Here is what Hayley and Sam said about our service:

“We booked Thomas the Caterer after meeting their head chef Allister at an open event and by our tipi, venue and nearly everyone in Leicester reccomending them. We had really firm ideas of what we wanted for the day for our canapes, starters and evening food and Thomas was really accomodating in helping us to put our ideas on the plate and making sure he delivered first class food but in the way we had imagined. We had a tipi wedding and wanted a relaxed and rustic look to menu but with really high quality food. He came up with a fantastic main course for us when we had no idea what to choose and was always on the end of the phone should we have any queries.  We always felt like we were super important to Thomas and the team even though they must have had several weddings on around the same time. On the day the team were brilliant, and so many poeple have commented on how good the food and staff were on the day. I got to relax and enjoy the day and food without ever having once worry about the catering. Great job, Fantastic staff, yummy food!’
