  • What can I say. Blue Pepper Catering attended Woodkirk Valley FC bonfire and firework display and I can not fault how easy David and his staff were to deal with. They go the extra mile to ensure everything is right. We will definitely have them back again and look forward to a long lasting relationship.

  • Having found Blue Pepper on the internet, it was ultimately a risk booking them for my wedding. They had good reviews and these proved to be very accurate. David and his team were fantastic, provided canapes when the guests arrived, a BBQ for the mains then a buffet for the evening. His staff also manned the bar ensuring my guests had drinks. There was loads of food, all of which was very tasty. I am one very happy customer!
