Thank you ever so much for being the perfect caterer. Everything ran so smoothly, was totally delicious and so beautiful. Several guests write in their thank you letters that it was the most beautiful party they had been to. You all certainly went the extra mile - the site wasn’t easy - with the trek to the tables winding through the woods and down through the paddock! You completely understood how important the aesthetic aspect of the evening was. Please thank the staff for seamless service
21st Birthday Party, Piltdown July 2018
Thank you so much for everything, you were all amazing, the food was great and more than a few people have said to me since... how did they do it, there were so many people but my glass was never empty !!! Your team also looked great and I felt very looked after by you both, offering me drinks and canapés galore! I’m sure you were pedalling fast, but the service appeared seemless! The perfect swans! Mum also couldn’t believe how tidy the house was so thank also for that, and saving her one extra job!
Bride, Wedding in Lewes June 2018
I just wanted to personally thank you and your team for not only your delicious food, but for the courteous and helpful way you looked after us all. Each element of the dinner was just right from the melt-in-the-mouth Salmon Terrine to the delicately decorated salads, and your tasty bowl food on Sunday was just right and much appreciated. The bar was run smoothly and the service just seemed to happen! And we much appreciated all your help with clearing up - the kitchen was left immaculate. All in all, you and your team were tremendous! Thank you.
70th Birthday Dinner & Drinks Party, Ditchling May 2018
I hasten to drop you a line to say that it was a delight to work with you today. I congratulate you and your team on providing an excellent lunch. Good food provided by your thoroughly professional and delightful team contributed hugely to the success of the day.
Declaration Ceremony Lunch, Lewes March 2018, Under Sheriff of East/West Sussex
Everyone was very complimentary about you, friendly greetings, attentive service, and good food. But the boys scoffed all the cake! Many thanks, I was very pleased, and you were an essential part of making the occasion go very well indeed. Please pass on my appreciation to all concerned.
Funeral, Chailey, March 2018
I just wanted to write on behalf of all of us to say thank you for last Monday. Lots of compliments about the very delicious food. You and your staff were such trusted hands. It's such a weird day, a funeral day, and to be able to just walk out of the house with nothing to offer the returning guests, to find on our return, the marquee all beautifully set up, glasses filled, and food on the go. Such a great relief. You really do run a very smart operation.
Funeral, Haywards Heath, November 2017
A huge thank you to you both and your wonderful team for all your hard work on Saturday.
Not only was your food wonderful (so many comments and compliments received by my guests) but you and your team bent over backwards to assist in every way. You made the day and your team are a credit to you. Even with monsoon conditions against you everyone continued with a smile and the genuine care and attention you all applied to everything you did shone through. I would not hesitate n recommending you and only wish that I had let you cater for the bar in addition to the food. Thank you again, you were all utterly professional and went above and beyond. Thank you for your help, the exceptional canapes and fantastic service made our garden party a really special occasion
Wedding, Iford Village Hall, July 2017
A huge thank you from myself and the rest of the team for everything you did last night, it was a tremendous evening and credit goes to you and your team, you were excellent! I received so many unprompted positive comments from guests and Candriam team members on you and your team, you did yourselves proud and a great advert for your business. The food and it’s presentation was spot on, our Global CEO commented on it this morning and went through every canapé in detail! You may get a call from him in the future for his private parties. Your team were friendly and super-efficient and from my perspective, you arrived and took over, leaving nothing for me to worry about, exactly what I needed.
Head of UK Distribution, Candriam, London, June 2017
A massive thank you to Louise and Katie. From the first meeting, we experienced nothing but pure professionalism which catered for all our tastes and selections. Not only was the food all delicious,they provided an impeccable service! The staff were all brilliant and couldn't do enough to help ! All our guests complimented the fabulous meal ,we would only be too happy to highly recommend this awesome pair to anyone! Thanks for helping to create great memories "
Bride & Groom, Hendall Barns, March 2017
You have now catered for my son's wedding, my best friend's birthday lunch and my birthday 'do', which have all be huge successes. I feel that to just call you caterers is such an understatement. You go way above & beyond just providing and serving delicious food. You and your team instill confidence that all is totally under control thus making your client feel they are in safe hands and can therefore relax and enjoy the function. Each time I've met you both, I feel like I've been with lovely friends. Thank you again, until the next family event!
Mrs K, Tunbridge Wells, March 2017
Firstly I would like to apologise for not doing this sooner and secondly say an enormous heart felt thank you from all of us. The do on Friday was absolutely lovely and considering the circumstances that was a real achievement. The delicious food, wonderful staff, and amazing care shown to us all was really appreciated by all our family and friends.
