Square, circular or oval; white, rimmed or coloured; we’ve got all the plates for hire you could need for your event ready to deliver throughout the United Kingdom.
If you’re serving food at your next event or occasion then you’re going to need plates of some description. We’ve worked hard to bring you the biggest range of plates in different sizes, shapes and colours.
Plates come in lots of different shapes and sizes but there are some standards that you can use to plan your plate hire needs. The smallest size of circular plate we do is are six inches in diameter and are commonly used as side plates of bread plates. Eight inch plates are used for starters and desserts, while ten inch plates are used for main plates for meals. If your guests have big appetites you might choose to go for the 12 inch version instead.
Square plates are often used for meals, but care must be taken when deciding what to use. These are measured diagonally, so the size given is for corner to corner rather than side to side.
You can also choose if you want winged plates, which come with a raised area which is used for holding them, or straight plates.
Cleaning crockery is not only a bothersome chore, but it is the main reason why any crockery gets broken while out on hire.
For this reason, we have made it compulsory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All we ask is that food debris is scraped off plates, bowls etc and all liquids are emptied out prior to repacking ready for collection.
