The Dinner Service specialises in tailoring your menus specifically for you. It's therefore difficult to to write a list of menu options available because we strive to provide everything you might want!
Whether we are catering for a formal dinner, serving at a wedding, providing an informal family style service, running a barbeque on the beach or catering in a village hall, every function will be equal in importance and standard.
All dietary needs can be catered for!
We particularly enjoy 'themed' menus, which give us the opportunity to explore other cultures and cuisines - a challenge but one that we greatly enjoy! Some sample themed menus are available below in addition to just a 'taster' of our more regular offerings.
Please contact us with your requirements and let's discuss all the options. Not forgetting our traditional Hog Roast service, everyone's favourite.
