“Rochelle is a very nice lady. If she is representing a restaurant I always give it a fantastic review even if it is absolutely crap.”
Giles Coren, Restaurant Critic, The Times
“Roche Communications is a reliable source of accurate and detailed information, an increasing rarity in this industry. They’re happy to suggest new ideas, develop features and go beyond the call of duty to help whenever necessary. They’re respected in the industry, both from restaurant and press perspectives – they know when to be available, but also when to leave well alone. Also, Rochelle really knows about food – and has a wicked sense of humour.”
Marina O’Loughlin, Restaurant Critic, Ex-The Sunday Times
“I have a lot of time for Roche. She has great instinct and experience as well as in-depth knowledge of the brands I work on. This means her pitches are always relevant and she understands the importance of offering exclusivity. She runs a tight ship and her team share her high standards. She’s also an exceptionally good human.”
Christine Hayes, Group Editor in Chief, BBC Good Food & Olive magazine
“I like working with Roche and have found them comfortable partners when planning stories. I will always take Rochelle’s call.”
Allan Jenkins, Editor, Observer Food Monthly
“Thanks to Roche we have managed to maintain a consistent strong presence in an incredibly competitive food and travel market. Roche is great at running concurrent campaigns for our Michelin-starred restaurant Bohemia and the hotel, delivering coverage nationally and locally. They are a real extension of our team.”
Lawrence Huggler, Owner Huggler Hotels – The Club Hotel & Spa
“We have worked with Roche for almost ten years and remain delighted with the press and coverage we receive both as a group and within our standalone fine dining restaurants. Roche have unrivalled contacts and knowledge of the food industry and a network that delivers consistently and effectively – very simply there is no-one else I would trust with my PR.”
Katie Harel, Global Marketing Director Rhubarb Hospitality Collection
“Roche clearly stand out as a leading agency for restaurants in the UK and we love working with them. The results and support they’ve provided from launch for SUMI, have been outstanding.”
Tim Mills, CEO Novators Hospitality
“Roche Communications is a pleasure to work with, the team really are an extension of our own and the creativity and support they provide to us is invaluable. They are very experienced and the focus they put on the F&B operations whilst supporting the hotel as a whole has been invaluable in driving awareness and bookings.”
Henrik Muehle, Managing Director, Flemings Hotel Mayfair
“As a young and growing brand, Roche has been fantastic at providing us with useful advice and guidance. They continue to get us valuable coverage and are always putting us forward for opportunities. The team are essentially an extension of our own, and I have a huge amount of respect for their work ethic. Hard work and results, what’s not to love?”
Gareth Maxwell, Commercial Director, Hattingley Valley
Vivek Singh, Managing Director and Chief Executive, Cinnamon Group
Jillian MacLean, Managing Director, Drake and Morgan
“What a force of nature! Creative, passionate, agile, emotionally invested, and straight-talking – are the ultimate qualities one is looking for in a PR partner, which Roche has got in abundance. I will always cherish the fearlessness with which Roche tackled the unknown world of pandemic hospitality. Together, we carved a voice that helped us restart the business and deliver an outstanding (and award-winning) 175th-anniversary campaign for Searcys.”
Anna Fenten, Marketing Director, Searcys
“I wish every PR firm was like Roche. They always send what you need, when you need it. Ideas, information, images – all perfect. They talk in normal language, they listen to what you say, and they don’t assault you with thousands of releases that will never match your interests. They’re brilliant.”
Mark Mason, Writer, The Spectator
“Both Rochelle and I have been in the industry longer than either of us care to recall and have known one another since the early days of our respective businesses. Few people understand the trade as well as she does and her agency stands out in terms of its high professional standards and astute commercial understanding.”
Peter Harden, Founder Harden’s Guides
“I’ve been working with Roche Communications for over a decade in both food and travel lifestyle journalism and can attest that the company will go above and beyond to help support compelling storytelling, facilitating everything from exploring one of the newest restaurants to open doors in a quiet corner of Belgravia to learning about viticulture in the shadow of the Andes in Argentina.”
Nick Savage, Editor Escapism & Foodism
“Roche has been a joy to work with over the years. From initial brainstorming all the way to publication day, her team is there every step of the way. Whilst other PRs are just about the quick hit, Roche is in it for the long haul. She actually understands how editorial works, so we collaborate to produce magic at just the right moment. She’s also a fabulous friend and the first person I’d think of for Happy Hour.”
James Wong, Travel Correspondent, VOGUE Middle East and Asian editions
“I love working with Roche Communications, it is genuinely always a huge pleasure. They have a very considered and targeted approach, I always know when I get an email from Roche, it’s going to be something worth reading, something that has been carefully thought about and pitched to me and my publication specifically. Their wide reach in the hospitality industry means they get a great view of what’s going on and know exactly how to develop stories and bring new ideas to the table. Not only that, they’re a fantastic, personable team who go the extra mile whenever and whatever I need from them.”
