Crew Catering

The Henry’s Beard Team have been looking after festival crews all over the UK for 20 years . We believe crew catering is all about delicious food, great service and creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere.  We can cater for up to 700 people per service. We build our own kitchens, have all our own kitchen equipment including cookers, walk in fridges and sinks.


We really like people! We are happy to go that bit further, save a dinner back for Joey’s team who are  working late, quickly make 200 packed lunches and deliver for gate staff. Its all part of the job we love. Everyone who works with us is chosen because they are kind, capable, honest and reliable.  Our chefs are talented, friendly and above all have a passion for food. A lot of us like ABBA!


We realise that price is really important for you and we can deliver exceptional value for money whilst being socially and environmentally responsible. We are very happy to talk to you from the beginning with your budget in mind. We have great links with farmers and producers meaning we can source incredible, often, local ingredients at a competitive price.  We have been doing this job for 20 years so we have a few ways you can save money that maybe you hadn’t thought of. It doesn’t have to cost the Earth!

The Environment and Lovely Fresh Ingredients

The environment is core to our business. We recognise that we need to take responsibility for all our actions. We have a constantly evolving procurement policy and menus that just gets better and better every year. We buy from selected free-range egg farmers, only use local Denhay bacon, can source small scale farmed free-range meats and wild boar and venison. We buy organic vintage cheddar straight from a farm in Somerset. We source leaf salad from local suppliers wherever we are and always request bumblebee friendly English tomatoes from Planet Thanet!!!  We always use fair-trade beverages. We would be happy for you to visit any of our suppliers; it would be a good day out!

We are avid recyclers and hate waste. You can depend on us to stay tidy and not make or leave any extra mess for you.

We won’t buy over packaged products, we rarely use single use cups and we always use biodegradable disposables.  We can help you stay GREEN!