Really wonderful job, thank you!
Emma, Event at Firle Riding Stables, March 2017
We wanted to say a massive thank you for for the catering at our recent garden party. It was such a success and the evening was just perfect. Even the torrential downpour just prior to all our guests arriving didn't faze Louise and her team. Everyone has commented on how great the food and canapés were and I don't think there was ever an empty glass all evening. You really are an amazing team, nothing was too much trouble and you made our evening such a special night. Can't wait to do it again!! Thanks again.
50th Birthday Party, Lindfield, November 2016
Thank you so much for the most amazing team on saturday - everyone has said how brilliant the caterers were - everything just magically appeared, glasses filled, food delicious, miraculous clean kitchen at the end. You just had every last aspect nailed - gifts, arrivals bar staff, down to the last burgers to satisfy the munchies at midnight. Your whole team were so friendly and just gave the impression they wanted us all to have a great time - and we certainly did!
Happy happy people.
Thank you again
50th Birthday Party, Cuckfield June 2016
Our party was a massive success and Louise's Kitchen was entirely integral to that. In the planning process Katie took time to understand exactly what we wanted and translated that perfectly. On the day Louise and her team swept in, took control and delivered beyond our expectations. Not only did they deliver great food and do an awesome job of the bar, but were also really lovely people to have around. No one had an empty glass all evening, everybody loved the street food and we would highly recommend them to anyone without hesitation. It was a ripper, thank you all very much!
40th Birthday Party, Chailey, October 2015
Thank you all so much for your wonderful cooking, service and organization on the day; it was such a memorable and amazing occasion. You should also know that we have had nothing but compliments from our guests with regards to the food (especially the canapes)!
Bride & Groom, Selmeston, October 2015
We were delighted with the way you and your team looked after us at our party on Sunday. The canapes were a good light starter and lunch came well above my expectations. It all looked most attractive on the serving table and and was really delicious too. We heard many compliments on your food from our guests. I loved it all! We liked the friendly and quiet efficiency of you and your team who contributed an extra sparkle to the day.
Mr & Mrs T, Lunch, Newick, September 2015
Not only were you right in your optimistic prediction about the weather yesterday evening, but you and your two charming helpers produced the most fabulous nibbles and service. I cannot remember going to another function where the canapes were so delicious and plentiful or the service so efficient and unobtrusive or where the attention to detail was so good e.g. the lighted nightlights at the end. And after you had left Wendy commented that is looked as though you had never been! Wonderful. So thank you very much from us both for making it a most enjoyable evening for our guests and ourselves.
Drinks Party, Newick August 2015
Thank you so much for the massive part you played in our day. Everything was perfect and the staff we particularly impressive. I would recommend you to anyone and will not hesitate to implore anyone I know hosting an event to engage your services! Thank you so much once again.
Bride & Groom, Wedding, July 2015 @ Hendall Barn
Katie and Louise put so much towards making our wedding the most special of days - they listened very closely to our ideas and put them into practice brilliantly. Getting the food right was such an important part of bringing the whole day together, and they hit the nail on the head, from the beautiful canapes (which disappeared instantly) to the much-commented-upon lemon posset - absolutely
delicious and efficiently served. Thank you to you both and all your team for your hard work.' Bride & Groom, Weddding at Monk's House & Chailey, June 2015
Thank you so much for giving Louisa and Nat a wonderful wedding day. One guest said they could just have eaten the canapes, they were so good! The main meal was great, very well presented and organised, there was never a queue for the food but everyone was moved up to be served with perfect timing. The staff were all very helpful and you seemed to have just the right number there. The desserts were lovely, as was the evening buffet. We appreciated the fact that you use quality local produce (and had our favourite High Weald Dairy cheeses on the evening buffet!). Thank you too for your care in ensuring that everyone's food allergies were catered for.
Mother & Father of the Bride, Wedding at Milwards Estate, Laughton May 2015
Dear Louise & Katie - thank you we had a wonderful time at Mount Harry on Saturday and much of that was down to you guys, your professionalism, service, staff and of course the wonderful food you served. The pavlovas were especially good. Wedding, Mount Harry Lodge, Lewes May 2015
Many thanks for your and your colleagues’ help on Saturday – I was very impressed and clearly made the right choice. May 2015 Tea Party, Slaugham
We both wanted to take this opportunity to thank you both once again for everything on the day, and all the organisation in the run up. Everything was set out perfectly, ran so smoothly, the food was amazing and we've had rave reviews from all the guests. All in all it has been an absolute pleasure liaising with you both from start to finish. We couldn't be happier that we chose Louise's Kitchen for our day. Thank you!
