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.

Crab Apple provided the catering for our wedding in September 2022. They made the process so easy from start to finish. The food was excellent, both the meat and veggie platters looked beautiful and tasted amazing! The team made sure everyone was topped up with water and wine. All staff were lovely and proactive! Would highly recommend this team for any kind of event!

They catered for our wedding, both a daytime meal, evening buffet and a breakfast for the morning after. In short, everything was perfect. Food was delicious, servings were generous and all the staff worked diligently to make the event feel as special as possible. Wholly recommended.
