About Us

Who is Lime Venue Portfolio?

We are the UK's largest collection of diverse venues, connected by great tasting food and memorable experiences.

We bring together individual venues, all operated by Compass Group UK & Ireland, in pursuit of a common purpose - to build their meeting, incentive, conference and event business.

The portfolio of diverse venues provides you with a variety of venue options to suit your event objectives and support your event ROI. Unlike our competitors, we do things differently by offering account management and an award winning central enquiries venue finding service, for event bookers including agents, corporates, associations and charities, saving everyone time and money.

Our central enquiries team contact multiple venues within the portfolio to find the right venue for your event and aim to get back to you with a full proposal within 3 hours. We don't charge customers commission or even a fee and the price quoted will be the same as going direct. Our competitors all say there are, but we truly are a completely complimentary service to our customers, as we exist to support our wider business - Compass Group UK & Ireland.

We're not a faceless online only business, we maintain one point of contact throughout your booking. We also love getting out and about, regularly meeting with you our customers.

We will ensure your event goals are supported and understood.
