At Fresh Start Catering Services, we know that reputation is everything and our clients’ satisfaction always comes first – but don’t just take our word for it, take a look at some of the things those clients have said about us.

Jez and his family are amazing, always cater to all of our needs. Food is always incredible and delivered with a smile, whether it’s a lamb hot pot or a homemade cake it’s delicious. If you’re vegan or gluten-free don’t worry they will have you covered too. Would highly recommend fresh start catering to everyone!! – Jason Hayes

Maxine and her team made everything very simple to setup, a couple of last minute changes in numbers were accommodated easily.  Our guests we all very complimentary about the food with only crumbs being left for both the breakfast baps and buffet lunch.

Thanks Maxine and your team, we’ll be sure to contact you for our next event!

Thank you both for making our ‘after party’ such a great success. The aroma of the Hog Roast which greeted guests as they arrived at the venue lured them to take a quick peek as the Hog gently turned on the spit.

The day was glorious and went without a hitch. Jeremy and John  were very attentive to our needs and made sure every aspect of the meal was catered for. No one went hungry and some made more than one trip to the stand for more pork or the fantastic crackling.

Many thanks to Fresh Start Catering Services  for helping to make a special day a truly great day. We are so pleased friends gave us your name – we will likewise pass it on.

Thank you for a wonderful hog roast. The service provided by Stephane was excellent and my guests loved the food.

We managed to meet Jeremy and we were charmed by him.

As far as you are concerned, you have a very reassuring tone and it has been an absolute delight dealing with you.

All the best for the future.


We recently used Fresh Start to cater for two days at Epsom Races. After many years of trying to DIY, and trying other catering companies, we have now found a company that can give us the quality of food and service that we require, along with a happy friendly face.  We have already booked them for next year, and will continue to use their services for other events going forward, really first class.

We had a most successful seminar at St. Mark’s Church Hall in Reigate last Saturday.

The hall was ideal for our needs and I am sure we may use it again in the future.

The food and service provided by your company was first class and enjoyed by everybody attending – so thank you. Please could you pass on our special thanks to Nicki who was present there for most of the day. She was so pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for her.

If we do return to St. Mark’s Church Hall we will certainly contact you to provide the catering again.

Recently my brother and I had the very sad task of arranging our Mum’s funeral.

I contacted 2 or 3 catering companies for quotes.  When I spoke to Maxine directly on the phone (I decided then and there that I would be using Fresh Start)  She had a lovely manner and was quick to put me at my ease which I appreciated and assured me that everything would be done the way I requested.  The way she dealt with my requests was always with a “can-do” attitude.

We wanted an afternoon tea menu with sandwiches and cake etc.  The menu that she and Jeremy devised was absolutely perfect: Sandwiches, chicken goujons, sausage rolls and mini vol au vents with 2 types of cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam (home-made if I’m not mistaken).

Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and Maxine kept in touch regularly by text and phone to let us know how the arrangements were going.

On the day Jeremy arrived in his chef’s whites in plenty of time to set up, and when we arrived back from the funeral the buffet was laid out and Jeremy was waiting to make sure everyone had a cup of tea, coffee or glass of juice as soon as we came in.

The buffet was splendid all laid out on flats with proper covers on – not a piece of cling film in sight.  There were linen tablecloths and napkins and proper china, glassware and cutlery.

The attention to detail was second to none, as was Jeremys’ service.  He worked quietly and efficiently all afternoon ensuring everyone had everything they needed.  The dirty crockery etc. was cleared away almost without noticing.  Jeremy was very respectful and kind to both myself and my brother and indeed all the other mourners.

At the end of the afternoon everything was cleared away with the minimum fuss.

Everyone who attended said it was a most delicious buffet and they were all very complimentary on the quantity and quality of all the food and also the service.

We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Maxine and Jeremy to anyone.

Big hug and thank you for Saturday, as always with Fresh Start it went seamlessly
We have some of your catering equipment still here (sincere apologies but I’ve just taken a look at it and is hasn’t been washed) would you like me to put it through our dishwasher?

I wanted to take the time to write to you to express our sincere thanks for the excellent job you did catering for our 30th Wedding Anniversary.

From my very first enquiry right through to the party itself, you guys were simply brilliant! You will remember that, as I did with about 6 other catering companies, I left a voicemail message asking you to phone back regarding my event. Your response was rapid, and I know that you are very busy, but despite that I think you contacted me within a couple of hours, all the others, with the exception of one company, responded after a couple of days!. . .the remaining company has not responded to this day!

From that first conversation with you Maxine, I felt confident that you understood exactly what I wanted and then, when I met with you and Jeremy to go through the ‘fine detail’ I knew that I could leave it you to deliver!

And deliver you did, it was brilliant!..All our guests commented on the ‘excellent food’ and the ‘very nice staff’. “What a spread Steve, fantastic”. . .is what was said a lot!

You made it look seamless and simple. . .the mark of real professionals!. . .and what makes it eve better, you are a delight to work with.

I can’t thank you enough and you can be absolutely sure that when we need a top class catering company again, it will be you. . no doubt!

Very best wishes

Steve & Caroline Waller
