Here is what the multi Michelin star chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli had to say about our food at an event CLICK HERE

Private events

the food was delicious and your attention to detail, your timings and the care taken were exceptional. All our guests commented on how excellent the food and service was, we could not have asked for more. You had clearly gone to so much trouble and were enthusiastic and cheerful throughout the evening in what could have been a rather stressful situation given the awful weather and completely took the worry away from me, for which a huge thank you!!
— Serena Burnell, Private Party
We wanted a more relaxed festival style wedding which allowed more flow to the day for our 220 guests than a rigid seating plan arrangement. You’re in safe hands here if you choose Dan, his relaxed ‘nothing too much trouble’ approach is just what we needed. With delicious local produced food on the day and the next morning for brunch, all served from a funky wagon with a smile
— Chris & Freya Wedding
Spade and Spoon provided the food for our three day private festival party. They exceeded both our and the clients expectations, beautiful trailer serving wonderful food with enthusiasm and fun. The trailer was open day and night providing snacks as well as managing to serve a three course sit down meal for 70 guests all from the same trailer!! A great addition to any private party with a team that’s a joy to work with.
— Clarence Pegrum, Founder of Tink Productions
Thanks so much for doing the amazing breakfast for the wedding guests. It was the perfect end to our celebration. The food and drink were spot on for helping ease the morning after the night before and the service impeccable. You and your team went beyond the call of duty, nothing was too much trouble and everything served with an enthusiastic smile. I’m looking forward to booking you again for our next event and absolutely wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to my friends. All the best - you deserve success!
— Rachel Fielding, Wedding Breakfast
We were blessed to have Dan and Spade and Spoon cater for our daughter’s 40th birthday party. Everything was perfect, right from the first contact with Dan, to the organising of the menu and, of course, to the day itself. The food was totally scrumptious and enjoyed by all. Although the event was 3 months ago people are still talking about the food now! Being locally sourced and prepared with great love and care only added to the enjoyment. His lovely trailer complemented the marquees and our own decorations. Dan and his lovely mum are delightful people and soon became an integral part of our celebrations. We can’t recommend them and their food highly enough.
— Ann Zytynski, 40th birthday party

corporate events

Having Spade and Spoon at the finish line of one of our biggest charity events was the icing on the cake for me. Not only was Dan and his team an absolute delight to work with, they were graciously accommodating to our event requirements and their menu went down a treat with everyone. The food was delicious, was visually appealing, of great quality, and all locally produced.
— Kate McCormack, Fundraising Manager, British Heart Foundation
Dan was very flexible and easy to work with from the start. On the day of our summit, the food was delivered and prepared right in front of us with detail and precision that I have never before experienced. The result was mouth-watering delicious food enjoyed by all our 290 guests!
— Emily Hall, Events Manager Brighton Chambers Of Commerce
We absolutely loved having Spade and Spoon cater our morning Alpha Brunch. Dan was an absolute delight, the sausage and egg baps were delicious and his home-made granola was a total win! We can’t wait to invite him and his team back again. Thank you Spade and Spoon.
— Lara Willis, St Peters Church Brighton
We greatly enjoy working with Spade and Spoon. Dan and the team provide the perfect pairing of excellent customer service with top notch, locally sourced food. Perfect to pair with our wines; our guests loved the pork & crackling with all the trimmings.
— Tom Surgey, Business Development Manager Ridgeview Wines
Dan and his team at Spade and Spoon were incredible catering for our event. The food was top class, full of passion and soul. We had so many people commenting on how good the food was and from the massing queue Spade and Spoon were popular. Will definitely have them catering at our events for the future.
— Tom Joyce, Kingfisher, Brand B&Q

It was a pleasure to have Spade and Spoon at our Lambing event. Dan and his team provided fantastic food to thousands of visitors over the two days, always with humour and professionalism. We have already booked Dan to attend other events in the year as his commitment to both quality and local produce was very evident and remains in line with our principle objectives.
— Phillip Holroyd-Smith, Events Co ordinator Sparsholt College
Spade and Spoon have been an absolute pleasure to work with, right from the start and throughout the nine day event. Dan prepared an excellent menu to fit with the theme of the event and delivered amazing food that our visitors and staff raved about. The care and thought that goes into everything he serves makes it one of the best catering units I have ever tasted food from. The unit itself looks great, the team are professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Looking forward to the next one!
— Francesca Barrett, Events Leeds Castle
Dan is very enjoyable to work alongside, running a well thought out and professional operation. Making my job as an events manager a whole lot easier! Spade and Spoon made a big contribution to our event and logistically could not have been more simpler to deal with as everything was self contained.
— Adrain Bristow, freelance production and events manager
