The Crocker House Inn offers a variety of catering services: from small business retreats and gatherings focused primarily on meetings and productivity to weddings for up to 250 people. In addition to our intimate dining rooms, we regularly entertain on our front lawn for large tent parties. We have also catered hundreds of off premise events that range from intimate cocktail parties to dinner for 500.
Each event is unique and as such requires significant planning and a substantial amount of attention to details-at which we excel. We provide professional menu planning services that can be adapted to meet most budgets as well as a professional, courteous, and fun staff, perfectly cooked food and well conceived events that are virtually seemless. We do have a full liquor license and the concommitant liability insurance, and a staff fully prepared to serve any beverage.
While our forte is our ala carte dining experience at the Crocker House Inn, we have designed menus for on and off-premises that reflect our skill at ala minute food preparation. Regardless of the occasion, large events tend to fall into one of four styles: cocktail party, buffet, sit down dinner, station-buffet party. We have plenty of experience with each type of event, and can provide you with a full menu for each.
We also coordinate with any and all other service providers to guarantee that your event will flow smoothly.
The factors which have the most impact on costs are the following:
We have catered events (often weddings) on islands, in fields, on beaches, in private homes, on airstrips, on boats, on wharfes, and at schools and libraries. In addition to the outlined menus we have done a number of lobster feeds –from family picnics to those with raw bars and ice carvings.
