If you’re serving food at your next event or occasion then you’re going to need plates of some description. We’ve worked hard to bring you the biggest range of plates in different sizes, shapes and colours.

What do I need to know about plates for hire

Plates come in lots of different shapes and sizes but there are some standards that you can use to plan your plate hire needs. The smallest size of circular plate we do is are six inches in diameter and are commonly used as side plates of bread plates. Eight inch plates are used for starters and desserts, while ten inch plates are used for main plates for meals. If your guests have big appetites you might choose to go for the 12 inch version instead.

Square plates are often used for meals, but care must be taken when deciding what to use. These are measured diagonally, so the size given is for corner to corner rather than side to side.

You can also choose if you want winged plates, which come with a raised area which is used for holding them, or straight plates.

Do plates for hire need to be cleaned before they are 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.
