“I can highly recommend Tony, Ian and the team at Lauren’s Catering company. We have been working in partnership for over 2 years, and always receive a fantastic 100% from their customer service, always willing to make changes, and deliver at short notice, I would highly recommend Lauren’s for their day to day services, buffets and their excellent service."

Nine Group

“Lauren’s have provided our Free School Meal Service since its inception and manage to provide a fresh and healthy lunch for our children on a very small budget. We have been delighted with the service and their flexibility when it comes to our more ‘fussy eaters’. Their delivery is prompt on a daily basis and they are extremely accommodating when we have school visits etc. often dropping off the meals before 9.00am.

We would thoroughly recommend their service.”

Foxmoor Primary School

I have been using Lauren’s for about a year to provide catering for meetings and in house events.

I have found them to be helpful, reliable and efficient in all areas and would happily recommend them to others.

Rachael Wells - Rygor Commercials

I am most happy with their service. They can produce catering services even at weekends when we need them. I have always found that the food service that they provide has arrived in a timely manner, that there are very generous portions and it is always very fresh.

It is very easy to place orders over the telephone and the staff are very efficient and friendly. Overall, the service is very good indeed.
