Need to impress potential clients? Want catering for an important business meeting? Have a special event to celebrate? Harriets Buffets deliver great tasting, handmade dishes directly to your office or event room.
At an important business meeting, presentation is everything. From the sharp lines of your suit to the speed of your pitch, potential clients are influenced by everything they see and hear. But once you’ve delivered your killer patter and mesmerised them with your charm it comes to that moment that could make or break the deal: The business lunch. The meal that will forever determine your future relationship. Get this wrong and you could undo everything good you’ve achieved in the preceding 4 hours.
That’s where Harriets Buffets come in. We create tailor-made platters created especially for your business. Handmade in our tearooms, we’ll deliver buffet lunches which will ‘wow’ your clients, taste amazing and help seal the deal.
What you serve at your business lunch is up to you. We recommend that you’re led by the nature of the formality of the meeting and the delegates involved.
Our buffets are ideal for large meetings. While cooked food takes time to be served, with a buffet people are free to help themselves, can hold their food in one hand while taking notes in the other and won’t be distracted if the business talk continues.
Sandwiches, fresh fruit and savoury bites are often the best fare. These are excellent choices, as the risk of spillages and accidents are reduced, ensuring clean white shirts and presentation documents are left clean and usable. Sweet treats are tasty but may result in an afternoon sugar crash, while spicy foods may not be for everyone’s tastes.
Water and fresh juice are also advised over carbonated drinks.
Harriets Buffets are all freshly made in our tearooms on the day of purchase. This means amendments to the menu can be made up until 9.30am on the day of the event. Because the buffet is made to order, we can satisfy all dietary requirements. Our menus cater for a wide variety of vegetarian, gluten and lactose-free, and coeliac friendly options. Speak to a manager at the time of booking to compile your bespoke menu.
To ensure your buffet is as fresh as possible, we can deliver to any locations within our preset zones close to our three tearooms.

As well as business meetings we can provide catering for any event in East Anglia. In addition to our buffet service, our three city centre restaurants are all available to hire for your event. We can help you to plan your event and deliver a tasty menu which will go down well with all of your guests.
Whether your office requires catering for regular board gatherings or infrequent buffets for client meetings, Harriets can help. As a special incentive, if you refer your office to us, and they book an office buffet, we’ll give you two special afternoon tea vouchers by way of a thank you.
So, whether you’ve been tasked with sourcing lunch for a corporate meeting, want to earn brownie points from your boss for your ingenious suggestion, or just want a free afternoon tea, refer us and win.
