All we can say is wow. The food, service and dealings with Eddy, Emma and the team were superb. Eddie is an expert and the attention to detail plus creativity were first class. An absolute pleasure, our guests loved the food and it really helped to make our day.
Ross & Anna, wedding, November 2015, Lyde Arundel, Hereford
I honestly can't have asked for a better wedding caterer - all the food was superb (and that was catering for nearly 125 people!), and the service exceptional. One waitress in particular made sure I always had a canapé and glass of bubbly nearby! To my knowledge, everything ran seamlessly, but even if it didn't, I don't imagine we would have known given the extraordinarily level of professionalism. We also didn't need to do any tidying up - they really thought of everything to ensure we had a wonderful day!! I can't recommend Rococo highly enough - thank you again
Lauara & Malcolm, wedding, June 2015, Homme House, Hereford
Fantastic service and food! From the first meeting Eddie & Emma put us at ease and we knew the food was something we didn't need to worry about. Guests complimented the food all evening and it helped make our day special! Thanks Rococo! x
Chris & Vicky, wedding, July 2015 Staunton on Wye, Herefordshire
"Everything was lovely, from the presentation of the canapés to the gorgeous sharing platters. Your staff exceeded my already high expectations and I honestly forgot they were there at times, a seamless production! Thanks again for all, and a big thank you to Eddie and Emily and everyone else on site. I'll share any professional pics of food our photographer took when available! Best, Erica "
Erica & Brian (USA) wedding, September 2015, Felin Newydd House, Llyswen
I don't think you'd find a better reference. Every Wedding we've been to since within the same group of friends, everyone has always commented that the food wasn't as good as at our Wedding!!!
Aaron & Louise, wedding, July 2012, Pembrokeshire
We had a truly perfect wedding, we were so happy with everything. Your catering was fantastic - the food was delicious and went down extremely well with our guests ( I don't think a single thing was left, everyone obviously has a very good appetite!!). The waiting staff were wonderful too. Friendly, caring towards Mark and I and nothing was to much effort for them. We particularly appreciated them bringing a 'picnic' down to us late evening when we were in the gazebo having a private 10 minutes to catch our breath and reflex on our super special day.
We would definitely recommend you to others.
Mark & Rachel, wedding, September 2013, Byford, Herefordshire.
The food was amazing! Everyone really enjoyed the food and the service was lovely.
Amrita, hen party, Herefordshire, May 2014
We were lucky to have Eddie and his amazing team to cater our wedding in April. It was absolutely stunning. Dealing with Eddie - and Emma - was a pleasure from start to finish and I quite miss being in contact with them now (tho i am sure they don't miss me!). The food was immense. We had a Cheshire/Herefordshire fusion with an asparagus twist(!) and they compiled the perfect menu - and executed it brilliantly. My now husband and I couldn't decide between the Lamb and Sausages so we had one each and shared! The canapes - fish and chips, steak on a chip, chicken and mushroom pies and spring rolls (all mini!) were so good we asked a poor waitress to come and find us with them as we had our photos taken away from the guests! And the puddings were stunning too - again we found it hard to choose after we had a tasting.
Feedback from our guests has been full of praise and some of their piccies features pictures of the food! They put on a super spread for the buffet too and complemented our savoury cheesecake. When you book Rococo you get excellence from the first phone call to when the team leave. Everyone was helpful and made our day special. Thanks Ed and Emma - it was fun! xxxxxx
Anne-Marie & Paul, wedding, Worcestershire, April 2014
Dear Emma and Eddie
Just a quick email to say how delighted we were with the catering at the wedding last Saturday - the food was delicious and the service first rate. You have a great team working for you and they were both professional and friendly. So many people commented on both food and service and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to others...
Once again, very many thanks for helping to make the day such a great success.
Pamela & Philip (parents of Victoria - bride) & Ross’s wedding, Spetchley Park Gardens, September 2012
I would like to thank you for catering at my wife's birthday party. The food was superb, the organisation faultless and the waiters were very professional. Perhaps you could pass our compliments on to them! The whole event was most enjoyable. I will certainly recommend you to my friends.
