Hello Hammonds Team!

Finally I have the chance to send a view words to you regarding the opening days ago.


Everything was perfect! From the first kick off meeting with John until the last beer on the bar

I got a lot compliments of the food during the evening and would like to know you that.

Further your staff was very high professional in service and friendly!

I hope we can hire Hammonds again soon. Hopefully we`ll open another plant soon

Until this will happen, I would like to wish everyone of Hammonds all the best, continue this excellent performance and take care!

Carol O'Donohue, Agilent
Church Stretton, June 2022

Hello Sally,

Just a short note to say thank you for the catering you did for us on Saturday.

The food was excellent so we were very pleased.

The two staff complete with food arrived slightly early so that was good and they set up very quickly.

It was possible that they could have been a little apprehensive when we started to mix up the food with our Swedish food but there was no problem at all.

They all got on very well and were always on top of their work, very professional and efficient and were always looking at what needed to be done. That of course is never easy because of the quiet spells and storms with catering during the night.

They had a very friendly disposition which helps no end, in short they were good ambassadors for your company.

Please pass on our thanks to your colleagues.

Kind regards,



Brian Churm

 It was lovely thank you, everyone enjoyed the food & all but a few sandwiches that were left it all went, we gave the rest to the lads in the bar so they appreciated it. Definitely will be using you again, and thank you for putting all the food out it looked lovely.

Dear Ann-Marie

If you recall you supplied the catering for the wake of my late father at The Anstice on Tuesday 3rd January.

This is just a short line to thank you for your service before, during and afterwards, which was all excellent.  Furthermore, the food was both glorious and plentiful.  Thank you also to the young lady who served us on the day who was first class (apologies but I have forgotten her name).

Keep up the good work.

Hammonds catering have adapted incredibly to the restirictions of Covid-19 and catering for the workplace, the quality is outstanding and the variety on offer mean that all of my staff can be catered for. Their freshly made cakes are something to talk about and give the working lunch bags something extra special, I would absolutely recommend them to other organisations who want to look after the safety of their staff and offer a delicious lunch.

Can't fault this company at all. We were let down by another caterer and was recommended Sally at Hammonds. From the start she was helpful, informative and communicated really well. They set up on the barn the day before. Then on the day they provided very tasty Canapés, with a good choice to choose from and were an absolute hit with everyone. The evening food was amazing too and everyone's plates were full to the brim and even had 2nd helpings. We even managed, as bride and groom to get some food too. Staff were professional and lovely. Cannot recommend them enough and will certainly use them again if needed. Thank to all

Please thank all the staff involved in our corporate launch event in Telford on Thursday 17th May.

Jackie and I received many compliments on the subtle, efficient and professional manner of your staff; from our first meeting with you - to the bar staff, waitressing staff and servers alike. No query was too much, no suggestion unmanaged and the full service offered by Hammonds made the organisation of details so much easier for us.

The event seems to have been a great success – I certainly haven’t heard anything to the contrary.  Our Group board members had a memorable evening and gave us positive feedback on the event overall.

I believe you already know that we will certainly be using your services again and we look forward to another occasion to arrange with you!

I went off on a holiday to Florence after the event but wanted to record our thanks for the wonderful service you provided for our 50th anniversary party.

Well done.

Good morning Anne Marie,

Thank you thank you thank you for last night.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the whole team involved in providing the catering to my Mum's 90th Birthday party on Saturday. 

 The food was fantastic,  the quantity was so generous that all my guests took a generous doggy bag away with them ! Also the delivery arrived in perfect time and the collection was just as smooth! 

I had so many other things to do in order to make the day as special as possible and knowing that you were dealing with the food really took the pressure off me from start to finish.

Thank you all so much. If I'm ever mad enough to do this again I will definitely be calling you straight away !

Carl Bould

Hi Sally, John, Karen & "Team Hammond's"

Might I just take a moment to thank all at Hammond's for the professionalism, patience and care they showed us whilst organising the Festival, the generosity of spirit of all that supported us on Saturday, and also the quality of the food was first class.

I am delighted to pass on to you all of the gratitude from our hearty, hungry guests, who commented they never before had received such a welcome, quality of service, or been treated to such a delicious range of food. Both they and ourselves were truly grateful.

It proved to be a really successful day, if not one of the most humbling considering the amazing company of children we were keeping, and even the sun chose to shine for us?

Also, I must thank John for patiently re- supplying the gluten free rolls ( the originals having disappeared amongst a throng of eager sorters), and delivering them personally with a smile that need not have been easily found.

