Mesa Catering is a Bristol based event catering service. From a simple street-food style event to a four-course banquet, Mesa can bring as much, or as little, of the catering as you wish. Mesa Catering was created by Katie in 2020, she had been working as Head of Events at Pieminister for 7 years and was now ready to set up her own catering business. For 7 years Katie and her team executed pie-fect weddings and events across the UK, creating a successful and rewarding business model.
Katie, Faye and Naomi aim to offer a bespoke service using years of experience and an open and friendly approach. Our aim is to keep the process as stress free as possible for all of our clients and we understand that every event and wedding is unique.
Not only are we the chosen catering partner of Bristol’s award-winning pie brand, Pieminister, we have also partnered with another successful Bristol-born restaurant, Thali Cafe. Two very different and unique offerings to deliver to weddings and events across the UK.
Our Pieminister x Mesa menu offers a choice of mouth-watering pies served with creamy mash, minted mushy peas and gravy. The Thali Cafe x Mesa menu offers an array of Southern Indian inspired curries and sides. Our in-house chefs at Mesa have created other courses such as canapes, starters, puddings and evening buffets inspired by our partners and locally-sourced produce. We aim to keep our products ethical and free range.
We also have a plant-based menu for both our Pieminister and Thali offering as well as being able to cater for gluten free guests and many other dietary needs.

Incredible Food and Service
Thank you so much for being so kind and helpful. We honestly could eat your pies every night of the week!
Top class wedding catering
Many thanks, Steve & Alice
Outstanding service and delicious pies
Amy and Chris, August 2019
We had always dreamt of a festival wedding where Pies were certainly top of the list as our menu to accompany our relaxed day. There was no question too big or too small for the team to answer and they accommodated all of our guests needs perfectly. On the day the service was smooth and enjoyable, the team were helpful, friendly and went above and beyond. The team provided us with canapes, a 2-course dinner and service of our reception and table drinks.
We had so many positive comments from our friends and family on the pies, we were so pleased they were enjoyed by all!
We would not hesitate in recommending Pieminister to any friends or family who are looking for a 5star service for their wedding.

We cannot thank Pieminister enough as all our guests had fabulous food. We had a selection of gorgeous canapés when our guests arrived from the church to the reception, these were perfect nibbles whilst the photos were being taken. We chose three pies for the main; Chicken of Aragon Pie, Matador Pie and Wild Mushroom and Asparagus Pie, and all specialist dietary requirements were catered for, and we had quite a few. The pies looked so inviting and delicious, and of course, tasted incredible. The best thing about having pie and mash at a wedding is that it really fills you up, and our guests agreed. The dessert was also gorgeous, lots of yummy offerings. Pieminister organised a magnificent wedding cheese cake for us, and it perfectly complemented the evening buffet.
The food really speaks for itself, but we also want to say how impressed we were with the overall organisation and support that we had.
Katie led the Pieminister Team for our wedding and she was amazing; she couldn’t do enough for us leading up to the wedding day and on the day itself.
Do not hesitate to book Pieminister for your nuptials with Pieminister, we've had nothing but rave reviews from our guests! Thank you, thank you, thank you! x

All the guests commented on how good the food and the service was. We were also so grateful to you for sorting out the food service area so well- putting up sheets etc. It worked really well.
You have been flexible and so easy to work with right from the start which is such a weight off our minds with everything else we had to sort. We're only sorry that we didn't get to speak to you very much! If we're in Bristol soon, we'll pop in for sure.
Please let us know if there are any review/recommendation sites that you would like us to give you a glowing reference on and we'll be happy to do so.
Thanks so much again,
Andy and Rachel, 2015
A MASSIVE thank you to you and your whole team for the mammoth amounts of work you did, and for making our special day the best day ever!
Lisa and Stephen, August 2016
This was the starting point of our wedding planning! The next was to find a venue that allowed us to use our own choice of caterer and hence we discovered the beautiful but rather remote and inaccessible (in more ways than one) Polhawn Fort in Cornwall.
The Pieminister team were incredibly professional, efficient and friendly from day one. From Faye, who helped with the booking process, to Katie who thought of everything in the (at times difficult) planning process and to Ian and the Pieminister team who worked incredibly hard to ensure that our wedding day went smoothly and was everything that we dreamed of, even though the weather tried to scupper us with gale force winds in the middle of August! The team thought of everything during the planning process and worked tirelessly behind the scenes on the day even adding in a couple of surprises for us, which we had not expected. We could not fault them and both our guests and
Stephen and I loved the Pieminister experience.
We would highly recommend Pieminister to anyone and everyone as we can guarantee you will not regret it!
Maylin and Oliver, September 2016
We always have loved your pies, and now every time we eat one there will be an extra reason to smile.
Thank you again from both of us, and all of our happy, well-fed guests.
Lucy and Dan, July 2016
As usual, the pies were simply delicious and there were lots of lovely compliments from ours guests about the lemon meringue ice cream pie dessert.
Pieminister were so friendly and professional and went above and beyond the duties of catering manager (my Mum even caught the Katie helping to keep the toilets clean & tidy!)
Thank you so much for all your help on the day – it really meant a lot to both of us. We are and will remain dedicated Pieminister addicts for life!

We cannot thank you enough Pieminister!

On the day itself, Tiegan and her team were on site nice and early to get set up and run through the day. We had a few queries on logistics and Tiegan put us at ease straight away, offering to take care of everything. The staff were superb, from setting up the tables, delivering drinks and canapes after the ceremony, serving the wedding breakfast and clearing up afterwards. And the pies (not to forget the mash, mushy peas and gravy) To die for!! Things really couldn’t have gone any better and with them managing things so well, we were able to relax and enjoy the afternoon.
We opted for the cheese wedding cake from Pie Minister and I’m delighted we did. From the feedback we got from guests, that went down rather well too!
We can’t thank you guys enough for making sure everything ran so smoothly on the day and the guests thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the service.
Thanks Pie Minister, you were the BEST!!
Did the reviews win you over?
