Some feedback from our wonderful customers

“We just wanted to send you an email to say how fantastic everything was on Saturday! You did a truly amazing job with all the delicious food and the wonderful service from all your staff. You all ensured that everything ran smoothly and to plan and left us with nothing to worry about. We couldn’t have hoped or asked for anything more!

We have had soooo many comments about the food and the service from lots of our guests. The sticky toffee pudding and fish pie have had particularly frequent mentions I must say!! Delicious!

 

“Thank you so much for catering for our anniversary party last night. The food was immense and everyone loved it! Thanks also to your wonderful staff who helped make the party such a success. We will definitely be using you again! Thanks again.”

“Delicious cold buffet and desserts for my 50th Birthday Party. Fiona was really helpful in the planning stage and Paul was great too, coming back at midnight to collect trays etc, helping us organise take home the leftovers, with super tips like how to bring the bread rolls back to life, and when we should eat stuff by! The desserts in particular were superb, salted caramel profiteroles, apple pie, top stuff.”
David Beadle

“I was taken out for a Mother’s Day afternoon tea by my daughter and daughter in law, we had excellent service and delicious sandwiches and cake, the Gluten free cake was the best I’ve eaten. I’m sure we will be back.”

“Just to say thank-you so much for your amazing food and attentive service for our wedding reception at the Blacksmiths Arms. Everyone had nothing but praise and compliments about the food. We loved it all, think I will definitely have to buy one of those cheesecakes all for myself!! You and your team did an amazing job in which I guess wasn’t the easiest of locations. We certainly would recommend you to anyone who needs catering service. For us it was so lovely that we knew we had no worries at all on the day re the quality of what our guests were going to eat, or how well we would all be looked after. So many thanks again, and sure we will soon be into your shop to find some lovely cake!”

“Hi, Fiona
Just a short note to thank you for the splendid buffet you organised for our Golden Wedding party last Sunday. You and your excellent staff.
All played a full part in making the event as successful as it was. Happily, everybody was clearly delighted to be there and they were extremely complimentary about the food.
It exceeded our expectations.
Thank you again.”
Annette and Jim

“I didn’t get to say goodbye so I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team
for your part in making Dad’s birthday party go off so well. Everyone kept saying how fantastic the food was (you may well get some more custom given the comments!) and we loved how you just quietly got on with it without a fuss – just what we needed!!
Many thanks once again for a brilliant job and very best wishes”.

“I have eaten at Fiona’s Pantry 3-4 times a week since they opened 3 years ago, that’s nearly 500 times and I have never waited for more than 10 minutes for my food. The food is all organic, delicious and freshly made on-site. The coffee is superb. The service is excellent and the staff are great. Fiona herself is one of the loveliest people you’ll ever meet and she makes all of her food with love and passion! 10/10 from me!”
Jimmy St John

“Fiona’s is unique, we love it. A great little venue, good coffee, good food, interesting new foods, very friendly, and efficient. Moreover we have attended a number of really unique tastings, of wine, and cheese, whilst Paul and Fiona have donated the proceeds to charity. A while back Paul and Fiona catered at a party we held for around 100, it was perfect. Keston would be a lesser place without the Pantry. Every village should have one!”
Phillip Naylor

“I love good food, and only like to eat out when I know it is going to be as good, if not better than I can make at home. I had heard great things about Fiona’s, so I decided to pay them a visit. I am happy to say that not only is the cafe, spotlessly clean, the food is absolutely delicious, they have a great selection of hot and cold food, a very tempting cake and danish selection and on a sunny day a lovely decking area to sit out in, so all in all a great place to visit.”
Gail Gulvin

“I have lunch at Fiona’s pantry most days with my colleagues and family. The sandwiches are always freshly made with locally sourced produce, the coffee is great and hot food is available should you wish plus there is always Fiona’s latest culinary creation to try out! I have always found Fiona and her staff to be very friendly and efficient, even when they are flat-out, which is quite often these days with their ever-growing popularity. I love the way they are always trying new things such as their speciality cheese and wine tasting evenings and Roast dinners on a Sunday! And if you need any further convincing to give Fiona’s Pantry a go, they have just been awarded five stars for hygiene and cleanliness from the council. Well done all!”
Paul St John

“When you go to Fiona’s Pantry, you’re not just there for the incredible food, you’re there to embrace the village lifestyle. The staff are extremely welcoming and polite, and they are all clearly trained to a very high standard! I swear by the chicken, bacon and sweetcorn mayo fresh baguettes, they’re definitely worth a try! But don’t limit yourself to just that, make sure you try Fiona’s chocolate treats too! On the whole, weather you want a sit down meal, or just a quick takeaway sandwich, as you pass through the village, there’s no place other than Fiona’s Pantry, that I’d want to order from!”
Jonny Meah

“I live in Keston Village. I would give The Pantry 6 stars if I could! Fiona and her team certainly manage to attend to every detail of the food they are preparing. There are good options on the menu, both savoury and sweet, at very reasonable prices considering most of the food is organic and sourced locally, full of flavour. It has a great atmosphere, amazing service, warm, friendly and charming. They work with the local community and often do themed events and donate profits to charity. Fiona’s Pantry is an asset to the Village of Keston. It’s a great place. GO THERE!”
Caroline Jackson

