Hampshire is a county on the southern coast of England in the United Kingdom. The county town of Hampshire is Winchester, the former capital city of England. Hampshire is the most populous ceremonial county in the United Kingdom with almost half of the county's population living within the South Hampshire conurbation which includes the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth. Hampshire is notable for housing the birthplaces of the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force. It is bordered by Dorset to the west, Wiltshire to the north-west, Berkshire to the north, Surrey to the north-east, and West Sussex to the east. The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight.

Some of the products we deliver in Hampshire include:
We have a great selection of table hire to suit a wide variety of events and special occasions. We can offer anything you might need from designer tables for events and conferences to traditional banqueting tables for weddings and functions.
Tables generally come in three types, based on how tall they are.
The tallest style of tables are called poseur tables or cocktail tables. These tables that you might find at bars and at cocktail parties and are designed either for standing up around or sitting at on bar stools. Our selection of poseur tables come in a range of colours and styles.
The lowest style of tables are coffee tables. These are low tables which are used for placing cups of coffee (hence the name), magazines and the like on and are usually surrounded by sofas or couches. We have a range of coffee tables for any type of event.
In the middle are banqueting tables. These are a set size (30 inches) in height and are the standard size for dining tables. We have round, oval and rectangular tables which can help with any size or layout of room.
Whether it’s chafing dishes to keep food warm or double bottle coolers to keep beer cold, we’ve got you covered with our range of catering equipment hire. We have an extensive selection of ovens, fridges and cookers ready for use in a range of situations.
Some items, like our double door bottle coolers and display fridges are equally popular in an outdoor setting at events like festivals and fetes as they are for indoor events. These kinds of items are incredibly popular in the summer and availability can get stretched. In colder times there’s nothing better than a nice warm pie or pastry – and no better piece of equipment to make it than our turbofan ovens.
We stock appliances powered both by gas and electricity to give our customers maximum of choice. All appliances are inspected, cleaned and tested prior to delivery for peace of mind.
The cup, plate and bowl are among some of the simplest items that we hire out most at Solent Catering and Event Hire. They’re not the most exciting items we have in stock but they’re an important part of many kinds of events and occasions.
We have crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match differing styles of events and occasions. Just as importantly, we have a huge quantity of crockery available in stock to ensure that we can meet demands for even the biggest events and weddings without a struggle. That being said, we do recommend that for bigger events that orders are placed with plenty of notice to ensure that they can be picked in time to be delivered.
If washing up just isn’t your thing, you don’t need to worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means all you have to do once your event is over is to scrape the crockery clean of any food debris, put it back into the packing crates that it was delivered in and we will clean them back at our warehouse.
