Private Catering

Private Bespoke Dining

Our team can provide a private dinner party for you either in your own home or chosen venue.  We have a sample menu below, or can design a bespoke menu for you.

Our team arrive approx 1-2 hrs prior to service, set the table for you, serve your own pre-dinner drinks (with canapés if required), serve the meal & clear away.  All you need to do is enjoy time with your guests!
