We are a small family run business based just a few miles from Belvoir Castle at the junction of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire and in the summer of 2016 completed a professional conversion of our vintage 'small but perfectly formed' British horse trailer into an outdoor event catering unit (Rice trailers were originally built in Leicestershire).
We specialise in attending outdoor events providing crowd pleasing traditional grilled cheese sourdough 'toasties' packed with local Blue Stilton, Lincolnshire Red, Lincolnshire Poacher and guest cheeses offering a refreshing alternative to the usual burger vans.
Our tea, filter coffee and hot chocolate are all fair trade.
We are a small unit and all of our food is prepared and cooked freshly to order with no hot holding. This means that to keep our customers happy we work hard and fast with a focus on quality rather than quantity. We serve around 40 covers per hour.
The trailer is fully insured and staff trained compliant with all hygiene regulations (5 star food hygiene rating and a member of the Nationwide Caterers Association).
The unit is just a little over 4m wide and 2m deep including the tow bar although a slightly larger foot print of 5m x 3m allows safe access with all of the hatches open. The trailer is approx. 1,500 kilos with the weight distributed over 4 wheels on a double axle plus a jockey wheel. Our 4x4 tow vehicle can be parked off site once we are set up.
Our speciality is grilled cheese sandwiches. Our sourdough bread is baked by John who lives just a few streets away in our village and we collect our cheeses direct from the local dairies.
Everything is cooked fresh and to order (there is no way to pre cook a toastie and if there was we are sure you wouldn't like it) and each one takes a few minutes to prepare and grill, so the numbers we cater for tend to be up to around 100.
We would love to be part of you celebration - carnivals, fetes and fairs, corporate events, weddings and parties.
