About Crocus Paella

WHY CHOOSE US:

It's right in the name "Crocus Sativus", which means saffron. We use only the highest quality saffron as our secret ingredient, which makes our paellas extra special! But all our ingredients are high quality and locally sourced where possible or imported from Iberica Spanish Food, an award-winning importer of authentic and traditional Spanish products.

We cook everything from scratch and we are very selective with the ingredients that we use in our paellas because we want to be able to offer the best quality & taste.

We have been awarded with the Healthy Choice Award, by Brighton & Hove City Council, which certifies that we offer healthy food choices, based on healthy cooking methods and ingredients.

We only use free range chicken from local farms in Sussex.

All our paellas are gluten & nut free. If you or any of your guests have any particular allergies or special dietary requirements, we'll do our best to cater for them individually, so please let us know.

We serve our food in natural, high-quality biodegradable and compostable palm leaf plates and we provide wooden forks instead of plastic, as well as quality napkins - all included in the price. If you require alternative crockery options, we can suggest a catering equipment hire company and we’ll be happy to serve in your selected plates or your even own plates.

Our paella pans vary in size and can cater for a small group of 15 guests to very large parties of over 1000 guests.

We are proud members of NCASS, the Nationwide Caterers Association, following high standards and practices.

We are registered with our Local Authority Environmental Health Department and in all our inspections, we were awarded with a 5 star Hygiene Rating.

We have Public Liability Insurance and all our certificates can be provided upon request.

We take customer service very seriously. Our staff are trained in Food Hygiene and always serve with a big smile!

Typical Clients

We specialise in wedding and private event catering for corporate events, birthday parties and anniversaries.

Our paella pans vary in size and can cater for small to very large parties.

We are also trading at Sussex and Reading Universities and have a regular pitch at Street Dinner in Brighton.

We have been operating since 2013, having attended events and festivals such as Reading Festival, Paddle Round the Pier, Wings and Wheels festival, Brighton Pride, Brighton Marathon, Kemptown Carnival, Oxted Beer Festival and many more.

Highly Recommended

I highly recommend Crocus Paella. They have been brilliant. My client asked for a paella party and of course I did not want to disappoint. I came across Crocus Paella and from the off set they have been brilliant and a perfect supplier to work with so that I could give me client the perfect party. My client described the Paella as first class. I will definitely be using Crocus Paella again for any future events that I do.

Excellent service and quality of product

George introduced himself politely and calmly. His Team set up their gazebo efficiently and unobtrusively. Every guest I spoke to enjoyed the food very much, and the interaction between guest and Team member appeared to enhance the overall experience. Most importantly, everything was cleared away seamlessly. One observation: some overhanging shelter from the rain whilst waiting to be served would have been comforting. Thank you for the gift of paella ingredients and cooking dish.

Food worthy of the highest praise

The team at Crocus Paella are highly professional and offer a first class service.

From the very initial communication I felt confident that I'd made the right booking of food vendor. I instantly knew that our guests were in for an excellent experience (and that's what it is with the cooking all done fresh on site). Those huge dishes full of delicious paella really is a sight to behold.

I would highly recommend anyone to book Crocus Paella - your guests will thank you that you did...

Excellent Service, delicious food!

Jose catered for my 40th party and the paella was delicious! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian and chicken options and the tent looked great in my garden. The service was excellent, set up and tidied away very promptly. Would recommend!

Fantastic service, impressive set-up, full tums!

George and his crew were absolutely fabulous to work with. The paella was delicious (plus they offered take away boxes filled with the left overs for staff to take home!).
Couldn't recommend them enough.
