Shepherd Shack Catering was born out of Chef Scott’s love for the Great Outdoors, bushcraft and you’ve guessed it, food! After 25 years delivering high end catering, running kitchens from Birmingham to Torquay, educating and catering nutritional meals for children over 52 schools across the South West and reaching the semi-finals of South West Chef of the Year twice… Scott decided to calm down and focus on delivering foods borne out of his passions. After all that, Shepherd Shack Catering was established in 2019.
Today, we are not the business we envisioned we’d be. Fine dining and events? Well, Covid 19 tore up the business plan, and today, after a year of adaptation, change, curveballs, and lack of support for new businesses… we are where we are today. We offer a range of artisan, handmade deli items, a local takeaway service (which rapidly became the village’s go-to Curry Night!), cater events and weddings AND, now, we’re really proud of this one, an outdoor fine dining experience.
The Woodland Kitchen based at Ashcombe Estate. Take a look at our ‘What we do’ page to find all that Shepherd Shack has to offer.
We wholly believe in presenting fresh food prepared to showcase its fullest flavour and pair flavours that compliment the seasons of the land. It’s hard not to be touched by the passion and care that Chef Scott gives to make sure you enjoy every last bite.
