Personal Event Catering

We are experts at providing catering for dinner parties – either served at the location of your choice or prepped and delivered for your convenience.

Our pop up supper clubs are a sell out success and we are repeating these on a monthly basis , our last one featured Lebanese and Persian food, it was fantastic to try out these new dishes and keep it all locally sourced. Join our newsletter and we can let you know about the next event.
