Bespoke design services for catering operations

Good design isn’t just about how something looks; its also about how it works. This has a direct impact on the management of a facility, customer experience and ultimately the success and profitability of a catering operation. It’s why our design services factor in everything from space planning to advising on menus and capacities. 

Our goal is simply to support you in achieving your vision and helping you create a financially sustainable venture.  And over the years, we’ve successfully helped clients such as Pitzhanger Manor House and Gallery, the Cutty Sark Trust and Spinnaker Tower do just that.   

Innovative design consultancy services 

From the outset, we will work closely with you to understand your overall vision, and what you want to achieve.  Based on our years of experience designing cafés, restaurants, bars and kitchens, we will offer realistic, practical advice on what we think can be done to maximise your commercial opportunities.  If we think something is ill-advised, we will tell you, as ultimately, we want your venture to be a success. 

Our design service covers all aspects of a catering operation, such as foodservice areas, bar spaces and kitchens, and includes:  

  • spatial assessments
  • preliminary layout schematics
  • project budgeting
  • detailed CAD planning
  • equipment specification for kitchen, bar and restaurant areas


We can also manage the tendering process to secure competitive quotes for contractors’ supply and install, as well as project manage the installation on your behalf.  

Working successfully with partners

We are experienced at working as part of multi-disciplinary design teams lead by architects or project managers on behalf of the Client team themselves. Designing a café, restaurant, bar or kitchen in a sensitive setting is rarely done by one company, and we understand the dynamics of the design team process. 

We also regularly work with a number of other specialists, so can provide fully integrated and KH managed interior designer or chef led menu development.
