Based in the City of London, Chester Boyd has a long history of catering to venues within the Square Mile, as well as high-profile events at the Royal Palaces. It is the sole caterer for a number of livery halls, including Butchers’ Hall, Coopers’ Hall and Haberdashers’ Hall. Menus are distinctly British, combining classic recipes with modern technique in dishes based on local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. Canapés, buffets, bowl food and formal plated meals are all available. Chester Boyd’s catering service can be booked through It’s The Agency (see separate review) which offers a free venue-finding service.
