What people say

Mark was excellent to deal with from the first moment when we discussed the requirements and budget for my party. He came with a member of staff to hand round delicious canapes, and the paella and salads were both plentiful and flavoursome. Mark liaised directly with the venue, and was extremely professional throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Man with a Pan again – Mark made my 50th birthday absolutely hassle free, and the food delivered was of a high quality. Thanks Mark.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! Mark and his wonderful team did an amazing job at our party. The food was truly delicious (so many people commented on how yummy the canapes and paella both were), and the waitresses and bar team did an AMAZING job at keeping the drinks flowing. Highly recommended and will be using again. Thank you.

Man with a Pan have done two family events for us this year and both were excellent, the first was a paella selection and the second was Thai food. All food was delicious.
Mark and his team are very professional and the whole process is so easy from the booking phase through the food service, to the way they clear up afterwards. It makes entertaining very easy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Man with a Pan. I’m sure we’ll book them again.
