JAMES - DINNER, JAN 2020

 


2019


Lin and her team provided the catering for our charity ball recently at The Corn Barn. The food tasted delicious with great variety and dietary requirements were brilliantly catered for. The service was impeccable. Thank you very much for everything- I knew everything would be “on point” with LAP Food and Bars and we were definitely not disappointed.
REBECCA - CHARITY BALL, DEC 2019


"Just WOW. It is a very rare thing in life to meet someone who loves what they do and are exceptionaly good at it. This applies to Lin and her team in every way. The food at our wedding was fantastic and the staff were wonderful, so charming and professional ...... All of our guests were amazingly taken care of - endless food and booze. That was just the start of it.. Lin and her team made sure everything throughout the whole day ran smoothly - we had no worries whatsoever, Lin said she would take care of everything and she literally did! LAP provided the staff to run our home made bar and they were fantastic - a bar with 360 degrees serving space! Lin and her husband Paul are just charming - the whole wedding process was seamless from our first meeting to the big day. Lin was on hand for the whole week in the run up to our wedding, popping in to see if she could help with anything and getting involed with the chaos.
One more thing to add... when Lin said her team would clear up after the wedding we were blown away when Dom and I returned on Sunday morning to see there was nothing to do, even the tea lights had been taken out of the jam jars from the archs and put away neatly into boxes!
We cannot recommend LAP enough, if you want a perfect wedding with zero stress then choose Lin. We are trying to plan our next party to recreate this all over again with Lin and her team!!"

AMBER & DOMONIC - WEDDING, OCT 2019

"Lap food catered for my sons wedding last Friday and we couldn’t fault anything. Staff were very friendly and professional. Food was outstanding. Canapés/ 2 coarse meal and evening Burger Station was above and beyond what we were expecting. Want to do it all again. Thank you to everyone at Lap foods."
HAYLEY - WEDDING, OCT 2019

"I simply can't put into words how amazing you and your team were.

MATT & JESS - Wedding, AUG 2019

"Lin, Paul and the team catered for our wedding this month - we honestly couldn’t recommend them enough from our initial enquiry last August to the early hours of the day after our wedding the attention to detail didn’t stop! We had canapés, roast beef and a selection of deserts - loads of people commented it was the best roast they had ever had and definitely the best roast potatoes! We went for fish and chips in the evening and all I can say is WOW they were amazing! It wasn’t just the food but the numerous little ideas that Lin came up with to make our day just a little bit different - having done 8 events in 10 days I honestly don’t know how you guys did it! We can’t thank LAP enough for everything- if you want a catering team that go above and beyond these are your guys.
AMY - WEDDING, JULY 2019


"Lin and her team catered for our wedding a couple of weeks ago and since then all we’ve heard from our guests is ‘THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE’.

VERITY - WEDDING, DEC 2017

"Lin & her team, recently catered for a yfc dinner myself and Amy Trehane organised. 210 in conditions no one should have to work in!! From the moment we meet Lin we had complete confidence in her, incredible organisation, planning, helpfulness was unbelievable. Lin and her team had everything covered and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Only Lin could turn out this number of roast beef meals to so many guesses in 20 mins to Michelin star standard. We have had endless calls since to say how incredibly the food was, from a hard audience, comments such as "best food ever". I look forward to using Lin & her team again soon, and cannot recommend them highly enough. A*** very very special"

Lin and Paul and a select few others helped to set up the night before and again, they went above and beyond their 'catering duties' we hired tables, crockery, table linen and even the bar from them. Lin even drew me up an itinerary for the whole day and ran through this the night before, I made every decision along the way with Lin, excellent communication skills! I highly recommend LAP food and bars, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you so much for making our wedding such an enjoyable day without any stress! Xx"

RICHARD & LAURA - WEDDING, SEPT 2016

"I would like to thank Lin and Paul for the professional service. The tables but eye-catching. Cutlery and glasses precision placed on lily white linen. Robin and Katie had chosen roast beef Yorkshire pudding and trimming for the main course followed by a platter of mixed sweets. The food really did happen 'wow' factor, hot plates a plenty with incredible tenderness and taste. The delicate meringues, slices of sponge slices plus cream brought one close to gluttony.
Thank you to the ladies that waited on table. Their team work, pleasant attitude and groomed appearance was a credit to the all. The Hog Roast and trimmings which was organised for the evening, again maintained the high standard. Congratulations Paul on building your drinks bar. It adds a touch of class to any environment. Guests always remember the food and you certainly delivered. You make it seem easy but I know there's a lot of work behind the scenes. Thank you."

KAT & JONNY - WEDDING, JULY 2016

"Lin and her team were exceptional from beginning to end. Their service was impeccable, their organisation could not be faulted and the food as delicious. Nothing was too much trouble, including last minute dietary requirements from guests as late as the night before. We were impressed from the beginning by how Lin went well beyond what you would expect from a wedding catering service. She took an active part in helping us with the management and organisation of the event, thoroughly familiarised herself with the venue, liaised with their representatives and with us, was always a helpful ear at the end of the phone or email. We knew we were in good hands from the beginning. This continued after the event when she left the venue absolutely spotless after serving a delicious brunch to overnight guests - some of whom were leaving very early in the day and had complex food orders of their own ... Not least, her food was superb - we had nothing but praise from all our guests. We simply could not recommend her enough!"
