About Searcys

The Royal College of Surgeons of England has appointed Searcys as its official catering and hospitality partner. Searcys offers a taste of indulgence that feels sophisticated yet personal, with over 175 years refining hospitality with an appreciation of excellent service remaining a mainstay.

The historic British company started in 1847, and quickly gained a reputation as the go to events company for exceptional quality. In 1870, founder John Searcy was awarded a Royal Warrant as the official Confectioner and Wine Merchant to HRH the Prince of Wales.

Today, Searcys continues to bring quality hospitality to over thirty one-off venues across the country, ranging from a panoramic cocktail bar on the top floor of The Gherkin to a sumptuous Georgian restaurant in the Grade II-listed Pump Room at the Roman Baths. Aside from its fine dining restaurants and Champagne bars, Searcys hosts weddings, parties, corporate functions and hybrid virtual events.

The View Event Spaces

With versatility and attention to detail, Searcys allows the uniqueness of each venue to shine through. At The View, this could be a small and intimate dinner for colleagues in the 18th century Library, or a lavish banquet for 250 guests on the 6th floor. For more corporate affairs, Searcys can cater for conferences of up to 300 people throughout the building, preparing delicious and healthy food for meetings, celebrations, parties and receptions.
