Happy clients...




Can I take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts to you and the team for making our wedding day the best day ever. Everything was perfect and I'm still reliving it all today.... 

Every single guest commented on how amazing your food was and the service that came with it. That is exactly what we wanted on our wedding day, for the food to be 5 star and that's what it was and more! 

New Beginnings



We have moved premises to The Cookhouse at the Suffolk Food Hall a great local centre for all things foodie. Moving is never simple but we’ve settled in nicely.

We have a shiny new kitchen for our Head Chef David to work his magic in and lovely new offices overlooking the Orwell Bridge.

Our calendar is filling up quickly but if you have an event, just get in touch.

Our commitment to great food and service remains the same as ever and we look forward to hearing from you.

It's Christmas !!! (well nearly)




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

New Beginnings


Planning and attention to detail is at the heart of everything we do.  This time of year is perfect for meeting clients whose events we’ll be catering for in the coming months.   Each one will be different, unique and special for all those involved.

We bring our 30 years of experience along to every meeting; willing to share as much or as little as needed. It’s what sets us apart, we think.

Our approach means clients can always expect excellent food, welcoming service and great value from us.

If you’re planning an event that needs a professional team with a personal touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Anyone for Tea?




Great Feedback


The largest event in our Calendar!



Preparations are well underway for the Suffolk Show 2013 where we will cater for the show’s corporate sponsors and members of the Suffolk Agricultural Association in a giant marquee.  We expect to serve more than one thousand people over two days with a tempting array of dishes featuring the best of local produce and we hope that the gale-force winds (that saw the second day of last year’s show cancelled) stay away!

And speaking of local…we’ve all been reminded of late that it really pays dividends to know exactly where our food ingredients come from.  We always have, long before it was trendy! As we enter our 31st year of trading, these standards are just as important to us now as they’ve always been and our clients obviously agree, judging by some of their lovely comments!

New Year



A hectic start to 2013 – our chefs are being kept busy providing “tastings” to clients whose events are happening later this year – it’s enough to make you break your New Year’s diet!!

Our congratulations to Amy and Matt whose wedding was at Shepherd’s Cottage,Wantisden Valley on Saturday.  Their guests enjoyed hearty traditional English food to warm them on a very cold day.

Here’s what they had to say afterwards…

“We all had a wonderful time thank you and everyone commented on how good the food was.

Thank you again for such great food and service it really did help our day be a magical one.” 

A great start to the year!




It’s been one of our busiest and most successful years ever, so we thought we’d give ourselves a big pat on the back!  Here are some recent comments from satisfied clients:


“Thank you so much, another awesome event. The food was incredible, I know how difficult it is to cater for so many people and keep the
quality so very high, please pass on our sincere thanks to Patricia and
her staff.”

 “thanks for your hospitality at our AGM tonight, it was a great evening & we felt very well looked after!
Good work one and all!”
“Another brilliant event – thank you so much for once again producing a gorgeous menu that everyone is talking about. It was brilliant and plentiful!
Thanks to all the staff who were so good on the evening and made our guests so welcome, they were lovely and looked after us all so well.
I can’t recommend you highly enough.


“I would like to say a big thank you for the catering that you did for me following my Mum’s funeral on 22nd November… From the moment I first rang your company I was very impressed with the way that things were done and felt that all the worry of the catering for that day had been lifted from me.
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly and professional”

Happy Christmas!
We’re looking forward to 2013 and already preparing for our first two events on 5th January!



Lovely bread !!
