  • “Major the Gourmet were instrumental in making our annual event a huge success. Much of their success is rooted in their attention to detail which meant the event on the night was flawless and there were no surprises. From the initial site visit immediately after our preliminary phone call to recommendations on the menu and set up of the venue itself, plus working towards our budget, I was very impressed with their service level. And as for their food….just delicious! I thoroughly recommend them for any level of event.”
