Bath Narrowboats is a long established boat hire business on the Kennet and Avon Canal based in the beautiful heritage city of Bath. We specialise in memorable day trips cruising the Kennet & Avon Canal from Bath to Bradford-on-Avon...
Chefs Victoria and Lionel Meaden have catered for thousands of happy customers since opening the Angelfish Restaurant many years ago.
Ever since travelling the world and enjoying many different cuisines, we were excited to open a fresh food restaurant by the Somerset Coal Canal next to the Kennet and Avon canal. Over the years it has been a pleasure cooking and serving fresh food and homemade cakes at the restaurant.
Due to demand from customers, we set up our outside catering company " Gourmet Delicious " to serve our customers who wanted our cuisine for their garden parties, barbecues, weddings, birthday parties and more.
Over the years, from our experience we have observed two types of customers.
We have the customer who would like us to cater for a small to large event and only do that.
For these, we can provide a selection of menus as follows :
Canapes - A selection of mouth watering sweet and savoury mini mouthfuls of tasty delights. These are ideal for parties, served as a starter or just to accompany cocktails or drinks.
Hot and cold buffets - We offer a selection of buffets at different prices for different budgets. These are ideal when a host wants to provide a large variety of different foods to impress without the trouble of asking guests what they would like to try. There is always something to delight everyone and they are very plentiful.
Buffet of Desserts - Always leave some room for these as a choice of desserts always impresses your guests and help to round off a successful party.
Barbecues. - We are famous for our barbecues, having been featured in the Daily Telegraph and hosted many weddings with these. These feature a selection of homemade burgers, sausages, pork kebabs, fresh fish and chicken with many different homemade salads.
Hog roasts - These are impressive and feed a lot of people due their size usually between 100 - 120 guests per pig. However, they are fantastic and taste beautiful with crispy crackling.
Luxury hampers - We have been preparing miniature versions of our choice buffets for various customers. For example, boaters who have hired the electric boats next to the Angelfish Restaurant and families and hen parties who have hired the dayboats down in Bath at Bath Narrowboats.

Our other type of customer requires more than just food. These are customers who are aware of our huge wealth of experience in the industry during the last 25 years and a more detailed wider ranging service. Our involvement with hundreds of events from small private parties to large scale weddings and celebrations has allowed us to gain an invaluable database of knowledge. This means we are often asked to provide / supply a marquee, cutlery, glasses, music, tables, chairs, carpets, sound systems, music, bands, dj's, linen and many other answers to questions. We don't know everything but we've seen plenty and can generally advise the good and the bad, the small and the large, the cheap and the expensive and help you hold a thoroughly entertaining party.
So if you need a Frank Sinatra tribute act or silver candelabra etc, just ask us ?
