With over 60 years of experience in event catering in the Suffolk and Essex area, our team will take care of every aspect to ensure you have exactly the day you want. We have a range of menus to suit every need.

We specialise in catering for weddings and events at fabulous venues throughout the region, including The Hangar at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall and Talbooth in Dedham. In addition, the company has catering partnerships with Hengrave Hall, Houchins and Colchester Town Hall and is the preferred catering supplier for some of the most prestigious venues across Suffolk and Essex including the Marmalade Ball, Tendring Hundred Show and the Colchester Oyster Feast to name a few.

Many of our outside events take place in ‘pop up’ venues and that could be your back garden, in the middle of a farm or on a village green! We bring the party to you and our team love a challenge, so please do get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

Minimum numbers

Our menu prices are based on a minimum number of 100 guests. If your expected numbers are less than 100 there will be an additional charge to cover our costs. 60-79 people is a flat fee of £1,000+VAT and 80-99 people is a flat fee of £500+VAT added to the final bill. Unfortunately, we are unable to cater for parties with less than 60 people.


At Milsom Catering all our parties are different – that’s what makes them so special to you and to us. All enquiries go to our experienced event team at Talbooth and they will tailor make a package just for you.
