Situated in the centre of Chandler's Ford, just north of Southampton, Bay Leaves Larder is one of Hampshire's finest rustic buffet and finger food caterers. Creating delicious treats and meals out of the Bay Leaves Larder community store, which also functions as a delightful coffeeshop and delicatessen café, proprietor Sarah Guilder has been masterminding the business for many years.

From mountains of canapés, glorious finger and fork buffets, sandwich platters or afternoon teas, to a huge range of toothsome sweet treats including various cakes and flapjacks, plus cheese selections and all those rustic, homely dishes you would expect from the finest succulent produce the county of Hampshire has to offer - read on or get in touch with Sarah directly to learn more.

The Food

Bay Leaves Larder specialises in buffet food, rather than the traditional formal dining approach at wedding receptions, entailing a labour-intensive setup of a series of separate courses and the more complicated personal table service that it inevitably requires.

Finger And Fork Buffets

Bay Leaves Larder put on a truly delectable spread. From bitesized canapés, such as filo chutney pastries, olive and mozzarella toothpicks or prawn and salmon blinis, to rows and rows of fresh crispy spring rolls, cocktail sausages, cold salmon platters, rustic salads and couscous bowls - there are always plenty of simply delicious, tempting morsels to tuck into. Add to these the amazing desserts! Besides afternoon tea, there are a variety of mouthwatering cakes, cupcakes, flapjacks etc. to satiate your sweet tooth.

Vintage China Hire

Bay Leaves Larder continues the theme of rustic country chic with their collection of vintage china crockery, which you can hire out on your big day as a standalone service if you require. The collections are mix-and-match and include a range of items from cups, saucers and plates to milk jugs, cake-stands, teapots, sugarbowls and the like. What's more, you can even combine these with Bay Leaves' amazing catering service to supply delicious cakes, scones and sandwiches for a vintage English afternoon tea.


You can hire china on an individual basis, or you can take advantage of their packages for a more complete afternoon tea party.
