A fresh approach to food — we’ve taken time to understand the crucial role nutrition plays in concentration and learning. Our award-winning chefs have designed healthy, balanced menus to keep your delegates focused and energised throughout the day.

Our waterfront self-service restaurant serves delicious, seasonal dishes, whilst our lounges offer unlimited tea and coffee throughout the day. Morning pastries and afternoon treats are baked onsite at our very own bakery, E16.

Here are some things our chefs took into consideration when planning the CentrEd menu:

Nutritious and balanced meals — as we all know, a balanced meal is key to physical and mental wellbeing which is why the CentrEd menu is designed to fuel the body and mind, with the right balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats.

Souping — stepping away from standard juicing, the latest trend on the CentrEd menu is ‘souping’ which uses whole vegetables, meaning the end product retains more fibre.

Coconut — Coconut is used on the CentrEd menu whenever possible, as it’s rich in a wide range of minerals and vitamins, essential for stimulating the brain.

World cuisine — with London offering 70 world cuisines across 8,000 restaurants, the CentrEd menu offers a variety of international dishes reflecting the Capital’s strong gastronomic culture! 

Dietary requirements — menus are designed to take into account all dietary requirements. From vegetarian and vegan to gluten free, halal and kosher, there are a variety of dishes to suit individual delegate requirements.

What our clients say…

“Traditionally we’ve always hosted our events in the North West but wanted to expand into London. Selecting the right venue was key and CentrEd at ExCeL proved to be an ideal choice. For us, it ticked every box — the venue is ideally located, easy to get to and offers the right mix of flexible event space and delegate catering. The onsite team were excellent, helping us every step of the way to ensure the smooth running of our event.”

"Thank you so much for all of your effort, patience and good humour during the Launch Pad events at CentrEd last week. As always, it is an absolute pleasure to work with you all. You made the new (somewhat complicated agenda) run smoothly and the learnings which we all shared from last year made the events even more of a success. It is so lovely to work as a team on the events – they really feel like a joint effort and I get huge amounts of support working with you which I appreciate so much. You are an absolute credit to the ExCeL (I hope they know that), a delight to work with and you ensure that CentrEd is my favourite venue by far!! THANK YOU!!!"

“CentrEd hosted our annual Alumni event in November 2016 and the events team at the venue really helped to ensure that the event was a success. From the pre-planning stage to the event itself the venue was very accommodating and made sure we had everything that we needed. It was great to have our own dedicated AV manager on the day and this really put my mind at rest as we had several important speakers coming. All the guests also commented on the extremely high standard of the food served, as this really was a cut above! I would definitely consider CentrEd for future events.”

"I just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to you and your team for making our day fabulous.  Everything was perfectly organised and I couldn’t have asked for more. A massive ‘Thank You’ to Mimi – she is amazing and a great asset to your team!  No task was too big for her and she was there with us every step of the way, to ensure our day ran smoothly.”
