We have a small dedicated team who work well together to ensure that your special event runs smoothly as far as the catering is concerned.

We pride ourselves on good honest baking done with great love and care so that your special occasion, be it a happy or sad one will be everything you want it to be.

Afternoon Teas

So many of us are in lockdown right now and having to self-isolate, one day seems just the same as the next. Today was just the same as yesterday and tomorrow will be much the same as today.

Well why not make tomorrow a little bit different and give yourself something to look forward to.

An afternoon tea with all the trimmings delivered to your door. A selection of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream topped with a strawberry, chocolate cake, quiche, smoked salmon blinis, chicken skewers, sticky sausages and more.

Just decide what you would like and let us know and we will try our best to provide the afternoon tea to meet your needs.

As ever food preparation hygiene is strictly adhered to, an absolute necessity in the present circumstances.

All you have to do is call us and we will do the rest to make your afternoon tea something to remember. We are quite happy to deliver within a 10 mile radius of Skipton.

Your tea will be nowhere near as expensive as you might think. Just tell us what you would like in your afternoon tea and we will tell you the cost.

Your afternoon tea will come neatly packed in a box, all you have to do is lay the table, arrange your treat, then sit down, eat and enjoy.

Christmas Cakes

Yes, we know Christmas is seven months away but it's never too early to get your order in for one of Alison's home-made Christmas Cakes!

Every cake is lovingly made with some of the finest ingredients available - butter, fruit soaked in orange, cherries, sultanas and raisins.

When the cake is cooked it is then laced with brandy.

You don't of course have to wait until Christmas to eat your cake, Alison's cakes are perfect for birthdays and other special occasions.

You are more than welcome to choose between an ordinary fruit cake or if you wish you can have a rich fruit cake, both are made to the same highest standards.

For such a time as this

In these uncertain times we are bringing back the basics of the Traditional Farm House Kitchen.

With pantry classics such as rock buns, raspberry buns, scones, cakes, currant pastry, biscuits, along with our famous deepfilled quiches - cheese and onion, broccoli and mushroom, all freshly made for you to enjoy with a relaxing brew.

Let us become part of your daily routine delivering fresh baking to your doorstep.

All you have to do is call us on 07740 256899 or email us at alisonwoodhead@outlook.com for next day delivery.

We will be keeping our prices as low as possible so that you and those you love can have a little treat.

Wedding Catering

Over the years we have developed a great skill in providing an excellent wedding buffet.

Generally speaking we provide a sumptuous spread of cut sandwiches, quiche, sausage rolls, coronation chicken, honey glazed sausages, salad, vol au vents, the list could go on and that is only the savoury table.

On the sweet table there are more scones with cream and strawberries, fruit salad, apple tart, cheese cake, triffle, chocolate sponge, coffee and walnut sponge and of course Victoria sponge. Once again the list could go on. We will basically put together the menu of your choice to make your day all that you want it to be.

We have even been known to cook a half decent curry when asked to and we wouldn't rule out bangers and mash or pie and pies!

So why not speak to us about what food you would like to make your day special.

Funeral Teas

These can be very sad times for all concerned but when the Service is over family and friends will often find great comfort in gathering together to talk and reminisce.

We are able to provide the perfect buffet for the occasion whether you are going back home, back to the church or to another venue.

Over the past 20 years we have been to a great many of the pubs, clubs and village halls in and around the Dales and further afield.

Simply tell us where you have arranged to go and we will turn up with all that is needed to make your tea special.

We generally cater for between 15 and 100 people, but please talk to us as we will always try and meet your requirements.

When it comes to the buffet we will happily discuss your requiremnts, choice of sandwiches, rolls, salads, quiches, hot and cold plates and of course the sweet table.
