While there may no parties happening right now, you’ve probably already got your mind on your first big event post-pandemic. Whether you’re looking ahead to an upcoming family occasion, have had to cancel a wedding or are the head of a company looking forward to getting their employees all together for the first time in months, you’ve surely got some planning in the pipeline for an exciting upcoming event.

With all the extra planning time, you’ll want to ensure that every element of your event is put together perfectly, with one of the most important elements of any such event being the food that the guests get to enjoy.

Here at Petrus Events, we offer a few different options for our event menus, with something bound to suit everyone. Here’s a summary of the delectable food we can offer you, as well as which events they suit the best.

Canapés

If you’re looking to offer your guests a bite to eat as soon as they arrive at your event, then you can’t go wrong with our beautiful selection of canapés.

Our canapés may be small, but they are absolutely full of flavour and are beautifully crafted. Delicious red pepper arancini, a smooth chicken liver parfait served with toasted brioche and our beautiful BBQ glazed belly pork are just a few of the lovingly put-together canapés on offer – and our full canapé menu is likely to show you that we have something to impress absolutely every one of your guests.

Canapés allow your guests to line their stomachs as they mingle with others at your event, making them ideal for the beginning of a corporate event or wedding reception, especially served with complimentary glasses of fizz for that extra taste of luxury. If you’re hosting an event attended mainly by adults, where there will be a period of waiting around before any plans for the evening begin, canapés are the perfect option.

Our Wedding Menu

If your wedding is set to feature a three-course sit-down meal with your guests, then our wedding menu is sure to have something for everyone, perfect for impressing the ones you love on your special day.

We offer eight different options for each course of your meal, which you can mix and match depending on what your guests will enjoy the most. Starters on offer include seasonal soups with artisan bread, shredded duck and pistachio terrine and parma ham and bocconcini salad, while main courses include wild mushroom risotto, salmon fillet with roasted new potatoes and braised belly pork with a delicious apple puree.

To finish off your meal, you have a choice of eight different desserts, including glazed chocolate tart with raspberry sorbet, sticky toffee pudding and even a cheese selection for the guests who prefer a savoury after-dinner offering.

Whatever the tastes of your guests, there’s sure to be something on our wedding menu to please everyone, so please feel free to get in touch to sample some of the offerings for yourself before deciding what to serve on your special day.

Barbecue

If you’re looking for something a little different, our barbecue service could be absolutely perfect for you.

We offer three different kinds of barbecue, starting with our standard evening BBQ menu. This menu includes all your classic BBQ staples and favourites, including beef burgers and marinated chicken skewers, as well as some exciting new tastes, such as Dr Pepper glazed pork ribs.

For an extra taste of summer, why not enquire about our Mediterranean grill? This menu features the BBQ classics with a Mediterranean twist, perfect for exciting your guests’ tastebuds and absolutely sure to impress.

If you’re truly looking for something a little different, our hog roast option is absolutely perfect. This impressive option is sure to get guests talking, with the meat served at our hog roast being as tender and moist as they come. We include condiments and coleslaw, too, so that every guest is able to finish their hog roast to their tastes.

Street Food & Bowl Food

Give your event a little international flavour with our vibrant street food menu. We offer a range of different street food dishes from around the world, so there is surely something to suit the tastes of each and every guest at your party.

Our offerings include Thai prawn curry, celeriac risotto and braised lamb tagine with Moroccan cous cous, just to name a few – if you’re looking to excite with some delicious new tastes, this is the perfect option for you.

Street food can bring a fun new twist to the tradition and formality of a wedding, whilst enjoying new tastes can be a great icebreaker for a corporate event. Our bowl food starts from £19.95 for three bowls, so why not take a look at the rest of our menu and see which three bowls will really impress your guests?

Finger Buffet

A buffet is, of course, the classic catering choice for parties of all kinds – and it’s popular because it’s universally loved.

Our finger buffet menu is the perfect luxury twist on the classic party buffet, featuring a range of sweet and savoury options, such as scones and fruit jams, pork pies, mini quiches and, of course, a selection of charming sandwich options.

Buffets are the perfect option for anyone who wants to get on with the celebrations and break from the traditional formality of sit-down meals. They also offer more choice and ensure that each and every guest gets to enjoy whatever they decide to eat, ideal for those whose guests will have different tastes or for events where there will be younger guests, too.

Whatever the event, if any of our menus have piqued your interest, please do feel free to get in touch and enquire about our services, as well as to see the full menus for each different kind of catering that we do.
