Services From Crocus Paella
The Spanish Fiesta Menu
The Ultimate Spanish Experience
WHY CHOOSE US:
⧫ To start with our name "Crocus Sativus", commonly known as saffron is one of the finest spices available, and that represents the high quality of our standards. Our recipes originate from Spain from old family cooking traditions, passed down through generations. Perhaps the best reason to choose us is that our customers have all rated us 5 stars and said that they and their guests loved the food and perhaps more importantly - the service from booking to serving. Check them out on google and our website. We are a small family run business who put personalised care into every event we do and would be happy to give you the same high quality and individualised service.
⧫ We cook everything from scratch and we are very selective with the ingredients that we use in our paellas because we want to be able to offer the best quality & taste. So apart from the local produce that we use wherever possible, most of our ingredients are from Iberica Spanish Food, an award-winning importer of authentic and traditional Spanish products.
⧫ We have been awarded with the Healthy Choice Award, by Brighton & Hove City Council, which certifies that our business supports its customers by offering healthy food choices, based on healthy cooking methods and ingredients.
⧫ All our paellas are gluten & nut free. If you or any of your guests have any particular allergies or special dietary requirements, we will do our best to cater for them individually, so please do let us know.
⧫ We serve our food in natural, high-quality biodegradable and compostable plates and we provide wooden forks instead of plastic, as well as quality napkins - all included in the price. If you require alternative crockery options, we can suggest a catering equipment hire company and we’ll be happy to serve in your selected plates or even your own plates.
⧫ We take customer service very seriously. Our staff are trained in Food Hygiene and always serve with a big smile!

What an amazing experience we had with Yana, Jose, Ellie & Ellie from Crocus Paella who catered our postponed wedding reception this weekend! We couldn’t have asked for a better service, or a better team to cater our reception. They were so friendly and made the most excellent food which was so tasty, traditional, filling and the Paella is also naturally gluten free, nut free and dairy free. Everyone really enjoyed it all! There was plenty left over for people to come and get second helpings. The tapas choices were also absolutely excellent, beautiful meats and cheese selections and fabulous croquettes, all clearly labelled with dietary information where needed. I couldn’t think of a better option for catering which suited absolutely everyone’s preferences and needs than the amazing paella from Crocus Paella, all for an extremely reasonable price. The team set everything up with minimal fuss and a huge amount of enthusiasm. We’ll be recommending them to anyone and everyone, don’t hesitate to book them for your event immediately! We would post some pictures but the food was so excellent it was gobbled before we managed to get some snaps!! We will be looking out for their stands around Brighton, wonderful food from wonderful people. Thank you all so much for such a smashing meal!

When you have 120 guests all saying you had the best-catered wedding they've ever been to *how* can you not give 5 stars 🤷🏼♂️ With HUGE delicious portions that left no one disappointed, I was beyond impressed beyond all expectation. The staff, oh my gosh - from Jenny who helped us through the seamless booking process to the team of Paella master chefs on the day who greeted each and every person with a big smile and an even bigger plate of paella 😍 10/10 will book again whenever & where ever I am able. I can't thank you all enough for being apart of the perfect day x

"Delicious food, lovely staff, would definitely have again!
We had vegan and chicken paella at our event and everyone was saying how delicious, filling and tasty it was. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The leftover paella was portioned up into containers for us and tasted fabulous reheated as well.
In the words of my 13 year old, “it was really good”."

I booked Crocus for my daughter’s 21st birthday party and they were totally brilliant from start to finish and would recommend them highly. Communication during the planning period was clear and helpful and they went to a lot of trouble to ensure that we had sufficient space and facilities for tent (just power and water). On the night itself they were prompt, extremely friendly and efficient, set up a beautifully festooned tent with a happy birthday light box and most importantly produced the most delicious paella. The guests loved it and best of all they boxed up the leftovers which were devoured at 2am and then enjoyed post clear up - would definitely use them again next time I have the energy to host a party!
