Pierreponts at Home

As we hope you’re learning from reading our blog, Pierreponts is so much more than just a café. If you love our food and style of cooking, then you might like to know about about Pierreponts at Home. We describe it as stress-free entertaining, from our kitchen to yours. And that’s exactly what it is.

Party time

Whether it’s an intimate dinner party or a large event, we are able to provide delicious food so that you can concentrate on enjoying your guests’ company and not stressing in the kitchen.

Over the years we’ve provided food for a wide range of events, from corporate canapé receptions to sports day picnics. We’ve catered for christenings and funerals, as well as events including Henley Regatta.  Our largest booking to date is for a wedding this summer for 200 guests.

Time for dinner

If it’s hot food that you’d like, then we offer a selection of mains including lamb tagine, fish pie and aubergine parmigana. All are served with seasonal vegetables or salad. We can also provide starters, including potted crab and soup with homemade bread. And if you’ve room for dessert after all that, we have a range of sweet tarts such as rich chocolate, glazed lemon and almond with seasonal fruit.

We provide a lot of food for dinner parties – perfect for when you want to entertain but don’t have the time or the inclination to spend hours in the kitchen. Some of our customers ask for the food to be put on their own dishes so that they can pass it off as their own! Don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us.

Salad selection
Eating al fresco

Being so close to the river, we are often asked to provide picnics during the summer months. Popular choices are our savoury tarts with a selection of tasty salads, followed by one of our famous cakes – and we have a dozen flavours from which to choose.

If you’re already thinking ahead to your school sports day, then we’d be happy to help provide a delicious picnic for you. We also give a 10% donation to your school association as a thank you for choosing us.

Afternoon tea

Our afternoon tea parties are very popular particularly for weddings and birthdays. We provide freshly-made sandwiches, homemade scones and our delicious cakes. We can also put you in touch with local companies who hire out vintage china if that’s the look you’re going for.

Delivery and other services

Like the café, our style is very casual and informal, so we don’t provide staff. Instead, we will deliver the food and set it up to your requirements. If you have ordered hot food, it will be delivered chilled and we provide clear instructions for how to reheat it. Delivery is free within a five-mile radius. Beyond that we are happy to deliver to any address in the area for a charge.

If you require additional crockery or cutlery then let us know and we can arrange hire at an additional cost. We can also provide special occasion cakes to give your event the wow factor.

For a large event, do get in touch sooner rather than later but for smaller gatherings of up to 20 people, we can normally provide food with just 48 hours’ notice.

The Pierreponts at Home menu can be found here. This is just a starting point though listing some of our most popular choices. So do get in touch with your ideas as we’re very happy to provide dishes that suit you and help you create the perfect party.