Best of luck with everything for the future and in your continued success with Louise's Kitchen. We'll certainly have you first on our list, and to recommend friends and family for any catering needs in the future!
Bride & Groom, Hendall Barn, Wedding October 2014
Dear Katie & Louise - what a resounding success! We never had a doubt about the food, from the fabulous canapés, personalised pies to the incredible meringues was all so beautifully presented and truly scrumptious! You have a wonderful “CAN DO” attitude and went way beyond the call of duty by arranging and organising the cheese wheel to warming through the sausage rolls! I didn’t give the food or organisation, laying the tables and all the other touches a thought because we had complete confidence in you – thank you! It has been a pleasure meeting and working with you. I am sure Ben and Kate will be in touch when they return.
Many thanks once again - Groom's Parents, Wedding Hendall Barn, October 2014
Thank you so much for the amazing catering you provided for us for our wedding day. The food was amazing, as was the service and our guests haven’t stopped talking about how good the catering was, so a big thank you to Louise, you were incredible at bringing all of the suppliers together and making sure that all of the planning and preparation ran like clockwork! We had the most amazing day.
Miranda & Nigel, Wedding Hendall Barn September 2014
Thank you so much for all the help and work you put into our wedding to make it all so amazing. Everyone commented how fantastic the food was. Your staff were friendly and can we especially thank the gentleman you had on the bar. Everyone loved him and the measures he poured! What a lovely personality! We will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know!
Mr & Mrs Bedford, Wedding September 2014
Thank you so much for organising such wonderful food and service for Chris' party. Everyone has commented on how fantastic it was and we all had such a great time. Please pass our thanks on to all your team.
Chris & Kirsty, 40th Birthday Party, Newick
We wanted to thank you all for your help at our Summer Party last Thursday evening. You really helped make the organisation of the event stress-free for us and the evening was a tremendous success. The beautifully presented canapés you created were delicious and we really appreciated the impeccable service provided by your team who were both friendly and professional thoughout the evening. We were delighted to hear you enjoyed working with us too as we are hoping to do it all again next year.
Westminster Advisors, Drinks Party, Central London, July 2014
We cannot emphasise enough how impressed we were with Louise's Kitchen who catered at our wedding. Their food, service and attention to detail were superb. We were deeply impressed, as were our guests who were very vocal with their compliments. Louise and Katie were a pleasure to work with in their creativity, prompt, efficient preparation and handling of our day. They gave us such confidence beforehand, that catering was one aspect we didn't need to concern ourselves at all with on the day - which was very much appreciated."
Once again we cannot thank you both enough for your fabulous food, care and attention to detail.
Our very best wishes for your continued success.
Debbie & Cliff, Wedding Hendall Barn April 2014
We had high expectations, and sure enough, we were not disappointed. The canapés were delicious. The wedding breakfast was sumptuous, beautifully presented, and impeccably served. Even a simple buffet towards the end of the evening had people rolling their eyes in delight.
But that's not what we want to thank you for. No, we want thank you for that, and everything else you and your team did to make the day go so well. Talking to our friends and family, we've loved to hear all the stories of the 'little' things that you and your staff would do to make people feel welcome and looked after.
Many, many thanks to you and your team for helping to make the day everything we had hoped it would be.
Matt & Melody, Wedding, Hendall Barns, March 2014
I wanted to quickly add my personal thanks to you, as always, the food was delicious and the service perfect. Thank you so much.
Dinner Party, East Hoathly, January 2014

evening and greatly enjoyed by Guy and I which would have not been the case
if we had not had all your wonderful help.
The food looked and tasted fantastic. Looking forward to a repeat
Dinner Party, Horsted Keynes, December 2013

Mr W, Drinks Party, Cuckfield, Oct 2013
Morning Katie and Louise,
We are now saying – “this time last week……..”
We all had a wonderful event and thank you and all the staff for the HUGE excellent part which you played. Guests have had nothing but praise for the service and refreshments provided – all went to plan. Please pass our sincere thanks to everyone involved. Slowly coming back to normal routine – whatever that be – and have already recommended you to guests with events coming up.
