The perfect recipe: Incredible Food, Wine & Service

Taste is our identity

We understand that food is a key element of an amazing event. CH&CO is the caterer across all our venues and it’s an association we are incredibly proud of.

It’s not just the ingredients, it’s the recipe. We believe food should taste good and feel good. Our team of chefs are passionate about exquisite food. They work closely with leading nutritionist Amanda Ursell to revitalise the body and stimulate the senses, with beautiful nutritionally balanced recipes and menus that are visually stunning, with maximum taste and flavour. We create inventive, lively menus offering an extensive selection of vibrant and seasonal dishes using the finest ingredients.

Award winning executive chef Karen Poynter leads the team; Karen is known for her exceptional skills, impeccable standards and the ability to blend creativity and innovation with the precision that the events industry demands. Her dedication to her craft is second to none, Karen works closely with the Craft Guild of Chefs and the Worshipful Company of Cooks. Celebrated for her dedication and enthusiasm to mentoring and nurturing culinary talent within the team Karen continues to develop rising stars. The team consistently develop menus; from fine dining, cocktail receptions, afternoon tea, informal buffets, interactive dessert bars to morning breakfast, all reflect the latest culinary trends and capture the individuality of each venue in which we operate in.


Our team of skilled and experienced professionals bring tireless passion and superlative talent to our kitchens and venues. Across every aspect of our business from back of house to front, we are honoured to say that we work with the best, therefore can give our clients the best.


We take great precision creating our wine list so it compliments our menus perfectly. Matching the body of your wine with the level of intensity in the flavours of food will enhance your dining experience. We continue to seek out new suppliers, allowing us to source the best value wines from across the world. Our wines include a variety of wines from small, independent wineries, which we feel privileged to have found and eager to share. We are delighted to offer expert, professional advice on wine pairing and tastings.


We are proud to take a mindful approach to the food experiences we source, prepare and present. We are fully committed to achieving environmental and sustainable best practice.
