Here’s What People Have to Say About Us

When Alan and his team at Scotts of Carshalton approached our catering brief for our launch ‘Meet the Manufacturer’ this year we immediately knew we were in safe hands. Working within a Grade Listed building at the Truman building, Brick Lane, London, we needed to ensure we operated with a professional and reliable team; Scotts delivered a first class service. The team, quality of food and attention to detail in display made our conference buffet look colourful and inviting and offered a wide selection of foods for all our delegates dietary requirements, served by his friendly team.

Our VIP guests also enjoyed their amazing, wide selection of tasty canapés and drinks served at our evening reception. We would have no hesitation recommending Scotts of Carshalton and very much look forward to working with Alan and his team again for future events.

GAIL WALKER, Event Director, Meet the Manufacturer

Alan Dye and his team at Scotts have worked on many events for me and the outcome has always been outstanding. Not only is the quality of their food unbeatable but it is supported with beautiful presentation, the friendliest staff and first class service. Indeed we are very much looking forward to Scotts of Carshalton catering our forthcoming New Years Eve and sampling their hog roast which we have heard from friends who are also regular customers is absolutely mouth watering and from our experience Scotts never disappoint!


I write to confirm that Scott’s of Carshalton is a current member of the Scotch Butchers and was accepted into the club on 5th November 2004. In order to become a member of the club a butcher must be able to prove that they are sourcing Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI or Specially Selected Pork from a QMS assured processor.

As part of being a Scotch Butchers Club Member, the shops are audited on an annual basis to check that they are complying with the rules of the club, the most important being that they are continuing to source Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI or Specially Selected Pork Products.
