This week at Plum Buffets we’ve been extremely busy, providing buffet dining in Oxford and contract catering in Birmingham, with more events still to come. Recently, orders have been coming in left, right and centre – for all different types of events. As we are getting busier and busier. We advise all our customers to book well in advance to avoid disappointment!
Contract catering is something that has become increasingly popular with our customers. We offer our services to a wide variety of businesses and establishments, and they are beginning to realise the advantages of securing our services by entering into a contract with us. For example, we provide services for schools, also function venues such as village halls. Any reoccurring event is suited to contract catering – whether it occurs every week, every month, bi- or even tri-monthly. If you need great and reliable catering on a regular basis, then you need Plum Buffets!
One advantage of contract catering with Plum Buffets is reliability… if you have reoccurring events, then it can be a hassle organising caterers each and every time. With this option, you will never need to book again! We can put your dates in our calendar, and make sure we’re free for that day – you get special treatment, and we will always make sure your dates are reserved. As aforementioned, we are getting busier and busier and we can no longer guarantee our availability for bookings that are not made well in advance. Considering this, you, and your business, can really benefit from our contract catering programme if you need catering on a regular basis.
We don’t just provide our menus within our contract catering service, we can also provide staff, mobile deli units, and vending machines. The possibilities are endless! To give you an example, we often provide mobile deli units for builders as they work on-site. These units are a great way to provide our hot and tasty goods where it may be too difficult to cook them at the venue. They’re also great for large events such as school sports days or charity fundraisers. Our vending machines are top quality, and can be filled with snacks and treats chosen by you. We have a selection of healthy items, but can also provide those tasty treats which you or your employees may be pining for. Contact us to find out how we can help you today!
At Plum Buffets, we are a family run company with family values. We want to make sure all your events go off without a hitch, and if you enter into a contract with us then we are doubly committed to keeping you, and your employees or guests, happy. We use the freshest, locally sourced produce in our menus, as we want to both make our food taste great, and help the businesses around us prosper. If you have a business that could benefit from our contract catering services, in Birmingham or anywhere else in the midlands or around London, give us a call!
Did you know that Plum Buffets offers private dining, bringing the restaurant to you? Well, now you do! No longer must you toil over the stove preparing the feast for family occasions. No more must you set up the tables and chairs at the venue you’ve booked for your loved one’s birthday. And gone are the times when you must do the dreaded washing up.
Plum Buffets private dining service is suitable for a vast range of events. Whether you’re just planning a small get together with friends, or a humungous family occasion with all the bells and whistles… we have the experience, the staff, the equipment, and most importantly, the food, to make these occasions go off with a bang!
In all our menus, not just those available for private dining, we use fresh ingredients that are locally sourced. We believe that this helps to ensure that our meals stay delicious, whilst helping the smaller companies and businesses around our beloved home county of Warwickshire. When eating our food, you’ll notice the difference as the flavour bursts onto the tongue!
For all private dining, our staff are available for hire. If you’re ordering from our fine dining menu, then they come absolutely free of charge, for four hours! Not only are you getting a uniformed staff, including chef, you’re getting a group of people who are all trained to the highest standards in health & safety and hygiene. They will also do anything they can to make sure your event runs smoothly.
Want to put on a hog roast in Hastings? What about an anniversary in Abingdon? Or even a buffet in Bristol? Then never fear! Plum Buffets offers free delivery within our catchment area of all London and Midland regions. We love getting the opportunity to travel across the UK, meeting new people and letting them taste our great cuisine. So, don’t let your location stop you from ringing up and booking us today.
There’s no limit to the customizability that the private dining option gives you. No matter the size of the kitchen, the location of the venue or the amount of people on the guest list, we have what it takes to put on a great celebration. We even have our own catering equipment, should you want to party in a facility which doesn’t have a kitchen. Upon arrival, our staff will set everything up just as it needs to be, with time to spare before the first guests start to wander in. We really do make it as easy as possible for you! So what are you waiting for? If you’re in need of private dining, then contact us via the website, or by telephone or email. You won’t regret it!
Plum buffets have provided catering in Leamington Spa for years now. We are always happy to travel to the town – although it doesn’t take us very long at all from our beloved home of Coventry. Leamington Spa is a town that is full of history and picturesque scenes, from grassy parks to ornate buildings. It is said that the Spa’s water was great for making bread and preserving meat, causing it to receive fame in the eighteenth century, but it was also used in the olden days in attempts to cure rabies! The inventor of the jet engine, Frank Whittle, learnt his trade and formulated the idea in Leamington. It was also the home of the first lawn tennis club in England in 1872 at the Manor House Hotel, which still stands today! The more you know…
The event we were catering in Leamington this week was a corporate affair. A business we have often provided services for was celebrating its 20th year in business – and we couldn’t have been happier to oblige them when they asked us to provide a fine dining feast for the big day! When ordering from our fine dining menu, we provide our client with an assortment of menus, all filled with gloriously exquisite dishes designed not only to impress, but to be delicious as well! Once our client has chosen two dishes from each course for their guests to choose from, we take it from there. This week, for the main courses, the choices were either a grilled fillet steak served in a creamy Roquefort sauce with chunky chips, or smoked haddock on a potato cake served with wilted spinach. Both meals went down a treat with the guests!
If you are looking for event catering and are thinking of taking advantage of our fine dining menu, then you’re a shrewd customer! Included in the price of the meals for the party, we give you your very own staff for 4 hours just to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. All the staff are uniformed and trained in health & safety and hygiene. Delivery is also free of charge, within our catchment area of Midland and London regions.
Don’t miss out on our great buffet menus! We offer a range of buffet menus, as we know that every event is different: Hot fork buffets; cold fork buffets; party finger buffets; and jacket potato buffets! Each are tailored to give you the best bang for your buck. For example, we offer additional extras such as cheese boards, sushi platters and chocolate gateaux’s from as little as £1.50pp!
So, if you have an event that needs catering, you’ve found the right people. We are a family run company with family run values, and we want all your events to be the best they can be! Contact us here, or by telephone or email.
