Lauren Charlotte Richardson reviewed Rival Catering — 5 star
· April 15 ·
Seriously could not give these wonderful ladies anymore praise if I wanted to, you deserve a million stars, not just 5!! They catered my tipi wedding last year in July, provided a fantastic menu with a choice of several dishes. Pre ordering the meals was super easy and trialing the dishes was in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We had hog roast to end the evening! All of the food was fantastic.
However it was not just the food that was brilliant. They did absolutely everything they could to make sure our day went smoothly, no job was too big and they were happy to help with areas that had nothing to do with the catering side of it!! It helped me to relax so much and the day would not have been so perfect if it wasn’t for you!! I’m a forever grateful!!! Thank you so much!! Xx

I was fortunate enough to attend a military function on Saturday 29th March 2014.From a personal point of view, I was extremely impressed with the service that your company provided. From a guest’s perspective, the event went without a hitch, and the service we received at the table was second to none. The food was excellent and served well. It is dedication and professionalism like this which ensures that events such as this pass without any issues or complaints.Please pass on my thanks to all of the staff involved for their professionalism.
Claire and the team,
I'd just like to pass on my thanks again for your outstanding service last night. No one was left wanting or unsatisfied, and you were a credit to your company and your profession. I will not hesitate in the slightest to contact you again when the next event comes along.
Thank you again,

We had Rival Catering to do our sit down meal for 90 people for our wedding on 17th August 2013, and from the minute they got there they were brilliant. They got everything sorted for the welcome drinks for us, and when the food was served it was absolutely delicious. The service was great too and the master of ceremonies bit they do really kept the day running smoothly. They also ran the bar for us on the evening, and again they did a really brilliant job. Nothing was to much trouble and they just got stuck into anything that needed doing. We really don't think we would have enjoyed our day so much if we hadn't picked Rival Catering. The lovely food and the great service really got the room buzzing.
Although they were one of the cheaper caterers the quality of the food and service was anything but. Thank you for everything you did for us girls and we really cant recommend you enough.
Mr & Mrs Franklin - August 2013
As always, you gave us an excellent meal, well cooked and beautifully served. We appreciated the spotless kitchen you left with everything in its place, also your help beforehand.

Dear Claire and team,
We just wanted to send you an email to thank you for the amazing catering of our wedding on Saturday. All of our guests were delighted with the food and service. We appreciated all of the ways in which you catered for the needs of our guests in terms of dietary requirements and many other ways on the day, such as sourcing a drink for a sick child and serving a full meal to a latecomer. The service you provided was excellent in everyway and the day ran so smoothly and was fluid. We really enjoyed the day. Thank you so much for everything. We would certainly recommend you to anyone so please feel free to use us as a reference.

"We have been using Rival Catering for the past few years for formal dinners, presentation evenings etc.
catering for approx. 60 to 80 people.
We are extremely pleased with their service. The meals are always of excellent quality, food always hot and the staff
great. Menus are varied and can be suited to any budget, nothing is ever too much trouble.
They come in on the morning of the event, prepare everything fresh and leave the kitchen in an immaculate condition,
even washing the floor.
Would not hesitate in giving them a recommendation, only hope we shall still be able to obtain the dates we want!!"
S.Conway ECC Chairman
Thank you so much for doing a fantastic job yesterday at my daughter's
wedding. The food was great, hot, well served and you dealt with
dietary and other needs so efficiently and effectively. Your staff
seemed to deal with everything with politeness and courtesy making us
all feel looked after and relaxed. Please do pass on my thanks to the
rest of your team.
"We recently got married on 28th May 2011 and chose rival catering to cater for our sit down meal for 95 people. What a fantastic job they did. Food was beautiful. The service was outstanding, not only that but the communication before and during made us feel so at ease. The value for money is second to none. Adam and I would like to say how much we appreciate the way your service made our special day so rememberable. Kind regards"

"Rival Catering have regularly, over a number of years now, provided their services to Leicester Forest RFC and we have never been disappointed! They offer an excellent and very friendly service and seem always able to cope with our limited kitchen space. Great job girls!"
"After planning our wedding abroad, we looked far and wide for a catering company who would do a good job for our reception back home. It turned out to be a nightmare and after stressing and worrying about who we could use, considering we had a limited budget we decided to go with RIVAL catering. I knew the food would be ok because I'd...
tried some of their meals at our local rugby club, but the meal we had was absolutely brilliant! I don't think i've had such a enjoyable course as the one served up for us. Still now a year on people i work with comment on what a superb meal it was and wouldn't hesitate to reccomend RIVAL to other couples planning a event where a dinner or buffet would be required. TOP QUALITY FOOD!!!TOP QUALITY SERVICE!!!TOP QUALITY PEOPLE!!!!"
"Rival Catering have provided a very satisfactory, reliable, friendly and professional catering service to the Leicester Caledonian Society
for our Haggis suppers and a few other events over the past 5 or 6 years at functions with up to 200 guests present"
