On a personal note, I have also had occasion to try their fine dining experience when attending Airbourne, which was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic”
Darren Coe, C Brewer & SonsBusiness Lunch & Private Dining

“On behalf of everyone at St Wilfred’s Hospice we would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for your support and helping make the Saffrons Lunch a magnificent success.
This year we raised over £40,000. Thank you so very much. Many people have commented on the delicious lunch – well done!”
Kara Bishop & Rosemary Ross, St Wilfreds HospiceCharity Fundraiser

“Thank you so much Green Fig for catering for our wedding day. Your service was fantastic from start to finish. From your brilliantly creative ideas at the beginning when we were struggling to plan the menu to the day itself. We had in mind the idea of a picnic theme and you guys really came through with some of the most delicious recipes on the planet (particularly your amazing sausage rolls) and each dish was freshly prepared and all of the dishes we chose complimented each other. It was great as picky eaters could just eat what they fancied! On the day all of your staff and yourselves were brilliant and on hand to help with everything. The food was so good, really tasty! All of our guests complimented it (even the mustard got mentioned in a thank you card) and we’ve recommended you highly to everyone. What made the entire planning process even simpler was your brilliant customer service skills, and you accommodating changes even until the very last minute. You really helped keep our stress levels to an absolute minimum. We will definitely be using you guys again in the future. Thank you so much”
Alex Davie-Sugden – Wedding Catering

“Thank you for making my birthday such a memorable occasion.”
Jenny Hartfield – Birthday Celebrations

“Thank you SO MUCH for catering for our event – you were absolutely marvellous; the food was just right for the occasion, and there were so many compliments from the guests.
Moreover, you served and cleared and organised everything so it ran like clockwork, and we didn’t have to worry about the food and drink at all but could get on with chatting to the guests. I heard from one guest that you even made a couple of cups of tea after you had cleared away – thank you, that was so kind. And you wrapped up the leftovers and put them in the fridge for us. The kitchen was exactly how I had left it – I don’t know how you do it. I shall certainly be recommending you to all my friends”
Tessa James – Funeral Catering

“Thank you so much for the lovely food you served at our wedding on Saturday. We had so many lovely compliments about how delicious it was. The presentation was excellent and exactly what we were hoping for. You definitely exceeded our expectations so thank you so much”
Becky Rowe, Bride  – Wedding Catering

“I recently hired Green Fig Catering Company to provide a cold buffet for some business contacts. The meal needed to impress as it was an important meeting for me, and it certainly exceeded expectation!
When John arrived he was quick to set up the dishes (on proper smart looking ceramic crockery; not the disposable stuff normally expected with office catering). Better than that though was the way in which he then went about arranging the various delicacies… it was like watching Masterchef at home! The attention to detail in making our platters look fantastic was a real difference to what I’d experienced with other catering firms in the past, and when my visitors arrived they all commented on just how sumptuous the food looked.
Taste didn’t disappoint either! Every item was enjoyable and the range of flavours worked really well together. My personal favourites were the filo butternut squash parcels… Mmmm! Many thanks to John and the team at Green Fig Catering Company. I will use you again, and shall be recommending you to friends and family too”
Tim Rylatt – Action CoachBusiness Lunch Catering

“We would like to thank you for making our family wedding celebration such a success. The personal, friendly service that you provided was of a high standard and, having never organised something on this scale before, I was reassured by your advice and guidance prior to the event. On the day I really appreciated your calm, confident approach which gave me absolute confidence that the event would go well, which of course, it did. Many of our guests commented on the lovely meal and the excellent service provided by your team which was efficient but caring and contributed to everyone’s enjoyment of the meal. Thank you again for providing such a great service and I will have no hesitation in using your company again or in recommending you.”
Liz Fitzpatrick, Mother of the Bride – Wedding Catering

“The spread provided by Green Fig Catering Company was amazing. Their attention to detail in the presentation of the food was impressive. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others”
Sue Berry, Timeless TimeBusiness Lunch

“Thank you very much indeed for the really lovely lunch party you did for my 90th. It all went so well that, placed in the back as I was, I missed half the detail! But I’ve been told from every direction since how good it all was. Delicious meal, and so peacefully and calmly served by your helpful staff.”Doreen Pugh, Birthday Girl

“John, Jo & Team. We can’t thank you enough for what you did for our wedding, the place looked amazing & the food was incredible. Everybody has commented to us on how good it was & how it just kept coming. The day was perfect, thank you so much.”David & Rachel, Groom and Bride

