From celebration dinners to picnic lunches - we can bring it all to you.

For guests who love food, or simply want to forget about cooking for a while, Barford's food suppliers use local, seasonal and organic produce where possible to create delicious and varied menus.

Whether you would like a special-occasion meal, a picnic hamper to take to the beach, a Cornish Cream tea or simply some of your meals delivered, Barford has played host to some of the finest chefs, restaurants and food suppliers in Cornwall. 

We have tried and tested many of the chefs listed below and they not only know the houses and the equipment and layout, they also know what will work best for you.
