Dinner party catering

How it all works



We cater for Dinner Parties for 10 people and above starting at £35 a head with an option of a canapes, starters, main course, dessert & cheeseboard, coffee & petit fours. Whether you dinner party is in the comfort of your own home, your office or even a holiday rental I can create a dinner party menu to suit the surroundings and budget. Dinner parties are a great opportunity to see friends, loved ones or colleagues in a formal but relaxed experience. Often when catering for your guests you do not actually get the time to spend socialising with the guests as you are constantly in the kitchen preparing the food. Let us take the stress and worry away so that you can concentrate on the most important thing which is yourself and the guests having a great time.

Quotes are broken down in to 3 areas the cost of the food, any hire equipment needed and the staff.   

The Food, each menu is priced individually and created by you and I, we together will plan a menu that you are happy with compensating for children, religious beliefs and and dietary requirements, prices may vary dependant on the season.

Although most venues have everything you need Hire equipment can include anything from crockery, cutlery, tableware, marquees, ovens, glasses, refrigeration, fire safety, waste disposal, gas burners, tables, hot cupboards. I will happily arrange your hire equipment at no extra cost.

The Staff would include a chef to cook your meal at a cost of £90 a member of waiting staff to lay, clear and serve at a cost of £90 to be paid in cash on the day of the event.

Please note parties larger than 19 will require an additional staff member.

Payment of a 10% non refundable booking fee to be made upon booking with the remaining balance to be settled 7 days prior to the event. Staff cash to made available upon arrival on the event

It really is down to you on which experience you have, my sample menus are exactly that so if you have certain dishes that you want or do not want then get in touch and I will construct and price a bespoke menu just for you and your guests to enjoy.
