Funeral Catering

Located less than half a mile from Bretby Crematorium and situated on the A511 east of Burton upon Trent, we are the ideal venue for a discreet and tasteful funeral reception.  We have been providing funeral catering here for 25 years and so both appreciate and understand that this is a very difficult time.  Our aim is to take the stress out of the catering for both you and your family.

The catering that we offer is on a buffet style basis and we can cater for parties both large and small. All of our freshly prepared buffets are supplied with unlimited teas and coffees and the room hire is free of charge for 2 hours.  Longer time can be agreed by prior arrangement.

We have four private function rooms, so depending on the size of your party, the room can be allocated accordingly.

We are proud to have been awarded 5 Stars under the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.   

We can also co-ordinate with your chosen Funeral Director to ensure all runs smoothly.

Please note that Assistance Dogs only are allowed into the venue.

If you would like to make an enquiry about a booking for a funeral reception, please contact us on 01283 223868.  Your call will be handled with the upmost tact and discretion.

Hi Melanie, Just to say thanks very much for the excellent service you provided for my dad's funeral party last Friday and for co-operating so fully with all of our extra requests.  The food and drinks were lovely as was the reception and the manner of all staff, nothing seemed too much trouble and they were all discreet yet attentive at the same time.  It certainly helped us all, and importantly Mum, to enjoy sharing memories with family and friends. Again many thanks, PW

Many, many heartfelt thanks for such a lovely "party" send off for my Mum.  Sincere gratitude to you all.  LT

Just a note to say thank you to you all at Keepers Cottage for looking after the larger than anticipated number of mourners who attend S funeral.  Everyone was made to feel most welcome and treated with sympathy and understanding, particulary my wife.  The reception could not have been nicer, given the circumstances.  Thank you all.  JA
