Available May through September.

With “drop off” catering, we deliver the food to you on the day.
The delivery will include all serving instructions as well as serving tongs and china serving platters. We collect the unwashed catering equipment from you the next working day or a time that suits you. The food would be delivered to you in iced down igloos
and you can leave the food in these igloos until you are ready to serve it.
