Chef and Butler Service

Butlers Pantry Outside Catering

Outside Catering – see our buffet menu page. A variety of menus are available for your private parties/ celebrations.

Equipment Hire – We hire out all crockery, cutlery, linen & glassware and celebration cakes can be ordered (prices upon application).

BBQ’s – see our buffet menu page For something a little different we have a variety of BBQ menus available.

Dinner Parties – Why hold dinner parties and spend all the time in the kitchen? We can tailor make a menu for you, prepare, cook and serve your meal and clear away. Prices are dependent upon menu chosen and chef / waiter labour charges would apply.

Private Bistro Parties – The Butler’s Pantry may be hired out for your private party any evening and Sunday lunch (subject to availability). A minimum of 10 guests is required and we can seat a maximum of 22 guests comfortably. The benefit of booking with us instead of a large restaurant or hotel is that you will have sole use of our bistro, service will be specific to your party only, menus can be individually tailored & we have a selection of fine wines & locally sourced ales.  We can also arrange a speciality cake if required

Formal Dining – We specialise in corporate/ formal dining for numbers up to 500+ at your chosen venue. We are the nominated caterers for a number of prestigious venues primarily throughout the East Midlands, Derbyshire & Staffordshire areas, however our events team will travel anywhere in the UK.

Wedding Catering – We are one of the leading wedding caterers in the Midlands & have a diverse selection of venues to recommend (including marquees).  In addition to our wedding catering, we can offer a bar service & event planning to ensure that your wedding is co-ordinated by one team.  Please see our wedding page for further details.

Event Management – We are passionate about events and all our events staff are dedicated to providing quality service whilst giving your event a unique identity. We have a strong influence in the hospitality sector and work alongside highly professional companies who are as energetic about your needs as we are.

Gourmet Evenings – We hold  speciality evenings throughout the year (see our calendar of events page) including Wine Tasting, Russian Banquets, Burns Night, Taste of Game, Lobster & Seafood & themed evenings

Hen & Stag nights – We can provide bespoke in-house dining for your celebration with a complete chef & waiter service, plus a demonstration of ‘spun sugar’ at the table to your guests (if required!). We can highly recommend Peak District accommodation at, or alternatively there is self contained accommodation in beautifully renovated Victorian stables local to The Butlers Pantry with excellent meeting & conference rooms at
