Hosting a dinner party for friends and family can make for a memorable and entertaining evening – after all, it’s great to get together with your loved ones.  While you may be keen to take the reins of the event, to prepare and deliver food to your guests, why not consider offering them a real twist to the traditional dinner party – by hiring one of our professional chefs to cater for your private event?

For a minimum of ten guests, Lyme Bay can provide staff, know-how and menus for no matter who or why you are hosting – we pride ourselves on a real personal touch to our dinner parties and our chefs are experts in catering to a wide range of different needs and events.

Adding a touch of class!

 If you’re new to hosting for dinner, our party meal service is guaranteed to leave a memorable first impression on your guests!  Imagine hosting a sumptuous and sophisticated five-course meal in your own home – without having to lift a finger!  If you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply looking to get the family together, Lyme Bay can help create a real evening to remember.

Where do I start?

 Hiring Lyme Bay for your dinner party is simple – we’ll simply ask you a few questions at the start of the process and ensure that we have everything to your liking before we get started.  Once you’ve completed our short questionnaire, we’ll offer you a number of our available packages and menus for you to choose from, along with our pricing.

Who do you cater for?

 Anybody and everybody!  Providing that you are looking to host within the South West, let us know the date and the location and we’ll be there.  Why not host your party away from home – at a cottage retreat or holiday home?  Alternatively, if you’re eager to welcome guests to a five-star dining experience in your very own home, we’ll provide the food and the service via your own cutlery and dinnerware.  We will also cater for all dietary requirements – just let us know during the ordering process and we’ll make sure that everybody at the table has a delicious evening in!

We’re flexible!

 While we pride ourselves on our personal touch to any dinner party and aim to ensure all your guests are happy and well-fed, there really is no stipulation on the number of people you’d like for us to cook for.  We do stipulate that we normally start our rates for parties of at least ten or more people, however, we will be more than happy to discuss your needs and requirements should your party not fall within this range – rest assured we will not turn you away without discussing your dream party and what we can do for you and your guests.

What menus are available?

 Dinner parties are as popular as ever and, as they’re seen as something rather special, we aim to offer a truly spectacular selection of food for you and your guests.  We’ve included some example menus on this page for you to see the range of cuisines we can create and cook – we love locally-sourced food, meaning that whatever you’d like for us to cook up for you, you have our guarantee that it will be fresh and authentic!  As we cater to any dietary need, we’ll be happy to offer flexibility and variety to these example menus and will discuss options available to you during the ordering process.

For a classy, relaxed and overall extremely tasty evening in, why not go all out and make it that little bit more special?  Contact Lyme Bay today and we’ll discuss your perfect dinner party with you at your convenience.
