Reviews

As a leading provider of After the Event Insurance solutions to the legal market, ARAG are lucky to have a strong cluster of clients in South Wales. We wanted to provide a relaxed and interesting evening for our clients during the English lockdown and Welsh firebreak. 2020 has been a challenging year and we had planned to offer a walking food tour of Cardiff but of course that has proved impossible.

It was a first class, hugely entertaining and informative evening online, with some delicious Welsh foods and drinks to try and with excellent explanations and stories which made the evening go with a real swing. The goodies all arrived in a hugely exciting boxes delivered directly to our guests homes.

A huge thank you to Sian and Chris for hosting a fantastic evening, enabling us to treat our clients for their support throughout the year. We could not recommend Loving Welsh Food more highly and look forward to using them again in the future.

“We thought the eve was brilliant. My husband and I had both been feeling a bit low with the lockdown so it cheered us up no end to attend a social event. I would say it was the highlight of our lockdown. The food and drink was absolutely delicious, we enjoyed all of it. It was such an interesting, interactive and fun eve. I was born in Cardiff and lived in Penarth but now live in Poole Dorset. I haven’t been able to visit any of my Welsh family this year so it was lovely just to hear the Welsh accents and talk of Cardiff”.
