Lunchtime. Our only respite from the paperwork, the phonecalls, the nerve-fraying meetings with shareholders. Yet according to The Telegraph, almost half of surveyed workers could not find the time to drag themselves away from their workstations.
We understand that businesses and their employees are under increasing pressure to deliver, squeezing as much into the working day as possible. But your workforce need not settle for supermarket sandwiches and meal deals at their desks. Nor should your clients and partners be subjected to thoroughly forgettable food halfway through a conference.
Impress your colleagues and clients alike with a proper lunch, prepared by proper chefs, and delivered straight to your office.
Our business lunches range from the tried and tested traditional staples – premium sandwiches and homemade smoked salmon flan; rich profiteroles and chocolate dipped strawberries – to more adventurous offerings.
Our cold fork buffet platters bring the freshest local produce from the farms and the fisheries directly to the executive quarter. Choose from sugar and cloved ham with mustard, or slices of beef sirloin, bred and raised in Northumberland and served with bearnaise sauce. The continental option is a fine example of delectable simplicity, while all of the fish in our seafood platter is sourced from the North Shields quayside, a stone’s throw from our Tyne Tunnel premises.
The finger food sharing platters are a far cry from the humdrum of the usual midday, midweek cuisine. There’s Spanish-styled chicken wings and pork ribs, complemented by black pudding fritters, prosciutto piccolinis and ham croquettes; or how about a taste of the south east, with aloo tikka, bhajis, samosas and pakoras?
Those with specific dietary requirements needn’t miss out on a hearty lunch, either. Our veggie platter is replete with crispy mushroom dippers, cheese and leek flans and our delicious mac and cheese. French appetisers are on the menu with the crudité platter, and alternative selections are available with our gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan buffets.
When you want to share that Friday feeling with your staff, order in freshly baked, piping hot pizzas. Or perhaps you’d rather treat them to dessert, choosing from a mouthwatering variety of homemade puddings, cakes and sweets.
All of this and so much more can not only be sent straight to your workplace; it can be ordered online within a matter of minutes. A selection of our menus are available for delivery or collection at a time that suits you.
