I just wanted to say a massive thank you for once again supplying an amazing team on Friday!  They were great and with Claire at the steering wheel I really couldn’t ask for more!


I think these Boundary Street store will become a regular thing so will of course let you know!


All the best,  

A very happy Camper

Camper Shoes


Please tell the staff how much I, and I’m sure everyone else, appreciated their professional but warm and friendly approach to the guests. It all went like clockwork - thanks to the team’s skill in making it seem so effortless, and yet obviously well organised.

I’m sure you acquired many more admirers last night.

St Christopher’s Hospice


Thank you much from the bottom of my heart!

You and your team were a dream to work with at our event and we could not ask for better suppliers (especially compared to our previous years event and the let down we had with them).

I've got a crazy day ahead of me so it's a very short note but trust me when I say, I'll be definitely get in touch with you guys in the summer for next years party...

Belmond (UK) Limited


I just wanted to drop you a line to say many thanks once again for your help with our Dover House reception. You always deliver a fantastic event for us and last week we asked even more of you to deliver a cocktail service too, and this was achieved at such last minute.

Please thank everyone in your team so much for averting disaster last week, we were all so impressed by the way you were able to help out with our drinks service.

Scotch Whisky Association


Thank you for looking after us so well again on Friday. I’ve had excellent feedback (I think the fact they ate like locusts is testament to how much they enjoyed the food) and Tim asked me to pass on his thanks for the excellent service.



The waiting staff were incredibly friendly and smiley which is exactly what we needed to greet our guests.

The staff were incredibly professional and the food was delicious.

The quote we had from you was on the higher side compared to others but the food and service was worth it. Everything was planned simply and effectively and the service on the night was brilliant.

We are highly likely to use you again, and will definitely recommend you to others.

Victoria & Albert Baths Ltd


I just don’t know how to begin to thank you for yesterday. Truly you and your entire team absolutely surpassed yourselves. The food you produced for our Spring Tea was quite simply a triumph on every front. For a start it looked so absolutely beautiful. Every single sandwich, cake, pastry and canapé was its own little masterpiece of beauty, to the extent that I saw several people turning them round and round and admiring them, and remarking on them, before finally tasting them. They were like little pieces of edible jewellery, each one a miniature seduction to the senses, and as the superb flavours exploded in people’s mouths their expressions were a joy to behold: startled delight, swiftly giving way to dreamy ecstasy! You and all the team should be incredibly proud of your great culinary artistry.

The service yesterday was also absolute perfection. I received repeated encomiums about your people’s kindness and helpfulness.

Sue, thank you so, so much once again for all the terrifically hard work that you and your whole team put in to yesterday. Again and again people asked me for details of who had produced the wonderful food and as usual I raved about Suzanne James Catering.

Museum of the Order of St John


I can tell you categorically that everyone was beyond satisfied with the way the after show party went, most especially the producers of ELF.

I have no hesitation in saying we made the right choice of caterer. Well done to everyone at Suzanne James, particularly Dan for his patience with us in the lead up to the night.


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thanks James and the team for all their efforts last night.

They were their usual professional selves, the food was great, as was the service.

They did a sterling job!!

Thank you for an excellent dinner and service.

Thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday night, we have had raving reviews about the food and the night as a whole.

ActionAid UK


I have the pleasure of seeing Graham and Claire every month at our breakfast meetings and it's always lovely. Nothing is too much and they are very professional and friendly. It's always lovely to see Suzanne too at our evening events, I never have to worry about anything as the team are just consistently prepared and ready to go. Thank you.

Cathedral Group

From reading your update emails I suspect that some of your customers do not realise just quite what services you offer and how it is very much the whole package. When using Suzanne James we are not hiring a caterer we are hiring a company that can provide more than just great food.

I have said it before and I say it again, Suzanne James is fantastic company. I have seen you grow over the years and still you deliver such personal, outstanding service. You have a great team and working with you feels like we are a part of the team - not just the client. Thank You for always over delivering in such a professional, enjoyable way.

Thames Water


Thank you for organising last's night event so well, the room looked beautiful and everything ran so smoothly. I (and others) thought they were the best canapés we'd ever had.   Also, the service was extremely professional and just right for the event. I would definitely use them again for future events.

Haberman Ilett LLP


Many thanks for all your efforts on Friday night – the event was a huge success.
We all had a fantastic evening, and the food was possibly the best we’ve ever had!!
Thank you to you and your team, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Filippo Berio UK Ltd


I just wanted to thank you and your team for working at our Freehold event last week. The event went really well and everything ran very smoothly and was stress free.

Your staff were extremely professional and friendly throughout the event, so please pass on my comments to them.

Royal Institute of British Architects


Thank you for the delicious food today – everyone was very impressed.

Hyder Consulting

Once again, a massive thank you for last Friday. It was our most successful prom yet and one that we definitely want to repeat! Everything about the whole evening was so well organised and high quality, it was great to leave it all in your hands! The way you and the staff hosted the students and helped them to be at ease was really touching - thank you.

We want to book for next year so please reserve Friday 11th July 2014.

