Delivery option

If you don’t want full-service catering, we can deliver a selection of canapés and finger foods to you, either on disposable trays or on platters that we collect again later.
Whether you just want a small selection for pre-dinner drinks, or a full buffet’s worth as a hearty alternative to a meal, we are sure to have options that suit your tastes and budget!
