Hugh F-W “I could have eaten all of that frittata!”
Jenny Thompson, Riverford Field Kitchen Manager
“Thank you so much for looking after The Riverford Field Kitchen’s Christmas Party on Sunday. The team really enjoyed the food and the desserts were especially good! We really enjoyed having you in our kitchen, meaning we could all relax and take a well deserved night off”.
John Roberts, Artistic Director of PuppetCraft
“Thank you SO MUCH for the lovely looking and WONDERFUL tasting spread that you gave us … you rose to the challenge of researching and putting together an East-Asian style meal that was a real WOW!…and catered perfectly for the do and do-not eat needs of 8 hungry artists who were spending the day getting a taste of China.”
Paul Stevens, Father
“Thank you very much for the wonderful food at our daughter’s christening. The whole family loved the different dishes and everyone remarked on how fresh it was to have so many different flavours and combinations that we hadn’t tried before (the vegetarian kebabs and the brocolli, blue cheese quiche and the devon goats cheese were particular favourites). You definitely helped to make it a special day for us and for Sofie.”
Rachel and Chris, Bride and Groom March 2013
“The Kitchen Table provided the catering at our wedding. We wanted the evening meal to be the centrepiece of our wedding celebrations and all the staff at the Kitchen Table certainly did not disappoint. The food was exceptional and many guests commented ‘by far the best food they’d ever had at a wedding’. However, not only was the food exceptional but also the organisation and efficiency from discussing our initial ideas through to the clearing up of the kitchen afterwards! Hannah and Sima did everything possible to make our evening meal a success and even went beyond the immediate requirements of catering to make sure it was a fantastic evening. We would highly recommend The Kitchen Table for any event you’re planning. With many thanks Chris & Rachel”
John Draisey, Father of the bride, Wedding Feb 2013
The wedding went very well, and the reception in the museum was a great success. The food was excellent, and all the arrangements seemed to go very smoothly. I was very much aware how hard the staff worked on Saturday night, and everything was accomplished without a hitch. Thank you again for all your help.
Jamie Sermon, Owner of Greenlife, Christmas 2012
We were very impressed with The Kitchen Table who catered for Greenlife’s 2012 Christmas party. Hannah and Sima were organised and professional both in their pre-party planning and on the day itself. They provided an interesting and unusual collection of menu choices and even managed to include a raw meal for one staff member. It was hard to imagine how so much delicious food could have been so efficiently prepared and served by just two people. We would recommend them highly to anyone looking for a friendly and proficient catering service
Celia Minoughan – Work Hub Manager
The Totnes Work Hub have had lovely sandwich platters and delicious lunchtime buffet food from the Kitchen Table for our training sessions and open days. We have had great feedback from our customers – everyone loves the locally sourced ingredients, especially the home made chutneys. Hannah and Sima are always very helpful and efficient, a pleasure to do business with.
“One can only turn 35 years of age once; hence a celebration of any kind must be special. From the moment I have planned my birthday away with special and close friends in a cozy cottage in Totnes, the one ingredient that would make a whole difference was the feast that we were planning to have. In this role, Sima and Hannah were our special guests. Their unique and sophisticated taste in catering made my birthday a date to remember. They have prepared one of those meals that while you are eating the appetiser, you are already concerned with the space left in your belly for dessert. The chocolate venison was indeed a crowd pleaser; however, the flavours and details in presentation of all meals made our evening a really unforgettable occasion. We are looking forward to my 36…”
” I really enjoyed the Kitchen Table conversation cafe. An excellent opportunity to hear interesting debate, open up discussion with strangers, and eat delicious food. It was a stimulating (and tasty) night out and I’m very much looking forward to the next one.”
Laura Creen, from Occombe Farm CSA
I went to a conversation cafe at the barrel house [October 2012]… what a good night! I really liked getting the chance to hear different points of views from the speakers, and then from everyone around our table. Sitting around and noshing on a lovely meal while meeting people and getting to know them in an interesting way is definately my kind of evening and I can’t wait to do it again.
Isabel Carlisle – Transition Town Totnes
…[The] Transition Network Lunch … food was delicious! Leek and cheesey scones outstanding!
Anna and Luke, newly weds. October 2012
From our first meeting with Hannah and Sima we new right away that we wanted them to cater for our wedding. Their pasion for local, seasonl food and their flexabilty and understanding of our event was spot on.
