Pink Food

Our in-house catering team have a wealth of experience in providing a delicious range of food and drink for many different types of function. Professional and friendly throughout, they will ensure that your function is fully catered for and your guest’s experience is second to none. Whether a fully seated three-course meal, more intimate dinner party or casual buffet-style dining choice, Pink Food will help shape a menu that is right for you.

Pink Food is the inspiration of Merrilees Parker and Bernadette Fitzpatrick, two passionate ‘foodies’ with many years experience under some of the finest chefs in the industry. They are supported by highly qualified and loyal staff. For Pink Food it is all about great ingredients, cooked simply, presented stunningly, and served in a friendly and efficient manner. This approach has brought Pink Food to the very top of the industry, with their reputation for quality at every level.

All their meat is from Pipers Farm www.pipersfarm.com whose philosophy is to grow healthy animals with a strong natural immunity. They grow contented animals slowly, in small groups, with minimum stress using medication when it is absolutely necessary.The end result is meat of the highest quality. All milk is Organic and all eggs are British free range. Bread comes in daily from The Bread Factory and “Yes Chef” supply fresh fruit and vegetables and they champion British produce where possible.

I wanted to say a huge thanks to all at Pink for making our afternoon so wonderful. The food was fab and Sue and her team were fantastic. Sue was so helpful and showed great initiative throughout. Please pass on my thanks to her and the others. Thanks also to Kay who helped me prepare for the event. It really couldn’t have gone any smoother.
