About The Gastropod

A funky bespoke mobile catering pod specialising in small weddings, festivals, corporate events and private parties. We can provide delicious street food from burgers, pulled pork and curries to vegetarian halloumi muffins, paneer masala curry, chillis to delicate scrumptious afternoon cream teas, tasty breakfasts and much much more.

We are self sufficient bringing our own gas supply, quiet generator where there is no electric power available and water. So as long as the ground is flat and firm with no verges we can pretty much stand anywhere and we have certainly been tested.

Typical Clients

Typically we attend family and music festivals, small intimate weddings either daytime or an evening add on, corporate events, sporting events and birthday parties.

Absolutely brilliant.

Eamonn and Pip are lovely and their food even lovelier! The gourmet burgers, veggie burgers all went and were delicious. The paella (which I had) was perfect and kept lovely and hot. Served in little boxes with a fork and so easy to eat standing up or sitting down. The food nd service were exemplary - thank you so much! Mother of the groom!

Thank you Jacqueline, ( the lovely mother of the groom!) We had a lovely evening serving you and your lovely guests. What a beautiful setting too. Such a shame we couldn’t showcase our pod,( due to the accident) but the food was still very popular especially the vegetarian dishes! Thank you again for inviting us, and being so kind and understanding. Many thanks Eamonn & Pip

Great food and Great Service

We booked Gastro Pod for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Garden Party. We booked six months in advance and throughout the whole process the communication has been great. On the day they were brilliant, the food was ready bang on time and everyone at the party said how great the food was, which really helped to make the day special. Thank you Pip and Eamonn you were fantastic. Definately recommend and hope to use you again in the future.

Fantastic food, service and professionalism.

Their communication prior to the event was really good, they arrived on the day exactly at the time agreed, fully self sufficient in power, water and waste.
Food quality was superb, this isn't an ordinary fast food van, completely spotless, prices were very good too, incredibly polite and professional.
We will definitely use them again, very highly recommended.
They catered for 250 people at a large cycling event, no stress at all, the feedback from the cyclists was really very positive, they also cater for vegetarians and also gluten free.

Amazing food and service

Seriously can't praise Gastropod enough! They kept in contact before the event, arrived early to be up and running when people arrived. The food they produced was gorgeous and we've had so many compliments from our members.

Will book again!

It was a pleasure to welcome Pip, Eamon & Jane to our school's showcase evening and charity world record attempt! The food was delicious, competitively priced and served with a smile. They efficiently set-up and dressed the Gastropod to suit the occasion. There were plenty of comments throughout the afternoon and evening on the quality of the hot food and homemade cakes. They accomodated our pre-orders and guests were pleased with the speed of the service. Thank you once again, we will be inviting them back!

Friendly service and great food

Eamon & Pip were extremely friendly and arrived promptly. Their menu was varied and everyone who ate thoroughly enjoyed the food with many going back for a second order. I hope that they can attend our future events.
