We offer a variety of options to suit your hospitality needs. We aim to use as much locally produced free-range and Fairtrade ingredients as possible in all our buffets and hamper packages. We take pride in incorporating Fairtrade tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar, and bananas as standard offerings in our hospitality catering services.
Most needs can be catered for including gluten-free and vegan buffets, however, if you require any particular menu for your event please do not hesitate to contact us and we can create a bespoke menu, tailored to your occasion.
Our talented catering staff are available during the normal working week and out of hours at additional rates. We use the same ethical suppliers and purchasing on our hospitality menus as in our cafes, so you can enjoy our food and drink with the knowledge we do what we can no matter where you dine with us.
Our hospitality packages are designed to make your day easier, more enjoyable and to fit within your available budgets. When you book your rooms, please check you have separate spaces and tables for your catering to be served on or additional breakout spaces to minimise the disruption to your guests.
All hospitality orders carry a minimum charge of £25 including delivery.
To meet hospitality requests bookings are required 48 hours before the event. Late orders may not be accepted.
Our services are open to all, we are happy to accommodate external functions.
We want to thank you all for your continued support.
