Special Occasions



One of our most satisfying things to do is help people with a special occasion or celebration at their own private venue. It is a real honor to be involved with these private events as they often mark some special milestone in people’s lives.

Should you ask us to cater for your special event you will enjoy the satisfaction of having a professional team of chefs and service staff take care of all your guests food and beverage needs. We come in, take over the kitchen, set up and serve the meal and clean up all the mess and take it away with us. This means you can concentrate on what is really important, enjoying time with with your friends and family.

The following is an example of one of these very special events.

Andrea’s Hens Party


Andrea came to us wanting some help with her hens do. She was hosting 16 friends and family at boutique accommodation and wanted to serve a lunch that was sophisticated yet friendly with a feminine orientation. Jenny decided a sharing menu might be exactly what the occasion called for with some elegant canapés to begin. Our Function manager worked closely with Andrea to choose a beverage package to match.
