Catering at the Lancastrian

Holding your event at the Lancastrian offers you the flexibility to choose your own caterer. The venue does not have full kitchen facilities but there are many caterers that can provide catering for all types of events at the venue.

All we insist is that your chosen caterer is registered with a local council and has a food hygiene rating of 3 or above.

When you have chosen your caterer you can check the Food Standards Agency website to find out whether they are registered and what their food hygiene rating is.

Whilst we cannot recommend caterers, we can work with your chosen caterer to ensure your event runs smoothly.
