These are many of our qualified written testimonials that we have received for the restaurant, private buffets and afternoon teas and tea boxes:

Thanks so much for Friday!! The buffet was amazing (as always) and very well received, with lots of positive comments. Even the final touches, such as lining the table were fantastic and just gave it a very professional finish. The lady with the peanut allergy was so grateful for your care and consideration in keeping everything separate, and she was absolutely fine.
We passed your name to quite a few of the delegates who asked – maybe next time we do one of these things you can leave some business cards if you have them for people to take away if they are interested? Thanks again, you guys are brilliant.

Sorry I wasn’t able to be there for the delivery but everything went smoothly from the moment I first rang you. Really pleased with the spread as was everyone who attended the wake. I’m glad I chose you to do the catering and will highly recommend you to anyone else requiring your services. Look forward to doing business with you next time.

Thank you for the lovely food . It was delicious and everyone enjoyed the food too. So again thank you very much.

This is the first time I have been to this coffee house, and it we excellent, the staff are lovely, the coffee wonderful, and we couldn’t go without having cake, which was enormous, and such good value.

Thank you for the wonderful spread following XXX’s funeral. A special thank you from the 2 who had separate boxes they were both so pleased to be catered for.

Thank you so much for the buffet that you prepared for me last weekend. There was loads to eat and lots of variety. The dairy free option was very well received and enjoyed. Will definitely order from you again.

Thanks to the Ginger Cow team for supporting our event this morning. The rolls and pastries went down a treat with all (it’s always good to see a VIP with a smile on their face), so much appreciation for providing everything despite the “scope creep” we inflicted on you!

Just wanted to say, as ever hubby and I had a lovely lunch today, can’t find how to leave a review on Facebook so here it is, always greeted with a friendly hello, food was delicious, had a BLT in a cafe in Lincoln last week and was not a patch on the one I had today, am always recommending Ginger Cow to visitors that ask where there is to eat when they visit my historic place of work, never disappointed with the food or service received from this family run business, thank you, the village would be lost without this cafe. 5 stars all the way xx

I just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and your team for the superb afternoon tea today. You really looked after us. Everyone has said how much they enjoyed themselves. It was absolutely delicious!

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.

The buffet was excellent and enjoyed by all with enough left for tea later in the day. The mini cakes were a big hit all going in one go backed up by the big chocolate cake.
Thanks for looking after us so well at short notice.

The buffet was fantastic thank you! Everyone enjoyed it and it fed far more than 20 people. Fed the team on Thursday and again today. We will order again for upcoming meetings.

Everything was perfect thank you.
Everyone enjoyed the buffet and there was plenty to go round.

Thanks again for another lovely meal! Your burgers are just the best 😁

Just to let you know how impressed we, along with all the guests, were with the buffet. It was amazing and nearly everyone commented on it (people of the older age generation do seem to judge a funeral by how good the food was at the wake after!😁). You made it so easy for us and it was one less thing for us to worry about as I knew the catering was in safe hands.

Just wanted to drop you a thank you for the lovely food you supplied today. It went down a storm and they were very impressed by the amount and taste.

Just wanted to say thank you for the absolutely fantastic service and utterly delicious afternoon teas we’ve had today. Ginger Cow has been totally exceptional for a lot of years now, but today’s treat was more than we expected. I’ve already put in my order for the Christmas Celebration boxes. Thank you Di and Peter. Wishing you luck and love in these strange times… you are providing a lot of happiness.

I was fortunate to ha,be been sent a Gentleman’s tea for Father’s Day which came from Ginger Cow. It was delivered by a lovely lady, I was amazed to see the cardboard hamper so well thought out, But once opened the surprise continued, packed with an amazing array of food,all packed and presented in a very professional manner, sandwiches salads etc the list goes on and all to a high standard, There was enough food for four people, It felt like afternoon tea at the Ritz Well done Ginger Cow

Want to thank these lovely people, they are so kind, they are making mum her afternoon tea for her 80th Birthday, although they are not open on Monday, they have offered to help, how kind is that . I’m so grateful to them, and they are going to deliver from Coningsby . A big Thankyou to them. Xxxx

We visited last week for afternoon tea and it was absolutely fantastic we had a children’s afternoon tea and two adults and we had enough cake to keep us going for a few days after!
This week we visited again for breakfast, the food was cooked to perfection.
The staff were absolutely lovely, very friendly and helpful. They made so much effort with cleaning down the tables, chairs and the menus after each customer. Definitely made you feel safe.
Thank you very much we will be returning

“What lovely food and service we all experienced today. We all felt so safe, ginger cow have gone above nd beyond to put up special measures to keep staff and customers safe and it didn’t go unnoticed. And the milkshakes… Well… ‘they are better than disneyworld shakes’ and that’s saying something!! Keep up the good work xxx.”

