From the exotic to the more familiar, Papaya brings a new flavour of catering to Newcastle and the North East. Our bespoke approach to catering ensures that our service is tailored to the requirements of each individual client.

From Mediterranean, Asian or Pacific to modern British styles, Chef Andy Snell and his team will prepare exciting, contemporary food for any occasion from corporate events to private parties.

While drawing on Andyʼs wide-ranging international experience, Papaya values its local identity. The quality of ingredients is always a priority and wherever possible are sourced locally - with many of the herbs, vegetables and fruit used in our kitchen coming from Andyʼs own garden in Northumberlandʼs Tyne Valley.
