Discover authentic charcoal barbecues


At Sussex Chef, we pride ourselves in cooking up the best barbecues in Sussex. Perfectly suited for family gatherings and important milestone celebrations, our charcoal barbecues make food look, smell and taste divine! We marinade all our meat two days before your event to ensure a truly rich, delicious, mouth-watering flavour. We can cater for small family parties of 20-30 people, up to large-scale events of 200 or more.

Barbecue catering is one of Sussex Chefs flagship services and one Ben is very passionate about. Ben says “the key to a great barbecue is to start with the very best ingredients you can lay your hands on and always cook them over charcoal for that authentic barbeque flavour. Be adventurous and bold with the flavours you’re using, while making sure there is something on the menu that everyone will like.” Barbeques are a great way to bring people together and serve food in a less formal but impressive way.

We have undoubtedly and unquestionably perfected our Barbecue catering across Sussex and the South East. Our barbecue catering provides a very relaxed catering experience that suits larger occasions and family gatherings for weddings, birthdays, house warmings, christenings, anniversaries, retirement party or simply just a get together with friends.

Barbeque F.A.Q’s

Do you only cater in Sussex?

No, we also tiptoe in to Surrey and Kent.

Do you cater for children?

Yes of course, we are a family company and we understand that if the parents won’t relax until they know that their children are being well looked after.

Do you cater for vegetarians?

Most certainly yes, all our food with the exception of bread is made in our kitchen in the heart of Sussex and we are happy to cater for all dietery requriments such as Vegeterian, Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher, Dairy Free and Halal.

Do you have your own gazebo?

No, we ask the venue to provide the set up. This is simply because if any technical issues occur with the gazebo, chefs will be hands full wih cooking and could end up being problematic health & safety-wise.

Can we change the menu?

All our menus have been cearfully tought out to be not only be well balanced but as practial as possible too! We think you’ll find a menu you’ll love just the way they are.

What if it rains?

Our BBQ’s are built to be able to still cook in very light rain, if your venue does not have adequate cooking facilities for the numbers attending your event then we do recommend that you ask for oven hire well in advance. It all depends on how strictly you want to stick to your timings.

Can you cater for dietary requirements?

In these modern times the list of dietary requirements is ever growing. At Sussex Chef we feel it is imperative that everyone at your party should be able to enjoy themselves and be able to eat and feel safe in the knowledge that their dietary needs are being catered for. So, if you or any of your guests require a Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Halal, Vegan or Kosher diet, or have any Allergies to be catered for the team at Sussex Chef are at your service.
