Client Testimonials

We love hearing feedback from our clients, here are a few examples of the kind words they have shared with us after events.

“Firstly, I can only say a huge thank you to you for all that you did on Friday night – you really did save the day! The food was amazing and everybody has said how much they enjoyed it so please pass on my thanks to Jonathan and his team. And as expected the Front of House team did a sterling job during the service.” Pete

“Words do not adequately convey ….. but here goes!

We wanted to ask you to help with the wedding for two main reasons:

1. You are one of Scotland’s most acclaimed top caterers – and with considerable admiration we have watched proudly as you have grown from fledgling days; with your cooking ability, your organisational skills, your employee management and importantly, your business skills.

2. Your innate style and sure confidence allowed me to just KNOW that you would manage so much on my behalf, allowing me to stand back and deal with all the different elements that needed to be drawn together.

Once the day arrived, so much of the responsibility was in your hands and I know this may weigh heavily, and certainly the entrance seating plan system was a spot too ambitious! I simply apologise on behalf of that team!

The accolades pour in! MANY of the letters are saying that the main course was the most delicious they had EVER had at a similarly large party. One guest was THRILLED to be given the ‘deep fried haggis balls’ he had requested and I am bored of hearing about the amazing sausages which I never set eyes on so they must have been eaten by the gannets at the doorways!

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks for their quiet and professional efficiency to the point that they were clearly seen but not heard and just always on the spot.” Clarinda & Andrew

“Thank you very much for doing the catering on Saturday. We had the best day ever. Talk about getting a lucky break with the weather!  There was great feedback for the food- especially the seafood. Please say thanks to the chefs and all the waiting staff.  We’ll be recommending you!” Rebecca & Mark

“Wow! What amazing food you guys did for us – just awesome. Since we’ve been back everyone keeps telling us how good it was. Thank you also for the amazing organisation before, on and after the day! In the midst of all madness in our lives you guys were amazing – patient and on it! Thank you again for making our day so brilliant! Let us know if there’s anything we can do as we can’t recommend you more highly!” Sarah & Fraser

“Both Andrew and l want to say a huge thank you to you and the whole Ginger Snap team for everything that you did to make our wedding so special and memorable.

Right from the get go, you have been fantastic and you have always made us feel that nothing is too much trouble. The food was absolutely amazing on Saturday. After our tasting we were both so looking forward to our wedding meal and it was indeed a real highlight of our day. So many of our guests were raving about the food and said that it was the best wedding meal they have ever had, some of them even managed to have two desserts and were quite pleased with themselves!

Your waiting staff were so helpful, polite and professional and made everything run incredibly smoothly. We are both delighted with and blown away by the service that you provided – we will be recommending you to anyone who is getting married soon and if we ever have a big party again we’d definitely be booking you guys.

A huge thanks once again from us both.” Andrew & Marion

“I just wanted to thank you for everything you and the team did on Saturday in helping to make Cathie and David’s day memorable. They too, send their thanks. We had lots of comments on how you had managed to produce a meal of such quality for so many people on a tennis court! Please pass on our special thanks to Allan and your assistant for all that they did for us – it was much appreciated.” Anna Duncan

“Just wanted to drop you a note on behalf of Marlene and myself to thank you and the Ginger Snap team for your exceptional service and assistance on the occasion of Susie and Christopher’s wedding last weekend at Gilmerton House. The pre-wedding dinner on Friday evening for our wedding party was excellent and on the day our guests all agreed that the wedding breakfast, personal touch of your staff, their attention to detail and willingness to help in any way played a major part in making this occasion such a success. You can be sure we will take great pleasure in recommending Ginger Snap to friends. Once again, many thanks.” Colin Waudby

“Thank you both for an absolutely fantastic night. The food was exceptionally good and the service was spot on as always. You did a sterling job, thank you very much for all your hard work and making everything happen as I wanted it. It was a really awesome night a huge amount of it was down to you guys and your team. Please pass on my thanks to the rest, they were all fantastic and Jonathan’s lamb really was quite something!” Ed Clerk