Bob, wife’s 70th birthday party, Whitney on Wye, March 2014
Dear all your team....
Thank you so much for making our day run so smoothly. Harriet was absolutely amazing and her organisation was outstanding. Your team were so supportive and friendly.... Made the whole day feel so relaxed!! The food was also very very tasty and everyone loved it!!!!
Thank you again.
Briony and dave :)
Briony & Dave, wedding, Herefordshire, August 2013.
Neil and I were very pleased with the service provided by Rococo, from our first contact to make enquries to the Big Day itself. Emma and Eddie were incredibly helpful, flexible and professional throughout the process and worked ceaselessly to help me with crafting and fine-tuning a menu which offered my large guestlist the variety of choice I was after without compromising on the quality of the food and within our budget.
The majority of our planning with Rococo was done via email as we are London-based and it was the most convenient during the working day. We were very impressed with their timely response to all of our various questions and requests for menu ideas and alternatives.
We also very much appreciated Rococo's willingness to integrate additional menu dishes prepared by my Ghanaian family into the buffet menu and the seamless way the two sources of food where presented, especially as this request was somewhat sprung on them rather late in the process.
On the day, the Rococo staff worked seamlessly with the team at Lyde Arundel to ensure that everything run like clockwork. Of the many things brides fret about on their wedding day, I'm pleased I was confidently able to strike the food off the list knowing that the Rococo and Lyde teams firmly had things under control.
We and our guests could not have been happy with the presentation and taste of the food or the service of their excellent staff on our wedding day. Having spent many an hour in the lead up to the wedding drooling over food photos of their past events on their Facebook site, I am pleased to say it lived up to expectations.
We would happily recommend Rococo.
Chantal & Neil, wedding, Hereford, August 2013
Dear Eddie and Emma,
WOW !!!!! Well, well , well !!!!
What a fantastic wedding dinner you produced for Charlotte & Alex’s big day !!! THANK YOU so much !!
You really did us proud....and we couldn’t have asked for anything better ! So many of our guests have commented on how delicious and beautifully presented the food was! Your attention to every detail was amazing......and the service excellent. Full marks to your young waiters and waitresses !
I loved the truffle pea-salad ( the hint of sage worked very well, the pancetta crispy and the parmesan just gave a bit of zing). The lamb was delicious and beautifully tender....the gratin dauphinoise perfect, veg al dente and colourful. And all hot!
The pud was just as fantastic as the first tasting at your house! A fabulous end to the meal. How you managed that in the heat of that kitchen tent was incredible!
Tara was extremely patient with us, and we felt very confident in her discrete command at front-of-house. Any hitches were imperceptible. Please thank her from me. It was good of her to arrange to replace the table cloths etc, the tables beautifully laid, and to be sure the napkins were gathered up ....the cake safely boxed up.... and so many other things I wouldn’t have remembered to even think about!
We were able to really enjoy the day without having to worry about a thing! I never thought that would be possible! Thank you so much !! We were having such a good time, I’m sorry I didn’t look in to thank you until almost over!
I believe you have made your mark at Homme House ! We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you very highly to anyone else who asks! Do use me as a ‘reference’ for future brides to contact.
Charlotte & Alex’s wedding - Pamela (Mother of the Bride), Homme House, June 2013
I just wanted to send a quick note, which I mean to follow up more formally shortly - to say thank you so much, for all your hard work catering for our Wedding on Saturday. It was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for - the best food we've ever tasted at a wedding!
The salmon was out this world, particularly the Whiskey cure. And the fillet of beef, so succulent, absolutely stunning. The care and tentative nature of your staff too - made all the difference. They were absolute fantastic.
We were inundated with praise and compliments for all your efforts too. If you have a link to a feedback forum/ website/ blog that you'd like us or some of our guests to sing your praises, we'd be delighted to gather and share.
Once I have professional photographs of the food developed, I'll get a couple of shots to you. In the meantime, truly a huge thank you for all your hard work and dedication - it really was an above average effort and contributed to what we feel, was just the perfect day.
