Searcys wins Royal College of Surgeons contract

Despite the most testing of years, Searcys recently announced that it has been appointed the new catering partner for the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS). From May 2021, Searcys will commence providing hospitality services for the RCS for the next seven years.

Searcys will oversee all catering, event sales and marketing operations, while also looking after the event spaces and meeting rooms, café, library and members’ lounge. Dating back to 1797, the RCS at Lincoln’s Inn Fields is home to over 25,000 members, and has undergone many transformations over the years, with a brand-new venue opening in May 2021.

Walter Hand, facilities manager for the RCS, said: “We are delighted to have Searcys on board. From the outset, we were impressed by the quality and finesse of the food offer, as well as Searcys’ experience in managing and marketing large venues. We look forward to working with the team and developing our meetings and events at the venue.”

Searcys managing director Paul Jackson added: “The last 12 months have been incredibly challenging for the hospitality and events industries, and this new win is a testament to the hard work and resilience of the team at Searcys. Delivering outstanding hospitality has been at the core of Searcys for over 170 years and we look forward to bringing our expertise, quality and ethos of providing special moments to the RCS guests. We are happy to be busy again!”
