The Tipsy Pigs is now a full-service catering agency, providing high quality culinary experiences from fine dining three course wedding breakfasts to street food, corporate functions and informal Hog roast garden parties.

They love using fresh ingredients and locally sourced produce to create food that people love to eat. Their food ethos is home-made, wholesome and tasty. They combine talented chef work with skilled but flexible event management ensuring a beautiful and flawless dining experience every time.

The Tipsy Pigs take immense pleasure in collaborating with you to craft personalised menus to suit all events and budgets with the ability to accommodate any dietary preferences. They understand the importance of your special occasion and are committed to making it a very memorable and stress-free event.

In addition to quality catering they provide a selection of bar services, ideal for kicking off any celebration. You can meet The Tipsy Pigs team at their venue, Seasons @ Guildford Cathedral, which is a café by day and event space by night.

Top quality food and service, would thoroughly recommend

On the leadup, we were both so happy with how Tipsy Pigs worked - they were so helpful and professional, and we knew our wedding would be in good hands.

Then, on the day itself, we thought they were amazing - we both loved how friendly, professional and clearly experienced every single member of the team was and lots of our guests commented on this and how quickly everything was changed and served too! We felt so happy with everything they did and they truly looked after us and our guests so that we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything went really smoothly on the day, and that's testament to their great planning and organisational skills.

We know it was a tricky venue in terms of kitchen space, so thank you so much again for dealing with the issues without hesitation and without worrying us!

Lastly, the food was absolutely delicious (but we had no doubts it would be!) and everyone told us how amazing the meal was - would thoroughly recommend Tipsy Pigs!

Absolutely brilliant!

Tipsy Pigs ran the catering for our recent wedding in Woking. It was in a Village Hall so we were a little in the dark about what it would all take to feed 100 people, but they immediately reassured us that it was all possible, what equipment we'd need and helped us anticipate various scenarios.

Once we'd selected our menu choices (canapés, three-course meal with three options for mains and evening pizza station), it was plain sailing and Carla and team turned up as planned, set up the room, worked perfectly to timings and our guests all said how much they loved the food. We've had lots of people say how lovely the waiters and waitresses were too. They also provided a cocktail bar for us in their vintage truck, and served drinks all night from a fully-stocked bar.

We felt they went over and beyond for us, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding caterer.

Flexible planning, great service, delicious food!

Tipsy Pigs were very flexible on the meal choice and allowed us to tailor a menu suited to us. They made delicious food, especially the meat! Their service was amazing and the bar staff were so helpful they even lit our lanterns for us. We would recommend them to anyone, they coped so well with the large venue we had and the fact we asked for drinks at different points and places in the day.

Best caterers ever - totally recommend

From the moment we met Carla and James to discuss our wedding plans, they listened to what our ideas were, gave us great options, and offered an impeccable service. We had a reception in a marquee, so they needed to bring everything with them, and they did - they didn't forget a thing! They visited the site several weeks before to familiarise themselves with where they would be working, and then Carla arrived on site the day before and set all the tables. On the day, the team arrived en-mass, setting up the hog roast and making sure it was cooked to perfection. The entire team were brilliant, every one of our guests said how lovely the caterers were, and nothing was too much trouble; one our our friends is also a celebrity chef and he was so impressed with the quality of the food served at the reception. Because we were having so much fun our timings went adrift, (our fault entirely!), we had a quick word with Carla and straight away she reacted, changed a few things, and we were able to regain that time and get us back on track. Carla worked with us with regard to other things we had booked from other suppliers (like Candy Floss), when these vendors arrived she showed them where they were to set up and looked after them to ensure we didn't have to worry about it. We can't recommend Carla, James and the team enough, and if we did it all over again we not change a thing that they did.

Could not recommend enough

We could not recommend The Tipsy Pigs and Seasons cafe enough. We were looking for somewhere that didn’t cost a crazy amount for our small and intimate wedding reception and it was absolutely perfect.

