Queen & Whippet - Events catered beautifully in Bristol and beyond

Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you provide?

We can provide catering for weddings, corporate events, parties, private dining, retreats and crew catering. We also put on the occasional pop-up restaurant. We pride ourselves on being friendly and flexible so get in touch if you'd like an informal chat or a quote for your event.

How would you describe your catering style?

We create menus that are high-end and beautifully presented yet unfussy. Using the finest West Country produce we provide fine dining plated menus, buffets, barbecues, canap├ęs, sharing boards, street food or something tailored uniquely for your event. Our cuisine is modern British with influences from our travels.

Can you create a bespoke menu for my event?

Absolutely! Our menus can be just a starting point. We can adjust them to your taste, add in options to reflect your theme or food heritage or create something completely bespoke to your requirements. Our private dining menus change seasonally but we can put together a collection of dishes based on what you'd like to serve your guests.

Do you cater for dietary restrictions?

Our chefs are fully allergy-trained and we can also provide menus for special diets including (but not limited to) gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, paleo, low-carb, low-calorie, raw food or FODMAP. We're pretty passionate about taking an inclusive approach to dealing with dietary issues, you can read more about it here

What areas do you cover?

For weddings and major events we cover Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire and often Dorset, Devon, South Wales, Hampshire and Herefordshire. For private dining our chefs will usually travel within 25 miles of Bristol but sometimes more.

Do you provide a drinks service?

We can refer you to drinks suppliers, wine merchants and bar companies who we know and love. We never charge corkage. Our fantastic team of bar and waiting staff will serve your drinks and we can hire in glassware. We're always happy to advise on wine pairings and signature cocktails to complement the food. We can manage all this on your behalf under a temporary events notice if you'd prefer the convenience of us providing the drinks.

How can I try your food?

We can set up private or group tastings in our kitchens, your home or venue of choice. We also put on occasional supper clubs in Bristol and Bath - drop us a line if you'd like to be put on the mailing list for these.

Where do you cater?

At any venue that allows external caterers or any outside space where we can set up a field kitchen. We have worked with many fantastic venues in the region and can provide recommendations on request.
