Marcus and his wife have been a dream to work with from beginning to end. From speedy replies, to all of my ever changing requests, Marcus have been nothing short of amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and he is so knowledgable in the not only the catering world but events as a whole. Not only do they do food but everything else that goes with it - cutlery, plates, glasses, waiting staff, bar staff etc. They are the whole package. Most importantly, Marcus has been incredibly accommodating with us having to change our wedding dates due to Covid-19 and has been a pleasure to work with. I would recommend EpiCatering 1000 times over to all of my family and friends. We can’t wait to book you again for all future events, not just our wedding!
Siobhan and Dominic's Wedding Celebration
I just want to say the biggest thank you to you and Tracey for our wedding food. It was absolutely perfect! I approached Marcus well over a year ago, feeling anxious about having a completely outdoors wedding and having no idea how to pull it off. Marcus immediately put me at ease and made me feel like anything was possible, and nothing would be too much trouble. He came to see me and my partner at home, he met my Dad and listened to all of our ideas. Marcus seemed to instantly understand us as a family and came up with a menu that suited us perfectly. There were a lot of struggles for us in the year that came next, I lost my Dad and Covid-19 hit! Marcus was in touch regularly, reassuring us that when our day would arrive, he would be there. Planning a Covid-19 wedding was not easy, but Marcus made it easier. He went through the uncertainly with us, he moved things up, down round and back again without any hint of frustration. He watched and waited with us whilst government guidelines changed and each time they did, for better or for worse, he was in touch and helping us to work it out. The best message was the one where he expressed his excitement that wedding receptions for up to 30 guests were allowed 7 days before our date! When our day finally arrived Marcus and his wife Tracey were absolutely flawless and their food was incredible. Our guests could not stop talking about how good it looked and tasted AND how unique the menu was. It was meal made for us, the perfect fit. Marcus went above and beyond, even going out to get the exact ingredients for a cocktail that I made for my dad for our welcome drinks. He followed my own unique recipe to get it just right, and it was wonderful. My husband and I are so grateful and overjoyed with everything they have done to make our wedding as special and as perfect as it was. And I'm sure our guests will be talking about the food for years to come. Thank you both so much.

We would highly recommend EpiCatering as a caterer for your event. We had our wedding in Sussex in September, and Epicatering provided superb food and service. Marcus and Tracey were brilliant from start to finish. Marcus made sure that every detail was covered, including our last minute requests such as extra cutlery and linen, and always contacted us in a kind, professional, and attentive manner. The food on the day was spectacular. We had people from over 15 countries around the World attending our wedding, and everyone was equally impressed. Marcus and Tracey’s careful combination of different ingredients creates unique flavours that you can hardly find anywhere else. The service was seamless, and they really made sure that we had nothing to worry about. They also accommodated our very special requests, and always had our interests at heart. If you want someone you can trust, who will deliver extraordinary food and reliable service at excellent prices, Marcus and Tracey are the team to deliver. Thank you so much for making our day exactly as we wanted, we honestly couldn’t have done it without you.

We cannot thank Epic Catering enough for the absolutely incredible service, delicious food and organised crew. They catered for all our guests with special dietary requirements with ease. Over the course of 3 days, Marcus and Tracey served us 2 x breakfasts, a wedding breakfast, desserts and a hog roast. Their brilliant team served drinks and made all of our guests feel very welcome. Our festival wedding went without a hitch and we would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you ❤️.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing the catering for our party. From the initial enquiry right through to tidying up last night you guys have been amazing. The food was so good - everyone commented to say how great it was. And also the staff were fantastic. Please can you thank them all for all their hard work. They didn’t stop all night and did so much tidying up at the end. It was so appreciated as it meant I was actually able to enjoy the evening! We would definitely use you guys again and would recommend you to anyone! Thank you Emma

Marcus and Tracey did an outstanding job catering a picnic, BBQ and hog roast for our wedding - the food was all delicious, and there was plenty of it! They were super-organised and responsive during the planning period as well which was much appreciated. On top of that, their quote for the BBQ was half (!) the amount quoted by our venue's 'recommended' BBQ caterer. Excellent all round, very glad they were recommended to us.

