One of the things that we love about having your event at one of the banquet venues in London is the wide range of choice that you have when it comes to the style of banqueting venue. For example, you may decide to have a more traditional banquet in one of London’s Great Halls, or one of the historic Livery Halls, each with its own personality and character. Alternatively, you may decide to find a banqueting venue with a more contemporary, quirky or unusual feel to it. If this is what you have in mind then you can really get creative with the banqueting venues that London has to offer, ranging from captivating museums and galleries that feature wonderful displays and works of art, through to edgy urban blank canvas venues, that provide a very different feel and allow event organisers to be very creative with their events.
The easiest way to find a banqueting venue for your event in London, is to contact our events team using the enquiry form at the top of this page, or enquiring about one of the specific banquet venues on this page, which will allow our team to get a feel for what you are looking for and suggest other suitable and similar options for your event.
When it comes to finding a suitable banqueting venue, one of the most important things is to understand is that each venue is likely to have a different arrangement when it comes to catering( as well as other elements such as event production.)
Some banqueting venues will have in-house catering, which is fantastic when you want to make life easier for yourself and have a reliable smooth flowing event. As the caterers are in the house, this means that they are they work at the venue day in and day out and will have an excellent knowledge of the equipment available, the flow of the venue and will be in constant contact with the Venue Events team, which can keep things simple for events. As you do not have a choice of multiple caterers, it is important to choose a banqueting venue that has a good reputation for catering, as well as for the venue aesthetics.
Other banqueting venues in London will have an approved list of caterers (and other suppliers) for you to choose from for your banquet. London caterers who have managed to feature on the list of reputable banqueting venues tend to be of a high standard, as venues will usually undergo a fairly rigourous approval process before recommending catering companies to their own clients. If you are planning a banquet then this can be a little bit more time-consuming as you will need to contact the venue and then contact several catering companies to request information, describing all of the elements of your event at each turn. Our team at LOVE Events has worked with and requested proposals from practically every good London caterer and so based on your event requirements will be able to suggest the most suitable caterers for your event and get a great package agreed for you, without you having to phone every caterer in town.
Finally, dry hire banqueting venues, or venues that allow you to bring any caterer that you like (often these will need to be approved by the venue on a case-by-case basis). In this situation it is up to you to find the caterer that you think will do the job well. Online reviews and forums are usually a good way to do this, although it is a minefield and so it is advisable to get expert advice. As always, we are here to help!
