“The best catering company in Hertfordshire” … Darrin Jenkins, professional food photographer, seen on BBC TV’s The Good Food Show

Our team of catering, administration, and waiting staff have a well earned reputation for attention to detail, and excellent service. Our staff are friendly and enthusiastic, attentive, yet unobtrusive. For bigger functions, where you may have many different suppliers to deal with, we can provide you with a Funtion Co-ordinator, who will liaise with you in the run up to the event, and make sure that everything is fitting into place as you count down to your important day.

Our clients do not have to follow set formats, or menus. We cater for your individual needs, and we can work with you to plan a menu to suit your  requirements. Our catering team have studied cuisine from around the world, and this is reflected in the variety of dishes that we can offer.

We have catered on a number of prominent engagements, which include: the Gold Medal celebration for Team GB Olympic cyclist Laura Trott (which was broadcast live on BBC TV’s The One Show); Grazia fashion magazine’s biggest ever fashion shoot; the Christmas catalogue photo shoot for Figleaves lingerie; a birthday party held by England international Theo Walcott; a garden party for top interior designer Crispin Vaughan; the nationwide branch relaunch by HSBC Bank; a lunch for HRH the Duke of Gloucester

We can also help with the hire of marquees, crockery, cutlery, glasses, catering equipment, popcorn machines, casinos, decorative balloons … in fact, anything you need to give your function the edge.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail, and I am pleased to say that most of our business is from recommendations – Claire Swinburn
