Lake District Catering

Catering in The Lake District, Cumbria

Good food. Good friends. Good times. 

To enhance your event at Graythwaite, we’re able to offer a range of lunch and dinner options for during your event or point you in the direction of some local caterers.  Please note, in all cases minimum numbers or a minimum spend applies – varies per supplier.

Ideal for larger family occasions, groups or corporate events, our offering varies from rustic to fine dining and everything in between.  For example;

Private dining- if you’re staying on the estate rather than going out for dinner, why not let Chef come to you.

Pizza van- it’s not ‘all about the base’, Dude smashes it on the toppings too! Created in the wood fired oven housed in a rustic French relic, the Citreon H van, you’ll be served an authentic Italian pizza that will give you and your guests a taste of the Mediterranean. 

Barbecue- a firm favourite, alfresco dining sizzling up a storm all year round.  Enjoy local produce; marinated local meat, the humble Cumberland sausage or delicately prepared and flavoured fish served with a generous selection of salads and breads.

Picnic- some of our dreamiest days have included a picnic. From a classic picnic or a Lakeland buffet, there’s something for everyone to choose from. 

Festival food- for our larger events, we create our outdoor food festival with an international flavour; choose from bbq items, paella, pizzas, curry, chilli nachos and more. ‘Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.’

Bar- Of course, if you’re going to have catering at your event, you’re going to need a bar! From a simple rustic wooden bar under canvas to our converted horsebox bar or super slick back lit frosted acrylic bar we have a set up to suit. Options include ‘free bars’ where you pay for the drinks on a sale or return basis or simply pay for our infrastructure and bar team to a cash bar with a minimum spend. 

We pride ourselves on using local partners and local ingredients so that guests enjoy the real taste of the Lake District. As a county we’re bursting with creative culinary talent, and it’s only right you get to experience some of that whilst you’re our guests. Remember, happiness is sharing good food with good friends.
