Customer Testimonials

Dear Mr Ladbury
I would like to say a big thank you for the design and installation of our new kitchen. We feel our decision to ask John Ladbury and Co to undertake the work was one of the best we have made. Over a period of three to four weeks Ian spent so much time with us, helping us to decide what we actually wanted and how it would look when it was completed. Ian's expertise in the products you sell and his knowledge he has in kitchen design and installation is second to none. With reference to the installation we feel we struck gold with Mark; he was excellent and did a magnificent job. One of his comments to me was, 'Steve all we want is for you and Mary to be happy with your new kitchen.' As a customer it was so refreshing and exactly what we wanted to hear. He would arrive on time every day; nothing was too much trouble and at the end of the day everything was left clean and tidy. We felt completely comfortable with him in our home and couldn't recommend him highly enough.

The whole team were so conscientious and worked hard to give us the kitchen we wanted, and when it was all finished it was nice that Stephen Ladbury took the time to come and have a look at the end result. Once again thank you very much, Mary and myself are so pleased with the end result.
Best regards Steve and Mary Tilley.

Dear David and Team Many thanks for building our dream kitchen; it really is stunning and the heart of our home.

Justin and Simone Deans   (Mr and Mrs Deans - Redhall)

Dear Amanda and team
We are very grateful to you for making our dream kitchen come true. Your brochure and website were the deciding factors in choosing your company- we looked at the pictures in the gallery and read about your 'no pressure' policy. This turned out to be true, and the fact that Amanda has the patience of a saint when it comes to choosing colours was an added bonus! Our new kitchen is everything we hoped for and more. We especially like the larder units, the spice racks, the Westin cooker hood, the splash back behind the cooker and the knowledge that the solid wood cupboards and drawers will last for the rest of our time in the house. Thank you also for delivering on time. we needed the kitchen finished in time for Boxing day lunch for the extended family, and the timetable which was promised was adhered to exactly.
We will be recommending you and wish you every success
Kind Regards.

Mr and Mrs S   (Painted Kitchen)

Thank you and the whole team at John Ladbury for the excellent work you have done for us. We are so pleased with the beautiful bedroom wardrobes, the housekeepers' cupboards and deep drawer units, complete with linen press. The units and free standing kitchen dresser and bookshelf lined study are stunning and I virtually live in there now because it is so cosy. You have a great gift for interpreting the garbled wishes of someone who knows what they want but has some difficulty in describing it. All the pieces seem exactly right; easy on the eye and well proportioned without appearing heavy. All aspects of your operation ran like clockwork, finishing up with a first class installation. You must all take great satisfaction from your work and I can envisage everything you have built in our house lasting for generations to come. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone and would like to thank you all once again.

Karin Vallis   (Painted Bedroom, study and freestanding dresser - Tring)

Dear David
Just a note to say a huge thank you for our beautiful kitchen. Whilst we appreciate that it was not an easy project for all concerned in view of the fact we lived overseas, you managed to pull out all the stops to make our dream kitchen. We are delighted with the end result and thank goodness you managed to steer us in the right direction on many of the choices, which we now realise we would have regretted. Thank you so much for your professionalism, patience and ideas.

Mr P Centa   (Painted Kitchen & Oak bedroom - Datchworth)

Dear David
Now that our kitchen is completed, Paula and I would just like to confirm to you how pleased we are with the whole experience. The finished kitchen looks great and is exactly how we hope the job would turn out. We would like to complement all of your staff who built and installed both the units and associated appliances/services. Alan organised the whole installation extremely efficiently and with Pete, obviously knew exactly what they were doing throughout the whole project. When the painting /decorating phase commenced, from day one , we were amazed at the patience and attention to detail shown by Mark. All the guys contributed in the provision of the best type of advertisement for John Ladbury & Co.
Thank you very much.

Mr and Mrs Woolfe   (Hand Built Kitchen - Grange Park)

Dear Mandy I am writing to thank you and your team for a fantastic job in the creation of our new kitchen. We know that it was not entirely straightforward due to the age if our property and our particular needs. However you have been able to blend the old and the new to great effect.

Please pass on our thanks to all.

We have just had our new kitchen fitted by John Ladbury and Company and are absolutely thrilled with it. From beginning to end David and his team were exceptionally helpful. It was totally stress free and the quality of the workmanship is of the highest standard. Everything we wanted has been included in the design along with the items that they suggested which are perfect. We would highly recommend John Ladbury and Company to any one was thinking of having a new kitchen as nothing was too much trouble for them and the end result is stunning.

Paul & Sally Mason

Paul and Sally Mason   (Kitchen)

We'd like to thank you for all the hard work and dedication you and your team showed in the installation of our new kitchen. Unlike some of the other contractors on the project, your guys took ownership of any issues, didn’t make a fuss, and found a solution.

Please pass on our thanks to the guys who worked so hard, and put in long hours, before Christmas to get a superb job done and if you ever need a local reference site – please do not hesitate to contact myself or Natalie. We would be delighted to speak to any prospective client to tell them how delighted we are with the service and the finished kitchen.

Wishing you a healthy, prosperous 2016.

Leon and Natalie   (New Kitchen in Hertfordshire)

They were very skilled,hardworking and caring professionals.We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and would like to thank you again.

Mr and Mrs Garwood   (Kitchen, SG12)

Dear David
I have to let you know what a stunning investment our John Ladbury kitchen has been, After ten years of constant use (and misuse!) from our busy family our bespoke, hand painted kitchen has really shown it's value. The cabinets have recently been re-painted in a more contemporary colour and it feels like a brand new kitchen! I've fallen in love with it all over again!!

Katie Carr   (Re-paint)

Hi David,
When Rachel and I visited your showroom (just a nice place to be) we knew we'd found the right company and people to buy our kitchen from. The quality & style stood out from anything we'd seen before and we soon started talking furniture rather than kitchen units. We did end up spending more than we budgeted but I believe in value for money.
Everyone who has seen our kitchen has been impressed and we readily give them the name of John Ladbury.
Kind regards,
Mike
