Local, Seasonal Catering With A Conscience
Local, Seasonal Catering With A Conscience
We enjoy building personal relationships with each customer as we plan their special meal together, tweaking the menus until they're just right . By the time the big day comes around, it often feels like we are feeding friends, rather than customers.
Doing our part to help preserve the planet is hugely important to us. As a result we run our prep kitchen on 100% renewable energy, grow our own produce which is often incorporated into the meals that we serve and compost our green waste, source all produce as locally as possible, prefer to use low impact meats such as game and only use sustainably sourced seafood. We even recently won an international CSR award for our efforts in sustainability.
The name of our business came to us one evening on our local beach, surrounded by oystercatcher birds flying against a pink sky. They embodied what we love about Norfolk and how the area makes us feel.
Norfolk has incredible produce on offer. By using local, seasonal produce (some of which is grown by us!), we strive to share this love of Norfolk produce with each diner that we feed.
We are a husband and wife team, Jackson is the head chef and master of all things food and Fiona is in charge of front of house, bread baking and the day to day running of things.
Our aim is to serve elegant, bespoke and delicious meals, using locally sourced produce, which Norfolk has an abundance of! Jackson has spent his career working in outside catering starting in London. His extensive experience in outside catering means that our jobs always go smoothly and with minimal stress.

If you consider the food at your wedding to be an important part of the day and want people remember it for years to come, then we should talk!
We write menus bespoke to each couple, so talk to us about food that has been special to you throughout your relationship and we'll incorporate them into your dishes. This means you can tell the story of the two of you through your menu.
We are a small company and each couple that we cater for is individual to us. Often by the time we get to the wedding day, it feels like we are feeding friends rather than customers.
We adapt our dishes to suit any dietary needs, so you don't need to worry about any of your guests going hungry.

"We are long overdue in thanking you for the super-human efforts you and your team made on the 12th July. Without exception every single guest has commented on this superior quality, delivery and style of your wonderful food. You and Fiona put up with all manner of chaos and catastrophe to deliver an impeccable service from start to finish. Thank you for playing such an important part in a day we will remember forever. We continue to sing your praises far and wide and would be more than happy to speak to any prospective clients about the quality they can rely upon from you/Oyster Catcher Catering. Thanks again." -Will and Charlotte
"We all had such a lovely time on Saturday and THANK YOU so much for a really, really delicious meal - everything was perfect and we all enjoyed every mouthful! Your organisation in a strange kitchen was amazing, and you had to put up with interruptions, chatting, dogs, and all sorts! We were so impressed with your calmness! I couldn't believe how immaculate the kitchen was when you'd left. What a treat for me - thank you!!" Polly
"Jackson and Fiona catered our Easter weekend in the Kent countryside and their food was the highlight of the trip. They prepared meals for all three nights (that's a lot of food for 20 people!) and each dish was not only thoughtfully put together but also beautifully presented. They have a great appreciation of local, seasonal produce and they clearly enjoy sharing their food and their talent with others. I would recommend them for any event, no matter how small or large."-Niki
“Oystercatcher Catering provided a top notch feast for my friend's hen do, despite the dodgy kitchen in our rented cottage! They designed a fun menu for our Scottish themed evening (deep fried mars bar wontons were a highlight!) I've eaten in a lot of top restaurants and this food wouldn't have been out of place in any of them. Brilliant stuff, can't recommend them enough." - Sara
