PETER WILLIS TELLS THE THE DOUGLAS WILLIS STORY:

In the 1940s Douglas Willis my grandfather founded our first “grocers” shop selling fresh game. A little bit later he moved in to a butcher’s shop and rented a farm with the ideology of supplying meat from pasture to plate, which is still maintained today.

We have beef from our very own herd of Welsh cattle and also Welsh lambs from our own and local farms in the beautiful Usk valley and we source the finest poultry and game from handpicked producers to ensure the principles of care and quality is maintained throughout.

In 1961, my father David joined the business. A few years later our business expanded to include 3 local retail shops.

In 1986 I joined the company working with my father in our retail shops. In the late 80’s my father started the wholesale catering side of the business, providing meat to local businesses. My brother Sean joined the wholesale side in the 1990’s.

The original ethos established by my Grandfather of “Never compromise quality or service and you will always have customers.” is still maintained today.

Our long term goal has always been to provide high quality locally produced meat to a sustainable customer base ensuring customer loyalty and satisfaction.

The natural progression for our fresh meat shops was to offer “food to go” and outside catering, so Douglas Willis Retail expanded in 2010 and now provides a fresh and exciting takeaway food experience along with a Speciality Catering Service – the complete eating experience.

With our passion for food, first class service and eye catching presentation we have built up an enviable reputation in the catering world.

Whether you are looking for something to cook for dinner, a bite to eat for lunch, a full buffet service, hog roast, bbq, carvery, wedding catering, Christmas party or birthday party to be catered for, Douglas Willis is here to help.

Catering FAQs

Expand all

Your expert caterer will be able to advise you on the most suitable menus and service.

It is important to know the following before deciding on a catering company:

  • Event Specialists - Many caterers handle certain types of events on a regular basis, such as weddings and corporate events.

  • Different cuisines - Caterers might specialise in different kinds of cuisine. Some caterers may provide a fine dining experience while others excel at barbecues that suit company picnics.

  • Special requirements - If you have special requirements for the food or a specific menu in mind make sure your caterer is happy to meet those requirements.

  • Venue - Your gathering might be taking place at someone’s home, a venue or outdoors. It can be helpful if your caterer has worked at the venue before.

  • Tastings - Ask for a tasting to make sure the food is of a high standard. Most caterers will prepare one for you at no charge, allowing you to assess the quality of their cooking before you hire them.

You could look for caterers with a foundation degree, higher national diploma or degree in Professional Cookery and Culinary Arts.

Before you choose a caterer, you could read testimonials and see pictures of their food on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and read reviews from past customers, too.
