Sarah Saunders – Event Anywhere

Sarah Saunders is a private chef with experience. After fifteen years of service here, she and her team know the house well. Sarah has created some mouth-watering menus that work for the facilities at Merrieweathers. Using local ingredients she cooks traditional and contemporary dishes that are all freshly cooked.

There are menus in a range of styles and for different budgets to suit most occasions, but if you have something specific in mind please contact Sarah directly.

Sarah provided a full catering service over Christmas 2014 for our guests, who enthused:
‘Dear Sarah and your amazing team.
Christmas with you all in charge was truly memorable- an inspiration. We’ll run out of superlatives in our thanks and appreciation!
Watching you all beavering in the kitchen whilst we tucked into all those scrumptious feasts made us enjoy it all the more, as, for once in a blue moon, we weren’t doing it ourselves!
The planning, shopping, cooking etc. etc was brilliant. Well done ! ….You were very long suffering with all the age groups.’

Horam Home Kitchen

We used Jannette from Horam Kitchens for catering and really, really recommend her.
She put together a fantastic bbq spread which she delivered and we cooked ourselves and then on Sunday she cooked and catered for all of us with a 3 course meal and everyone said their food was lovely. She had lots of allergies to cater for and everyone was so chuffed that they could have their meals tweaked so they didn’t have to miss out. She was so helpful with all the planning and then had a lovely team helping her out on Sunday too.