Thanks a lot

Jane Fletcher
Principal, Harris Girls School


Just a quick note to say thank you so much for catering at our event last night at the London Canal Museum.  The food was delicious and service outstanding.  A special thank you to Jimmy for looking after us so well yet again.

Best wishes,

Downe House School

You, Graham and all the team always excel yourselves.   It is not often you
find a company that always over delivers and never fails to impress. From
a very personal and professional point of view I find it very reassuring
when using Suzanne James as I know I have nothing to worry about.

Kind Regards,

Thames Water Utilities Ltd


We were really pleased with how the evening went and felt that you and your team were a big part of making it run smoothly so thank you very much to you all for doing such a lovely job.

We will certainly consider you for future events.

The Churches Conservation Trust


What a treat that you put on for us on Tuesday! I know that you were reticent about my menu preferences, and also a bit reluctant at the end of the evening to submit yourself and all of your team to the well deserved recognition of a job superbly done.  The only decibel noise equivalent I have heard in the past was when West Ham won a home game 6 - 0, but that was a few decades ago!

We had a straw pole at the end of the evening as to who "tasted" the jellied eels. Universally, for those that had never ever tasted them before, nobody disliked, most were very pleasantly surprised and many came back for more.  There were a few unadventurous souls, but that was their loss - I doubt that you had any eel portions left in the dishes on clearing tables. The starters were spot on, particularly your take on the smoked trout, which for me vied for top spot alongside the rhubarb summer pudding (the pudding won - just).

Please pass on my personal thanks to all of your team, and as I said, if you need to refer any potential clients, don't hesitate to point them my way.

Smiths Metal


Thank you so much for all your help with the function - it really made it a special event. I know the food was raved about and most of us had to be dragged away from the mince pies – they were absolutely delicious!



Just to say that the feedback from yesterday’s lunch was ecstatic, they all said it was utterly delicious and the service was similarly excellent. Thank you so much!

Trustees Lunch, The Museum of the Order of St John


An enormous thank you on behalf of SFE for all your help with our reception on Tuesday evening. 

The canapés were excellent, in particular, the Roquefort cones – absolutely amazing – I can still taste them!!   As is always the case, the staff were polite, courteous and efficient. It was super seeing James again.

Suzanne, please convey our gratitude and appreciation to everyone involved for all their efforts. I do hope to be in touch again next year – it will be here before we realise it!

Meantime, may I wish you continued success.

Scottish Financial Enterprise


THANK YOU SO MUCH, for all your help with our party!

Your staff was excellent, attentive, quick, professional and super flexible!

Your manager, James, was so good! I felt so confident with all of your team and the best part , I was able to let go and enjoy.  The food was really good and plenty, as you said. We have registered attendance of around 150 -160 and really had plenty of food!

You were the best we could imagin, running the cloakroom and acting as a host for the venue, the party and the area: perfect. Thanks so much!!

I will of course think of you whenever we do any events that require external catering.

Best wishes,


Last night’s dinner was a triumph.   The food was incredibly delicious and was universally praised. The starter was succulent with perfectly balanced flavours and exactly the right size.   The generous portion of lamb positively melted in the mouth, and the pudding was a consummate balance between sweet, tart and creamy. 

The service was utterly professional: swift, courteous and efficient, with diligent attention to detail and unfailingly charming responses to all requests from the frazzled organisers, whose pre-event nerves were considerably calmed by the efficient and smiling demeanour of your team.   Their and your work was even more impressive in the context of last night’s unseasonal heat and humidity.

Thank you so, so much.   I am already recommending you in response to the majority of our client enquiries, but it goes without saying that after last night’s bravura performance my recommendations will be doubly enthusiastic.

Please pass my particular thanks to every one of your team.

With all best wishes
Museum of the Order of St John

A huge thank you to you all for once again being superb.  You never fail to please and your professionalism is exemplary.  It is always a treat to work with you, from that first Captain Cook Dinner on the Cutty Sark in 2005 you have always pulled out all the stops and never let me down.  It has been a wonderful few years and we have certainly been through a lot together.  Thank you for being you and for your amazing support.

The Cook Society


I am really pleased that we decided to go with you guys, I’ve had so many emails from people saying what a great do it was and how yummy the nibbles were.

I will most definitely be using you the next time we have an event, whenever that may be.

Nautical Petroleum plc


It was a huge success. You're team were excellent, as ever! so, THANK YOU!

Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft LLP


May I take this opportunity to thank you for the thorough, responsive and professional manner in which you handled my enquiry – it made life easier at my end.  Could you also pass on my thanks to your entire team on the night. Every one was well trained, extremely personable and highly attentive – they did a great job individually and collectively, and are a credit to themselves, and to your business.

We are planning to repeat the event again next year – I look forward to working with you then.

With best wishes

Mercy Corps European Headquarters


Thank you for once again being magnificent! I don’t know how you do it so consistently and in such difficult venues, but you do!

The food was superb (as always) and the service impeccable! So many comments on both from the guests, you really are the dream team!
