Themed Menus

We have set out a selection of special menus which can still be adapted to suit a dinner party, wedding buffet, party, lunch, afternoon tea – we want your event to be special and that is why we are happy to adapt all our menus for you.

At Lobster Pot Catering, we will cater for parties of any size. However, if you have less than 20 guests we prefer to prepare and deliver the food, allowing the hosts to present and serve it themselves.

Our menus are designed to help give you ideas of what you might like to choose. They are not set in stone and you can mix and match or create something totally different from our comprehensive list.

We pride ourselves on listening, being professional with a friendly approach and designing a menu especially for you. We look forward to your custom – Claire Swinburn
