Wedding hire

We were recommended flame bbq from our venue and after looking at the website we booked a taster. The taster was incredible, so much food and such friendly passionate staff. On the wedding day the whole team were amazing, we had a hog roast followed by a cheese platter and pizzas later and everything was so good. Every guest could not stop telling me how great the food was. We also hired in the wet bar which was more than worth the money. Friendly, passionate experienced staff and very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of hosting a party/event.


We originally found flame BBQ online when wedding planning and quickly booked in for their taster day. We were blown away by not only the huge range of food but the passion that all the staff had. The hardest part was choosing the menu as everything was incredible. When COVID hit, they worked quickly to move our date with us and made everything so easy. Then it came to the day, their lovely staff made sure to find myself and my husband to make sure we were getting the canapés after our photos. The main course was beautifully presented with the food on each table (we choose the family sharing style) and tasted just as wonderfully as it did at the taster day. We received constant compliments on our food choice and the curried banana salad was the talk of the town the following day.

There isn’t a single thing we would of changed and we really can’t thank the whole team for the effort and work they put in to our day. If we ever have a catered event, without a doubt we would be booking this amazing team.

Private Dining feast

Thank you so much for an amazing private dining meal last night.

The food was just delicious as always, plenty of it and beautifully presented. We loved the stories about where the food had come from and the cooking tips to go with it.

We loved cooking the food ourselves on the fire and being fully immersed in fire cooking which you are so passionate about.

We cannot wait to enjoy a feast with you again soon and very excited to hear about your plans for the cooking classes.



Flame BBQ provided all the food for my 60th BBQ and they were simply outstanding… The food options and portions were perfect. In particular I would like to thank Veronika and Aidan for all their great work on the day.

The Best bbq Caterers!

I would recommend this company to anyone n everyone ! The bbq was SO delicious ! We had a spit fire lamb roast , amazing Burgers and Chicken! Veronika and Mathew were so friendly and helpful on the day. The salads and all the usual trimmings were excellent ! We requested Halal lamb which Mathew kindly sourced. Fabulous team and Fabulous food! I would highly recommend them and use them again for any other events I host !

Anniversary BBQ Pack

We really appreciated the extra touches such as the gift bouquet of flowers for my wife, the free bottle of Prosecco and the extra South African milk tarts!

Thank you so much to FlameBBQ for making our 1st Anniversary so special! Re-creating the food from the wedding absolutely made our day.

Anniversary BBQ Pack

FlameBBQ were our caterers for our wedding in 2019 and did an amazing job. For our first wedding anniversary this year I wanted to surprise my wife and do something special in these challenging times during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Just like for our wedding, Veronika and her team were very accommodating in helping us recreate our wedding meal at home. We enjoyed the meats, salads, desserts and grazing platter just like a year ago and it was the perfect way to remember our special day and savour those flavours again.

There were some particularly nice touches such as the gift bouquet of flowers for my wife, a free bottle of Prosecco and also some delicious South African milk tarts as an extra.

Thank you so much to FlameBBQ for making our 1st Anniversary so special! Re-creating the food from the wedding absolutely made our day.

Thank you so much

Veronika and Matthew and the team at Flame BBQ.
Thank you SO much for your incredible service and support at our wedding in October 2019. The hog roast and the amazing sides, canapes and desserts went down an absolute treat with our guests- they are still talking now about how delicious the food was. However your support went so much further than this- as we were having a 'do it yourself' wedding in a village hall we really depended on your team to keep the food and drinks running smoothly throughout the day, from start to finish. We genuinely couldn't have done it without you and your service went above and beyond anything that we could have expected. Your communication beforehand was impeccable and Veronika was amazing at making suggestions about how we could run the day. A DIY wedding is very stressful, but you took away a massive chunk of that worry!
We're so glad that we had you there, it really was fantastic.
Thanks again, Steph and Ed.

Love + Thanks

Thank you for being the best caterers ever! The food & Service were amazing & we can't thank you enough for helping make our day perfect!
We received so many compliments on the sharing boards & beautiful wedding cake they really were amazing! We wish you all the success in the world! Mr & Mrs Walker

Everyone LOVED! the food!

We cannot thank you enough for the most amazing food & service. Everyone LOVED! the food. You guys have been amazing from the very first phone call so thank you! Frase & Alison

Thank you so much for taking the stress out of our day.

