About Us



We think it’s fair to say that there isn’t much we don’t know about catering equipment and the foodservice industry. Our considerable expertise has been built up from being within the business for over 40 years. We are a well-respected and highly regarded foodservice equipment solutions supplier in the UK and we strive to be the very best, continually developing the products and services we offer, making us a truly nationwide ‘one stop’ catering equipment supplier. This growth has been achieved by listening to you, our customers, placed at the forefront of the market. We pride ourselves on understanding and anticipating the needs of our customers, providing catering solutions for tomorrow’s needs - today.

R H Hall continues to work on evolving our products and services to ensure we deliver to your expectations - continuing to invest in our business and furthering our commitment to our customers.

Our philosophy is clear - to provide all sectors of the industry with an unparalleled premium buying experience - providing best name brands, an extensive product range, guaranteed stock availability and dedicated teams of knowledgeable staff to provide unbiased professional buying advice, all backed up by nationwide service, spare parts, and technical support second to none.

In all we represent over 100 top brands, equating to over 10,000 products, all available on a free next day delivery service. You can rest assured that when you purchase from us you get premium brands and a premium service - but without the premium price! We give you the very best buying terms in the industry, whatever the size of your order and you can be certain of no hidden extras - our terms are transparent, they are what they say they are. You also get peace of mind - we have a nationwide network of R H Hall approved distributors, so no matter where you are there is one of our distributors nearby to offer you further sound advice, product demonstrations, immediate supply, and reliable after-sales service.

Our professional team, both in house and within our network of over 1,400 nationwide appointed dealers, can offer unbiased advice to help enhance or expand a business, based on what we believe is the best and latest solution. And if there isn’t one... well, we’ll develop one! Our R&D team, based within our state of the art Development Kitchen, will work alongside each customer to develop a bespoke, unique solution - creating a real recipe for success. Whether it’s a one-off piece of equipment or a tailored roll out for a nationwide chain, we really are your ‘one stop shop’ for catering equipment - you need look no further.

We can also draw upon expertise from the valuable relationships we have with our approved business
partners. We are extremely proud to work with some of the best brands in commercial catering equipment - we are the Sole UK & Eire Distributor for Sharp Professional Microwave Ovens - and have been for over 20 years! We also hold Exclusive Distributor status for Maestrowave Microwaves, Smeg Foodservice Ovens, iWave® Foodservice Solutions, Simply Stainless Modular Fabrications, Hallco Catering Equipment, Crown Verity Professional Barbecue Systems, Nemco Manual Food Preparation and the Soup Stop Automated Soup Server.

In 2011 we formed our Fabrication Services division, operating from a modern and fully equipped 15,000 square foot British Factory and enabling us to offer a complete and extremely comprehensive Foodservice product catalogue. Our growing team boast many years of experience in all forms of metal fabrication between them. They also love a new challenge - all projects from small, to full product rollout are welcomed. Today, the majority of our orders are for bespoke projects and custom builds, with production built entirely to the customer's specification. Our in house design department are able to take custom requirements and transfer these directly to the production floor for manufacture. We are also able to provide sample and prototype units before full production begins, ensuring every detail is as required. Whether your requirement is a bespoke stainless steel bench or a custom-designed service counter, we can work with you to make your ideas a reality!

We also work in partnership with a number of major food companies and suppliers to help us keep abreast of industry trends and maintain our position at the forefront of innovation. Our Development Kitchen was created specifically for this reason, allowing us to provide not just the right equipment, but a complete business solution too. This 2,500 square foot facility offers a valuable hands-on environment to develop new menus and concepts and plays host to many industry events including ‘Cook Live’ demonstrations and foodservice seminars - many top development chefs from around the UK have now experienced this centre of excellence.

R H Hall is a firm believer in supporting the foodservice industry, both now and for the future. We support a number of professional bodies including the Microwave Technologies Association, Catering Equipment Suppliers Association, Cedabond, ENSE, Hospital Caterers Association and Health Estates & Facilities Management Association, as well as being approved suppliers for ESPO and NHS Supply Chain.

We always advocate that you should select the best equipment you can afford - many cheaper imported products are flooding into the UK and it can be tempting to go down this route. But unknowingly to many, a lot of this equipment doesn’t reach any product conformity standards. We insist on this and urge you do too! In fact, our investment into the integrity of our products runs into tens of thousands of pounds a year - but we don’t pass this cost on to our customers, we absorb this operational cost into our business as we believe it has to be given to ensure we offer the best and safest products possible. We have maintained ISO acceditation since 1998 and all of our key brand products are WEEE, RoHS, and CE compliant.
