I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for making my son's 18th party a success. The buffet you provided for 85 people was absolutely fantastic. The service from start to finish was superb. All staff were friendly, professional and extremely helpful…. The selection of food was outstanding and the way it was presented was to extremely high standard. Everybody at the party commented on the food, it was fresh, delicious and extremely tasty. Everybody went up for 2nds and more. There was plenty of choice and the amount was perfect. I will be certainly using this service again and will be recommending it to everyone

I just wanted to say that the party was great and the food was absolutely amazing, so thank you so much for all of your help and advice throughout the process. The two staff Barry and Danielle (hope they are the right names) were absolutely amazing too. They were friendly, helpful and polite (and Barry probably thought he was funny too! Haha) throughout and did a fantastic job so please will you pass on a great big thankyou to them.
The day went without a hitch except for one massive downpour just before the birthday girl arrived, but this did not spoil the day thank god. It must have been good as I was expecting them all gone by 7-8pm but had to throw people out at 12 midnight. I will definitely recommend your company to others (although many have already asked about who provided the food as they were very impressed) so hopefully you may get a few more orders from the party. I will certainly be using you again in the future as it took all of the stress away so we could also enjoy the day too.

Many Many thanks to you and the staff on the day, it was great from beginning to end.

I used Douglas Willis to provide my catering for my wedding on Saturday and I can’t recommend them enough. We had 180 guests with canapés on arrival and a hog roast and BBQ served in the evening with plenty of veggie options. From start to finish I dealt with Lisa and I’m so pleased our paths crossed. She’s amazingly efficient and so friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for Lisa and her customer service and communication was second to none throughout. I had nothing but amazing reviews about how good the food was and I definitely think you’ll be getting a few new customers! Thank you again so much Lisa - everything went perfectly. X

We recently used DW to cater for my husband's 40th birthday party at home. We had around 30 adults and 10 children and used DW to cater for everyone. Everything was hassle-free - the choosing of menu, ordering and the food arriving / set-up on the day itself. We had a mixture of meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans and the choice offered from DW was superb! We ordered for everyone coming to the party - but we had so much food, even with people returning for more food and plenty for the day afterwards too! Everyone commented on how great the food was, with many asking for DW details so that they could use them at future parties. The food was amazing and I would more than recommend DW to be used.

I was asked to organise a social night for Abergavenny Cricket club for their senior presentation night on 14/9/2018. As A regular customer of Doug Willis Butchers I decided to order a hot buffet from them. Customer service from Lisa was excellent from my first enquiry and continued to a followup phone call this morning just to check all had gone well.
I ordered a chicken curry with rice and a lasagna, both were delivered efficiently and nothing was too much trouble. Both dishes proved to be excellent in terms of taste and flavour but also with the generous portion provided. Desserts were also delicious and the cheese boards stunning. I recieved compliments about the food from every person who attended and I know that all these comments were genuine as there was minimal waste. if fact I think that every plate was cleared! Massive thanks to Peter and all the team.
I would highy recommend this service to anyone looking for events caterers.

I cannot praise the wonderful team of Douglas Willis enough. I got married back in July and Lisa, and her fabulous team took the utmost care of our big day!
Right from the get-go the customer service was second to none, and nothing was too much trouble which was incredible because they provided amazing quality and went so far beyond our expectations and at such an affordable price! Our guests were raving about how lovely the food was, with some even claiming it was the best they'd experienced at a wedding!
The volume as well!! No snack-size portions here, there was plenty to suit even the most ravenous of guests! I don't think we could have dreamed of finding such a down to earth and humble team, they were truly amazing!! They did everything with such precision and efficiency from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for better.
Thank you so much to all the staff, you were all incredible!

Douglas Willis really impressed us for a corporate event we had. There is such a good variety of food options which all comes fresh for the day. The desserts are also amazing, definitely worth having a look at the menu for any event! Lisa is great at responding to any questions and will check up on how you found the food after your events. High quality food and great value for money. Thank you DW, we'll be recommending you!
