ABOUT NATIVE

Native was an events business, running pop-ups and food & drink events for private client and brands between Oxford and London.

As the Corona pandemic hit in March 2020, we lost a year of upcoming events in a matter of days. We watched on Instagram how bars and restaurants in New York were switching to takeaway & delivery models and overnight we turned our business into Native Feasts At Home. We built a website and started offering weekly feasts to be enjoyed at home during lockdown. With no prep or hassle and menus with a seasonal, informal lean, they proved super popular, selling out in hours. They were and still are made & delivered by our team, keeping them and us in work and the good ship Native sailing.

Through hard work and determination we made it through 2020 and now with thousands of feasts delivered (almost 10k at the last count), we see the feast delivery model as our primary business and love that we can bring a little joy to hundreds of people each Friday. 

We now offer a weekly changing feast and other seasonal DIY catering solutions.

We still cater for select private & brand events. For more info, see our main website WWW.NATIVEFEASTS.CO.UK 

 

Chris was awarded one Michelin star whilst head chef at The Sir Charles Napier restaurant in Oxfordshire in 2012, which he kept for three years until he decided he wanted a change and left the star and restaurant behind and began to forge a path in the world of events. He has a wealth of experience working for top chefs such as Phillip Howard at the Square and Emily Watkins at the Kingham Plough as well as for premium caterers like Rhubarb, and is inspired by his classical training and time travelling in Asia and Europe. 

 

 

Greg met Chris whilst working as a sommelier at Sir Charles Napier. Before Native and working with wine, he previously managed bars in the UK and Australia whilst working as an artist & designer. He gives Native its liquid offering and is back of house on the computer and phone, keeping Native ticking.
