Five Bridge Inn - Rehoboth, MA

While many folks wake up and drive to their same office space every day, the life of a caterer is such that every day we get to drive somewhere different, see beautiful sites and meet beautiful people.

This was the case on a gorgeous day this past month when we catered a 4th of July wedding at the Five Bridge Inn in Rehoboth, MA.  It was a beautiful ride from our commissary in Pawtucket via the country roads of Route 44 in Massachusetts to the 80-acre venue located in a nine hundred acre preserve!  Set back on a country road, it is such a remote location that it makes an absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding.

There is a Greek-style pergola in the back clearing and a wedding chapel on the front lawn, ideal for ceremonies and for photographs.  

The main tent on the property is just perfect for a wedding of any size.  We certainly appreciate the cook tent and the bar tent.  Having our own, covered, work space available helps our work-flow.  We are told that registered guests of the Inn will have access to the Inn bedrooms, bathrooms, and facilities. All guests of the event have access to the exterior bathroom facilities in a building located directly outside the tent area. Guest restrooms are full bathrooms, not portable toilets.  (nice)

We understand that the Five Bridge Inn is also available for other events such as company outings and corporate seminars.  The venue offers lots of parking.  There are literally no neighbors or businesses nearby - it really seems to be a perfect place for any kind of retreat. Their amenities include a tennis court, lap pool, hiking trails, yoga studio and so much more.


We truly enjoyed our catering time at the Five Bridge Inn.  We look forward to returning soon.

Tim Walker's Horseradish Cream Sauce

Our fans are always asking for B&M Catering’s front-man, Tim Walker, to share more of his favorite recipes.  In the past, Tim has let us publish his recipes for Basil Lemonade, Watermelon Salad, Quinoa Salad and other delicious foods.  

Last month, Tim whipped up a batch of his signature Horseradish Cream Sauce to accompany the beef tenderloin that was to be served at a beachside wedding. Many guests at the wedding loved the sauce so much, they begged for us to share the recipe. Tim loves to please our customers, so he agreed to share his recipe:

Tim Walker’s Horseradish Cream Sauce

1 cup sour cream

1/3 cup prepared horseradish (not horseradish sauce)

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon finely minced shallot

1 tablespoon finely minced fresh chives

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Heavy cream as needed

Salt and pepper to taste

Serve alongside roast beef, steak or filet.

Other uses for Horseradish Cream Sauce:

Mix it with mayonnaise to use on burgers with roasted red peppers. 

Add it to mashed potatoes for a nice zing.

Use it to bring out more flavor in your homemade macaroni and cheese.

You can use it as a base to coat chicken or fish before you bread & fry it, instead of eggs.

Use it as a sandwich spread.

Let us know if you end up trying Tim's recipe.  We will be creating a collection of B&M favorite recipes and would love to add your comments.
