At first we wanted a small reception for our daughter's christening, but when the number started to go above 50 we knew we had to employ a catering. Buffets by design was well reviewed and we decided to trust Mary and her stuff. They turned out to be not only an excellent catering service, by also understanding, professional and helpful. Our guests loved the food and there was enough and more for all of them. I will definitely recommend this service to family and friends and will use them in future for other occasions.
We used buffets by design for our end of year rugby awards night the service was fantastic very professional and we'll run the food is great very tasty and lots of it which was a bonus with a load of hungry rugby players. Even with the changes we made all done great we will be using this service again thank you again.
Hosted an annual Cousins Day and Buffets by Design and the friendly and helpful, Marie, catered for the event. The food was delicious with many comments on how nice it was. Marie couldn't have been more helpful. Five star service.
Marie organised the catering for my brother's funeral. Not an easy time for the family and she handled everything swiftly, calmly and professionally. The service on the day was excellent and the food much enjoyed by all the guests. Terrific all-round and we would highly recommend her.
Buffets by Design catered for My Fathers funeral wake. They were a delight to work with. The planning was perfect, the service thoroughly professional and most importantly, the food was delicious. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
As a local company needing a retirement buffet we wanted to use a local organisation to help us. We had seen one of your vans in the area so got in contact. We are glad we did as there were lots of good comments on the quality of the food. Thank you for the extremely professional and friendly service from start to finish. Best wishes for your future success. All the best from all of us at Access Insurance Services in Selsdon
I used Buffets By Design for a reception after my late mothers funeral, Marie and her team supplied a lovely spread together with tea and coffee served in proper cups and saucers. Their efficient service meant it was one less thing for me to worry about. Excellent price, I would happily recommend them to anyone.
Buffets by Design are the best caterers in Croydon. Friendly, helpful and can cater for any event. Have seen great reviews for all different types of events including golden weddings, 80th Birthday. Marie and the team are great just.
Having researched several companies via the internet and then comparing them with known caterers, we asked Buffet by Design to formalise a quote for a 100th birthday celebration in a church hall. Marie insisted on visiting the venue and the final menu was agreed. On the day they arrived with adequate time to set up with four attendess. We had many compliments about the quality of the food and the service was perfect. I would certainly use Buffet by Design again and recommend them to others!
Thank you so much to Marie and her team for the amazing food and service on our wedding day. From the start of the process over a year ago, Marie’s help in organising and planning the day was instrumental to its success – not just the food aspect but the timings and logistics as well. The food on the day and the team’s attention to detail was all amazing. They were the first to arrive at our reception venue and ensured that everything was in place for the guests arrival after the ceremony. I keep getting such good comments from guests on the food. My Nan in particular loved the canapés, I'm still reminiscing about the gravy on the sausage and mash and the sticky toffee pudding was one of the best some of the guests had tasted! Best wedding food we could have had in my opinion. Would highly recommend Buffets by Design!
Thank you so much for a wonderful display of buffet food for our Golden Wedding Celebration, and the care you took of us - couldn't fault you. So many people commented on the food and how good it was along with the service.
Buffets by design provided an excellent service for our sons dedication. They served a delicious buffet which we were able to choose from lots of options and adapted to specific requirements we had. Marie and her team were efficient and friendly and we would highly recommend them for any occasion.

Thank you and your lovely staff for helping to make yesterday's party such a success. It seems everyone enjoyed themselves and indeed there were many compliments not only about the quality of the food but also the efficiency of the service. Several took cards I noticed. Finally, good luck with the nomination. Let us know how you get on.

Thank you for the excellent quality buffet and courteous service, assisting us with providing refreshments at Mum's funeral service. I appreciated the sensitive, yet friendly, handling of the arrangements.
A big thank you to Marie and the Buffets by design team. We ran slightly late back to the venue and a quick call to Marie confirmed all was well and everything was set up waiting for us. Food was served quickly and efficiently and not only that but tasted fantastic. People went back for seconds and even thirds! The team were very friendly and discreet. I wanted to let you know that you were thanked during the speeches but you were very politely positioned outside the reception during this time. Marie always responded quickly during the planning process and made everything as simple as possible for us. Thank you from myself, my mum Jeni, the groom Charlie and all the family for all your hard work, as well as your travel advice for my Thailand trip P.s. The white chocolate cake was heavenly!

A little bit late but many thanks for last Wednesday, the buffet tea very much enjoyed by everyone. It was, by general consensus, a great success. They didn't want to go home, did they?

Just a quick note to say thank you to Janice, Liz and Jessica. The food was delicious and they were fantastic. It was a shame that the party decided to locate itself in the kitchen and get under your feet but perhaps it's a sign of a good party. Charlie, the birthday boy, had a great day. He was particularly impressed by Janice!

I wanted to thank you and your team for all you hard work of Saturday, and in the preparation. Many of our guest complimented me on the choice of caterers and said how much they enjoyed the food. Your team was so professional, willing and always on hand, carrying out their work discretely and with such good humour. The kitchen was cleaner when you left than before you started! Finding that you left us plenty for Sunday’s dinner in the fridge, washed the glasses and swept the kitchen floor was a much appreciated bonus, surely beyond the call of duty. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.
