This week Plum Buffets provided wedding catering in Stratford, a beautifully picturesque town, home of the river Avon and the birthplace of perhaps the greatest literary mind of all time – William Shakespeare! Shakespeare was lucky to survive his formative years there, as within weeks of his birth in April 1564, the black plague had claimed nearly a third of the town’s population. Fortunately, we found Stratford to be plague free, and full of some of the friendliest people we’ve met on the road so far.
The reception took place in a magnificent local hall, and the newly-wed couple could not have looked happier. After the service, photos were taken on the grass with the river Avon in the background. As the families of the groom and bride posed together, children ran and played with each other. The weather was sunny for this time of year, and green could be seen all around. All in all, it was a beautiful day!
Our fine dining menu never fails to impress all who try it. It is composed of exquisite dishes that your guests will be sure to compliment. How about trying our pan seared duck breast in a port and orange jus? Or do you feel like tasting our perfectly griddled and honey glazed tuna steak, served with parsnip purée? What about poached salmon served with a white wine and cream sauce? Not only are our fine dining menus packed full with dishes such as these, the price also includes a variety of great services. Firstly, delivery is absolutely free of charge within London and midland regions. Secondly, included in the price comes your very own outfit of uniformed waiters and even a chef. All our staff are trained in health & safety and hygiene, and will always do all they can to help your event run as smoothly as possible. As if all this wasn’t enough, we even throw in crockery, linen and cutlery. You may ask, are we crazy for giving away these extra services without incurring additional charges? No, we just don’t believe in charging you over the odds for great wedding catering, in Stratford or otherwise!
Wherever possible, we use locally sourced and totally fresh produce in our menus. We believe that this contributes greatly to the terrific taste of our food. This isn’t just in our fine dining menus either, it’s across the Plum Buffets range. Whether it’s some chicken goujons from our buffet menu, or the simple spuds in our jacket potato offers, or even the home-made crisps that we serve. We are a family run company with family values, and we do everything we can to make sure that our menus are fair trade, whilst also helping or local businesses in our beloved home county of Warwickshire.
So, if you need wedding catering in Stratford, a buffet in Oxford, or even a corporate fine dining event in Kent, we have what you’re looking for! Feel free to peruse our website and use the ‘contact us’ page to send us any enquiries.

A birthday buffet in Kenilworth was the main event for Plum Buffets this week. Who doesn’t love to celebrate birthdays? Our client and their guests this week most certainly loved to! Everyone involved in the 30th birthday celebration enjoyed themselves immensely – laughing, dancing, eating and drinking.
We were particularly proud of the selection on offer this week, at the Kenilworth birthday buffet. Not only were there hand cooked crisps, crudité and dips, but also a selection of cakes and petits fours. That’s before even mentioning the main savoury items! A selection of three sandwiches, and an additional three party buffet foods: pork pies, pizza bites and chicken wings. We received compliments on the food all night, however it wasn’t too long before it was all demolished by hungry guests!
When our client contacted us about this contract, they were worried that we may not be able to provide the service they wanted due to the lack of kitchen facilities at the function room in which it was going to be held. We of course told them that their worries were unfounded! We have recently revamped our catering equipment hire service, and this means we can also bring equipment like bain mairies, serving stations, refrigerators and even gas cookers to venues lacking in kitchen facilities. If you need to hire out this equipment for an event of your own, then feel free to peruse the catering equipment hire part of our website, or contact us to find out how we can help your event go off without a hitch. We can also provide a vast array of furniture, crockery, disposable plates and cutlery.
A couple of guests at the buffet in Kenilworth were asking about how we source our food. We assured them that in our menus we use locally grown produce and free range meat, that is always top quality. This is how we make our food taste so delicious, with the right ingredients, and a wealth of culinary experience.
Don’t let your location put you off booking our services either… if you live in any midland or London region, you’re in luck! We offer free delivery on all large orders, and we always promise to be on time. Our staff, who are all trained in food hygiene and health & safety, will always be extremely approachable and happy to help. We are a family run business, with family attitudes. We don’t believe in charging you extra to make your event go off without a hitch. We will always try and include as many services as possible within the initial price, to eliminate the possibility of any nasty surprises. If you have an upcoming event that needs to be catered for, whether it’s an anniversary celebration, a birthday buffet, or a formal event, peruse our website to see if we offer what you need. Feel free to contact us via this website.
Here at Plum Buffets we’ve improved our catering equipment hire service. Now there’s even more quality equipment for you to hire out. No matter the type of event, the size of the guest list, location of the venue, we’re confident we’ve got what you need to make your event a success.
As some of you will already know, many of our menus come with a lot of services already included in the initial pricing. For example, when ordering our fine dining menus, we include the service of your very own uniformed staff – chef included – at no extra cost. All our staff are trained in health & safety and hygiene, and are unanimously approachable and friendly. They will do all in their power to help your event run smoothly. On other menus, such as our buffet menus, we include disposable cutlery, plates and napkins for your guests to use. No washing up required! In addition to this, all our menus are delivered across midlands and London regions absolutely free of charge.
As of now, our customers can choose from an even larger range of catering equipment to hire. Regardless of the event, we’re confident that we have what you need in stock. If you’re hosting a small get together in a local village hall, we can provide crockery and linen to put on those put-up tables. And if the venue doesn’t have such tables for use? We’ve got our own! We have round tables, square tables, chairs – all the furniture required to host a local event of any kind, all at affordable rates.
And it doesn’t stop there, we also have kitchen equipment for hire! If you need to store large amounts of food, we have professional grade refrigerators and storing holding cupboards. If you’ve drawn the short straw, and you are required to actually cook the food (we strongly recommend putting your feet up and leaving that to us!) then we have ovens with ring burners, hot and cold serving stations, bain mairies, and everything else needed to produce high quality food in large amounts.
As if this wasn’t enough, we can also, through contacts in the entertainment business, provide low cost high quality DJ’s and entertainers – should your event require that extra little something.
So, what are you waiting for? Take advantage of our new and improved catering equipment hire service. Whether you’re putting on an event yourself for family or friends, or you’re part of an independent catering company with a big event coming up, we have the equipment you need. Feel free to contact us via our website to enquire about how we can help you today.
