I, like the reviewer before had read the negative reviews about With A Twist on this website whilst in the process of shortlisting the caterers for our wedding. However, we decided to contact With A Twist anyway on the advice from the event manager at our reception venue - and we're so glad we did!
We had a number of tastings with different companies, but With A Twist were by far the most accommodating and innovative in both their approach and food from the beginning. We needed to have meat, fish, vegetarian and gluten free options for the meal and even with this added complication nothing was too much trouble during the planing and Martin's suggestions for presenting the food that we wanted to serve our guests was always enlightening. As their name suggests, they serve their food With a Twist making every course - from the canapes to the confit pork baps in the evening - a mini event. We had high hopes that our guests would not just enjoy the food but also the way in which it was served.
On the day, we couldn't have been more happy with the way Catherine, Rebecca, Chef and their team looked after us. The canapes went down a storm - we still have people commenting to us on the amazing sausages served from a mini washing line - and bringing a personal set of canapes to us whilst we were having our photos taken to ensure we didn't miss out was a marvellous touch.
Dinner was more of the same with excellent food and service that was friendly and very professional. So many of our friends commented to both us, and the waiting staff themselves, how impressed they were with the food and the service. The chocolates served with the coffee were also a hit.
And the final fanfare was the amazing pork rolls (with crackling) served in the evening to soak up the alcohol from the day. Chef couldn't carve the meat fast enough to satisfy demand from the guests for food that was again classed by more than one of them as sublime.
So all in all, we (and as far as we know), all of our guests couldn't fault but highly commended the catering for our wedding. Our experience was polar-opposite to the negative reviews here and although I don't usually leave reviews, in this instance I felt it was more than necessary for me to do so.
If, after reading this, you still have a seed of doubt, all I say is give them a ring, go for a tasting and then make your decision. We certainly didn't regret it.
