epic.FOURTEEN - Bar & Catering Feedback

Recommended Posts

As always, please leave your bar and catering feedback here during the event (or speak to the catering team) if you have any feedback, positive or negative, so it can be picked up during the event.

 

If you do have any complaints, then please do tell us, and the Kettering team will also be monitoring the forums during the weekend, so we can fix things during the event, rather than reading about it afterwards.

I hope they are making them burgers they made at epic.13. Sweet mother of god they were delicious. I think they put cocaine in them, not that I'm complaining...

 

Oh and the chilli con carne. The catering was probably my favourite part of last year.

i've had the good fortune to start early at the bar, and must admit that both of the light and medium ale taste absolutely terrible, i love my real ales, but those are probably the worst i've ever drank, they lack flavour are flat and in the kindest possible way taste like they were scooped out of the pond at the back, i appreciate the effort that went into adding these drinks to the menu, but did anyone taste them before or did they just go for the cheapest available. 

 

i will be avoiding these for the rest of the event unless they're changed and all be it i rarely ever suggest someone listen to my opinion, i do advise you to avoid these as well, its not worth it.

Sorry you feel that way, certainly those two are ales we've had for a few events now, it's the darker one that is new for this event. It's definitely not about going for the cheapest, it was an intentional decision to support a local brewery by the venue and the event and I'm sure the Kettering team will monitor the feedback.

 

Being a real ale and all of the factors that can change when things are cask conditioned, it may be the batch, temperature or that it's not had long to vent/settle having arrived today...

I am sorry you are not happy with our real ales, we always like to use our local micro brewery and they have always proved popular and sold well at previous events.

 

As a bitter drinker you may like to try, as an alternative to the cask ale, Doom Bar or Bombardier, these are for sale in bottles behind the bar, just ask the bar staff they are always help.

Thanks for the feedback and supporting our catering service.  To make sure the breakfasts are hot enough, chef will cook off smaller amounts at a time, this may mean some of you may have a slight wait while we cook things fresh so please be patient.  This will also apply to the main menu throughout the day.

I like the above^ - I personally would rather wait for something hot, than be able to start eating ASAP just to have something that's been sat on hot holding for a while...

Quite disappointed that the meat lasagne had run out by 7 :( do they realise they still need to serve for 3 hours.

Also there was no Mayo for my cheesy chips :/

Breakfast was good though, glad I preordered :)

Had sausage roll for breakfast and a burger and chips for dinner today (Friday). The chips were spot on but the burger was stone cold so more heat needed on those. The sausage roll was spot on and definitely filled a very empty spot!

Sorry that some of you have experienced cold burgers this evening, we are topping up the catering station regularly to try and prevent this from occurring.

 

Please ask the catering staff for sauces if there are none out, we have plenty in stock and the empty bowl may just have gone unnoticed. Thanks :)

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
