Wilson Vale’s food attracts top award

5th December 2018

Our catering operation at College Court, the University of Leicester’s dedicated conference centre and hotel, has scooped ‘Best Catering Service’ category at the Academic Venue Awards, held on Tuesday 27th November at the University of Birmingham.


We manage a breakfast, lunch, dinner and busy hospitality service for delegates and visitors at College Court, as well as catering for weddings and events.  The focus is on craft skills, with everything made in-house from fresh, seasonal ingredients.


Steve Crawford, centre director at College Court said: “Our catering partners, Wilson Vale, truly go above and beyond and have a deep passion for our business. Our chefs create inspirational dishes, whilst keeping focus on presentation, ensuring that we stand apart from our competitors. They consistently exceed both College Court’s and the clients’ and delegates’ expectations with their outstanding event catering.


“This award is as much their award as ours. With their help and support, we have built our reputation and a loyal client base that truly enjoy the fantastic food they create day-in, day out.”


Andrew Wilson, co-founder of Wilson Vale said: “We had two venue clients shortlisted within the same category so we were absolutely thrilled to see our food and service standards receive this national recognition. All credit to our on-site team at College Court, led by our talented chef manager, Sarah Armstrong, who consistently go above and beyond to wow delegates and visitors to College Court with their food.”