Not only that, you went out of your way to make sure everyone was catered for because of allergies etc... which we are very grateful for! The best beef I have ever tasted and the most crackling we have ever seen!!! You are both so professional and friendly We had every trust in you that you would make the day go smoothly and you definitely delivered that! Thank you again Becky and Alex Balshaw xx

Dear Marcus and Tracey, I cannot thank you enough for making our celebration such a success - it was perfect. Paellas were delicious and plentiful; Sarah and her team worked efficiently and without supervision from us - even though the house was strange to them - in fact, you were all fantastic. Throughout the time I was planning this - you both gave me so much confidence - were always available to speak to (a rariety these days!); you organised tables, chairs, china etc etc and it all arrived when you said it would! The whole day ran like clockwork - everyone enjoyed it and are looking forward to our next one! Thank you so much - you are both genuinely lovely people - with love, Olive

Once again Marcus and his staff excelled in cooking for us. The food for the post-wedding party we threw for our son and daughter-in-law, Terry and Keely was out of this world. A well-judged menu, perfectly presented - we had so many compliments from our guests. Thanks once again. 😍😍😍

I was totally blown away by everything about EpiCatering. They catered my daughter’s wedding. They were easy to work with and very responsive to special needs. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Chele and Simon's Wedding Celebration on 04/05/19 at The Lodges at New House Farm, Etchingham, East Sussex
Back from Chele and Simon's wedding in the UK. Best food and staff ever! Generous quantities deliciously prepared and presented beautifully. Want you to come to America to do all of my catering. Staff was lovely and warm. I enjoyed speaking with them. Outstanding job! Marcy
Chele and Simon's Wedding Celebration on 04/05/19 at The Lodges at New House Farm, Etchingham, East Sussex
Marcus and EpiCatering are absolutely spectacular! From the first email on he was super quick to respond and incredibly easy to work with. He took the time to speak with me at length after the initial email and answered all my questions. Not only did he make suggestions for the meal according to our theme but he helped get the extra equipment needed (like cutlery, dishes, tables etc) and he even helped us plan the bar and how much we needed as we planned on purchasing the bar items ourselves. When the location fell through (as they were supposed to supply the bartender) Marcus quickly filled the spot by taking care of bar staff for us as well. People commented on the bartenders skill and on how hard he was working. But that's not all! Marcus went above and beyond when taking our food allergies, as well as several of the guests, into consideration when he created an entirely gluten, soy, and peanut free menu for us! We were absolutely blown away by how accommodating he was. Every single guest at our wedding commented on how fabulous the food was. Every single guest. (And let me tell you, there were many who were not used to eating gluten free.) We also had Marcus do our 'wedding cake' which was cheesecake (gluten free!). It was OUTSTANDING! Many of our guests have requested the recipe and there was one person who told me she hated desserts in general but that this was her new favorite and even asked for seconds! I can't recommend Marcus and his staff enough. They were friendly, skilled, very polite and the servers even came up to congratulate me and give me a hug before they left for the evening. If you're looking for a caterer with excellent food, elegant presentation, and phenomenal communication skills this is the caterer for you!

We just wanted to drop you a small message to say a very big thank you. We are so grateful for the fantastic food, incredible service and all-round brilliant attitude that you and Epicatering gave us during our wedding on 19th April. The food was so brilliant and so many people complimented the menu and how well everything was cooked. It was absolute perfection. We had a complex running order to our day but you professionally took on board every small request we had and never made us feel that anything was too much bother. The staff you brought in to serve and run our day were remarkable, friendly and it was a real pleasure to have them at our wedding. It has been a joy having you on board, helping us plan over the last 2 years and we really cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and your brilliant ability to supply world class food. You really helped make our day perfect. Thank you so much. I can not recommend you highly enough! Best wishes, Becky and Nathan Edwards

