Other services


Big Pan Paella offers all our clients a complimentary rental coordination service; we would be happy to give you a quotation for any additional rental needs (for example tables, chairs, linens, glassware etc).

Edible Extras.

Browse our menu’s and aside from delicious Paella and other big Pan main course dishes, you’ll find a delightful range of tantalising Canapes, Tapas and Desserts.

If you’d like anything that doesn’t appear on any of the menu’s, (for example something for young children or a very particular dietary requirement), please just ask. We are always happy to help.

Service to table.

The standard Big Pan offering is a ‘fun to be part of’ buffet whereby you and your guests queue for your meals at a nicely dressed buffet table and are served in person by the chef who cooked your meal.

However, if you’ve invited us to cook for your wedding or another more formal type of party where your guests are seated, we can gladly offer you a team of experienced and well presented waiting staff. The team will set up your tables, deliver meals to each guest, wait on them for drinks at arrival, during the meal and for toasts, and generally pamper you all to help make the day that extra bit special.

Drinks packages and bars.

Our Events manager is a personal license holder and we are very happy to apply on your behalf for a Temporary Events Notice (TEN) for your event if you wish. This enables us to legally sell alcohol at a pay bar which we will provide, set up and run for you – in some cases free of charge.

If your event is more formal, you are welcome to ask us about our all inclusive drinks package whereby for a fixed fee each your guests can have unlimited drinks for the duration of your event, including welcome drinks, wine with the meal, sparkling toast, circulating drinks waiters and a bar.

Music and entertainment.

We can provide you with a superb DJ who caters for every taste and says as little as possible (!), or if you prefer something more classical we can find you a totally authentic Spanish Flamenco troup.
We can even offer you a personally choreographed dance from a street dance group especially to mark your occasion, to a track of your choice.

We can provide a high calibre show band to play a wide range of musical styles from three to a ten members. http://www.blunterbrothers.co.uk/.

If you prefer we can hire a PA system for you to play your Ipod or for your own band to use, along with guitar and bass amps and a selection of party lights including a laser.
