Ashley provided catering and staff for a birthday event at our home. I cannot praise Ashley and his team highly enough for delivering outstanding food and service. The whole event was just perfect, the food was stunning - beautifully presented and incredibly delicious. The staff were beyond brilliant, ensuring that everyone had a full glass and plenty to eat, and generally keeping things running smoothly so we could relax and enjoy the company of our guests. We’ve had so many compliments on both the food and the service. If you’re considering using the Rural Food Company – do it! They will not disappoint, brilliant menus executed to perfection and great service – what more could you want? More...

Absolutely amazing dinner party. Ash was lovely, the food was incredible and there was no washing up for me at the end! Highly recommend trying them out. We all chipped in instead of going out for dinner and it meant drinking our own wine without restaurant prices, no closing time and no babysitters! Definitely give them a go, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much Ash x More...

I cannot recommend Ashley and The Rural Food Company enough. I knew from the moment I contacted them to cater for our wedding that I wanted them to do it, Ash is easy going and happy to discuss ideas to make dreams become reality and his service is of the highest standard.

Fantastic spread provided. Everyone was so impressed with the food, one of the best BBQ we have ever had. The ribs went down especially well. If you want to get fed well and impress all your friends for any occasion give this man a call! More...

Q&As

Although we have many favourite dishes that we have created over the years we try to offer a bespoke service individual to each clients needs. Although if I had to make a choice it would probably be one of my personal favourite dishes called 'Scallops Old Fashioned' Pan Seared Scallops with Parsnips Puree, Haggis Boudin, Julienne Fries and an Orange and Whiskey Glaze.

The most important thing for me is to have a chat with the client about what is it they want. I have a short questionnaire I use which will pin point exactly what they want as well as what they don't want. Kind of like a food Heaven and food Hell scenario.

I have had a passion for food my whole life and so when I started cooking have always loved what I do for a living. Now I have my own company I am thriving on the challenge of catering for all types of tastes in all types of circumstances. I believe that food is a never ending story and that there is always more to learn and more challenges ahead.

I always wanted my own business and put myself in a great position to be able to do so after working in the yachting industry for six years. On returning to England I felt that It was the right time as I had spent my whole career making other people's business' a success I now wanted to do the same for myself.

A catering company is only as good as it's head chef and with my experience and knowledge I truly do believe that I can offer the best product at a very competitive price.
