  • Peter Butt - July 2017
    'I would like to thank you for a terrific catering job you provided. Without exception, everyone commented on how tasty everything was, and especially the canap├ęs. Even my youngest son, who doesn't eat anything he doesn't recognise ate loads. So thanks for a warm, friendly and professional service, I cannot recommend you highly enough.'

  • Laura - Corporate Lunch
    'Thank you so much for this week, everything has been perfect.'


  • Emma - Dinner Party
    All the girls said how delicious all the food was and the cheese boards and dessert trios were definite hits! I think you also delivered a great service at good value and it was fabulous to be left with a kitchen that was even cleaner when you left than when you arrived.


  • Burns Nights Supper
    I would like to thank you for last night. The meal was excellent and the way that the extra numbers were catered for was very professionally handled. Your staff were excellent as well and you must have been very proud with the way they coped


  • Hi Teresa,
    I just wanted to pop you over a quick email to say thank you so much for your Sunday. Everything went so well, and you were absolutely great from start to finish. It's always a bit strange having people coming into your home, but you are so lovely and felt like one of the family! Even Grandma loved you, and she's a tough woman to please!

    Thank you again, and I will certainly be passing on your details to anyone who asks!

    I would highly recommend Teresa and her team for their professionalism, friendliness and delicious food.

    We were a big group for a typical dinner party, but the presentation and taste of the food was at a really high standard. I also liked the thoughtful added touches like bread, balsamic and olive oil, as well as neatly packing away the left overs for us.

  • Hi Teresa,

  • Wedding - Sopley ManorDear Teresa,
    A big big thank you to you and your team for the effort you went to for our wedding at Sopley MIll on the 2nd November. The food was amazing. Everyone has commented on how good it was and we have even converted some non-Chinese lovers. Please pass our thanks to Chef Lam, his wife and the team also.
    We are grateful for all the effort you went to organising the reception drinks, toasts, table decorations (which looked fantastic), evening buffet and the way you directed and organised the day smoothly. Nothing was to much for you and it was really appreciated.
    We wish you well in the future and thank you once again.
    Kind regards Gemma

  • Christening Party - BournemouthThank you & your team for all the hard work. The food and drinks service were fabulous, as was the quality of the food!

You would never have known you didn't have a separate kitchen out the back!!

  • Wedding Catering - BournemouthExceptional local food, wonderful service and extremely adaptable to all our requirements made for the wedding of our daughter. It was very successful and enjoyable. South Coast Parties sound too good to be true but they really were! We highly recommend them.

  • Catering for a Special Birthday Celebration - ChristchurchIt was a special birthday for my wife this year and Peggy wanted to have a party with a few close family & friends; good food, wine and to dance the night away. we opted to hire a hall, use outside caterers and we went for South Coast Parties to provide a buffet meal. The food and service from Teresa and team were first class. She visited us at home, agreed the menu together and even created a new dish Peggy was keen to try -organised a food tasting so we were quite happy with the new dish. Teresa also visited the venue to check the logistics for this special night. Finally, a few days before the event, she visited us again to step through the timing for the evening to ensure everything was just soThe party was a huge success, and ran like clockwork. We had a Hawaiian theme which added colour and helped break the ice. Having caterers and bar staff meant that we were free to spend time with our guests.

  • Hen Party weekend catering - BournemouthRecently we visited Bournemouth for a weekend away, a total of 23 girls! South Coast parties provided our catering for the full duration and I can say we were most definitely not disappointed. The Chinese banquet was amazing, great food and lots of it. Andy & Michelle did a great job with the BBQ and again, food was delicious and plenty to go around! Thank you Teresa for rescuing us all on the Sunday from our hangovers with a fantastic full English breakfast. South Coast Parties are professional, fantastic to deal with and ensured that everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend!

  • Wedding Anniversary Catering - Ashley HeathOur recent Ruby Wedding Anniversary party held in our garden was such a happy occasion with little stress (apart from worrying about the weather, which did turn out fine) thanks to Teresa Sillars and her South Coast Parties team. The canapes, on arrival of our guests and delicious buffet lunch and drinks all served in a friendly and professional way. We were delighted to focus our attention on our guests and not worry that the superb catering was taken care of. 34 family and friends did sit down to lunch in the sunshine.

  • Wedding Reception - DamerhamFrom our first meeting with them, we were glad we had chosen them. Although things changed a few times, Teresa was always accommodating. The price was well within our budget. Teresa came over to help us set up the night before. On the day the staff were well dressed, polite and always there when you needed them. The food was well prepared and tasted great. It was nice not to have to clear anything up! We would have no hesitation to recommend South Coast Catering to anyone or use them again.

  • Rotary CateringAlthough catering is provided for us on a regular basis, with an excellent choice and variety of menus, the willingness to 'go the extra mile' was very much appreciated when we decided to hold a South African themed evening. Although a traditional dish from that country was chosen it was prepared to a very high standard and much enjoyed by the 45 people who attended despite having to use a kitchen with very basic facilities. I cannot speak too highly of both the professionalism and personal touch that goes into the catering provided by Teresa, Rita and the staff. We look forward to many years of enjoyable and well thought out menus.

  • Wedding - PooleWe held an informal wedding reception at home for around 30 guests.Teresa and her team were providing a mini hog roast and small barbeque, with acold buffet, a variety of salads, desserts and cheese board. The food was alllocally sourced and of exceptional quality, and all the food was prepared bythe team and where needed cooked on site. The profiterole tower wasparticularly impressive. All our guests were looked after very well for theduration. We were also very impressed that as food was brought in afterserving, it was instantly wrapped and refrigerated - hardly any waste and wewere able to eat what was left for the rest of the week. Afterwards the floorsand work surfaces were cleaned down, all the crockery and cutlery packed up andtaken away, in fact you would not have known that food was served at all. Allin all we enjoyed very good quality, value for money and friendly and welcomingservice. We have no hesitation in recommending them and would certainly invitethem again if an opportunity arises.
