BEST IN-HOUSE CATERER
The Grocers’ philosophy combines a commitment to excellence and meticulous attention to detail, so guests experience not only one of the finest events venues in the heart of the City of London, but the highest standards of food and service.
Being in-house with our catering offers an added dimension for smooth event planning. Our chefs are able to handpick produce from the finest suppliers with full traceability and provenance. The menus we provide are just suggestions of what we can produce from our kitchen.
Our butlers and silver service waiting staff are professionals in their trade, each with many years of experience. Whilst staffing remains our highest outgoing, levels have always remained at high ratios to ensure our the reputation in our service is unwavered. We also have separate waiting staff to butlers to guarantee drinks never run dry!
Client feedback always comments on how great the staff and the quality of the food is. The reputation built up, especially since Graham Pratt took over the kitchen as Head Chef is becoming the place in the City to hold fine dining events.
Marylebone Cricket Club
There are many things that make Lord’s the most famous cricket ground in the world. Having hosted cricket since 1814, the Ground is steeped in history. Many of cricket’s greatest moments have taken place at Lord’s.
However, whenever you ask international cricketers for their fond memories of Lord’s, something that very commonly gets a mention is the food. In June 2023, Australian legend Justin Langer told BBC’s Stumped podcast that the food at Lord’s was “so good”, referring to the Dining Room as being “like a seven-star restaurant.”
Lord’s has a very strong reputation in terms of catering, and it’s up to our in-house team to uphold that reputation by serving top quality food and drink at all of our matches and events.
Putting the cricket to one side, events are a key part of MCC’s operation with numerous spaces around the Ground and many events taking place each year. The catering team strives to ensure that the same renowned food and beverage service is provided to all guests who attend events at Lord’s.
