About The Happy Fryer
Based in Southampton, we can come to your event in Hampshire.
The Happy Fryer has been established since 2011 as a husband and wife team, we have over 20 years of catering experience as one of us is a fully qualified chef. We have catered for many various events and have got good feed back from our customers with repeat bookings.
We cater for all types of events including weddings, parties, corporate days and office catering, in our bespoke made food van carrying the highest food safety rating awarded by our local authorities.
All our chips are freshly cut and cooked to order using Maris piper potatoes and cooked in British sustainable rapeseed oil which contains omegas 3, 6 and 9. Which helps to reduce cholesterol, we only use frozen at sea north Atlantic cod fillets (skinless and boneless), if you require any other type of fish please ask. Our sausages are jumbo and we can provide them battered or plain, all our batter is freshly made, for the vegetarians we can provide home made pea fritter.
Lovely people and excellent food - highly recomend
Remained cheerful throughout despite the awful weather significantly effecting footfall and making for a cold and wet experience for them. Every one of the visitors that bought fish and chips absolutely raved about the service the quality of the food and the taste - many saying "best fish and chips I've had in a long time". I will most certainly be give them my custom when I next see them at an event.
very cheerful and helpful

Delighted with the happy Fryer
Couldn’t recommend these highly enough. A lovely couple, great communication, delicious food. All of our guests commented about how good both the food and idea was. Perfect for a big party.
Excellent wedding caterers!
Thanks so much Dawn and co! The food was amazing - everyone said how brilliant it was! I personally ate so much I had to have my wedding dress loosened which I count as a successful meal! Lovely people, great service.

Amazing food, Amazing Customer Service
The Happy Fryer are amazing! We had them for our wedding and we couldn’t be more pleased that we had them there. They looked after us extremely well, what you see with them is what you get! Plus amazing value for money. All our guests loved your food! There is another thing they offer for free is to come and collect rubbish. They chased up on the events and always assured that they will be there for us. Many many thanks. Guy and Adele x
Really pleased we chose the Happy Fryer
As part of a theatre evening, we needed to serve a fish-and-chip supper to 50-60 people, three nights in a row.
Keith and Dawn were highly organised and very easy to work with. They did a recce in advance, to check the best place to park the van and to make sure everything would go smoothly. They offered vegetarian and vegan options, and happily accommodated one lady who needed a gluten-free meal.
Our audience members commented on the quality of the food, especially the chips. Starting the evening on such a positive note really helped make a success of our overall event. We will definitely be asking the Happy Fryer to support future shows.
A Tremendous Frying time, thank you!
From the moment Happy Fryer arrived at my Mum & Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary, their service was tremendous. The quality was fantastic and portion size was brilliant for a hungry crowd about to get their jiving shoes on! Very friendly & accomodating and would definitely recommend! Thank you Dawn & the team!
