How to host a successful buffet with Hog Roast Bowland Bridge

Buffet catering is one of our most popular catering styles, since it is an incredibly versatile option. It works well for both formal and informal events, as well as events with any number of guests. Not only this but a buffet can be filled with as many different dishes as you choose, ensuring there is something for every guest to enjoy. Here are some of Hog Roast Bowland Bridge’s top tips for buffet style catering…

Stagger your buffet for large events

If you are providing a buffet for an event with many guests, it may be necessary to stagger your meal times to avoid creating a large queue. To stagger meal times, simply allocate your guests a slot and ensure ample time between them to allow the previous group to move through the buffet. This helps to prevent your guests from becoming impatient, as well as freeing up space in your venue. Not only this, but it is a great way to promote social distancing within your event to comply with current government guidelines.
