Our in-house catering service can provide a range of catering options to meet your event requirements. Alternatively visitors can access our on-site café between 8am and 3pm to purchase a selection of hot and cold drinks and food.

Catering service

We can cater for your events, whether it be for breakfast, mid-morning break or lunch. Our caterers are always happy to discuss your requirements or talk you through our menu.

We use Flavia machines for hot drinks, and a seletion of tea and coffee capsules can be ordered to cater for your event. The capsules offer fresh ground coffee and real leaf teas.  The machines are easy to use and the capsule allows your breaks to be scheduled as often as you want them.

Event catering brochure

Our event catering brochure aims to capture the relevant information about your requirements.  To assit this we have created two forms to ensure our clients, both internal Tower Hamlets Council services and our clients who are not part of the local authority are only asked to provide us with information relevant to them.  The only difference between the forms is the information we require to internally recharge/invoice for your event.

Which form should I use?

I am an internal Tower Hamlets Council services

I am not a Tower Hamlets Council service

The café is based on the ground floor allowing easy access for our guests. The café theme is based on that of a Victorian tea room, with a hint of modern life!

Our café offers a variety of coffees made from our barista coffee machine and served by trained staff, along with a variety of other hot and cold drinks.

Hot and cold food is available to purchase, including, jacket potatoes, salad boxes, soups, paninis, sandwiches, wraps and baguettes. Food is made to order using a selection of fillings, including halal, vegetarian, fish and meat options.  We also offer a selection of pastries and muffins and a cake of the day. 

Our guest can log on to one of our visitor PCs to check emails or browse the internet whilst enjoying their food and beverages.

We also have a wonderful courtyard style garden for our visitors to enjoy.  You will regularly see people sat on one of our benches having their lunch or taking a coffee break while appreciating our little oasis.

Our café is open Monday to Friday during the school term.
