Our Story

About

How we got our start

We started our catering journeys when we left school but the self employed journey we embarked upon together started in 2014 when we left our respective jobs and moved to Lincolnshire to a derelict but utterly beautiful windmill where we undertook a complete renovation of the coach house next to the mill.

Although the mill stands without it’s cap it has been stabilised and repaired ready for the next generation of caretakers to bring it to life. We opened our Watts for Tea tea room in February 2016 and spent a wonderful 5 and a half years hosting tea parties (and breakfasts).

In August 2021 we decided to take our food business in a new direction, Watts for Tea was closed and Lenton Catering was born. Our beloved mill & coach house became our permanent home and we began producing our baked goods from our home kitchen. 

This website showcases our Luxury Cakes and Baked Goods which are available for local delivery within a 15 mile radius of our Bakery Studio.
