Buffet Catering

Do you need buffet catering for an event that you are planning, perhaps for a wedding, a children’s party, a business meeting or sadly a wake. Well look no further, we can take care of it for you.

Our buffets are all completely tailored to your needs, we are all different, we have big eaters, small eaters, vegan, gluten free and just those fussy eaters, it’s important for us that everyone you need us to cater for is happy with the food they receive.

We can either work on a Per Person cost of if you are working to a specific budget we can also work on a total cost price instead.
