Welcome to the Owsley-Brown Catering Company

We are an outside catering company with a difference, based in and around Norfolk. We strive to provide the highest quality food at reasonable prices and take pride in making everything from scratch in our smallholding kitchen using only the best regional ingredients.

We love Norfolk and previously owned and ran Fishes in Burnham Market for eight years and can draw on a fantastic team of professional, friendly staff. Matthew and Caroline have many years experience in hospitality and know how fundamentally important it is to have a team of passionate people working hard to make your day or event special.
Please get in touch and we will design a menu to suit your needs. Be it a wedding, dinner party, birthday celebration, corporate event, wake or even shooting party.

You can trust us to make your event a uniquely memorable experience and also help to make it a stress free occasion.

We try to source all of our food locally and seasonally in order to bring you only the finest and freshest ingredients.

A little bit more...

Matthew and Caroline Owsley-Brown moved up to Norfolk in 2001 to own and run the well-known and loved seafood restaurant, Fishes in Burnham Market, which we sold in march 2009.

We have since bought a smallholding on which we grow vegetables and raise livestock. We have a commercial kitchen here at Conkers from which we operate our outside catering business, run cooking workshops and host the odd popup restaurant.

We are very passionate about fine, seasonal and locally sourced food. We are lucky - Norfolk is so rich in regional produce. Since being in East Anglia we have witnessed a sea-change in the quality of goods on offer. I hope we can show you that we are part of that new wave of good food.

Previously we worked for Rick Stein in Padstow in the mid 90’s and Matthew has over 25 years’ cooking experience in many top restaurants in London, including Mosimann’s The Belfry and the Fifth Floor at Harvey Nichols.

We are conveniently located near the A47 between Kings Lynn and Swaffham.

A word from some of our happy clients...

Anne & Ian Saturday 20th May 2017

Dear Caroline & Matthew - I just wanted to express my thanks for the fantastic food and service you provided for my party. So many of my guests took the time to say how much they enjoyed the food and both myself and Ian and John & Tian were hugely impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and/or hopefully using your services again at some point in the future. Apart from the great quality of the food we found you and your team all very friendly, relaxed and pleasant to deal with from booking right through to the party night itself.

Simon & Lorraine's big birthday celebration 3rd to 5th March 2017

Matthew, Caroline and their team at Owsley-Brown Catering provided my wife and me with outstanding catering and front of house services for a three day hospitality event in March 2017.

The professional and friendly service and support which we received from our initial planning meeting through to the completion of the event, far exceeded our expectations, which based upon earlier recommendations, we had already set at a high level!

From the translation of our outline thoughts into creative and imaginative themed menus, to the calm and organised preparation of copious amounts of delicious food, to the seamless and efficient service, the whole culinary experience was truly memorable.

What a fabulous team they are, and we would not hesitate to use their services again in the future. Together with our friends, we would happily recommend their services to any prospective customer(s).

VW camper Mexican Street Food

"No words can really describe how wonderful both you and Mathew made our evening, Chloe and I were totally thrilled with how the evening went and you and your team were such a big part of the whole evening.

The food was simply amazing, service amazing and what can I say about the camper van everyone just loved it. The office are still taking about the puddings."

Lucy & Olivier’s wedding Saturday 3rd September 2016

"That was a triumph! Thank you so much for the fantastic, efficient and delicious wedding catering.

Our other daughter who attends lots of weddings,said they had never eaten such good food, with such efficient and speedy service.

We were particularly impressed that all tables were served at same time and food was hot, given the large number of guests, many of whom mentioned both at the time and since, that your overseeing managerial skills were exceptional, organised and calm.

I was not really concentrating on this, but during the event, so many guests mentioned to me, your calm, organised efficiency.

Your waitresses were unfailingly polite, smiley and efficient. I was asked many times during the event for the name of the caterers.....hopefully you won't need to go to Paris!"
