Herefordshire is a historic English county in the West Midlands. It is a ceremonial county and a unitary non-metropolitan county and district, also named in legislation as the County of Herefordshire and governed by Herefordshire Council. It borders the English ceremonial counties of Shropshire to the north, Worcestershire to the east, Gloucestershire to the south-east, and the Welsh preserved counties of Gwent to the south-west and Powys to the west. The Welsh unitary county covering the part of Gwent next to Herefordshire is Monmouthshire.
Hereford is a cathedral city and is the county town; with a population of approximately 55,800 inhabitants it is also the largest settlement in the county. Herefordshire is one of the most rural and sparsely populated counties in England, with a population density of just 82/km² (212/sq mi). The land use is predominantly agricultural and the county is well known for its fruit and cider production, and for the Hereford cattle breed.

The simple cup, plate and bowl are among some of the items that we hire out most at Cotswold Catering and Event Hire. They’re not the most glamorous of items we stock but they’re an important part of many kinds of events and occasions.
We stock crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match different styles of occasions and different themes. Just as importantly, we have built up a large quantity of stock in availability to ensure we can meet demands for even the biggest events and wedding without a struggle. We do recommend that for bigger events that you order with plenty of notice to ensure it can be picked in time.
If washing up isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means all you have to do after your event is to scrape the crockery clean of any food items, put them back into the packing crates that they were delivered in and we will do the rest back at the warehouse while you relax.
The simple knife, fork and spoon are among the cheapest items we offer at Cotswold Catering and Event Hire, but they are an integral part of our business and the journey we have undertaken. With five different ranges of cutlery always in stock we have literally thousands of pieces of cutlery ready for hire.
Cutlery isn’t just about forks and spoons though. We offer speciality knives and pieces of cutlery equipment to make serving at your event or special occasion easier. Whether you’re cutting cheese, meat or even a wedding cake, we’ve got the knife you need for the job.
We have a great selection of table hire to suit a wide variety of events and special occasions. We can offer anything you might need from designer tables for events and conferences to traditional banqueting tables for weddings and functions.
Tables generally come in three types, based on how tall they are.
The tallest style of tables are called poseur tables or cocktail tables. These tables that you might find at bars and at cocktail parties and are designed either for standing up around or sitting at on bar stools. Our selection of poseur tables come in a range of colours and styles.
The lowest style of tables are coffee tables. These are low tables which are used for placing cups of coffee (hence the name), magazines and the like on and are usually surrounded by sofas or couches. We have a range of coffee tables for any type of event.
