Who We Are

And what we care about

We founded Savills Catering with the idea that the heart of a good home is the kitchen. We specialise in using farm fresh ingredients and old fashioned techniques to create home cooked meals that are delicious,

healthy and oh so satisfying.

 

When catering for schools we know that if children eat well, they perform to their best. Mealtimes should be a pleasurable experience, with time spent sharing food with peers and teachers. Savills Catering constantly strive for excellence in meeting the School Food Standards, helping children develop healthy eating habits, ensuring they get the energy and nutrition they require.

In our catering operations at Retirement Villages, Sheltered Accomodation, Care Facilities and Industry Canteens our desire is to create

memorable meal experiences. A time to share a story with a friend or enjoy valuable time relaxing and unwinding. Our menus are tailored to suit your requirements, offering a wide selection to suit everyones tastes.