Dear Veronika, we are writing you , Francois and your team for your fantastic efford on our special day. We love food so naturally the meal had to be integral on our Wedding! Ever since meeting you all on taster day we had total confidence in what you could provide and on the day you definitely delivered. I have never seen food so photogenic but of course it tasted great too. We have had so many of our guests comment on how the food was one of the highlights of the day and they particullary liked the social aspect of sharing platter. We have had so much positive feedback from the lamb to the banana salad and the amazing Grazing table. Thank you to you and your team for taking the stress out of our day. You really went above and beyond , from helping set up garden games to sorting out our fruit water. You come highly recommended! Keep up the great work. All the best. Zoran & Juliette

Absolutely Brilliant!

Just wanted to thank you both for an absolutely brilliant hog roast on Saturday night. All of the guests were extremely complimentary and said it was the best they’d ever had, all the way down to the crackling and stuffing – so thank you so much. As for the S’mores – a stroke of genius – really went down well with everybody, not just the children! In fact, everything from the pre-party communication to the final event was brilliant, and I couldn’t have asked for more. Hopefully I will come across you again at a future event, but will definitely recommend you if ever I’m asked for suggestions on where to go for an expert, top notch party caterer. Many thanks again.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff for the most amazing food and service Saturday!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff for the most amazing food and service Saturday! We were blown away and had so many people comment on how good the food was, it completely exceeded our expectations! The presentation was faultless and it didn't go unnoticed how hard you all worked, collecting bottles, clearing up and making it all run smoothly. The wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted amazing, again we had so many compliments, we couldn't be happier with it all, it was just perfect and made our day! We will send over a professional photos we get but have included some below as our guests took a quite a few :) Thank you! Beth and Gary

Wedding Catering

Just wanted to say thank you so much for doing the catering for our wedding this year. We had so many lovely comments about the food, that it was delicious, and so much choice! We loved having the platters in the middle of each table, and people really enjoyed dishing everything out - it was great to see everyone getting involved. Thank you so much to Veronica especially for all your hard work coordinating the catering during the run up, it was much appreciated especially when answering all my questions, and accommodating the changes in the menu! We can't thank the team enough. Ellie & Chris

Weeding catering

A massive shout to Matthew and his team from Flame BBQ. They catered for our wedding on the 27/719. We had excellent compliments over the food and most of the guests went back for thirds. We found Matthew and his team to be very professional, they catered for all our needs and made the night go very smooth. All in all...this guys excellent and you won’t be disappointed, he does an amazing job and the food is fantastic. Well done guys and thank you.

Amazing Food and Team for a Corporate BBQ

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the guys yesterday. The food was absolutely amazing – we’ve had lots of compliments from our teams – and you all were so friendly and helpful. It was fantastic! And thank you for the extra gazebos!!! Much needed in that heat!!!

The food was incredible!

Just to say thank you so much to everyone for Saturday. The food was incredible and service was beyond our expectations! Once again, thanks so much for all of your help - you've been incredible and we would 100% recommend! Many thanks

What a fantastic team!

The Flame BBQ team catered our wedding this June and I can honestly say they were everything we hoped for. We had the Hog Wedding menu which was absolutely fantastic (the prawn tempura canapé is amazing) and then also the breakfast service the next morning, as many of our guests camped overnight, and that was a godsend. The staff were super friendly and professional the whole time, led by the brilliant Matthew. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was a success and I can't thank them enough (Matthew even went on a booze run for us during the evening without being asked when he worried we might run out of the supplies we'd brought ourselves, what a hero). I'd definitely recommend!

Utterly Fantastic

I just had to drop you a review, to tell you how amazing you and the team were on Saturday. From the very start since receiving your quotes, through to the tasting, final planning and the wedding day, it has been utterly fantastic. The food was incredible, amazing quality and so much of it. All of the guests said they had never had such a choice of food at an event and it was something different. The grazing table was just insane too! I have attached some photos just in case you didn’t take any. In addition to the above, Veronika you are a star! My type of woman, gets a job done and done well and took all of the stress away. I honestly could not have asked for more from you and the team. Every little detail was thought of and catered for. Please share this on social media and your website as you guys are the BOMB! To anyone looking for a catering and drinks company….DO NOT hesitate to get in touch. You will not regret it. Best decision of the day. Thank you all once again,

Flaming brilliant!

Veronica and her team came to our wedding aid at the eleventh hour and provided an absolutely brilliant feast, just as we wanted and with total professionalism and management that was flawless. They performed above and beyond the call of duty and provided a spectacular wedding BBQ experience. Every single guest commented on how good not only the day but the catering excelled. It made a great day Brilliant! A big thanks to your team, and the value was good too.

