"Andre and Jane have just catered for us at our woodland wedding and we can’t recommend them enough! Their professionalism and attention to detail is incredible!
They went out of their way to provide exactly what we wanted for our special day and it was just perfect. Their food is immense and is by far the best smoked bbq food we have ever tasted, so much so our guests are still talking about it now.
As a supplier, they are some of the friendliest people you will come across and kept us in the loop about everything starting from the day we sat down together for our initial meeting right up until the day before the wedding!
We built up such a great relationship with them both and now consider them as friends!
Thank you soooo much again for making our day magical!
Lots of love"

"Absolutely brilliant, designed a wedding breakfast that was perfect for our needs, went out of their way to help on the day and the food was sublime. Comments from our guests included 'I can’t believe how good the food was' and 'that was the best meat I have ever eaten' – can’t recommend enough! Lucy x"

"Cardona & Son recently catered a corporate event for me. All of the guests were really pleased with the food and the 12-hour beef brisket was beautiful.
They were easy to deal with and the food was really good quality on the day.
Thanks Andre and Jane, I hope I can book you again soon."

"Cardona & Son were simply awesome. Working with smaller numbers they simply got stuck in and made it work. Plus added value they stayed longer on the day than planned due to traffic and weather which went against us! They hung on in here for us!
Awesome food, everyone loved it! Book them!!"

"The best darn food I've ever tasted. Brisket sent from heaven and ribs to die for!"

"I was looking for someone to cater a party at home. I initially planned a hog- or lamb-roast, but then some friends waxed lyrical about Cardona & Son whose food they had tasted at a country fair in Cambridge.
I set far more store by personal recommends than so-called independent websites, furthermore, I had the opportunity to sample the food myself when these same friends had Cardona & Son in to cater for their own party.
I was slightly concerned about how they would manage to get all their kit into my suburban garden via a 1 metre wide access – somewhat different to an open field, but Andre Cardona was good enough to make a site visit and declared it not to be a problem – they have different serving facilities depending on the venue.
The food was excellent – choices were brisket, pork or veggie for 60 people. (You specify to them the proportions of each). Their technique is to prep and smoke it offsite before the event. It’s all brought in on the day and served up in brioche buns with coleslaw and various sauces. Of course, loads of people went up for seconds – and thirds.
The best part is the leftovers now in my freezer, slowly being whittled away.
I would definitely have them again."

"Wonderful friendly service providing tasty high-quality food. The feedback from the parents and children at our fundraising event was 100% positive. We would definitely use Cardona & Son again."

"We couldn't recommend Cardona & Son highly enough, they have been an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish and they couldn't have been more accommodating of our requests. They are both such lovely people and exactly the kind of people you want to be part of your special day. The food is out of this world, and all of our guests commented on how delicious it was, the portion size was incredible! We are so happy we picked them, they helped make our day extra special - #BBQlove all the way!"
- Laura and Darren
"The Cardonas catered for our Barn Dance for 200 people with a fantastic slow-cooked barbecue. nothing was too much trouble and the event went without a hitch. The meat was truly amazing and our guests couldn't get enough of it, though the quantities were so generous that no-one went hungry. Service was great and I would recommend these friendly and efficient people for any event you might be planning."
- Paul and Liz Wallace
"Cardona & Son recently catered for a family party we held & they were fantastic! They provided an extremely professional, efficient & friendly service and were great in fitting in around what we wanted for our do-aswell as providing bunting & boards to fit in with our festival theme! The food was delicious & thoroughly enjoyed by everyone!! The hog roast, definitely added that 'special something' to the party- we will definitely be booking them for our next event & would recommend them to cater for anyone having a similar celebration!!"
- J Weaver Hitchin
"Andre made a fantastic hog roast, the occasion was our engagement party with a hundred people attending. The cooking started in the morning and by early evening our garden was filled with wonderful aromas. To accompany the meat, Andre made fantastic salads and dressings, also a delicious homemade chutney. Everyone loved it, even my teenage children... we just need an excuse to have another party now."
