Each year Bankstone’s crack cakes-and-coffee tasting team, descends on the BIBA conference to put a selection of pies, pastries, pasties etc through their paces in a quest to find the Conference Caterer Exhibitionists of the Year.

We had a little trouble this year, inadvertently parking in the far flung “Orange Zone”, wandering around lost for a bit and accidentally sitting a three-hour Sociology exam before finally reaching the correct corner of the ExCess conference centre in which to set to to sampling.

The ultimate winner of our exhaustively researched award for a truly outstanding combination of top-quality coffee and Danish pastries goes to Arag, on whose stand a genuine “barrister” was on site to brew up a wide selection of damned fine coffee.

Presumably he was one of the many members of the legal professionals now seeking alternative employment in the wake of LASPO.

They even served something called a Flat White – presumably named in tribute to BIBA’s effervescent new CEO.



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
