Welcome to Lauren's Catering

Celebrating over 25 Years of Business

Lauren’s Catering

Professional Catering Services in Gloucestershire

We are a family run firm and have been catering for the people of Gloucester for over 25 years, so you may well know us already. You might have spotted one of our fleet of snack vans.  Perhaps you have used our retail outlet on the Bristol Road, which opened in 1993.  Although sadly now closed, if you know Waterwells you will have seen our shop where you can pop in and buy our delicious snacks.  Our Waterwells shop is also our main preparation and distribution centre. But there is much more to us than that!

Our 6 snack vans are refrigerated and each has hot ovens allowing us to supply a wide variety of delicious hot and cold snacks.  Why not put your business on one of our regular routes?  Specific orders can be phoned in prior to delivery.

We also specialise in buffets for all types of event and function and can offer a variety of menus to suit all tastes and budgets. You may have specific dietary requirements.  If so, simply let us know and we will do our best to meet them.

Wherever possible we try and use local suppliers, including two local bakeries.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and our standards of service.  Amongst our established clients are Gloucestershire Constabulary, Hartpury College and Foxmoor School.

You may think you know us already – but we want to know you better!  Give us a call today and find out how we can serve up some tasty solutions for you.

Sad, Sad News …

It is with a heavy heart that we need to inform you of the closure of our Bristol Road branch. We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause to our loyal customers and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for an amazing 26 years of business and for helping us to grow into the company we are today, which started here in Bristol Road back in August 1993.

Don’t worry though, we are still operating from our Waterwells shop where we offer our takeaway/delivery service, buffet services and we also still run our fleet of 6 snack vans!
Oh, and don’t forget, If you would like one of our vans to call to your workplace, please just give us a call on 01452 382690 and we will be happy to arrange this for you.

We look forward to seeing you at our Waterwells shop very soon!

“We have worked with Lauren’s for a number of years now – fantastic, friendly customer service and lovely food is what brings us back literally, every day. There is flexibility when placing large orders, and on tight timescales and we are always impressed by the buffet services and options available."

Prospect Training Services

“I can highly recommend Tony, Ian and the team at Lauren’s Catering company. We have been working in partnership for over 2 years, and always receive a fantastic 100% from their customer service, always willing to make changes, and deliver at short notice, I would highly recommend Lauren’s for their day to day services, buffets and their excellent service."

Nine Group

“Lauren’s have provided our Free School Meal Service since its inception and manage to provide a fresh and healthy lunch for our children on a very small budget. We have been delighted with the service and their flexibility when it comes to our more ‘fussy eaters’. Their delivery is prompt on a daily basis and they are extremely accommodating when we have school visits etc. often dropping off the meals before 9.00am.

We would thoroughly recommend their service.”

Foxmoor Primary School

I have been using Lauren’s for about a year to provide catering for meetings and in house events.

I have found them to be helpful, reliable and efficient in all areas and would happily recommend them to others.

Rachael Wells - Rygor Commercials

I am most happy with their service. They can produce catering services even at weekends when we need them. I have always found that the food service that they provide has arrived in a timely manner, that there are very generous portions and it is always very fresh.

It is very easy to place orders over the telephone and the staff are very efficient and friendly. Overall, the service is very good indeed.

We're one big family.

Meet our amazing staff!
