What our Customers say


The chef was great. The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious, just like we’d requested. We had Asian this time and look forward to trying another cuisine the next time we book


Delicious and filling experience! Chef Mark was fantastic. He cooked up a feast with our party saying it was the best lunch they’ve ever had. We had a concoction of British, American and Mexican dishes that were out of this world. We highly recommend Chef Mark and look forward to booking him for a dinner soon.


We ordered for a work party for our team of 20 people. The food was delicious. All the allergies and food preferences like gluten-free were taken care of. Truly the flavours took us away.

Our Top FAQs

What equipment do I need to provide?

Our chefs usually use the equipment (pots, pans, oven, stone etc), and serve ware (glasses, plates, serving platters, etc) in the customers homes. If you are low on equipment or need the chef to provide this, please add this into your request (this will cost extra). Once booked in, you can directly message or call your chef to confirm on the exact equipment required. In case of BBQ equipment, we suggest hiring from AllensHire as the best option as they deliver within 48 hours and offer both charcoal and gas BBQs.

What is the minimum spend?

The minimum spend is £196.

What happens once I book?

Once you have placed your order, you will receive a booking confirmation e-mail containing further details pertaining to your event and you can also chat with the chef via your account. You can always edit guest number or dishes post booking.

Yes, you can suggest any dishes you’d like to your chef and work with them to co-create a menu that takes care of all your guests’ preferences as well as dietary restrictions.

Hire Caterers for Outside Events 

Caterers can help make your event special wherever you host it. There are all sorts of caterers who specialise in various functions, such as venue caterers who know how to organise inside catering for events like weddings and mobile caterers who make it easy to serve food at large events. 

Some caterers specialise in serving great food at outdoor events. The food served at these events can range from casual grub to delicious canapés and everything in between. If you’re planning on hosting an outdoor event and are interested in outdoor catering, you should use yhangry to connect with the best local caterers. 

BBQs and Hog Roasts

If you’re throwing a big event, you could do worse than hiring a caterer to provide you with a rich, hearty BBQ or delicious hog roast complete with mouthwatering meats, sumptuous side dishes and luscious salads. You can offer your guests a huge range of BBQ foods, such as grilled steaks and pork chops for your meat-loving guests and grilled aubergines or courgettes for your vegetarian and vegan guests. 

BBQs and hog roasts give your event a casual, informal tone, which is great for networking and bonding with friends and family. 

Afternoon Tea

Hearty BBQs aren’t the only outside catering on offer. There are also great afternoon tea caterers who can help you spoil your guests with delicious sweet and savoury treats. You can hire a caterer to offer the full traditional afternoon tea experience with finger sandwiches, miniature cakes and savoury pastries. 

Afternoon tea is a popular option for weddings as it allows guests to mingle and not have to bother with a heavy sit-down meal. But you can also have afternoon tea at smaller intimate gatherings.

Buffet Catering

No matter what event you’re hosting, a buffet could be perfect for your outdoor event. A buffet can suit every function and offers guests various cuisines – perfect for a large event where you may be unsure of each guest’s particular dietary needs. With so many options, there’s always something for everyone at a buffet. 

Buffets are great for corporate events, as they don’t restrict movement and are great for mingling. They are also great for get-togethers like Christmas parties, office parties and children’s birthdays.

What are the disadvantages of outdoor catering?

Outdoor catering is a great option to have. However, there are downsides to it. Food might take longer to get to you, it might take longer to set up, and it is generally more expensive than mobile catering.

What are the advantages of using an outside catering company?

Although there are some negatives involved with outside catering, there are plenty of benefits. Outside catering doesn’t take up too much space and crowd the venue; there is no congestion around the food, which means it’s much easier to serve all your guests, meaning none of them will need to go hungry.
