The Best Food Catering Essex Has!

Award-winning experts in food catering Essex based Plenty of Thyme, are pleased to announce they have partnered with The Cricketers pub in Chelmsford, Essex. We can now offer you quality British food, at a reasonable price, whilst you enjoy a beer or two in this traditional pub setting!


The world has changed so much in the last 8 months. As a thriving 5* event catering company, we were looking forward to a hectic Summer and Autumn filled with weddings, birthday parties and corporate events. Unfortunately, COVID came along and one by one our scheduled events have had to postpone until next year. So to adapt to the current climate, it made perfect sense to partner with a local pub….allowing our team to do what they do best and continue to offer our delicious food to you!!

And what better pub to partner with than The Cricketers? This traditional British pub is a hub for the local community, offering a fantastic range of local beers and ales (as well as having excellent sports coverage too). Sensing a gap in the market in the area for some fresh, home-cooked food, Plenty of Thyme stepped up to deliver a delicious menu available to customers old and new.

As the best food catering Essex can offer, Plenty of Thyme’s owner and head chef, Dave Double, had this to say about the new partnership – “Before COVID it was never in our plans to take up a permanent residency at any venue. We had so many bookings all over the county that dedicating our services to one site would not have been viable. With things the way they are it made total sense to partner with a venue that fitted in with our ethos of delivering delicious, heartwarming food at a reasonable price. We could not be more delighted to be working at The Cricketers, a beautiful pub in a great area with a wonderful clientele. I and the team have worked hard to create a menu that is unique, competitively priced and tasty, making use of local produce as much as possible. It is an exciting time for us and we are very much looking forward to our time here at The Cricketers!”

The menu reflects the best food catering Essex boasts and includes a variety of small plate options, including Essex pork and Bramley apple sausage rolls, deep-fried calamari and crispy ham hock balls. There are also British pub classics available such as handmade pies with mashed potatoes and traditional fish and chips. To top it off, every Sunday Dave and the team will be serving a scrumptious Sunday roast, which is not to be missed! You can view the full menu here.


So what are you waiting for?? You know that when it comes to food catering Essex based Plenty of Thyme delivers beautifully presented food which tickles the taste buds and warms the soul! Contact The Cricketers today to book yourself a table. For any other queries please feel free to contact Dave and the team here.

BBQ Catering

The most popular catering to serve at a fireworks show or bonfire party is the BBQ. Juicy, smokey, and lip-smacking good, BBQ catering is always a sure crowd-pleaser.

With 100% fresh meat all prepared in advance to achieve full flavour and cooked to perfection in carefully selected high-quality charcoal, it’s a perfect option for your outside evening catering.

While you may think BBQ catering is exclusive to just meat eaters, Plenty Of Thyme makes sure to offer superb vegetarian items just as delicious as the meat options. What’s more, our team will pitch up, provide everything your guests could possibly need – cutlery, plates, condiments – and clear up as if we were never there. It really is as easy as hiring Plenty Of Thyme and knowing everything to do with catering is under control and taken care of!


Wood Fired Pizza Catering

If you like the BBQ idea, but want something a little more unique, our Wood Fired Pizza catering might just be for you. Handmade, topped on-site and cooked in under 90 seconds, our pizzas are loved by all!

As always, Plenty Of Thyme believes everybody deserves awesome food. As well as vegan and vegetarian options, we also cater to gluten and dairy allergies, so everyone can have a safe, tasty pizza.

Our Wood Fired Pizza catering is another great option for your Guy Fawkes Night event. It’s perfect for outside venues, affordable, and a great option if you are struggling to find catering everyone will enjoy. Who doesn’t like pizza!?
