How to order

Our website is self-service allowing you to place your order at any time of the day and night but do call for last minute orders. Please check our delivery page to see if there is a delivery charge. We believe in being transparent with our prices so ALL our food has been priced, ready for you to 'add to basket'. The only charge that may not be obvious will be for return of our flasks if you are ordering teas & coffees for your meeting otherwise. Please note that our prices are exclusive of VAT.

Ordering

You can register to use our easy online ordering service by clicking on the 'register' button on the top left. Once you've signed in, simply browse our selection of food, choose the quantity and click 'Add to Basket'. You can view your order at any time by clicking 'View Basket' and once you're done you simply hit the 'Checkout' button. You'll be taken to the 'Payments' screen to complete your order.

We prefer 2 working days notice as this enables us to get stock in. For Gluten-Free, we may need 3 working days notice but do call as we may already have everything we need. We will always do our best to fulfil a 'same day' order, but please give us a call first on 0208 748 7388 so we can confirm.

Payments

Our secure online system allows you to pay for all orders using a credit or debit card.

Some of our clients use us regularly and benefit from the ease of setting up an account with us. Rather than paying every time you place an order, we'll send you an invoice once a month. It's simple, straightforward, and easy for your accounts people to manage.

If you'd like to open an account with us, all we need are a couple of trade references from you and the completion of our accounts form. E-mail info@capitalcaterers.co.uk to enquire.

Once you've placed your order, we'll confirm it to you by e-mail or phone. You can then go back to your important work and we'll deliver your scrumptious food when you ask us to.

What quantities to order for your event?

Sometimes it can be difficult to know how much to order so here are some guidelines to help you. As a general rule, each platter will feed 4-5 people. Please feel free to call us if you are unsure how much you need to order.

Sandwich Platters

Our sandwich platter consist of 20 quarters and can serve 3-5 people. As a default, we will make the sandwiches using a mixture of regular white and brown bread. However each platter gives you the option of choosing other breads such as bagels, wraps, ciabatta, baguette and gluten-free.

Lunch & Salads

Our lunch and salad platters are made fresh to order. The chicken drumstick uses 2kg of chicken which is usually between 20-25 pieces. Our vegetable tortilla is large and can easily be cut into 12 good size pieces. Each salad platter will feed 4-5 people and will come with a disposable tong for serving.

Desserts & Canapés

These are bite-size pieces and will be 20 pieces per platter. Each platter should feed 4-5 people.

Teas & Coffees

We deliver hot water and tea bags for tea ensuring your tea isn't over-brewed. Our flasks will keep hot for 6-8 hours although at times, it keeps hot for much longer. Calculate 10 cups per flask. As we need to arrange to collect the flask, there is a £20 one off surcharge for each delivery. Included in the delivery will be disposable insulated cups, sugar and stirrers. There is an option to hire crockery if you would prefer ceramic cups and saucers.

Cutlery & Napkins

The hot drinks automatically come with cups and disposable salads tongs are sent with salads. We do also provide other disposables such as cutlery and napkins but these must be requested in the comments box at checkout. When you are requesting, please don't forgot to let us know how many people you are catering for otherwise 8 of each will be sent unless we have a number. There is no charge for this.
