Peyton and Byrne was founded in 2005 by renowned restaurateurs Oliver and Siobhan Peyton. The company has expanded organically over the past 11 years, operating both a modern British retail bakery and café business as well as a separate public catering contracts business.

The public catering business operates contracts at the landmark locations of the National Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Imperial War Museum, the ICA and the Wallace Collection.
