Big Pan Paella Testimonials

Marcus and all his staff were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We had been let down by our original caterers and Marcus really did save the day!! He was very helpful and he was always available if we had any questions. He was thoroughly professional and very relaxed so really helped take the stress out of an important part of our wedding day.

On the day, Marcus and his staff were incredibly helpful and worked tirelessly throughout the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made sure our day ran amazingly smoothly. We can’t thank them enough for helping us out of a very stressful situation and then delivering such an amazing service on the day. Thank you so much. I would highly recommend The Big Pan Paella Company Ltd to anyone who wanted to hire caterers for any function – you will not be disappointed.’

Firstly I would like to say how wonderful the BPPC was. The food was delicious and commented on by everyone and absolutely perfect for the evening; also you, Tim and all your staff were just delightful; we all agreed that is rare to find such lovely serving staff, personable , friendly, helpful and nothing too much other; it went smoothly , thanks to all of you. Please thank Tim for sorting my lights with minimal fuss.( and huge relief for me) I do hope you get lots of business from the event for other parties and you helped to make it a truly special eveningThank you all again; it was lovely to meet you and to work with you.

PS you were right the chocolate cake was fab!


We just wanted to drop you quick line to say a big thank you to yourself and all your staff for really helping to make our wedding day wonderful. From the first time we contacted you your service was fantastic. Your staff went over and beyond in helping out with extra bits and pieces we did not expect you to do, from the minute you arrived helping set up the tea and coffee and preparing fruit, serving the canapés and welcome drinks, keeping the bride and groom well stocked with champagne whilst we were running around like lunatics, and of course providing a brilliant meal.

Everything you did for us was superb, your staff friendly and helpful, the service provided well above what we asked you to provide or indeed expected. All in all you really helped make our day, we couldn’t have asked any more of you, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to cater for any event.

Thank you again, and next time we’re throwing a big party you will be at the top of our list for caterers.

Thank you so much for everything you did for our Civil Partnership. We are so sorry we didn’t get chance to thank you all in person, we were going to make a public thank you to all involved but this didn’t come about. The food was great and we had some wonderful feedback about you all from our guests. We will definitely be recommending you/using you again in the future

Having The Big Pan Paella Company cooking, mixing drinks and serving at our party was a fabulous piece of theatre as well as lovely food.

Your staff was incredibly attentive, helpful and lovely people that is important if you’re having people in your home.

My wife and I were able to totally relax and enjoy the occasion, knowing that you were taking care of us and our guests, which was an absolutely wonderful experience.

Steve Grizzell

I found Big Pan Paella invaluable throughout the entire process of organising my wedding party. I found they struck a great balance between being friendly and professional, and really took the time to understand what we wanted for our event and used the experience to make constructive suggestions and ensure nothing was overlooked.

On the day itself, Marcus ensured everything ran absolutely smoothly, and together with the chef, all of the waiting staff and bar staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The paellas themselves were absolutely delicious and all of our guests were very impressed. We are very grateful to Big Pan Paella’s staff for all of their hard work in helping make our wedding party such a success.

Just wanted to put on record my appreciation for your (and your team’s) wonderful catering at my party. I can honestly say that I have had positive (enthusiastic even) comments from everyone who was there, not only about the food but also your professionalism, cleanliness and friendliness. The portable bar was also just right for the venue.

Simon Rebbetts

Thank you so much for the fabulous food on Saturday everyone said how much they enjoyed the jambalaya and the paella.

I’m sure you will receive more requests from Sheffield Park because your company really is so unique and so easy to work with.


Thank you so much for all your hard work. The waitresses were lovely and we have had so many good comments about the food. We had an amazing day and thank you for being a part of making it so memorable.