Epi-Catering *AMAZING* dont go anywhere else!!! I firstly like to apologise for the length of time it has taken me to do this review. Marcus/Tracey I am so very sorry. Ladies & Gents, I really cant praise this company nor Marcus & Tracey, I met them at a difficult time for my wife & I. I was welcomed into their home & instantly felt I had known them for years. Arrived for an intro meeting & some food tasting.......WOW I have never tasted or experienced hospitality like I did in their company before. I revisited with my now wife & she was equally blown away. Epi-catering took control/organised literally everything. The kindness, hospitality, standard of food, prep, presentation was literally faultless. I could go on & on but please if you want a fantastic day, fantastic food at a fantastic price please call Marcus and Tracey.
Jon and Lauren's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Barbecue and Desserts for 95 guests, Hog Roast for the evening food, on 27/06/18, Taylors Farm, Capel, Surrey
Saturday night's food and service was amazing. Thank you and Tracey so so much. Everyone loved the meal and so many of them commented on the wonderful meat. The two of you are so professional and yet so approachable and accommodating. Once you arrived it was as though a huge weight had been lifted! Sarah and Sandra were just wonderful and of my goodness they never stopped working‎. Having them there made such a difference and enabled me to concentrate on mixing with our guests. They are outstanding, it felt as if they were part of the family in way. I can not praise them or thank them enough for everything they did. Love the photos of the hog - they will go in the 18th album! We were eating some of the left overs for supper tonight, Felicia - who had TWO helpings last night (unheard of) specifically requested hog for supper and again had two helpings, she just loved it all. Many many thanks again to both of you. I hope this is a profitable year for you as you certainly deserve it! Kind Regards‎ and Best wishes Jane

Mick's 70th Birthday Celebration, Moroccan Lamb Tagine, Tuscan Chicken Stew and Desserts for 50 guests on 27/10/18, Bridge Cottage, Uckfield, East Sussex
My wife and I used Marcus and his amazing team for our wedding last week. I had been searching everywhere for a good hog roast company that did the full package; Epicatering were exactly what we were looking for! The food was incredible and so many or our guests came up to us and were literally speechless when trying to talk about how delicious it was. His crackling was the biggest hit of the night! The canapés were beautifully presented and Marcus even asked us what our wedding colours were so he could match those colours with the decoration of the canapés. I should obviously add that the canapés were also delicious: presentation and taste! Epicatering also showed up on time and were incredibly professional from the moment they arrived. Their staff were elegantly dressed in all black and were always nearby whenever a guest had a need. Our guests were so amazed at how professional and helpful they were! They cut our cake, served drinks all night, walked around with the canapés and much more, all for a really good price. They also left the place how they found it, cleaning up after themselves and asking us if they could do anything else before they head off. Kind and helpful from start to finish. The thing that we found most stressful whilst wedding planning was trying to contact our vendors. Marcus is such an amazing communicator! He always answered his phone and if he didn’t then he would call back immediately. Emails were responded to very quickly and he kept a constant up-to-date sheet that highlighted all of what was discussed in phone calls. This was so helpful for us because Marcus did all the organising for us! It was such an honour working with Epicatering and I really could not recommend them more. So many other hot roasts I looked at had decent food, but none had the presentation we were looking for; Marcus has better food, better presentation and is so professional. I highly recommend him and his team! Thanks for everything, Marcus!
Courtney and Calvin's Wedding Celebration, Canapés and Hog Roast for 120 guests on 13/10/18, Manor House, Greatham, Hampshire
Marcus and his team catered for our wedding at the Milwards Estate on the 29/9/18, we had a total of 115 guests with differing needs but all were catered for brilliantly. We started with canapés before having a barbecue and dessert followed in the evening by a hog roast. All the way through both Marcus and Tracey were brilliant helping with any changes we needed to make. And on the day our guests loved the food with many many comments of praise. If I was ever to hold another big event then Epicatering would be the first people I would call. Thank you Marcus Tracey and your team in making our day so special. Mr and Mrs Dean

I have nothing but good things to say about Marcus and Tracey and Epicatering! The communication was excellent, the tasting session fantastic and on the actual day they were utter professsionals despite the pouring rain. The food was just incredible, grazing platters first and then the BBQ of burgers and salmon and chicken, with cous cous, vegetables and jackets. We did not have one complaint and only a bucketful of praise from our guests. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for catering for any event. Very impressed.

Thank you Epicatering!

We used Epicatering for our wedding last weekend and they were great! Not only did everyone thoroughly enjoy the food, with all our many dietary requests, but they were so warm and it was lovely to have them around. Marcus was great in the planning stages, helping us work out seating plans, thinking of all the details that hadn’t crossed my mind and really took the pressure off on the day with his careful pre-planning Thank you so much!!!

