As we have already said on our home page, By Request is a professional, bespoke, outside catering company and has been so for some 33 years now. Our staff are qualified and committed to providing handmade, fresh food every day.
Entertaining, even for those who are experienced is not only stressful but hard work.
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 thus 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.

Perfect buffet, HUGE selection. Highly recommend. Asked the last minute and served the best buffet we have received in a long time and we have company lunches weekly.
