Following my beloved daughter Ellie’s marriage to Atholl amidst the historic atmosphere of Chelsea Old Church, we had the great good fortune to be greeted at Petyt Hall by a beaming Sarah and her flawless team for a feast of the most delectable canapés and warm bites, savoured by all of us who appreciate good things. Not only had Sarah provided these marvellous treats on the day, she generously had invited us to her beautiful home for a tasting. Throughout, Sarah has shown such kindness, understanding and warm enthusiasm for what is undoubtedly a major part of a wedding reception and to provide food of such high quality, served in an unending wave of courtesy, contributed to our boundless enjoyment and great appreciation on this most happy day. Our heartfelt thanks to Sarah and her team for all grace and kindness.
Sarah is a pleasure to work with. She was very flexible, gave us as many options to work with and her and her team provided a seamless service
and the canapes on offer were AMAZING! Thank you Sarah.
Sarah Symington has produced a very high standard of catering at a wide range of events over the last three years within the Tower of London. She, and her excellent team, very successfully managed two major charity fundraising events within the Tower involving some 600 guests on both occasions and which raised a total of a quarter of a million pounds.The planning and delivery of both events were of the highest professional order as was the organisation of a large wedding reception and dinner/dance on another occasion. Sarah Symington has also catered for a range of dinner parties, lunches and receptions within Queens House, Tower of London - the Constable’s private residence. Her chefs are top quality, her waiting staff are both immaculately turned out and courteous and the attention to detail in all respects before, during and after each event is first class. There is a certain flair and style which lifts Sarah Symington Catering into a very special category.
Sarah & her team were a delight to work with. I could reach them with every little query whenever I needed to and they were always friendly, courteous and very flexible to help me get my event off the ground. When the food arrived I was so surprised. I had ordered a basic three course dinner – bruschetta to start, Thai chicken noodle salad and one bite chocolate brownies. I expected everything to look a little unimpressive and boring but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Each dish was presented beautifully, featuring some gorgeous colourful flowers and even edible glitter! My event was a huge success and it really was down to the remarkable food we served our guests, they all commented on how fantastic it was and asked for contact details. Thank you Sarah and co.
Sarah Symington Catering look after us regularly here at Queens House, The Tower of London. The friendly and consistently high standards set by the lovely staff, the truly wonderful and innovative food served, and the extraordinary attention to detail, to my mind put this small company in a league of their own, and they never disappoint. Next month they are catering for my son’s wedding at the Tower - and I am absolutely convinced it will all be as brilliant and as much fun as ever!
Thank you, thank you for all your help, support and sheer professionalism on making my daughter’s wedding day last Saturday such a wonderful and happy occasion (even the sun came out to celebrate).
Sarah Symington and her fabulous team worked for us at Queens House, The Tower of London for over five years doing countless events ranging from huge charitable affairs, catering for several hundred guests at a time, three wonderful and memorable weddings, right through to more intimate lunch and dinner parties. Sarah never once managed to disappoint. Her efficiency is flawless and she is always prepared to go the extra mile ... or five! She has a wealth of contacts within the event world, so access to first rate florists, marquees, fine wines and the like is never a problem. Sarah herself is effortlessly charming, helpful, courteous and great fun to work with.Just as importantly, her team are absolutely first rate and comprise of three of the finest chefs in London, a wonderful, thoughtful, and kind team of waiting staff, many of whom have been with her for years, all headed up by a first rate and very experienced butler. Again, each and every one of them always bent over backwards to make each event, however small, a happy and successful one. And the food is always quite outstanding, as countless letters to us over the years have testified.In short, both Richard and I could not recommend Sarah Symington and her amazing team more highly. You will receive an outstanding, friendly and unique service at any event for which they are engaged, and now we are no longer at the Tower, we miss them all hugely!
Sarah Symington and her team not only created delicious food for our reception at Petyt Hall but also served over 500 eager guests in a charming and highly efficient manner. Sarah was very visible and accessible throughout and her team engaged and enthusiastic. I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah Symington Catering. A very grateful Michael CF.
Every year we are so excited to taste all the new dishes created by Sarah and every year we find it increasingly hard to cut down on the number of dishes for our annual summer party. Sarah makes life so easy for us - working with our every whim. The fantastic food and great staff mean that I always get wonderful compliments from my friends and family after the party.
Sarah has done several wonderful & delicious parties for me. Her tea parties are very imaginative, her drinks parties full of surprises and her dinners really “hit the button”. She has great staff who work with her all the time and they ensure that everyone is well looked after. If you get her to organise your event you will not be disappointed.
Having met Sarah and her team some five years ago at a 60th birthday party and then shortly after at a wedding reception we had no hesitation in asking her to quote for our daughters weddings. One country and one London and both a huge success. We could not have managed without Sarah - simply delicious food served by her excellent staff. Pre wedding meetings and tastings were so helpful and Sarah always had time for us. Weddings are stressful and SS took the S out of stress! Thank you Sarah, Kwame, Jo and all.
Sarah Symington Catering organised a large Cocktail party for us at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, she organised the whole event seamlessly and produced exceptional food and cheery and efficient staff. We were thrilled with the service we were given and thoroughly recommend them.
