Tobacco Dock Food wins ‘Best Catering at a Venue’ at the National Venue Awards

Tobacco Dock’s in-house caterer and part of the Eventist Group, Tobacco Dock Food, are delighted to have been named ‘Best Catering at a Venue’ at the inaugural National Venue Awards held on Friday 11 May 2018.

Hosted by the Global Conference Network, the National Venue Awards recognise and celebrate the excellence and exceptional quality of venues across the UK.

Tobacco Dock Food was recognised for its creative and forward thinking approach to event catering, with an intrinsic ability to respond to the nations changing tastes and trends, as demonstrated by the two-day Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics summit held last year, which saw over 3,000 attendees enjoy an ethically sourced menu that was 100% vegan and 80% gluten-free.

Following a win at the 2017 London Venue Awards, Tobacco Dock Food continue to prove that they are industry leaders, providing world-class events and hospitality to clients from around the globe.

Feedback from the National Venue Awards Judging Panel 2018 included: “The menus illustrated are exceptionally creative across a wide range of tastes yet without descending into pastiche. Their ability to attract and delight highly demanding clients is well illustrated and the growth in sales is testimony that what is being delivered is consistently of a very high international standard.

“Tobacco Dock Food is fairly new on the scene, but the talents of the team together with the energy of an extraordinary venue has produced catering of the widest choice to an exceptional standard delivered with all the panache and style of a Hollywood blockbuster! Tobacco Dock Food is a worthy winner!”

Tim Stevens, Managing Director at Eventist Group says: “We are delighted to have won this coveted award and to be recognised as London’s leading caterer, yet again, by our industry peers. Tobacco Dock Food continues to push the boundaries with its innovative ideas and I’m hugely proud of every single member of staff for making every event a success, going above and beyond to deliver exceptional experiences from start to finish.

“For us to have triumphed over such established caterers firmly positions us as the trend setters and market leaders, driven by our creative concepts and exceptional service delivery.”

Tobacco Dock Food is the result of a partnership between Tobacco Dock as a venue and renowned caterer Tapenade, part of Eventist Group. Since the partnership began in September 2015, Tobacco Dock Food team has enjoyed continued success, catering for over 107,000 guests across 101 events.