“What can I say about this wonderful place, this emporium of culinary delights, suffice to say that Fiona’s is the brown sauce on my bacon sandwich, the clotted cream on my beautifully baked scones, the Marmite on my cheese on toast, Fiona is to food what Coco Chanel is to clothes, remember the famous words” Fashion is ever changing, but class endures”., Fiona’s is a CLASS APART.”
David Pearson

“I’ve been visiting Fiona’s Pantry most days since they opened in Keston a few years ago. I much prefer their coffee to the usual high street names, and Jack is an expert hand with Latte art. The staff are always friendly and the service first class. The ingredients are always fresh and the food is homemade cooking at its best. If you want a treat Fiona’s cakes look great. All in all well worth a visit.”
Mark Lippert

“Fiona’s pantry delivered a lunch for our office meeting this Monday as we decided to try someone different from our usual. The sandwiches and savouries were very varied and all delicious. The amount of food was very generous an the price very competitive, we shall be using them again and recommending them to other offices.”
Beaufort Planning

“WOW!! EVERYTHING edible is made by Fiona and it shows! FIRST class food, drinks and service. The place is welcoming, professional in dealing with customers and spotlessly clean – as proven by the star rating. If you want wholesome, fairly priced food – served with a smile then get yourself to Fiona’s Pantry Simply, the VERY best PS Pity ‘Google user’ hasn’t the guts to put their name on their review, obviously a failed competitor – ignore them & keep up the fantastic work!”
Gill Shaw

“Used to work nearby and ate at the Pantry almost every day for years – the food is superb with wonderful specials. If you fancy a treat I highly recommend the ‘Tea for two’ option!”
Matthew Blanshard

“Just what the village and local area needs. Home cooking, tasty food, friendly atmosphere and staff. Beautiful interior – very relaxing. Thoroughly recommend Fiona’s Pantry especially her home made chutneys, and pickles etc. Pop in even if you have no one to go with, as you will be made to feel welcome!”
Sue Frampton

“An absolutely beautiful shop with wonderful homemade delights!!”
Serena Reid

“Being a Keston resident myself in such a small village, it’s lovely to have such an amazing deli less than a minutes’ walk from my door. Just finished eating their Christmas turkey sandwich, have to say best lunch I’ve had in ages! Would highly recommend this deli, give it a go, you won’t regret it!”
Katie Austin

“Would highly recommend. Full of delights to get anyone of all ages a real treat. The list is endless. “
Natasha J Djuric

“Love the coffee, love the cakes, great breakfast. Just what you want from your local deli.”
Peter Wishart

“I used Fiona’s Pantry for a summer garden party, the service was excellent with real attention to detail. We had 75 guests and it was a real dream to not have to worry about anything, I could spend my time with my friends and family.”
Nathan Kelsey

“We had a garden party for 150 people. We didn’t really know where to start with the catering so we hired Fiona’s Pantry. They came up with some amazing ideas. The food was a complete success. We had a hot food buffet, with curries and pasta. We also had a stunning cheese board for dessert. The guests raved about the food for weeks after. Concerto supplied all the staff who were fabulous. We will definitely call on you again.”
Paul & Caroline Jackson

“We used this company for a corporate wine and cheese night, it was fabulous. Not only did they bring along a huge selection of unusual cheeses but also some unusual accompaniments (including chocolate). The staff were very knowledgeable regarding the cheese and wine and were able to give great advice regarding what wine went with what cheese, and even the order to try the different cheeses. We would happily recommend them.”
Kirstie Edmondson

“Having used Fiona’s Pantry at our daughters wedding I can pat myself on the back. The food was ‘out of this world’ Cooked to perfection, even passing the “fussy brother in law” test, I cannot recommend Fiona’s Pantry highly enough. The ‘piece du resistance’ was the Hawaiian fruit stall surrounding an enormous chocolate fountain There were NO restrictions as to the amount you could eat either, the food and chocolate, just kept flowing!! As I said, I cannot recommend Fiona’s Pantry highly enough!!!”
Gill Shaw

“The food that Fiona delivers is gorgeous and well presented. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fiona’s Pantry. Fiona is always on time and if she was running late would apologise profusely. Always the perfect professional.”
Frances Robinson

“I’ve worked alongside this catering company before, when DJing for events, from parties to corporate events. The smiles on everyone’s faces when they’re tasting the food, or speaking to the servers does justice to the quality of Fiona’s Pantry!”
Jonny Meah

“I used Fiona’s Pantry for a 100 guest party not so long ago. They helped me with menu suggestions, decorations on the tables, staffed the bar, and served great food, all made by them; it could not have been better! The food was great, the staff were great, it all worked.”
Phillip Naylor

“I have used Fiona’s Pantry 4 times (parties/birthday’s etc.) and they are excellent. They always provide freshly made, organic food and offer a very reliable service. Thoroughly recommend them for any event that requires caterers.”
