Our food

Here at Create we have a reputation for providing high quality, professional catering at a competitive price. From our popular working lunches to full fork buffets, we have the experience and expertise to make sure your event tastes fantastic and runs like clockwork.

Our menu

Designed by our executive chef, Richard Walton-Allen, the Create menu has something for everyone. We can spice up your working lunch with one of our delicious sandwich platters or finger buffets.

We would love to bring some Create cheer right to your desk or door with our delivered food menu. Download the special Christmas menu here or go over to our delivered food pages to find out more.

During the last few months we have been realigning our business and working on new ventures to give our trainees more opportunities to vary the experience they receive at Create. All of this means that we are now delivering our great local food in a slightly different way. This website shows you some examples of what we can do for you, but we would ask you to get in touch so that we can decide with you a bespoke catering service just for you.

Because we don’t want to compromise on the quality of our local ingredients or our care in preparing your food we would ask our customers for just a few things in terms of the way we process your order.

From the 1st of November we would ask you to place you order at least 2 working days before you require delivery. This will enable us to ensure we have the correct products for your order and arrange our delivery schedule to get your order to you on time. In addition to this we would also ask that all orders under 100.00 be paid for prior to delivery by cash, card, cheque or BACs payment.

Please do call us to chat about your food requirement and we will do everything we can to meet your needs.
