The CanapéBox Way

Happy Clients

“We used CanapéBox to cater for our internal social event and they went down a treat! We had a mix of meat, fish and veg options with a couple of desserts too and each and every canapé was enjoyed by all. They were presented very well, with high quality ingredients and tasted delicious. Can’t wait to try out some more options. Thank you!”

Alston & Bird

“Thank you to the team at CanapéBox for the amazing service and delicious canapés. It was so easy to order from the website and the canapés were exactly as described. My order was delivered on time and was all packaged so well. Everyone at the party commented on how delicious all the canapés were and I have recommended you to all my friends! Brilliant service from beginning to end!”

Nic G

“Wow! So pleased we discovered CanapéBox for our recent office open house event. The attention to detail for each morsel of food was amazing and created the impression to our guests that we had spent a good deal more that we had. The team were so service-oriented it made all the difference. Thank you!”

Donna T

We used CanapéBox for our event and they were amazing! Especially the duck, hoi sin sauce, cucumber, mango pancakes was a hit and gone within minutes! They delivered on time and were very professional. We would definitely recommend their services!

Ellen L

“We have been using CanapéBox for years and I cannot recommend them enough. The food is always delicious and we are forever being asked where the canapés are from. The service is always impeccable and delivery so easy. From canapés for 200 for birthday parties, to nibbles for 10 at a dinner party, they’re my absolute go-to and the cherry on top – fantastically priced.”

Gormley & Gamble

“Great choice of canapés which looked attractive, tasted delicious and were bite-sized so no crumbs on expensive carpets. Attention to detail was impeccable with excellent packaging making it easy for waiting staff to plate up. They double checked on the night to make sure that everything had arrived safely. Would not hesitate to recommend them for a stress-free and thoroughly enjoyable party.”

Henry G

“I’ve used CanapéBox for both home parties and work events too and been nothing but impressed. The choice selection is great, the booking/order process is easy and works. Simple! The actual box the food arrives in is also brilliant meaning serving up the delicious canapés is quick and easy. Give them a ago. You won’t be disappointed!”

Jeremy B

“I have only used the CanapéBox throughout the pandemic as I needed a solution to being able to share canapés at small business meetings, but without everyone dipping their fingers into shared platters. Chris and the team provide beautifully presented canapés and individual boxes that taste fantastic. They’ve catered to all the dietary requirements that I have thrown at them and provide a list of allergens to be displayed without being asked. They are beyond reliable with delivery no matter what part of London I have sent them to. To put it bluntly, the CanapéBox team have saved my bacon many a time during this crazy period of our lives! Thank you :)”

Cathryn A

“Fantastic service! The canapés arrived a couple of hours before our event in cold storage to preserve freshness, clearly labelled and well-presented. They were delicious! Thoroughly recommend this company – we’ll definitely be using them again!”

Tom F

“The best canapés in the UK! Great service, highly recommend.”

Kate M

“I just wanted to touch base to say thank you very much for all your help leading up to our press night last night. It all went smoothly and Danny was great at overseeing the running of it in the space and ensuring our cast got canapés as well as guests. We will absolutely recommend CanapéBox to other venues for similar events.”

Michael Grandage Company

“Thank you to all at CanapéBox for such a great product and service! After searching for food ideas for a volunteer Christmas get together, I struck gold with your website – such a wonderful choice, great customer service, delicious canapés not to mention hassle free delivery, presentation and recyclable packaging – you can’t go wrong!”

Battersea Brands Hatch

“Many thanks to you all for such a professional service; our canapés arrived in good time and were so well packaged and protected it meant there was no need to spend any time decanting/storing/rearranging them to serve and more time to spend with our guests! They all disappeared which made me very happy as there was zero food waste.”

Battersea Brands Hatch

“The canapés arrived in a timely and efficient manner. They were delicious and refined and everyone loved them. It is such a nice idea and made my life easier; everything done for you with such excellent standards take the pressure of hosting off. Thank you CanapéBox, you’ve won a loyal customer!”

Stephanie P

“Outstanding and upstanding, I can’t recommend CanapéBox highly enough. The food is exquisite, beautiful flavours with amazing choice. I would happily stick my neck out and say perfect for any event or occasion. The whole process from ordering to delivery, seamless and a 1,000 thank you’s to CanapéBox for a swift and impeccable service.”

Roy H

“I really don’t know where to begin, thank you does not seem enough. You delivered three served courses for 300 to exactly the same standard you provided for 3 at the tasting, fantastic! We put our trust in you and you excelled. The day was perfect. Everybody loved the food; your staff were charming and attentive. The tables where perfect and the service was extremely professional, attention to detail at every level. Nothing was too much trouble for you or any of your lovely team. The evening food was just as delicious and the drink and bar service was conducted in the same brilliant and professional manna that was received earlier. In fact, I cannot fault anything, we had an amazing day. Thank you for your significant contribution to making our daughter’s wedding such a wonderful and memorable occasion.”

Nicky & Robert L

“Many thanks for the superb Jubilee Lunch you provided, everything was exactly as we’d asked for and the comprehensive service was excellent.”

Dame Stephanie Shirey

“My High Sheriff Summer Reception was a great success and I have been inundated with so many complimentary remarks about all the arrangements. I wanted to write and thank you so much for your contribution in making this event such a success. I am very grateful to you and your team for all their hard work, especially at such a busy time of year. The food and drink arrangements all went extremely well and I had many compliments about not just the food but the very pleasant and professional staff that were there on the day. Thank you again for everything.”

High Sheriff

“We just wanted to write to thank you and your super team for being such superstars on our wedding day. We had obviously seen you in action at our friends wedding but it was so reassuring to see your friendly face pop up whenever something was needed, it was excellent. The food was incredible and people were still talking about the 7 desserts the other day so that was obviously a hit! It was incredible and your team were also excellent. Thank you so much for everything; from tasting to the big day. Thank you so much!”

Woody & Hannah

“Very many thanks for your generosity in supplying the canapés for the champagne reception before the opera. They were delicious and very much remarked upon. It was a glorious sunny evening and everyone eager for food and drink. We raised in the region of £29k and had a wonderful time as well. Thank you again for your support, it was very much appreciated.”

Judy A | Charity Fundraiser

“So many thanks for making our Drinks party so very special. I enjoyed the whole evening as did our guests. The canapes where all delicious and the presentation first class. We were so very lucky with the weather and being in the garden was great. All your staff were charming and looking after us all beautifully. Once again, please pass on my thanks to them all.”

Raymond & Edward
“Thank you for a great concept, simplicity of use, fantastic service and really excellent food. Never thought to find such a high quality and simultaneously easy service. Completely streamlined and we had had a great cocktail party – amazing!”
