Funeral Catering FAQs

Each event will be very different. Our services are charged at a “per head” rate with VAT charged at 20%. Every menu includes uniformed waiting staff to set up, serve and clear away. Unlimited tea & coffee with white classic tea plates, cups, saucers and white napkins. Table linen, glassware, floral arrangements are all additional costs and will be clearly stated on your quotation. If you have a budget in mind and would like to share that with us we can create a menu with the best options available.

Should you wish for us to deliver the food, we will deliver at an agreed time to your chosen venue. All of our food will be delivered chilled in recyclable packaging. This is black platters with clear lids and white cardboard boxes with window lids. All food is labelled in line with food safety guidelines. We will of course lay the food out for you as a buffet.

This is the impossible question that everyone asks. It is so difficult to predict but we do have some guidance that we can discuss with you as there are lots of varying factors.

We will happily discuss the options available to ease your concerns. It goes without saying we always bring extra cups, saucers and plates.

We will ask all the questions we need to know but it would be worth considering if there is anyone amongst your family and friends who has a specific dietary need/ vegetarian or vegan so that they can be catered for.

We are an independent family run business. Louise & Alice (Partners & sisters) will take care of you from the very start. Our mum, Mary works full time for the business and is as passionate about service as we are. Our reputation speaks before us, we have spent time alone in many private homes setting up for a funeral wake and it is important that you feel at ease with the caterer you use and trust. We do not want you to have to organise anything which is why our packages are tailored to include everything.

We are passionate to support local businesses and more importantly local produce. This is a difficult time for you, it is important that we lessen the load and you take time to care for yourself.

Helpful and attentive

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all of your wonderful team for doing the catering at my mum’s funeral. Apart from the delicious food, which was beautifully presented, the way you all did it was so lovely. You were helpful and attentive and looked after us so well without being obtrusive. Thank you, I wish you and your company well.
