Funeral Catering

Bereavement is a challenging time. Besides the emotional turmoil, there are many practical issues to be dealt with – not least the catering after the funeral service. That is where we come in.

We are experienced funeral caterers and pride ourselves on being sympathetic and discreet.

Home cooked From The Finest Ingredients

We specialise in hot and cold buffet catering. We can cater for whatever your occasion and work in any type of venue, from your home to village halls, offices, and small marquees.

Our buffet menus are recognised and enjoyed by all ages and tastes.

We pride ourselves in providing traditional food made from quality ingredients and excellent customer service from experienced, friendly staff.

Our sample menus are tried and tested ideas that we provide on a regular basis that we can adapt to your own taste.

How we work

Organising a special occasion can be stressful. We will try to minimise your stress, help you put a menu together, and plan the logistics for the event to suit the time and venue and the number of people coming.

Communication is vital for a well-run event. Therefore, before your celebration is confirmed, we will speak to you in person to get a good idea of what you would like and your menu choice. Once we have done this, we will:

  • Confirm your menu, any special requirements, numbers and venue and provide you with a quote.
  • On acceptance of the quote, we will ask for a deposit.
  • We make sure you have all you require; this may involve looking at the venue.
  • You can change the numbers and menu up to four days before the event.

We hope you enjoy working with us.

All menus are subject to change without notice due to seasonal variation and availability.
