Lords Caterers were established in 1934.

There will be few people in the area who haven’t sampled food prepared and served by Lords the Caterers, based in Whitworth near Rochdale. The company is now run by the fourth generation family. The present family team consists of the late Fred Lords’, son, Brian Lord, daughter, Christine Brownlie and son- in- law Gordon Brownlie. Millie Lord started the business in a small confectioners shop premises in Whitworth in 1934. Son Fred Lord transferred to larger premises in 1952 to the 3 story ex Co-op bakery in Whitworth expanding his growing catering business.

The move will enable us to provide a variety of outside catering services from elegant buffets, to delicious banquets and gourmet hot meals not forgetting our famous ‘Potato Pie Supper’. Some of the prestigious clientele Lords have served are Her Majesty the Queen, Princess Margaret and Pope John Paul, together with a trio of Prime Ministers including Harold Wilson, Edward Heath and John Major. We continue to serve many modern celebrities amongst them Sir Alex Ferguson CBE, Barry McGuigan MBE, William Roache MBE, Bet Lynch, Sam Aston and many other members of the Coronation Street cast. On speaking at a function at a local Football Club Uri Geller demonstrated his skill by bending our spoons.

The company’s second venue The Rose n Bowl carvery in Stacksteads is another growing success as home of the world famous gravy wrestling championship and winner of Rossendale Pub of the year in 2010. We are always happy discuss your requirements and offer a bespoke service either at The Rose & Bowl and at your own venue.

A great review of our Lancashire Lunch yesterday.

"A family outing to celebrate my 70th birthday a visit to the East Lancs Railway for a Lancashire Lunch was arranged.
The meal was superbly presented and greatly enjoyed by all, the wild mushroom soup was exceptional and the roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and appropriate fresh veg didn't stay long on the plates. The apple and blackberry pie with real custard finished the afternoon off a treat. The service and staff were first class as was the railway carriage and ambience, a good day for a special milestone birthday, which I would highly recommend."

To everyone at Lord the Caterers, just wanted to say a big 'Thank you' to you and all the staff for making our Wedding Day so special.
Ann & Derek Walsh
This is just to say a massive THANK YOU for looking after my wife and me today on the steam trip from Bury.The chefs deserve a great big pat on the back along with the serving staff who got all the food out. Not one item of our meal was cool or tepid it was all piping hot. I think we will be visiting Stacksteads in the near future if the food on the train is anything to go by.Thank you again and all the best for the future.
