Private Dining

Enjoy a restaurant experience in the comfort of your own home for 4-10 people. 

 Our chefs prepare your multi-course meal, serve it from your kitchen and clear up afterwards!

Ideal for birthdays, anniversaries or when staying in a holiday cottage - who wants to cook when on holiday?


Event Catering

Whether you need delicious canapés to help that art exhibition open in style or have an elaborate event in mind for corporate sponsors, we can help.

Smoke & Samphire can look after everything from food choices, staffing right through to wine and beer pairings to go with the food.

We can help with weddings, too!

Food Service


There are times when both the prospect of going out to a restaurant or indeed making food yourself is just too much. 

We have a great solution: chef-cooked classics just like Mum's favourites. Probably the best way to relax with a glass of wine on a Friday night, especially after travelling. 

Our team can even switch on the oven!
