Our food is great but dont take it from me, look at the awards we have won and the feedback we get its makes us all fuzzy here in the office and we love nothing more than hearing people say that was amazing and they love it that much they cant wait to get back to the table and start it before they get back to their seats. Email me for any information or have a look at our website for some inspiration

Yum diddly umdum
The catering we had booked was seamless, from the 1st contact emails were answered quickly which was helpful with planning, if we had any questions we could pick up the phone and nothing was too much trouble. For our wedding breakfast we had the American Smoker, we have been to america several times and love there way they do bbq, so we wanted the same for our wedding, these were the only guys we could find doing what we wanted it, the beef brisket was so juicy and the longboats sausages, we had a guest who had 4! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend, the staff, service and food were all excellent.
