Good catering goes a long way when it comes to planning successful business events

When you book a business meeting, event or conference through Hand Picked Hotels you can be assured of a menu that is freshly prepared, local and seasonal. In addition we can tailor our catering to the event purpose and the requirements of those attending, whether you need nutritious and healthy, indulgent or traditional comfort food. 

And even if you book a series of events we rotate our menus to ensure you are not getting the same food options on set days of the week. Good food is an important contributor to a successful event and dining is at the very heart of the Hand Picked Hotels experience which is why all of our hotels have been awarded two or more AA rosettes for culinary excellence. 

What is more, we also conducted focus group research to find out what food people really want from business events. As a result there are three options. With our Classic package you can choose from either a hot and cold finger buffet, offering skewered kebabs, wraps, mini burgers and a selection of salads, or a networking lunch, including a selection of pies, moussaka, mini fish cakes and salads. Both come with a choice of desserts. 

Alternatively our Executive package allows your delegates to have an interactive and flexible experience with either a two-course plated lunch – great if you wish to upgrade to a private dining room, or a hot and cold deli option, with freshly cooked meat, fish and a vegetarian dish accompanied by a variety of breads, salads and fillings.
If you are looking for something less formal and you have limited time, our Essential package is spot on offering the choice of soup, an assortment of freshly baked continental breads and wraps with a variety of fillings as well as a fresh fruit platter.
With meeting rooms, flexible event areas and a custom designed private cinema – all equipped with high specification technology, there really is no better to place to hold your event than our dedicated business centre at the Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa in St Helier. Boasting one of the finest selections of restaurants on the island, head chef Nicolas Valmagna – inspired by his French heritage and love of fresh Jersey produce – is sure to wow your delegates. 

Whether you need to host a small executive meeting or a large company get-together, Bailbrook House just a few miles from the centre of Bath yet set in 20 acres of private grounds, is an ideal venue. As with all our hotels we can accommodate mid-morning or afternoon breaks with freshly brewed coffee, a wide selection of teas, chilled still, sparking or flavoured water and appetizers with a local twist to provide a taste of the area.

If you are looking for somewhere that is within easy reach of London, as well as Gatwick and Heathrow airports and the Channel Tunnel then Brandshatch Place Hotel & Spa is the perfect solution. Whether it is a board meeting, away day, major summit, team building exercise, incentive or staff training, our Kent-based venue can host up to 160 guests and offer five flexible meeting rooms as well as a wide selection of dining options.
