Searcys, one of the UK’s oldest hospitality companies, was appointed as the HAC's official caterer in February 2019.

Founded in 1847, its story can be traced back to the vision of one man: Victorian entrepreneur and the Duke of Northumberland’s confectioner, John Searcy. He honed his skills catering at private parties for royalty and high society – and word soon spread of his talent. After ten years of service to the Duke and Duchess, he set up his very own hospitality company in 1847. Before long, he became the most sought-after caterer in the area, renowned for his artistry and attention to detail.

Using seasonal and high-quality produce, today's Searcys chefs reimagine and reinvent the modern British dishes we all know and love. We were awarded Two Star Food Made Good rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association in 2018, a testament to how provenance and sustainability are at the heart of the business. Most recently, Searcyswas awarded Event Caterer of the Year at the 2022 Foodservice Cateys.
