World-class hospitality

We pride ourselves on our catering services and culinary creativity is always on the menu! Our team of chefs is renowned for inspired menus and beautifully presented food. You'll be invited to a pre-event tasting and we'll work with you to refine every detail - you can even devise a menu that's unique to your event. On the day, Manchester Central's hospitality team deliver the highest standards efficiently, attentively and unobtrusively. Whether a business lunch for 40, a black tie dinner for 850 or a buffet for 4000 no other Manchester venue combines five-star skills with such high-volume capacity.

Event catering

Manchester Central is a highly versatile event space. Whatever your budget, we can cater for a range of events with a variety of menu packages. If you want something unique, our executive chef and his team can create a signature dish or a whole new menu exclusively for your event. 

Manchester Central's hospitality team work with each event organiser to develop the best catering package for visitors. Our packages include banqueting and canapés and our buffet menus range from finger buffets to full dining options. We can also offer exclusive support crew catering and retail options incorporating 'grab and go' items such as hot drinks, sandwiches, paninis and refreshments.

A selection of our most popular menus are available for download on this page.

Stand catering

Whether a speciality coffee machine and barista or a canapé and champagne reception, exhibitors can arrange stand catering direct with Manchester Central. We can deliver bottled water, hot drinks, essential refreshments and simple snacks. Or if exhibitors want to organise a drinks reception on their stand, we can help them to create a real sense of occasion.
