Conferences and Venues


We know what an important part catering plays in the overall experience for any delegate or guest, and our aim is to ensure that we provide delightful and tasty menus to suit all tastes and dietary needs. Our dedicated conference and event catering team, Taste Manchester, can provide a range of healthy, freshly prepared hot and cold food and drinks to suit all occasions.

All our menus are designed to make maximum use of fresh and locally sourced seasonal ingredients with low fat content. Our tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar, orange and apple juice is Fairtrade. All of Taste Manchester's eggs and chicken are free range. All our fish appears on the Marine Conservation Society approved list, meaning that any fish deemed at most risk of extinction are not caught. To minimise the impact of our operation on the environment we operate a sustainable procurement policy which means we purchase locally produced items where possible and as much of our veg and salad is purchased through a local organic farming cooperative who work closely with us.

We only sell One Water, an ethical bottled water that donates all of its profits to fund PlayPump® water systems in Africa. We also recycle all the waste oil, cardboard, cans, paper, glass, batteries and plastics used on a daily basis. Our commitment to these initiatives is demonstrated through our Sustainable Food Policy.

Our menus focus on a nutritionally balanced use of lower fat meats such as chicken or turkey breast, fish, whole-grain products, fruits and vegetables.

Special dietary requests can be easily accommodated, just speak to our team.
