Where do you deliver to?
We deliver across the local North Yorkshire area, including areas such as Selby, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Tadcaster, Thorpe Willoughby, Hambleton, Featherstone, Fairburn, Garforth, Castleford, Pontefract, Wakefield, Rothwell. We may travel further afield depending on the catering required.
Do you provide catering for those with allergies?
We do our best to cater for people with certain dietary requirements. All our buffets include vegetarian options, and we can also add vegan items.
Gluten-free platters are also available, but please be aware that these items will be made in a kitchen where gluten is stored and used. Laura Fox Catering has catered for many coeliac with no problems, but if someone’s intolerance to gluten is extremely high, it may be a risk.
For those with a nut allergy please note that many items used in the cooking or baking process state they ‘may contain traces of nuts’. The Laura Fox kitchen is not a nut-free site.
A full list of all allergens in our buffets is available, please email to ask for a copy. All our platters are labelled with allergens on delivery. Please get in touch if you have any queries.
Will you set up and clear away the food?
All our menu options will be delivered and set up at your desired venue then we’ll leave you to enjoy the food! The food will be provided in platters with a lid, which can be easily lifted to serve when you’re ready and then the buffet platters can be recycled by the venue or used to take leftovers home.
If you opt for serving staff, this will be charged at an hourly rate, per staff member. We will work with you to establish the amount of time staffing is required for, including set up and clearing away. This is charged at £16 per staff member, per hour. We usually advise to add at least an additional hour of service to the start of the event for set up and at the end of the event for washing up/clearing down.
I can’t see an item I’d like – can I add it?
If you can’t find something specific you’re looking for, just get in touch. We’ll do our best to make it for you. You can also add/swap items on menus if there’s something you’d prefer – there may be an additional cost for this.
Are all items homemade?
We pride ourselves on providing menus with delicious treats that are all made by us. Our cakes, sausage rolls, sandwiches etc are all made by us in our kitchen. There’s no shop-bought cake or sausage rolls here!
Do you have a minimum amount for orders?
Yes – our minimum order numbers are:
Parties/event catering – 15 people
Afternoon teas – 10 people
Business lunches – 10 people (small numbers can be delivered to Sherburn in Elmet only)
How much notice do you need for orders?
As much as possible please! As a small company we can’t guarantee to be able to produce last minute orders (although we will try our best!) Ideally, we need a minimum of 72 hours notice.
What is your cancellation policy?
We understand that changes may happen from time to time, but as we buy ingredients etc in advance we have to have a cancellation policy in place. All deposits paid for parties are non-refundable. For cancellations up to two days before the event we can offer 50% refund/cancellation. Any bookings cancelled on the day before or day of an event, the full amount will still be due.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
For all event orders (except business catering) we require a 25% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking to secure your order. The final amount will be due 14 days prior to the event. Payments will ideally be made via BACS transfer. For businesses, an invoice will be sent on the day of the order and payment is due within 30 days.
Do you have a food hygiene rating?
Yes – we were recently inspected by Selby District Council and scored a 5* hygiene rating. We are also fully insured and hold a Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene certificate.
