Private Events

We take on responsibility for catering private events

Organising a private party or a private celebration can be both highly stressful and very time consuming. Let St Andrews Event Catering take that responsibility and work with and for you, to your specification and within your time scales and budgets. Site visits will be arranged in advance, at a time convenient for you when we can discuss all the details about your party and what facilities there are. We are also proud to be one of the few outside caterers in Scotland, and so can work wherever you require.

“Thank you again for catering two meals for our stay in St Andrews during the Open Championship. All the food was delicious. it was all delivered on time and with great instructions for warming, presentation and serving. It was great to have the serving pieces as it is presented the food so nicely. Our group of 10 included ages from 11-58 and everyone enjoyed the food. Thank you for helping make our stay in St Andrews so enjoyable. We will definitely look you up next time we come to St Andrews.” – Karen McAdams

Discreet, appropriately dressed catering staff will arrive at your venue with all the glassware, crockery and service items needed to ensure your event is seamless. They will serve your drinks, cook and serve your foods and clear away at the end; leaving your house or venue as clean as they found it.

“Well, that was perfection Diane! Thank you SO much for a Thanksgiving dinner beyond expectations. Everything was perfect – the food was outstanding, delicious and hot! And the pies!! Omg the pies!! So good. We don’t know how the 3 of you pulled it off so well-it was amazing!
Having a random wish for a piper come true was beyond incredible, thank you for making that happen. Carter was so thrilled with the evening and it’s one for the memory books for his friends too. It’s always such a pleasure working with you-you take such great care of everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Can’t wait for the next one with you!”

“Thank you and St Andrews Event Catering for creating wonderful memories for my friends and myself at Hawkswood House during our visit in May.

All of us (8) enjoyed our dinner catered by you and your assistants not once but twice during our week stay.

Both dinners were delicious from appetizers to desserts. Haggis and Drambuie spirals & sticky toffee pudding with sticky sauce and St Andrews Ice cream were two group favourites!! Not to mention the steaks, salmon and lamb main courses!

Again, thank you for an outstanding experience – all around!

Hoping to see and dine with you again!”