All the best
Charlotte & Fin
Charlotte & Fin, wedding, Clyro, Herefordshire, April 2013
Dear Eddie and Emma,
We just wanted to thank you both so much for everything that you did to make our Wedding dinner so special at Bishopswood House on 2nd August.
From our first discussion with you we were impressed by your attention to detail and willingness to listen to what we wanted. Thanks for all your help and advice along the way.
On the day your team were most professional and helpful throughout the day and provided us with exactly the experience that we wanted.
We had so many guests tell us that the good was the best they had ever had at a wedding, they are still talking about it now! We wanted the food to be the main event and you certainly achieved that for us.
We would recommend Rococo to others without hesitation and would be happy to talk to prospective clients about the great experience that you gave us if this would help you in the future.
Please pass on our thanks and best wishes to all of your team.
John and Cristina
John & Cristina, wedding, Bishopswood House, Ross on Wye, August 2014
We’ve just all returned home after our week at Bryngarth so I can now reply to you. We all had a wonderful time and it was made very special for us by your looking after us so well last Saturday.
Matt, Rose and Cian looked after us superbly. They worked hard in the background so we weren’t really aware they were there.
We just kept seeing this delicious food appearing and when we walked into the kitchen later it was as if they’d never been, they’d left it so immaculate.
We had an eight year old amongst us who watches rather a lot of cookery programmes. I think he summed it all up for us when he told Rose that “The food is so good I almost fainted. The chef should be famous”. The beef was superb and although we weren’t all adventurous about it, the chilli fennel went down very well with the chocolate fondants. That was something different. Then to have the leftovers so we didn’t cook the next night was an added bonus!
We all relaxed, laughed a lot and thought our evening was fabulous.
So thank you all very much indeed from all of us
Daphne, annual extended family dinner party, Hereford, November 2014
I just wanted to write to you and say thank you for your support. Please can you thank Eddie as well as the amazing Hannah, who was wonderful at Front of House. The whole team were lovely and people were very complimentary about the food.
Emily - wedding planner for Poppy & Sam’s wedding, May 2014
Thank you so much for everything!! The food was just amazing and we have had so many compliments on it, one of my friends who is getting married next year has asked me to pass on your details so I will make sure I do!
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and Eddie.
Many thanks again.
Poppy & Sam, wedding, Monmouthshire, May 2014
We were guests at the above wedding and really wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your scrumptious wedding food yesterday, it was delicious. Also the waiters and waitresses were very efficient and friendly a credit to you company.
(random guest at) Georgina & Rob’s wedding, Weobley, August 2013
many thanks to you and Amanda and the rest of the team on the day for an impressively efficient and professional service and wonderful food
Graham, joint 50th birthday party, Clyro (Herefordshire), June 2013
Your “enviable reputation” is not only intact but enhanced!
Sally loved her surprise and we all had a really great time. Then as you mention the weather was kind which made a huge difference. The only negative thing over the weekend was the defeat of the Lions!
To be more specific:
Paul, Caleb and Heidi were all very efficient, competent and obliging. Paul, particularly, kept an impressive calm even when the celebratory lunch kicked off 30 minutes late!
Friday 28/6 – the boeuf bourguignon was good and as a “drop-off” excellent. Eddie [?] using skirt managed to keep the meat succulent and tender. By the way your bread throughout the weekend was exceptional.
Sally would love to find something like it in London.
Saturday 29/6 – the lunch was simply delicious and we all loved it. Perhaps we had all eaten too much, but the spice shredded chicken and cous cous served for supper was the meal we found the least exciting.
Perfectly enjoyable but “fine” rather than “good”.
Sunday 30/6 – Paul did a great job cooking a very full breakfast for us all. It was seriously delicious and charmingly served by Heidi. The lasagne and salad were perfect for the evening meal which is when we ate it.
Thank you, Emma, you and your staff did an outstanding job. We will have to return to Felin Newydd and do it all again.
With best wishes,
Guy and Sally.
