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.

When it comes to entertaining customers, you’ll want to wow them without breaking the bank. We go the extra mile and what’s more, you’ll find we offer something a little different to tempt jaded palates.

We have all sorts of menus, ranging from cold finger food, to canapes, buffet spreads and hot food, so please take a moment to browse and if you are unsure what you need for your event, just give us a call to discuss.

All of our menus are seasonal, so there is plenty to choose from whatever the time of year, and whatever your occasion. If you have a theme in mind or you can’t find what you’re looking for, please ask – we love a challenge!

Private Chef

Give yourself a break with our Private Chef Service and let us bring the restaurant to you with your very own personal chef at home or at a venue of your choice.

We provide the chef to produce a restaurant quality meal for you and your guests, from your chosen menu, as well as waitress service to lay the table, serve and clear up – when your guests have left your kitchen will be left spotless. All you'll have to do is relax and enjoy yourselves.

We have seasonal dinner party menus for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – please take a look, or contact us to discuss your event, and we will devise a special menu just for you.

Prices are charged per head and vary depending on choice of menus. 

Pop-up restaurants & seasonal suppers

We occasionally host food pop-ups so keep your eyes peeled.  

Our next event is "Eat Christmas with us" on Thursday 7th December at the wonderful Spike Island Café in Bristol.

Previous pop-ups have included Taramasalata - a Greek Extravaganza on Fri 15th September 2017 also at Spike Island Café and the feedback was phenomenal.

We're planning a series of seasonal suppers for 2018 so if you'd like to know more, just contact us.

If you'd like to hold a pop-up restaurant or supper club of your own for just one night for your birthday, anniversary, Christmas party or just because..., we have loads of themes and ideas to choose from so do get in touch.
