Afternoon Tea Catering

At ASJ we can cater for any event, corporate awards ceremony, wedding breakfast or a special birthday party. Our afternoon tea service is perfect for every special occasion, whats more we can make it personal to you, in fact we have never catered for two afternoon tea services the same. Remember afternoon tea catering is intended to be a light offering between meals, for a fuller meal you could consider one of our buffet options, or add items to our afternoon tea service.

All of our products are freshly baked and savories freshly prepared on the morning of your event. We can cater a special diet, and understand that requirements of your guests, from young guests to allergy sufferers we have the solution for every person that is important to you.

We have created a sample menu for each of the services that we offer, we hope these will be a useful guide to you when event planning, but should you have a different idea or exact requirements feel free to tell us, and we will do our best to offer you exactly what is required. It’s your event and we understand how important it is to you, let us take care of the hard work and bring additional ideas to you… we will never try to tell you how it should be done as every event is personal to you!
