Ralph, I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to
Ralph, I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to you at the exhibition and watch and taste your demo. I bought your last recipe book and a pan. It was not only great to talk to someone whose ethics I embrace totally, but also to sample some of your food which was fantastic, which makes me sad for those who haven't embraced wild food (More for us I suppose). Unfortunately I'm located in Bucks so will not get a chance in the near future to frequent The Butlers Pantry. Look forward to our paths crossing again and talking.

We just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for helping make Saturday such a great day for the both of us. The food was great - and helped make the day so memorable for everyone involved. Once back from the honeymoon we'll send a more formal thank you - but we hope to come by the Butler's Pantry in the future and experience more of your wonderful cuisine.

We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a massive big thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful food and service you provided for our wedding on 30th August. We have had so many compliments from our guests saying how wonderful the food was and how helpful your staff were. All of your support right from the first meeting has been fantastic and we cant thank you enough for the part you played in making our wedding day so special. We will hopefully see you again as we plan on visiting the restaurant so we can taste your wonderful food again

Thank you so much for adding a touch of elegance with your delicious and well presented food on our wedding day. The guests were very complimentary of the food and the professionalism of yourself and your team. Such a joy and pleasure to work with.
Two weeks on and just coming down to earth. What...more
Two weeks on and just coming down to earth. What an amazing day which was made so special by you and your team Ralph. Our Wedding Day was going to be Low Key, Small Scale, but it seemed to develop a life of its own and eventhough the numbers remained small the expectations developed into "Nothing but the best" from my wedding dress, the flowers the rings, the drink, everything. We had chosen the Butlers Pantry with only the experience of a lovely breakfast on one other occasion because it was local and Ralph seemed very personable and professional. Fortunately our home was able to accomodate our 31 guests, but I did worry that having the wedding reception on site might be rather stressful. I needn't have worried. The day before the wedding Ralph and team delivered his equipment with no fuss. On the day the first we saw of them was as we returned from the church as the smartly dressed staff quietly and professionally served us the Champagne and beautiful Canapes. At this time my brain had disappeared after the nerves of the service but fortunately there was Roy the Master of Ceremonies who gently steered the proceedings and us so the everything flowed smoothly from the meal to thespeache. It was wonderful to have somebody to rely on to know the right thing to do at the right time so we didn't have to think of anything except enjoying ourselves, whilst the waiters quietly, efficiently and politely served the meal. We did expect the food to be good with Ralphs reputation, but we were not prepared for the high standard that we received. My expectations are very high because I work in hospitality in a High profile area and I have to say that the quality of the food was of a superior standard which could have graced the best tables. Our guests were thrilled and so were we. I have never had such a wonderful meal on a large scale. So thank you Ralph and helpers for playing such a large part in creating one of the best days we have ever had.
