Field and Fork

Field & Fork are the current caterers at Southend Barns and have been with us since we opened in 2012 creating fantastic food and providing exceptional service.

Wedding breakfast packages

Their package prices include all equipment hire, table linen, choice of soft drinks and full wait staff service throughout your chosen wedding breakfast, as well as the management and service of post ceremony drinks and wine during the meal. This gives you the flexibility of providing your own wine/champagne for the drinks reception and meal without incurring corkage charges. The inclusive corkage finishes at the end of the meal. For the evening there is a cash bar which serves spirits, wine, beer, lager and soft drinks.

All of Field & Fork’s menu packages are available to view and download from their website

The planning process

Once you have confirmed your Southend Barns booking, Field & Fork are informed so that their services are booked for your special day. They will then contact you to guide you through the planning process and arrange a catering meeting. This usually takes place 6-8 months before your wedding or before you send your invitations out.

Field & Fork have events co-ordinators available to answer any queries you might have, either by telephone or via email, during the planning process.

One month before the wedding, you will be asked to confirm your final numbers and any outstanding details.

Don’t worry about remembering everything as you will be sent reminders at each step of the way!

“What can we say to you guys!! How do we thank you for truly making our wedding the best day of our lives.

In our naive world we had no idea prior to our wedding how important caterers are and how much you do- forgive us….we thought they just did the food!! We are now fully educated – you guys do IT ALL!!!!!

We are SO thankful to all of the team, the event co-ordinators in the office who emailed and chatted with us in the lead up, Janet for meeting with us initially and helping plan out our day, the amazing staff at the tasting, then the lovely lady at our drop off and finally the staff on the day. We are SO sorry we don’t know names but each and every one of you made our process so easy, relaxed and incredible.

To the team who worked our wedding day, honestly we don’t know your names because you were like little angels (male angels too!!) you floated around making everything perfect without us even feeling your presence! We always had a drink – or someone to take it, our guests couldn’t ask too much of anyone, things just happened and we didn’t see anyone do them! We have friends who work in events management who said the next day….” we were moved, and I didn’t know I was being moved… that’s my job… that’s what I do and I didn’t notice! It was amazing!!”

At one point… I swear I thought it in my head, “I really fancy a lemonade” and then two minutes later our table waiter arrived with a lemonade. You can’t ask for more than that… a mind reader!!!

The food… oh the food!!! Incredible, absolutely incredible. Our guests are still talking about it. The Shoulder of Lamb has gone down in history for a lot of our guests as the best meal they have ever eaten!!! Every single person has said how incredible the food was.

I won’t go on, but we needed to tell you how much appreciate all you did. Everyone. Down to the lovely waiters/waitresses… we thank you.”
