Extraordinary venues connected by world-class food

Did you know that 42% of all feedback about an event relates to the food served? Food is, after all, what everyone loves to talk about. That’s why, at Lime Venue Portfolio, we go above and beyond to connect organisers to exquisite food that complements their event, in a Covid-safe way.

We’re proud to be part of Compass Group PLC, a global and successful FTSE 100 company and the UK’s leading food and support services provider. Each year, over 500,000 Compass Group colleagues serve five billion meals in 50,000 client locations in 50 countries. Impressive, right? When you partner with the Compass Group, you’ll benefit from big company strength with a small company feel.

Every Lime Venue Portfolio venue is catered for by some of Compass Group’s incredible sub-sectors, including Levy UK, RA Group, Jockey Club Catering, The Venues Collection, Payne & Gunter and Chartwells. By working side-by-side with our fellow sub-sector brands, we’re able to deliver taste experiences that exceed all expectations at every event.

Food is our passion. It’s what brings our brands together.
