Gather : to cause to come together; assemble | to draw (something or someone) closer to oneself
Feast : a plentiful supply of something enjoyable | to eat and drink sumptuously
Great food can take an event from good to totally unforgettable. At Gather & Feast we’re passionate about locally sourced, fresh and delicious food. We love nothing more than getting creative – designing completely bespoke menus tailored to you and your guests.
Our team is friendly, professional and well organised, with brilliant attention to detail. Since 2012 we've been growing our business; bringing colourful, tasty food to weddings and events across Essex and Suffolk - we'd love to talk to you about yours.
Whatever the occasion, Gather & Feast!

MEET THE TEAM
We’re a husband and wife team and while we each bring different skills to the table, we’re united by our passion for food, wine and the way a great meal brings people together.
Supremely organised and an expert planner and list-maker, Linda is the heart of Gather & Feast. She loves meeting new clients and devising creative, delicious menus that reflect their personalities and special food memories. Her personal favourites tend towards classic comfort food with a classy twist. Curling up with a bowl of something rich, warming and hearty; a Nigel Slater book and a glass clinking and fizzing with gin is her idea of a perfect evening.
Rob joined the business full time in 2016 as head chef and logistics manager. His energy and skill have revolutionised the Gather & Feast kitchen, and we’re going from strength to strength under his expert stewardship. He dreams of freshly grilled surf and turf eaten at the water’s edge, and will never say no to a dark pint of Guinness or a smoky single malt. Just don’t ask him to do the washing up!
Behind the scenes ...
We are supported by a brilliant team who all go the extra mile to ensure every function is as good as it possibly can be. Their unwavering attention to detail and consistent service with a smile is sometimes no mean feat when cooking for 150 people in a tent in a field! But, like us, they’re fuelled by their passion for good food and we’re hugely grateful to them. We love our staff, and so do our clients....
"Your staff were so incredibly friendly and gave brilliant service. You’re very lucky to have them!”
