Lynn Hilditch Catering – The Perfect Choice

Lynn Hilditch catering was the perfect choice for our 40th birthday celebrations at Melmerby Hall in May. Lynn’s food was beautifully presented, made with the finest local Cumbrian produce and meats and tasted phenomenal. The Lamb Shank roasted in ale was a huge highlight. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lynn to friends and would certainly book again for future events. Simply superb food and great value also.

A perfect combination

Our family of 23 stayed for several days on the Rowley Estate. Lynn and her team made us breakfast each day and dinner twice. The food was really delicious. Lynn was professional but very friendly at the same time. A perfect combination. We would definitely recommend Lynn, and hopefully we will have another occasion ourselves to use her again.

A Very Big Thank you!

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for the fantastic birthday dinner that you provided for our family during our recent celebration stay at Melmerby Hall on the Rowley Estates.

Your attention to detail during the planning of a varied menu, to include the needs of guests who were vegan, gluten-free and small children, was tremendously helpful. We had a wonderful time; your three-course meal was delicious. The calm preparation of you and your team, coupled with the attention to the pace of the meal as it progressed, and the spotless kitchen left at the end, really made it a 5 star experience for all concerned.

Isabel and Elizabeth and family.


You won’t be disappointed!”

“Lynn’s love and passion for food shone through at our very first meeting and this combined with her enthusiasm and desire to please, made my decision to choose her for our weekend house party, very easy. She uses locally sourced food and produces delicious dishes from her home made pizza suppers to her spectacular gourmet dinners. Lynn and her team are both professional and friendly and couldn’t do more to help.  I can’t recommend Lynn Hilditch Catering highly enough. You won’t be disappointed!”

Blencowe Hall
Great job from Lynn Hilditch …can highly recommend to anyone. Helped to make it a big success with her food and service. Superb.

Perfect Location for our Wedding

We were fortunate enough to have our wedding at Blencowe Hall for a small, intimate ceremony over the course of a long weekend. The catering for the wedding was fulfilled by Lynn Hilditch and was absolutely exceptional, the dining room would go completely quiet with each course served.
The whole wedding party was in agreement that it was some of the best food they had ever eaten, especially the pork which had been cooking since 4 am! I couldn’t recommend Lynn highly enough, she really helped make the weekend and was very personable to match.


Good evening Lynn

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the sumptuous food you provided! It absolutely made the whole occasion just so, just perfect!

Very best,  Victoria Carleton

Cazenovia Hall 

On our first night I arranged for the incredible Lynn Hilditch to bring us a Cumbrian High Tea as a surprise for my wife. It was fantastic. She delivered not only beautiful sandwiches but home made quiche, cakes, chutney and scones. I ordered for 7 of us and we were still finishing it off 2 days later!

The quality was fantastic, we will definitely order with Lynn again. I cannot speak highly enough of this service.


Melmerby Hall

I had my birthday dinner catered for by Lynn Hilditch, who is recommended on the Melmerby Hall website. Lynn was absolutely exceptional – providing an astounding six course 1930s themed dinner, simultaneously allowing for vegetarian and vegan guests. The best beef wellington I will ever taste, as well as home-grown veg and regional produce every step of the way. We were awestruck, and very grateful!


I booked Blencowe Hall and Riverain 15 months in advance.

My main contact was with the incredible Lynn Hilditch and her team of culinary experts regarding catering over the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she delivered beautiful food on the night of our arrival including the best sticky toffee pudding I have ever eaten.

Lynn Returned to cook us a full English breakfast for 30 people on Friday morning then served a 5* three course meal for us all in the evening. The lamb shanks had been cooking slowly for about 5 hours and the meat just fell off the bone, delicious. Cannot praise them high enough


Kirkbride Hall,  23rd to 26th September.

During our stay we booked Lynn Hilditch catering to provide an evening dinner for us.

Everything was perfect, the food was delicious, extremely well priced plenty to go round for all of us ! I will be recommending both the accommodation, the area and Lynn to many family and friends


Fabulous, really really fabulous!

We were lucky to find Lynn Hilditch catering through a link on the Rowley Estate web site – Lynn was brilliant and the food & service that she provided on 2 nights was wonderful. Thanks so much for making the weekend magical!
