About Us


Simply the Guest is a small event and catering company which aims to provide the personal touch and is located in Sawbridgeworth which is on the Hertfordshire and Essex border. It is run by Julie Crouchman and Maria Hunter who have been successful business partners for over 12 years. They have a wealth of experience in business and hospitality and both hold a City and Guilds Accredited Certificate in Food Safety & Hygiene, and are proud to have been awarded 5 out of 5 hygiene stars by East Herts Council.


Simply the Guest can organise any type of event from parties to business lunches, christenings to retirements, anniversaries to funerals on location or in your home. We understand that everyone's requirements and budgets are unique and therefore we aim to plan and create an event tailor-made for you.


Simply the Guest host regular charity events which have proved to be highly succesful in generating funds for worthwhile causes. These events can include Cream Teas, Lunches etc. We have received excellent feedback from both our clients, including the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity and also the local press.


If you would like further information and are a genuine charity or fundraising association, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss how we may help. 


Simply the Guest can provide an extensive range of services such as venue hire, food and beverages, staffing, tableware, decor, entertainment and, if in your home, a full spring-clean before and after the event. We also offer a contract cleaning service.


Our aim is simple, to take all the organisation and stress of co-ordinating an event away from you and allow you to be the guest!


We will be happy to supply you with a no obligation competitive quote for any of our services so please email or telephone us with your requirements.