Hannah and Sima discussed various options for our special day – all of which sounded lovely and we finally decided upon a very tastey ‘Autumnal Wedding Feast’ of stews, seasonal veg and delicious puddings and local cheeses.
Hannah and Sima were very profesional and calm and delivered a gorgeous Wedding Feast, of which all of our guests were complementry – I think some of our guests will be in touch for thir events!
We would undoubtabley recomend them and use them again for future events
Carolyn and Tony Stilwell, parents of the bride
Sima and Hannah provided a delicious and very ample feast of wholesome local food for our daughter’s wedding. Tenderly cooked beef and ale casserole melted in the mouth, and a squash and butterbean stew for vegetarians was also tasty and full of interesting flavours. They provided a varied selection of yummy side dishes. The desserts were also very good , an autumn fruits crumble and chocolate torte.
They were very efficient, patient, calm and cheerful. They spent time carefully discussing and finalising the menu and arrangements for the day, and many people have since said how much they enjoyed the food.
We have, and will recommend you to everyone!
Julie Ballard, 60th celebration
I just wanted to say a very big thank you for last Sunday, everyone loved the food and it was so nice just to leave you to set up so I could look after our guests. If I’m ever brave or stupid enough to get the family together in Devon again I will certainly give you a call.
‘…the food you made for my party was delicious and everyone commented on it! Good luck with the 2nd year of the business and I will definitely recommend you to people.’

“Thank you very much for the superb job that you did providing food at Wendy’s funeral yesterday. Everybody commented on the quality and quantity, and your contribution was major in making the occasion a pleasant experience. Thank you again.”
Kate Brown, Bride
“It was such a huge help to have you both on board for the wedding – you were really reassuring before the big day and amazingly calm and collected on the day (lots of wedding guest commented on your confidence and how relaxed you were). All the planning and discussions were very professional and you seemed to think of everything. You also weren’t fazed by lots of obscure dietary demands or by working around other food which was all fab! The food itself was really delicious – really lovely variety of fresh ingredients which made tasty, colourful dishes. The desserts were particularly beautiful! You all helped hugely with clearing and serving which with such a big number of people was pretty invaluable… All in all I would recommend you to anyone!”
“We were truly lucky to have Hannah and Sima from The Kitchen Table cater at my grandmother’s funeral. Not only was their service impeccably professional, caring and considerate, but the food was comforting, incredibly tasty and a welcomed respite from what had been an emotional and trying day for my family. Hannah and Sima provided a great deal of comfort and warmth for which my family and I were very grateful. I would highly recommend their catering services for any occasion.”
Beth Clemence, Bride
“What can we say???? THANK YOU BOTH SOOOOOO MUCH!
We were both really really chuffed with the food and service you provided, we both had SOOOOO many complements about the food, and some people saying that it was the nicest wedding food they had ever eaten. It really made the day and we would not have changed a thing about the service you provided.”
Jennie, Mother of the Bride
“Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful food, it was really great to see that you had everything covered and provided a really professional service.”
Sarah Hyde, Bride
“Hannah and Sima created fresh, beautiful, delicious salads and have such an obvious passion and enthusiasm for what they do. Many of my wedding guests said how much they enjoyed the food. Top marks and thanks again for helping to make it such a special day!”
Hal Gilmore, Transition Tours
“We were really happy with Sima and Hannah’s service. We knew we were getting the best quality local food, lovingly prepared and delicious. More than great cooks, they’re creative and passionate and it was obvious they really care about the ingredients they are using and know where to get the best on the local scene. They’re also a great laugh to work with. Here’s to next time!”
Designed In Devon, business lunch
“Best catering I have tasted ever. Spend a lot of time experiencing buffet type food, this is the most amazing in a long time. Food dominated the meeting!”
Dr. Larch Maxey, Plymouth University
“The Kitchen Table catering was outstanding for our event. Busy people travelled long distances for a very productive day and the excellent catering rewarded, inspired and fuelled them. Working with you, from devising a menu to your spotless clear-up has been a pleasure. Your work was seamless and efficient, your food colourful, creative and delicious. Amazing what you can do with local organic food in February! You were integral to the huge success of our event! Thank you.”
