Dear Busy Event Planner,

SBS Award Winner
Winner of 2018 SBS Awards by BBC Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis

Is it your responsibility to organise the catering for the big corporate launch? Perhaps you’ve been told you’ve got to plan the Christmas party but everyone has different dietary requirements and you have no idea where to start? Are you worried that you won’t be able to pull off the outstanding food your boss expects and it will affect your career?

Imagine the embarrassment of ending up with bland, boring food that everyone turns their noses up at. Or someone having an allergic reaction to their food due to a mistake and ending up in hospital!

The last thing you want is for everyone to blame you for terrible catering that winds up costing your company a new client. Or worse, never being trusted to be in charge of anything ever again.

Multi-award-winning catering
Multiple winners of some of the UK’s biggest industry awards

We know that when you’re planning your company’s big event that you need to know everything is going to be perfect.

You’re imagining delicious, mouth-watering food that will really take your guests tastebuds on an adventure they’ll never forget. You want the catering to be exactly as you’ve planned rather than the usual dull buffet food. You want food that will have people taking notice and telling you it was the highlight of the event.

With bespoke menus you can create the ideal food for your event. Whether it’s canapés being served by our professional, uniformed staff to tantalise your guests on arrival, stunning grazing tables to amaze the eyes or a full three-course meal presented in style, your food will be tailored to your vision.

You’ll be able to focus on your guests and when it comes time to eat you’ll be able to tuck in with everyone else without reserve and enjoy the delicious feast we’ve prepared for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) How long will it take for my availability check and quote to arrive?

Once you’ve let us know your email and your ideal date, the pricing guide will be emailed across to you right away. If you have any questions about pricing, availability or anything else then the team is always here to help out.

2) What if I prefer a set menu?

There is a menu pack to drive your inspiration or for you to choose for your event. You can choose from previous menus we have created for other events or mix and match them to create your own; it’s easy.

3) Can you cater at my location?

We cover events all over the East Midlands and slightly further afield, as well as Leicester itself. Just let us know where you’re thinking of and we’ll be able to tell you if we can help. Part of our process includes a thorough site visit to establish if we can cook onsite. If we can’t then there’s no need to worry, your food will still be as hot and fresh as if it had just popped out of the oven.

4) Do you provide drinks as well as food?

Yes. We offer a fully stocked bar service complete with rustic wooden bar, including 3 staff (4 if over 150 guests), plenty of ice and glassware for your entire event so you don’t have to worry about sourcing a separate company for drinks. There will even be fresh bar fruit!

5) Can you cater my outdoor event?

We are experts in outdoor catering and have all of our own equipment. All we need to cater your outdoor event is a sturdy, spacious tent, a proper, even floor, good, bright lights, and an electric supply for our equipment. We supply our own gas for our ovens.

6) What about specialist dietary requirements?

We’ve got this covered. Once you let us know of any dietary needs such as vegetarian or vegan, any intolerances like gluten or lactose and any allergies that may affect your guests, we can specially cater to them all. Your front of house manager will take care of all of the above, ensuring all the correct meals are served to the right guests so everyone can enjoy their food without worry.
