Thank you for such incredible service from Milsom Catering

Dear Alex and Ian,

I wanted to say a personal thank you to you all for the incredible service pre event, and first class service, food and hospitality on the day!

We truly couldn’t have done it without you!

I’d like to say a very, very special THANK YOU to Sarah – she is incredible.  Never phased, always professional, concise, exceptionally well organised and a wonderful person to work with.

Her team on the day were fantastic and guided by a great leader!

Thank you!

Kindest regards


A special afternoon tea at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall

I was given a voucher for my birthday for your afternoon tea. My son and I came over yesterday afternoon to use it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon, the food was delicious especially the scones and we enjoyed tasting different flavour teas. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and the waitress had time to talk to us. Everything helped to make it a special occasion so please pass our thanks to your staff.

Maybe I can drop hints for my next birthday when I reach 85.

thank you


Birthday celebrations in The Mess, Milsoms Kesgrave Hall

Good afternoon

We would like to thank you all so much for the hard work put in on Saturday evening, in the Mess Room, for my husband’s 70th Birthday celebrations. It was a resounding success and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening – the venue, the food, the drinks, the waiting staff and the ambience created by Harvey’s affable personality.  His attention to detail, which appeared effortless, was outstanding (he is certainly an asset to your team).

An incredible evening that left us all with happy memories of an amazing dinner party at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall.

Everything we could have wished for and we would certainly recommend.

Kind regards


Service, food and atmosphere were perfect as usual

Good morning,

I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for Saturday evening.  The service, food and atmosphere was perfect as usual.

I’m not sure of the name of the lady that was with us on Saturday evening, but please pass on my thanks to her especially as she did a great job and we didn’t want for anything.

Thanks as always.


80th Birthday Celebration at Milsoms in Dedham

Dear Team

Just wanted to say a big thank you for working with us for my Mum’s 80th birthday celebration at the weekend.  We had family come in from Bedfordshire and London along with locals from Essex and every one of them commented about the lovely environment and great service we had.

Everything worked out just perfectly – thank you!

Kind regards



Huge thank you for 18th Birthday party in Mr G’s

Good afternoon,

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at Milsoms – in particular Sam & James, and the wonderful chef/s behind the scenes for our daughter Issy’s 18th birthday dinner on Sunday 27th May.

The dining room had that Wow! factor as the guests arrived, and the pretty courtyard was simply perfect for a lovely warm evening. Issy had a fantastic time, all the guests were beautifully looked after, and the food was superb – the guests all commented!

Thank you all very much!

Kind regards,

A & WH
