If you are holding a meeting and wish to provide catering for the attendees, you can order from our Delivered Catering menu.
Whether it’s a small informal buffet, or you need to order catering for a working lunch, we offer a wide range of food options and refreshments to suit your budget. Our dedicated Delivered Catering team would be happy to assist in suggesting a wide range of menu options, tailored to suit the client.
This is a delivered service, typically non-staffed, for venues at the University of Aberdeen. Catering and tableware are delivered in “kits”, with hot drinks supplied in thermo flasks. Our delivery team shall set up the catering, unless the meeting is ongoing at the time of the delivery or you have specifically requested that it be left at the door so as to not interrupt.
When ordering, please state your preferred delivery time. We shall endeavour to deliver your catering at the time requested, but it may set up within a window of 30 minutes prior depending on the delivery schedule in place. Please bear this in mind when specifying your delivery time.
If you wish to cater for a large groups, such as 50 or more guests, please provide as much notice as possible to ensure we can accommodate your request.
Disposable tableware is provided as standard, including cups for soft drinks, and napkins with food deliveries.
The delivery team will collect the used kit box once the meeting has finished. If you have several deliveries scheduled, please try to ensure the catering kit is ready and packed up for collection to ensure minimal disruption to your meeting; any items, such as cups, not returned to the catering station will not be collected until all guests have vacated the room.
We shall endeavour to collect all catering kits on the day of delivery, but in instances where meetings are ongoing or we are experiencing a high number of catering requests, collections shall be made the following day. Please ensure kits are left outside the room for collection, and not moved to another location.
We require 24 hours’ notice for all refreshments, snacks and cold drinks orders, with the cut-off being 10.00am on the deadline date. Orders received after this time may not be accepted.
Our staff can pour and top-up drinks, circulate the crowd to serve canapés or man the catering stations, depending on the catering ordered.
If you have a small meeting planned or have visiting academics or examiners, then our prepaid vouchers are ideal.
