"Ashley catered for a surprise birthday celebration for me in and I chose a canape menu which surpassed expectation, followed by a VIP BBQ. Both food and service were excellent from start to finish, and we would not hesitate in recommending him to friends and colleagues.”

"Ashley and his team have carried out various functions for myself and Caroline, spanning 4 years or so….. His service is always seamless, from creating a suitable menu for us, right through to a discreet clear-down at the end of the function. He has obvious passion and commitment in what he does, and this has shown on every occasion in the quality and presentation of his food."

"For our Championship Show at the Kennel Club Building in Stoneleigh we wanted caterers who were going to sort everything with the minimum of fuss and direction, leaving us to worry about running the show. AJ Catering were fantastic, providing a great range of reasonably priced food all day and then hosting our judges' dinner at the end of the day. We had happy, well-fed exhibitors; we didn't have to worry about anything and they were a pleasure to do business with. I cannot recommend them highly enough..."
"We used Ashley for the catering for our daughter's Christening. Having chosen from an extensive range of menus and prices, we decided to collect it from him and display and serve it ourselves. Everything was taken care of - "igloos", plates, serving platters and cutlery - and the food looked stunning. It also tasted delicious and it was a massive weight off our minds to have it all sorted out so well. I have recommended Ashley to several people since and would not hesitate to use him again for another event of our own."

"I think I can speak for not just the committee but the exibitors also, in saying thank you so much for all your hard work over the weekend [Siberian Husky Championship Show Weekend]. I was so glad we went with yourselves for the catering; wish we had used you previously and without a doubt will be asking you again. Both of you were very friendly and great to work with; food was great, service was excellent. Would definitely recommend you to others...."

“Selecting a caterer for my first Single Breed Champ Show was a little daunting, however, one of the reasons for choosing AJ Catering was due to it being run by a couple, who are not only dog owners but also breeders and exhibitors. It soon became apparent that I had made an excellent choice, as exhibitors themselves Ashley and Debbie were appreciative of our requirements and provided a great service from early morning to late afternoon. They were very flexible and easily managed to cope with my requests for extra meals at short notice. The quality of the service and food was very good and all at reasonable prices and I would happily recommend them to
other club and societies”

"Ashley Huggins, AJ Catering, caterered for the Midland Golden Retriever Club’s Championship Show in December 2010 held at the KC Building, Stoneleigh Park. We were very pleased with the service we received from, Ashley, Debbi & their team. There was hot food & drinks awaiting our Committee & Exhibitors on arrival on one of the coldest days in December. There was a good menu for the exhibitors, at a fair price. A very good lunch was provided for our Judges,
Officials & Guests - many thanks."
"A J Catering not only provided great food (both in taste and amount!) but the service and organisation matched it as well both on the day and in advance. It allowed us to enjoy day without worrying about the catering at all."

On behalf of the Home Counties Cocker Spaniel Club, a huge thanks for the excellent catering service that you provided for our Championship show. I know that the Officials and Committee thoroughly enjoyed the special lunch that you laid on for us. The exhibitors also expressed how refreshing it was to see good quality, home-cooked food, at competitive prices, served by friendly folk. We hope to use you again for our next show.
Many thanks once again. Jonathan (Daltrey)Hon Sec
"AJ Catering provided catering for our daughter's christening. We had a relatively large number of family and friends attending and just wanted to spend time with them rather than having to worry about preparing the food and ensuring our guests had enough to eat and drink. The service we got from AJ Catering was totally seamless (from setting up to clearing up afterwards) and made our day so much more stress-free and enjoyable. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent in every respect.
We'd highly recommend them."
I hope today has gone well for you at Stoneleigh. I received a number of compliments, from both exhibitors and Committee, on the food you served yesterday. Well done and many thanks … speaking as Show Manager, my life is made much easier when I’m dealing with professional caterers like yourselves. Please accept this e-mail as a firm booking for next year’s Championship Show, again at Stoneleigh, on: Saturday 10th October 2015.
Kind regards to Debbi and yourself"
