Catering Venues

Catering Venues Across Cheadle, Stockport, Manchester and the North West

At By Request, we are painfully aware that you might be trying to organise an event or party, you are looking for catering venues maybe for a birthday, an anniversary, a Christening, a wedding, a meeting, retirement or even a funeral.

You think you have found a nice venue, you mention you may be interested in providing food and you are told you have to have their catering and prices start at £20 per head, minimum of 50 for sandwiches and defrosted factory-made gateaux!! Not a great situation! But if you love the venue, it’s local and has parking so you ask can you “tweak” the menu? No, no alterations are possible, its menu A, B or C, final numbers 2 months in advance ALL paid upfront!

We at By Request think customers deserve better. So we don’t think the food is the be-all and end-all at a social gathering, but we think it’s important and that any customers get good food, good service and value for money. So with this in mind, we have started to put together some information about venues where they allow you to bring By Request in to do the catering rather than having to have what they want you to have at an over-inflated cost.

If you are a catering venue or know of catering venues and would like to be included, please get in touch.

The following venues are in no particular order, have no ties to By Request, the information is provided just as to assistance. If you find the venues are unhelpful again please let us know so we can remove them from the list.

Here is a quote from an email following a recent wedding catered for by us at Hargate Hall

“Hi, Carl,
We are now back home in Reading, Pete and myself are looking forward to a few days rest. 

Thank you once again, Carl, for a wonderful meal. Everyone loved it and couldn’t believe you were able to prepare so many meals in those apartments.
Above all, so many of the guests said how gorgeous the meal was especially the meat. well, all the ones who were sober enough to remember eating. As I mentioned when I saw you after,  I loved it, apart from the sticky toffee pudding which was a little too sweet for my liking,  but not to worry Pete managed to eat my portion, as usual.

We had a lovely day even the weather couldn’t spoil things. It was a special occasion for us to watch our little girl get married.
It was a very good choice using your team to cater to us. As promised it was all hot and your staff are excellent. Please extend a very deserved thank you to all the waitresses. Furthermore, we thought the staff were so efficient in serving everyone as quickly as possible ensuring every portion went out piping hot.

I would not hesitate to recommend you for catering at Hargate Hall.
Carl, you were quite right in telling me to leave it all to you as you had done this many times before. Kind regards C”