Again our thanks and very best wishes to you all
Mother & Father of the Bride, Shermansbury September 2013
First of all we want to thank and congratulate you on two fantastic days of catering and care. Without exception we have recieved very positive comments from all our guests on both days about the quality of the food, it's presentation and its taste.This has been particularly true of the non- standard eaters( vegetarians, pregnant mothers to be etc!) who all remarked on how well they were looked after. Particular praise for you and your staff who were discreet, helpful, attentive and a pleasure to have around on both days. We would be more than happy to provide references for you in future if this was ever needed.
Mother & Father of the Bride, Streat, September 2013
We certainly did enjoy last night, it was a splendid evening and everybody was full of praise in respect of the catering arrangments, with one exception they were all at our Golden Wedding, so the main comment was - "Well up to standard." Thank you very much for organising everything so well, and Sarah and Tara were brilliant, so efficient yet so unobtrusve, a very clever act to do. The canapes were lovely and it all made for a memorable evening. Please pass on my very grateful thanks to both Sarah and Tara for their eficiency and very pleasant way they dealt with everything, it was a joy to have them in the house. Your staff are ever so good in the way they clear up, Tara even swept the kitchen floor for us, I think we finished up with a cleaner kitchen than when we started with.
Thank you so much! We had the best day! We would love to thank you and your team for all your hard work, you were fantastic! Tom was so appreciative of all the help in the morning setting up and we both were so pleased with how everything was packed away and left.
Mr Clare, Uckfield, September 2013
The food was amazing! We had so many comments about how good it was! I truly believe our day went without a hitch and that is down to dealing with wonderful people like yourselves!
Thank you both again.
Chelsea & Tom, Wedding Cuckfied, June 2013
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for your amazing service and food at our recent wedding. You provided such friendly and professional advice on the run up the day as well as being fabulous on the day – the food was gorgeous. You certainly helped make the day stress free!
Mr & Mrs I, Wedding held at Hendall, May 2013
Louise’s Kitchen produced all the catering and bar for a high profile event for our company. Not only the food, but the service was impeccable and they made us look great! We intend to use them for any future events – Thank you Katie and Lou for all your hard work and attention to detail.
Local Marketing Manager, Robinson Low Francis, May 2013
Thank you so much for providing the catering on our wedding day.
We thoroughly enjoyed planning everything with you down the finest detail so
that everything on the day went 'swimmingly'. You and your staff were
always friendly, helpful and smiley, handling every request with
professionalism and courtesy. So a very big thank you to you and your team,
I hope we can work with you again in the near future and will not hesitate
to recommend you to colleagues and friends.
Mr & Mrs C, wedding held at Hendall Barn, May 2013
I would just like to say a heartfelt thank you to you and Katie, and your staff, for making the reception after Nick and Lydia’s wedding flawless. I had complete confidence in Louise’s Kitchen and was able to fully enjoy the reception, because I knew that all eventualities had been thought of and planned for. The whole event ran like clockwork due to you and your staff, who were all charming and helpful. The food was delicious, just what we had in mind, and the service was excellent.
The whole thing was perfect, and it was so nice to be able to leave it all in your capable hands. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs T, Lewes, April 2013
It's always a conundrum - you want to hold a party for your friends that they will remember for years, but you don't want to spend the evening in the kitchen missing out on all of the fun. I've never used a caterer before as I always imagined it would be too expensive and was only for weddings......
Louise pulled it out of the bag for me, she worked within my budget to deliver the most fantastic food that worked beautifully on the night. Lovely pulled pork that satisfied even the hungriest guest with some salads that were delicios as they were unique. Everything was completely stress free which was our number one priority.
So if you are looking for someone that can deliver fantastic food that's stress free and makes your party one to remember then you'd be silly to use anyone but Louise and her team!
Fleur Copping, Chailey, April 2013
It was a great shoot and the food was much appreciated and loved by all - very happy. Thanks for doing it all, and next time we're down that way we'll give you a call!

"My husband and I have, following a good introduction to Louise’s Kitchen, been in touch with them on several occasions over the last few years.
We have been consistently impressed by their personal attention to detail, by the excellence of their team, and, above all, by the quality of the meals Louise and Katie have produced. Their prices have been very acceptable to us and we know that everything will be well under control once Louise & Co. have arrived - we would be happy to recommend them to anyone"
Mr & Mrs S, Sutton Hall, Barcombe
“We hired Louise’s Kitchen to provide catering at a family christening party in a local village hall. Louise & Katie along with their team provided a seamless service through the menu and event planning stage to the day itself which gave us the chance to truly relax and enjoy what was a very special day. The food was delicious, the presentation lovely and the service provided by the team was first class. I would strongly recommend Louise’s Kitchen and would certainly use them again at future events.”