“A massive thanks to you and your wonderful team for helping make my party so great last weekend. I had the best evening and your team made everything extra special. Please pass on my thanks.” Kate Magee

“We had an amazing time too! The food was fabulous and everyone loved the slow cooked shoulder of pork with the roast vegetables and the refreshing courgette salad. In fact when the pork appeared on those wooden serving boards, a few people were disappointed that they were expected to share! This is the first wedding I have been to where everyone wanted seconds. Loved the tapas and the Iberico ham up at the Castle as well.
Thank you also for doing a brilliant job of clearing up, it was such a relief when we arrived on Sunday morning.
In summary, many thanks for being wonderful caterers, it was a pleasure working with you.” Kate Waddell

“We were so lucky having such a beautiful day for the party. It made service so easy as everyone was outside the entire time. The canapes were simply delicious and your staff were delightful and the service was excellend and so unobtrusive. It has been a pleasure doing business with you, and I hope to be in touch with you again before long. Please pass on my thanks anf compliments to Allan, ‘Cookie’ and the girls.” Dawn Forsyth

“Elizabeth & I were very happy with how things went last Saturday. Your staff were great and please tell Allan that his pheasant was a triumph.” Robert Turcan

“Thank you for all your hard work – we had a ball! Our second son Andrew was married in Turkey – a three day spectacular – and didn’t think we would better it.  But I think we nearly pulled it off! Ginger Snap were great from start to finish – very many thanks.” Lesley Connell

“Our guests’ feedback has been amazing and the catering has been talked about especially the wonderful Venison! So glad we went for it!

I didn’t have one canapé but I was told quite a few times how wonderful they were too. I did see a couple of trays pass me and they did look fabulous. Everyone we have spoken to said it was executed brilliantly and one thing we heard many times was how the wine kept coming. Always the sign of a good party! A big thank you to you Tania and all your ideas and help leading up to the wedding and on the day… You were brilliant and very patient with us… Still loving my gold cutlery!” Andrew and Brett Foreman

“Thank you so much for the most wonderful food at Amy and Riccardo’s wedding. The starters were quite outstanding. The actual meal was delicious, hot and beautifully presented. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. The BBQ the next day was perfect with the tastiest salads. A big thank you to Ben who always can be relied on to make events run smoothly.” Arnold Clark

“Thank you very much for orchestrating a fantastic event. Your challenges were many, a remote location and blocked roads. You rose to the occasion magnificently and the results were there for all to see. The letters of thanks that we have received all mention the food and the service. Your team were magnificent. Without you it might have been a good party but Ginger Snap made it great. So thanks to you and all your team – I entered my 51st year in style.” Charlie

“Thank you so much for looking after us so well at my retirement party last weekend. I have heard nothing but praise for the food and the service from everyone who attended – it was absolutely excellent.” Peter Dawson
“A belated note to thank you so much for providing the food and much more at our wedding. The quality of the meal was clear but the service and attention to detail really blew our guests and us away! We had a great day and thank you Ben for all the help and advice throughout the evening.” James and Rosanna

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding so perfect. Everything was awesome, people rave about your food.” Iz and Andrew
“Just wanted to write a little not of thanks for all you did for our wedding. You were ever the professional through everything – putting up with what we thought were last minute changes, until what happened on the day! We cannot thank you enough for all you did that day in rescuing our wedding day and making it as perfect as it was. The food, service, drinks and attitude of yourself and all your staff would not be faulted and we so so appreciate everything you did that day. Hope business continues well, and it would be our privilege to work with you again!” Annie and Dave 
“This is just to say thank you more than we can say for the perfect job you did for us all catering for the wedding – you were the calmest person on the planet and an utter pleasure to work with. Everything was perfect. All your staff were brilliant and I hope you did actually enjoy yourself too!” Kate and Mark
“I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for all your hard work and putting on the most delicious wedding breakfast. It really was so good and so many guests were amazed how you could cook beef so perfectly for 164 people. Ciff and I especially appreciated how well your staff took care of us, bringing champagne and canapes to us during the photographs. We were so pleased with how everything went and enjoyed every minute. Ben – you were an absolute hero and I think you may have found quite a fan in my mother! Anyway, thanks again and hope to see you soon. I’m definitely keen to come along to one of your supper clubs when I can.” Amy and Ciff

