“You played a large part in making our wedding day as perfect as it was and we can’t thank you enough for your contribution to that. Your level of service, both on the day and leading up to the event, was truly fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for a more supportive company to help us in organising our special day. We have to admit that neither of us ate anything during the reception due to a multitude of other things going on, but we have heard nothing but glowing reports from our guests about the quality of the food provided. We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for an outside caterer in the area and we have no doubt that we will work with you again in the future; we look forward to it!”
Richard and Nicola (Mr & Mrs Cherry)


“Can I take this opportunity to put into writing how thrilled we were with your catering?

From the first time we met, we were very impressed by the professionalism and helpfulness. Nothing was too much trouble. It has typified our experience with all of you at the company that it wasn’t just a business venture, you were all genuinely concerned that we should have a silver wedding celebration that we could relax and enjoy. That is such a refreshing approach.

On the day, the food was gorgeous, immaculately presented by plenty of attentive, unobtrusive staff. Your organisation was excellent and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Also was really impressed by how you left our venue spotless at the end.

We really appreciate all your help and care in giving us and our 100 guests a wonderful day.
John and Sarah Marshall

I have used Sussex Chef now for a number of catering events for the Deacons of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. They have always provided a friendly and reliable service and ample supplies of food to a high standard.

“We are very happy to recommend Sussex Chef, who provided a very professional and excellent buffet for a recent family funeral wake. The quality of the food was truly excellent and the staff were very efficient and sensitive to the occasion.”
Richard Pool

We had a brilliant experience with Sussex Chef who catered our wedding on 18/6/16. From the first time they got in touch until the final email they were friendly, hard-working and utterly committed to making our wedding the most brilliant and stress-free it could possibly be. The food was delicious – many of the guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. It was well-presented and they very thoughtfully took our array of dietary requirements (including a gluten free bride!) on board. They were always on time, professional and friendly. We also loved having a family firm doing our wedding catering as it made it more personal. I would totally recommend them!
Sophie & Stephen

“We chose Sussex Chef to provide catering for family and friends for our wedding weekend.

The food and the staff were excellent and played a big part in making our celebration a success. We had fine dining on the Friday, the menu choices varied and the food was delicious.

We had a hot and cold buffet on the Sunday and again the menu choices meant we were spoilt for choice. The food provided for the special diets was just as special and was the soup they made on request for one of the guests.

Nothing was too much trouble, even taking a photograph of us all to mark the event.

I would use them again (and again) and wished they were near us at home in Yorkshire.”
Celia Fermin


“Everyone commented on how varied the menu was and how delicious it all tasted, there really was something for everyone. It not only tasted delicious but looked beautiful too. We really appreciated your friendly approach and professionalism, it gave us a lot of confidence, especially having to organise everything from a distance, and on the day it all went like clockwork! Mum is still on a high over a week later! It was so wonderful not having to spend the day in the kitchen but being able to enjoy the party with everyone. You all worked really hard behind the scene I know but from our perspective it looked effortless. Thank you so much for helping us to create such a magical and memorable day.”

“Sussex Chef provided the catering for our Golden Wedding lunch in June 2012. It had recently acquired the business of Standean Caterers whom we had used for 25 years. There was nothing but praise for the quality of the food, prepared from a menu chosen by us. In particular the cold roast beef was cooked to perfection – few of us had eaten rare beef of such quality. The staff were pleasant, helpful and professional and provided a first class service. Some of those present subsequently asked for details and we had no hesitation in passing them on and will continue to do so. We hope that we will have the opportunity to use Sussex Chef again. We hope that your business continues to develop and grow.”
Ivor O’Mahony

“We have worked with Sussex Chef on a number of events over the past four years. Ben and Clare and the team have always been reliable and their food is delicious. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for event catering”
Jo McKinney-Green | Acting Operations Manager | STEM Sussex

Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent food and service we received today everyone was very impressed and we are so grateful to you for helping make a difficult day for us go smoothly

Once again please pass on our thanks, sadly we live in Bedfordshire so are unlikely to be able to use your services ourselves but we did tell all how pleased we were.”
Mark Andrew

“I didn’t get to see you before you left to extend an enormous thanks. You and your team completely surpassed all our expectations. All the food you served, from the exquisite canapés to the delicious roast beef and salmon and the terrific, easy breakfast the next day, all of it was first rate – beautifully presented and perfect on the palate. However, it was the extraordinary professionalism in the way you ran your charming, dedicated team, that made it possible for us, as hosts, to relax completely. From the outset it was clear that no guest would go thirsty or hungry with you in charge. Every member of your team was courteous and attentive throughout a very long night. As the written thank yous start to come in, they’re confirming the verbal appreciation that preceded them, with countless guests saying what fantastic caterers we had! Henryk and I really cannot thank you both enough. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. In the meantime, I shall be passing out your details.”
Remy Blumenfeld

“Just a quick note to say that you did a great job in making our 50th Wedding Anniversary such a successful occasion. Our family and friends all enjoyed your lovely food and smooth organisation which helped us to have a memorable day.”
Ian and Lynne Spooner

“I booked Sussex Chef on recommendation from a friend as I wanted something special by way of catering for a special occasion. I could not have been more delighted with the result. I found Ben and Clare helpful, flexible and easy to deal with in advance of the day. The food on the day was ample and of excellent quality and exactly what we wanted. So many of the guests commented on the excellence of the food. The staff were friendly and helpful too. I would happily recommend Sussex Chef with confidence to anyone.”

“As the project manager and Course Commander for a demanding 14 week residential Firefighter Recruit Course I was struggling to find a catering service to meet our needs. The course is physically and mentally demanding and our recruits need a high standard of nutrition and menu variation to ensure they are up to the task. We also required the meals to be prepared on site and delivered on time, every time.

Fortunately, Sussex Chef put forward a business case to us and were accepted on the basis of food quality and choice, value for money, business organisation, professionalism and flexibility. I am delighted to say that Sussex Chef have exceeded our expectations on every level. The food quality is consistently excellent, the recruits are very well fed and the staff are flexible enough to deal with our demanding schedule.

Sussex Chef always seem able to go the extra mile for their customers and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
Keith Parvin – West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service

“Organising a funeral is a difficult task but from my first contact with Ben and Clare from Sussex Chef I felt reassured that they understood what I wanted and hand it all in hand. We were working to a tight deadline and with fluctuating numbers but nothing was too much trouble.

On the day their service was calm, efficient and unobtrusive, even when we arrived 20 minutes early, they were ready to swing into action straight away. The food they served was delicious and plentiful. We received many compliments on the food, As guests were leaving Ben and Clare provided lovely boxes for people to fill with the remaining goodies to enjoy at home. Thank you for your contribution to my father’s funeral will not be forgotten and I will certainly recommend you to friends and family.”
