We’ve had Grinners Newcastle twice cater for us – once for our wedding, and more recently for a major 60th birthday!
Bernard provided an excellent buffet dinner, the roasts (chicken and lamb) were great, salads fresh and plentiful, and he’s pretty good at serving up the meat too!
He was here as arranged, set up, served and cleared up with a minimum of fuss, and left the place clean afterwards.
Plus the price, I reckon, was worth it to have the cooking done for you. Meals and setup can be as you want it – and plenty of variety as well.
I also want to thank you for being so prompt in replying and helping make it so easy to organise the catering considering our short timeframe.
On behalf of the members of the Adamstown Pensioners, I wish to thank Bernard and his team for a most enjoyable meal. I didn’t hear one complaint, which is unusual for a room full of pensioners. Thanks Bernard, and we will I am sure have you all back again to cater for us.

Rhondda from Eraring
“Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful celebration for Mum’s 90th birthday last Sunday. A large part of the success of the day was your food. Everything was lovely – the nibbles, the salads, the cold meats, the fruit and, in particular, the birthday cake! It looked and tasted stunning!
And, there was a generous amount of food, plenty to feed everyone.
We had some rather discerning foodie visitors. Quite a few of them were ex-Master Butchers who have now retired to to beef cattle farming. So, they know good meat when they taste it!
The platters of cold cuts passed the test!
Thanks for your prompt, on-time delivery and for the quality of the food. Much appreciated. We will certainly recommend Grinners to our friends.”

Year 6 Farewell
I would like to send a long-overdue but very huge “Thank you!” from all here to your wonderful team. Our Year 6 graduation evening, held in December, was a great success and many comments were passed about the delicious meal which was served by your helpful staff. Nothing seemed a bother and everything was run smoothly and efficiently.
I just wanted to say thanks for everything following our wedding on Saturday.
The food was perfect, our guests were all very happy and there was plenty for dinner as well as we partied till the early hours.
I really really appreciate how difficult this would have been for you with our extensive dietary requests. Your team did a terrific job that enabled us to relax and enjoy our wedding.
Brilliant job, well done, thanks again.
– Leanne, 2016
A very big thankyou to Joel and Tyler for the excellent job cooking a delicious BBQ, also serving and cleaning up at my husband’s 50th birthday BBQ. Our guests all commented on the yummy food and service. They even managed to find room in my fridge for the leftovers which the steak was just as nice the next day. I don’t know when the next party is but I will definitely be getting Grinners again and the prices are very reasonable, I have no hesitation referring Grinners.
Hi Carolyn, Ashlea and the Newcastle Grinners Team,
Just want to say a massive thank you to your whole team for the amazing service we received for our outdoor wedding back in March this year! You’re staff on the night were super friendly, efficient and happy to go the extra mile to make sure everything went smoothly! The food was outstanding – we had so many positive comments from our wedding guests about how great the food was! And the timely and efficient correspondence provided by your administrative staff in the lead up to the big day was greatly appreciated and really helped ease the burden of coordinating the event (especially considering us living interstate)!
Thank you so much and congratulations on building such an outstanding business!
I just wanted to pass on our thanks to your staff member who helped with our Christmas party today – he did such a fantastic job setting up, serving & packing away. We hardly knew he was there.
Everyone was very pleased with their meal & passed on their positive feedback.
