Epic - The Event Catering Company
Whether you have a room full of people or a small gathering, Epic has got your event sorted. We have an array of exquisite menus and endless, delicious menus for you to chose from to impress your guests from the offset. If you are foodies – let us make your vision happen. Or, if you prefer a more traditional style menu, kick back and our designated food experts will take care of the menu for you.
We’ll handle the style, delivery and service whilst you take care of organising the rest of your event, which will give you peace of mind you need.
Better yet, say the word and we will provide staff to meet you at your venue to handle the set-up, maintenance and clear up after your event should you need an extra pair of hands.

As a standard, we ask for you to choose one starter, one main & one dessert for all your guests to have the same. This way, you are reducing any need for unnecessary admin and service remains smooth! We can of course discuss offering your guests a choice at a supplement of £1.50 per person, per course where you can offer up to three choices per course. We will require these choices as a ‘pre-order’ at least one month in advance, with a corresponding table plan to ensure your guests get the correct dishes.
Don’t panic about this to begin with. Almost all weddings
we cater have at least some dietary requirements to look after. As long as we know about any guests with allergies & food intolerances such as gluten free, dairy free, nut allergies etc we can adapt your chosen dishes to suit their requirements or give a close alternative at no additional charge. This will also cover any vegetarians or vegans – we will have an alternative dish for these guests to have at no
Of course you can. We pride ourselves on being versatile and flexible when it comes to your wedding catering. Anything is possible. The brochures and menus are inspirational guides to point you into the right direction. If there is anything that you’re not too sure about or want to switch out for something else, we can discuss this with you to create a dish you will enjoy. Changing your potato style or switching out a vegetable for something else is
Our professional opinion would be to go for what you will enjoy rather than worrying about what everyone else will like. The wedding is about yourselves as a couple, so you should be able to share with your guests an insight into what you love to eat (As well as your other half of course!) If you are really worried about what your guests will think of your chosen menu and think that your guests will not enjoy certain things you have chosen, then opting for a choice menu will be the way forward. You aren’t always going to please everyone but with a few options to choose from, you
have a little bit more of a chance to satisfy!
Absolutely not! With Epic, we encourage the unusual if that’s what you’re looking for. Our team of catering experts are on hand to discuss any idea, thought or even colour scheme to match the food to your vision. Have a chat with your wedding expert to discuss more details on doing something a little different to the traditions, and look out for our high street feast, sharing ranges and small dish feast on our brochure to get your creative juices flowing for inspiration!
We would recommend giving your guests 2 drinks for your drinks reception, 1⁄2 a bottle of wine per person and a toasting drink. With the toasting drinks, you will get around 6/7 glasses out of a bottle of fizz, 3 large glasses of a bottle of wine, and 28 shots (25ml) for spirits such as
gins & rum.
Your menu can switch and change up until one month before the wedding, so you have plenty of time to decide what you’d like to go for. We will be looking for a more accurate guest number and food choices around 1 year before to coincide with your 50% payment, however at this stage we still don’t expect you to know exact numbers or food choices – just a better idea to arrange the payment! Any changes after this stage will be reflected at that one
month before period.
We recommend any suppliers that will be with you for the duration of the day will need to be fed. Check with your suppliers’ terms & conditions if they have any set rules on what you have to provide for them, but we will always suggest to offer at least 2 courses of your wedding breakfast to them to ensure they’re fed, they are at work too! To help you out, we have our suppliers’ meals at a reduced cost.
We usually recommend catering around 90% of your evening guests other than when choosing the pizza station. We would highly recommend catering to 100% of your evening guests for the pizza, or at the very least 95% of your total number of guests. If you are not having any additional guests join you for the evening do, we would still suggest catering to around 90% to ensure your guests are fed adequately for the evening. We provide our evening buffets in Kraft boxes which are recyclable takeaway boxes, for your guests to move about the evening party freely and box up to take home with them if they wish. This is just a guide – speak with
your designated wedding expert to discuss further numbers.
Our pizza portions are priced at a half a pizza (1/2 a pizza) per person. As a standard, our toppings for the pizzas are Barbecue pepperoni, margherita or goats’ cheese and red onion. If you’d like to switch one of these out for something a little different (Like ham & pineapple, chicken & sweetcorn etc), just let us know ahead of the day and we can have these instead! The pizza station is presented on a table for guests to help themselves to slices – or you can upgrade to our Pizza Van at £550 plus VAT where our pizzas are live cooked from the van outside. Dietary requirements will also be catered for as long as you let us know!
Once your event catering is confirmed with us, we will look to invite you to your Epic Food Tasting Experience between 1 year – 6 months before the event at either your chosen venue or at one of our Tasting Suites. We will give plenty of notice as to when your taster will be due to take place to ensure you have plenty of time to plan around it. If you require a food taster if you are deciding between caterers at a venue that has a suppliers list, contact your
sales manager to discuss in more detail!
Our Food Tasting Experiences are where you get to try a selection of our most popular dishes to have a feel of what to expect for your big day, have a chance to meet the team face to face and discuss any questions you may have and
enjoy the presentation of our delicious food.
Our Food Tasting Experiences are for couples only, as we
have limited spaces to ensure all our couples have the opportunity to attend. These tasting sessions are
complimentary from us.
Check with your Epic Sales Manager for venue specific terms. Our standard terms are to secure your booking with us, we would ask for £1,000 deposit to secure the date and the rate of your wedding catering. Following this, we will send our E-Copies of the terms & conditions for you to read, sign, return and keep for the duration of your booking. Following this, we will then ask for a 50% balance either 1 year before the wedding, or 7 days from your food
taster – whichever comes first.
After this, we will then require your final balance along
with your final guest numbers, food choices and dietary requirements no later than 1 month before the wedding. You can pay off your balances either via Bank Transfer which are always attached to the bottom of your invoice, using your unique reference code given by our Sales Team. Alternatively, you can give us a call on our office number to make payment via credit card over the phone. Please note
we do not accept Amex.
