About Spice Caterers

Jane Batey and Ruth Little have over 30 years experience in catering and are both farmers daughters, who were both brought up on good wholesome food made from homegrown meat and vegetables. It is this background which is at the essence of what we do and gives us our own ‘Spice’ style of food..

Regretfully, due to annual commitments we are unable to take any wedding bookings during September and October.
