As well as offering state of the art award-winning conference facilities, we also offer a wide range of functions- including plated dinners, sit down buffet dinners, gala dinners, awards ceremonies, themed dinners and Christmas parties.
The focus of the award-winning catering team at Oxford Saïd is on the quality and standard of the food offering, with locally sourced British produce, and sustainably sourced fish.
Oxford Saïd holds the Soil Association’s Food for Life Catering Mark. We were one of the first business schools to achieve this, which is something we are immensely proud of.
The catering team are fully equipped to deal with any allergen or dietary requirements and are consistently finding new and innovative ways to accommodate these requirements such as the ‘free from’ range and a fully inclusive Vegan day delegate rate (DDR) package. We believe food and drink are essential to the success of any function.
Our catering team offer a wide range of functions both indoor and outdoor, for example, the popular BBQ and High Tea menus.
