We’ve just catered for our last wedding of the year…a sure sign that Christmas is not far away! We’ve served delicious food, (from picnics to banquets) in a wide variety of settings again this year, including our first wedding at the region’s newest venue, Copdock Hall, and are delighted by the response of many satisfied clients.


With a deep breath we’re gearing up for the festive season starting with the Bangers & Mash Ball at Wantisden Valley this Saturday as well as being at The Christmas Show on Saturday & Sunday at Wherstead Park where our team is currently knee-deep in home-made chutneys, jams & Dundee cake!  December will bring over 2000 guests to Wherstead Park’s Bollywood Christmas Party Nights and for 8 nights we will be providing quality food and service that is at the heart of everything we do. One of the reasons why, we believe, much of our work is through personal recommendation.

If you’d like your event catered with care and attention, we’d love to hear from you
