About The French Revolution

Our vans will cater for your party, wedding, launch, with style, dazzling skill, warmth, and above all, sweet crêpes & savoury galettes that receive the highest praise every time we hit the road.

We’re a sanctuary of simple, carefully made food. We use organic and free-range produce where possible. Our galettes are wheat & gluten free; our crêpes pure indulgence.

Choose from our simple or more elaborate menu, or we can design a menu together. The food is the reason we're there - but our beautiful and quirky vans will warm your heart!

Typical Clients

We will cater for your party, wedding, launch, or promotional event. Our two vans give us good availability, flexibility (you can choose side or rear serving according to the space available to you). From two hour parties, to all weekend events, we can cater for your exact needs.

Would certainly recommend for small events.

Arnold was a pleasure to work with. Despite being left short staffed on the night he was set up in time and dealt with crowds well. We very much enjoyed working with him and will certainly consider the French Revolution for future events. Thanks again.

Thanks, Kieran. It was good to be among the very welcoming people of Littlehampton; and finding myself a one man team on the day, good to be reminded that I can double my speed when required. Best, Arnold

Great service and even more amazing crepes!

Arnold and his colleague provided a great service to our staff and were a pleasure to do business with. There was a couple of hiccups on the day that could not have been helped, but Arnold continued to remain positive and delivered a fabulous service with amazing tasting Crepes to our staff. I would highly recommend The French Revolution Oui! creperie van to anyone and will definitely be using their services again in the future! Thank you!!!

Thanks, Rebecca, we really enjoyed it too! Van has just been delivered to the mechanic, to pin down the electrics glitch! So thankful that the glitch showed up within easy pushing distance, and many thanks to your team!

Need to be tasted to be believed!

Arnold and co. provided us a great service. With a good range of vegan and vegetarian options as well as wheat free and gluten free varieties there was something for everyone.
The food proved very popular amongst our clientele, and having tried my first Breton Galette I can say that it has to be tasted to be believed! A new favourite!

Arnold now also holds the Preston Park Velodrome lap record for Crêpe

Truly Scrumptious !

Arnold made the whole experience of finding, tasting, booking so personal and easy and then delivered the most amazing food on the day exactly as promised. We were so happy and our guests were delighted with the quality of the food along with the quirky vintage french van that set a great atmosphere. Thank you so much Arnold good luck with the rest of the summer I will not hesitate to recommend the french revolution to anyone looking to hire caterers for their event.

Great company! Delicious food!

I booked Arnold and The French Revolution over a year before our event (wedding party). Since booking I have been looking forward to eating the galettes and crepes. I can wholeheartedly say, it was definitely worth the wait! I'm so glad we made this choice! So many of our guests have complimented us (I'm pretty sure all credit goes to The French Revolution!). A guest was annoyed that we had chosen pancakes for the event... he tried one and loved it! I don't think I can give a higher compliment than that!

The whole service was impeccable & stress free from the first email till they drove off at the end. Reasonably priced for high quality, freshly cooked food, also catered to food intolerance's. The van looks awesome.

Book them!

Excellent food under atrocious conditions

Arnold turned up at our Seaford Striders Mince Pie 10 mile race to provide his excellent gallettes and crepes under the most awful weather conditions we had experienced. Gales and horizontal sleet and rain. His delicious hot food was most welcome and provided that much needed boost to both runners and helpers alike !

Absolutely brilliant!

Arnold was so easy to work with from the communication beforehand to the delivery of crepes on the day. They were absolutely delicious and all the wedding guests loved the food and the beautiful van as well. Thank you so much and I would recommend this to anyone.