I worked with Marcus and his team to provide catering for our LOVEFEST festival in August. Marcus was so easy to work with, offering great suggestions and ideas and to create a superb selection of food. They provided an amazing Buffet for our guests with delicious Vegetarian and Vegan options and delicious Paella options for the evening food. They then came back the next day to provide us all with a much-needed breakfast. Living in Holland it was so great to work with someone I knew from the start I could trust with everything. Guests loved the food and the service was exceptional. Would certainly use again.

The food was perfect and his staff were brilliant. Marcus catered for 140 guests with different dietary needs with no problems at all. We can’t thank Marcus and his team enough for making our day run so smoothly (despite the weather) and would recommend these guys for any event catering. Many thanks

Marcus and Sarah catered for my bride and I, and our guests, for our wedding reception this weekend just gone. Marcus from the first point of contact right up until the day of our wedding has been nothing but an honest pleasure to deal with. Helpful, accomadating and most importantly, a superb chef, we have had nothing but praise from our guests to the quality of the catering. Nobody went home hungry, and if anything there was enough food for a post drink snack. I would highly recommend EpiCatering, and would not hesitate in using them again for a function. Thank you ever so much Marcus and Sarah, you really helped make our day special and memorable, and we really loved your food.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help on Saturday! What a day it was :) Every single one of our guests complimented the absolutely amazing food and service you provided. We have NEVER experienced professionalism and care like it at any wedding we've been to. You were just spot on with timings, flavours of all the food and making sure I had planned everything in the run up to the day. Thank you Marcus, Tracey and your amazing team. We truly cant thank you enough for being involved and part of making our day just the bestest! I will be recommending you to all my friends who are planning their own weddings currently and will pop a review on your Facebook too! Any photos we get from my photographer of your food I will send to you for advertising if you like for your website etc. Love Mr and Mrs Palmer

Eternal thanks to the fantastic Marcus and his team for making our wedding so perfect. They worked through searing heat to deliver a delicious and memorable feast for us and our guests. All dietary requirements were catered for with care and we had so many compliments about how tasty it all was. The hog roast in the evening was an absolute hit and came just at the right time! Marcus was hugely helpful throughout the planning process; helping us to select the best menu for our day and was patient and kind from start to finish. Could not recommend EpiCatering more - thank you for making our wedding as beautiful as it was.

Tom and Emily's Wedding Reception, BBQ and Desserts for 70 guests, Hog Roast for 90 guests (evening food) on 28/07/18 at Milwards Estate, Laughton, East Sussex
Marcus and Tracey provided all of the catering and drinks service at our DIY wedding at the end of July 2018. They were fantastic and we are still receiving compliments from guests on the quality of the food now; in fact, we haven’t received even the slightest criticism about any of the food, with some guests being professional chefs themselves! We had approximately 100 day guests and another 40 evening guests, with Marcus and Tracey serving a range of canapés (gingered chicken cakes are our top recommendation) before they provided a wedding BBQ, serving each table with a platter of jerk chicken, salmon fillets, finely sliced strip sirloin and stuffed mushrooms, alongside new potatoes, ratatouille and mixed greens. It was all amazing. They then cut and distributed our massive cake and prepared meat and seafood paella as evening food. This being the first time we had ever organised a large DIY party (let alone a wedding!), it was reassuring that Marcus and Tracey knew exactly what they were doing from the first moment we met them, and they helped advise and arrange suppliers for all of the boring bits that you forget about, such as tables, chairs, table clothes, glasses, etc. and helped us with the timings. They also hired waiting staff to help serve and clear tables and drinks throughout the day and provide a cash bar in the evening, with a good range of drinks at fair prices – another thing a lot of guests have mentioned. Throughout planning our wedding, Marcus was always available on the end of the phone or an email if we needed any points clarifying or sought any logistical advice. If either of us were to get married again, we would look no further than hiring Epicatering to provide all of the food. However, we have absolutely no intention of getting married again, so instead I will just recommend them to anyone looking for quality food and service from a hard working husband and wife team who really are committed to providing the best quality tasty food in large numbers (and big portions – no one went hungry!) A few friends have already asked for their contact details in case of future parties, and to try and get some of the recipe details. We certainly can’t wait for the next Epicatering event we attend. Thank you Marcus, Tracey and all of your staff for helping us put on a great show for all of our friends and family – they loved it, and the quality of your food helped make our special day even more memorable.
Lee and Ye's Wedding Reception, Canapés, Strip Sirloin, Fresh Salmon Fillets and Jamaican Jerk Chicken, served on sharing platters to the tables for 100 guests, Paellas for 140 guests (evening food) on 20/07/18 at Peeling Manor Barns, Pevensey, East Sussex
Massive, heartfelt thanks to Marcus and the whole of his team who worked so hard in hot temperatures to deliver the most amazing food for my daughter’s wedding. The sirloin was cooked to perfection and so many vegetarians went out of their way to tell me how good their risotto was. The desserts were to die for and the evening paella went down a storm! Definitely a speciality! Marcus was mega helpful and exceptionally responsive to all communications – instilled total confidence right from the outset. And all at such short notice when our original catering company went bankrupt five weeks ago. I consider it a small miracle we found you when we were in such dire straits and wish you continued success with your fantastic business.
Kat and Gareth's Wedding Celebration, canapés followed by a two-course plated dinner for 50 guests, paella served for the evening food for 120 guests, 21/07/18, Heaven Farm, Uckfield, East Sussex
Marcus and his team catered our wedding BBQ (and staffed the bar) and the food was DELICIOUS (lots of guests made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed it). The staff were brilliant as well. Marcus was a real help whilst we were planning. He was super responsive and he went above and beyond helping us out and suggesting things that we hadn't thought about. He clearly has a lot of experience catering for large events! Thoroughly recommended.

