Absolutely fantastic! Lynn did a three course meal for 18 for our daughter's 17th birthday. The food was utterly delicious, ample portions and beautifully presented. I especially loved the fact that the lentil wellingtons we had were sat on a bed of yummy pea puree. We has at least three different veg on the side, and each had an extra twist of added flavour. The canapes were so much tastier than the usual non-vegan choices available. The chocolate cake was the best I have ever tasted. We chose to have Lynn as an alternative to booking a restaurant, and I am so glad that we did. It was very much more relaxed being at home, and all we had to provide was table, chairs and plates. Lynn did everything else , including washing up. I highly recommend her catering. Also, out of the 18, my daughter is the only vegan in the family, but everyone loved the food!

I cannot speak highly enough of Lynn and her team. The food was utterly delicious, loved by vegans and non-vegans alike.
It was a wedding buffet Lynn did for us. A huge variety of hot and cold dishes, as listed below:
Curry - Made with red lentils, fresh vegetables, it was spicy without being over-powering, and everyone loves curry!
Mushroom Stroganoff - Made with a medley of mushrooms, red wine and vegetables - dark and delicious.
Tagine - Spicy, colourful and rich without being over-rich.
All served with a choice of Rice, Couscous, Salad Bowls, Breads / Wraps etc
And as well as that we had a Cold Section of trays of filled rolls which included: Cheese & Tomato, Egg Mayo, Pastrami Mustard & Pickles, plus Trays of Spanish Tortilla with Garlic Mayo, Bowls of potato salad, Bowls of coleslaw, Bowls of hummus with vegetable dips, and Olives
Lynn turned up at the function room in plenty of time and sorted everything out. She liaised very professionally with the pub staff. And took care that everything was cleared away afterwards.
Pricewise, it was very reasonable. Definitely worth every penny.

Lynn catered for our wedding on 27th July and I will start by saying Lynn is such a lovely, down to earth helpful woman who was so accommodating. The food was amazing. We didn't tell many people we were having a vegan wedding but the handful of people that did know prior were apprehensive thinking they would be surviving on lettuce for the day. The food was one of the most complimented aspects of our wedding. Every single person loved the food including us! I honestly would have Lynn cater for any future events I could possibly have and wouldn't say no to her being my personal chef as well
Lynn catered our wedding of 120 guests at a large warehouse with limited resources. She really understood what we wanted for our wedding - and she delivered it. We had so many guests commenting how good the food was, and taking the time to go back and compliment her. We couldn’t recommend her enough.
What can I say other than AMAZING!
Lynn and her team were incredible this weekend for our outdoor woodland wedding, the food was absolutely lovely all our non vegan guests were amazed and couldn’t believe it was vegan
Lynn has been absolutely incredible since day one of our initial conversations and all the way through the planning stages, not once complaining when I asked her at the last minute to source glassware and other items I didn’t realise our venue wasn’t going to provide.
Lynn went above and beyond, has the most incredible ‘can do’ attitude and is just all round the most fantastic person to work with.
Her food was absolutely INCREDIBLE and many of our non-vegan guests were amazed at how good vegan food can be and are now considering reducing their meat/dairy intake and two of our guests are now going to go vegan!!
Amazing result all because of the tastiest food.
The day went off without a hitch, Lynn had prepared for everything and was an absolute dream.
I’ve heard planning a wedding can be stressful but it was honestly a walk in the park having Lynn on board.
Thank you so much!
We chose Lynn and her team to cater our wedding on the 1st of June. It was a fairly challenging brief - traditional canapés, Ethiopian platters with injera for the wedding breakfast, and then vegan junk food for the evening.
Wow, did VFP deliver! All of the guests were raving about the food. Some people said it was the best wedding food they had EVER had! The range of flavours was amazing, beautifully presented - we can highly recommend VFP to any couples looking for a vegan caterer who just "gets it"!
Lynn created the most beautiful food for my best friend's Hen party last weekend. The food was absolutely delicious and so gorgeously presented. Lynn was so kind and accommodating from start to finish and made everything so easy. Couldn't recommend her more! THANK YOU! x
I would not recommend Vegan food pimp as a caterer. We had booked Lynn for our wedding in Mid Wales a year before the big day, Lynn had been great at emailing until about week before our day, I emailed countless times asking for a plan for the Saturday and a few days before got a vague reponse saying she would email back later, I never received that email. On the morning of my day we still hadn’t heard from her. Unbe known to us Lynn had subcontracted out our wedding contract to a random chef that she found on social media.
We obviously only realised this when said Chef turned up. This chef told us she had never worked with Lynn before and had no idea who we were and obviously vice versa. We were so shocked as we hadn’t been told any of this (a direct breach of contract as she didn’t ask for our consent).
When we finally got hold of Lynn and asked what was going on she replied that “ I never said it was going to be me coming!” Which to us was shocking as Lynn ie the vegan food pimp was who we had booked.
That’s when the day really started to unfold.
The waitressing team that we paid for didn’t turn up. There was no waitressing staff for the wedding. Which meant that hours before our ceremony started, our lovely venue owner was frantically ringing round friends and neighbours to help out. In the end our guests had to help serve the wedding food which was mortifying for us.
The canapés we had paid Lynn for were missing so again our venue owner and mother had to travel an hour to source and buy from another business. Both of these things came at a cost to ourselves!!
When we questioned Lynn she took no responsibly for missing staff as they “are Agency and she can’t control what agency staff do” !! The food itself randomly arrived in a van with 3 random deliver men, it was not the quality we had agreed with Lynn and was mediocre at best. Edible flowers and garnish we were promised was no where to be seen.
The 3 months that followed the big day were horrible for us. Lynn firstly showed no remorse and disputed everything we said trying to blame covid, she didn’t apologise once and had an excuse for everything. After getting no where with her we took Lynn to small claims court. She accepted to pay the settlement in full however unbeknown to us she lied on the court paperwork about her address. (She had moved from Brighton to Northampton months prior). When Lynn didn’t pay the money by the specified court date we served Lynn with a County Court Junction. Again Lynn didn’t pay by the specified date and continued to ignore all emails from us.
Lynn only surfaced when we started to comment on the Vegan Weddings Facebook page messaging me via Facebook asking what the problem was!!
Lynn finally paid after I told her we knew she’d lied about her address and we’d served her with a CCJ.
Those 3 months were filled with anxiety and I never want anyone to go through what we did, the complete lack of transparency and remorse will forever shock me. I’ve also now spoken to other brides and people reviewing Lynn on “happy cow” that have gone through similar experiences. Her website may look amazing and she may talk the talk but believe me she doesn’t live up to the image she portrays.
I would be very very careful when booking Vegan Food Pimp and definitely do your research!!
