Chris came to our wedding, the van looked unbelievable and really fit with our vibe. Chris had a great range of drinks and ordered in slingsby gin for us. Chris is so friendly and everyone commented how nice the van is and how good the service is. It was so easy to book and chris is easy to chat to, I would recommended to everyone! I don’t have any pictures of the van is it rained on the day but pictures don’t do it justice!

I cannot recommend The Drinky Tin enough! We had a party of 85 in our back garden on Saturday for a combined anniversary and birthday party and our guests absolutely loved the experience of the drinks tin! This is the second time we have used it in our garden and it has not let us down! The staff are amazing and so is the owner! A 5 Star service all around! 🙌

Our experience of the Drinky Tin was absolutely fantastic. From the moment they arrived they brought great vibes and went above and beyond; even helping us to set up the rest of the party! The van was amazing but the drinky tin team completely made the the day. They were professional but great fun, all our guests absolutely loved them and we will certainly be getting them along to our next event soon!

Hired a few kegs from Chris for a stag do and was beyond impressed with both the product and the service Chris provided. Would highly recommend using Chris for any event. The process was super easy and pouring your own beer was a great novelty.

We cannot say enough great things about Chris & Andy - they stepped in at very short notice after we were badly let down by another supplier - turns out they couldn't have been more perfect for our event! If we could give them 6 stars we would! Do not hesitate to book these guys - absolute professionals and super nice chaps too - a great addition to any event you may be hosting!
