Grazing tables provide your guests with an assortment of hot or cold items from which they can fill a plate according to their own preferences. They’re a lighter and more versatile alternative to a buffet, giving your guests a chance to mingle and the freedom to return as many times as they like. As they provide the chance to arrange the food along with decorative elements, grazing tables can also be a stunning addition to your wedding decor.
All of our grazing tables are custom designed to suit each and every customer and event. Included in the prices is a skilled representative from Catering by Stuart Trower, to help serve, clean up, and assist your guests with the delectable treats on offer.