Mrs & Mrs P, Haywards Heath
"Having Louise's Kitchen to cater for our party was such a treat - the guests just loved the menu, I could relax and enjoy the party and my kitchen was spotless at the end - Louise was so relaxed she bought a wonderful calming influence over us all - and the waitresses and bar staff were fantastic too - thank you so much".
Mrs S - Newick
"A book launch for any author is a special occasion. Quite apart from the book itself, the ingredients for success include a stunning setting, interested guests and a very special caterer. To meet the latter ingredient we chose Louise's Kitchen. Despite a lack of previous London experience they were superb and we were thrilled with the quality of service. The food was delicious and superbly presented, the choice of wines was inspired and, above all, the staff were outstanding. Cheerful, discrete, knowledgeable and beautifully mannered they anticipated guests needs with effortless ease: we could not have been more pleased. Strongly recommended."
Mr L, Winchester
Thank you for taking the stress out of organising our company's 10 year
birthday party. The food looked and tasted amazing and the service was
absolutely fantastic. We'd love to work with you again.
Marketing Manager, Health Management Limited
Our first time to use Louise’s Kitchen will certainly not be our last! Our dinner party was everything we’d hoped and more. Flexibility on menu ideas, fantastic food, great service and a sparkling kitchen when they left! Everything was professionally executed and beautifully presented - including the staff! Thank you and see you again soon.
Mr & Mrs C, Ditchling
My husband and I heard a rumour that there might be a sunny Sunday in September so at short notice, we contacted Louise's Kitchen and asked those charming girls if they could provide canapés for a drinks party.The food they produced was a delight - it looked so good, tasted even better but more than that, the whole operation was accomplished with such courtesy and efficiency by the delightful staff . There was absolutely nothing for my husband and me to do but to greet our guests - and the sun did shine as promised!
Mrs M, Cuckfield
"Thank you so much to Louise's Kitchen for a party well done! They took on all the catering and practical arrangements, such as plate and glass hire, for my fortieth which meant I enjoyed the celebrations without the stress of organising any of that. The food looked as gorgeous as it tasted, beautifully presented and Louise and her team were complete stars when some late-arriving guests also needed to be fed and she rustled up something for them as well! I am looking forward to Louise's Kitchen taking on future events and would thoroughly recommend them".
Mrs V, Surrey
"My mother's day this year was a whole new experience! Fresh, delicious food delivered to my door on the day itself! I cannot fault the service, flexibility and fantastic fare from Lousie's Kitchen! The lunch they created was so fabulous, even 2 usually fussy children did not complain and had seconds!!!! The chocolate cheescake.was sublime ..........!!"
M. Chisholm, North Chailey
"The first requirement for a caterer who comes into your home to cook meals or serve at a drinks party is that they are nice people, totally trustworthy and employ delightful staff, after that you expect delicious food. Louise and Katie tick every box, there is only one standard, the best from all departments, that is what I want and, over 5 years have always been delivered".
Baroness Cumberlege of Newick
"After the birth of our daughter and as a present from my mother in law, we were given a three month supply of food from Louise’s Kitchen. Each week a wonderful parcel arrived with five scrumptious and nutritious meals, which just needed popping into the oven. Utter heaven!”
Mrs C, Fletching
"Louise's Kitchen really did a fabulous job and my 40th party would not have been such a success without Katie and her team. Katie's attention to detail is a credit to her, the canapes were delicious and their were lots of compliments in terms of their taste and presentation. The staff were very friendly and efficient and made sure everything ran smoothly. I am so glad I asked Louise's Kitchen to cater for my canapes party as it meant I could really enjoy the night."
Mrs P, Chelwood Gate
''My Company employed Louise`s Kitchen to do the catering at a launch party held by a Property Company at the opening of their Show Home on a development of new houses. The food was exquisite and several of the guests commented upon both the range and the quality of the canapés. More than that, the standard of service was excellent. When the servers were asked for the ingredients and manner of preparation of the canapés, they were informative and answered with a smile. I would most certainly recommend Louise`s Kitchen”.
Mr WB, Lewes
"Louise's Kitchen is a joy. It is my best East Sussex find since we have moved down from London 3 years ago. It exudes excellence and professionalism. I will never go anywhere else”.
Mrs B, East Hoathly
"We have used Louise's services over the last 5 years for a number of special occasions. We always wholeheartedly recommend Louise to our friends, not only for her exceptional cooking, but for her professionalism, warmth, attention to detail and discretion. She also seems to have a knack of leaving our kitchen in a better state than she found it!"
Mrs B, Ringmer
