Perfect events, sourced, prepared & delivered

We are based in Ipswich, Suffolk, but regularly nip across all of Suffolk, Essex and London to cater for some wonderful people.

Our job is to give you exceptional food and attentive, personal service. Your very own catering team.

Each and every menu is considered, dishes have been tried and tested, seasonality is prioritised, local produce is used (when it’s the best we can get) and above all we serve tasty food.

Our experience and your ideas equals a rather good party , a very special and unique wedding, a stand out corporate do, or productive meeting (we do those too!).

Every party needs a talked about drinks offer, our wine list fills that spec but we can always expand on that with cocktails, ales, malt whiskies, premium vodka, gin and liqueurs. Talk to us.

As you would expect, we make everything to order, even our bread. We cater to your every requirement.
