Heather & Chris – Wedding – Merchant Adventurer’s Hall – October 2023
We chose Homegrown Hospitality for our wedding in October and they were brilliant throughout the whole process. Amazing food, really good with accommodating dietary requirements, and all of our guests were very impressed with the quality of service on the day.
Miranda & Liam – Wedding – Sheriff Hutton Village Hall – October 2023
Wow absolutely fantastic catering service, their team and food where phenomenal. I will recommend these to everyone, they took the whole stress off me on my big day and if there were issues I wasn’t aware (which is what you want on your wedding day). They made everything look so smooth. Everyone compliment the food and service at how organised it was and hats off to the chef for the tastiest Roast every. Thank you all for helping to make our day so special. X
Suzanne Bates – Party – Home in Collingham – September 2023
Thanks so much to Alice, Ellie and all the team for the amazing buffet for my birthday. Ellie was so helpful at the planning stage, and on the night, the food was delivered and beautifully displayed by Alice and her team. Everything was delicious and various vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options gave all my guests a lovely choice of items – complimentary comments all round!!! Thank you for everything!
Liv & Dave – Wedding – Newburgh Priory – September 2023
Honestly, it couldn’t have been better. The food was absolutely sensational, we have had so many compliments particularly on the beef which was cooked to perfection, and the service was equally amazing. Thank you for all your calming reassurance, saving canapes for us, and looking after us all day. Thanks again! X
Kate & Andy – Wedding – Grand Get Togethers – August 2023
They showed genuine enthusiasm for the menu we proposed, and helped us refine it to be something that would work amazingly well on the day. They had a fantastic selection of canapes to choose from and great ideas for post-wedding evening food, and were always incredibly flexible to any specific requests we had. If we’d needed it they have an extensive and diverse set of offerings of both canapes and wedding breakfast menus, but seem to genuinely thrive on personalising each menu for the people celebrating. They achieved everything we asked for and more. Everyone we spoke to after the wedding commented on just how amazing the wedding food was – and it was worlds away from the often predictable options served at weddings. Genuinely cannot recommend them enough. We’re considering a divorce so we can remarry and have them cater a 2nd wedding.
Tara & Luke – Wedding – Birdsall House – July 2023
Homegrown Hospitality catered our wedding and from the first communication Alice was just wonderful. She really understood the vibe we were going for with the food and executed it all perfectly! All the food looked and tasted absolutely amazing! We had huge compliments from so many of our guests which was just lovely. Through all the planning and all through the day Ellie, Janet and the team really looked after us and made sure everything was perfect. Couldn’t recommend them enough. Thank you ❤️
Rosie & Luke – Wedding – East Keswick Village Hall – July 2023
Firstly, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to you Ellie, Alice and the whole team at Homegrown. Wow, what an incredible day we had and you just helped to make it all run so smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for you. Ellie, you were a star coordinating all the team and checking everything was alright for us throughout. When you suggested pushing the timings back due to our delayed arrival, we knew it was in safe hands with you and it wasn’t a problem at all. The whole serving team were also brilliant, so courteous and friendly, it really made the day feel special.
Christi & Will – Wedding – Burnsall Village Hall – July 2023

Terri & Jonathan – Wedding – Bert’s Barrow – June 2023
We hired Homegrown Hospitality to cater our wedding and they did not disappoint.
From the first phone call to the last, it was a dream. The only part of the wedding that we never worried or stressed about was the catering.
On the day Alice, Ellie and the team were so organised, friendly and totally exceeded all of our expectations. The compliments they received from not only us, but all our guests were outstanding.

June Wood – Wedding Buffet – Delivered & Served – Driffield – August 2019
The food was perfect could not fault at all, and also your girls too. I think people will be asking for your details from this, ‘the best buffet food ever’ were many of the comments, oh and we should have had double sausage rolls to keep us going the next day! They were a fantastic hit too, as I knew they would be.

Amy and James – Wedding – Skipbridge Country Weddings – May 2018
I couldn’t be more pleased with Alice & the team at Homegrown Hospitality, and the level of service they provided for our wedding was worth every penny. From the initial phone call to discuss options, right through to the day of the wedding nothing was too much trouble. Alice was happy to discuss and make changes to the menu as often as needed and was so accommodating with lots of (very tricky!) dietary requests. On the day, the team were so accommodating and made sure to track my husband and me down and make sure we both got to enjoy plenty of the canapés in-between photos and chatting with guests, which we were very grateful for! Many, many guests told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had! The sharing boards were not only delicious but also beautifully presented. The sharing style really got guests talking and complemented the relaxed atmosphere of the day that we wanted. I can’t recommend Alice and the rest of the team highly enough!!
Kim and Ryan – Wedding – Hornington Manor – April 2018
Thank you so much for everything you did on Friday and Saturday. The food was amazing and we got so many compliments, the sharing boards went down a treat. It was all amazing.

