Outside Catering – it’s what By Request specialises in. We are not a cafe, restaurant or sandwich shop – this is all we do!

By Request has been providing first class, professional, outside catering for both corporate and private clients in Manchester, Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire and the wider North West for over 32 years. We provide outside catering for all sizes and types of functions, large or small, from silver service to self-service, six people or six hundred people – the choice is yours. Corporate events, weddings, christenings, funerals, private dinner parties, barbecues, buffets, children’s parties are what we do 52 weeks of the year. We at By Request work hard, so you don’t have to!  


Catering is possibly the second oldest profession! Functions have had food provided since the dawn of civilisation. Surprisingly historically its 1778 in Philadelphia that an event is formally catered for as a business. Our history is a little shorter.

We pride ourselves in being able to hand make all the choices on our menus. We only deal with top quality suppliers, who can deliver fresh ingredients daily. Therefore enabling us to provide you with first class catering. This is what makes us stand out from the rest of the caterers in the area.

We are able to provide all sorts of catering such as mobile catering – for outdoor events or at work places and businesses. We are often asked to provide wedding catering – we are usually hired independently of any venue. We cater for many private or domestic events. Come to think of it, it may be easier to mention the catering we DON’T do. UPTO now we haven’t done any shipboard catering, apart from picnic hampers on the Poynton Canal. We haven’t done any seat back catering on chartered airlines (but we have catered for events for holiday companies, airlines at their offices and airport operators themselves!! And up to now we haven’t gone into online food ordering as most of our customers want bespoke menus and dishes plus all our food is hand made fresh everyday so this makes such a service difficult.

Please take a look around our website.

We hope it will provide you with the  information you need to decide what sort of services you require.



If you have any queries at all please do not hesitate to contact us

on 0161 428 0833 or drop us an email. We are here to help.
