nothing is too much trouble

Not ‘just’ caterers

When booking a venue with external caterers, often the task can seem quite daunting. That’s where we come in.

We have been catering for weddings and events for over 30 years and we’ll make sure the food is the talking point on the day, for all the right reasons! We use Cumbrian meat, local suppliers and well trained friendly local staff.

From the early planning stages developing the menu, to the big day itself, we’ll help you along the way. We have a fantastic kitchen team that can work in multiple venues with and without facilities to provide a restaurant quality meal.

Start Planning

it’s what we do

Take away the stress

One of the key things we do is completely take away the stress from your wedding.

Speaking to couples after the wedding they often say that although the food was fantastic it is the little things that they notice, for example how friendly the staff are. The fact that someone looked after granny, dealt with awkward band members and generally kept the day flowing.

We’re on your side

Here to help

When planning a wedding you have to consider the possibility that something may go wrong and you need people on your side that care enough to sort it out.

We’ve had various incidents over the years which are never regarding the food. The brides car broke down on the way to the venue so we sent someone out to collect her, we’ve sewn buttons on, glued heels on, managed to get a generator at the last minute when a major storm left us without lights and heating. We even rescued the Bride’s dog from under the jetty!

If you book us for your wedding you’ll know that in adversity we will never say the immortal words “its not our problem”.

Tom and I wanted to take the opportunity to say a HUGE thank you, to you and your wonderful team for the catering and service you provided on the 7th December for our wedding at New House Farm.

I have attached a few photos you may want to see of the venue/menu etc… Unfortunately there wasn’t any of the food! We wish you all the best of luck for your 2020 events.

  • Caroline & Matt - Longlands - 28/9/19 Dear Charlotte and the team, Thank you so much for doing the catering at our wedding in September. Charlotte you were absolutely brilliant with all the organising ahead of the day and we're so pleased we decided to go with you after the initial meeting we had in crook! The actual food on the day was so delicious which meant we didn't end up leaving our table to say hello to our guests! Whoops! Whenever we talk to people about the wedding they mention the food, particularly the lamb and that Mac and Cheese! BIG compliments to the chef!! Thank you also to all your wonderful waiting on staff who worked so hard to make the day run smoothly (sorry for any glitches that arose on the day, like the timings!) We really appreciate all your efforts and will definitely be recommending you to anyone else we know getting married in the are! Many thanks again, Caroline & Matt xx

  • Jen & Alex - Silverholme - 7th/8th/9th June 2019 We just wanted to say thank you again for your fantastic help over our wedding weekend. Not only was the food impeccable (all of our guests were raving about it) but the organisation, planning and execution from you and your team was superb. From the start of the process you have been helpful, informative and efficient. The whole weekend was seamless and the phrase “on it” doesn’t even come close! Your team of caterers were professional, skilful and thoughtful (we appreciated the emergency canape run whilst we were stuck having photos outside!) We especially appreciated the work you put in across the entire weekend – so we could go on and enjoy ourselves with our friends and family. Down to the last detail, everything had been considered (not lest the beautiful re-vamp of the bar/marquee on the Sunday morning to take in the sun) and we would not have been able to have such an amazing time without your help. A really special moment for me was when you had asked about speech length – just so the chef could time the steaks to perfection. They were of course, perfect. You [...]

  • How time flies by... we're sorry for not writing sooner. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so successful.  We are absolutely thrilled with how everything went, not least the food! Telling us we sounded like 'food people' sealed the deal.  We know lots of food people tt and they all loved it. We've been to lots of weddings so know that delivering food for that many isn't easy but you executed brilliantly.  Thanks for all your support in the run-up. Happy Christmas to you and all the Rhodes family. Love Chris & Anna - Silverholme - 30th September 2017
