Kate Lennie - Sept 2017


I booked with Plenty Of Thyme for my sisters 30th. Dave was fantastic in his correspondence leading up to the evening, dealing with everyone's dietary requirement's. The night itself was stress free with the most amazing food being served to us all. I would book again and definitely recommend to others.

Dave and the team pulled of a blinder for our wedding this weekend! We wouldn't have changed a thing! I've been craving his pizza ever since.

He was brilliant through all the planning and nothing was to much trouble.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you guys did yesterday. Jodie was the dream front of house manager, I could not thank her enough! You were also amazing I am so appreciative! You could not have done more for us!! From canapes, to main, to evening food - it was incredible.

OMG! How amazing! Had a home party with 103 guests and POT provided all the catering we needed. the staff were professional and the chef was wonderful. We were able to enjoy the party and mingle with our guests in the knowledge that all was being taken care of. Will definitely use again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
