Garden Party Catering

Party food for summertime events


Private catering for outdoor parties

When the sun comes out and the weather gets warmer, thoughts turn to summertime events in the open air. If you are planning an outdoor event or garden party, then we can provide the food to complement the location and theme of the party. Popular choices are festive Spanish paella and tapas garden parties, barbecue garden parties, picnics or afternoon tea parties en plein air.

Whether you are looking for informal sharing platters, buffets or some light bites to accompany a summertime drinks party in the garden, our team of expert chefs can work with you to design the perfect menu to wow your guests.

Free-range meat, sustainable fish and seasonal ingredients for the freshest taste

As with all our food, wherever possible we use seasonal ingredients for our Christmas party menus. All our meat is free range and we use sustainable fish, which we source directly from Billingsgate market (where we have our kitchen) so it is as fresh as possible.

Highly trained chefs

Our head chef Deanna Smith works with a team of expert chefs who have worked at some top restaurants including River Café and Le Manoir aux Quatre Saisons, so you can be assured that the cooking will be of the highest standard.


At Platter & Slate, we believe that food should be at the heart of a memorable event. Let us arrange the perfect garden party food to enable you to enjoy the balmy summer days with your guests, without worrying about the catering.
