What Our Couples Say

“Having such a big wedding the food was the most expensive part for us and it took a while to get our heads around. Having been to weddings before and seeing the portions it all felt pretty disheartening. When the food came out on the day we could not believe that they were actually very generous portions and then upon trying the food we were blown away. The food was all delicious and guests throughout the day and since have said it was some of the best food they have ever had at a wedding and we agree very much with this. People also commented on how quickly it was served and how hot the food was considering the number of guests. All the waitresses and waiters were great and happy to help. So a massive thank you to the chef and all involved in serving the food, it most definitely was worth the money!”

Kirsty & Craig, August 2019

“A significant proportion of our guests informed us that Blackstock had provided “the best wedding food” they had ever eaten, to which we also agree! With 110 guests in attendance, we were astonished to see and hear that every single meal was served to perfection. We really did have the most perfect day and the wonderful, polite, organised, friendly staff at Blackstock had a huge part to play in the day’s success.”

Amy & Robert, September 2021
