Testimonials

Well what can we say.  Thank you to you and your whole team for the delicious food and amazing service we received at our vows on Sunday.  Everyone commented on the food and service and how good they both were.  From the first point of contact up until the day everyone we have come in contact with at F&F have been so lovely and professional.  It certainly puts your mind at ease when arranging an event like this.

Rob worked especially hard and looked after everyone – so thank you for that.

To the amazing team at Field & Fork; a HUGE thank you to you all for everything you did to make our wedding as fabulous as it was.  Thank you for ensuring everything ran smoothly and for the outstanding service you provided.  So many guests commented on the amazing food and friendly service, not to mention the awesome Cosmos you made up for our welcome drinks!  It truly was a perfect day and we could not have wished for me.

THANK YOU!!

With love from Harriet and Daniel Conrad

After visiting their fair we chose Southend Barns as the venue for the reception celebrating the wedding of my daughter which took place on the 13th May 2017.  I cannot compliment the team at Southend Barns enough.  The arrangements were expertly marshalled and the food from Field and Fork was excellent. All of the staff were pleasant and efficient, but in particular I would like to thank Rob from Field and Fork who managed the proceedings most effectively.

Joanne & Gavin Cockburn – 13th May 2017

We just wanted to drop you a quick line before heading on our honeymoon today!
Thank you so much for the last year! From the day we met you, you have been so efficient and nothing was ever too much. I know there were a lot of staff that we were unable to personally meet so please pass on our thanks. The food was outstanding and it went down so well with our guests.  You have all been truly amazing and we can’t thank you enough! We had the best day and couldn’t have asked for anymore from any of you.

Anna and Callum Forbes – 16th April 2017

Thank you so much for helping us to have the most incredible wedding day.  The food was amazing and we had so many positive comments from our guests.  The whole day ran so smoothly and we didn’t need to think about anything but enjoying our special day – for that we are both so very grateful.  The professionalism of your whole team is a credit to you.

Thank you!

Michelle and Peter Cleveland – 29th December 2016

Apologies for such a belated email, but we have just returned from our honeymoon. We are truly lost for words, but you are first on our list to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for everything that you did to make our wedding day one of the best days of our life.

Jacqui / Bernadette – Thank you so much for your assistance in the lead up to the wedding – and your patience with the many questions we had along the way. Nothing felt like it was too much trouble, which took so much stress out of the preparations.

Janet / Rob – You were absolutely phenomenal on the day! You ran the show seamlessly and made us feel 100% at ease with all the timings and arrangements – we felt very spoilt with all our bubbly top-ups during the photos, and the sneaky plate of canapes & cheese at the end of the night!

You really do have a phenomenal team at Field & Fork. We work with lots of caterers at The Old Vic, and we have to say that your team were exceptional. Our guests commented that the canapes and dinner were exceptional and were overwhelmed with such generous portions and the attentiveness and politeness of the staff.

You really did us proud – and we hope to pop back to Chichester soon for a more relaxed and leisurely meal at the restaurant soon!

Helen and Dan Kujawski – 4th February 2017

We seriously cannot thank you enough for making our day just perfect!
From the first guest to arrive to the last to leave the service your team provided was simply impeccable – you completely blew everyone away! We have had so many family members and friends telling us how impressed they were and recalling their own moments of the extraordinary service they received – which is an absolute joy for a bride and groom to hear.
From our point of view, the service for the top table was nothing short of perfect. In fact we can’t remember being better attended to in our entire lives. Vas (we hope we’re spelling that correctly) was absolutely first class, he knew what we needed before we needed it and was constantly on hand, this extended long after the meal service and Laura May and I were still finding our glasses topped up on the dance floor and out by the fire pit – please can you pass our sincere thanks onto him.
In Rob we experienced a top class front of house, every interaction we had with him was a joy and his relaxed and flexible manner put us totally at ease at every point throughout the day… even agreeing to play along with the brother-of-the-bride’s surprise speech and temporarily having the entire room giving him ‘daggers’! His professionalism both on the day and at the planning meeting felt like it pulled the whole wedding together and we knew everything was under control with him. Thank you Rob.
Finally, the food itself, one of our only regrets from the day was that we were running on emotion and simply didn’t have enough appetite to fully enjoy what every guest said was just a stunning meal. We really appreciate Sam’s professionalism and passion to take the time ahead of the wedding to ensure we were 100% happy, and we absolutely were.
Thank you all again, all the planning help (across the time zones!) the incredible food, and of course the first class service, Field & Fork delivered 100% and truly helped make our wedding day unforgettable for every single guest.
Laura and Dean Newman – 17th December 2016

Thanks so much for making our day run so smoothly and such a delicious meal! We had so many comments from our family & friends about how much they enjoyed the food. It was also great you could source the beer from Southwick as it is one of our favourites.

Please pass on our thanks to Rob who worked tirelessly in the background and foreground when required to ensure our day was relaxed and so special.

Sarah and Peter Lindstrom – 12th November 2016

A massive thank you to everyone that was involved in our wedding last Saturday 26th. The food and service was amazing, everyone commented on how lovely the food was (especially the mash potato!)

Massive thanks to Rob, because without him I’m sure the day would not have gone as well as it did! Nothing was too much trouble, … Can’t thank him enough.

Also to ‘Naz’ we think it was, the barman/waiter who always made sure we had a full glass during the meal and constantly supplied Ashley with anything alcoholic in the evening!!

The day was exactly as we hoped it would be. We will definitely be recommending Southend Barns and yourselves.

Becky and Ashley Edwards – 26th November 2016

Neil and I would like to thank you for your help over the past months with the planning of Laura and Matt’s wedding, which took place on the 7th October.  You were always very helpful whenever we contacted you and for that we were very grateful.

Laura and Matt had a wonderful day and so did we.  Our guests enjoyed themselves and many of them complimented us on our choice of venue and the delicious food.  Please pass on our compliments to the chef.  Your precise planning allowed the bridal party to relax and enjoy a memorable day.  The excellent facilities provided by Southend Barns combined with Field and Fork’s expertise provide a winning formula which we would recommend to anyone planning a wedding.
