Crockery Hire in Dorset

One of the most important elements of running any successful catering business is pulling off a successful event. And the key to pulling off a successful event, whether you’re a professional business or planning your wedding, is to work with suppliers you can trust to provide you with good equipment and materials.

Crockery represents the end-point of all your hard work and impressive crockery can really crown your event. Your clients may not see the oven or grill you used to make the food, but they will see the crockery you use – and without the crockery, they won’t get any food at all!

When choosing the right dinnerware, you want a product that will make an impression but also be practical. The good news is that it is possible to find practical dinnerware that is also very presentable, beautiful and elegant. The nature of the event will determine the type of crockery you need, as well as how much of it you need to hire. A wedding, for instance, may call for some Athena Hotelware or Churchill WhiteWare – and the guest list will determine the number you need.

Once you have what you need in mind, the next step is to find a supplier. If you’re looking for crockery hire in Dorset, Hospitality Event Hire is the one for you. With more than 20 years of experience in the hotel and catering industry, we know everything you need to cater the perfect event and we have it.

Our crockery catalogue provides all the information you need to make your choice on crockery to hire in Dorset. You simply need to select the type of dinnerware you need and place your order. All our brands are trusted and used by the professionals in the industry and meet the modern catering standards.

Contact us with your questions or if you need any assistance with your crockery order.

Cutlery Hire in Dorset

So you’ve got everything you need to open that new restaurant or set up that catering business in Dorset. The location is perfect, you have all the catering equipment you need and if you are opening a restaurant, you have the perfect décor in place. But what about the small stuff? Cutlery counts as small stuff doesn’t it?

The type of cutlery you need often depends on the food you serve, and it may not seem like it, but having the right kind of cutlery can mean the difference between happy customers or not.

Table Cutlery Hire in Dorset

When we think of cutlery, the regular knives, forks and spoons come to mind. But it is important to realise that these don’t make a complete cutlery set. There are different types of knives for different purposes and the same applies to spoons and forks. Understanding your client’s needs is the first step in understanding the particular type of cutlery pieces you’ll need.

Consider how many courses you’re having, as you’ll need separate cutlery for the starter, the main course, the dessert, and any other smaller courses in between. The menu will also have an impact on the cutlery required – you won’t get very far if you’re providing a knife and fork for a soup starter.

Service Cutlery Hire in Dorset

As well as cutlery for the table, you’ll need service cutlery to get the food from the kitchen to the table, whether you’re planning a buffet or table service. Service cutlery can include anything from salad tongs and serving dishes to carving knives and forks. And don’t forget – any event with a cake will require cake slices!

If you run a catering business, you need a supplier who makes it easy to find the different types of cutlery pieces that you need and is flexible enough to allow you room to choose something different. Hospitality Event Hire has a wide selection of cutlery to choose from and while our pieces exude the best in craftsmanship and elegance to fit right into your unique style, they are also practical. This means you will be able to find a steak knife when you need one, a luncheon knife if that’s what you need or a fish knife when the occasion calls for it.

Browse through our cutlery catalogue to choose the pieces you need. If you have a special request, you can contact us and we’ll be glad to help you find it.

Glassware Hire in Dorset

Whether you need an array of cocktail glasses in stock for an open bar at a wedding or you’re looking for some nice big wine glasses for your restaurant, glassware hire is an essential service for any event.

Our array of glassware to hire in Dorset is available in a range of shapes, sizes and colours, and are the perfect finishing touch to a table setting or bar. We also stock various serving glassware such as jugs and stylish drinks dispensers which offer a beautiful way to display soft drinks or even punch.

Furniture Hire in Dorset

Your long awaited event is coming up and you have everything you need at hand. You have the venue settled, the guest list checked and double-checked. Everyone on the guest list has sent in their RSVP and everything is perfect, all except for one thing; you just can’t settle on the right furniture to use. The type of furniture you choose depends on the type of event you are hosting or planning. Once you’ve settled on the general idea of the kind of furniture you need to hire, it’s time to go shopping!

Just like you would likely opt for durable furniture when purchasing, so too should this be a top priority when hiring. The last thing you want is for some of the furniture to be damaged during transportation to your venue or to break during the event. At Hospitality Event Hire, we take extra precaution to ensure that all the furniture in our catalogue is of the highest quality.

But it’s not just about durability, is it? You need furniture to hire that fits your theme, looks good, and is comfortable for your guests to use. If you’re having a sit down meal, the most important furniture to hire in Dorset are tables and chairs. Round tables, trestle tables, cross back chairs, Chiavari chairs – we have plenty for you to choose from to make your event a success.

Begin by browsing our catalogues of chairs to hire in Dorset and tables to hire in Dorset. But don’t forget about any other furniture you may need, such as poseur tables and stools, baby high chairs, a gazebo or marquee, sofas, or even that all-important dance floor!

Linen Hire in Dorset

You can dress your tables with flowers, crockery and glassware until the cows come home, but unless you’re going for a raw, rustic theme, then your tables can look unfinished without linen. This is where our linen hire services come in: we have a large array of table linen available for you to hire for your event in Dorset.

Table linen, including tablecloths and napkins, give you control over the look and theme of your event. But far from just being decorative items, your table linen is essential for the comfort and experience of your guests.

The best table linen to hire in Dorset for your event depends on the type of event and the type of tables you’re dressing. Round tables call for round tablecloths, and you may not want floor-length tablecloths for a more casual event.

We provide linen in a huge array of shapes, sizes, and colours. Check out our linen hire colour guide for some inspiration on how you can use coloured linen to enhance your table setting. You can also hire traditional white table linen, perfect for classic weddings or corporate events.

We understand that choosing the right linen for hire in Dorset can be a daunting task. Between the sizing, the drop you would like around the table and the desired finish, there is a lot to think about – which is why we are here to help. Contact our friendly team about your linen requirements and we will be happy to advise.
