If you require catering between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday for up to 50 people, you can use our online booking system. You can order, amend and cancel your bookings using this system up to two working days before the event.

We can provide a range of options to suit your needs. Why not start that 9am meeting with coffee and danish pastries, serve mid-morning refreshments, take a break for lunch with a savoury platter and buffet, or round off an event with canapés and your choice of beverages? Take a look for yourself at our delivered catering menu.

If you require catering in the evening, at weekends or for more than 50 people, email us at internalcatering@kent.ac.uk or call the Conference Office (ext 8000) with details of your requirements and a member of the team will be happy to assist.
