Here's just some of what we do........

 

Weddings

Weddings

Specialising in outside catering for over 40 years throughout Bristol and the surrounding counties there's not many venues I won't have been to. Finding the perfect venue is one thing and getting the catering to match can often be equally challenging. From receptions in a formal country house to a village hall or a marquee in the garden I will share with you my years of experience and am more than happy to help you plan your perfect day. I can provide services ranging from table service to a buffet style layout and refreshments from a champagne reception to a fully licensed bar. Please feel free to contact me whether you are simply looking for ideas or have a fixed idea in mind and i'll be happy to help you where ever I can.


Parties & Celebrations

Buffet

There's always plenty to organise for any get together so why no let me take one of the headaches of your hands. I will prepare in advance the your chosen food in my commercial kitchen and transport it in refrigerated vehicles to your venue and set everything up before your guests arrive. With over 10 fully refrigerated vans whether its a small get together of close friends at your home to several hundred guests at a formal venue no job is to big or small.


Corporate & Promotional Events

Corperate BBQ

From show house openings and topping out ceremonies to board room meeting lunches and catering for agricultural shows I offer a range of services tailored to any occasion including, hot and cold waitered or buffet style service to BBQ's and pig roasts or traditional sandwiches with tea and coffee. For promotional events I can also offer novelty ideas from candy floss for the kids to fresh donuts or jacket potatoes and soup from the Old Bristolian Steam Engine.


Personal Service

This is just a small selection of the services I can offer and with over 40 years of experience nearly all of my business comes from recommendations or repeat customers. The quality of the food and service can often make or break any occasion and I fully appreciate its often a daunting prospect handing over such an important part of your event to a stranger. I pride myself in my personable approach and regularly give talks to local groups and clubs sharing some of the experiences i have had over the years! I'm am very happy to arrange to meet with you in person to help plan your event and can provide many references if required.


Menus

From a traditional sit down British carvery to a taste of the exotic and the unusual from around the world or a buffet with a selection of cold meats and salads to a BBQ in the garden, I am happy to tailor any menu to your requirements. Below are just a few of the most common menus i am asked to provide and of course all are inter changeable to suit any occasion.
