Dinner Party Catering


We can help

Organising a dinner party for a group of friends, family or colleagues can be great fun, but tough to do successfully. More often than not the host finds themselves confined to the kitchen for the best part of the evening, struggling to tackle gourmet catering whilst still maintaining an outward smile for the guests. Next time you’re planning a dinner party, why not leave it to the professionals?

Our dinner party menus can be arranged around your needs, and because we are a small company, we are able to offer that personal service you desire.

Whether you want a three course meal with canapés or something more informal we can create a menu to suit your occasion perfectly.


Our dinner party service is ideally suited to large families or groups of friends who want to enjoy a special meal together but don’t want the stress that goes with it.
From initial menu planning to taking care of the washing up, we do everything for you, leaving you free to sit down and relax.

We have a minimum number of 10 guests for our dinner party service.

This service is becoming increasingly popular with guests renting out large self catering properties and booking us to tie in with a birthday or other family celebration. Please see our Venue and Friends page for properties we currently work with.

A Bit Of Inspiration

Dinner party ideas

If you have a big family or business celebration coming up, a professionally catered dinner party can be a great option to consider rather than going out for a meal. Here are some ideas for how you can make use of a private chef from Exeter to Dorchester for your next big event:

Rent a self catering property: Around the Westcountry there are many beautiful self catering properties, able to accommodate large family groups with ease. From cliff top cottages on the north Devon coast to rural farmhouse retreats in Somerset catering a dinner party in one of these locations is an absolute pleasure.

Stay at home: Of course you don’t have to go out to enjoy your own dinner party. If you have enough space at home to seat all your guests, why not stay in for an intimate evening of exquisite dining with our professional services. We can provide five star caterers to Dorset, Somerset, and Cornwall, and everywhere in between.

Next time you’ve got a meal to cook, take some time for yourself and try our professional catering services instead. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy the company of your guests when you book caterers in Dorset, Devon and beyond with Lyme Bay Field Kitchen.
