S.D.R. Catering

Quality Buffets For All Occasions

There is a cafe located at the Activity centre where you can enjoy a wide selection of hot and cold meals and snacks overlooking the lake.

S.D.R. Catering was established when the function room at the activity centre at Rudyard Lake was hired out to groups who required catering. The business has grown considerably over the years and has provided many lunch time buffets to corporate groups who have always given excellent feedback. SDR Catering has also prepared large scale party buffets for christenings, funeral gatherings, anniversaries and birthday parties.
