Testimonials

Richard and Claire provided the catering for Michael Carrick Foundation’s first ever golf day which we held at Prestbury Golf Club back in October. From the breakfast rolls in the morning to the buffet in the evening, everything was fantastic!

We’d worked with the pair prior to the event and they created a bespoke menu to fit our event brief perfectly. Nothing was too much. Everyone who attended the day commented on the quality of the food and variety offered.

We cannot thank Richard and Claire enough for all of their efforts. We’re looking forward to next year already.

Many thanks and best wishes, Michael and Lisa Carrick (December 2019)


Richard has been looking after the East Cheshire Hospice Charity Golf Day for the past 5 years. He and his team do a marvelous job every year and it is very much appreciated, contributing to making a memorable day for all concerned.

Approximately 110 people sit down to a three course dinner with us each year, and the Menu, food and service, has always been exceptional.

Richard and the Team help make everyone’s day and all enjoy the food and service in the clubhouse.

Our event is over-subscribed as a consequence and grows from strength to strength. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Richard and his team to you if you are looking to host an event at the Golf Club.

Nigel Preston, PGA Professional and Company Director and joint organiser of the East Cheshire Hospice Golf Day (December 2019)


I just wanted to write to thank all at Prestbury Golf club for looking after us so well on our recent visit.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal with you, and appreciate you accommodating our particular requirements, we hope to visit you again in the near future.

Kind regards, John Davies, C.I.G.S Captain (June 2018)
