What People Say

We recently had the Ginger Cow to cater for the Boston netball league presentation night. The night was a huge success and helped by the quality and quantity of food on offer. There was event seconds offered. All the comments I received from the 13 teams there was that the food was lovely and would enjoy it again.
D Wing, Boston Netball

It was easy to discuss and arrange changes to the initially suggested menu with you in order to give the vegetarians in the group a greater choice. You kept me fully informed about the progress in estimating the probable numbers of guests to be catered for and your final phone call confirming the event was most welcome and meant that I could concentrate on other tasks. Considering how little time was available to make the arrangements I felt that you were always in control and that the catering was in good hands.
As a family we are delighted with the quality and quantity of the food supplied. Thank you for organising the mulled wine, it was most welcome on a cold Friday afternoon. Every one involved with the catering were very friendly and worked hard to make sure that the guests were well fed and watered.
Thank you for helping to make the event a success.
M Stewart, Boston

Yes the buffet was great! Everybody said the food looked and tasted great. The presentation was excellent.
J Rhodes, New York

Thank you all so much for your hard work on the 4th. Everything went really well. The afternoon tea and buffet were both gorgeous. A particular favourite of everyone were the gorgeous scones and the chocolate cake! Yourself and your staff were lovely and nothing was to much trouble. Your service was exactly what we wanted for our wedding and the afternoon tea just set the mood perfectly.
M Sanders, Boston

Party was great, food was lovely and everyone enjoyed it, we didn't have a lot left! Very impressed, thanks very much.
R George, Lincoln

I would like to once again thank you and Diana so much for the buffet that you supplied to us on Saturday at my mum and dad 50th Anniversary. Everyone commented on how nice it was and the quantity.
D Freeman, Coningsby

We were very pleased. Thank you for helping to make the day a little bit easier for us. We were also delighted that the leftovers were able to go to feed the homeless that evening and had feedback that they regarded it as a feast. Our mother would have been delighted by that too. Thank you
L Wolverson, Boston

Great job by your staff. Lovely food and refreshments. We are most grateful.
D Sattelle, Boston

We were absolutely delighted with the food and service received from yourselves, is was fantastic. The food was delicious and so many of our guests commented on just how good it was. There was plenty of food and lots of variety and it looked wonderful when it was laid out. The whole process of planning with you was incredibly easy and it was a real joy to have you cater for us. Many many thanks :-)
P & M Carey-Slater, Boston

Ginger Cow provided us with a friendly and comprehensive service, including face to face consultation to plan our events catering, regular updates via email and text to cover any changes to numbers, venues etc and on line quotation. The service over the two days of the event was second to none with more than adequate numbers of staff provided to serve our guests as required. The food itself was nothing short of delicious and we are still being told how wonderful it was by our guests. In short, everything tasted great, was well presented and there was plenty of it. Such high standards of catering came in at the high end of what i wanted to pay but I am glad that we did as no one was disappointed. Thank you Di, Peter and the Ginger Cow.
R Huckle, Coningsby

I thought the Ginger Cow lunch was brilliant. Lovely spread of food and presentation was great! Thank you, it was yummy!!
Local Coningsby Services

Fab food from a friendly and helpful team. Thank-you so much for all of your help both on the night and leading up to the event itself. We had a LOT of great feedback about all of the food from our ladies. Everything was tasty and homemade and I know the puddings were a particular hit! I would definitely recommend you to anyone - delicious food, great choice and very reasonably priced
Clare - Boston Netball League

Brilliant! Di and Pete at Ginger Cow provided all the catering for 70 guests at 60th birthday party for my husband. I knew it would be good but it was absolutely brilliant...

C Acheson, Boston

Many thanks to you and your wife for your hard work. We were so pleased to be able to leave everything to you on the day of the funeral; it was one less thing to think of! The food went down very well and there seemed to be plenty for everyone even though far more people stayed than we had anticipated. We were impressed by the way that everything was ready in plenty of time and without fuss, and the presentation of the buffet was very attractive. We shall certainly look out for your cafe next time we are close to Coningsby.
J Stokes & D Sattelle

We had a wonderful time thanks and we were very impressed with the buffet and the general service that you provided. Several of our guests commented on the quality of the food, the presentation and also the sheer variety and choice that was available. You will be pleased to know that at least two people asked for your details, to which I referred them to your website. My wife and I could not have been happier with how it all went and I would have no hesitation to either refer you to others, or indeed to use you again in the future. It was to a certain extent a punt in the dark on our behalf as we had never previously met, or used your services, but we were very grateful for you turning up as planned as were delighted with the quality.
M Bishop, Navenby

The buffet was excellent, good choice and plenty of it. Thank you once again for your prompt, efficient service. Look forward to doing business with you again.
D Sylvester, Environment Agency

Thank you Peter & Di, for all you did to make Joan's farewell so memorable.
Mr J King, Boston

Thanks a million for all you did for the event... we were all pleased to help with what appeared to be a successful event... thanks again - and well done.
Mr B Aron, Stanhope Hall, Horncastle

I’m so pleased I used Ginger Cow to cater for my Mum’s 65th birthday party. The service was truly excellent and the food was delicious. Really delicious in fact! Booking and payment was simple and Diana delivered our food at the exact minute she indicated she’d arrive which matters when you’re planning and setting up for a large party. We catered for 60 and everyone left our party stuffed and offering us lots of complements for the food. I actually caught one guest sneaking a bowl of profiteroles out of the door! All in all Ginger Cow offered me a helpful and diligent service and some really terrific food. I shall definitely recommend their service and plan to use them again.
Ms K Pierce, Woodhall Spa

Thank you for your recent sandwich buffet over our 3 day event at Cadwell Park. The service was great, pre-event communication excellent and deliveries on time. Food was of good quality and well presented. We will be in contact again should we decide to do the event next year.
Ms V Seaton, Scania (Great Britain) Limited at British Superbikes, Cadwell Park
