Claret is a Dorset family catering business that has for more than ten years worked hard to build a reputation for honesty, trustworthiness, reliability and quality of service. Our catering business today is built almost entirely from returning customers across Dorset and word-of-mouth recommendations, which we are immensely grateful for.

If you choose to work with us, we can make you a promise of excellence and a stress-free occasion. We love nothing more than taking our customers’ visions and turning them into reality. Share your ideas with us and we will do everything possible to make it extraordinary for you and your guests.

We look forward to working with you soon.
