What to choose?

From a Smörgåsbord of hot and cold foods to mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres served by our catering staff – our catering menu changes with the seasons.

We can also offer catering that fits a particular theme – our Cuban nights are particularly popular and ideal for catering to a wide range of tastes with lots of tasty vegan options as a part of the feast.

“I can still taste those Parmesan cups, Dil – and the prawns. And that cheese board was a dream. Thank you for making the evening such a success – the café was the perfect venue.”

Katherine Wildman, North Shields

We prepare all food for our external catering at our catering unit – alongside the food we make for the café – and assemble it just before your event starts, to ensure all the flavours sing.

“We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday at Tynemouth Sailing Club overlooking the mouth of the Tyne. Dil & the Bear was our first port of call for the outside catering and what a good call it was!”

How Dil and the Bear’s outside catering works

  1. Email us on dilandthebear@gmail.com
  2. We’ll ask for the date of your event, the type of event you’re catering and how many guests you’re inviting
  3. We’ll suggest some potential menus – which we can do via email or over a coffee at the café if you’re close
  4. We organise the level of service support you need ­– we can supply serving staff and bar staff if required and we’ll clean up all our catering supplies after your event
  5. Once we know what your event is going to look like, we’ll provide you with a catering cost

“We have definite foody tendencies and didn’t want any run of the mill offerings, nor did we want to push the boat out too much cost-wise as we were catering for over 80 people. Dil worked with us to produce a cost per person which would suit our budget but deliver a fabulous spread. We can heartily recommend Dil’s outside catering service, it was everything we wanted and more.  Just waiting for the next big bash so we can use her again!”
