About Wivenhoe Kitchen
Hello, we are Bev and Julie and own Wivenhoe Kitchen, a new small business located at the Wivenhoe Business Centre in Brook Street.
As the name suggests, we are all about food. We will be making home cooked, seasonal, plant-based vegan food. We will be using ingredients sourced from local producers as much as possible. Our ultimate aim is to use recyclable, biodegradable or compostable containers for all of our food however this is proving a little challenging for food that needs to be reheated in the oven. If anyone has any suggestions for how we can source containers of this type, please do let us know. For now, the meals will be served in tinfoil trays (that can be recycled) but unfortunately the lids are not. We’re working on that!
We plan to offer a home delivery service to customers who live locally to Wivenhoe but hope to expand this service once we get up and running (and obviously depending on demand). If you’re not sure that we cover your area, please call us to find out.
Initially, we are only going to be open on Saturdays. If you would like to order food to either collect or to have delivered, please place your order by Thursday.
We are also able to cater for private functions so do call if you think this is something that you might be interested in.
The business will officially open its doors on Saturday 26th September at 09.00 and we will advertise the food that will be available the week before. We will be advertising the food in the following ways;
– right here on our website
@wivenhoekitchen – our Instagram page
On our Facebook page – just search for Wivenhoe Kitchen
Some people prefer not to use social media or the internet and if that is you, we will be displaying a poster of the food that we will be cooking in the window of the kitchen; the address is 6 Brook House, Brook Street, Wivenhoe CO7 9DP.
If you would like to order we ask that you send in your order by the Thursday so for example, this week by Thursday 10th September. In this way we will be able to cater specifically to demand and reduce waste. You can then either come down and meet us (we’d love to see you) or alternatively, we will deliver your order to your home.
Payment can be either via our website or in cash (as we’re still in the process of setting up a card reader system that will be mobile).
If you have any special dietary requirements (or requests), again, please call us, our number is 07592 671490 or send us an e mail at
We are really looking forward to cooking for you.
