Caterer RA Venues has secured the contract to provide hospitality and catering services at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire.
The new RA Venues contract, which begins in September and runs through to 2026, will see RA Venues provide full catering services for day visitors in the Garden Terrace Tea Room, as well as the Tudor stately home’s historic and modern Barns Conference and Banqueting Centre.
RA Venues will also cater the conferences and events within the estate. The carefully curated menus will feature seasonal ingredients from the Knebworth estate, grown within the vegetable and herb gardens and Knebworth’s own venison.
Event guests visiting the estate can expect to enjoy an array of salads. The menus will be predominantly plant-based with at least a third of the ingredients sourced locally.
The Hydration Station will offer a range of fresh juices designed to provide “a tasty and healthy alternative soft drink option”. Daytime guests visiting the Garden Terrace will be able to choose from a selection of seasonal gourmet deli sandwiches, heritage sourdough toasties, boxed salads, and hot snacks, as well as freshly-baked cakes and sweet treats.
The venue, which is near Stevenage, also plays host to weddings, special events and corporate events, with a number of different options for parties of different sizes.
