Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of events do you cater for?
We can cater for most events: fairs, festivals, weddings, birthdays, community events and more.
Which areas of the country do you cover?
We cover the South West and beyond. We take each catering request on a case-by-case basis so if you are further afield and have a request do not hesitate to contact us. We have catered in Truro, Bristol, London and Wales, for example. If we can’t help we can usually put you in contact with a caterer who is closer.
How much will a buffet cost me?
Buffets start at £6 a head for a basic lunch buffet, and from £7 for more substantial buffets.
Can I sample some food tasters before booking?
Yes, we’re happy to make tasters for you to try. You can sample at our kitchen in Willand, Devon, or we can arrange to meet somewhere convenient to us both. We make everything freshly to order, so we charge £8 per taster dish.
How do I book?
Just fill out our booking request form to provide us with more information about your event. We can then confirm all the details and work with you on the menu/s.
Once you are ready to book, we require 10% deposit to hold the date and confirm the booking. The full amount must be paid no later than 7 working days before the event takes place (for large bookings we require full payment 10 working days before the event).
Do you have a minimum order?
Yes we do for deliveries only. First work out the distance you are from our kitchen (we’re at EX15 2RP and you can work it out on google), and then multiply by five. So for example:
- If you are 5 miles away, minimum order is £25 in food.
- If you are 40 miles away, minimum order is £200 in food.
- If you are 100 miles away, minimum order is £500 in food.
- If you are picking up the food though, there is no minimum order.
When you provide catering do you require access to kitchen facilities on site?
We can do some foods without access to a kitchen – currys, veggie burgers and cold buffets. So we don’t require access to kitchen facilities but we have more scope for hot food if we do have access.
Do you provide table linen, plates and cutlery?
We can provide sturdy compostable plates and stainless steel or wooden cutlery. We also provide serving dishes and cutlery for the food.
We provide table covers for the buffet area only.
Do you provide waiting staff?
We don’t offer formal table service, but we’re happy to put out sharing platters and clear plates. We are also happy to offer canapes around and stay and serve the food from a serving station or keep the buffet topped up if that is required.
Do you have an ethical or environmental policy?
Yes, please read our guidelines.
