A great start to the Summer
Apologies for the lack of posts over the last couple of months. The CCC team have had a very busy start to the Summer season of catering.
May was an awesome month which included our busiest week of the year (so far) with 19 back-to-back events from Saturday to the following Sunday. A total of around 1250 guests catered for. A huge well done to everyone that made it happen.
June included some great private parties and celebrations: an engagement; a festival themed 40th; a large charity ball and… of course… more weddings. Plus, we had the added excitement of catering for several of our Newmarket-based clients down at Royal Ascot.
July included the wonderful July Sales at Tattersalls in Newmarket. One of the many bloodstock auction sales held throughout the year. CCC are principal caterers to Tattersalls and operate the two main restaurants on the complex: the Buffet Room and the Tattersalls Restaurant. It is always a pleasure to cater at Tattersalls. It’s such a unique and prestigious venue and the grounds looked amazing for their July Sales, a huge credit to the hardworking gardeners and paddock staff. The July Week in Newmarket is a great week for the town with the Moet et Chandon Festival at the July Racecourse. Many of our clients host parties for their owners visiting the Sales and the races and we had the pleasure of catering for two large events at Newsalls Stud, including a fundraising evening for the National Horseracing Museum
Looking ahead to August…. we have a full diary of bookings with weddings at Chippenham Park, Tattersalls, Smeetham Hall Barn, the Granary Barns plus several large private marquee weddings, working with our friends at Highfield and Cambridge Marquees
It’s a our busiest time of year with long days of early starts and late finishes but we do what we love; and love what we do. There’s no a better feeling than knowing you have played a part in making someone’s dream a reality.
“Tasha and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you both and all of the team at Crown. You truly went above and beyond what we expected and all of our guests could not speak highly enough of you!”
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for Friday night. The feedback regarding the food was extremely good. My mother in law said it was the best food she had ever had at a cocktail party (and she has been to quite a few!)”
“We’d also like to thank you for providing such an amazing service on the day. Everyone loved the food, we had so many comments on how much they enjoyed it. The service that the catering staff provided was exceptional. Please could you tell James how grateful we are to him, for the brilliant job he did on the day.”
“Just a quick note to say thank you so much to Sara and everyone for looking after us at chippenham park. The food was great and we had many comments about the beef from our guests! Sara really made sure Laura and I were looked after and drinks topped up throughout the day so please pass on our thanks. She made us feel special!”
