Hot Fork Buffet

Below is an example of our Hot Fork Buffet menu, pre Covid-19! Unfortunately we currently can't run this menu, but it gives you an idea if what we can offer in the future! 

A great celebration alternative for the winter months when a sit down meal, or pre-ordering is not an option. Your guests can try some from each dish.

You can also ask us to design you a BBQ menu for the summer months, or see our Quintessential Summer Fork buffet here. Click here for the printable version of the Winter Hot Fork buffet, as seen below.
