Catering options


There are many factors to consider when organising a corporate event, but call us biased if we don’t think the most important is catering…I mean, it’s what we do of course! And as the premier corporate caterers in Essex, we have some fantastic options that would suit any type of summer work party or corporate event.

The services we offer for corporate catering include:

BBQ – Is there anything more glorious than the smell of delicious meat on the grill on a summer’s day? We don’t think so! Our BBQ menu is perfect for a staff summer party, giving your staff the freedom to eat what they want, when they want. All of our meats and fish are marinated in our homemade sauces for 24 hours prior to the event, and are slowly cooked to perfection over carefully selected coals for an even more intense flavour! Our BBQ service also includes a variety of sumptuous side dishes and fresh salads, as well as all of your favourite condiments and salad dressings. We provide the staff to cook and serve, and we clear everything away when everyone is full!

Street Food – Another popular option for staff events is our street food service. This includes our gorgeous gourmet burgers (beef, chicken or black bean burger on a plain or brioche bun, with a range of toppings), wonderful wraps (which you can build yourself from a variety of fillings), and heavenly hog roasts (served with apple sauce and stuffing). This is a really popular option as it offers something for everyone!

Buffet – A great option for corporate meetings or informal staff gatherings. Our buffet service goes beyond your usual buffet fayre, we create mind-blowing dishes using the freshest ingredients which we can either serve for you or deliver for your convenience. Examples of dishes include pork, chorizo and black pudding sausage rolls, Cornish brie and cranberry tarts, citrus-infused wood chip salmon and king prawn skewers with lemon and chilli. This is one buffet we guarantee your clients or staff will never forget!

Sit Down Meal – Or if you really want to push the boat out and prefer a more formal meal, our sit down corporate catering is second to none! We will prepare, cook and serve a feast for the senses, across as many courses as you wish. We work closely with you to ensure the menu offers exactly what you want, and we promise to exceed your wildest imaginations! A sample 3-course menu could include braised ham hock terrine, compressed apple, red current gel and brioche for starters, pan-fried chicken supreme, parmesan croquette, sweet potato puree, tender stem broccoli, roast shallots and jus for mains, with a lemon & stem ginger cheesecake, candied lemon and raspberries for dessert. Now that’s what we call heaven!


And don’t worry! We also cater for special dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. All you need to do is let us know of any dietary requirements prior to the event and we will accommodate without sacrificing on flavour.
