Picnic hamper hire – Cumbria and beyond

For a luxury picnic hamper hire, our picnic menus are perfect for a more intimate occasion.  We can provide picnics at most locations for up to 30 people, depending on how accessible your location is.  We can provide the picnics to almost any location, so if you have a favourite area that is special to you, then we will try to provide your picnic there.  Examples include locations at the top of a hill, in the middle of the forest, and even in the middle of a lake.

To take advantage of our picnic hamper hire, please call and speak to us so that we can discuss all the logistics with you.  We will try to make this work at the location of your choice.

Choose 6 items from our standard menu below; for luxury items, these will incur a surcharge per basket.  The price includes a luxury picnic basket including porcelain plates, stainless steel cutlery, a cool bag with your food in, a picnic blanket, a bottle of water and water glasses.

For our picnic hamper hire, prices are charged per basket, and these are for a 6 item menu.  If you would like more items or less, you will be charged accordingly.  Our baskets are for 2 or 4 people.  For more people, multiple baskets will be used.

All our menus also come with assorted salad dressings and flavoured oils.

Food allergies:
If you or anyone in your party have any food allergies or intolerances, please let us know as soon as possible so that we adjust the ingredients if necessary.

Special dietary needs:
If there is anyone in your party that has a specific dietary need, (for example, diabetics, coeliac etc.) please let us know and we will make sure that there is an option available to them in your picnic hamper hire.  This may be in the form of a modified item off your menu choice, or a completely different dish.
