Social Pantry wins two catering contracts with City of London
Sustainable events caterer Social Pantry has announced two new exclusive venue partnerships with the City of London corporation.

From 1st September 2024, Social Pantry will deliver its ‘high impact yet socially and environmentally conscious catering’ at The Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey) and Mansion House. Social Pantry will be managing all aspects of the catering within the venues.

This includes internal cafés and eateries accessible only to members of the court, as well as official state functions that are regularly held at these London landmarks. Across both new venues, Social Pantry will be managing a total of 13 unique catering concepts, which founder Alex Head and the team will be leading with their sustainability-first approach. 

From its commitment to employ more prison leavers year on year, to utilising zero-waste initiatives, and creating menus that focus around nose-to-tail and root-to-flower dishes, Social Pantry strives to deliver ‘exceptional quality service’ and events at minimal social and environmental cost. Menus are seasonal and globally inspired yet locally sourced, working with suppliers that align with Social Pantry’s ethos.

Head said: “We are so excited to be adding The Old Bailey and Mansion House, two more City of London Corporation venues to our exclusive catering partnerships alongside Tower Bridge which we launched in the Spring.

“The team at Social Pantry are really looking forward to putting these iconic venues on the map for events as well as running the in-house catering at The Old Bailey. As an independent caterer we’re extremely proud to win this contract with the City of London Corporation and to bring our sustainable, ethical approach to the catering at these venues.”

Social Pantry currently works with over 70 venues across London and the UK including Tower Bridge, Somerset House, The National Gallery and The Royal Academy of Arts.
