About Bristol Event Catering Co.

We are a Bristol-based event company. We carefully combine award-winning local producers, suppliers and event professionals, exclusively from within a 20-mile radius of our headquarters in the heart of Bristol to create extraordinary culinary experiences with minimal environmental impact. This "Farm to Table" trend offers a fresh and simple approach to creating long-lasting memories without leaving any lasting impact on the environment. Leaving your guests speechless with the quality of the food and drinks, which may have been sourced only miles away from where they live. (We cater for events of all sizes and all over the South-West of England).

Our friendly, relaxed approach and informal service style perfectly compliments our food and allows for a fun, laid-back atmosphere on your wedding or private event.

​We also know that planning your dream wedding is stressful enough, so we've designed our straightforward pricing structure to allow you to focus on other elements of your big day. We guarantee to deliver our fantastic food quality and friendly efficient service on time and budget.

​Check out our wedding menus on our website, each showcasing the finest and freshest local ingredients. We offer a variety of different options from sharing boards/dishes (our personal favourite) to British classics. We have also designed an extensive range of Canapès and Puddings. (Take a look at our photos). We offer the opportunity to design bespoke menus as well, we have a range of vegan and vegetarian dishes. See more of our dishes/events on our Instagram page.

Alongside the exceptional cuisine, our in-house culinary team is fully trained both as waiters and bar staff. We take great importance in meeting each couple and really understand the best way to make your day/weekend as memorable as possible. Bristol Event Catering Company also offers more than just the Wedding Breakfast, we can cater the night before and our special morning-after brunch is the perfect ending for all your guests.

    Good service but food failed to meet expectations

    Bristol Event Catering were one of the first suppliers we booked for our wedding, after they approached us with a great offer, even though the wedding was a few hours away from Bristol. They were incredibly accommodating, including travel costs, linens, cutlery, crockery and allowing us multiple menu tweaks as the day approached. When Covid restrictions finally allowed us to attend a tasting we were really impressed and looking forward to the food being a major highlight of our wedding day.

    Unfortunately, whether it was the size of the event or just an off day, the food on the day was the only disappointment of our wedding day. In quantity but particularly quality and presentation, it didn't live up to what we'd seen online or experienced in the tasting (see photos for comparison). Our guests were very polite on the day, but many have since candidly shared their honest opinion, which wasn't especially positive.

    In contrast we can't fault the front-of-house staff, who (admittedly after arriving nearly an hour late) did a wonderful job of setting up the tables and were friendly and engaging throughout service.

    If our wedding had been smaller and allowed more time for setup, Bristol Event Catering would probably have done a stunning job - we were under the impression that they may have bitten off more than they could chew.

    James and the team.

    Superb from beginning to end! The ease of communication at the beginning, the flexibility offered was endless and the end result was to die for food. Also the staff were beyond professional throughout the day.

    Exciting, modern catering company providing incredible food

    James and the rest of the Bristol Event Catering team could not have been more helpful in helping us plan our day.

    From the tasting session, the communication leading up to the day and the day itself, they went above and beyond to ensure everything went seamlessly. The food itself was delicious, with plenty of options for us to choose from and flexibility that enabled us to create a menu that really reflected us as a couple.

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bristol Event Catering Company to others and already know of guests from our wedding who have hired them for their event!
