We are really pleased and honoured to be teaming up with Mount Pleasant Eco park near Porthtowan.  set within 42 acres of organic farmland on top of a hill overlooking the North Cornish coast, these guys put on amazing world music nights and eco-weddings.  We provide yummy food at their monthly music nights and are one of the preferred caterers for the amazing weddings they host there.

We are so excited to be going on the road with the wonderful Gogmagog theatre production, bringing our wonderful food to all of the 12 dates around Cornwall this Summer. Come and see us and join in the fun.   -  'Gogmagog is our most ambitious theatre project to date. It is our contemporary reworking of the ancient Cornish creation myth legend, which reveals a timeless story of conflict, survivors and asylum-seeking.Our experimental, experiential amphitheatre (the Planet Kernow Embassy) will tour iconic locations across Cornwall during the summer of 2014 with epic, immersive and participative theatrical storytelling at its heart…'      http://goldentree.org.uk/current-work/                           Tickets from - http://www.crbo.co.uk/                    

Do you have a special event, a birthday , a wedding? We can cater for you in any shape or size, at pretty much any venue! You can have a good old knees up at Irie or we can come to you with our fantastic vintage Citroen van.           Why not recreate Cafe Irie at your special occasion. We have been lucky enough to work with a whole host of corporate clients over the years including - DC shoes, Hurley, Quiksilver, Freepeople Toms shoes and many more.

Dont take our word for it... here is a recent 5 star review from a very happy customer -   ' We love Cafe Irie, and recently had them to cater our party.
They were fantastic! The food was truly delicious, the staff were so friendly & fun, and the organisation of the whole party was so calm, efficient & reliable that we had nothing at all to do or worry about & could enjoy our party as if we were guests. They also recommended a great band & a wonderful cake maker.
Would highly recommend them for any kind of party/wedding or other event.
Thank you Cafe Irie!'

When not in Cafe Irie, will probably be on some form of pushbike, or drinking tea.

Loves Surfing , outdoors & food. Constantly eating to maintain his 10st Cycle Weight!


Jon loves tending to his veggies and looking after his bees when not whistling tunes in Iries kitchen.

He also loves Cornwall's incredible coast and country and tries his hardest not to be indoors too much.