Guy & Sally, Sally’s surprise birthday weekend away, Felin Newydd House, Llyswen (Powys) June 2013
Steve and I were thrilled with how things went - you did an amazing job and the food was perfect - we had many comments on how lovely it was - in particular the gorgeous salmon, beef and dirty dessert.
Thank you for you and your teams hard work . . .apologies to the poor bar staff that stayed behind - I hope they haven't been mentally scarred for life.
I very much hope to have an excuse to use you again in the future!
Hannah & Steve, wedding, Clun, Shropshire, October 2013
Thank you so much for providing such a fantastic service and beautiful food for our wedding day.
The canapés were outstanding and our guests loved the fish and chip cones and how you managed to get in some of our polish heritage with the polish sausage skewers.
We've had so many amazing comments about the wedding breakfast and we were really pleased we took your guidance and help to shape the menu to the food we love. It made it different, unique and on top of all that was extremely tasty, fantastically presented and served with perfection.
Thankyou again for helping to make our wedding day so perfect
All the best

Dean & Justine, wedding, Hampton Court Castle, March 2014
Saturday was fantastic, better than I think either James or I had imagined or even hoped for. Your food with beautiful, so thank you very much!! We both couldn't keep away from the scallops...I think they may be in several photos! So many of our guests commented to say it was the best wedding breakfast they had ever tasted :)
It really was a perfect day, so thanks to you and Eddie and to the rest of your team for helping to make it so special.

Sarah & James, wedding, Hampton Court Castle, August 2014
I can't imagine there were two weddings in How Caple yesterday, so I feel fairly confident to pass on a compliment from a friend with whom I've just been chatting on the phone. He mentioned that he and his wife has really enjoyed a wedding in How Caple yesterday and that the caterers were superb. He said more in the same vein - all very complimentary. He mentioned lots of delicious canapés as well as the main course, and also how good the staff were.
Friend of a friend who didn’t attend Steph & Matthew’s wedding, How Caple Court, August 2014
The whole evening went to plan perfectly.
My parents were totally overwhelmed by the whole thing.
May I just say that Eddie & his team were brilliant. Proffesional, smart and polite. And as for the food...perfect is the best word to describe it. It was exactly as we imagined.
Please pass on our gratitude to Eddie and the waiting team & if anyone we know needs a caterer in the future i'll definately be giving them rococos number.
Once again thanks to you all.
Jason, parents’ surprise anniversary weekend, March 2013
I just wanted to send you a note to say a massive thank you for our wedding last month, we had a fantastic day and Rococo were a huge part of that, the food and service was absolutely brilliant and we had loads of comments complimenting the staff and food.
A special thanks to the guys who stayed to serve at the bar, who were great fun!
Many thanks for all your help and guidance through the planning and preparation also.
Jordon, Branwen and Family.
Jordon & Branwen, wedding, Herefordshire, September 2013
THANK YOU - YOU WERE ALL BRILLIANT!
THE PERFECT LUNCH IN THE PERFECT SETTING....
We've just got back to Birmingham after our long weekend in Clyro, so sorry not to be able to drop you a note yesterday.
Thank you so much for the magnificent job you all did in creating and serving our summer birthday lunch. It all worked perfectly. The lamb was tender and full of flavour, the salmon was refreshing with beautiful spices and the parmigiana was also very popular, just how Stuart likes it. I managed to taste all three!! I especially liked the mixed green bean salad too - which was crisp and refreshing, perfect for a warm summer day. It all provided a nice contrast as well to the bbq which we had prepared ourselves the night before. I'm so glad we decided to bring Rococo in to look after us on the Sunday as we were all completely exhausted after Saturday night!
We had nearly 50 people on the day but there was plenty to go round. Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was and it went a long way to helping make our event a huge success. And just as important, Polly and her team were fantastic, friendly, flexible and a joy to work with, so the atmosphere was really relaxed which was great for us and our guests. They really looked after everything brilliantly and nothing was too much trouble. Even finding little bits for our doggie guests, and helping our guest desert makers, when they were stuck for utensils.
