Leigh Court: Perfect Blend of History, Elegance, and Epic Catering

Epic Catering is proud to announce our partnership with Leigh Court, an impressive Palladian mansion that stands proudly on a 25-acre estate on the edge of Leigh Woods. Located just outside of Bristol, Leigh Court is a short hop across the Suspension Bridge, a few miles from Clifton Village or the M5 J19 in the other direction.

This majestic venue, steeped in rich history and architectural grandeur, provides the perfect backdrop for unforgettable weddings and corporate events.

Leigh Court is not just a venue; it’s a living testament to centuries of history and heritage. Its Palladian architecture, crafted from Bath stone, exudes timeless elegance, while the interior boasts stunning Greek revival décor, transporting guests to a bygone era of opulence.

Step inside the Great Hall, adorned with a magnificent double staircase and home to a meticulously restored pipe organ—a cherished relic of the past. Originally built in 1558 as a Tudor mansion by Sir George Newton, Leigh Court underwent a transformation in 1821 under the ownership of Sir Philip John Miles, a prominent figure in Bristol’s history.

Sustainability at the Heart of Leigh Court

At Leigh Court, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a core value woven into the fabric of their operations. As a Grade II* listed building, they face unique challenges in minimising their environmental impact. However, they have embraced these challenges head-on, championing sustainable solutions and innovative technologies to reduce overall carbon footprint.

From energy-efficient upgrades to waste reduction initiatives, taking all food and kitchen waste to be processed in an Anaerobic Digestion facility and converted into renewable energy, and using Terracycle to collect and recycle single-use plastics – Leigh Court is firmly committed to sustainability.

At Epic Catering, we understand the significance of aligning our practices with Leigh Court’s sustainability objectives. Just as the venue strives to reduce its environmental footprint, we are dedicated to serving up exceptionally good dishes that reduce our effect on the environment. From sourcing locally grown produce to minimising food waste through thoughtful menu planning, sustainability is at the forefront of our philosophy.

We’re excited to be working at Leigh Court and are dedicated to matching the venue’s sense of elegance and sophistication through each of our dishes. From elegant canapés to sumptuous main courses, each dish will be crafted with precision and passion. 

We understand that every event is unique, and our goal is to create an experience that reflects the individuality of each occasion. Whether it’s a romantic wedding reception or a corporate gala, you are in safe hands.
