Searcys can be traced back to one man's vision: Victorian entrepreneur and the Duke of Northumberland's confectioner, John Searcy. He honed his skills catering at private parties for royalty and high society – and word soon spread of his talent. After ten years of service to the Duke and Duchess, he set up Searcys in 1847. Before long, he became the first and most sought-after caterer, renowned for his artistry and attention to detail.
