having bought beautiful butties and pies from Crabtrees over the years, we recently asked them to cater our 25th Wedding celebration (70 guests). The food was fabulous and really well presented and all the guests commented on how tasty everything was. Excellent value for money and thoroughly recommended.

The food is all completely home made and the pies are made with only the best quality ingredients, and the range of fillings is imaginative and clever and they... More
