Chilli Bees Catering was brought to life by Ellie Short in 2008 from her mum’s kitchen and has since become South West London’s boutique caterer.

Our promise, is to make every dining experience we deliver, completely in tune to your dreams, tastes and desires and we will do everything in our power to deliver.

The Chilli Bees team are completely versatile and we have quickly become South West London’s go-to weekend dining experience in 2020 – delivering intensely delicious home comforts to your door.

We provide a bespoke full event management service to ensure your wedding is as special as it should be. Our chefs and event managers are the best and will closely work with you to design your event, celebration, boutique lunch or private party that mirrors your vision.



Simple ingredients, packed with flavour. Chilli Bees has been recognised for its impeccable attention to taste and detail by Country Life, Sheerluxe, Sunday Times and Harper’s Bazaar.

We provide the highest level of customer service, taking the stress away from organising and planning your event.

Inspired food served beautifully at the most creative venues across the capital – we’ll help deliver your dream event.

In 2020 we launched The Pantry – intensely delicious comfort food delivered to your door. Each weekend we transform the dining experience of South West Londoner’s with our evolving menu of seasonal classics.

We have built a loyal client database who consider us to be reliable, attentive, hardworking, trustworthy and professional. By combining these qualities with our delicious food – we have discovered a winning recipe!

Our chefs will only use the best ingredients within our dishes to ensure we deliver bold flavours. All of our ingredients are fresh, seasonal and locally sourced to create contemporary and delicious dishes. Our menus have been tried and tested to ensure they are seriously scrumptious and can be executed to perfection at tastings and events.

We are food lovers to the core – always on the hunt for new tastes and styles.