Most sincere regards,



Jane Dobbs

I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff who came to cater for my dads 60th birthday party in Broseley last night. The food was great quality and went down brilliantly with the guests. The staff were extremely pleasant and professional and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you to you all!!


Rachel Dixon
Broseley, June 2018

Hi Ann-Marie,

We had a wonderful day, all the staff - catering and bar – were friendly and helpful. They worked very hard but always with a smile on their faces. The gentleman working at the bar made sure the groom always had an ale in hand (which he needed for courage when it came to the speeches and first dance), I thought that was a really nice touch. The food was lovely too, I especially enjoyed the lovely salads.

Thanks again for everything.

Best wishes,

I would highly recommend both the barbecue and the mobile bar. The food was excellent and catered for different needs such as vegetarian and gluten free without any problems. The bar was really well stocked with reasonable prices - so glad we had it. The staff were really friendly and hard working. They arrived early, set up independently and packed away again at the end with absolutely no hassle for us - even when there was a huge thunderstorm! Hammonds were also a pleasure to deal with during the organisation beforehand - prompt. professional and thorough. We had a brilliant night!


Best wishes

Karen in particular had everything working smoothly and accommodated our delayed timings with no stress, she was a joy to have there and facilitated everything we needed.

With kind regards.


Rebecca Coope, EDP
Shrewsbury, May 2017

Karen and your/her staff were just amazing, their ‘amazingness’ was only beaten by the quality of the food you provided. We have had a vast number of people comment on the food and nobody complained, there was something for everyone, the sweet potato salad was a huge hit. My bride and I just thought it was perfect.

 The evening trio of meats was basically devoured and, again, everybody loved it. I went looking for some but it was all gone lol.

 Can you please pass on our gratitude to Karen and the team for such a wonderful service, especially the lovely young lady who with one jokey comment had the best man tripping over boxes whilst carrying bouquets in for the thank you gifts, it was so funny.

 I hope I don’t need your wedding barbecue service again but I do hope that I can be at a wedding where you do the catering and for other parties I plan I will be requesting your services.

Hi Sally

On behalf of Dr Askari, myself and the Orthopaedic  Institute Charity may I offer a “massive thank you” to you and all your team for supporting us prior to and on Saturday evening.

Karen and all the staff on the night were very professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside them.  It was a small venue and an even smaller budget however I don’t think the night  could have gone any better for Dr Askari and our fund raising efforts.

The whole event  was really enjoyable.  Most importantly, we raised money for the Charity and our guests had a wonderful evening.

Thank you all once again.

With kind regards

Thank you for the fantastic service you provided for my 40th birthday.  From the initial enquiry, to further communications / contract signing, to the food tasting to the delivery of food on the day of the event, the whole process ran smoothly, professionally and my expectations were exceeded.

The food was delivered on time, clearly separated into meat / fish / veg sections and the quality was fantastic.  Every person who attended said how delicious the food was (and the chocolate cake in particular is still being talked about!).  A huge choice of items and everything was fresh and well presented.

Thank you, Hammonds, for an incredible service.  I’ll recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for caterers in the West Midlands.

We recently got married at the family barn on a working farm. We had no running water and this was obviously quite an unusual location which could have potentially had it's issues. However this proved to be no problem for Hammonds who provided a ploughmans's lunch for the day guests, a hog roasts for the evening and a bar all day! Everyone loved the food and you hardly noticed the staff running around sorting everything out and filling up drinks. The bar was amazingly well stocked and the staff were very friendly. Overall Hammonds were expremely helpful and helped to make our wedding day extra special. Thank you Hammonds

Dear Sally

Just a quick email to say how impressed I was with the catering for George's christening yesterday. Ann-Marie dealt with everything so well and ensured the day went smoothly. Both the food and service was nothing short of excellent; thank you so much.

Hi Sally, On behalf of Gunnebo I would like to extend our thanks to Hammonds for their professionalism and service. Sharon and Penny did a fantastic job on-site staffing our event, they were friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The food was of excellent quality and enjoyed by everyone.

Louise Harper
Gunnebo UK Ltd - Wolverhampton, Dec 2014

We found Hammonds by searching wedding BBQs on the Internet, it's always nerve wrecking booking something like a BBQ because you don't always get to try the food prior to the wedding like you do with a hotel. From day one Hammonds were very helpful answering all questions and making us feel very confident they had complete control and knew exactly what we wanted on the day!