“Just a brief note to say many thanks for all your hard work in making Rosemary and Tom’s wedding reception so special. The food was absolutely gorgeous. We had great comments about the lamb – which we cannot comment on as we are veggies! The veggie food was lovely too. How you all coped in such a small kitchen we don’t know.”Rosemary and Thomas, Bride & Groom

“The food was lovely and we all had a very enjoyable evening. All the girls commented on how good the food was. One of our party has some rather specific dietary requirements which Jo & John did a brilliant job catering for. Loved the extra touches such as the canapés before dinner. Jo & John were very friendly and the evening was very successful – I would highly recommend them!”Rachel Wood, Hen Party Guest

“We are still buzzing from all the excitement but sadly back to work. The whole day was just wonderful! We were so pleased with everything – thank you so much”Hazel Church – Mother of the Bride

“I wanted to express my thanks and say how pleased both I and my firm have been with the two recent catering jobs you have done for us.  Firstly you catered for my book club evening and provided a gorgeous selection of cheeses and meats; I loved the little extras you added and it was beautifully presented. I lasted all of 30 seconds before I admitted it was not my work, but I think they had guessed that already!

This week you provided a fantastic hamper basket when my firm entertained some business contacts at Goodwood Races. The quiches were incredible as was the home-made bread and all the other freshly made food. I was so impressed that the bread was still warm when I picked it up. There was so much food and it was incredibly good value for money. Our guests were very impressed with the food and the little touches you added. Finally the brownies and strawberries we had for pudding were the best I had ever tasted. Caroline Bourn,Solicitor

“We have been so impressed with Green Fig Catering Company from the tasting session last year to our wedding day two weeks ago. Both John & Jo were very helpful and knowledgeable giving us much guidance throughout the whole process. Our informal buffet was exactly what we wanted. The food looked and tasted amazing and their staff were fantastic – nothing was too much for them. We loved the fact that everyone was calm and organised – we didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day and everything went perfectly. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food tasted and we would highly recommend Green Fig to cater for any occasion” – Naomi & DavidBride & Groom

“We’d both like to say thanks again for everything, we had a wonderful day and the great food and service was all a massive part of it! Everybody enjoyed it, even the meat eaters! You were superb, from the design of our menu, assisting, planning and timetabling, right through to the impeccable service on the day, and the food was delicious!” – Rich & Clare Wedding Catering

I just love you guys as a couple and Jo’s quirky nature, and of course this translates to both the service & the food that you provide – so thank you!

Beautiful people, beautiful service & of course beautiful food as presented by Green Fig & the very lovely team of John & Jo. Just beautiful! Green Fig gave us exactly what we wanted from the very start; the menu was diverse, they went out of their way to incorporate our individual elements & stayed calm & quirky throughout the whole process.

Once again thank you for everything and for accommodating our ‘off-piste’ culinary desires!” – Emma & Marty Wedding 4/6/16

“Your team worked tirelessly on the day and before to produce the best food I think we’ve yet served at these lunches and all the guests I spoke to were absolutely delighted with everything you and the team did.

“Having previously struggled to find a suitable venue ensuring quality food and atmosphere at our office Christmas party we decided this year to try something different. Green Fig Catering were booked to provide an evening of Fine Dining. The evening was a complete success. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was faultless. The event was held in an open plan space , but despite this we were completely unaware of you during the preparation, cooking and even clearing up.

The evening was one of the most enjoyable parties we have organised and we will certainly look to repeat this again in the future. We have already recommended your company and will continue to do so to colleagues and clients. Thank you again for all your efforts in making our Christmas party such a success and for the exceptional standard of service.” Mark. Private Dining – 9/12/16

“Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. The food surpassed everything we hoped for. It was incredible!!

We would recommend Green Fig to anyone and will certainly be using them for any future events we have! ” Anna & James – Wedding 8/7/17

“Green Fig blew us away. From start to finish of organising and executing our marquee wedding they were helpful, friendly, and professional. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious! As well as all of the above they had a multitude of little tips and tricks that we wouldn’t have thought of in order to make the day go swimmingly. Nothing seemed to be too much bother. Staff on the day were relaxed, accommodating and friendly.  was sure that I’d find it hard to let go the reins after months of organising our big day, but the confidence the GF team instilled in us made it all the easier to hand it all over to them so we could relax and enjoy time with friends and family.” Philippa & Glen – Wedding 15/7/17
