Truck Story

The story of The Tin Canteen

Our Retro Rocket It was built as a food truck but before I bought it it was a sausage van. We had to change all sorts of equipment. I've always wanted to do crepes for some reason, who doesn't love a crepe? I saw bubble waffles at an event a couple of years ago and was blown away by them, they're incredible, delicious and really fun, I love making them and seeing people's faces when I hand it over. And I'm really, really fussy about milkshakes, I hate shakes made with milk and powder and it's hard to find places that make them with real ice cream, which is mad as it's really simple!

Make & Model

Retro Rocket . We chose that model of truck because It looks fab!


Crepes, bubble waffles and ice cream shakes.

Ideal Customer

Someone hungry! A sweet tooth is helpful but saying that our savoury crepes are fantastic, chock full of delicious fillings.

Self Supporting

Yes, we don't 'need' anything, although a 32 amp hookup is always very welcome to avoid generator noise.

Signature Dish

Our whole menu is 'The Tin Canteen', we don't really have a signature, but for the impact factor I love making the waffles.

Private Events

We cater for private events and charge £185 to attend any private function and food is an additional expense. It depends on the number of guests, but it's usually slightly less than £5 per head for food. I need a date, a location, a deposit and we're all yours :)