Delicious food and friendly service

The Flame Bbq team catered for our wedding evening reception. From the taster evening 6 months before the wedding to the actual day they were a pleasure to work with. We opted for a hog roast and sides with vegan and vegetarian options too. They also made a stunning wedding cake using whole cheeses which was a showstopper. Everything was delicious and our guests were happy and well fed. The bar service they provided looked amazing and there was something to suit all tastes. Highly recommended.


We chose Flame BBQ as they had such great reviews, the exact food we wanted for our rustic style outside wedding and at a great price! The food tasting day was brilliant and affordable. Everything went according to plan on the day and they were great at catering for our vegetarian and vegan guests too! Absolutely fantastic!

Testimonial #17

A huge thank you too the Flame BBQ team! They catered for over 50 family and friends at my Parents surprise 30th wedding anniversary. The BBQ was fantastic, with a Lamb spit roast, selection of BBQ meats and salads. They also provides a vegetarian option of stuffed butternut squash and vegetarian sausage, which I’m told was delicious! The team were very professional, arriving on time and leaving us with no cleaning to do! We would not hesitate to have them cater for our next event, and would recommend their services to family and friends.

Yammiest service ever

We hired Flame BBQ for a BBQ at our home on the 01/07 and we really didn't know what to expect. Matthew and the team were efficient, quick in setting up and getting down to cooking. All the guests were served promptly and on time. Every single one was raving about food and how tasty everything was. Hog was just delicious and salmon pasta salad was just amazing and my absolute favourite. I would highly recommend the company. Yammy food and loads of it, great service, lovely people, prompt service. I would highly recommend these guys for your Saturday BBQ or a Wedding/Event.

Thank you so much Matt, the hog roast was amazing and ALL of my guests made positive comments on how lovely it was. The fact that you catered for the celiac and vegetarians too made it so stress free. I would recommend Flame BBQ to anyone. Thank you Matt nothing was too much trouble.


I contacted Flame BBQ and had an almost immediate reply from a lovely guy called Matthew. I explained I only wanted a small BBQ and was unsure if they would cater for a such a small wedding party of 50 in my back garden. His reply was of course, no problem... and also encouraged us to attend a tasting day - which we did..and really enjoyed not only the fantastic food but also how welcome everyone made us feel.The tasting day was amazing and gave us plenty to sample and to choose much so I wish we could have had it all it was soooo good.Our Wedding day went perfectly - and complimented beautifully by the courteous service and extremely delicious food that Flame supplied - We couldn't have wished for better!!!Every single guest commented on the best wedding day and the perfect food on offer..and such nice people too! Best BBQ food they had ever had!! (and the amazing desserts!)I would seriously recommend that anyone looking for caterers can look no more - Flame BBQ are SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you!!


Just to say a bigthank you for our Sunday event BBQ, you made everything go to plan, without usbeing involved, food was amazing, will be using you again for sure thank you. 


Flame BBQ did a wonderful job at our wedding! Great communication leading up to the day, they were so friendly and helpful! They even put on a little veggie and vegan food for our few guests who didn't eat meat. Everyone complimented the excellent food. All in all a wonderful service I would 100% recommend!


Hi Flame,

Thank you very much for your hard work on Saturday. Even though you were 1 1/2hours late because of the M25, the food was prepared on time and was delicious. We have had so many compliments on the catering that we felt we should pass them on. Excellent caterers AND they cleared up afterwards too! Thank you for making our 50th wedding celebration so enjoyable and stress free. Your service was a recommendation in itself.

yours Allan & Margaret Nicholls


"just wanted to leave a note to say how amazing the food was, we had
the Lamb on a spit, the lamb was absolutely 1st class, chicken skewers, burgers
and sausages, the salad with the strawberries was so good, all that everyone
has been saying to us is how great the food was!!! Add to that the guys was
friendly polite and very attentive, the guys even helped our bar staff making
up the kilners of cocktails!!!! thank you so much!"


Great guys, turned up bang on time with more than a plentiful supply of food for numbers of guests we had. Some said these were the best sausages they'd ever had, other comments were that they salad was amazing. Really friendly, helpful and accommodating with great food quality too. Highly recommended. Plenty of guests asked who these guys were because they did such a good job.
Thanks guys.


"We had the team over to do our 30th Wedding anniversary. They were so
discreet in setting up you hardly knew they were there. The food was amazing
and our guests were all very impressed with the high standard of food. They
very attentive, friendly and professional. I would not hesitate in recommending
them to anyone. They made our celebration very special. "


Used for my daughter christening for 120 guest. Well prepared in setting up and serving our guests. All the guest commented on how good the food was and how professional the team were. Nothing was too much of a hassle or an issue and made the event a memorable. Would recommend Flame BBQ without hesitation.