On the lead up to the wedding they were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself the staff were amazing, working in restaurants all my life I know the sign of good staff is when you don't really notice them doing their job because it's seamless and that's how the day was! Food was served promptly and tasted amazing, plates and glasses were constantly cleared and everyone complimented on how smoothly it all ran.

Sally, John, Karen and Darren were a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend Hammonds to anyone looking to book for a wedding or any other event.

To Karen and the catering staff at Hammonds

Thank you so much for doing such a perfect job of catering for our wedding.

Karen, you were so helpful in planning our special day - we wouldn't have known where to stat without you! It was obvious you had our best interests at heart as you gave us advice, and you tailored to catering plan perfectly to our needs.

We had such a wonderful day - the food was delicious and you were all so lovely and helpful!

Many thanks and best wishes

Dear Sally,

Just a couple of things. Firstly, what an outstanding job Darren and Ann-Marie did on Sunday. They were so professional and friendly. Everybody commented on how good the food and service was.

Matt Sandford
Shrewsbury, August 21

Hi Ann-Marie

I was going to email Sally later and ask her to pass on a huge thank you to all you guys that came Saturday night.

It was absolutely fantastic! Everyone commented on how nice the food was, how lovely the ladies serving were and what a nice change it was to have hot food instead of curly sandwiches!

From our point of view it was refreshing to not have to worry about setting up, serving or clearing down any food. The piece of mind was priceless. I'll certainly be recommending your services and I know many of my work colleagues took your business cards.

(and it was all done without tripping  any electrics 😀 which as you know was a concern from the venue)

Really can't thank you and Sally enough. From planning menus, communication, overcoming obstacles and the food, all fantastic!! and very much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Hi Sally, Sorry it's taken me an eternity to email you. I wanted to thank you and all your staff for the great job they did at our wedding! The canapes were sublime, everyone commented, it wasn't just the taste but the way they were displayed in the marquee, it was beautiful. And then there was the BBQ, people raved about the meats, salads and don't get me started on the bread ... it was a massive success! Thank you all so much for making my vision a reality!!

The party went really well thank you and we were really happy with the food. It went down really well and we were pleased that we had picked your company.



Telford, April 2022

Hi Ann-Marie,

Just to let you know the buffet was excellent, food quality just as great and the portions very generous. I think we got the amount correct this time and although we had plenty to eat we didn’t have too much left over!

Knowing that you had the food sorted for my parents special 70th wedding anniversary really took the pressure off us on the day.

Thanks again

RAF Shawbury Officers’ Mess Committee would like to thank Hammonds for the great service provided for our summer ball, catering for over 550 guests. Leading up to the event, the team could not have been more helpful and worked hard to tie in with our theme. On the evening their professional staff were full of enthusiasm and really added to the atmosphere of our event and the food, of course, was great!

Yes thank you, we had a wonderful day.

We were thrilled to bits with your catering service. Right from the word go, Sally was brilliantly organized, clearly very experienced and was hugely reassuring about how everything would run on the day. We were never in any doubt that we had chosen the right caterer for us. The package was perfectly adapted to our wishes and budget and included everything which we did/didn’t want to include. There were also a great range of dishes to choose from even though we wanted a purely vegetarian menu.

On the weekend of the event, staff were polite, friendly and well organized. The food was delicious and of a really high quality. Staff left the venue perfectly tidy and with lots of left overs for us to share with family and friends on the coming days. We really can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day really special.

Evening Ann-Marie,

We had a lovely weekend, hope you did too.

Maire Green
Shrewsbury, May 2016

Hi Ann-Marie,

I wanted to start by saying thank you for you and your teams support in the recent celebration we at Kuehne-Nagel Donnington held last week. Your part over the 3 days was instrumental in its success and the feedback we have received from members of our staff are invaluable to our focus and current journey we are on. Your teams interaction with the staff and sense that nothing was too much trouble within the confines of the agreement was second to none, this included the daily adjustments made to accommodate short falls and gains in staff attendance and making sure there was enough food and drink to support.

It was great to see the harmony and cohesion the Hammonds team had in both setting the stands and food plate up, the professionalism and as important the quality of the food presented.

Please pass on our thanks to your whole team aware that there are always hidden help in any business and we look forward to our next celebrations and as discussed maybe include Hammonds in any early meetings to expand and get the best out of Hammonds and the wider options your team has.

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend thank you! The feedback we’ve had has been all good-for ourselves, the quality of the food, amount, temperature, staff and fuss free set up and service was fantastic! Nothing left at all bar a bit of stuffing! They decided due to the weather that they didn’t need to use the cover/marquee either.

