We're proud to deliver event hire to The Crown & Thistle. Some of the items we can deliver include:

Catering Equipment Hire to The Crown & Thistle

Our range of catering equipment hire has been created to help make your temporary kitchen or food service as easy and as cost effective as it can be.

Keeping food or plates warm while serving is a job for a hot cupboard, and our selection of mobile hot cupboards are perfect for the role. Easy to move, they come with plain top and bain marie top configurations along with optional heated gantries to ensure you get the setup you need. For buffets our chafing dishes are simple and easy to set up so that your guests can serve themselves. Our range of upright fridges and bottle coolers make keeping food, beer and wine cold a doddle in a variety of situations.

All our electrical equipment is cleaned, checked and PAT tested prior to dispatch for your peace of mind. PAT test confirmation can be found on the sticker attached to the plug.

Furniture Hire to The Crown & Thistle

Furniture hire is probably the last thing an event planner or host thinks of when looking at venues, but it’s an important consideration. While location and setting will play a huge part of where an event is to take place, many venues do not have storage space for the levels of furniture that an event might require.

We have built up a huge range of furniture hire for all kinds of events to fill this gap. From networking socials and panel events to family functions such as weddings, we’ve got what you need. We’ve selected our furniture ranges to offer optimum comfort to your guests without scrimping on strength or sturdiness so you can hire with confidence.

No Security Deposit required

You don’t need to worry about a damage deposit adding cost to your event hire order from Expo Hire Thames Valley. Instead, we run a free minor damage waiver scheme to cover minor damage or loss, so you don’t need to worry if you break the odd glass or plate. We do charge for excessive or negligent loss or damage at 10x the hire price. Please check our terms and conditions for full details.
