Nettlebeds, just ouside Alresford, close to Bighton, Ropley, Alton and Winchester is Hampshire’s answer to the “boutique caterer”. Each client receives a unique personal service, thereby ensuring that however small the occasion it is the success it deserves to be.
After a course at Leiths, eight years in a top London catering company, as well as cooking in The Bahamas for a well known Author and in London for an A list Hollywood star, Janie realised that her love for entertaining, organising, creating and presenting delicious food was the way forward.
As her list of clients began to grow substantially through personal recommendation she decided to launch Nettlebeds Catering. If you would like a quotation please get in touch with Janie by email or telephone.
Thank you for making our wedding day so wonderful (along with the weather!), we have lovely comments about your delicious food and your amazing staff, we could not have asked for better.
What an outstanding evening of deliciousness you provided so lovingly for us on Saturday! Everyone has been telling me how gorgeous the good was and your legendary canapes were only marginally ahead of the succulent chicken. I have never heard such compliments. The staff were completely delightful, and nothing was too much trouble
I just wanted to thank you so very much for the fantastic Dinner and Lunch you cooked up for me over my Birthday weekend. What a total joy it was to know that someone with such expertise was in the kitchen whilst I, spoilt and lucky brat that I am, was having such fun talking to special friends, who we never see enough of. The taste, let alone the presentation was spectacular and even memorable. It was only a ‘5’ Birthday but goodness, I will never forget the fun of it. Thank you for being such an essential part of a particularly happy weekend.
Another triumph! Thank you so much for Saturday – the food was delicious, as everyone mentioned several times, and my father was delighted (as was I). My only regret was that there were so few leftovers in my fridge! A testament to how much everyone enjoyed the food. It all went so smoothly and I can’t thank you all enough.
I just wanted to say what a memorable day Pandora and I had on Saturday. You absolutely excelled yourself in putting together just the best food. In fact, many of them were even better than at our tasting! Thank you so much for working so tirelessly on our big day, especially with some of the canapés that were slightly less traditional than what you are used to. How much better to have that personalised touch that we certainly wouldn’t have had with anyone else”.
I wanted to thank you so much for ‘doing’ the most amazing dinner and canapés for Lucy’s wedding. I feel so guilty when I read another letter telling me how it was the best wedding eats they had ever had. When you consider that most of them are semi-professional wedding goers, that is high praise!
Janie, thank you for a wonderful day. All round the food was absolutely magnificent, all that we had hoped for and more. We have already recommended you to others and will continue to do so.
A long overdue thank you to you and your team for all your wonderful efforts on our wedding day. I cannot tell you how many complements we have had about your food, both its taste and presentation – you did such a good job especially given our somewhat tardy time keeping and seasickness you may have to deal with given the slope! Thank you also for working with us so patiently and coming up with so many helpful and practical suggestions, we found your advice invaluable.
It is hard to beat fishing the Test, with Mayfly hatching in unusual abundance, in equally unusually pleasant English weather! Janie came extremely close with a superb fillet of steak, scrumptious puds and ripe cheeses, delivered to the river bank, spot on time.
It was such a treat. The canapés (especially the quails egg ones which I could just eat forever) and the beef were off the charts in every aspect. We had some very happy/amazed guests. I was still eating the beef on Sunday!
A big hug of thanks for a job done enormously well, as I knew it would be before I asked you.
We all send you a special thank you for all the delicious food and the careful attention of your charming staff. Thank you too for your discreet organisation and arrangements. I stop worrying as soon as I see you!
Susie and I would like to thank you most sincerely for your hard work and skill in producing such a wonderful selection of eats for our party today. All were delicious and together they provided a good balance between ‘wow factor’ and substance. We had many compliments about the food.
We would also like to thank your staff for plying our guests with food and drink throughout the duration of the party, their courtesy, and the thoroughness of their clearing up.
A great job well done!
Thank you for your email, but more especially, thank you and your splendid team for making yesterday evening’s drinks party such a success. The food was delicious, and so obviously fresh and straight out of the oven. Trisha is particularly grateful for the clean state in which you left the kitchen.
Again, many thanks from both of us.
Thank you so much for all your help on saturday. The canapés were wonderful and so many people commented on them. Your Barman was very excellent and stayed until about 11.30!! And as for your kitchen helper…!! Your catering was superb thank you so much. You made it all so easy for me.
I never had a moment’s doubt about the success of Tuesday’s Reception in The Long Room, but the way it all worked out was beyond all expectations! The food was delicious and looked so pretty. Your staff were perfect and paced it all brilliantly. Even The Long Room acquired a certain chic with your tables and chairs, as well as those olive trees, and baskets of rosemary all along the window ledges.
A million thanks, Janie, for doing it all so beautifully and seamlessly.
All best wishes Liz
I just wanted to thank you for all your wonderful work on Sunday. The party was a great success and we have been inundated with letters from guests praising the delicious food. The staff were brilliant – really efficient and helpful as well as lovely to have around – and it was a real pleasure meeting you and doing business with you. You all made the day quite effortless and we shall certainly recommend you and ask you again when we next have a party.
Very best wishes
Jonathan and Anne
Once again, Janie, it was superb and your attention to detail is fantastic. Each mouthful more delicious than the next. Many, many congratulations and thank you.
