About The Food Van

We have two totally Unique Super Cool Retro Vintage 1980's Mark 2 Ford Transit Vans that no-one else on the planet has!

From our Old Fashioned Fish and Chip Vans we serve Proper Fish and Chips like you would expect from your local Chip Shop, our Fish is Hand Battered just before frying, we do not use Pre-Battered Frozen Fish like some of our Competitors so whilst you will be paying a bit more we provide you with a better quality service from Vans that you won't see anywhere else.

The Food Van will ensure that you can enjoy a professional, hassle free friendly catering service for your event no matter how many people are there. We provide Catering to Events across the UK using our Retro Food Vans for Weddings, Private and Corporate Functions and travelling distance is not an issue for us so please do not be put off if we are located some distance from your event.

We are proud to be NCASS members (membership number 16840), with full Public and Product Insurances, Level 2 Food Safety Training, Risk Assessments covering Food Safety/H&S and Fire, and Vehicle Gas Certificate. The Hungry Plaice has a level 5 Food Rating and I hold DRB clearance, documentation for all the above can be provided on request.

Please contact us if you would like a quotation for your event we would be delighted to hear from you!

The right choice!

Georgina always replied promptly and informatively
They arrived early on the day which was great to reduce stress! The van looked great with a decorated hatch.
I received so many positive comments from my guests about the food. The portions were very generous so everyone had a good meal. If I needed a fish and chip van again I would contact the food van again without any hesitation. Thank you!

Great service, great food, thoroughly recommend

From the moment I got in touch with the Food Van the service I received was excellent; prompt reply to communication, made me feel confident that the food for our fundraising event would be just what we wanted and it was ... everyone loved the fish and chips. The service on the night was perfect and there was no rubbish to clear up ... they had done all this for us. I can't recommend the Food Van enough and have in fact forwarded their details to others already. Would definitely use them again. Many thanks,

Hungry Plaice - MUST HAVE

it was excellent, and exactly what i needed the day before my wedding. The team were exceptional in both service, timings, and the way they treated me. They were so kind, always responding to emails about me panicing for the big day, they were helpful with suggestions, great with food requests and everyone told me how tasty the food was.
It was brilliant, and i could not recommend having them highly enough. Really set the mode of the wedding. Thank you so much team Hungry Plaice, I'm so grateful.
