The Catering Dept believes bringing in the caterers shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. But a better price shouldn't mean a compromise on quality or edge. We're about the familiar, ridiculously delicious food, some old favourites (cheese rolls!), some new concepts (fancy cheese rolls!) and the very best of that famous Kiwi hospitality.

We make it easy and affordable to look after your friends, colleagues, staff and clients with innovative takes on traditional catering. It's all about something delicious and familiar, say…a bacon buttie….made with homemade bread and award-winning Peter Timbs bacon, so basically, bacon buttie of heaven. Or a yummy lamb chop. But what about the best of Canterbury lamb cutlet with a bread and parmesan crumb…handfuls of them so it's like your very own lamb cutlet bouquet and nibble away on lamb of outrageous deliciousness. Do you remember chocolate eclairs old school styles? Then you should try our dark chocolate glazed eclairs with chocolate pastry cream…steal a platter and find a corner because you won't want to share. Same goes for our venison burgers and our steak and dark ale pies, or our little boxes of shrimp popcorn.

Friendly, accessible, delicious and relaxed. The Catering Dept.
