve Till of HGR Marketing and talking about a “strap line” for our company he came up with “For all events and eventualities”…well, he was right.  We have catered for so many different events this year, most of them planned in advance and some last minute – sadly,  funerals have to be organised quickly and when people are at their very lowest point.  So thank you, all of our lovely clients who have worked with us this Summer and here’s to everyone we are working with going through to the end of the year, including the wonderful canape & champagne reception at Winchester Cathedral on New Year’s Eve and also Hambledon Vineyard with their Christmas events.

For all new potential clients reading this – do call us if you want to chat through catering for your event.  We work with you to ensure that the food is what you want, not what’s on the menu!


We’re taking a well earned break with a cuppa and piece of home made Lemon Drizzle cake…the team are cooking up a storm in the kitchen with hot buffet food, including Chicken Tagine with aromatic Couscous & Flatbreads and roasted Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta Bake for a surprise birthday party this evening.  We love helping people make memories for those they love.


We are busy in the kitchens creating some new and tasty canapes for our discerning clients – some who we know and those who we don’t yet know…


Simon & Jess held their fabulous wedding in the field behind their parent’s house in Whitchurch on a perfect August day, with a Teepee, Vintage Caravan and Horse & Carriage: absolutely gorgeous!  They sent us a card with the following comments:

“Dear Peter, Lynne and Team, Thank you so much for doing the catering at our wedding, the food and service was amazing!  You were a pleasure to work with and we really appreciated how flexible you were to accommodate exactly what we wanted.  We really felt listened to…we will certainly recommend Tall Hats Catering to our friends!”

Dearest Lynne
I am sure that Laura and Lawrence will give you the official thank you as the hosts of the event and your clients.
In the meantime Wendy and I would just like to extend our enormous thanks and gratitude to you and your team.  It is now the morning after the day before and our feelings of joy have not subsided. You really were such a part of the day and in particular you and the team made it such a success. Our memories of the day will linger, some may fade a little but one thing that we will always be grateful for is that we, as parents of Laura, did not have to worry about the catering at any point. You did what was asked of you and much more and we would not hesitate in recommending you as the event planner of choice.  You have become a bit of a legend in the Hughes household
Warmest regards
Wendy and Adrian

Dear Lynne,

Many, many thanks for your fabulous catering and bar services on Saturday.  Not only was the food delicious (as many people commented), and the bar services more than efficient, but you and your team delivered so much more by way of thoughtfulness & kindness – the way you looked after flowers & gifts for me & gently “advised” when necessary, was truly outstanding.

You really helped me feel so relaxed so that I could truly enjoy my party.

Please pass on our grateful thanks to the wonderfully talented Peter in the kitchen, Stuart (what a great “people person” he is!) and Beth, so lovely, professional and mature for her age.  What a team!

Please do let me know if you ever need a reference (although I’m certain that will never be required).

Many, many thanks

Anna and Family
