The Beginnings...  

The Chipping Norton Tea Set was born out of an unusual request for her 18th birthday from our director’s daughter. Having thought that a party was on the cards, no-one was more surprised than Tea Set founder Victoria, when her daughter requested a vintage afternoon tea party!

So, after scouring the local shops and farther afield, for pretty china, and also enlisting the help of a relative for the marquee, Victoria set about providing her first sumptuous feast for 65 guests, complete with flowers, bunting & balloons. Really keeping it in the family Victoria’s husband Stephen came up with the apt, “of the moment” name! And that, as they say, was that! The Tea Set - as it is fondly referred to - has gone from strength to strength, providing catering to many satisfied customers since it’s inception nearly two years ago, from weddings for over 100 to intimate hen parties for 8, it is the ideal way to celebrate, large or small.

We have graduated to a core staff of six who range in age from 16 to...well, a little older! We pride ourselves on our professional, yet friendly approach to serving the many guests at our varied events.

Wherever possible we try to use local, free range ingredients in all our cooking which pays dividends as our customers can tell the difference and appreciate our attention to detail.
