Wedding Reception and Party Testimonials
A very short note to say a huge Thank you for looking after our family celebration today. You were so helpful in the planning and organising of the event, nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic, the service was second to none and everyone of our guests commented on what a wonderful lunch they had.
Everything far exceeded what we had hoped for the day so Thank you to all the team.
We will be back!
Jon & Lisa Gratte – Party of 27
My husband and I visited the revamped Thomspon at Darcy’s recently for our anniversary. We had a wonderful lunch sitting in the courtyard which is such a little sun trap! The staff were friendly, polite and knowledgeable as we quizzed them about ingredients, side dishes etc. The white asparagus velouté and the beef croquette for starters were both cooked to perfection. Our main course steaks were absolutely delicious and were accompanied by the best broccoli I’ve ever tasted. We were then surprised with chocolates and little message saying happy anniversary – how thoughtful that they’d remembered that I’d mentioned that on the phone! Another big plus for us is the use of local suppliers – all the beer was craft and from nearby areas. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Thompson St Albans – fabulous!

Just to say that the client had a really good time Sunday and they all thoroughly enjoyed the meal – so thank you to all involved.
Robina Curl – Client Entrainment
Suzanne and I would like you to pass on our thanks to Irene and all the team who helped to make our wedding breakfast an even more special occasion last Sunday, 8th February. Your support for our requests before the day, the presentation of the room, attention of the staff and of course not least food itself was of the highest quality. We are pretty sure Phil Thompson was in the kitchen and gave us the ” thumbs up”. The presentation of the canapés was beautiful and really set the scene for the rest of the day. Can I just single out the young female member of staff who looked after us throughout the meal. She was courteous, discreet and professional throughout. I am sorry I did not get a chance to ask her name.

Mick and I so much enjoyed the wedding meal that you provided for our daughter and new son-in-law yesterday that we wanted to say a special thank you to all of your staff involved. We heard nothing but compliments from the guests, one commenting that it was the best mass-catered meal he’d ever eaten. Irene and her team couldn’t have been more helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them, including being very tolerant of two very excited little bridesmaids who had a wonderful time and specially enjoyed the ice creams! Having enjoyed a meal at your restaurant previously we knew that the food would be good, and the whole evening more than lived up to expectations. We wish you every success and look forward to visiting you again in the future.
Kathy Ashton – Wedding Reception
Thank you so much for your hard work and that of your team. Glenys the coeliac guest asked me to add her appreciation particularly and the lunch couldn’t have been better or more pleasant. When I’ve recovered, I hope to write in an enthusiastic restaurant review! Best wishes.
Eva Lawrence – A la Carte
I’d just like to say thank you very much for a fabulous party for my parents golden wedding yesterday. They really enjoyed it and so did we all. The food was exceptional and your service was excellent. We felt you really looked after our every need including all the children both on the day and leading up to the event. The cake was wonderful and there was none left by the end of the day.
The room itself was perfect and we were very lucky with the weather to have the patio as well. Please pass on our commendations to all in the kitchen and we hope to come back someday soon to try some of your other delicious dishes. Many thanks for a fabulous celebration lunch.
Sally Davies – Golden Wedding Anniversary
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for making James’ birthday lunch such a special occasion. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the Thompson’s at Darcy’s experience from the time they arrived, food, wine and service. I think some more than others by the amount of wine that was consumed! We will be back in the near future – perhaps without the other 25 guests, just the two of us! With many, many thanks.
Gayle Ball – Birthday Celebration
