What We

The Red Olive began in 2001 when Charlie was catering for dinner parties and small weddings from the “comfort” of his own home. With a growing business and a growing family (3 blonde haired boys to be precise!) Charlie knew that things needed to change. Red Olive, now based in Derby has 5 full time members of staff, a professional kitchen and a fantastic tasting room.
Presenting interesting and tasty dishes there is no wonder that we are award winning! But, we are certainly not just a catering company. Offering expert service from your initial enquiry, event set up, on the day management and clear down at the end. We provide advice, guidance and a calming voice when reassurance is needed!

We know how stressful event planning can be, let us do the stressing whilst you sit back and relax knowing we have it under control.

What They

“Our day was perfect, everything we had imagined and unforgettable and in no uncertain amount is that down to you and all your wonderful team. The service, efforts, attention to detail and outstanding food!”

“There aren’t enough superlatives to fully justify how impressed each and every guest was, not just the beautiful food, but also the impeccable service.”

“In fact, it’s fair to say that Red Olive ran this wedding for us. The professionalism of your team and yourself was second to none. All our guests said the same, everyone loved the food. You went over and above the call of duty for us. What more can anyone ask for their special day? I cannot thank you enough. It was the best day of my life!”
