We have a number of caterers who work at our venues, these include Food by Dish and Payne & Gunter. If you would like a speciality caterer, we also work with leading Indian caterer Payal, Tony Page and Kosher caterer Zeitlin & Co. For your convenience we include Food by Dish on our quotes, this menu is detailed below.

Merlin events are proud to present foodbydish; one of London’s leading award winning caterers who create parties and dinners in over 25 of London’s galleries and museums. The two teams work closely together to craft your perfect party.

Your Food

Our classic cocktail party menu includes 8 canapés per person for a 3 hour reception. We recommend you select 3 hot canapés and 3 cold canapés including fish, meat and vegetarian options. You can then choose 2 dessert canapes. In our experience 8 canapés, whilst ideal for a networking reception, are not a meal replacement. Enhancing your canapé choices with a selection of 3 bowls will overcome this challenge.

Your Drinks

An inclusive house wine, beer (Beck’s) and soft drinks (Coke, Diet Coke, lemonade, cranberry juice, orange juice, still and sparkling water) package is included as part of your party quote. This allows for you to budget pre-event and, on the evening, focus on your guests and not worry about consumption levels. You will find a number of enhancements below to add your own touch to the party.

Aires Andinos Sauvignon Blanc
The Mendoza region is Argentina’s most important wine growing region. Concentrated aromas of zesty grapefruit, pineapple and lime with hints of passion fruit and a crisp, dry finish

From the esteemed Veneto region of Italy arrives this dry white which boasts floral notes on the nose, supported on the palate by lemon fruit flavours and a delicate nuttiness
