Good hearty food & excellent prices

Let us make your event extra special!

Starting from £5.50 per person, we can provide you and your guests with Preston’s finest cuisine (that statement is not up for debate – I asked my mum and she said so, so it must be true). We have been lucky enough to cater birthday parties, weddings, corporate parties and many more occasions. Not only do you get the authentic retro-style tram to bring a bit of class and finesse to your do, but you also get some reet top-notch scran. We can even arrange for your guests to walk away with a goody-bag of traditional parched peas and our secret recipe to get them tasting tram-fresh from your own home.

If you’d be interested in having The Hot Potato Tram make a starring appearance at your event, please get in touch. For more information about what we can provide on the day, please take a gander at our events menu here. If you think there’s something missing, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and we can chat about what we can do to make your day perfection.

Our Events Menu

Everything we have to make your event extra spud-cial.

Choose Your Spud Menu

Spud Fillings

  • Cheddar & Red Leicester Cheese
    Is there anything better than cheesy spuds? Probably not.
  • Baked Beans
    Beans, beans good for your heart, the more you eat the more you… well, you get it.
  • Tuna Mayonnaise
    A firm nation-favourite and filled with fishy goodness. But quick question, would this famous tuna/potato dynamic work with mash too? I need answers…
  • Chilli Con Carne
    Chilli Con Carne is actually Italian for “delicious chilly-day potato-filling”…It’s true! Ok, it’s not true – but it could be.
  • Coleslaw
    It’s creamy and crunchy and oh-so-scrumptious on top of a warm jacket spud. The ideal summer spud.
  • Butter or Garlic Butter
    Not planning on kissing anyone later? Then this garlic butter filling is for you! A twist on the classic butter & spud combo.
