Terms and conditions

We aim to keep our prices low and service levels high. You can help us to do this by booking the catering for your event with as much prior notice as possible. This ensures we have sufficient time to order products and ensure staffing levels are correct.

Bookings should be made no less than two working days in advance (Saturdays and Sundays, Bank Holidays and University Closure Days are not classed as working days).

Catering bookings for Bank Holidays and University closure days require a minimum of 10 working days’ notice. Saturday and Sunday bookings require four days’ notice.

Weekend deliveries will incur a charge of £17.50 per delivery. Bookings made outside of the requested notice period will incur a late order charge of £20.00.

Amendments can be made up to two working days before a weekday event and four days before a weekend event. Cancellations and amendments must be made in writing to deliveredservice@lboro.ac.uk . Cancellation charges of 100% will be made for bookings cancelled less than one working day prior to the event.


While we endeavour to deliver and collect at your preferred times, operational necessities may make this difficult. Where a variation will be more than 20 minutes we will always try to contact you on the number you have provided.

Deliveries are left outside the room unless you request otherwise.

Please ensure a suitable table or surface is available for your requirements when ordering certain buffets – see notes attached to the buffet.
