Catering for all occasions

Our standards

Arens & Heriot caterers provide the standards of service and attention to detail that you would expect from a family concern with over a century of experience in the catering profession.

Our website reflects the exciting changes in contemporary cuisine, presenting a selection of tried and trusted menus which range from elegant and classic dishes, to hearty traditional fare, to more adventurous and colourful creations inspired by the recent innovations in cookery.

If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, or have special needs, from Vegetarian to Vegan, from Oriental to Asian, we can adapt our menus to suit, or we will even provide a complete custom menu from our ‘Design it Yourself’ selection.

Societies, Clubs & Organisations

At Arens & Heriot we provide catering to many societies and professional organisations. And we always try to add that bit extra.

We operate under the basic principle that many events are annual or “one-offs”. That makes it a special time or moment in the lives of the attendees. And we always do our absolute best to contribute to the experience.

You are putting your trust in us. And we understand that as the event coordinator you may be fearful of making the wrong choice. This is why we always have an extensive consultation period before we accept any job. We want to know all your concerns because we will only take on what we know we can do well.
