Hi Dee,

Would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the amazing spread that was put on last night!

Your team were fantastic and lovely and were so good to deal with. The food was great and we had so many of our farmers commenting and asking about where the spit roast was from!

Do you have any business cards or a print out we could display in store to show our farmers?

Thank you again and will be in touch for our next big event!!

HI Dee, just wanted to message you to say thank you  and please pass on our thanks to the staff who worked our wedding.

Your staff were most excellent, they were polite, friendly and professional.  Everyone loved the food and we have plenty of leftovers to feed visitors during the long weekend which has been awesome and dam handy.

Once again, great food and excellent people working the event.  We are happy to recommend to anyone and be a reference should you like one

take care


Karl, 2022

To Dee and Team,

I don’t really have the words to express how grateful we are but I’m going to give it a try! Not only was the food absolutely amazing but the service was beyond anything we could have ever expected. The ladies were so incredibly kind and organized and just went above and beyond. We didn’t have enough containers for leftovers due to a number of cancelations for covid and the ladies said no worries we will sort it! They washed other containers we had and used some incredible packing skills to ensure we could take every single bit of food home and not waste anything. Everyone at the wedding commented on how delicious the food was but also how lovely the ladies were, going round making sure everyone had enough food or encouraging them to have another helping, it was just wonderful. So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We will be highly recommending your company to anybody in search of a caterer.

Yours sincerely,

Steph and Glen Hurst

Steph & Glen Hurst, June 2022

Hi Dee

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for the catering at our son’s wedding on Sunday.

The quality of the meat, salads and dessert was lovely, the quantities were very well judged. Your team obviously knows what they are doing! My vegetarian sister was very happy with her lasagne, and I really enjoyed the gluten free bread roll and dessert that was provided for me!

The young men serving and clearing were very well mannered and handled everything perfectly.

We couldn’t have been happier with how the catering was done, and would be happy to use Spit Roast Company again.

Warm regards

Linda Williams

Linda William, June 2022

My wife and I just wanted to pass on our appreciation towards you and your staff for catering to our wedding last Saturday. There were no issues, the food was excellent, we barely noticed your staff were there, and we thought they were very professional. So we thank you for your services and if our gratitude could be passed onto your staff members who catered to us as well we would much appreciate that.

Kind regards
Sean and Maggie

Sean & Maggie, September 2021

Just a note to thank you for the lovely food and fantastic service provided last night. The ladies were just so nice and the evening went really well. The food was great and it all flowed seamlessly.

We have used your company twice now and both times you have exceeded expectations.

Many thanks

Nicky MacLachlan, November 2021

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you to you and your team for a great dinner last night. Everyone was really impressed with the choice and the ladies who came were awesome.

I don’t think there was much left at all in the end. I guess when most of the group are guys it was expected lol.

It was lovely not to have to worry about cooking anything or clearing up at the end!


Anyway please pass on our thanks and hope you have a good Xmas

Sharon, November 2021

Thanks so much for organising a delicious hot roll meal for us on Friday night!  It went down a treat and meant we didn’t have to worry about feeding the troops as it was all taken care of so professionally and seamlessly for us!

I have to say that Charlotte and Livi were amazing ambassadors for Spitroast.  They were such lovely, friendly, helpful young ladies with incredible manners and gorgeous personalities.  We had to give them a hug at the end as we were so chuffed with the amazing service they provided throughout the whole process, from the introductions through to the goodbyes at the end.  We felt everything was in the best hands and we didn’t have to worry about a thing!  Nice work Spitroast and thank you!

Jackie Pye, December 2021

I just wanted to give you some feedback regarding yesterday’s meal , everything was absolutely fantastic , everyone complimented the food saying how nice it was and plenty left over . Your staff were all excellent / friendly / on time /  professional  . We have nothing but praise for your whole organisation  .

I know people are very quick to moan when they are not happy about something so I always try to compliment when the food & service are excellent .

From behalf of the Canterbury Mustang Owners club , Thank you

Joan McKinley, February 2022

Good morning Dee

The food was outstanding and I received so many complimentary remarks that I really wanted to pass it on to you.  The pork was lovely and our carvers had their mouths full of crackling lol.

The mixture of salads was excellent and their was something for everyone’s tastes.  We have so much left over that we have it all at work now and are eating it for lunches.  So once again thanks and I am sure you will get jobs from our crew over time.


Merry Christmas to you and your team.

Just a brief email to provide some feedback on our BBQ luncheon on 20 December.


The 2 staff arrived on time and immediately started to prepare. They served the meal on time and cleaned up promptly.


In our opinion the meal was first rate and this view was supported by the number of our guests who unsolicited commented in a most positive way about the food.


The 2 staff were well turned out, polite, accommodating and very professional.


We will not hesitate to use your organisation at some future event.


Many Thanks

Rhonda Upton

Hey Dee, Nicky and the Spitroast team

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team for last Thursday night’s catering service.


It was an outstanding meal, as usual, and having the help of Charlotte and Helen was AMAZING! I had been sooo busy that I hadn’t had the chance to give this particular event the time and attention it needed, so the fact that your team, Charlotte and Helen were there to pull me through on the day was fantastic. Please pass on my sincere thanks to them.


Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I look forward to working with you again next year!


Kind regards

Thanks again.


Hi Dee,

We had your catering at Lacebark on Friday 22nd, and I just want to drop you a note to say thank you so much!

The food was fantastic!

If you could mass product that gravy you could sell it by the bucket load.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything you put out.  Thank you for delivering an amazing meal and thank you for leaving all the left overs. It was all dished up for the BBQ the following day and everything left was devoured.

Thank you,


Hi Dee,

I just wanted to get in touch and say a huge thank you to you and your team for catering our wedding.

The food was absolutely delicious and we had really positive feedback from a wide range of guests (from toddlers, to vegetarians and vegans, to meat eaters).

Only slightly less importantly, your staff on the day were friendly, professional and efficient. They contributed to the positive vibes and again, I got lots of positive comments about them, particularly the man in charge of the spit (sorry I didn’t catch his name).

Finally, cheers to you for making the arrangements really easy. It wasn’t the closest or most accessible venue and I appreciate you working with me to make it happen.

Thank you once again. We will definitely be recommending you guys to other people. Cheers,


Hi Dee,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the dinner on Saturday night and for your communications during the last 2 years with our event happening.

Thank you for helping make our event so special on Tuesday. The food was amazing, people are still talking about it. I especially like that you provided a vegan option as I hadn’t even thought of that, it was very considerate.

You make the best crackle I’ve ever eaten, and thank you for my gift.

Hi Karen

Just a quick email to let you know that everyone at our client’s place appreciated that food was so delicious on Friday. Vegetarian lasagne was good too. I was lucky that the vegan person did not turn up so I got to try chef’s rice and red lentil curry – and you should pass on to him that it was great.

Thanks for organising it so well and for the lovely food. Spitroast will be our caterers from now on 🙂
