For both public or private events we can serve inside or outside. We have recently converted a vintage Horse Box which adds theatre to any event. We also have a flexible setup which is by way of a Gazebo with a serving counter so we can comfortably cater any type of event.
We are fully self contained and can prepare our food with or without electricity. Our gazebo is 3m x 3m with an additional 1.5m width needed for our smokers. We transport all our equipment in our branded VW Transporter T5 and require access during both setup and service so ideally parking close to the gazebo would be preferred. IF electricity is available, 2 x 13a (or 1 x 26a) with a 10m extension would be welcomed.
For the horse box set up, we would require a a level footing and ideally an electric feed via an extension cable (provided). Please contact us for further information or to discuss further.
