At Dove Barn we do not have one 'in-house' caterer. We know how important making the right choice of caterer is for the success of your day and therefore we have selected a list of the best outside caterers in the region that offer excellent quality and service across a broad price range. We ask you to use one from our list and will happily advise you on which caterers may best suit your requirements.
All the caterers on our ‘recommended list’ are familiar with the venue and its kitchen. Most importantly, they have signed up to our 'minimum standards', which means we are confident they will deliver delicious food and excellent service and a competitive price. Please click through to their websites below for sample menus and inspiration and contact them directly to discuss your requirements.
