Great British Catering Options You Should Consider For Your Event

These time-honoured classics will help you mark the occasion–whatever that may be–in true British style, with hits that don’t often miss.

  1. Fish and Chips

Yes, we all love fish and chips! Imagine the perfect herb-roasted chip, browned to crunch-on-he-outside-buttery-on-the-inside goodness and beer-battered cod. Nothing gets the mood of a party going like great food, and fish and chips done right is the perfect illustration. Easy to serve buffet style– pair with a good pint and some quality tartar sauce for a simple yet fantastic meal that will have everybody well fed and happy.

  1. Hog Roast

This inspired idea is perfect for large parties and has the versatility you need, hog roasts feed a large number of guests at an affordable price. Choose from different rubs like BBQ, Moroccan, Jerk, or Smoked; stuff with anything from apple and chestnuts to sage and thyme sausage to apple and rosemary or garlic-seasoned stuffing. Add a salad for a light, fresh side to balance out the meal: Nicoise, Caesar, Waldorf, or Coleslaw. Serve with gravy, corn on the cob, roasted vegetables, and a selection of breads or rolls to make the perfect abundant meal. With hog roast catering there is truly something for everyone! 

  1. Bangers and Mash

An immensely popular dish of sausages and mashed potatoes, this crowd favorite can be served with fried onions and onion gravy. Add peas or bakes beans for a heartier meal, and serve it all buffet-style for an informal yet utterly satisfying lunch or dinner. 

  1. Pie and Mash

The finest aged steak cuts, organic mushrooms, ale…turn a traditional fast food dish into a charming and rustic posh dish sure to be popular with your guests. Great food is also a great ice-breaker–serve a chicken option as well for variety, or a cheese and potato for vegetarians. Buttery garlic potatoes and the perfect mushy peas accompany this familiar and beloved classic. 

  1. Roasted Meats With Vegetables

A traditional sit-down meal may be the perfect way to go for a large, formal dinner. Herb-roasted turkey, goose, or chicken can be served with traditional vegetables such as roasted potatoes, brussel sprouts, or roasted parsnips and carrots. Bread sauce or cranberry jelly may be served with the meat. Pigs in a blanket and Yorkshire pudding make delicious and traditional side dishes sure to take the event to the next level. Add a delightful plum pudding for dessert for the perfect meal!
