Who we are

Tara Clist set up Bristol caterers Tara’s Table in 2010.  Tara is an award-winning chef, who has cooked at several of Bristol's top restaurants as well as Babington House in Somerset. Tara gained a place in the Good Food Guide 2009 while at Primrose Café in Bristol.

During her time in restaurants from 2002 - 2009, Tara did various ‘stages’ at London’s renowned Moro & River Café restaurants, Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and the one and only Chez Panisse in California.

Tara’s Table has been featured in The Bristol Evening Post, Food Magazine & Crumbs Magazine and Scores on the Doors have awarded a five-star rating for food hygiene.

Our food

Based in the green city of Bristol, we are caterers committed to using only seasonal, responsibly sourced produce. We will never use meat or poultry that is mass produced in a factory somewhere; our fish comes from a sustainable source, our eggs are free range and our fruit and vegetables are always in season.

Of course, we can’t buy everything British, so things like lemons and olive oil normally come from Italy, Spain or Portugal. But we will never buy air freighted goods that come to us out of season, like apples from New Zealand when home grown stocks have run out... Which is why our menus for events and private parties change with the seasons.
