Speciality Crockery

If you're looking for speciality crockery hire to complete your place settings, you're in the right place. From platters to cake stands, we've got what you need.

For some things you need specific equipment and this is when speciality crockery hire comes to the fore. From platters and serving dishes for buffets to tapas dishes and even cake stands, we’ve got a little bit of everything you could need.

What sort of speciality crockery hire do I need?

If you’re serving food in a buffet setting, you’ll need more than just plates. Platters are a stylish way of serving larger quantities of food ready for your guests to pick and choose. We have oval and rectangular platters to help meet the requirements of the fussiest caterer.

Tapas dishes are great for serving little portions of food. These can either be singular or in presentation sets and are smaller than normal plates and dishes. These can come in a variety of shapes and types, to match the food being served.

Cake stands are not just an important part of wedding receptions, but are also used in many other kinds of events. Afternoon tea stands are popular for serving cakes and finger buffets, while the larger square based cake stands hold gateaux and sponge cakes as well as the more traditional wedding cake.

Does speciality crockery hire need to be cleaned before it is returned?

We know just how much of a chore clleaning crockery hire can be, but did you also that it is the most frequent time any crockery gets broken while out on hire.

For this reason we have made it compulsory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing we ask our customers to do is to ensure all crockery is scraped clean of food debris and residual liquid before it is repacked ready for collection.

How does delivery of speciality crockery hire work?

All of our speciality crockery hire items are cleaned and checked before we dispatch them. We use branded packing boxes and plenty of bubble wrap to make sure they reach you in tip-top condition. However, we know from experience the unexpected can happen in transit and as such we always recommend adding a couple of extras in to ensure mishaps can’t ruin an event.
