“We couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Laura and her team. The food was incredible and so many of our guests highlighted how amazing the BBQ lamb was. We have had so many compliments from our guests about the food. Laura managed to make everything look seamless even though the day ran well behind schedule when both the ceremony and the speeches went on for far longer than anticipated, but you would never have known!
The quality of the crockery and the hire items was fantastic and made our tables look exactly as I had imagined, and the bar staff were great and managed to keep the drinks flowing all night.
It was a pleasure working with Laura from the initial conversations, to the incredible tasting meal she cooked at our house right the way up to the day itself. Thank you so much Laura and your incredible team, we couldn’t have asked for more!”

“It was a pleasure working with Laura from our initial conversation, right through to paying our final invoice. She totally got what we wanted and the vibe we were going for. She travelled a fair way to produce a stunning tasting evening, and continued to be easy to work with right through planning the menu, up to the wedding day. On the day, Laura and her team were superb, immaculately turned out and all so happy to be involved in our special day, chatting with our guests and contributing enormously to the atmosphere – so crucial at a garden wedding reception . We’d wondered if they’d be able to replicate the tastiness of the food on the tasting evening for 100 odd guests, but Laura and team surpassed themselves serving our guests the most beautiful Mediterranean inspired BBQ food, all beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The empty plates and wonderful comments we had from friends and family were proof enough that it was exceptional, and to this day it remains the best food we’ve ever had at a wedding (although we would say that)
Working within the constraints of our home made bar, Laura’s bar team made sure everyone had one hell of a party, in-fact, at times, the staff looked like they were having as much fun as the guests, which is exactly what we wanted! One of the boys bought drinks to the dance floor for me so we didn’t have to stop dancing, and the drinks flowed late into the night with ‘English Garden’ and ‘Dark and stormy’ cocktails flowing from start to finish. The quality of the hired crockery, glassware and cutlery was superb, and brought Elle’s table plan to life when we set the tables the day before, it all arrived and got collected seamlessly.
Thank you Laura and your amazing team for being the Icing on our wedding cake of a day, you pulled out all the stops and it wouldn’t have been the same without you”

“Thank you very much for making last Tuesday such a successful evening.
The food you produced was excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed our medieval themed banquet!
Everyone was so impressed from how you arrived and set up …producing a fantastic meal …. to leaving an immaculate kitchen; truly professional.”

“Laura was a godsend. Organising a 40th birthday garden party was no easy feat and the thought of doing our own food just added on the extra pressure. Laura sorted out a menu for me, she brought her own plates, cutlery and presented the food in a visually appealing way. The food was full of interesting flavours, was delicious and had many positive comments from my friends. Also Laura managed the kitchen and cleared everything away. If you’re thinking of having a party and don’t want the stress of cooking and clearing up then I would recommend Pickle and Fizz. “

“We hired Laura at Pickle & Fizz for a summer garden party in August 2017, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a caterer. Laura came to our home and fed over 70 people for a large buffet, and was friendly, calm, and professional throughout. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious. The menu was fresh and imaginative, and everyone was so impressed with the meal – I lost count of the number of compliments we received. We’ll definitely use Pickle & Fizz again for future events”

“So sorry for the delay in sending feedback – things have been rather busy since we got married with work, we booked a honeymoon & are also moving house! No rest for the wicked…
So in terms of feedback – we were so so happy with everything you did for us. The entire process was a dream and you were such a pleasure to work with. The food was amazing and exactly what we wanted, everyone commented on how delicious everything was! My cousin admitted afterwards that he ate about 18 spinach & feta rolls… The service was also great and having you there was a massive weight of our minds, you were not only our caterer, but our event manager – and really helped our day run like clockwork. Our wedding day was fantastic from start to finish and we are so happy we chose Pickle & Fizz. So thank you so much.”

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the lovely dinner on Friday night. It was absolutely delicious, we enjoyed everything particularly the salsa verde and the amazing slow roasted tomatoes. None of us had ever had pine nut puree either and it went so well with the artichokes and poached egg. Dessert was lovely too, lemon tart is one of my mum’s favourites and she really enjoyed it. You managed to cater really well for our fussy tastes and still come up with interesting and flavour-packed dishes that we won’t forget in a hurry. It was also really nice to meet you and have you in the house for the evening – one of my reservations had been that it might be a bit weird having a stranger in such a small space, but you made it easy and relaxing having you around.”

“Laura prepared and served an absolutely delicious meal for 20 for a private party. The food was fantastic, plentiful and beautifully prepared and served.She managed this in the smallest of kitchens, with very limited space.’ I shall certainly be recommending her to friends and would definitely employ her again.”
“Laura came to cook for our very challenging family for 12 days this August. The age range was from 3 to 70, with many family members requiring a gluten, sugar and dairy free diets. Laura coped magnificently, creating delicious dishes to suit all tastes while remaining calm and sunny throughout her entire stay. She did all the shopping, menu planning and meal preparation and we could not recommend her more highly. We hope she will be a regular feature in our family summers at home”.
“Pickle & Fizz provided an exquisite tasting menu for me in February 2016, along a seafood theme. Each course was creative, beautifully presented and importantly-tasted sublime. Laura was accommodating and personable, ensuring each dish was served on time and with a smile. I look forward to my next event with Pickle & Fizz”
“If I could…I would give Laura a Michelin * for her seafood! As an engineer, I have great respect for the innovation that goes into Laura’s food…especially ‘that’ chocolate cake”
