Hazel and her team created us a splendid three-course menu plus cheeseboard for a family celebration. The whole service from booking to plating up was incredibly professional. The communication on menu choices was fluid throughout and we came up with a menu that was gluten-free, shellfish allergy safe and pregnancy friendly! Having the dinner party covered allowed us to really relax and enjoy the evening without anyone having to cook or wash up- we highly recommend this service for a special occasion. The food was both prepared and presented beautifully, so credits to the chef!
Niki Hamilton, Ampney St Peter, Cirencester
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Hazel for catering for my mother's 80th birthday celebration. From initial contact with Hazel through to the big day, all communication was excellent. The menu choice was extensive, and we were delighted with the service. Hazel is very friendly and made us feel in safe hands from the moment she arrived. The dinner service timing was perfect - nobody felt rushed between courses. We could not fault the quality of the food and everything was cooked perfectly. I would not hesitate to use In The Frame catering for any future occasions in the area

"Hazel and her team provided the catering for our intimate wedding dinner. The evening was fabulous, the food out of this world, and all 3 of the team contributed to memories that will last forever. Our guests commented on the outstanding quality of the food, and I would not hesitate to recommend you"
Wayne and Laura Usher, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
Just wanted to thank you, and Dave and Mo, for the fantastic meal you provided for us all last night. The food was very tasty and plentiful and the friendly, quiet and professional service given by Dave and Mo contributed to a memorable family occasion for us all. Should we ever be looking to arrange a similar reunion in the Cotswolds we'll certainly come knocking on your door again.
Rob Hill, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire
'Hazel and co were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I had a lot on my plate to organise and she did her utmost to provide great and chirpy service. They were able to accommodate and advise me when I was indecisive, and were patient with me when I mixed up the dates! The food itself was absolutely delicious, everyone loved it and we are a group of women of varying degrees of pickiness. Can't rate this service more, value fabulous and will go out of my way to work together again. Thanks Hazel and team!'
Debbie Cass, Cotwold water park, Gloucestershire
'We had the pleasure of Hazel from In the Frame catering cooking for us for a special birthday celebration and the food was amazing! Fresh ingredients (lots of them homegrown) made the most delicious 3 course meal. We are all still talking about the lemon & thyme roast potatoes!! Professional and friendly at all times-the experience with In The Frame is one we will definitely repeat. Can't recommend highly enough.'
Cath Davies Moretons Bredon, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire
A massive Thank you.The food was amazing and prepared to the finest detail. We couldn't have hoped for any better. Your calm and organised manner was amazing on the day.
The canapes were wonderful and beautifully presented despite having to endure a short drive up to the woodland glade. The wedding food was delicious and so many people complimented you on the day and after by mentioning it to us. The puddings were so good - I have never tasted such a good fig and almond tart - I had to hold myself back from consuming too many.
I tried to keep hold of the left overs but too many people wanted to take them with them.The freshness of the food and the timing of the day were just perfect and made our wedding day a very special day. Excellent food equals very happy people !Thank you for all your time and support with everything you did and I am in awe of how you managed to put on such a spread while juggling a 1 year old.
Lucy and Gary Roberts
Thank you to both of you for a superb meal and service on Saturday evening, which was to celebrate a double birthday for eleven people across three generations
. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal which was truly excellent - and the cheeseboard was spectacular!

I booked the services of In The Frame Catering to provide a top-quality, romantic meal for my girlfriend and myself, where I planned to propose to her. I elected to set up a romantic dining table under the stars, in a field over-looking the river Severn.At first I thought that it would be difficult to find a Chef willing to cook a meal outside, with no electricity, however, Hazel was fantastic at dealing with my rather unusual request, and making it work exactly the way I had imagined in my mind.I was provided with a highly talented and experienced Chef, who cooked a wonderful 5 course meal, as well as his wife, who provided a restaurant-quality waitress service throughout the evening, making us feel like we were dining in the Ritz, whilst having the most beautiful dinner-table view imaginable.
Our 5 courses included some very exotic items, such as Artichoke and Truffle Oil soup, with Foccacia bread, Grilled Sea Bass, with ribboned Zucchini, and a gorgeous white chocolate and passion fruit cheese cake. The quality of the food and the taste really was out of this world.As well as providing excellent food and table service throughout the evening, the Chef and Waitress were also kind enough to help redecorate the field dining location after the wind had completely flattened the marquees I had set up, just an hour before my girlfriend and myself were due to arrive. Despite the wind, upon arrival, it looked as romantic as I could ever imagine. The waitress was also kind enough to take photos throughout the evening, to capture the special moment when I proposed to my girlfriend. I am very happy to say that she said yes!I couldn't recommend In The Frame Catering highly enough. The quality of food and service provided was second to none, and I can honestly say it was the best culinary and dining experience of my life.
Christopher Tutton, Longley, Gloucestershire
It all went really well thanks - the food was delicious and David was brilliant. Food was served up on time and he couldn't have been more helpful in terms of cleaning up after himself. He was great, food was great. Everyone was very happy.
Lucinda Wright, Lower Swell, Gloucestershire
We had a lovely time on Saturday thank-you. Food was wonderful and everything went well. Such a treat to have dinner prepared and served to us and no washing up to do at the end!
Thanks for everything
Nicola Ball, North Nibley, Gloucestershire
Thank you so so much for the wonderful dinner you put on for us last weekend. The food was absolutely delicious and the service, absolutely impeccable. How on earth you prepared dinner for 17 in a conventional kitchen I'll never know and yet some how it was cleaner when you left than when you arrived!
I also really appreciated your assistance in the planning of the meal, it was really helpful to have your thoughts and suggestions and I got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. I really was delighted with the entire experience and I know that our bride to be thought it was fantastic too.
The only bit of constructive criticism that I heard was that I think some of the girls were a little intimidated by the portion sizes and felt bad when they couldn't finish it all. It must be a difficult balancing act but I don't think any one would have minded if the portions were a little smaller.
All in all I was hugely impressed with the food and services that you provided and I would be happy to recommend in the frame catering to anyone.
Amy McGrain, Uley, Gloucestershire
Thank you so much for the delicious dinner you provided us with. We had an extremely lovely evening and this was manly due to the fact that we didn't have to care for a thing but enjoy the food and the company. And we did indeed enjoy the food. Your recommendations were all fantastic and the five course menue was very well chosen and absolutely luscious. All ingredients were fresh and well composed. From the starter (aspargous, frisee and poached egg) to the creamy soup (butternut squash), from the main course (perfect beef filet with a fantastic homemade sauce bernaise and fresh vegetables) to the dessert (eton mess - what to say more?): it was all done with love and perfection. We have all been really happy that we found you to cook for us that night and we can highly recommend you and your work to everyone who wants to make this experience.Your always smiling personality made as feel totally at home.
Thank you very much!
Carla Miltz, Chedworth, Gloucestershire
The dinner party on saturday was incredible. You, Kate and Mo were a fabulous team. The meal was superb, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. The beetroot and goats cheese tart was beautiful as was the ravioli. The chicken was so succulent and tasty and the ladies who had the tagine said it was lovely and spicy.I think I really didn't need to order extra veg as you were so generous with your portions. Don't worry though, they were taken home to make into soup, add to casserole and to make bubble and squeak!!!The desserts were fabulous. I was very dissappointed in myself as I was unable to quite finish my chocolate pudding, something that is very rare for me!!!
Mandy Lelli, Worcester, Worcestershire
Thank you so much for such a brilliant afternoon on Saturday - the girls all said how great it was! The meal was delicious as well, thank you!
