Taplins Hospitality is the company set up by Marc and Karen Taplin to share their skills and experience through a number catering services.

We have a simple philosophy based around a few basic principles:- To deliver great food, to deliver great service using the very best locally sourced ingredients.

This philosophy has served us very well and we continue to grow the business and deliver great food to more and more clients, however, please don’t take our word for it please find below what some of our customers have said about us:-


“Friday was my husbands birthday and this brought a slight dilemma. How could I make this night special without going to a restaurant for dinner? Our eldest has type 1 and ASD which means it’s nearly impossible for anyone to have him even for an hour or so.

I thought to contact a chef who could deliver a fine dining service in our own home and contacted Marc Taplin.  He helped develop a menu for us from the food we love.

I can honestly say the meal was superb, Marc brought everything he needed from a deep fat fryer to crockery ensuring the quality of presentation. The food was cooked and served straight away, I founded it fresher than a restaurant, and we could wait as long between courses as we wanted.

My husband was in shock at the surprise and could not believe I had thought of it. We had a high-end restaurant standard meal cooked in our own home and we could keep an eye on our little boy.

It was a truly wonderful and special evening, something we never thought we would be able to have again.”

“I just felt the need to put in writing how pleased we were with the service delivered by your company at our recent Fine Dining at Home evening. We have had amazing comments back from our guests. They all felt the whole experience was perfectly executed by your team and the food was as good as they had been served in Michelin starred restaurants. A high accolade indeed from well travelled guests! We will definitely be booking Taplins Hospitality for all our future events.

Many thanks again to you and your team”

“Taplin Catering have delivered Michelin star quality food over the past 5 years. With high standard menus which are all uniquely tailored to our needs.

Every meal has always been faultless with excellent service, presentation, taste, and high quality food. I would recommend Taplins Hospitality time and time again.  Small private dinner parties of 6 to our larger family Christmas meals of 20 – Taplins have never failed to deliver and have only ever given us excellence.”
