Absolute Taste wins £5m Burghley House deal

Event catering company Absolute Taste has won a five-year contract at Burghley House in Stamford, Lincolnshire.

The deal, which the caterer anticipates will be worth more than £1m a year in turnover, sees Absolute Taste provide all the food and drink at the Elizabethan property. It will operate 80 covers at The Orangery restaurant and the Garden Café and provide catering for all events held at Burghley House.

The restaurant, originally designed by English landscape architect Lancelot "Capability" Brown, will undergo an interior refurbishment funded in the main by Absolute Taste and the menu will feature locally sourced ingredients from niche suppliers.

Lyndy Redding, managing director of Absolute Taste, described the contract win as an honour. "We have loved the venue from the moment we were first shown around. I always say that if you are given an amazing canvas you can't go wrong.

"We are very much looking forward to working with Burghley to create something really special, and hope that it becomes a place to enjoy not just for its history but for the food too!"
