Food Hygiene Rating

We are a small and friendly family run business based in Luccombe on the Isle of Wight.

We started business over 30 years ago and pride ourselves in the fact that our ethos has always remained the same; great food and a great customer service! We originally grew through word of mouth and have always grown our business this way – up until now! (Knowing that technology has caught up with us)

We originally started in West London and Berkshire before falling in love with the Island and moving here full time in 2001. Since then we have had the pleasure of carrying out hundreds of Isle of Wight weddings and events as well as work with the St Marys Hospital and the Isle of Wight Council.

We are all conscious of our carbon footprint and the quality of our food these days and where possible we like to use Isle of Wight ingredients that haven’t travelled thousands of miles to get to us or been processed so we can’t recognise them anymore! We grow fruit and vegetables in our garden and will use as much of these as we can and we always use all our own herbs. Our eggs are always fresh and free range either from our garden or Barbara and John’s down the road! (If you want to see the chicken these came from we can show you!).

Our team is trained up to Level 2 in Food Safety with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and our kitchens have a five star hygiene rating.


Mandibles Catering can be as little or as much involved as you like with your special occasion. We know sometimes it’s a bit daunting to find florists, photographers and table decoration so we can help and recommend no matter what the occasion is.
