Since 1986 we have hosted many events; weddings, birthdays, Christmas parties, retirement parties, wine society dinners, wakes, corporate product announcements, employee and customer appreciation events, etc. Some events have been in the parklands, some on the patio, some in the pub, others in the restaurant or our meeting rooms. The food has varied from stand up hors d'oeuvres to a sit down six course meals.
We cater business meetings, social events, private jets, the off-shore and various other groups. We are experienced at delivering a wide variety of offerings ranging from breakfast baskets to gourmet dinners. The only limitations we encounter are lead time to source the ingredients and the availability of facilities and equipment at the client's location.
