As Dorset caterers, we believe that wedding and event catering should be stress-free. Our tasty food is designed to impress and our personal service doubly so.
About Crab Apple Catering
Tasty food should not only be high quality but served in good quantity. Our catering services and menus can be easily fine-tuned to suit your specific needs.
A variety of catering services
We offer the highest quality catering and food service for almost any event. Be it a wedding breakfast, birthday BBQ, festival food truck, fully stocked mobile bar, or celebratory hog roast.
Your wedding food should be impressive and taste amazing. We provide you with as much support as you need for your wedding catering.
Mouth-watering food for celebrating any occasion. Our party catering service is highly flexible, no party is too big, too small, or too unusual!
Our fantastic food truck Hettie can be hired for any sort of event or party. With a wide range of culinary options, the choices really are endless.
Our Horsebox Bar or The Freestanding Bar can be ‘self-stocked’ by you or fully stocked with a vast variety of drinks by ourselves. Either way, we provide you with experienced and friendly bar staff.
Almost as important as the mouth-watering food itself are the staff serving and the catering logistics. Our friendly and experienced, professional staff are perfect for any event, party, wedding, festival, funeral, etc.
Whether it’s for a wedding, birthday party, or just because who doesn’t love a BBQ? We specialise in creating tasty gourmet BBQs in buffet format or delivered directly to your table on rustic sharing boards.

Perfect every time!

We won't ever be able to truly thank Crab Apple enough for everything they did for us to make our wedding so perfect. To echo other reviews, all of our guests have said that it was the best wedding food they have ever had...and not only that some have gone one step further and just said ever! Emma was on hand throughout the whole process designing menus together, having a fab tasting session and going completely above and beyond being 'just the caterers'. They stepped in at the last minute (less than 2 months from d-day) and saved our skins after our bar hire company unceremoniously cancelled on us! They pulled together booze for the whole day and Karl put on a fabulous bar service to the wee hours after all the amazing food. We were lucky enough to be catered for our post wedding celebration on the Sunday. We had a BBQ and chilli con carne in the evening and both were as sublime as the wedding breakfast. Haven't got a bad word to say and you'd be mad to use any other catering company for your big day. My parents are even trying to find excuses to have enough people round their house so that can 'get the caterers in'. Thank you so much Crab Apple!

Local produce; simple, innovative and delicious food; and excellent service. It is harder than you would think to find decent food in Dorset but these guys have got it cracked. Definitely book them. You won't be disappointed.

Crab Apple recently catered our wedding and I cannot express how amazing the food was and how unbelievably helpful Emma and Carl were, nothing was too much trouble in the lead up and on the day. The food was utterly delicious, we had such great feedback from all our guests. Thank you again for everything that you did to make our day so special
