Food Enthusiasts

Brought together in 2012, our small but diverse team combines over 30 years experience in the restaurant and catering industry.


The team includes a sous chef and up to 3 assistant cooks and kitchen staff, and is made up of people that have worked alongside Head Chef Simon for many years. Together we have a wealth of knowledge and experience catering for events of kinds, from weddings to corporate events, and from mud runs to photo and film shoots.

Tailoring To Your Needs

We believe in good value, and we’ll cater to your taste and to your budget. A great way to get things just right for your event is to book a tasting session.


Based at a farm in Kent, close to the famous Howletts Zoo, our newly built commercial grade kitchen is well equipped for preparing high quality food. Depending on your event and venue, dishes will be readied at Woolton Farm and then, where ever possible, freshly cooked on site with our mobile kitchen equipment. We can produce a massive range of dishes both in small and large quantities for up to 500 people. Check out our menus.

Seasonal Recipes

We love seasonal recipes that depend on fresh and flavoursome seasonal food.


We have price in our reputation with the local community and our business ethos is local sourcing, believing that money spent in the local community stays in the community.


Our wide range of carefully chosen suppliers includes local farmers, farm shoots, game shoots, and fishermen. They include: Gibsons Pork and Gibsons Farm Shop, Turners Game, Chandler & Dunn beef, Wingham Country Market, Q Gascgoine Supplies, The Goods Shed, Canterbury and many others.

Traditional Hog Roast

Custom made by our blacksmith neighbour at Woolton Farm (everyone should have a smithy next door), our wrought iron and riveted spit really looks the part.
To pack the meat with proper barbeque flavour, we cook with proper charcoal produced on site at Woolton Farm – by woodsman extraordinaire Andrew Kirby. A great addition to a country wedding or events, we use only locally grown free range pork or lamb.

Table Service

We pride ourselves on smart and efficient table service, and we have a number of regular waiters and waitresses on hand.


Smartly dressed and carefully trained, the number of service staff can be tailored to your event’s size and needs. If you have a themed event, we can even adjust our outfits (as well as our general presentation and service) to suit the mood of both formal and more relaxed events.


Wedding receptions are our speciality and our food and service are well honed and exacting.


Building on over 20 years experience with weddings and all types of events, we’ve seen where others have cut corners and know what makes for consistently delicious food and great service every time.
