Client reviews and testimonials

"Your private dining service proved a fitting end to our stay at Tomatin House - great food, professionally presented with seamless service.

A stress free end to our weekend house party"

(Shelia Taylor CBE, October 2021)

"Had a delicious, beautifully presented dining experience last night in celebration of two birthdays.  It was so enjoyable to be in the comfort of our own home with two close friends and be catered for so professionally.  No stress of worrying if the food would turn out well or slaving over a hot stove while your other half entertained the guests.  Just relaxed with the others with a gin while Alistair produced perfect plates both pleasing to the eye and palate."

"Alistair catered for my 40th birthday and I can honestly say we were bowled over by the meal we received.  As a group who have been to many fine dining restaurants over the years, the 4 course dinner was as good as we have had.

The ingredients were fresh and local and seamless on every plate.  The rapturous applause given at the end of the meal couldn't begin to sum up how much we enjoyed it.

Alistair also provided a BBQ the following day, which was delicious.  We will definitely ask Alistair to cater for us again, if he has availability, which I would assume would be in rare supply from what we have experienced.  

Thank you again Alistair and your serving helpers.  You really made my birthday special"

"Thank you for an excellent meal this weekend for my sister’s hen party, perfect from start to finish.

 The chocolate fondant with homemade honeycomb and ice cream was a particular highlight!"

"Alistair catered for a surprise dinner party (for 4) for my brother’s 70th birthday. Alistair took time to discuss the

menu choices with us, and we were certainly not disappointed.

Every mouthful was a delight from canapés to dessert. Then came the homemade Scottish tablet - what a joy. Looking forward to using Alistair’s services again.

Would recommend, without hesitation, Personal Dining Services Moray"

(Ricky & Lorraine Somerville, September 2019)

"Fantastic food for a special 70th birthday celebration at Eagles Nest, Boat of Garten. Three generations and everyone from the youngest to the oldest commented that it was the best meal they have had for a very long, long time.

Would highly recommend Alistair as he is very professional, really nice guy and did a fabulous job.  The kitchen was left perfectly, he menu suggestions were spot on given the many 'picky' requirements"

(Margaret Cassie, July 2021)

"This was a truly excellent meal that Ali and Chantall provided for my 40th birthday. The food and the service were faultless. I can't recommend them highly enough and anyone looking for that touch of class for a special occasion, large or small, PDS Moray will certainly deliver. Thanks for helping to make my 40th year one to remember"

(Graeme McColl, 2017)
