Christmas catering buffets

Your menu choices are governed by the cooking facilities available at your premises. However, we can hire all necessary equipment required for your Christmas catering.

Here are some examples from our repertoire, but please call us to discuss your specific requirements. We are always happy to create bespoke Christmas menus.

Christmas lunch can take many forms, from an informal catering buffet to a formal fine dining experience.

Why not enhance your traditional Christmas menu with one of our chefs carving the turkey in front of your guests?

Instead of the ubiquitous turkey why not offer a traditional roast rib of beef or a goose magret?
