Every bride and groom are given the royal treatment, starting with a warm welcome by the company directors followed, by a selection of canapés and starters, main courses, and desserts. Which are pre chosen by the happy couple.  Once the taster has finished, we then design a menu around the happy couples tastes and requirements, changes to the menu can be made up to a week prior to the big day.   All our food is freshly prepared using local ingredients, from local farm meats, to east coast fish, to local asparagus (in season).    For further information on our catering services please call us on 01347 878628.