Judy, partner’s birthday weekend away, Clyro, July 2013
Just wanted to let you know that we all really enjoyed the dinner you provided at the Colloquy at the weekend. The food was perfect and the staff very friendly. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved in helping to make our weekend such a success.
Ali, celebratory dinner party, Lyonshall, September 2014
Thank you for the message which Ruth has forwarded to me. Jenny and I were delighted by the standard of food and service that you provided at Ruth's wedding. A sincere thanks from us both for helping to make it such a happy and successful day
Father of the bride, Ruth & Nick’s wedding, Hereford, August 2014
The food - what can we say... it was FANTASTIC! Every single canape and every dish was so tasty, all our family and friends have commented on how delicious it all was. The service was so slick we hardly even noticed the staff (in a good way!). Also, both Andy and I agree that dealing with you and Emma from the moment we found your website to the big day itself was by far the best communication we had out of all our wedding suppliers, etc. You really made it easy for us and we felt reassured we could leave many decisions in your capable hands.
So, thank you! We will definitely be recommending Rococo for any other events we hear of in the area. We already want to recreate the whole day (minus the ceremony) for our anniversary, ha!

Lucy & Andy, wedding, Little Stanley Farm, August 2013

I would certainly use you again.
Lucy, dinner party, Lyonshall, September 2013
The event was fab, the catering was fantastic, everyone commented about the quality of the food.

Hi Emma and Eddie,
we cannot thank you enough for ensuring Edward's and Martha's wedding breakfast was a success. Eddie, Tara and the team did us proud.
Martha & Ed’s wedding, Tina (Mother of the groom), Hereford, August 2013
Sorry for the late reply Ive being recovering on a desert beach for the last few weeks, any way Im back to work and reality today so just want to let you know what a great day our wedding was. The comments from everyone about the food and the service has be fab, everyone really thought the menu, the food, the presentation, and the teams were faultless. Everyone worked in a very professional manor and the areas were all left tidy
Even I didn’t have to worry about it as you guys were all over every point.
Please pass on my thanks to Eddie and the team from the day.

Oliver & Steph, wedding, Hereford, September 2013
We wish to thank you and your team for providing an all-round excellent catering support and services to ensure the success of our daughter Olivia’s wedding on the 19th July. Your teams on duty were superb, under the supervision of your very capable and attentive front of house management. They could not be faulted in any way and, indeed, many of our guests asked who was the catering because they were so impressed by the quality of service and food, whether it was the canapés and drinks service at our Thursday evening drinks reception or the wedding reception and dinner and bar on the Saturday of the wedding. We were also most grateful for the help of your staff members on Sunday for the lunch; I think they went beyond their brief and were most helpful.
The Saturday dinner (or breakfast as it seems to be called) was delicious. I am sure that was reflected in the empty plates. Well don the Chef and to Eddie for supervising the programme. Again, most of our guests commented on the quality of the food. The drinks service went well during both events; your staff looked good and acted with impeccable manners towards out guests.
We were pleased with the result which exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
Peter, Father of the bride, Olivia & Tristan’s wedding, Sarnesfield, July 2014
I think I have finally recovered thank you!
Eddie and the team were amazing.
The food was perfect..everybody seemed really happy with the food although people generally seemed to busy dancing on tables to enjoy the sweet!!
Thanks you so,so much..You were great all the way through.
I like attention to detail
Phil, organiser of Charity event in aid of the Little Princess Trust, Hampton Court Castle, July 2014
Wow, wow, wow! Everyone loved it. Polly was so lovely and I would like you to let her know that we ALL went to Queenswood the following day on her recommendation and we loved it.
Thanks for that.
I am so chuffed that I saved for this dinner with my friends and family. It was an experience me and my sister will never forget. Polly and her staff were amazing and very professional and I made sure they had a round of applause in the kitchen afterwards!!!
We picked Rococo because out off all the company’s on my list that I called, you were the most friendly, genuine and helpful and your website pics and Facebook looked amazing and very enticing.
The service we have received has been exceptional.
Thank you so much once again.
Rachel and her sister’s joint 40th birthday dinner party, Hereford, October 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day - as you say, we couldn't have asked for more in terms of the weather and - more importantly for you - everyone loved the food!
