Catering Services for Tatham House-Somerset


It’s up to you…

Just choose from our list of talented local chefs and liaise directly with them and they will take care of everything.

They will offer you a variety of menus for your big house party or corporate event from a simple, hearty, two course, self-service meal, to a more formal, fully served and cleared dinner. All are made from the best available local produce wherever possible.