“So I bought 2 afternoon teas to take out for my mothers birthday … oh my days these are bigger than I remember a few months ago! Managed to feed 2 adults plus a child then carry on each day having a treat for 3 days! She was so impressed and we all enjoyed every bit. Couldn’t believe the value, we really don’t know how they can do it for the price 🥰 We even commented how there is so much more than a local establishment’s afternoon tea. Blown away yet again and would definitely recommend.”

“Lovely lunch today – our first visit, but definitely not our last! Great burger, fab children’s meals and an amazing club sandwich. Love the family atmosphere, and excellent service. Didn’t try a milkshake, but they’re on the list for next time!”

“We had a afternoon tea with you yesterday just wanted to say thank you so much for your beautiful spread it made our day very special. And we have just finished off the cakes this lunchtime. many thanks again.”

“Thank you so much for arranging the afternoon tea for us. It was so lovely and she really enjoyed it. There was so much food and cake even the neighbours got a slice. Definitely worth the money. Thank you again xx”

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.

Yes the buffet was great! Everybody said the food looked and tasted great. The presentation was excellent.

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.

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

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 an how nice it was and the quantity.

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.

Great job by your staff. Lovely food and refreshments. We are most grateful.

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 🙂

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.

This is a favourite place to eat lunch or enjoy a coffee. Tonight the hubby and I went for an evening meal after voting. The lovely vibe is very different to during the day, if the weather had been better we would have eaten outside. Menu was great the food and wine was fabulous and nothing is too much trouble. Well done Di and Peter. If you want something different for an evening meal this is the place to go. I can highly recommend it, go on give it a try you will not be disappointed.

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.

Lovely ambiance, lovely food, lovely drink, lovely owners. Car park opposite, plus cake shop and deli. Di and Peter have made this upmarket establishment a great place to visit. Always a warm welcome.

Excellent service. Excellent food. Friendly staff. Try it you won’t be disappointed great place to meet.

I often go the the ginger cow on dinner breaks or at the weekend. Wether it’s for a coffee and a slice of there yummy cakes or a good hot meal! Great quality and great service. The owners are an amazing couple and always make us us welcome! Thank you guys your doing a great job xx

Ginger Cow is a small coffee shop in the village of Coningsby. The staff were very helpful, lovely individual decor, and a good choice of menu. It is not the cheapest, but the quality is superb. We had a light snack, with coffee, and then could not resist the fabulous choice of cakes, and had to buy some to take home with us. Great choice of milkshakes in unusual flavours, and wide range of smoothies. Free car parking across the road. Would definitely recommend a visit.

I had a lovely Stilton burger here, it was really tasty and came with plenty! The staff were also very friendly I would definitely recommend people go here for lunch!

Good full English breakfast

I enjoyed my milkshake I had that my mom treated me too and will eventually try some food too!

Absolutely amazing, Di and her team are fantastic. My husband and I called in for an afternoon coffee, as we walked in the door I was instantly drawn to the cakes, all I can say is out of this world, delicious isn’t a strong enough word for how amazing it tasted. The gifts that are on display are lovely and very reasonably priced ,service is more than a 5*. I can not wait to return. Thank you so much Di and your staff they are a credit to you .

There were lots of nice comments and as usual you did us proud…..thank you.

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.

The food was really good thank you, all of our driving instructors that were presenting yesterday were very impressed with the quality of your food. Thank you very much.

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.

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.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the buffet you supplied and we received lots of positive comments from our visitors. Everything looked very fresh, appetising and appealing.

Thank you so much for providing the buffet for us after the funeral last Thursday. You were so helpful and sensitive before and during the occasion and the food was plentiful and tasty. We would thoroughly recommend you to others for your professional, yet friendly service.

Wow, you guys are so efficient… Thanks very much and I look forward to seeing you.

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.

Thank you for all you did to make Joan’s farewell so memorable.

 The food you provided on Saturday was really lovely and looked so good too. My sister said she thought it was one of the best buffets she had been to. The quantities were just right too.

Your Carrot Cake is delicious and is so soft and moist – I couldn’t make it better myself. I had to come back for more.

 Thank you so much for attending the Charity Summer Fayre yesterday in Bottesford…. We raised over £300 for the British Red Cross medical loan centre from the sale of refreshments and the tombola so we are very pleased. This will enable the purchase of three new wheelchairs, which will be loaned out to clients…. We very much hope to work with you again in the future.
