What we can do for you

Welcome to A & J Buffets and Bars, offering you bespoke food and drink solutions. Whatever your catering needs, you will find us friendly and professional with a personal touch: nothing is too much trouble when making sure your event is perfect.

Our portable bar

It’s never been easier to have a bar at your event. We aren’t a portable bar in the ‘trailer on the back of van’ sense – we can offer so much more! Our portable bar is actually a bar that we can install virtually anywhere, fitting in perfectly with your surroundings: indoor, outdoor or marquee, we even have our own gazebo. We have over 20 years’ experience in the industry and are a member of the British Institute of Inn Keeping. We can cater for most budgets, and can provide relief staff.

We work with you beforehand to plan the perfect drinks list for your event, and if you are unsure what you want we will happily suggest a drinks menu for you! As you would expect our bar staff are fully trained, smartly dressed and professional.

We offer a number of options for having a bar at your event:

  1. A staffed bar with drinks, and each guest pays for their own drinks.
  2. A staffed bar with drinks, and the client pays the final tab.
  3. A staffed bar and the client sources the drinks.
  4. We provide the staff and drinks, and the client provides a bar area to serve the drinks from.


A barbecue is a great way of catering for your event. It’s fun and informal, encouraging a relaxed atmosphere among your guests, and of course with our professional staff you can guarantee that the food will be of the highest standard, cooked to perfection, with hassle-free service. We use the best equipment, including a catering barbecue and a mobile hot water sink for hand washing, and we are fully compliant with food hygiene regulations.

We offer a professional chef and barbecue hire service, which is completely bespoke for your event.

No-one knows your guests as well as you do, so we will work with you beforehand to create a personalised menu for your party that you can be sure your guests will enjoy. Of course, if you prefer, you can leave the work to us and choose from one of our ready designed menus!

We offer two options with our barbecue: either the client pays beforehand and then the food is served to the guests, or the guests can choose their meal and pay individually for it – like a top quality burger van but far more desirable!


We provide delicious bespoke buffets to perfectly complement your occasion. Each event is arranged individually to ensure we are fulfilling your specific requirements. We meet with you well in advance of your event, and we can happily advise on what types of food might be most suitable. We like to meet our clients face to face so we can get a real feel for the event, and ensure the best possible service.

We have 10 years’ experience in the catering industry, and a rating of 5 for food hygiene with all our staff qualified to a minimum standard of Level 2 Food Hygiene. The kitchen is designed specifically with food hygiene in mind.

We specialise in creating bespoke buffets for small to medium events. Hot buffets are available as an option: our style of catering is subtle and unpretentious rather than form over function, and of course we can cater for all dietary requirements. It’s important to us that you get just what you are looking for, even if you aren’t sure what that is to begin with! Our staff will sit down with you beforehand and create the perfect menu for your event, either based on one of our popular template menus or designed according to your vision.

If you would like to find out more about our bar and catering services, don't hesitate to contact us.

No event is too big or small, so whether you've got a wedding coming up, a special birthday or something else entirely, we can help to make your event even more memorable.
