Bowls

Our selection of bowls for hire has been designed to ensure that every potential dish can be catered for. Take a look through what we can deliver to your next occasion in Cheltenhan and Gloucester.

From soups to salads, and from rice to risottos, the humble bowl is a useful piece of crockery for any place setting. We have a wide range of bowls available which will meet almost any food ideas we can think of.

What kind of bowls for hire work in which settings

If you’re confused by which bowl works best, we can offer some guidance to help you. Our most basic design is the oatmeal bowl. This bowl is great for soups and desserts alike and matches our other white crockery in shade. The oatmeal bowl offers a shallower curve than our rice bowls, which tend to be used as the name suggests for rice served on the side of a main meal.

If you’re looking for a slightly different style we also have square and tear shaped bowls, while our lions head soup bowls offer a certain gravitas to a place setting. All of our bowls are listed with capacity so you can be certain that it will work with the food you plan to serve.

Do I need to clean bowl hire before it is collected?

We've been delivering crockery hire to customers in Gloucestershire and the surrounding area for years, and we've learned quite a bit about cleaning crockery in that time. Not only is it a chore that everyone hates, but it's actually the time when it's most likely to get broken while out on hire.

This is why we have made it compulsory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing we ask of our customers is that they scrape any food debris off plates, bowls etc and make sure there is no residual liquid before repacking crockery ready for collection.

How does delivery work with bowls for hire?

We check and clean each and every piece of bowl hire before packing them into crates with bubble wrap for safe delivery. We’ve got lots of experience in doing this sort of thing, so our bowls should reach you ready to be used. However, we always recommend ordering a little bit more than you need to prevent any unexpected damages from ruining your event.
