Frequently Asked Questions

Weddings

How much food should I allow per person. What is the norm?
It all depends on the type of reception. If its a buffet then usually six pieces per guest; if it is canapés and drinks before a full, sit down meal then three. Canapes are priced individually but we will be happy to create mixed trays at special prices depending on the overall choice from our stunning array on offer. The best thing is to book a consultation with our expert chefs who will be delighted to discuss all the various options and combinations with you so that you make the perfect choice for your perfect day.

What is the best time to serve canapes at a reception?
Give your guests plenty of time to have a drink and indulge in our delicious canapes allowing them time to catch up with old friends, meet new ones and soak up the fun. We suggest serving canapes two hours before your sit down meal, usually when the family photos are being taken. 

What is included in the price?
All figures that we quote  are for food only but include VAT .Everything else – from waitress service, tables, special equipment like outside kitchens, flowers and table dressings and ‘fun’etc — is extra but will be itemised and quoted in advance.

Corporate meetings

Is it just sandwiches that you do for staff and customer meetings?
Absolutely not!! Our sandwiches are pretty imaginative and much loved but we really push the boundaries with our creative range – everything from working breakfasts to bespoke corporate picnic boxes for everything from staff outings to client entertaining or away day seminars. Formal boardroom lunches are just as much part of our offer as a small, stylish cocktail party with elegant canapés and sophisticated buffet.

Our Company doesn’t have a boardroom or meeting rooms – can you help?
No problem – we have our own dedicated meeting rooms at Poundbury which can be booked for both large and small groups. If you want an outdoor location for a special client or staff event we can even offer you some suggestions too! 

Food intolerances or special dietary requirements – can you cope with these?
Our expert  chefs are all nutritional specialists whose specific training has meant that there is no dietary requirement or food intolerance issue that they have not encountered. Their stunning food creations are bespoke to both every occasion and every nutritional necessity.