Can’t thank you enough for everything. I have recommended you to friends in Newport.

Thank you to Ann-Marie from Hammonds who I have dealt with since before lockdown to organise the food for my husband’s birthday. It finally took place due to COVID on 13th May 2023. Eric turned 60 on 15 February 2020, so we celebrated a little late!

Dawn and Farrah brought everything into the house and set up. They were professional, super friendly and helpful. They cleared away and popped all of the extra items into containers which we supplied. The meat and sides were so tasty, great comments from all. Some had three baps. There was so much food. We will be eating pork and beef for a few weeks!!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Hammonds for your event!

Thank you, Ann-Marie 😊

Thank you so much for all your help and assistance in the lead up to our big day and can you pass on our heartfelt thanks to all the staff that were in attendance too. They were a credit to the firm, always had smiles on their faces and were never afraid to help sort out any problems that any of our guests may have had. The drinks service was first class, as was the food and we have nothing but praise regarding it since from our friends and family. Could you please pass on our thanks to Darren for operating the bar, along with his staff too. Once again, thank you so much for everything. We knew from day one we had made the correct choice in terms of caterers and Friday certainly proved it 🙂 Best Wishes

We will obviously send a formal thank you soon and when we're back from honeymoon i'll be writing google reviews etc (and will copy and paste to any platform should you need it).

Hi Ann-Marie, Can you please pass on our compliments for the buffet you provided on Friday evening. The food was wonderful and plentiful, just the thing after a couple of hours of hard competing in our school sports day event. Our vegan was really pleased with her food as well - said it was much better than the normal lettuce sandwich she gets! Thanks again

Toni Keever
Shrewsbury, May 2015


Hi Anne-Marie,

We would both like to thank you, Darren and the rest of the team for such great work at the wedding. The service was absolutely superb with people commenting on how friendly and professional the catering team were. The amazing day that we both had would not have been possible without all the hard work of you and your team. We can not thank you enough…and I haven’t even started talking about the food yet!! All of the food was AMAZING and enjoyed by all of the guests, our only regret is that we couldn’t eat more of the canapes & BBQ due to nerves about speeches, too many guests to talk to and a dress that would have been unforgiving after a large meal, haha!! But we did go nuts for the hog roast later in the evening, which sustained us through to the early hours!

If we were planning the day again we would have no hesitation to use Hammonds catering, but as neither of us is planning on getting married again, even after nearly two weeks of being Mr & Mrs, I will be recommending your services to everyone.

Please forward our thanks to all that were part of the day!


Caroline Alderton
Burlton, July 2015

Dear Sally

Just wanted to come back to you after we had our garden party on Sunday.

We were totally delighted with the excellent service we received and can’t thank you enough.

Darren and Annemarie were  superb, both so professional and efficient and obviously really enjoy what they do.

Nothing was too much trouble they worked efficiently and attention to detail was excellent.

They are both extremely engaging with first class inter personal skills and a total delight to have here.

The whole event ran so smoothly and was perfect in every way thanks to their organisational skills.

The presentation of the food and quality were second to none and such wonderful choices.

Unfortunately it did rain however, your amazing gazebo was worth its weight in gold and looked tremendous and enabled us to host the whole event outside which was super.

As you know the party was a last minute decision and for you guys to be able to turn it around like you did was outstanding.

We are very grateful to you for all your help and assistance and look forward to using you for our next event.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to the whole team including people  who helped with the preparation behind the scenes.

THANK YOU so much and look forward to next time.

Best wishes

Hi Ann-Marie,

We had an amazing time thank you!

Your team were excellent, we couldn't have asked for better. Their efficiency was amazing yet we didn't feel hurried in any way. The meat was cooked to perfection...apparently, I'm veggie! The numbers were just about right as the left overs disappeared before the evening finished, phew!

Please extend our thanks to the whole team and especially Karen who really seems like a friend to the Johnson/ Jones households! Also to Sally who really organises me so well.

Till the next time!

Many, many thanks,

We wanted to say the biggest thank you for our fantastic wedding food and service on Saturday. We had the best day we could have imagined from start to finish and so many guests complimented us on the food. It was so abundant and delicious, and thank you even more for leaving us all the leftovers - we had our families together for a party on Sunday afternoon and hoovered them up!

