Tonic reach finalist status

Posted on: August 1st, 2016 by chandco

Two years ago we were awarded the coveted Caterer of the Year title at Event magazine’s annual awards ceremony.  This year, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been shortlisted again as an Event Awards finalist for Caterer of the Year 2016.

We won the 2014 award following a hard battle involving a written submission and a heated cook off and presentation. A panel of industry-recognised judges including Event magazine personnel devoured our creative menu during the tasting stage at famed Borough Market.

We’re excited to be entered into the finalist draw once again and are eager to show the judges what we’ve been up to recently. This year the tasting stage will take place on 7th September, returning to the same venue, and preparations are already underway at Harbour & Jones Events HQ for what promises to be a tough competition.

Congratulations to all of our team for getting so far and fingers crossed.

We’ve put together some summer packages to whet your appetite, including offers for events at the world’s last surviving tea clipper, Cutty Sark. Enjoy a cold glass of fizz with some fine food as you soak up the sun on the ship’s deck. What better way to bring in the summer months…

Good news for Harbour & Jones

Posted on: December 17th, 2015 by chandco

Harbour & Jones acquires Principals Catering Consultants

We would like to share with you the exciting news that the Harbour & Jones family is expanding.

On 15th December 2015 we acquired Principals Catering Consultants Ltd, which trades in both the events and business and industry fields as Fare of London, a prestigious contract catering and venue management business, and Principals Catering, a prominent education caterer.

This exciting initiative forms a part of our next five-year strategy and will allow us to remain both independent and a leader in our field. Harbour & Jones, Harbour & Jones Events and H&J Upfront, along with Fare and Principals, will all continue to trade in each respective market and as separate and distinct brands. Each company is an expert in its field and it would be foolhardy to change what we believe is already a winning approach.

Fare of London and Principals Catering were founded over 25 years ago and are well-established companies, run by respected managers and operators, who we know will add a great deal to our portfolio and experience.

There is also a personal connection with PCC. In his early career Nathan Jones worked for the owner, John Durden, at Principals Catering and later, Fare of London. As John was looking to plan his retirement he wanted to hand on his company to people he knew and trusted, so this agreement seemed the next logical step for both Durden and Harbour & Jones, and an opportunity not to be missed.

“We may be bigger but our values will stay the same: our pursuit of innovation and creativity; our commitment to good nourishing food; our focus on quality and service and our verve.” Patrick Harbour

We have made a video that explains more about our acquisition. You can view this at www.greatcombination.co.uk.

Borough Market launches its first Christmas with Harbour & Jones Events

Posted on: September 21st, 2014 by chandco

Borough Market has announced a partnership with boutique caterer Harbour & Jones Events, the companies will work together for Christmas, and going forward into 2015.

This is the first time Borough Market has created a joint package with a caterer and the first time the venue has officially been open for Christmas events.

Creating new packages for event bookers, the menus have been designed to reflect Borough Market’s outstanding food credentials, using produce from the market’s traders as well as providing unique add-ons that tie in with the market’s history.

Borough Market can accommodate receptions for up to 350 in its striking Market Hall as well as seated dinners for up to 100 in 1 Cathedral Street, a grand Victorian building that is the historic home of the old Borough Market Trustees.

“It’s very exciting for us to be able to work with the country’s most well known market whose name is synonymous with food quality and provenance,” said Patrick Harbour, Co-owner and Director of Harbour & Jones Events.

“Borough Market has been a part of our company’s history since Harbour & Jones was first created in 2004. We used to bring all new starters to the company to the market for their inductions to enthuse them about food and give them the opportunity to talk to some of our suppliers in person.”

Harbour & Jones Events creates the perfect chemistry with new partner

Posted on: September 16th, 2013 by chandco

We’ve been announced as the new hospitality and events caterer at the Royal Society of Chemistry.  Taking over from 1st July, the contract is worth in excess of £1 million over the three-year term.

Burlington House, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s historic central London home, houses its offices, conferencing and dining facilities in the grand surroundings of The Chemistry Centre. It has now become a part of the prestigious Harbour & Jones Events venue collection, which also includes the Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, RADA and the Academy of Medical Science.

Head chef Alan Sosa has been at the Royal Society of Chemistry since January having previously worked for high profile clients including EMI Records and the Houses of Parliament. Already making his mark with molecular gastronomy, Harbour & Jones Events has been working with Alan to refine the menu even further, creating a strong link between the society’s chemistry roots and molecular gastronomy.

Patrick Harbour, owner and director of Harbour & Jones Events said: “We are delighted to have started working with the Royal Society of Chemistry in their amazing building at Burlington House. As their name suggests we will be including molecular gastronomy and chemistry-influenced items on the menu. Another major part of our focus will be in enhancing the conference and working lunch menus to provide excellent value and consistency.”

The impressive Royal Society of Chemistry library continues the atmosphere of academic grandeur and houses over 20,000 books; it is also one of the most popular event spaces at the Chemistry Centre, attracting a host of high-profile clients including GlaxoSmithKline, Proctor & Gamble, BHP Billiton, BP, AstraZeneca and the London College of Fashion.

Renato Carvalho, Hospitality Manager at the Chemistry Centre, said: “This is the start of an exciting venture together and we look forward to welcoming our clientele who will experience the fabulous cuisine provided by Harbour & Jones Events.”

Harbour & Jones Events will be working on menus with new concepts including interactive ice cream parlours and tapas-style lunches, using bold British, Moroccan, Spanish and Italian-themed menus.

“One of our new concepts will be a sharing British picnic lunch for a more informal style of service during the remainder of the summer,” concluded Patrick.
