host catering was launched in June 2000, we started the business as an extension of the Award winning restaurant ‘host’ based in Bishop’s Stortford. As our client list grew we have evolved and expanded. Our event portfolio includes working with the BBC, The Beckhams, multiple school and charity balls, wedding receptions and many other events. We are known to dedicate an excellent provision of quality food and service with flare. We have since transformed the restaurant into a new concept ‘Burger Revolution’ but retained the outside catering division.
