Sorting out my Dads wake and because his local boozer was a proper pub it doesnt do food so I am going to have to buy some in. The one the funeral directors mention looks pretty basic fayre, anyone got any recommendations? It the Boldon area.

M&S do sandwich platters and all that sort of kit if that’s easier than messing on with caterers. Would just need someone to pick them up obviously and take them to the pub for ya

Morrisons do catering platters etc. They might even deliver it to the pub for you. Not sure if there's one nearby but they do a canny spread.
The scones are tremendous.

Sorry for your loss

Was wanting someone to do the legwork and sort the whole thing out rather than mess around myself pulling it together but it might be an option if all I can get are vol-au-vonts and egg mayo sarnies

Yeh when we did me mums last week the offerings my sis found were pretty meagre and bland from caterers so was just easier shipping a load in from m&s and at least you know it’ll be good kit from them.
Sorry about ya da mate, hope you get it all sorted

Sorry for your loss. Pretty sure the sandwich shop a few doors up from Blossom House (ex Yangtze River) do catering, also Whitburn Caterers.
 
Sorry to hear your loss mate. It's a tough thing to go through xx

This lady did my Dad's and the food was outstanding.

Loads of different savoury stuff and fresh fruit platters and it was £4.50 a head. Numerous people commented on how nice the food was. Really kind and friendly woman as well.

Has the funeral director not recommended anyone? We get the majority of our funeral outside catering direct from the local FD rather than the family themselves. If your struggling to find anyone then they will know the best people locally

The FD has buffet choices from a local company in its pack but its all a bit meh, I am just fishing for other options
The Funky Indian Catering for something different.
They still going? Thought it had shut up shop

Sure they only do catering these days. Restaurant is closed and they focus just on this.
