"Thank you to Debs and the team at Choice Catering. I really cannot recommend you highly enough. The brunch i ordered for my 50th Birthday at Bristowe Hill (April '24) was outstanding and so delicious. You also made me a chocolate cake which was stunning, and created a cheese tower, a real talking point for my guests. You cooked everything to perfection, served and cleared away along with your lovely ladies that helped. You really did make my birthday special and will definitely use you again. ? "

"Debs and her team’s service was perfect for our hen party celebrations. On the Friday evening, we had three spectacular graze boards that catered for everyone’s requirements. The presentation was wonderful and the food was top quality. However, the highlight of our weekend was the delicious 5* quality three course deluxe meal that was prepped, cooked and served for us on the Saturday afternoon. The food was top restaurant quality and the friendly and accommodating service was wonderful. There were 16 people and there wasn’t a single complaint and everyone was full of praise. I’d highly recommend Debbie and her team for any celebration. A huge thank you from us. "

"I cant thank you and your team enough for the wonderful food and service you provided during our weeks stay at Bristowe Hill in Keswick. It is always a worry when you have arranged catering for a large group (18 people) that all will go to plan with timings, food ect but from the moment you arrived at the house you put my mind at rest and treated my guests to a wonderful buffet on arrival, a magnificent three course meal during the week and a sumptuous afternoon tea the day before we left. Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was from start to finish. The food was simply amazing and so much of it!!!I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your team and would love to use your fabulous services again hopefully in the not-too-distant future"

"Debs and her team were amazing from the first email to the sparkling kitchen at the end. We were staying at Bristowe Hill in Keswick in May '23 and they made the dining room look magical. The meal was beautifully cooked and tasted delicious. The ladies that served the meals were so efficient and friendly, all in all it was a meal we will never forget. Can’t give Debs and the ladies high enough praise. Thankyou. "

"Dear Debs Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the wonderful private dining dinner you catered for. It was such a lovely evening and our party, every course was just brilliant.

Thank you so much"

All of the guests commented on how beautiful they looked and how great they tasted! Debbie made the ordering so easy, it was a dream for a bride with a lot to do to have lots of confidence that the cakes were going to be perfect! I won’t go anywhere else if I ever need some again."

"We were the lucky recipients of these amazingly delicious items. Choice Catering’s careful attention to detail and knowledge of local foods made for an outstanding evening. The cheese tower was a thing of beauty and cheeses were beyond compare- the local Coverdale being the star of the show. The grazing boards were carefully curated and packed with flavour. The Celebration Cake and the Guinness Black Cake were gobbled up with relish! I would highly recommend Choice Catering to anyone visiting the Lake District. Five out of five stars! ❤️"

"We chose Debs and her team at Choice Catering to cater for a special birthday celebration meal for 19 members of our extended family whist we were staying at Bristowe Hill in Keswick. From the outset of planning the meal we were very impressed with her speed of response, range of menu choices and professional approach. On the evening of the meal her team arrived bang on time and proceeded to prepare the food and set up the dining room in an exceptionally efficient and organised manner. All the food was of superb quality and served by her very friendly, helpful and efficient team. She gave excellent value for money and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her. It was a truly memorable meal and evening."

- Jodie Dunlap

"Just a brief note to say WOW! We were blown away with the quality of food and the high level of service you provided at the weekend. I’ve rarely had better in a restaurant. To be able to do that in a remote environment must be really difficult. Once again, thank you so much, it was stunning""

- Bryan Miller

"What can we say Debs, "awesome, absolutely fantastic, amazing, Wow"! These were some of the comments we received from guests at Rachel’s 40th Birthday Celebration Buffet.

Many thanks indeed"

"Debs catered for our wedding in Greystoke and we were absolutely delighted with everything. From the initial planning and decision making, Debs was clear, professional and very helpful advising us where necessary. On our wedding day, the food, the service, the way it was served and presented was second to none. Delicious food, brilliant choices and not much left over! Our guests raved about it all! We would definitely use Debs again for another function and will highly recommend her to others. Thank you!"

- Phil & Shelagh

"Debs and her team prepared and served a 3 course meal and cake for our wedding, both the food and wedding cake tasted superb and presented beautifully. Plenty to eat in each course so very good value for money and way beyond expectation. Every little detail was thought of during the planning stage, things I had never even thought about. My family and I also got meals delivered to each of our homes during lockdown which were also exceptional and we are all disappointed that this is over now. So thank you very much Debs, we would certainly love to and hope to deal with you in the future!?"

"Debs did the catering for our wedding at New House Farm for 70 day guests and 110 evening guests in February. Right from the very first email the communication was great and she knew exactly what we wanted! We had sharing platters for our wedding breakfast which were perfect, just what I had envisioned. Delicious bacon and sausage sandwiches for our evening food. A range of yummy desserts for after! She also made our wedding cake which was just beautiful. All of our guests commented on how fab the food was. If you are thinking about contacting Debs, I highly recommend you do. The food is high quality and her prices very fair. If we are ever in need of a caterer for anything else, I won’t hesitate to hire her again. Thank you so much for helping make our day so special! "

"Last week, Deb and her team were wonderful preparing and serving food for my wedding. There were constant changes right up to the last week but Debs was always available for advise and made all the changes possible. The food was incredible and everything we wanted it to be. All the little touches that she thought of made our day even more special ?"

- Hannah & Luke Cassell

"Dear Debs Cakes to die for! I’m writing on behalf of all our Group to say that the cakes and tray-bakes you supplied for our summer outing at Threlkeld were just superb! The detailed menu was promising, but the reality exceeded our expectations. Such a wide variety, and every one delicious. We were able to select exactly what we wanted, delivered just when we could be there to receive it. The various special diet items were particuarly enjoyed, as the folk who need those sometimes have to settle for second-best (oh no it’s gluten-free brownies again!!!) - not this time! Thank you for going the extra mile. "

- Parkinsons Support Group

- Leah Lister

"In March this year we were delighted to be approached by Clarence House regarding a proposed visit to the area by HRH The Prince of Wales. The visit to Ullswater was to be a relaxing lunch featuring locally sourced ingredients and some quirky re-inventions of appropriate classics to celebrate the The Prince's 70th year. Debs was my first thought when we were invited to host such a prestigious event and I have to say that it was a spread fit for a King! Everyone was extremely impressed by the range of delicacies on offer and by Deb's imaginative and contemporary style of presentation. I am sure that The Prince very much enjoyed the time he spent with us on Lady of the Lake and the refreshments offered. We all hope that he will come and visit us again soon and, if he does, I will be giving Deb's a call to devise another menu to impress."

- Mark Horton General Manager, Ullswater Steamers

"Thank you Debs, for the wonderful 3 course deluxe meal you made our party of 16, last weekend. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Very high quality food, and great service from you.

Thanks again Debs, and hopefully we will be booking you again next year. "

"Debs had the tough task of creating a 3 course meal for 16 girls on my hen do last weekend... Some wanted certain dishes without certain ingredients! The food was delivered to us beautifully presented and all we had to do was heat it up with the instructions she left. What can I say the food was outstanding! Exactly what we needed after a long day at the spa ;) would definitely recommend using Debs again - food and prices were fantastic. Thanks again Debs!"

She was open to the numerous changes that we made and was more than willing to help. The food was exquisite and we would recommend the assiette of desserts that again Debs suggested in line with our vintage theme. The service was excellent and her staff very approachable, well presented and friendly. The personal touch that Debs provided both on our visits and through other contacts made the choice easy for us to use her for our special day."
