Marquees and Rustic Barns 

We at Vanilla pride ourselves in our ability to produce fabulous food, all served with a smile, in the most difficult of conditions. It may be a paddock in some remote corner of Hampshire with no tap in sight, or a dilapidated agricultural barn on a working farm with a cow shed for a field kitchen, but it holds no terrors for us. You can be confident that we have done it all before, faced the challenges that these situations create, and found the solutions to whatever problems that arise. More importantly all this is done in accordance with industry best practice to ensure the quality and hygiene of your food is unaffected by your choice of venue.

Size doesn’t faze us either. Big or small, our chef’s will produce first class food for you and your guests. Whether it is 500 for a five course banquet in a marquee on the front lawn of a stately home, or 50 for a BBQ in your back garden under a gazebo, the quality of the food and the professionalism of the staff is guaranteed. We will undertake the set-up prior to the event and be there through to the end at the take-down, with our event manager taking overall responsibility for ensuring your day runs smoothly. We can supply all the tableware, glassware, and kitchen equipment you could possibly need, and your food and drink will be kept chilled until needed in one of our modern refrigerated vans. Vanilla’s staff are all our own, and since we have trained them, they know what to do under the most trying of circumstances.  

And then there is the weather................

This is England, and much as we would like to imagine our marquee standing in a green meadow sprinkled with wild flowers beneath a cloudless blue sky with a bright yellow sun shining down on us, the reality is occasionally a little different! From time to time the primary colours of summer give way to the greys and browns of rain, wind, mud, and even snow. Fortunately, none of these have stopped Team Vanilla in their tracks. We always have a Plan B (and occasionally C), even if our clients don’t! Although the rain might be drumming on the canvas above, we ensure that your party carries on below without a hitch, and whilst the weather may have let you down, your expectations for the day will have been exceeded thanks to Vanilla’s know-how.
