Answering the What, Why, When and the “not too sure” questions - also known as FAQ’s

To ensure that every part of the occasion we are catering for runs smoothly, however big or small, we have given some thought to common questions and more importantly answers that at the planning stage seem so obvious they get looked over.

  • Will you help set up our venue? Supply tables, chairs and bar? Supply Linen, glasswares, crockery and cutlery?

    We are happy to be involved in the setting up of your venue. It’s important for us to know where our allotted spaces will be on the day and in relation to chiller units/storage.

    We can provide solutions for the positioning of tables and chairs, bar area and serving area (if a buffet option is your style of meal).

    We have an extensive collection of vintage and retro china, glassware and cutlery with tablecloths and linens to complete your individual style.  which are available for hire for your occasion.

    – please see gallery for photographs – 

    We have a built up excellent working relationships with many local suppliers Marquee Companies, Catering Supplies and micro Brewery's with whom we can liaise on your behalf.

  • Can you supply staff on the day including bar staff?

    After our initial discussions we will provide a quotation based on your requirements and this will include our estimation of how many of our team will support the advance party on the day.

    Dependant on how many guests, we work on 2 – 3 for set up and kitchen prep with required numbers to keep the occasion running smoothly arriving approximately 1 hour before your party commences.

    Bar staff can be with us for the whole event or part thereof.

  • Can we change our mind?

    In our experience not many people have it all worked out and ready to book when their first meet us to discuss the big day.  In the initial planning stages lots of ideas, along with suggestions from everyone involved normally mean changes take place.  All we ask is that any changes, however small they may seem, be advised to us as soon as you make them!  We try to be as flexible as possible and will always endeavour to accommodate your amendments where at all possible.

  • Can we supply part of the meal?

    Certainly! It’s good to know well in advance who is responsible for what and, whether the part of the meal you supply will require cooling, heating etc... 

  • Do we need to pay a deposit?

    Yes, please! We ask for a 25% non-refundable deposit of the accepted quotation cost, this reserves Good for a Party team for your occasions date.
