About Us

About Us

Thames Valley Catering Equipment is a family run business based in Oxfordshire,
 
We believe that customer service and price is essential in ensuring we have a customer base that will use us time and again.
 
We are agents for all of the major catering equipment manufacturers in the UK and together with our bespoke stainless steel fabrication service we are confident we can meet your total catering equipment needs.
 
"Thames Valley Catering provide a great before & after service with competitive prices.  They are always happy to come on site to discuss our requirements."
(Louise Parker - Buyer - Barry Callebaut UK)
 

All our products are sold with the full manufacturer's warranty. We keep our products competitively priced by properly managing our overheads. Two of the ways we achieve this are:

 
1.  By not having our own show room, if a client wishes to see the equipment they are interested in buying we will by appointment visit the manufacturer's UK showrooms / test kitchens
 
2. By keeping our stock holding to a minimum and delivering the majority of our orders direct from the manufacturer.
 
Both of these initiatives ensure we are not tying up excessive capital so we can pass the cost savings onto our clients by competitive pricing.
 
We are delighted to have the following companies included in our client portfolio:
 
 Baltic Restaurant - London  Barry Callebaut UK  Cocolicious - Cranbrook
     
 Honest Burgers  Kearney's Catering  Ognisko Restaurant London
     
 The Seafood Pub Company  Thai Orchid Group  Qumins Indian Cuisine

 

What some of our customers say about us

Marston St Lawrence village hall

After many years of suffering an ill-equipped, damp and unhealthy kitchen within our community village hall Marston St Lawrence embarked on a £50,000 project to re-build and equip it to a commercial standard. After a successful local fundraising and grant-funded campaign we engaged Thames Valley Catering to supply the stainless steel furniture and commercial quality equipment, including sink unit, dishwasher, microwave and water heater / boiler. The advice and service received was good value, courteous and welcome, especially during the planning stage. Installation was straightforward and all is now functioning well. A commercial catering manager who was engaged to provide meals for a large community event commented that it was "Absolutely marvellous". – David Scott Marston St Lawrence village hall committee

Kearney’s Catering @ The Grange Park Opera

The service we receive from Thames Valley Catering equipment is second to none, nothing is too much trouble for Simon and his team. They always supply keenly priced quality equipment delivered on time” – David Kearney

Barry Callebaut – Banbury

“When we built our new demonstration kitchen it became apparent that we would need a bespoke demonstration counter to fit our specific requirements.  We approached Simon who visited us to do a consultation and give advice about what would work best within the area. The counter that was manufactured exceeded our expectations, does exactly what we need it to and has attracted much attention from our customers. Thank you!" - Anna Tcherniak Gourmet Marketing Manager Barry Callebaut
