I just wanted to say a huge Thank You to you, Garrett and all your staff. You catered for our son Dean's Communion on 16th of April last. The food was AMAZING! As was your service.

Again a huge thank you. I could not fault a thing.

My other son's communion is next year and we will without doubt get you to cater for his.

Many thanks
