A creative catering company

A few words about us

Founded in 1986, Smith’s Catering is one of London’s leading catering companies for corporate clients, event production agencies, and private weddings and parties. We started life in Smithfield but soon outgrew those premises, upgrading to custom-built kitchens in Whitechapel in 2008.

Since then, we’ve expanded our reach considerably. Wanting to be closer to the heart of the capital, we opened an office in Shoreditch in 2020. This allowed us to better serve clients throughout the City, as well as to extend our services to new clients in London’s vibrant tech start-up district.

But we’re not just catering for business. As part of our expansion, we opened a state-of-the-art new kitchen off the M25 in Kent. This strategic location is an ideal base for catering weddings, private parties, and corporate events throughout Kent, Surrey, and Greater London.

It’s also our base for developing new menus, from creative new canapés to gastro-experiments.

As ever, our catering ethos is simple: reliably delivering first-rate food and service while broadening our culinary horizons. Using fresh seasonal produce from certified British suppliers (the more local the better), we make all our menus from scratch. And we’re fully equipped to meet all special dietary requirements—from gluten-free and vegan to halal.

We love preparing a variety of menu styles including canapés, breakfast, luncheons, buffet food and afternoon teas. Seasonal menus include BBQs, Christmas menus, Christmas canapés, Holloween canapes, St. Patrick’s Day and more.

Everything is freshly made to order and we are more than capable of catering to any specific dietary requirements such as vegan catering or any other you may have.

How we work

For over 30 years Smith’s Catering has been providing first-class catering services in London.

The central location of our kitchen in East London enables us to serve clients daily across the City, West End, Docklands and all London postcodes.

As one of the leading catering companies in London, we welcome prospective clients to visit our kitchens, see the environment in which your food is prepared and stored, meet our team and taste our food.

Our staff are top professionals, many of whom have been working with us for more than five years. Our proximity to central London means menus prepared with fresh produce from Billingsgate, Smithfield, and Spitalfields markets.

Our clients enjoy the many advantages of Smith’s Catering service, such as credit accounts, beverages supplied ‘sale or return’, free wine glass hire, pre-chilled wines and beers, and efficient delivery service.
