the main event (norfolk) ltd.co.uk - Bespoke, stylish catering for every occasion



Whilst the majority of functions we cater are in celebration of joyous events, we are acutely aware that not all
 Family Occasions are happy ones.  

We provide a selection of buffet menus, ranging in price from £7.95 per person for finger food to a more substantial content, sufficient to offer hospitality to those guests and family members who may have travelled a considerable distance in order to attend the Funeral of a loved one. We will visit you in your home to determine the approximate number of guests you might expect to attend, the type of food you want and the time you want us to arrive. We will happily cater in your home or any venue you choose.

Even in Norfolk, time and tide wait for no man...

All of our food is home-cooked: pies, quiches, tarts, cakes, pastries, meats, soups and desserts are made freshly by us for each occasion. Should any of your family members or guests have special dietary requirements (e.g. gluten or lactose intolerance, nut allergies) we will happily adapt ingredients accordingly.

Most of our staff have worked alongside us for a number of years and you can count on them to be friendly and efficient whilst also being aware of the necessity for sensitivity and compassion. They will make the tea, take care of your guests, clear everything away and do the washing up. 

At a time when mundane, everyday planning is too much to think about, we'll do our best to take care of that worry.