We recently hired EpiCatering to cater for our works Summer BBQ and we were so pleased with the level of service and quality of food! From the initial contact, to the run up to the end and the day itself, Marcus and Tracey were fantastic. I would highly recommend Epi Catering to everyone!

From the Mother of the Groom, Rachael and Tristan's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Barbecue and Paellas (evening food) for 95 guests on 16/06/18, Slindon Common, Arundel, West Sussex
Fantastic food and first-class service from Marcus & Tracey. I chose EpiCatering for a joint 50th/18th party for me and my daughter. We had the event at home and had approx 50 guests. From the first contact with Marcus nothing was too much trouble and he really did cater for our every need (cooking some plain chicken for my mum who is a bit fussy) Marcus & Tracey also supplied 2 waiting staff who were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they looked after me and my guests making the evening go so smoothly. I had the BBQ menu, the food was freshly made and cooked to perfection. So many of my guests have contacted me this morning to say how great the food and service was. There was nothing I would change, I recommend this company & will definitively use another time. Thanks again
Gilly & Gemma's Shared Birthday Celebration, Barbecue for 50 guests on 09/06/18, Uckfield, East Sussex
The owners of our Wedding venue, Milwards Estate highly recommended EpiCatering & we are delighted we took their advice! The food they prepared for our wedding was one of the talking points of the day. We opted to select dishes from their BBQ menu, the lamb & jerk chicken was incredible. Followed by white chocolate tart & honeycomb cheesecake for dessert which were both absolutely sublime. Marcus & Tracey are lovely people, they're clearly passionate about their craft & provide an impeccable service. My wife & I can't thank them enough.
Ollie & Charlotte's Wedding Celebration, Barbecue and Desserts for 50 guests on 26/05/18, Milwards, Laughton, East Sussex
Marcus and his super professional team were absolutely brilliant at our daughter's post wedding luncheon following her wedding day, providing us with a superb paella. His subtle suggestions and advice were invaluable, helping us with the arrangements, equipment and staff. Just wonderful. Huge thanks to the whole team.
Post Wedding Celebration, Paella for 125 guests on 06/05/18, Patching, West Sussex
Marcus and his team provided an incredible spread for our party guests - many of whom were extremely hungry rugby players - and without exception everyone loved the grub. Everything was spot on. Comms, set up, price, food, you name it. I seriously cannot recommend these guys enough. A++++++.
Ade's Birthday Party, Malaysian Chicken Curry and Hog Roast for 175 guests on 24/03/18, Medway Rugby Club, Rochester, Kent
Thank you so much for your work on the day, it was fantastic and we had a great time. The canapés were enjoyed by all, Ruth's dad and Katie loved their special FOD map plates and really appreciated the effort. The pies were delicious and everything was hot! Ruth's second pie went down a treat when the nerves had subsided slightly! People loved the desserts and numerous people have said they were the tastiest thing they had had. All of your staff were brilliant and friendly and helpful so please thank them from us.
Ruth and George's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Pies and Dessert for 143 guests, evening food for 180 guests, on 16/12/17, Trinity Buoy Wharf, London
Huge thank you for the hog roast at our wedding. Super late notice and absolutely amazing food and service, everybody loved it, the crackling was especially wonderful, highly recommended!!
Kate's Wedding Celebration, Hog Roast for 100 guests on 24/11/17, Uckfield, East Sussex
I said it might take me a few days but I hope it’s not too late to say a huge thank you for being so brilliant at our wedding last Saturday. We don’t know how you produced what you did with Storm Brian raging around you, but it was absolutely fantastic! We have had so many of our guests say how delicious the meal was, and how lovely you both were – we couldn’t have hoped for more. My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about it! So enormous thanks. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone and will have to think of another reason for a party so we can book you again! I hope you got back okay and have had a chance to recover this week. Best wishes Sally and Jason
Sally and Jason's Wedding Celebration, Barbecue for 90 guests on 21/10/17, Burpham Village Hall, Burpham, West Sussex
