Our food

Based in the green city of Bristol, we are caterers committed to using only seasonal, responsibly sourced produce. We will never use meat or poultry that is mass produced in a factory somewhere; our fish comes from a sustainable source, our eggs are free range and our fruit and vegetables are always in season.

Of course, we can’t buy everything British, so things like lemons and olive oil normally come from Italy, Spain or Portugal. But we will never buy air freighted goods that come to us out of season, like apples from New Zealand when home grown stocks have run out... Which is why our menus for events and private parties change with the seasons.

Why choose us?

When it comes to entertaining customers, you’ll want to wow them without breaking the bank. We go the extra mile and what’s more, you’ll find we offer something a little different to tempt jaded palates.

We have all sorts of menus, ranging from vegan canapés, to BBQs, buffet spreads and private chef menus, so please take a moment to browse and if you are unsure what you need for your event, just give us a call to discuss.

We can deliver the food to your event, whether it's your offices or a venue of your choice and we provide eco friendly plates and serving platters.  

All of our menus are seasonal, so there is plenty to choose from whatever the time of year, and whatever your occasion. If you have a theme in mind or you can’t find what you’re looking for, please ask – we love a challenge!

Private Chef

Give yourself a break with our Private Chef Service and let us bring the restaurant to you with your very own personal chef at home or at a venue of your choice.

Based in Bristol, we provide the chef to produce a restaurant quality meal for you and your guests, from your chosen menu, as well as waitress service to lay the table, serve and clear up – when your guests have left your kitchen will be left spotless. All you'll have to do is relax and enjoy yourselves.

We have seasonal dinner party menus for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – please take a look, or contact us to discuss your event, and we will devise a special menu just for you.

Prices are charged per head and vary depending on choice of menus.
