Full Description
We provide a number of catering options, specialising in hog roast banquets. We also offer a delicious range of evening food options to soak up the alcohol and keep you going through the ceilidh, right up to a full package starting with canapés, through drinks reception, three hog roast banquet, tea and coffee service and running the bar into the evening. We can arrange everything from table and chair hire, to crockery, cutlery and glass hire. We can provide staff to set up, dress the tables, run a bar and clear down. We take as much off your hands as you're comfortable with, so that you can rest assured that your day will run seamlessly. We do not have a standard package - each one is completely bespoke and tailored exactly to your needs. Our chefs are unbelievably passionate about cooking. We locally source our ingredients wherever possible, and cook everything fresh onsite. We take pride in everything that leaves our kitchen, so we can guarantee you'll never be disappointed. Eliese has been co-ordinating weddings as part of her family business at Plane Castle for over three years, and has a meticulous eye for detail and planning, so you can be sure that your day will be everything you dreamed of, and more.

Personal Message from the Manager

Hi, I've been co-ordinating and catering for weddings for a number of years at Plane Castle. I decided to branch out a couple of years ago, and provide wedding catering out with the castle. We really do love what we do, which shines through in our work. We have the passion, personality and skills to make your day everything you dreamed of. Kind regards, Eliese

Nothing but praise
Thank you so much Sonja, Steve, Elise, James & rest of the staff for making our son & daughter in law Rikki & Demi's wedding just perfect. We have nothing but praise for everyone of you. This place is a hidden Gem & loved the few days stay. Everything went great on the day/night & so glad they chose Plane Castle for there venue. The food was absolutely amazing (still forgot my deserts lol). We just felt so relaxed as you all had everything under control. Felt like one big happy family. Sonja I can't believe the times you were just there when needed from directions to tears, you are amazing. I wish everyone of you, special people the very, very best in life. This is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you so much. Love from Joyce & George xx p.s sorry about Charlie, Steve lol

Engagement party
Thank you so much Eliese and James! The food you provided for our engagement party was delicious, and you were so professional and accommodating from our very first email. You made sure there were options for guests with a range of dietary requirements which was hugely appreciated! Would recommend anyone looking for a delicious hog roast and friendly service to book with Cat and Turtle :)

Huge success!
Had the Cat & Turtle to our day after wedding celebrations in July 2019 and they were fantastic. Great efficiency in the lead up discussions, very accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble. The new potatoes with vegan butter were a huge success and the hog roast was delicious! Thank you to Elise and James.

Fabulous
Don’t be mislead-no cats or turtles come to harm as you tuck into the delicious hog roast! We had a fabulous 50th birthday celebration last weekend-with Leonie and Chloe serving with smiles on their faces and a cheerful approach to making our evening special! Right from the initial booking enquiry our experience was very positive - very efficient and easy to work with. We would highly recommend them and would definitely book again-thanks so much!

Everything was perfect. You make a fantastic team and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. Thanks again, Rikki and Demi xx

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Remember it is YOUR day. It's not your sisters, not your mothers, not your mother-in-law-to-be's, not your photographers, not your wedding planners, and not anybody else's but YOURS!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Usually there are a fair few emails back and forth to determine what kind of service you're looking for and roughly how much this would cost. Generally, we would then arrange for you to come and visit us for a tasting session and a chat about everything from the food to the way you met, to your pets and how you're planning your wedding day to run.

What about your business are you most proud of?

We could say something cheesy like "honey, because it's so sweet like love", but we won't. The food of love is whatever food you love!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Where would I begin? There was the one where the bride had arranged real life replicas of the Starwars cast to turn up midway through the ceremony. There was the one where they had a marquee filled with inflatable penguins. There was the one where the best man had arranged for a troupe of breakdancers to come in and take over the first dance. I have so many fantastic memories from the weddings I've worked over the years, it'd be impossible to pinpoint the "most" memorable! Every wedding is special and memorable in its own way - as cheesy as that may sound!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

We catered for a couple in a 16th century manor on a Scottish island and they asked for a medieval themed menu. We came up with a number of dishes that were both visually appealing and gastronomically impressive, whilst also managing to fit in with a medieval era - when they wouldn't have had access to the range of kitchen equipment and ingredients we have now! For example, for dessert we prepared red wine poached pears served with honey comb and ice cream, and honey pannacotta with ginger and date cake and baked fruit.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Again, a hard question to answer! After every single wedding, I end it on a complete high because I am SO proud of the service my team and I achieve and deliver, time and time again.

How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?

Maldons sea salt, butter, cream.... surely any good chef couldn't disagree! Or are we supposed to say "love"?