From the moment I spoke to Marcus on the phone I knew he was fantastic. We had support throughout the entire preparation of our wedding - nothing was too much trouble: we wanted to try a selection of the foods for our wedding so Marcus and Tracey made the trip to our venue especially so we could try some; I had no idea about crockery or glass etc.. so Marcus sorted it all and we got given great advice about how much alcohol to buy. The food was exceptional - much better than any wedding I have ever been. We had so many comments about how fantastic it was. We also had a brunch the next day which was just as amazing. I couldn't recommend Marcus and Tracey enough; they are both fantastic from start to finish.
Tim and Emma's Wedding, Canapés, Paella, BBQ and Hog Roast (evening food) for 127 guests on 07/10/17, Yoghurt Rooms, East Grinstead, West Sussex
Not sure how I could possibly write enough praise in this review for Marcus and Tracey! They absolutely made our wedding day. We had such a lovely time right from the beginning when we went over to Marcus and Tracey’s for a tasting session, we were sold instantly! Such a lovely couple and such magnificent cooking skills!!! They were both such a help through the last few weeks of panic leading up to the wedding, they both went above and beyond what was expected, helping us source bits and pieces and bringing a lot of stuff with them which wasn’t on the original spec, which massively took the pressure off mum and I, which I will be eternally grateful for. The food was spectacular, I have never been at a wedding where so many people are talking about the food non stop, everyone thought it was just incredible, especially the Paella, such rave reviews on the Paella! And the ginger chicken bites and hog roast, they went down a storm!! I am actually sad its over – I want to do it all again, and eat it all again!! Trying to think up an excuse for a party so that I can have Marcus and Tracey back for more!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!!
Fiona and Giles's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Paella and Hog Roast (evening food) for 104 guests on 16/09/17, Shardeloes , Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire
Thank you Epicatering for doing such an amazing job on our rustic wedding summer bbq.Your amazing food was matched by your friendly and warming personalities. All our guests couldn't get over just how lovely all the food was. They praised every part of the bbq and the jerk chicken was absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for being a part of our day and making sure everything ran so smoothly. Your quality and value is something that others simply can't compete with and we have passed your info on to our guests so we can all recommend you and use you again. Thanks for everything
Lara and Rachel's Wedding Reception, BBQ for 90 guests on 26/08/17, Horsham, West Sussex
Thank you so much for catering our wedding yesterday. We had such a fabulous day and thoroughly enjoyed our hog roast. We had so many complements on the food, particularly the vegetarians who loved their mushrooms (I believe one of them even asked for the recipe!). I would absolutely recommend EpiCatering to anyone looking for exceptional customer service and wonderful food. You catered for every dietary requirement (with a few last minute changes!) and it felt like nothing was too much trouble. Thank you again for helping to make our day so special. With love from Charlie and Howard AKA Mr and Mrs Todman! Xxx
Charlie and Howard's Wedding Reception, Hog Roast and Stuffed Mushrooms for 80 guests on 03/08/17, Wilderness Woods, Hadlow Down, East Sussex
Hi Guys, just an email to say thanks so much for catering our wedding. It's always hard because you choose these things without doing a trial or tasting or knowing what you guys were like. Safe to say you absolutely smashed it!! We have had so many compliments on the food and how much there was and it's all thanks to you guys! It was absolutely wonderful and the rain didn't put you off once!!
Sam and Ant's Wedding Reception, Canapés, BBQ and Dessert for 100 guests on 28/07/17, Squirrel Wood, Sittingbourne, Kent
Absolutely wonderful. EpiCatering catered our wedding in June and they were marvellous- extremely efficient and quick to respond. We had a marvellous tasting session ahead of the day and on the wedding all of the guests commented on how good the food was. Everyone was raving about the beef, some even saying it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Excellent value and lovely people. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Clare and Tom's Wedding Celebration, Barbecue for 112 guests on 24/06/17, The Yoghurt Rooms, East Grinstead, West Sussex
