If you are having a less formal event, and want to pay a little less for the same quality of food, then take a look at my Casual Dining below. Some dishes are fully plated, and others served communally at the table. Starters and desserts are usually served individually whatever your numbers.
Put together your own casual dining menu, with a little help from me if you wish. Any of the dishes can be amended to suit your requirements, and you can add options from my vegetarian menu if you wish. Please note that the starting price of £29 per person for 3 courses assumes everyone is eating the same meal. I can provide up to 2 choices for 2 courses at extra cost providing the kitchen facilities are suitable.
Where not specified, dishes are served with an appropriate selection of bread, potatoes, vegetables, salads, cream, ice-cream etc. (but not all at once!), or according to your preference.
Take a look at my Prices page for an indication of any mileage charges, and (if waiting staff are required) to choose a level of service, choose your dishes, and I will then give you an all-inclusive quote.