When we went to visit the venue, we spoke with one of the team at The Tipsy Pigs and were able to create our own custom menu for the day. Food was a huge consideration for us and we loved having this option and having something special just for us. In terms of price, as you are not paying a hugely overpriced venue fee like many venues, our price was extremely reasonable. The flexible space was also a consideration as we did not want our small number of guests to feel they were bouncing around in a huge venue. We were shown different options of how to make the space work for us which was great.

Leading up to the day the team at The Tipsy Pigs answered all of my questions and ensured I felt calm about the day. We didn’t have to confirm numbers until a week before which was really helpful as lots of things changed with covid. We delivered everything for decorating to the venue and it was all set up on the day for us which took at so much stress and allowed us to relax in the days leading up to the wedding.

On the day, the team at Seasons were fantastic; helpful, friendly and all around wonderful to have around us on the day. Nothing was too much of an ask and the day ran so smoothly. Our other vendors had no issues setting up on the day and everything worked really well within the venue. We opted to have a suspended balloon ceiling for an external supplier which really worked in the space and the DJ was able to set up on the stage. After the wedding, the team packed everything away for us ready to collect in the morning which was a huge help too.

As expected, the food was incredible. We wish we could have eaten more! All of our guests commented on how fantastic the food was on the day with many saying it was the best wedding food they have had!

Although we opted for an intimate wedding, the venue can hold many more and I think it was also work beautifully for a larger number of guests. We also had some of our wedding photos in front of the cathedral which was beautiful, especially for the group shot.

All in all, we cannot thank The Tipsy Pigs enough for helping our dream day become a reality and ensuring we had a day we will never forget.

Amazing food, staff and evening!

What a service! We have had a amazing experience all round from The Tipsy Pig! We hired them for our wedding and from start to finish the communication and service was fantastic! Nothing was a trouble and James and his team were always willing to help!

We had some tricky guests and James did all he could to accommodate them! The staff on the day went above and beyond! A professional service all round and helped make the day so magical and special!

All our guests commented at how fabulous the food was and said it was the best wedding food they had eaten!

I cannot recommend James and his team enough and will continue to shout their praises! Thank you so much The Tipsy Pig you really made our day/night!

Wonderful!!!

We could not have been happier with the service, the food, the bar, everything The Tipsy Pigs offered us was above and beyond what we expected. Would recommend them to anyone, you will not be disappointed!
The listened to everything we wanted, and no request was too much. Perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness all through planning and on the day.
We had to move our wedding due to Covid and again nothing was too much for them, made everything easy and not a problem in sight.
Everyone contacted me after the wedding to rave about the food and the service, and we could not have been happier. So thank you Tipsy Pigs!

Wonderful catering for our garden wedding

We hired The Tipsy Pigs for our wedding reception in the garden of a private home. Despite the odd circumstances, and the pandemic, the team went above and beyond to cater to our needs, and we had loads of positive feedback from our guests. We were thoroughly impressed and well fed. Thanks to the team - it added to such a lovely day! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to cater an event.

Great Service and Food

Tipsy Pig was a pleasure to work with. James was responsive and although a busy man always made time to answer our questions. Neil the chef was very accommodating with the dietary requirements of our guests. We arranged a food tasting and the food on the day of the wedding was exactly as we expected. Our guests loved the food. Carla was managing the service on the day and she was lovely and accommodating. We would highly recommend Tipsy Pig!

Tipsy Pigs, very brilliant

Tipsy Pigs, the perfect partner for our wedding. Tipsy Pigs created delicious food, but they're much more than great caterers - they helped make our party in a field happen, with the relaxed, happy atmosphere we really wanted. James and the team were friendly, helpful, easy to communicate with, and totally got the brief. We wanted a Swedish summer party in an English field with an Italian menu... not an easy brief but they understood the vision and helped make it happen. They designed a menu with exactly what we wanted, the food was brilliant. They also helped with sourcing tableware, sorting out the logistis for a remote field, running the bar, and dealing with a demanding organising committee... We highly recommend Tipsy Pigs and would hire them for future parties.