Marcus and his team provided us with a sublime service, both before and during my daughter’s wedding this weekend. Marcus is always courteous and does his utmost to provide for the wishes of the clients, which is something we found difficult to achieve from all the other caterers we approached. The majority of caterers have their own agenda. Marcus not only provided everything we asked to a superior degree he also did so in temperatures of 90 degrees plus in our garden! Many of our 110 guests have asked for details of his website which speaks volumes. From my first enquiry to the clearing of the site after the event, superior service, kindness, understanding and food that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Thank you Epicatering, from Mother of the bride
Harry and Danielle's Wedding Reception, Canapés, Antipasti, Italian Pulled Lamb and Dessert for 110 guests on 17/06/17, Edenbridge, Kent
Thank you so much for making our day so special. The hog roast & paella's were amazing, we had so many people compliment on it.
40th Wedding Anniversary and 60th Birthday Celebration, Hog Roast and Paellas for 120 guests on 23/07/17, East Court, East Grinstead, West Sussex
EpiCatering provided the catering for our wedding in May 2017 and provided a brilliant service. So many of the guests complimented the food and, thanks to Marcus, Tracey and the team, the whole day ran very smoothly. I'm really glad both we managed to grab a few canapés ourselves before we were whisked of for photos, they (and the paella and hog roast) were all fantastic!
Mark and Jen's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Paella, Dessert, Hog Roast for 130 guests on 26/05/17, The Reid Rooms, Dunmow, Essex
Incredible!!!! Above and beyond what a caterer should do! My husband and I took a very laid back approach to the organization of the wedding and were incredibly lucky that Marcus took it upon himself to organize most of the companies we needed for the day! He was more of a wedding planner than a caterer! We paid said companies through Marcus and he made a pack of all our invoices which he updated regularly. We were incredibly impressed and gratified before we even tasted the food but were blown away when we tasted it on the day. We chose to have nibbles followed by a hog roast (with plates of crackling served before) and 2 huge pans of Paella, seafood and vegetarian. All of this was delicious, miles above your normal wedding menu. We then had cheese plates later on which were also delicious. I could not rate this business any higher. Thank you Marcus and team!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hannah and Robert
Wedding Celebration, Hog Roast and Paella for 130 guests on 30/07/16, 80 guests for breakfast on 31/07/16, Park Farm, Bodiam, East Sussex
I can honestly say lots of people were blown away by the food. You guys smashed it. Love that the sirloin was medium and you managed to keep the salmon moist in a massive paella pan. You had quite a few chefs eating and they all loved it! We've passed your details onto quite a few people and Mycenae House have added you to the suggested caterers. Thanks so much again. The amount of food cooked definitely helped people to stay a bit sober!
Wedding Celebration, Barbecue for 120 guests, 08/10/16, Mycenae House, Greenwich, London
Marcus and his team deserve all the stars in the world! We hired them for our wedding in September, and I honestly don't think I could have done it without them. From the very first call I made, I found Marcus exceptionally reassuring and helpful. I've never experienced someone so willing to go the extra mile. In the run up to the wedding we were going through a rather difficult time, and about a month before the big day, I rang Marcus in a total stress (sorry Marcus!). From there he pretty much became our unofficial wedding planner (again sorry Marcus!). He went totally out of his way to help, hiring in all the wait staff, and even contracting in our outside rentals. He was always on the other end of the phone helping me out, and I really can't thank him enough. Thanks to him, and his exceptionally professional team, our wedding BBQ went off without a hitch. The food was delicious, people have not stopped raving about the burgers and jerk chicken! The wait staff, were exceptionally attentive and really made me feel everything was under control. Overall, if you want someone who is going to go out of their way to make your event the best it can be, someone who really cares, and delivers yummy food to boot, Marcus and his team are the ones for you! Would recommend until I was blue in the face. Thank you Marcus for everything you did, we are so enormously grateful.

