“Please book the caterers” is not an unusual request. However, it’s an instruction given to those in PA jobs in London that can lead to a mad panic. How do you find the right caterers for a specific event? With more businesses bringing their employees back into the capital and business as usual being resumed, including corporate events, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best London caterers for London PAs to rely on.
PenniBlack are, without a doubt, pros at what they do and their food is simply incredible. From finger buffets to canapes and bespoke dining through to afternoon tea, street food, boxes, and BBQs, you can be sure that whatever you want, they can provide. And they offer so much more than food. Need chairs? The kitchen? Flowers? They can do it all. With their HQ in Battersea and fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles, as well as outstanding staff, you can be sure your corporate catering is in safe hands.
Smith’s Catering in London is another excellent caterer. Their corporate areas of speciality are BBQs, canapes, and Christmas events. They are passionate about what they do and they’ve worked with some huge corporate names at enormous events. They also supply daily lunches to a range of places across the capital.
We really love the sustainable approach at Eden Caterers, and you can expect delicious seasonal and locally-sourced food wherever possible. From breakfasts for those early meetings or sandwich lunches for when there’s no time to stop, to fine dining, boxes, buffets, and more, Eden Caterers should be able to help you out with any of your requests. With kitchens in Waterloo and a reputation leading back to 1993, they are nearby and reliable.
If your executive is looking for something exquisitely different that will make your corporate catering truly stand out from the crowd, then Bubble it is. Their food is luxurious, and also utterly remarkable and memorable. Their head chef is described as a visionary—and that’s a spot on description. Much of their food looks too good to eat, but we’re sure the diners will manage! From the Confit Seat Trout with Raw and Pickled Carrots and Bonito Butter, to the Yuzu and Matcha Cheesecake, you’ll be blown away.
Based in Ealing, Elite Catering offers their fabulous food across West London. This is fantastic catering, backed by excellent reviews. You’ll love their themed platters and their breakfast options are also sure to be a hit. There’s a huge range of menus to choose from, but you can also ask for a bespoke menu if you prefer.
PAs have to organise all sorts of different things in their roles, and caterers are just one of them. It can feel like it’s your responsibility to ensure the guests enjoy their food, so we hope with the above five tried and tested suggestions, you can feel more confident in your arrangements!
