I booked RoastEvent for my daughter’s christening & couldn’t have been happier that I did. William always responded very quickly whenever I contacted him to ask questions or increase the number of guests etc. They were able to accommodate my guests with gluten free, vegetarian & vegan requirements. We chose to have a BBQ with a fantastic range of meats & side dishes plus couscous filled roast peppers. Pricing was very reasona…

We had a great time during our baby shower and everybody agreed that the food was amazing. It was really great to have Mariola from Black Truffle helping us throughout the process. She catered to our needs, gave us really interesting food options and on the day she excelled with flavour. I really recommend Black Truffle because they have tons of options and Mariola is very good at answering emails and responding to queries.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does buffet catering cost in the UK?

To hire a buffet caterer in the UK costs between £7 and £200 per person. The average cost is around £65. This cost is determined by the caterer (caterer’s reputation) you decide to work with because different caterers have their rates. Other factors affecting the cost of booking a buffet catering in the UK include the event location and the type and number of meals required at the party. You can hire a buffet caterer on the Poptop website in a few simple steps: enter your party details and view live prices and caterers’ availability; submit a booking request, ensure to pay a deposit to secure a date, the reservation is then confirmed.

What cuisines do buffet caterers offer?

The main course, sides, salads, and desserts are all included in the base price. Our buffet caterers for hire provide the following dishes: naverine of lamb chicken with button mushrooms and white wine sauce, slowly braised beef, shallot, ale casserole, curried lamb with tomato and mango, and Thai lemon chicken and coconut sauce. The cuisines can also be tailored to your preferences. All you have to do is to discuss this with your preferred supplier prior to the event.

Who will set up a buffet catering area?

Definitely not you, the buffet caterers will do that. They will set up the buffet catering area by themselves. To do this effectively, our caterers will arrive at your event about 2 hours before the program begins. They will provide all the necessary equipment, cutlery, and crockery. They will set up and arrange everything. When you are ready, their staff will serve you and your guests. Afterward, when the event is over, your premises will be left clean and tidy.

Do buffet caterers clean up after themselves?

Yes, the buffet caterers clean up after themselves. You won’t be the one arranging for who to clean up after your event. Before leaving your event center, the buffet caterers for hire will clean the area and ensure they leave it just the way they met it. You do not need to worry about having a dirty space after your event. They will also make sure there's no damage. The caterers will also be the ones to set up and serve you and your guests. All you have to do is sit back, and enjoy your party.
