Our Experience

With fifteen years of event management experience we are not just about food. We'll help you with every aspect of your event from concept to completion – finding the perfect venue, choosing a delicious and appropriate menu, organising equipment rental, coordinating your floral arrangements, entertainment, theming, staffing and all the other twiddly bits.

Our attention to detail is unsurpassed whether we are providing a platter of sandwiches for a business lunch, a private dining affair or a sit down wedding buffet for 300.  

We will work closely with you to help navigate all the aspects of your event.  Ensuring we understand the complexities of your needs, the sensitivities of the occasion and always with the goal of achieving a seamless, wonderful event.  

Most importantly we will make it a fun, stress free journey.

Committing to Sustainability

The 25 Mile Challenge

We are proudly conscientious of our planet.    

Committed to sustainability, we give maximum priority to sourcing from local and regional suppliers, conscientiously using sustainable, re-usable products wherever possible and concentrating on achieving zero food wastage.  

By launching our 25 Mile Challenge we aim to source as much of the produce we use for our clients' events from within a 25 mile range of our kitchens

As well as out 25 Mile commitment we ensure that any excess food from our events is diverted to either our Outreach Connect Programme, local food banks or within the community to those in need.  

 And our refuse is collected and recycled, with food waste being recycled back to make energy.   None of it goes to landfill.