“We wanted to write to say thank you. You helped make our wedding day. You served the canapes so beautifully. So many people commented on it. Tom and I were also very touched by the fact that you brought us a small platter, while we were having our pics taken, in person. The dinner was superb! Your team really did do an incredible job. Despite the seating plan slightly changing last minute (one or two guests falling ill), nothing seamed to stop your perfect delivery. You were so patient with us and all of our demands! Really though, I want to say how much it meant to me to see my mum just let go and hand it all over. It really meant that she could enjoy herself 100%. That meant the world! Your company is very impressive. I will absolutely be recommending you to friends and anyone who asks. Hope to see you again soon before long.” Louisa and Tom

“Thank you so so much for making the wedding such a wonderful event. I can’t thank you enough, everything was absolutely fabulous, and as usual you dealt with all eventualities so efficiently. Lunch on Sunday was great too. All your staff were brilliant, I just don’t know how you do it!!” Susan Forsyth

“Just back from a couple of weeks rest post the wedding. I thought I would drop you a note to thank you and your staff for a superb service on the 22nd June. The whole catering side of things went superbly and the food was greatly appreciated by all the wedding guests. You are extremely lucky to have on board such quality and dedicated staff, and I think the shin of beef and lemon posset will go down in the annuals as amongst the best courses at a ‘wedding breakfast’. Thank you again and I wish you well in the future. (I still have another two girls!)” David Boyd

“Thank you and the whole team at Ginger Snap for sharing our big day and making the best wedding catering ever!” Mille and Cameron

“Thank you for doing such a fantastic job with the food and your fabulous Ginger Snap team. You were absolutely brilliant and I cannot thank you enough for all your help with it. All the food was totally delicious and all your staff were super. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more and loved every minute. Thank you so much again.” Ron and Jules

“Your reputation is well deserved!

Just a quick note to say thank you. Your staff made it a great evening for us. Caroline was excellent, personable, relaxed, efficient and charming. Your waitresses likewise. The food was delicious. The Irn Bru sorbet seems to have been a particular hit. I’m afraid there were some breakages but I hope far less than you have seen at other 21sts.
kind regards,

Stephen”

“Just to add to that I would also like to say a huge thank you! The meal was amazing and everyone has commented on how delicious it was. Caz was lovely too and the whole event went perfectly. Thanks again, Matilda”

“My turn…
Really impressed with the company, everyone was polite and everyone seemed to know whose party it was and what was going on, I was particuarly impressed that lots of the waitresses made the effort to say hello to us and introduce themselves. I will definitely be recommending ‘Ginger Snaps’ to any friends who ask for a catering company.
Thank you very much.
Matt
(oh and that ion bru sorbet was incredible…much nicer than the actual drink, you should consider selling that to the mass market)” Stephen, Matilda and Matt Hay

“The team at Ginger Snap did all the catering for our wedding. From the word go she could not have been more helpful.  She came up with fantastic ideas to suit our needs, and even devised a wonderful recipe to include some rather different ingredients we wished to include. The food was utterly delicious and the presentation impeccable.  The staff at Ginger Snap were professional throughout even though they know a number of guest at the wedding. Not only were the food and canapés without fault but the service provided throughout the night, and into the early hours of the morning was brilliant.  From beautifully presented sweetie jars to sausage rolls to keep the dancers happy in the early hours of the morning, nothing was too much.” Rose and Jake French
