Brazilian BBQs

Our popular Brazilian BBQ parties in London are the perfect way to entertain staff and guests this summer

Caribbean BBQs

The French cuisine in Martinique is reminiscent of Provence and the Mediterranean. Cuba gives us plenty of Spanish dishes and Jamaica probably has the most famous of all BBQ catering foods: the ubiquitous jerk chicken

American BBQs

American BBQ catering – ideal for informal corporate parties in London

Greek BBQs

One of the pioneering BBQ catering companies in London, Smith’s has been organising Greek BBQs for corporate events for more than 10 years

Wedding BBQs

Looking for informal wedding BBQ themes instead of a classic wedding breakfast for your big day?

Indoor BBQs

Indoor BBQ catering is perfect for informal events. Instead of a single hot fork main, let guests graze on a spread of small, hot bites throughout the evening

BigPan BBQs

Big Pan BBQ, with a chef cooking live, is the ideal BBQ catering option for London events with up to 150 guests

1How much does BBQ catering cost?

The average cost per person is £15 plus VAT. However, Smith’s BBQ menus vary widely in requirements and therefore cost. Delivery, equipment hire (incl. service equipment, glassware, tables/linens, marquees, etc.), staff, and other extras are quoted by event. Check our dedicated menu pages for specifics:

2What is the minimum order for BBQ catering?

The minimum order for most of our corporate BBQ catering menus is 40 people. For indoor BBQs, Big Pan, and private BBQ parties, we ask for a minimum of 50.

When booking, please bear in mind that June and July tend to be our busiest months and sell out quickly. So get your orders in early to avoid disappointment.

3How much BBQ will I need per person?

We usually recommend at least 9 kilos of cooked meat for the minimum (corporate catering) order of 40. For vegan and vegetarian alternatives, allow a minimum of one main per person.

4Where do you source your meat?

We only work with suppliers who share our high standards for produce. These include:

  • Master sausage maker Jean Paul at Franconian, who’ll custom-make any sausage you want
  • Award-winning butchers Godfrey’s for 100% Aberdeen Angus burgers
  • Billingsgate fish market
  • HFA-certified suppliers for halal meats as required

5What alternatives do you offer for special dietary preferences / requirements?

We provide a range of meat- and dairy-free alternatives to suit the theme of each menu. These include halloumi burgers, roasted vegetable burritos, and spicy stuffed aubergine (see menus for more). We can also provide gluten- or dairy-free breads, and meet religious requirements.

None of our menus are “set” and we’re always happy to create bespoke menus to suit any themed event. Last season our chefs created a special Hawaiian menu for a company staff day, serving custom banana daiquiris to the hula- and lei-wearing guests.

6Do you provide staff and equipment?

Yes. On request, we’ll provide all your service and bar staff, as well as kitchen and serving equipment. This includes tables, linens, crockery, cutlery, glassware, etc.

Disposable platters with lids are supplied at £1.50 each.

Indoor BBQ catering includes a chef, waiting staff, and chafing dishes as standard.

7Can Smith’s provide mobile BBQ catering?

Yes. We can provide all types of BBQ catering, including mobile BBQs for outdoor events and pop-up venues, as well as in-house classic BBQs with chefs and serving staff.

8Where do you deliver in London?

We can deliver to venues in South London (including South West and East) and Greater London.

9Do you provide BBQ catering outside London?

Yes! We’ve opened a new creative “kitchen laboratory” off the M25 to serve venues in Surrey and Kent.

Delivery charge is calculated by postcode and finalised at 12 noon 3 working days prior to your event. It cannot be lowered after this time but if your requirements change may be raised accordingly.

There is also a collection charge, calculated by postcode, for pick-up of any equipment.

10What about drinks?

We can provide all types of drinks, including free glass hire. All drinks are supplied sale-or-return and wine rates.
