Catering & Events

There is no easier, tastier way to have a party than to have The Cookhouse cater it. We've done parties for ten to three thousand and everything in between.

Think of this: You won't have to shop. You won't have to cook. You won't have to clean up. And, it probably won't cost much more than if you did it yourself. And, those pricey fancy caterers: forget about them! And, the food will be so good! So, have a drink and enjoy your party.
