Enjoy the magic of getting together to share a meal

Dinner party catering

Perfect for a special occasion. Or, ideal if you need total flexibility and ease for your whole family, while on holiday in Suffolk.

Put the kids to bed, or finish getting ready, as we light candles and prepare a simple, delicious meal for you to gather around and enjoy, in the comfort of your home or holiday cottage.

To help you create a warm and relaxed atmosphere, we make dishes that are tempting and hearty, rather than fine and fussy. Mains are accompanied by side dishes of beautifully dressed seasonal vegetables and salads for everyone to dive into.

We don’t set out to recreate a fine-dining restaurant experience. Instead, our mission is to help you and your guests let your hair down and have a brilliant time. Stick the music on and dance around the living room, if you fancy.

If you want to make a real impact and transform your dining space, let us set and dress the table with everything from stunning linens and fresh flowers, to beautiful crockery and glassware.

A private three-course dinner party for six adults, all eating the same three dishes, costs roughly around £500. The final price depends on your choice of ingredients, as some are less expensive than others. The price per head comes down the more people you have around the table. You can expect to pay a bit more where you need to adapt the menu to accommodate dietary requirements. We also offer sorbet courses, local cheese platters and a table/room dressing service.

 As with any dinner party you’d host at home, everyone around the table eats the same thing (unless there are dietary restrictions, of course). We serve up at your chosen time and can go at your preferred pace. For groups of six or more, we’ll bring one of our warm and friendly waiters so you don’t have to lift a finger. We’ll leave everything tidy and load the dishwasher before we leave!

If you like the look of our menus and have a date in mind, give us a call to check that it’s available. When you call it’s a good idea to have to hand as much information as possible about the dietary requirements and restrictions of your group, as this will help us provide an accurate price for your meal.

Party food

You can’t beat the excitement of throwing a party and waiting for your guests to arrive. It can be hard work getting everything ready on time though. Home cooking for a crowd takes time and energy.

Flock party food is the delicious and satisfying home-cooked buffet food you know your guests will most enjoy. Flock serves beautiful homemade sausage rolls, whips and dips, tarts, fresh statement salads and boards laden with Suffolk cheeses and charcuterie. Round everything off with something sweet and irresistible, or get stuck into one of our sumptuous and indulgent party cakes, made fresh to order.

Flock party food is ideal for daytime events too, such as large picnics and garden parties. We also offer individual savoury and sweet canapés for drinks parties and receptions; ideal if you’re feeding a lot of people.

So, give us a call, take a load off and free yourself to enjoy the build-up to your gathering.

Business Lunches

Make an impression and set right tone for your business meeting with a Flock breakfast or lunch. Tuck into a delivery of well-balanced and nutritious food that will power you all to success! Ditch the stale supermarket croissants and soggy sandwiches in favour of beautifully presented and freshly prepared breakfast and lunchtime favourites.

For breakfast, enjoy a selection of fresh pastries, local meats and cheese, Flock homemade granola, yoghurt, seasonal fruit and hand pressed juice.

At lunchtime, there are rolls and sandwiches filled with Suffolk ham and mustard, local organic mayo or Sutton Hoo chicken, avocado and bacon, alongside savoury muffins, roast seasonal vegetable quiches and lightly dressed salads. Let us provide cut fruit salads and something sweet for an extra energy boost, all washed down with flasks of homemade herb infused water or zesty lemonades.

Afternoon teas

Flock afternoon teas feature a delightful array of delicately prepared family favourites, such as finger sandwiches, filled rolls, fluffy scones, teacakes and buns, biscuits and cakes.

Whether it’s an office lunch or picnic, a party in a house or a hall, a christening or a wake, your guests will feel welcome and cared for.

Tell us what you have in mind and we’ll take it from there. We can either leave tea with you, for you to serve, or remain on hand to help you look after your guests.

Kids’ party food

If you’re looking for a fun alternative to the usual line-up of kids’ party snacks then consider a Flock children’s party spread. They contain a variety of tasty and nutritious foods your young guests will devour and, presented beautifully, they will be the eye-catching centrepiece of your party.

Flock kids’ party food can be served individually portioned in cute recyclable boxes. Or, in sharing bags, with little wooden serving spoons, so your rabble can help themselves, Spreads can include finger sandwiches, cheese straws, veg sticks and dips, home popped corn, berries, and mini brownies or cookies.

All Flock food is made fresh to order and delivered to your venue. We can also remain on hand to dish up free-range Blythburgh bacon sandwiches and homemade sausage rolls for the older kids and grown-ups.

At the end of your party, why not send everyone home with an individually wrapped piece of one of our delicious and impressive party cakes.
