about us

Our Story of Success

Our delicious gourmet menus have been designed, created, tried and tested in the Heart of the Lake District. We use fresh and local produce to create new and innovative tastes to attract foodies from across the Globe!


The Lakes Catering Company started small, delivering fresh delicious meals to holiday cottages in the local area. However, we soon noticed that our customers wanted more. Over the last 4 years we have grown our family business to cater for large events all over the Lakes. Cooking meals from raw, fresh ingredients at spectacular venues and serving our unique menus to people from all over the UK.

Now, many of our customers have travelled nationwide, up and down the UK to experience our chef’s heavenly food from our home here in the Lake District. Consequently, we had to move office and built a bigger state of the art commercial kitchen.  We are located down the lane from the famous Beatrix Potter’s home where she created those well known books!  Our menus have evolved as well, and we cater for all styles of event from a private party to a fully bespoke wedding experience. We just love making your event the very best!
