If you have a special occasion or event that needs catering, then we can help you out. We know it's a daunting thought to have to prepare food for a big party, so let us take that pressure off your shoulders.
Choose from our extensive selection of meals or let us know if there is a specific dish that you would like. We also provide buffet catering for lunches, meetings and other events. From a simple finger buffet to a full fork buffet, we can offer catering for any occasion.
Whatever your requirements are, we have a a menu to cater for most needs. Catering dishes and buffets can be delivered* or picked up from the Cool Gourmet either heated and ready to eat** or cold for you to reheat.
Please note, that the menus featured here are just a guide to give you an idea. All menus can be altered and we are happy to build a menu to your own specification and budget.
We try our best to cater for any dietary requirements that our customers may have. However, please inform us of any dietary or specific needs either when you order or up to one week before the delivery/collection date.
We can provide bespoke celebration cakes for every event. You tell us what you want and we'll make it for you. Just like our other bakes, our celebration cakes including any sugar crafts are made on the premises.
There are four main types of sponge that are used: fruit, madeira, carrot and chocolate. We also have two main types of icing: royal or buttercream. If you prefer something else, please let us know.
As for the design of your cake, that's up to you! If you like classic and simple, or weird and whacky, we'll do our best to bring your cake to life. We also cater for any dietary requirements, so if you need anything specific just ask.
We can also provide cakes or tray bakes to order for meetings, coffee mornings or other small events.
Prices vary depending on each order.
Please note that any orders must be placed at least one week in advance. We may be able to accept orders at short notice depending on how busy our schedule is, however there is no guarantee.
Throughout the year, we run a selection of themed buffet nights in the tearoom. Our nights cover a wide variety of themes: from different world cuisines e.g. Mediterranean and African, to more specific themes such as game and chocolate. Our most popular evening is the gin infused theme night! The owners like to flex their creative, culinary muscles for our theme nights and strive to produce interesting and unique menus. We like to give our customers the chance to try something new and different.
Each night consists of a three course, all you can eat, buffet meal, including tea and coffee. Prices will vary depending on the theme. The Cool Gourmet does not have a table license, therefore any customers must bring their own drinks if required. The nights sell out very quickly, so make you sure that you book your place early!
In addition to our theme nights, we also host private parties on the premises. The menu for a private function is up to you. Please note, that private parties must also bring any drinks if required.
We try our best to cater for any dietary requirements for both our theme nights and private parties. However, please inform us of any dietary or specific needs either when you book or up to one week before the function.
