What We

The Red Olive began in 2001 when Charlie was catering for dinner parties and small weddings from the “comfort” of his own home. With a growing business and a growing family (3 blonde haired boys to be precise!) Charlie knew that things needed to change. Red Olive, now based in Derby has 5 full time members of staff, a professional kitchen and a fantastic tasting room.
By presenting interesting and tasty dishes at each event, there is no wonder that we are award winning! But, we are certainly not just a catering company. We offer expert service from your initial enquiry, event set up, on the day management and clear down at the end. We provide advice, guidance and a calming voice when reassurance is needed!

We know how stressful event planning can be; let us do the stressing whilst you sit back and relax, knowing we have it under control.

What They

“From start to finish the staff were so helpful, relaxed and entertaining, which is exactly what we wanted.”

The Draper Wedding, 2016

“And now to the food: It was amazing! Every mouthful was an absolute delight. I don’t know how you managed it when you’re working from what is essentially a tent!

The Turnell Wedding, 2016
“In fact, it’s fair to say that Red Olive ran this wedding for us. The professionalism of your team and yourself was second to none. All our guests said the same, everyone loved the food. You went over and above the call of duty for us. What more can anyone ask for their special day? I cannot thank you enough. It was the best day of my life!”
The Etherington Wedding, 2016
