At Green Fig Catering Company we specialize in off-site catering. Based just outside Eastbourne, we cover most of East Sussex (and parts of Kent such as Tunbridge Wells). We have a large commercial premises where food is prepped for your event, and it goes without saying that we hold the highest rating for food hygiene and good kitchen practice.
We are lucky enough to have established ourselves at many venues in and around East Sussex, and of course many of the larger events we take on are held in marquees on private land. Often a blank canvas is the best option, as we can hire in whatever equipment is needed to deliver your chosen menu.
With over ten year’s experience and a small, but highly qualified team, we can take on very large events. It’s all in the detail, and we’ll help guide you through what might be a daunting process, to ensure that the whole event runs smoothly from start to finish.
Many events, such as weddings, involve bringing together many elements, so we’ll build in a sensible timeline, and document everything on a personal Event Sheet, which is updated as necessary along the way.
From light finger or fork buffets to lavish four course meals, we have done it all! So whether it’s a local venue, the local village hall, or Grandad’s back garden the world is your oyster. We have experience of all types of events from forty to four hundred people.
And no need to worry about guests with dietaries. This is par for the course, and whatever the requirements, they will be adequately catered for.
During the week we are busy with corporate catering, most of which is on a delivery only basis. We service a daily contract, feeding a large workforce in a manufacturing company, and also cater for many local businesses for their meetings, training, client entertaining or just a staff treat. Other corporate events include canape receptions, product launches, staff parties and so on.
We also cater for funerals, wakes and memorials, that can be by delivery or with service. Our afternoon teas by delivery are a lovely treat for either for yourself, or to gift someone local, and you can order these online via the website. We also have some celebration menus you can order by delivery, namely our tapas delivery or our fine dining delivery menus.
Weddings and family celebrations are a huge part of what we do, with typically one each Saturday, but occasionally Fridays or week days. We like to set up the day before where possible, so we rarely take on two events on consecutive days, which means that we can devote our full attention to your booking. We’d prefer to say no to a booking rather than compromise the team or the quality of our service in any way.
By growing at a responsible rate over the years we’ve managed to retain all of our team, and build up a faultless reputation, which is echoed in the hundreds of testimonials as well as our (now over a hundred) five star Google reviews!
If you’re planning a large wedding or event in East Sussex, here’s why you should choose Green Fig!
With a huge selection of menus to choose from, you can customize your day as you wish. We offer two traditional three-course menus, our standard and our premium that are and perfect for weddings and celebrations. These days though, many are favoring a less formal style of eating, with food brought to tables for sharing. Be it a bbq menu, hot or cold fork food, tapas, picnic hampers, or an afternoon tea you can select the food that really suits your style.
Some people want an altogether more hands-on approach to their menu. Why not get the room talking by having slow-roast shoulders of lamb brought to the table, with all the trimmings? Listen to the roaring laughter as the designated carver dons his chef’s hat and apron and the wave of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as the meat falls away from the bone. Just make sure they share out the roasties equally!
Food is taking centre stage at weddings and events these days, and quite rightly so! We all remember fabulous food we’ve had, even if we can’t remember the event itself! Food can speak volumes, and what better than all of your guests getting to know each other through the food they are enjoying.
Another type of event we specialize in is private dining – top notch food for a special occasion either at home or in a fabulous rented holiday home. This is a great way to make the most of your location without having to go out, and not having to cook. Mostly for family celebrations but often for civilized hen or stag do’s, or corporate away days.
Whatever you’ve got planned, if you need catering look no further. As our tagline says – whatever the shindig, call Green Fig! We look forward to hearing from you, just click this link to get the ball rolling and get in touch!
