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.

We provide a bespoke full event management service to ensure your party or 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.


“A massive thank you for Saturday. You, your fab staff, beautiful food, advise, service, delivery, collection and communication were off the scale brilliant. The staff arrived, took complete charge and made us feel we were in good hands.
Seamless, gorgeous evening. Couldn’t have done it without you.”


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. We are food lovers to the core – always on the hunt for new tastes and styles which we bring to our menus seasonally.

Our chefs aim is to use simple seasonal ingredients and pack them full of flavour.

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!


In 2020 we launched The Pantry –  delicious food delivered to your door, ready to eat! Whether it be delivery canapés, colourful salads or warming pies.
