“Massive thank you to THE most fabulous wedding caterer, Darby & Joan, you & the girls went above & beyond & everyone loved you!”, Lucy & Richard 2014

“I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you & your team did at my daughter’s wedding at Yeldersley Hall last week. I don’t know what we would have done without you all. The day ran so smoothly & we were able to relax and enjoy it.  The food you prepared was excellent & the service to the tables exemplary. Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had been to, & that was partly down to you & your team. I would recommend your company highly.   Thank you again for a job well done” Suzanne Meehan 2014

Darby & Joan can provide the vintage china, the food, will dress your tables & can also provide waitresses (price on application) so you can enjoy a fabulously indulgent party.  

 

“Thank you for being so great to work with for our wedding.  You were so accommodating to what we wanted & so helpful! Our guests absolutely loved the afternoon tea – so thank you so much!”, Ellie & Tom 2014

 

 

 



Classic Afternoon Tea

Tea parties are perfect for any kind of celebration & have seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years.  You can choose your own fillings for your delicate sandwiches or rolls, enjoy our freshly baked scones served with thick cream & strawberry preserve, followed by endless cups of tea poured from our vintage teapots .

You can organise your tea party anywhere you choose – at your home, in a village hall, your holiday cottage, at work – anywhere that you fancy.  Whether your party is for a small group or a celebration for 200 guests, we can help.

We include a layer cake per 12 guests for parties under 30 guests.

You can then add on whatever sweet or savoury delights you wish from our additional menu.
