Caterer Testimonials

Some feedback from our wonderful customers

“I am writing to express my sincere thanks for the excellent service provided by Concerto Catering on Saturday afternoon. Ollie and Alexandra did a wonderful job and the whole event was a great success.

The food was fresh and very delicious and presented with great style. The buffet looked amazing and our guests loved the little chalk boards explaining all the different choices. The fish platter was a picture and the lemon meringue pies and chocolate profiteroles were particularly popular!

Ollie and Alexanra could not have been more helpful and obliging. We were so impressed by the efficient way they worked together enabling us to relax and concentrate on our guests. Please pass on our thanks to them.

It has been a pleasure to use your company.  You provide a first class service and are to be congratulated.”

“Thank you so much Concerto for the wonderful catering at my son’s hangover brunch after his wedding. The paella was delicious and all the staff were brilliant also serving the drinks including the endless Bloody Mary’s. It was an outdoor event in the garden and worked perfectly. Highly recommend.”

Hannah F

“Thank you, Fiona and team, for catering for Mum’s funeral in March. There were endless comments about the truly delicious food – with beautiful, carefully isolated, nut, gluten and dairy free options – and the friendly and generous service, designed so no one had to queue and everyone was swiftly served. Communication was excellent, with professional and friendly advice and consultation. Above all I valued the sympathetic sensitivity with which the occasion was handled. From beginning to end, we just didn’t have to give a thought to the catering; Fiona and her team freed us to think about Mum and to talk to family and friends. That’s a very special skill, a testament to Fiona’s experience, professionalism, and kindness. We couldn’t have had better support on a very demanding day. Thank you!”
Madeleine X

“We would just like to say a huge “Thank you” for the wonderful food you served up for Francesca & Tyler’s wedding celebration. We had lots of guests say how delicious it all was!
Your professional and friendly service on the day was truly exemplary. You made the day appear to flow effortlessly, allowing us to enjoy the party without any worries. We both had a fantastic time, much of which was down to how you skilfully managed it.
We shall certainly look to you in the future for any event requiring catering.”
Judith and Graeme

“Fiona and her team catered for our wedding on 21st August 21. They were professional, friendly and the food was stunning – from the canapes, to the BBQ to the evening food. From our first meeting with Fiona and Paul, we knew we could trust them with everything. The reception was held at my parents home and they took care of everything we wanted them to and more meaning the whole family could relax and not have to spend anytime in the kitchen. We will be using Fiona again for any future events we need catering and we highly recommend them. They are so much more than caterers and completely exceeded our expectations! They helped make our wedding day such a special one and we can’t thank them enough!”
Eloise Fletcher

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic catering yesterday for our daughter’s naming day. Your team were punctual, professional and incredibly helpful. They had a much better idea than me about how things could be set up and everything went really well. We really couldn’t have asked for more!

The food was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. Pretty much every guest raved about the food and my mum has already declared that we will be booking you for all future family gatherings. Thank you!”

“Just wanted to say a very big thank you for the care and attention when catering for our parties. Both do’s went without any hitches and you left my kitchen as you found it. We barely knew you were there! The food was amazing. People are still raving about your Paella – including a friend that lived in Spain for 25 years!”
Lynne & Curtis

“Wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for providing such delicious food at my party last Sunday. Had such great comments and everyone mentioned how much they enjoyed the food. It was a lovely occasion and the very professional service you all provided was very much appreciated.”
Carole Turner

“Fiona, Paul and their team catered for our recent 25th Anniversary. We had a sit down meal in the afternoon and a buffet in the evening. As someone who usually does their own catering we had never used an outside company before, so we were a bit apprehensive. From the first consultation with Fiona at her home we were certain that this was the one we were going to use.”

“Fiona listened to what we wanted, offered suggestions and really made us feel at ease, she answered any questions we had (and there were a few) and after just one visit all worries disappeared. Immediately we saw that Fiona was confident, knew exactly what she was doing and we just knew that we could rely on her. The same evening after our consultation we received a clear concise menu option list and the cost. Despite this, Fiona was never pushy and did not rush us.”

“We met again, along with Paul to discuss our menu choices and number of guests etc and we left extremely confident that a great service would be provided.
What can we say; Fiona, Paul and their team were fantastic. They all worked so hard and provided amazing food, and generous portions. All our guests said how delicious everything was, and a very fussy brother in law went up for seconds. The buffet in the evening was beautifully laid out (so beautiful it was a shame to eat it) and again, tasted lovely.”

“They worked so hard, quietly getting on with what they had to do, but, being friendly and approachable. They were polite and cheerful. Guests commented on how smart they were and that it was nice to see them smiling all day. They cleared everything away and left the kitchen spotless.”

“We are so grateful to Fiona and Paul for making our day extra special, they are such a lovely couple, passionate about what they do and eager to deliver a top quality service from start to finish. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family and if we ever have the opportunity to have caterers again, Fiona will be on speed dial. We will be visiting the Pantry (along with very eager family and friends) to have more of Fiona’s lovely homemade food.”

“I booked Fiona for my 60th birthday party last Saturday and chose the Cold Summer Fork menu. It was absolutely gorgeous! The fish selection, choice of meats and salads all went together beautifully. The portions were very generous too! The presentation was perfect, and I would not hesitate to call on Fiona or recommend her to others. A huge thank you!”
Stephanie Currie

“I love it here, best thing for me about moving to the Village, great coffee, great staff and the Welsh rarebit is to die for.”
Jakki Hesse

“Had an absolutely fab BBQ for my wedding thanks Fiona and co and no washing up!”
Janet Bentley

“Fiona’s Pantry catered afternoon tea for 60 for our celebration this weekend and it was fantastic. All the food was fresh, there was a huge selection of sandwich fillings and the cakes were delicious. They also provided some gluten free options which I’m told were yummy and the 2 ladies that came to serve the tea made sure everybody was happy and saved us the usual set up and clear down hassle that parties bring! I would highly recommend and will definitely be using Fiona’s again. Thank you so much for making our party extra special!”
Vanessa Tarr

“Had the loveliest time today in Fiona’s with my granddaughter who wanted a cake – would thoroughly recommend gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate cake which was amazing!! Thanks to Jack and Sue for their fab recommendation.”
Katya Sheath

“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.”
Tarinee Wong

“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.”
Lesley Clay

“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!”

“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!”
Jane and Colin

“So thank you, thank you, thank you for everything! You helped make our day the best of our lives and one we will never forget!”

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a phenomenal meal yesterday. You were a pleasure to have in the house at our party and we all absolutely loved the food. I’m sure we’ll be in touch again!”

Nick and Debs

“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 PearsonM

“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

“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 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.”
Jimmy St John

“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.”
