Our Catering History

Oaktree Occasions was launched in 2012, but the story starts way before that. Jo and Caroline previously worked and learned their trade in a wide range of prestigious catering and hospitality roles in Devon and Cornwall. Immediately before setting up Oaktree Occasions they ran a successful restaurant together, but decided to take the plunge and launch a catering business following numerous requests to offer their services for a much wider range of events. Now after 7 years and along with our assistant Catherine we are knowledgeable on the most difficult of events and are ready to help you.

While here you can taste our food, view our kitchen, and see our wide range of equipment, cutlery, crockery, glassware and linen available to hire. To ensure your food is safely transported we have our own refrigerated vans, along with all relevant insurances.

Our sensational service

The Oaktree Team are dedicated to ensuring your day is smooth and stress-free. We will ensure every detail of the food and drink at your event is planned to perfection. We pride ourselves on being able to anticipate your needs before, during and after the event, providing you with a detailed itinerary of how the day will run.

We will do all we can to give you the benefit of our experience and help you get what’s right for your particular circumstances. We take the same approach with our pricing: thinking the whole job through and quoting for everything upfront rather than leaving any nasty surprises or extras for later.

Our Client Feedback

Dear Caroline, Jo and the rest of the lovely team at Oaktree Occasions, Just a little note to say thank you for all your hard work throughout our very special day! We really cannot thank you enough - the food was amazing Caroline (as always), and Jo, you were such a wonderful support to us both. We really do not know what we would have done without you during the lead up and of course on the big day itself!
