We recommend HOT COALS. We had a family Christmas Lunch and they all wanted Pizza. What a Success!! Delicious finger food to start followed by pizzas and yummy salads. Beautifully presented. Efficient and kind staff/ they looked after the odd funny request. Then everything was left immaculate.

Thank you.

Thank you so so much for everything leading up to our wedding and on the day! We have had so many compliments on how good the food was and that everyone was so lovely to talk to! We even saw a photo of liam in the photobooth so it was great to see everyone having a good time! Thanks so much, We have been recommending you left, right and centre!

The most amazing catering team to work with! They made our wedding care free and their food was absolutely amazing! Their service was outstanding and I could not recommend them highly enough for anyone thinking of using their services for any event or function.

I recently had Hot Coals cater our home function. They were fantastic! Greeting me on the night with reassuring words that I was to relax & enjoy the night; they would take care of everything! And they certainly did! Plentiful food all around the house, lovely smiles & conversations with guests! Our gluten free & vegetarian guests were very well looked after! As we opted for the external woodfire oven, there was no need to use my kitchen, and the food just magically appeared! They cleared glasses, bottles & plates as they worked the rooms and even helping cutting and serving of desserts and dips and nibbles that I had supplied myself! Could not fault them, would highly recommend Hot Coals!

Hot Coals is an outstanding catering company. They are forthcoming with information and questions are answered without delay. The food is absolutely amazing, didn’t even have leftovers to enjoy at home, and this event was a 16th birthday party. The staff are so lovely and the young adults that are employed to wait are very happy and polite. I couldn’t recommend them more for any occasion or event, absolute perfection.

We use Hot Coals for our school fete each year. They are the first people I lock in. Excellent communication, very professional and always deliver as promised. Highly Recommend.
