FAQs

As we deliver hospitality around campus in vans we are unable to transport jugs of water without is causing a Health & Safety Risk but we do offer a variety of bottled waters.

Deliveries after 5pm incur a delivery charge and  as this is outside of the normal working day we need to arrange staff to be available. If you do wish to place an order for out of hours delivery, please email the team at hospitality@venuereading.com and we can arrange this for.

To enable us to offer the most efficient service around campus and to allow for the most delivery slots per hour the delivery options are every 20 minutes. (e.g. 09:00, 09:20, 09:40 etc.).  If you require the delivery for 9.30am we suggest that you book it for 09:20 where possible.

As standard crockery isn’t included with the bookings as we understand that for most meetings this isn’t something that is required but it can be added to your booking for an additional charge.

The Tea & Coffee delivered on campus is provided in urns, which keep your drinks hot for up to 2 hours and will be supplied with paper cups as standard.  You do now have the option of ordering your tea & coffee to come without cups so that your guests can use their own reusable cups to help us be a more sustainable campus.  You can add crockery at an additional charge to your order if you wish to have china cups or alternatively we do sell the Keep Cups for your guests to reuse.

We take pride in being able to cater for all dietary requirements be that vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or dairy free or any other requirements as we have an extensive menu in place but please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of any assistance in advising around diets. We are also able to arrange for Kosher meals to be provided however as this is highly specialist these require at least 10 working days notice.

Due to the volume of orders being prepared on campus we need at least 48 hours notice to cancel orders

Pizzas are a special product and not produced in the same way as some of our other options so we require the 7 days notice to arrange these and to ensure we have appropriate staffing for this as they are a hot delivered product.

In order to provide the service and products required we need 48 hours to organise stock and arrange staff for your delivery.
