Our Food – Your Way
Our aim is to give you a great choice of options for your event. Most customers choose to have either our cold buffet, hot buffet or Barbecue option but the choice is yours. You can even have a mixture of each of them if that’s what you’d like to offer your guests OR you can ask for something completely bespoke to you.
We’ve designed our pricing to allow you to select the food combinations that work for you.
The great news is that whether you choose the cold buffet, the hot buffet or our barbecue, all our buffet pricing includes;
Your choice of 2 salads from our accompaniments menu
and biodegradable disposable:
Tablecloths available on request
Again, if you’d prefer alternative cutlery, crockery and table decoration then just give us a call.
At Willetts you’ll be supplied quality food from reputable suppliers, we prepare our food in our five-star hygiene rated kitchens in Harlow. We’re happy to supply you references OR just take a look on Google, our website or Instagram page. We’re confident in our service and invite you to have a look at through our pricing and give us a call with any questions.
