Full Description
One thing we have learned at The Secret Restaurant is that everyone approaches weddings in their own individual way. Some people like us to take care of everything, from the venue; the marquee; the toilets; the fireworks; and of course the food - while others do everything themselves and just ask us to provide the food in a venue they have chosen. You may want a formal dinner in a beautiful country house or a barbecue and gypsy swing party in a field in the woods. From elegant canapés to pulled pork rolls with Boston baked beans everything will be delicious. Have what your heart desires, it's your day and we will help as much or as little as you'd like. Whatever you choose, we will help you to make it perfect, with just a little free advice or as a project manager. We are happy to provide whatever level of service you require and then work to the budget you provide, making the whole experience trouble free and enjoyable! We are completely independent and do not work at one specific venue. The Secret Restaurant has earned its reputation in Sussex as a high end, quality caterer by consistently providing imaginative and tasty food for its clients. Now preferred caterer at Brighton Dome, Brighton Royal Pavilion, The Old Market, Florence House, Leeds Castle Grounds (Kent), Brighton Sea Life Centre, Hendall Manor Barns and other exclusive venues in and around Sussex, Surrey and the South East.

What is your most memorable wedding?

The most memorable wedding are always the ones where the bride and groom really get involved. The one in the back garden where the bride had folded 1000 origami cranes and the groom hung them all from the ceiling of the marquee - I even remember the grapefruit gin and yuzu cocktail they invented for the day and the Kar age burgers for late night snacks with their silent disco!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Rustic, relaxed, fun, current, flavoursome!

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our fabulous staff and their approach to food and service - what a team!

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

Relax, enjoy yourselves - get into it and don't let one person bear the whole burden!

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

Where the bride had folded 1000 origami cranes and the groom hung them all from the ceiling of the marquee.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We meet the couple once we have worked out an initial quote. We try to do the tasting at this meeting and then talk through the whole day, creating a function sheet and fine tuning the menu. We might then need to do a site visit if the venue is not known to us. Beyond that we are there to answer any questions at any time and will lead the couple through the process until the day.

How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?

Any of our chefs would wow the master chef judges!

What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?

That would be our secret...

What is the food of love?
