With over 170 years of catering for everyone from royalty to party planners, sumptuous corporate functions to intimate weddings, Searcys, the official caterer at The View, is famed for making delicious, honest food for every occasion. Our ethos is quality-led, seasonal and unashamedly classic, inspired by the best of British cuisine and punctuated with a modern culinary flair. You can expect beetroot macaroon, Ragstone goats’ cheese canapes in spring, smoked ham hock, whipped Norbury Blue, pickled carrots in summer, and warming traditional venison, heritage carrots, mustard seed, salsify, coffee and botanical sauce for dinners in winter.
These are dishes and concepts that bring people together. They’re sometimes designed to be shared, always meant to be a conduit for conversation. In recent years, we’ve perceived a growing desire for something healthier than the usual sandwiches and biscuits laid out for corporate functions, and have worked hard to create a menu of chia and acai bowls, superfood smoothies and homemade granola.
Using seasonal flavours, our chefs create fabulous and indulgent feasts for special occasions, as well as light and healthy options for those who wish. As always, we celebrate British seasonal ingredients as the star of the show.
Naturally, Searcys also take drinks very seriously. Our Champagne expertise is unrivalled, with dedicated Champagne bars across the country (including the original ‘Push for Champagne’ buttons at St Pancras) and we’re very proud to have our own private range of Searcys Selected Cuvée. We also champion international and British growers, often hosting dinners and events dedicated to the stunning wines and spirits produced in the UK and worldwide over recent years. We are keen supporters of these amazing partners, who demonstrate an obsessive attention to detail, and produce drink of an outstanding quality.
Cocktails and Mocktails
Our own Searcys mixologists have developed a range of events cocktails which work just as well for small indulgent gatherings with a few friends as they do for large and lavish events of up to 300. Highlights include the newly created English Mojito, and our signature Redcurrant Negroni, both inspired by the seasonal produce found across the British Isles.
