GREAT FOOD, excellent service, friendly staff. What more do you want
Chef Manny has catered for my daughters wedding, as well as other functions I have attended. His food is always delicious, fresh and well presented. Nothing is too much trouble for him to cater for special diets etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Manny to anyone seeking a professional catering service.
His venue of Gainsborough Greens Golf Club is a beautiful setting for any function and the deck area is a great place to sit and relax looking over the lake and the course, enjoy a drink and something to eat. Even if you are looking to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends, a birthday party or a wedding you won't be disappointed.
