what people think about crab apple catering

When it comes to planning an important event in Dorset, finding a reliable and experienced catering company can be a challenge. Whether you’re organizing a wedding reception, a corporate event, or a family gathering, the quality of the food and the presentation are essential components of the experience. Fortunately, there is one catering company that has gained a reputation for its proficiency in all types of events: Crab Apple Catering.

  • Crab Apple catered our wedding and they were absolutely amazing. We had many tasting sessions and they listened to everything we wanted but also gave advice when asked. I 100% recommend Crab Apple and can’t thank them enough for not only the amazing food but for the numerous small details that made our day so special. We are already thinking about when we can use Crab Apple again. We actually miss hanging out with them!

    These guys did a great job for our wedding buffet, which had lots of variety and went down really well with guests. The salads were made just before so they looked (and were) really fresh. Emma helped us design the menu and the set up of the catering area and was really helpful and practical, good at logistics. She was really friendly and generous with her time too, which made it a real pleasure to work with her. Thanks very much again!

    We used this amazing team for our Christmas drinks and canape party and they were just fantastic.. The food choices and quality were 10/10 and nothing was too much trouble. Good value too They turned up, with the food, served it with the drinks which left us to talk to and mingle with the guests. It was down to CrabApple that we had an amazing Christmas drinks and canape party, the best we have ever had. Its an absolute delight to find a team so professional and obliging. They will go far. Thanks to everyone at CrabApple

    Crab Apple catered our wedding in July this year. They did a fantastic job at Durlston Castle covering Canapés, sharing platters and cheese board in the evening. The weather conditions were super challenging on the day, but they have such an awesome, proactive team who were able to cope and change their plans on the go. A great team delivering great food! Cannot recommend highly enough.

    We literally couldn’t have wished for more delicious food and excellent service at our wedding!! The crab Apple guys were absolutely fantastic, the food was so scrummy and the drinks were flowing. They were so friendly from the onset and couldn’t do more to accommodate our wishes throughout. Our guests loved the food and said the service was brilliant! We couldn’t have wished for more - thank you so much!!! 100% recommend for any event, these guys were absolutely brilliant 👌🏼

OMG! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can’t thank Matt, Julia and their team for their amazing food.

We are quite picky eaters and Crab Apple exceeded all of our wildest dreams. My 40th party food was loved by everyone. So again, thank you.

I am busy recommending you to every bride-to-be I encounter. Your menu planning and tastings were so relaxing.

The wedding canapes and wedding breakfast were scrumptious, and all of our guests complimented you on the food and service. Thank you ever so much.
