What is Stomping Grounds?
We are a catering company that works with local producers, small holdings and artisans in order to source our ingredients and produce. This allows us to offer great tasting, ethical and unique food.
We are known for our distinctive Turkish Style Street Food, which we sell across the UK. You can find us on Artisan Markets and foodie events, however, we are primarily a private function catering company; available for hire for any event.
What Makes Us Different?
As a chef, I have over the years become increasingly disillusioned with how few menus make the most of local seasonal produce and still do not offer meat that is produced under conditions of high welfare and to high-quality standards.
I want to feel proud of not only the food I serve but the ingredients I work with. We offer our customers food that is not only delicious and unique but made utilising seasonal produce that is either grown or bred with pride and care.
So our tag 'Community Driven Food' is more than just a buzz word. We source our ingredients from small, local producers and independent artisans to offer truly unique options and to help promote local businesses.
We believe in using only quality ingredients and making our food from scratch so it is fresh, healthy and packed with flavour!
Definition of a Stomping Ground:
"A place where someone regularly spends time; a favourite haunt."

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"We asked Stomping Grounds to cater for our 120 wedding guests, and were extremely delighted and impressed by their delicious food and professional service.
The menu was so fresh and plentiful and we had loads of great compliments from our guests about how tasty it all was. The owners Claire and Ryan were a pleasure to do business with, they were flexible about the menu and accommodated any changes we requested.
If we had it all again, we would definitely choose Stomping Grounds to cater for us. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special."