Truly we couldn’t have asked for better caterers and will be recommending you to everyone. In particular thank you to Karen for being so fabulous and looking after us all so well - she is a credit to you and everyone fell in love with her! We felt completely relaxed and confident everything was in great hands. She is a superstar. Please pass on our sincerest thanks.

So sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We have only just returned from honeymoon in Italy where we had a fantastic time.

We just wanted to say how pleased we were with your catering services from the food to the bar. The food was absolutely first rate and very high quality. I have never known such polite, attentive staff and there have been many comments to that effect. Nothing was too much trouble for you and your team and the day and evening went just perfectly. Everyone has commented on the quality of the food both for the daytime and the evening and how organised your service was.

We really appreciated the personal touch you gave and this goes for Darren and his bar services also. Your team are a credit to you. I know the day was a long one for you all but we do hope you enjoyed it also.

We hope to have more parties in the future and will call on your services again....We've no doubt!

With very best wishes and many, many thanks....!

Thank you for all your help!

The food was brilliant, i was asked if it came from an authentic Indian in Birmingham, they could not believe the curries were cooked by an English company in Horsehay. So well done to you and your staff - we will not be going anywhere else in the future

Hello Ann, We were really impressed by Hammond's. The food was great, it all went smoothly, the staff were helpful and friendly and it felt very tailored to our day. We would 100% recommend you to anyone else. Cheers

The food was delicious and so much of it!! The staff are a credit to the company and were a joy, so friendly and accommodating. I did tell them how much we appreciated their work but if you could also pass it on, that would be great. We wouldn’t look any further for a catering company as you are the absolute best. Smashed it. Everybody said the same.

Hi Ann-Marie,

All good here, Saturday was fabulous thanks.

We had so many comments, not just about the quality of the food but how professional Karen and Emmie are, they also looked really smart.

What a great experience, to hand over the kitchen and not have to worry about anything other than enjoying the afternoon.

Once again, thanks to you, Karen and Emmie for your help in making it a very memorable occasion.

Hi Sally

I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of the PTA and all of our guests at our fundraising ball last night.

Every single part of the process of dealing with Hammonds has been a pleasure and has been made so simple by your whole team.

The organisation of the ball got fairly stressful at times, but you really did go out of your way to be flexible and support us along the way.

Karen and her team were absolutely lovely to work with during setup the day before and on the evening. They were punctual, professional, helpful and efficient. After such a good experience during the planning stages with Hammonds, I was willing the food to be fabulous too so that I could wholeheartedly recommend you and it did not disappoint! The food was fantastic and portion sizes were very generous. Everybody went home very full and very happy.

The catering is such a huge part of an event, all I can say is just a huge thank you for absolutely everything.

We had a wonderful day thank you, so much so, I totally missed the cakes and the BBQ!!  Too busy on the dance floor. However, everyone said how lovely all of the food was. I only really met Darren, who was really helpful and accommodating.

Thank you to you and especially Sally who I must’ve emailed way too many times over the last two years of rearranging, changing menus and asking questions. It’s all been really appreciated.

Dear Hammonds

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service given to us this weekend for my husband's 70th birthday party.

From the initial phone call to the pick-up of the empties this morning everything has been efficient. Phone calls were always followed up immediately by e-mails and the food itself arrived on time and beautifully set out. Everyone I have dealt with has been courteous and helpful.

Most importantly, the food was excellent and everyone who came was complimentary, Many people asked who had done the catering. The little touches, such as providing a jug for the milk were much appreciated.

Organising a party is more stressful than I had imagined but having the catering done so well made it as easy as possible for me. Should I ever be mad enough to organise another large party I shall certainly call on your services.

Yours sincerely

We would just like to thank Ann-Marie and the guys at Hammonds Catering for a fantastic BBQ which we held in our office garden. They arrived on time, set up very quickly with no fuss and the food was delicious and plenty of it. They very kindly left the extra food in foil dishes so we could enjoy it the next day so nothing went to waste. They packed up without us even noticing and left the garden clean and tidy. Would highly recommend them and I’m sure we will be using this fabulous service again.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Anne-Marie was great at helping organise everything. The staff who ran the BBQ were also helpful and couldn't do enough for us! Would recommend 100% and will definitely be using Hammonds again!

Hi Ann-Marie/Sally

Both Pete and I have to say it was the best, most professional catering service we have ever had!

Thank you so much to you and all of your team. Please pass our thanks onto all your staff! All of our wedding guests thoroughly enjoyed the food and we hear you will be getting many more bookings from our family and friends in the near and long term future.

You were all amazing and the food was delicious!

Thank you once again
