Gareth Thomas, Director

Saffron Caterers and Events was the brain child of Gareth Thomas, a leading UK chef who trained at the prestigious Leith’s Cooking School before working for culinary luminaries Gary Rhodes and Jean-Christophe Novelli. In 2008, Thomas opened his award winning restaurant – the Rose & Crown – in Highgate.

Having seen a gap in the market for quality, bespoke catering, Gareth sold his restaurant and Saffron Caterers and Events was born.

With more than fifteen years’ experience in the catering industry, Thomas and his team work closely with clients to create something truly unique every time. Since its launch, Gareth has grown the business to become one of the most highly sought after caterers in London.
