What our customers have to say ...

"We were so pleased that so many friends and family came back for a cuppa, sandwich and a piece of cake – they all spoke so highly of Dorset Delights. I think the numbers we planned for worked perfectly with only such a small amount left over.
I have to say I was very impressed with your efficiency, courtesy, deftness and kindness in setting up, clearing up and everything in between! You and your girls were absolutely fabulous and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.
You were perfect and just what we needed on what could have been such a sad day – you helped to make it all run smoothly.

"Thank you to you and your team for all your hard work on the day, i don't think it would have been so smooth without all your planning and advice on timings. Everyone loved the food, we have had so many comments on how nice it was, and the cheesecake was easily up there with one of the most photographed things at the wedding! My Canadian friends had never eaten a scotch egg before, they're now obsessed with them!
It was really lovely to see you when i walked down the steps to the longhouse and you handed me a drink, I felt completely relaxed and just knew we were all in the best hands! I honestly cant imagine having anyone else do our catering. "
