Our Story

The old Acru Works in CheadleThe old Acru Works in Cheadle
The Old Acru Works

Epicurean Kitchen

Built in 1896, The Old Acru Works was originally a stable block, followed by a munitions factory during WWII, and in the 1950's bought by a British manufacturing company. Still owned by the same firm today, the building operated as a precision engineering company until the Millennium, the building stood empty until 2016

Faced with the decision to demolish or redevelop, the owners have lovingly restored the building to its original glory. Red brick walls complement outstanding workmanship in joinery and woodwork. The industrial features and character of the building meld with modern elements to make for a gorgeous welcoming space to be enjoyed by all.

The Epicurean Kitchen was born from our desire to bring a fresh, fun, foodie vibe to Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme and surrounding areas, coupled with the ambition to revitalize the building into a flexible events space.

A celebration of an architectural gem brought back to life and food in all forms!

Coming Soon

We are excited to announce that we have been working on a whole new range of alternative events and collaborations.

Once our site redevelopment is completed in Autumn 2022, we will be able to host much larger groups. And with the additional event space on our first floor we can’t wait to invite you to:

Pilates & Prosecco
Bums & Brunch
Burlesque & Bellinis
Life Drawing & Liberation
