      Paul Jackson

      Managing Director

      I love the way John Searcy, the founder of our company, was described by his contemporaries: "Gentle, courteous and masterful". These traits are all still fundamental to Searcys personality today and are very close to my heart. 

    • Charlie Richards

      Finance Director

      I have always been fascinated by the hospitality world since my first job in a bar at 19. Searcys started as a brilliantly innovative service concept over 170 years ago – before the phrase 'event caterer' had been invented - and became one of the first event management companies of its day. I am enthused to be working with entrepreneurial individuals empowered to experiment and make a difference.

  • We continue to set the standards for excellence in hospitality and events. Our five Brand Pillars make Searcys: Proud Heritage, Continuous Quality, Human Touch, Indulgent Moments and Trust.

    Proud Heritage

    Founded in 1847 by John Searcys, there’s 174 years’ worth of experience that sits behind what we do and how we do it. As hospitality market leaders, we have launched bold and pioneering concepts, including the original in-station Champagne Bar at St. Pancras International and one of London’s first-ever skyscraper restaurants! We’re enormously proud of every step of the Searcys story and alongside the flawless quality we deliver, our heritage is what continues to open the doors of some of the UK’s most prestigious establishments to us today.

    Continuous Quality

    It’s what keeps people coming back. Over the years we’ve worked hard to make Searcys synonymous with the highest standards in dining, at some of the most spectacular venues. We know the expertise, meticulous planning and flawless execution that’s required to deliver quality experiences time and time again and we thrive on that challenge. It’s what puts a smile on our faces and our customers’ too.

    Human Touch

    Gentle, courteous and masterful, were the words used to describe our founder John Searcy’s character. And these traits are all still fundamental to the Searcys brand personality today. Our rich history and experience might have given us an assuredness in our levels of skill and ability to lay on the very best experiences but they’ve also taught us never to do so at the expense of a warm-hearted welcome.


    Trust is earned and we know it’s at stake with every experience we create, every glass of Champagne we serve, and plate of food we take to a table. By quietly insisting on the highest standards we not only win our clients’ confidence but create an environment in which every little detail has been thought of, so that people can truly relax and indulge.

    Indulgent Moments

    Indulgence shouldn’t just be saved for special occasions. We believe there’s a well-earned place for it every day. So we always aim to offer a taste of indulgence that feels sophisticated yet effortless wherever we can. Whether that’s a glass of Champagne before you board at St Pancras, or a breakfast that kicks the day off in style at The Pump Room.
