“The communication from Pinnies and Pearls was faultless. We were totally comfortable before the day that the afternoon tea and service would be perfect and we weren't disappointed. Everyone loved the kid's boxes - a few people said they were really great because they kept the kids entertained. The service on the day was very attentive and everyone had as much of everything that they could eat (and more). The amount provided was very generous and we still had lots left over the day after, which was polished off quickly by visiting family!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday night. Everyone really enjoyed the tea and we got loads of compliments on it. I was particularly blown away by the flowers on the table, you really went above and beyond.
I'm now trying to find a reason for another event so that we can have another of your fabulous teas!” Helen, East Keswick, June 2019

"Pinnies and Pearls served the most delicious afternoon tea at our son's wedding. From the sample afternoon tea some months before the wedding to the wedding day itself they gave us the most professional service and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodated all our special requests perfectly. All our guests loved the beautiful china, tablecloths and napkins and lots of us wished we took sugar to have an excuse to use those sugar tongs. The sandwiches were delicious and the savoury tartlets scrumptious, as for the cakes ...... Each one a work of art. We'll be looking for an excuse to use you again and thank you for helping to make it a very special day." Clare, Whixley, July 2015

"My sister and I were looking for the right people to cater for a special tea party to celebrate our mother's 90th birthday. Vicky and Clare came to discuss it and we were most impressed with their approach and expertise, but that was nothing compared to their professionalism on the day. The immaculate table settings with beautiful china, silver, flowers and embroidered lace table linen, presentation and taste of the food, extra details such as jasmine or mint tea served after the main event, gingham bunting to decorate the entrance, the immaculate state of my kitchen after they had finished, all contributed to making the party unforgettable and very elegant.We would have no hesitation in recommending Pinnies and Pearls to anyone looking for caterers to make a special event, one which they and their guests will remember for a long time." Dianne and Angela, Scarcroft, March 2014"
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful tea you gave us last night. Everything was perfect from the delicious food right down to the embroidered napkins and vintage butter knives.

So thank you once again for helping to make our 65th birthday such a memorable occasion." Sue, Ilkley. August 2014
