About Us…

Outside Catering by J & J Catering

Julie Long and Jackie Barrow founded J&J Catering as a family run catering company in 1996…

The business thrived by producing homemade and wholesome food for weddings, private parties, masonic lodges and other events. One of their longest commitments was the catering at Great wood camp in Ranscombe (I still hold this contract today).

The success of the business grew on the premise of good honest food at reasonable prices and actually I take forward this manta today! 

I (Julie’s daughter, Charley) inherited the same passion for food and catering and grew up learning from my mum and aunt about what it took to deliver great customer satisfaction.

After school, I went to catering college for two years to learn more about the industry along with different skills and techniques. When I left college, I took of the reins of the J&J catering, under close watch of course! 

That was 9 years ago and I’ve never looked back!

J & J Catering value each customer and will bespoke our services to meet your requirements, budget and dreams. Whilst I can of course provide sample menus, I will always be able to make any changes you would like. If you would like me to create something completely different, do give me a call and we can discuss options and suitability. Rest assured, I will never overpromise, or agree to provide any menu which I don’t think I’d be able to deliver to 100% satisfaction.

We offer a professional, reliable bespoke outside catering service for clients in the Bridgwater and Taunton area. Finger or fork buffets, cold lunches and hot meals can all be provided.

We can cater for all events at a range of locations, whether it be in someone’s home, a village hall, marquee, townhall or field.

Should you be looking for an outside caterer for an event in Somerset, do give me a ring for a friendly, no-obligation chat to allow me to provide a bespoke quote for your event or function.
