Delighted with the quality and variety of lunch provided by City Catering at a recent training course. This and the fact they are a not for profit organisation supporting our local community makes tCity Catering a total winner!

City Catering provided a buffet style lunch (sandwiches) for the large annual event we hold every year. The customer service prior to and after the event was fantastic and any minor issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Having a member of staff to serve and ensure the lunch period went smoothly was a godsend and would recommend for large events. We received great feedback from attendees regarding the high quality and variety of the sandwich selection.Claire Pritchard, Forum Co-ordinator - Southampton Parent Carer Forum More...

We hired them for a Health and Well-being event in our student accommodation. The staff was friendly and quick taking our order, they adapted to our budget and time requirements and the service was right on time!All students loved the food, as it had a great variety and we ended up having even more quantity than we expected!An absolute must if you want to organise a quality event. I don't even have a single negative comment about them. More...

Service and communication both before and after the event were brilliant! Both through email and phone calls I was kept informed of every detail every step of the way with very prompt replies on any questions I had.

I would not hesitate to recommend City Catering to anyone booking a working lunch. Chris and Tina took the trouble to come to our office to discuss our requirements and gave us some free samples before we had even placed our lunch order.Both the food and the customer service is excellent. We have two people food allergies, one gluten and one with a severe nut allergy and this was catered for. They use a wide range of different breads, wraps and fillings which were delicious as were the gluten free brownies and sausage rolls. The delivery man was also very smartly dressed. More...
