Dinner Parties

Let us take care of everything, so you don't have to lift a finger and take all the credit.

Once you've decided who will be joining you for your evening in, simply give us the numbers and your budget and we will do the rest. The menu will be carefully considered to cater for the type of guests and the mood of the party. Choose between a sit-down meal with several courses, buffet or canapes.

Generally we will provide a Chef, bright and attentive waiting staff, cutlery, china and glasses to create a lasting impression.

Our attention to detail continues to the very end. We leave your kitchen so clean and tidy that you won't even know we were there. No cleaning up the next day..it's all part of the Purple Pumpkin service.

About Us

Purple Pumpkin Catering based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent has Head Chef Sean Taylor at the helm. Although he has 30 years of cooking and catering under his belt, he still treats every event, irrespective of size or type with the same enthusiasm and professionalism.

Initially he honed his craft travelling the world and working for the Who’s Who of Music and was on hand to cater for Kylie Minogue, ZZ Top, Barry Manilow, Aerosmith, Elvis Costello, Zucchero and Take That. Not a bad list for starters!

Work then followed through the Admirable Crichton for Prince Charles where he catered to the Prince’s private parties at palaces and abroad. There was also a wedding in Gstaad, Switzerland!

Top stars and Royalty! Where next? It was back to the UK where Sean set up Purple Pumpkin to provide top class catering for events in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and South London.

Sean is certainly energetic and in 2012 Sean was charged with providing the catering staff, the chef and Front of House for the Olympic Broadcasting Services. The food had to be of the highest quality and Sean was responsible for all areas of FOH at the relevant compound restaurants at the Olympic site.

Purple Pumpkin can organise your whole event, from marquees, disco’s, live music, ice-bar, photo booths, selfie mirror’s etc, leaving you with nothing to do but enjoy your event, hassle free.
