Fork buffets

Hot fork buffets menu is the most popular choice for companies requiring hot meals but do not have any cooking facilities. Whether for staff lunches, entertaining clients or all day events such as seminars, they provide the perfect solution.

By adding a starter (from our fine dining menus) we can provide a three course meal with table service, if a more formal setting is required.

All fork buffets menus are prepared to order daily in our East London kitchens. Meals are delivered in special, insulated containers keeping the food above 72c for up to 6 hours. We supply the chaffing dishes for our trained staff to transfer the meals into and serve from.

Eating out?. Smith’s provide everything you need to enjoy a magnificent lunch on your own HQ.
