I had my first sewing retreat in November 2019 at East Afton Farmhouse and decided to get a caterer to provide lunches and dinners for the students as a treat. Dan was amazing from beginning to end. Each meal was perfect in taste and presentation and all made to fit in with out teaching schedule. Preparation and clearing was all done efficiently too. We hardly noticed him there. All the ladies were very impressed with the high standard of professionalism and we will definitely be booking again for our next retreat.

From the very beginning Dan had exceptional patience and knowledge of food and helped us create such a beautiful wedding menu that just blew us away on the day.  It was especially amazing to hear how much our wedding guests loved the food and even months after the big day they still rave about how much they enjoyed it. The rustic yet elegant and simplistic presentation of the food was perfect and so in keeping with our wedding theme along with the succulent high quality dishes…it truly was melody in our mouths.  If we could do it all again just for the food we would.  Thank you to Dan and his friendly staff for taking care of all our catering needs on the day and helping to make our day so very special and memorable. We couldn’t recommend Dan enough.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan and his team to cater for your event, large or small. Over the course of some 10 years we have asked Dan to cater for several varied events with the last one being a hog roast for some 250 people at a family wedding in our garden. Dan will listen to your wants and needs and ensure that he comes up with ideas totally suitable for your particular event. Dan is versatile in his approach, he will listen and ensure that the catering of the event goes without a hitch. His team are a credit to him all working together to get the job done. Would recommend 100%.

Before my retirement, Dan had become my go to caterer for the corporate events on the Island. Without exception the food choice and service was excellent with all members of the team working hard to ensure the success of the events at very reasonable cost. He was the natural choice to ask to cater for a family wedding for 90 in September. Once again he delivered. I would definitely recommend.

Thank you Dan for providing catering at our son’s wedding on 5th May at Barton Manor. Many of our guests commented on the quality of food provided, and we agree that the food and service was of excellent standard. Your serving staff were friendly, hard working and attentive. We will certainly recommend your catering service to others. Many thanks.

Dan and Quirkywood Catering catered our wedding, at our family farm in October 2019. From the very first time we met, Dan was friendly, professional and accommodating. On the day, Dan and his staff went above and beyond! The buffet food was beautifully presented and tasted gorgeous. All of our guests were catered for, whether they were carnivores or vegans! A medley of desserts were served on beautiful, rustic wooden platters for each table. Dan also catered our delicious evening food. We had so many compliments on the food! All of Dan’s staff were so friendly and helpful and did everything they could for us and our guests. I can’t express our gratitude towards Dan for helping to make our day perfect! I can’t recommend Quirkywood more highly!
