“Joey, Dan, Jen and all the rest of the team were incredibly accommodating. We asked for a lot of adjustments and last-minute changes to the menu. All of your staff were totally happy to take those things in their stride. Considering we were a group of over 100 people, not a single person complained of being hungry at any point across the week. Very happy clients!”.”

"Fantastic service from start to finish. As soon as I began conversations around the event, they helped with everything from suggesting menus that would work with my guests to timings to how they good serve everyone and prepare given the space. The event itself was seamless, in constant communication around timings and next courses and cleared up quickly once desserts had gone out to leave us to party the night away. Most of all the food was excellent!!!!.”

"Roamers just catered for my daughters 5th birthday party. there was plenty of food and choice for kids and lots of it so even the adults got a nibble too. good value and service 5*.”

"Thrilling from start to finish, top quality production with everyone delivering top class performances, something for the whole family, will leave you wanting more 5/5'

In all seriousness I was at a fundraiser for Kids Inspire hosted by Roamers and it was superb. Raffle, silent auction and casino were fantastic and I may be a little biased as I won a raffle prize!

The food was top quality with good portion sizes and each course delivered in appropriate time. It was just such a welcoming experience and raising money for charity that I left happy.

If you need caterers for an event, I would strongly recommend Roamers”

"I can not recommend Roamers Caterers highly enough! They hosted the Kids Inspire Charity Fund Raiser in March 2019 - what a fantastic night! The chef Dan’s food was absolutely show stopping, delicious and beautifully presented! The staff were friendly, polite and professional, a huge thank you to Manager Joey and Events Manager Jen -they really went the extra mile and made sure everyone was happy throughout the evening. Sarah and Genna were also brilliant. We had an excellent time and so much fun - the live entertainment, DJ, casino, raffle and auction were brilliant. A fantastic night - thank you Roamers Caterers!.”

"I used Roamers Caterers for my son Ace's 1st birthday party, firstly Genna who was our caterer for the day was on time, set up before hand and ensured we were happy with what was about to be served, personally I highly recommend Roamers, Jen our events manager was very helpful and accommodating, her professionalism speaks for itself, top class and ensured all was well through out the day, as for the customer service, now that is what makes Roamers stand out from the rest, as well as the good food lets not forget that, the service I received from both Jen and Joey was first class.

The food well where do I start, Fresh, Enjoyable, Tasty and just what we required, 90 % of our guests mentioned how nice the food was, that says it all and they even asked for details for their own upcoming events, I will use them again.

Finally I urge you looking for a good catering service look no further and use Roamers Caterers as it is Value for money, Professional, Helpful, Accommodating, Reliable, Trustworthy and most importantly they have lovely food.

9 stars from the Boateng's