From the moment I met Alice and Martin they were courteous and professional and knew exactly what we wanted. All attendees left very happy and with the bellies full. Thank you so much for all you did for us. Highly recommended to any function
Ruth Saxton – Eureka! The National Children’s Museum’s 25th Birthday Celebrations September 2017
Alice and team catered a gala party for Eureka! The National Children’s Museum. The food was absolutely delicious and the service faultless.
We loved working with them. From the very beginning, they ensured every aspect of the catering was tailored to our needs, including the table decoration and crockery – we really appreciated this attention to detail. Alice was always on hand to answer any questions or make slight changes to plans.
As for the food…all we heard were rave reviews!! Our guests loved the informality of the grazing stations and being able to sample multiple dishes…it’s always so hard to choose what you want when it all looks so mouthwatering. The presentation was sensational.
On the night, their staff were friendly and professional, and nothing was too much trouble. It was great to be able to relax and know everything was in safe hands.
They def went the extra mile for us and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
Cassy and Mark – Wedding Breakfast – Sicklinghall – August 2017
Alice and the team did our wedding food in our diy pig barn style wedding!! Alice was so helpful from day one! With me and my partner being unsure and worried Alice made us feel so secure and we found it so easy to trust her because food at your wedding is a big thing!! I can honestly say Alice and her team will not disappoint!! I’m still now having people commenting on the food and how it was amazing and the best that they’ve had! Alice was there every step of the way and it all worked to how me and my partner visioned!! So thank you Alice and the team!!
I can’t recommend you enough!! What’s not to love!!
Thank you, Cassy xx

We just wanted to email you (now that our 3 week whirlwind has come to an end) to say what a fantastic job the team did at our wedding. The food was absolutely gorgeous and had a thumbs up from all. I’m only sad that I couldn’t eat as much as I wanted to (bump and fitted wedding dress restricted a lot of space haha). Everyone including Guy and I had a lovely day and felt so happy that you were a part of it all.

Charlotte and Mark – Sawley Village Hall – Canapes, Family Served 3 course main, evening food – June 2016
Thank you so much to you and your team for all your hard work last week. To say you’ve had rave reviews from our family and friends would be hugely understating things. Not that you’re in any danger, but one of our friends said she would kill for the pannacotta recipe! All of the team looked after us and our guests so well and we’re so grateful to you for enabling us to pull off the wedding of our dreams. If we’re ever having an event that needs catering you will be the first person we get in touch with! Thank you so much again, we loved every second of it!
Charlotte and Mark (The new Mr and Mrs Taylor – thats still so weird!)

Not only was the food absolutely magnificent (honestly, we had so many amazing comments on it!) but you all went over and above to make sure all of our guests were looked after – from making sure the coeliacs got their canapés to fetching Ian’s grandma a cup of tea and keeping everyone’s glasses filled. You were awesome! and again, that pig! WOW!

The food was absolutely delicious and still being talked about to this day. We can’t thank you enough for making our day so memorable!“
Mr and Mrs Cann – Fully Plated Wedding, June 2014
“Without a doubt out wedding was the best, most amazing day of our lives. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
A huge part of this is down to Alice & Martin and their team at Homegrown Hog Roast. From the moment we got in touch with them we knew we didn’t have to look any further. Alice listened to our vision of the day, understanding totally our requirements and worked it all confidently into the plan. Our guests raved about the food – the Hog Roast wedding feast and the Ploughman’s Supper went down an absolute storm. Not to mention the Pimms reception and canapés! It was reassuring to know that all the food was sourced locally and mostly from suppliers whom Alice and Martin know personally.
Hosting the wedding at home was no mean feat for us as a family, as we had never come close to organising anything on such a big and ambitious scale. Martin and Alice were a complete god-send. They gave my dad advice whenever he asked – this was hugely reassuring, and greatly helped reduce stress levels! Alice allowed us to completely relax on the day, with nothing to worry about except enjoying ourselves!
Throughout our six month wedding planning journey there were many times when we thanked our lucky stars that we had chanced upon Homegrown Hog Roast; absolutely worth their weight in gold. Because we were so impressed, Alice and Martin were also booked for my dad’s 60th birthday BBQ – that was a great success as well!
We would highly recommend them: professional, friendly, experienced, approachable, down to earth, cheerful, brilliant!“
Sam – Wedding August 2013
“The food n the service was outstanding – even my dad, yes my dad, the former trained chef & most difficult to please foodie I know, sought them out afterwards to compliment them n is still raving about them! Alice & her lovely mum even helped me solve a problem when I was decorating the marquee the day before n was on the verge of a mini meltdown. Above n beyond the call of duty!“
