Posh Nosh - About Us & Our Ethos

Posh Nosh relentlessly pursue excellence in all our food and drink and we are confident that we can create a menu that will inspire you and your guests.

With over 25 years experience in event catering Posh Nosh strives to produce excellence in both food and service. Our experienced team look forward to working with you to create your unique experience, we pride ourselves on our service and we are confident that we can make your event a success.

Our award winning kitchen brigade work tirelessly to produce high quality dishes with Devon's finest produce, working closely with local suppliers we utilise the fabulous ingredients Devon has to offer. We are lucky enough to be surrounded by superb farms and amazing coastline, so we are able to select from a vast array of local produce to use in the creation of our dishes.

We are a close knit, family orientated team. Many of us have worked together for years and we have Posh Nosh at the heart of everything we do.

Company Management

All of our management team are still very much involved in organising and coordinating events and weddings; it is what we do best and the reason we are still one of Devon’s premier wedding and event catering companies.

Julie Hall

Julie started Posh Nosh at her kitchen table in 1989, her passion and knowledge of food and local produce is still very much at core of what we do. As a pescatarian, Julie is the reason we have such a wide and varied fish, vegetarian and vegan selections. Julie is constantly researching and exploring new ideas in food, presentation and service.

James Hall

James (or Jim!) joined Julie early on at Posh Nosh, he is driven by the highest standards of service and has always strived to make sure that our staff have the knowledge and leadership to provide the very best we have to offer.

Event Management

Event Managers

We also have a team of event managers who have worked with us for many years, coming up through the ranks of waiting staff at Posh Nosh and have been fully trained in our ways of service and style.

All of our chefs have the ability and expertise to chef at any event, in any circumstances and with any menu. We work as a complete team to make sure that your food is served with taste, style and texture. They each have their individual expertise and experience which we fully utilise to create the very best dishes and menus.

Event Coordinator

Sophie White

Sophie first worked for Posh Nosh at 16 years old, waitressing for weddings and events before stepping up to run events herself as a Front of House manager. After going off for a few years to gain a degree in media makeup, Sophie returned to the business in an office based, coordination role. She will likely be the first person you speak to when you enquire, and she will give you all the information you need to build a package and costing for your special day. Sophie's past experience in running our events makes her the perfect person to help you plan your menu, running order and logistics. Sophie will put together a water-tight file for your individual event, ensuring whichever event manager runs it is aware of every detail, so your day goes off without a hitch!


Alan Adlem

Head Chef Alan is our all round culinary hero, who particularly specialises in Pastry and Desserts. Trained in the Royal Navy and with Michael Caine, Alan is relentless in his quest for perfection and very much enjoys event catering and all the challenges it brings.

Chris Sleight

Event Chef at HQ, Chris has travelled and worked in many European countries - we call him the Paella king! Chris is always willing to try out new dishes and supports head chef Alan as a wonderful second.


We must also mention our current Exeter College apprentice chef Tyler who has been with us since September 2019, and is now a very valued member of our team.
