“Wild Garlic were professional, friendly and flexible and helped us come up with a wonderful and different catering idea for our wedding. We had total confidence from our first meeting with Tom, where we had a chance to taste some samples and choose the menu from locally sourced and excellent quality meat, fish and produce. On the day our canapes and meal were fresh, delicious and served brilliantly by the team, and our catering proved to be a definite talking point”

Chloe and Dan, London

“It was an excellent decision to choose Wild Garlic for our event catering at our daughter’s wedding. Not only was the food delicious, freshly prepared and well served but nothing was too much trouble for Tom and his team. We continue to receive many favourable comments from the guests. Thanks again for all your efforts”

Stuart, Kingston, Devon

“We were delighted with the way Tom organised our daughter’s wedding reception for 140 people in a marquee in the middle of a field. His planning and attention to detail left nothing to chance on the day. The reception ran smoothly with Tom co-ordinating the afternoon and evening in a relaxed but efficient manner”

Chris and Karen, Devon

“I can’t imagine we could have done what we did, and still managed to enjoy the day without your help and input. It was lovely to meet you and a pleasure working with you”

Scott and Katy, Bristol

“Our friends finding Tom Welch from ‘Wild Garlic’ was the jewel in the Crown of a great weeks holiday on the Flete Estate. As a long time ‘foody’ and also a Wine Merchant by trade I have been known at times to be somewhat critical of meals ! However the two dinners Tom prepared for eight of us were quite delightful (in a strange kitchen …a feat in itself!) . He has an elegant touch with food, simply and perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Add this to Tom’s charming and laid back approach makes you almost want to ask him to sit down and share the meal with you!”

Ian & Teresa Williams, Bedford

“When I saw you this evening I don’t think I actually thanked you for all your hard work on the 24th and also for delaying your holiday, so a big thank you for your organisation and delicious food. Hopefully that’s all weddings sorted but I’m sure there’ll be more parties at Ford Barn in the future when we shall need your expertise!”

Gina and Graham, Devon

“I was very sorry not to see you before you departed  on Saturday and to be able to thank you and your delightful helpers. .  I have had nothing but praise for the lovely food especially the canapés. Thank you for your part in making my birthday such a memorable occasion.”

Brenda, Devon

“Tom, just wanted to thank you and Carina again for all your help on Friday evening.  Can’t imagine what we’d have done without you – and all of our friends commented on how brilliant you were. Thanks so much.”

Jayne and Dave

“Tom Welch and his team at Wild Garlic are quite frankly the best caterers we have ever had. The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the smiles bright which all made our wonderful party one to remember.” We will definitely be back, we loved every minute of it…….. I just need to buy a lottery ticket.”

Sarah, London

“Tom was our chef during our two-week stay at Pamflete House in the summer of 2014. He fixed 8 meals for us, ranging from individual beef Wellingtons and a marvelous lamb and chicken BBQ to a simple spaghetti dinner. The food was excellent, and the service even more so. He was attentive to the needs of our group (ranging in age from 3-80+), and always eager to be sure that he had taken the various food needs (gluten-free, lactose intolerant, Kosher) into account. He came over periodically to freshen our cheese tray. I recommend him without hesitation.”

Rosemary, USA

“Having been holidaying on the Flete Estate for 30 years, the decision this year to ask Tom to cook for us made it by far and away the best of the 30. The menu was sensational, Tom was hugely flexible with the rabble that descended on the house in varying numbers and was an absolute pleasure to have around. I cannot recommend Wild Garlic or Tom enough.” I will be in touch about next year once I have herded the cats and got people organised. Thanks again for everything – you really helped make the week great.”
