We pride ourselves in offering delicious, quality, speciality burgers: wild boar, buffalo, venison with buffalo, lamb, and of course beef. These are made by a butcher in Dorset using meat sourced as locally as possible. We serve them in baps made by an artisan baker near Bruton with locally made chutneys and a Somerset cheese slice.
For weddings and parties, we are flexible in what we can offer, including vegetarian and gluten free. We can also travel to other parts of the country. Please discuss your requirements with us.

Great Tastes very happily took on the challenge of catering for my husband's 60th birthday party for 40 guests in a private wood. Tricky access, no running water, mud, likelihood of more rain - etc. To say they rose to the challenge was an understatement! They were calm, efficient and professional throughout all the logistical problems of transporting their equipment, setting up and packing up.. The food they produced was absolutely superb with ALL of our guests thoroughly enjoying everything on offer. Most of all, Zelda and Edward are such lovely people who were able to provide a truly professional service whilst appearing completely at home at the party like a couple of good friends. Thank you!

The communication was first rate. I looked at a variety of outside catering suppliers and wanted to be able to make an input into the menu. I was able to do this and also had confidence in the providence of the meat/poultry (nothing frozen) all from local butcher. I felt confident in the service because communication was so good. On the day, very friendly service and all our guests (65) commented on the excellence of the food. We provided our own salads and desserts so it was good to have this flexibility too. Cannot recommend too highly: ours was a private birthday party in our garden which isn't huge but could accommodate the catering gazebo and a small band and 65 guests all seated (if wished).

"29th October. Charity Event for Wessex Cancer
Great tastes were a perfect fit for our sponsored running event. All the participants made a point how much they liked the food and the prices were spot on. They provide a wide range of different meats which I think made them extra special. Zelda was very easy to work with and made my job as event Manger much easier on the day. Dawn at Wessex Cancer Trust."
