  1. Does your venue suit your caterer?  What facilities and access does your caterer need?
  2. Will you be able to speak directly to the chefs to discuss specific needs?
  3. Can the caterer provide sufficient choice and cater for allergies?
  4. Will the caterer be able to work independently, without your help or supervision?
