"Andrew and Elaine Powis from Sterling were recommended via word of mouth and in fact a total of three consultants were interviewed. They were all very good but Andrew and Elaine bounce well off each other and we felt quite comfortable very quickly, they listened intently and they don’t miss anything. They paid great attention to detail and made the best used of space in each zone. There were no headaches because they solved any issues before there was a problem, we would not have achieved so much without Elaine and Andrew. The new design provided exactly what is needed…..we are very well equipped".
"Overall Andrew and Elaine provided a professional and expert service and the outstanding result has been complimented by our catering team and Club Members"
"Sterling’s most outstanding qualities have been their knowledge of the industry and their attention to detail. They were prepared to back their decisions and take contractors on where necessary"
"We acknowledge and thank you for the tremendous level of work your team carried out on our behalf at considerable short notice. Because of your input we will have a significantly improved design for our catering facilities than what may have been"
"I would like to express my gratitude for the courtesy extended to me by yourself (Sterling) during my recent pre-opening inspection of the catering facilities at Whatley Manor. The standard of equipment fitted and the quality of work flows designed in the kitchen are the best I have seen in a catering establishment. I must congratulate you and your clients for working to such a high standard"
