Smith’s Catering 2021
To comply with government guidelines, Smith’s has worked with leading consultants to become a certified ‘Covid Control’ company. New safety measures include social distancing, pod working, staff training, and health declarations, as well as frequent deep cleaning of kitchens and equipment.
Another key measure is the appointment of a ‘Covid Champion’ responsible for hourly checks, maintaining controls, and ensuring front-of-house distancing. We’ve also ensured our partner venues in London and Kent have similar certifications.
In addition to Smith’s corporate catering events, we’re pleased to announce some new additions to our traditional catering services. We are taking bookings for a maximum of 15 people for funerals and weddings in London.
In our efforts to meet government guidelines while continuing to serve clients across London, we’ve updated our catering policies. These new measures, extending to all aspects of our business, help to ensure the safety of us all: clients, staff, partners, and communities.
Contactless catering delivery is just one of the new measures in place. Our delivery drivers, trained in COVID control, can drop your catering orders in a convenient place of your choosing. This might be outside your door for collection, at reception, or somewhere else depending on the venue in question.
Catering delivery applies to many of our most popular menus, including:
Smith’s box lunches: nutritional, immune-boosting lunchtime meals in biodegradable packaging (with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options)
Sharing boards: a flexible and varied alternative to staffed fork buffets
Canapés: made to order, delivered chilled and ready to serve; choose from classic and contemporary menus, including new additions such as sushi and Thai
Drinks: all drinks supplied sale-or-return and wine rates include free glass hire
“always punctual, … always delicious and reasonably priced. Why use anyone else?! “ — Emma Saunders
We’re thrilled to announce the relaunch of our full-service wedding catering, including canapés menus, wedding breakfasts, BBQ catering, and more. Now taking bookings for 2021, we’ve also opened a second specialist kitchen serving private wedding venues in Kent and Surrey. This greatly extends our reach beyond our Central London office to cater for countryside weddings.
As per Smith’s hard-won reputation, we remain committed to fulfilling every order. We’ve already rescheduled a number of weddings postponed until September. And we’re aware of the need to be flexible, sympathetically meeting your fast-changing needs and arrangements.
Here’s a reminder of our menus:
Wedding breakfast: a range of starters, mains, and desserts with specialist teas and coffees
Wedding buffets: a choice of hot or cold fork buffets including all staff and equipment
Wedding canapés: a choice of six items from our extensive canapé menus, including hot, cold, and dessert canapés especially created for weddings
Wedding BBQs: sizzling classics from around the world along with some new creations; a choice of four mains and two desserts with all our salads included
Wedding afternoon tea: sandwiches, petit fours, and specialist teas; now with vegan alternatives
Last-minute orders are welcome, as long as we have them by noon three working days in advance. Deliveries run from Monday to Friday and everything you need can be provided. Call us today for a chat!