We would thoroughly recommend Rococo to others. I would like to particularly praise Tara, who is worth her weight in gold, she organised the day perfectly - even finding time to make sure the kids table was under control. Please also pass my thanks on to Emma as it was her cheerful, helpful phone call (at just before 5pm on a Saturday, i seem to remember) that really put Rococo on the top of the list.
Ruth & Neil, wedding, Plas Dinam House, May 2013
Just an email to say Many thanks for the most wonderful food, we were blown away and the staff were just brilliant and very attentive and Karl was especially pleased with the vegetarian food.We had a fantastic day and everybody loved the food.

Sarah, celebratory dinner party, Lyonshall, April 2014
Hi Emma! The food was amazing, pretty much everyone told me how lovely it all was and the difference on choices were superb. I even had one guest who ate his portion of the wedding breakfast then two halfs of other people's that were struggling as he enjoyed it so much!
The staff were lovely, especially the few girls I got talking to on the evening buffet and were very accommodating & kind to me.
Also the lady, her name escapes me as it was such a busy day (the one that was in charge) was fantastic and completely on the ball
Thank you for everything you have done for us over the past year It turned out everything we wanted and more our day for us was perfect.
And... When me & my husband Scott originally booked our Wedding at Hampton Court we weren't told straight away who our caterers were. I'd seen Rococo on Facebook and their previous work at Hampton Court & had already liked their page, needless to say I was delighted when Emma emailed me introducing Rococo as our Caterers. We honestly couldn't fault the service we received with them as a Couple & a Company. They went above and beyond to accommodate every little detail or dietary requirement we had with our guests (which trust me was a lot!) Even down to myself upon finding out we were expecting a couple of months before the wedding Emma & Eddie went to every length to make sure I was able to have similar food to everyone else whilst keeping it safe for me & baby and making sure I wasn't left out. When it came to the big day Rococo came in and set the Ballroom up beautifully ready for our finishing details and on the actual day well they were just amazing. The whole staff were truly lovely & the food was superb, I had tried a few bits and bobs at our tasting but alot had to be jiggled around but on the wedding day it all came together perfectly, I had endless compliments given to me from all our guests about how much they enjoyed all the food from breakfast to buffet. Overall from start to finish the whole experience was a pleasure and if we ever need a caterer again Rococo will be our first choice. Thank you again for everything you did for our wedding!
Serena & Scott, wedding, Hampton Court Castle, August 2014
Just wanted to tell you that after a fun packed weekend, spent with many a friend some dating back to our school days, the Sunday Carvery was the perfect send off for everyone. The meat was cooked to perfection, as was all the vegetables, the potatoes were especially crispy & fluffy & the yorkshire's were amazing.
One of our guests was a businessman of some note, who uses caterers regularly & he commented that this was as good a meal as he's enjoyed in a long time.
Thank you for another excellent outcome.
Wishing you a pleasant holiday.
Until the next time . . .
George, party, Leominster, October 2013
Thank You very much for last night, it was a fantastic evening and the feedback I have had was great, so thank you.
We will be in contact in the future with any other events we are holding where we require catering.
Steve, corporate MINI paceman launch, Hereford, March 2013
Dear Emma and Eddie,
We would like to thank you all very much for the wonderful service we received from Rococo at our son’s wedding on September 21st. It was a marvellous day, and your company played a large part in making it so.
From our first meeting with Eddie we felt that we were in safe hands. He was professional, helpful and supportive in the decision making at all times. We all enjoyed the tasting and were able to feel happy with the choices that were made. Our queries were always answered promptly and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Our many guests commented on how much they had enjoyed it. The American visitors were impressed with the Louisiana style canapés.
On the day, your team were calm, organised and professional. The front of house manager, Tara was extremely impressive, liaising well with the best man and managing the time perfectly. The waiting staff was prompt, helpful and considerate. It is always a sign of good service when it is so seamless it is hardly noticed.
We will recommend you wholeheartedly and thank you again for making the planning process fun and enjoyable and the day so successful.
