"Brian and Isabel of I and B Catering were extremely professional and helpful from start to finish.
The food was fresh, tasty and well presented - everyone commented on the home made soup in particular.
They really went out of their way to take care of our requirements and all for a very competitive rate.

Wedding reception 02/02/09 (Orroland Lodge)

Hi Brian and Isabel,
Thank you for providing us with our wedding meal and finger buffet
on the 2nd of February 2009. You worked so hard thoughout the day,
everyone loved the hearty food that you made, it really warmed us up
after we'd been outdoors on one of the coldest days of the year!

 One of our friends from Hong Kong had never tasted dauphinois potatoes before,
he was so impressed that he went back for seconds, and thirds,

and I think even fourths! My colleague told me later she
found it fascinating when you were explaining the different cheeses to
them, so thank you for taking the time to do that, is was important to
us to let our guests know that the food we chose had been locally
sourced where possible. Our favourite dish was definitely the chocolate
fondant, some people even said it was the best they'd ever tasted! We
were all so full after the delicious meal that we didn't touch the
finger buffet that evening, which worked out even better as it became
breakfast for our guests the next morning before everyone began their
long journeys home :)
Hope you like the photo I've attached.
Take care,
Ying Yan


Wedding reception 26/05/09 (Knockbrex castle)

Hi Brian
Your service was amazing. We were all overwhelmed by the quality and
the amount of food that you provided - if you weren't 300 miles away
I would use you all the time! The way that you got on with things and
then returned the next day to collect everything was also very much
appreciated. I would like to say thank you for all that you did and
if you ever want commendations please do not hesitate to contact me.
All the best


Wedding reception 30/06/09 (Auchenfranco Caravan & Camp site)
 Hi Brian & Isabel,
Thank you for the excellent food and service you provided for us on

our wedding day.
Every one of the guests commented on the quality of the food
(especially the home made cakes!) and we considered both the buffet and
the BBQ food to be a fantastic success.
It definitely made our day better knowing that our guests had

enjoyed the food.
We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone

looking for an excellent caterer.
Thanks again for everything,

Mr & Mrs Bradshaw

 Hi Brian and Isabel,

Thank you so much for, not only providing a curry buffet for us on the Friday

evening (for 14 guests),which was very tasty, but also for the 'build a buffet'

on the Saturday evening for 50 guests. 

We all had a great time at my parents Golden Wedding and

the quality of your food and service helped to make the whole event stress free.

Thank you also for helping us to choose which food we had and for the fact that

every time we had a query, you got straight back to us, which was especially helpful

as we live so far away.

I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all the very best for the future.

Many thanks

Birthday party (Dumfries, June 2014)

Thank you for a fabulous buffet and the great service. It made for a fantastic night.

Birthday celebration weekend (Orroland lodge, June 2014)


Hello Brian
This is just to say how pleased we were with the fork buffet you provided for our
35 guests at Orroland Lodge on 7 June 2014 and the delicious dinner you cooked for
12 guests the following evening.  It was a pleasure to work with you in planning the
weekend as the options on your website provided plenty of flexibility and ideas and
because you responded so positively and quickly to all my queries. 
We received lots of favourable comments from our guests about the quality and range of food provided and the presentation.
 You and Isabel also provided an excellent service on both days. 
We were particularly impressed with the way in which you responded to the
challenge of catering for our daughter, who has an allergy to dairy products. 
I don't think she has ever had as many choices of excellent dishes as she did that
weekend thanks to your considerable efforts to meet her needs. 
The carrot cake was particularly memorable - I think we may be back to you soon
for more of that!
Overall, you provided excellent food, service and value for money and we would
not hesitate to recommend you to others.
Many thanks
Liz and Steve
