Event and outside caterers, Essex based Plenty of Thyme are delivering!!


Specialist outside caterers, Essex based Plenty of Thyme, are here to cure your lockdown blues by delivering their delicious food straight to your door! Just because the pubs are shut during this latest lockdown, it doesn’t mean you should be deprived of gorging yourself silly on Plenty of Thyme’s amazing gourmet burgers, incredible wood-fired pizzas, and mouth-watering Sunday Roasts!

Since partnering with The Cricketers Inn in Chelmsford, Plenty of Thyme has been busy, keeping up with the demand for quality food from the customers of this traditional British pub. But since the latest round of lockdowns, the pub has had to temporarily shut its doors. Which has meant tough luck if you wanted to eat some delicious pub grub…

But do not fear! Dave and his team at Plenty of Thyme are here to save the day by offering both a takeaway and delivery service, every Friday through to Sunday! So you can still enjoy the incredible flavours of Plenty of Thyme’s heartwarming food from the comfort of your own home!

The takeaway and delivery service is available Friday and Saturday from 5 pm – 8 pm, with a Sunday Roast takeaway and delivery service available from 12 pm – 4 pm, each Sunday.

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!?
