Thanks for stopping by and considering Epicurus for your special day, whether that may be a small gathering at home, a cocktail party for the office, a wedding or maybe you just want afternoon tea on the top of The Cheviot to celebrate something special?

My catering career started when I was 14 years old in Newcastle as a dishwasher and waiter.  I gradually learned to cook too by helping the chef.  After studying business at university, I set up Epicurus in 1998 from my parent’s kitchen.  24 years later, I’m still providing fantastic catering and event support services throughout the North East of England.  In 2020 I trained and qualified as a Mountain Leader.  For an additional Epicurus service, I now take groups into the hills and mountains for adventure days, and cook them lunch whilst on the fells.

Epicurus operates in the North East of England; Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Northumberland, Teesside, Cumbria, The Coast, North Yorkshire, The Lake District and into the Scottish Borders.

I live at the Fish Quay in North Shields with my partner, three kids and two dogs. In my spare time I am involved in Scouting, I’m crew for the RNLI on the Tynemouth Lifeboat and I enjoy hiking and trail running.

In 2022, I’m training for and attempting to run 5 ultra marathons just for a challenge and to raise money for two local charities.  Details via the links below if you would like to learn more.  Instagram as @chrisrunsultras

I look forward to hearing how I can make your special day amazing.  If you would like to discuss anything about a forthcoming event or just want some advice, then please call for a chat.  (during office hours if possible please). My number is 07976 374629.  Happy to Zoom too!

Best wishes, Chris
