If you have an event coming up, drop us an email at or complete the form. Let our Catering Manager propose a perfect menu for your occasion, or pick exactly what you want from our menu selections. You can either arrange a collection from one of our delis or let us deliver to your doorstep anywhere in Greater London, Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.

We lean on our fantastic chefs, bartenders and waiting team to create unforgettable events and are happy to assist with presenting your food, cooking at your event, arranging staff or simply delivering your food.
