"The level of generosity shown by Brend Hotels at the Castle Hill Jubilee Ball was astounding. Quite simply Nigel, you and your staff made the evening the success that it was."

"Just to say a huge thank you for catering at our sons’ wedding at Castle Hill. We cannot speak highly enough of Nigel, Elliot and all the staff, who looked after us with faultless precision and effort. So many guests said how wonderful the food was and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. James and Vikki have had such a great start to their marriage. Thank you again. With kind regards."

"The Dinner on the Saturday evening was an outstanding success and I was hugely impressed with Nigel and his team and how they coped with the dreadful weather conditions. Given that the food had to be prepared offsite it was delicious and many people commented on how good it was and how succulent and tasty the chicken was - well done to the chef."
Ian, Aston Martin Centenary Dinner at Castle Hill Devon