Billy and I would like to express our gratitude to you and your catering company. You truly provided everything we could have ever asked for and your food is DELICIOUS!!

Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Hog Roast, BBQ and Dessert for 90 guests, 16/07/16, Arundel, West Sussex
As ever you and your fabulous team surpassed yourselves, I think we both can firmly make note that July 2016 has been an extraordinarily busy month!!! With love, gratitude and a plethora of thanks as ever, until the next time, Von x
High Sheriff of West Sussex Event, 432 guests for canapés and bubbly, 24/07/16, Slindon Common, West Sussex
We used Marcus to do the catering for our wedding. I would recommend to anyone organising a wedding that the first person you book for any part of it is Marcus. He went above and beyond in helping with the organising and flow of the day. Nothing was a problem to him and he listened to what we wanted and made it all work. And also the food was really really GREAT! One of my daughters said she wanted Marcus to cook for us everyday after the wedding because he's "properly professional" and I couldn't agree more.
Wedding Celebration, BBQ for 90 daytime guests, Bacon Baps for 200 evening guests, 21/07/16, Hove Rugby Club, East Sussex
Couldn't recommend epic catering enough. They catered for 80 guests, cooked for 180 in the evening, and came back and did breakfast the next day. Everyone really enjoyed the food, especially the Jamaican jerk chicken. Very professional service and an excellent team. Wedding Celebration, Canapés, BBQ and Dessert for 80 daytime guests, Smoked Bacon and Banger Baps for 180 evening guests, 28/05/16, Horsted Keynes, West Sussex Marcus was so great to work with. He was very clear with all the communication beforehand and really listened to what I wanted. He anticipated areas where extra help might be needed. He directed our own waitering staff and in addition to cooking a really delicious meal for 120 guests, he also chilled our wine and took away dirty dishes.. The hog roast was tender and delicious , the crackling crispy, and all accompanying sides were freshly cooked in paella pans so that the guests could see the preparation. Thank you Marcus and Tracey for a stress free catering experience ..Congrats! x
Wedding Celebration, Hog Roast for 120 guests, 11/06/16, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
We had a garden party for nearly 100 people and Marcus and Tracey handled it brilliantly. The food was fabulous (the salmon and prawn teriyaki kebabs were exceptional) and the service was very friendly and extremely professional. They looked after our guests incredibly well and dealt with all our last-minute requests with ease. We had many compliments from our guests regarding EpiCatering. We would have no hesitation in recommending EpiCatering to anyone who is looking for top quality food and service. Blair and Tamzin.
Post Wedding Garden Party, BBQ for 95 guests, 22/08/15, East Grinstead, West Sussex
At the booking stage, Marcus is friendly, polite, communicative, professional, punctual, accommodating and clearly dedicated. We have been fortunate enough to have EpiCatering cater our last four annual events and all have been a huge success. No request has proven too great and no detail too small for Marcus, who is always happy to accommodate our needs. With diversity in their menu and reasonable prices we are always happy to welcome them back. At the events Marcus, Tracey and their team are always polite, presentable and helpful to our guests. The diverse and regularly changing menu makes a nice change from the usual buffet type corporate affair, which our guests have always remarked upon and enjoyed. Their portions are generous, the food excellent, flavourful and authentic. I would wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend EpiCatering (and can't wait til our next event!).
Corporate Celebration, Carribean Pepper Pot Stew and Dessert for 100 guests, 08/05/15, Cambridge Studios, Cambridge
What a fantastic Service - August 30th with 80+ Guests: Marcus you surpassed yourself; once again a superb evening it was magnificent, the staff were incredible; nothing was too much trouble - it was a seamless production. There was laughter and happiness throughout the evening and on top of all that the food was incredible. If there were any hiccoughs, I didn't and don't know about them and I have received nothing but praise and positivity from all who attended. We shall most definitely be meeting again!! Cant thank you enough for your effortless management. Warmest regards Von - celebrating a milestone birthday in style at Danesfield
