“I think you provide a first class service. The hampers are beautifully presented. The contents are a terrific mix; I think you have achieved a really good balance of foodstuffs. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to other foodies! Many thanks again.”

Carys Kelly

"Best smoked salmon I've ever had!"

Olly Smith, Wine expert & TV presenter

"Their smoked duck is very good."

Valentine Warner, TV Chef

“ We scoffed the cheese, went ooh and aah over things and then put them in the cupboard because we still don’t have an operational kitchen! The packaging was marvelous and is currently housing my glass Christmas decorations in the loft. The rest, I am sure, will be great.”

Sarah Pugh

“It arrived safely, but then I started to eat the smoked goats cheese, oat biscuits and fig thing and now there isn’t very much of them left. They are truly delicious and then other bits look equally yummy too.”

Ursula Wielgosz

"No one is fussier than me when it comes to smoked salmon, and I was relieved to find high quality samples produced by this smokehouse run by Tim and Gillian Matthews."

Rose Prince, The Telegraph Good Produce Guide

“The Artisan Smokehouse offer not only wonderful products, but a first class customer service to go with it.  They are passionate about their offering and that shines through – what more can you ask for.” 

Julie Sieger, Sovereign Capital

“The Hamper was great. Filled with the sort of goodies I do not usually see in the shops. I think that the only thing left is the Risotto rice! The packaging was excellent and it all reached us in excellent order.”

Graham Smith

"Quick, efficient and did exactly what they said they would do I would highly recommend these suppliers."

Mr & Mrs Bell

"Can't have been more helpful and I love their products"

Mrs Foster

“The vegetarian selection of goodies in the hamper was really good, thank you. All but the smoked maple rapeseed oil has now gone! I have been using the oil in some of my bread-making ... I have used it in combination with some oak-smoked wholemeal flour. I use a lot of rapeseed oil, but yours is kept back for special recipes. The cheese (my real weakness in what would otherwise be fairly healthy vegetarian diet) didn't last long - about three days I think! There was nothing that I disliked. Thanks again for supplying a really good range of goodies.”

David Howells

"Great service, thank you. Products fabulous! "

Mrs Olsen

"Incredibly helpful and positive service. But, more importantly, lovely produce! Am looking forward to ordering again soon."

Mr Walton

Anthony Martin, Head Chef Tate Modern
