Heroes of Belvoir Paul McCormack Catering Manager

Paul is the Catering Manager at the Engine Yard at Belvoir, responsible for operations in The Fuel Tank, The Balloon Bar and any external events which pop up throughout the year.

Happy returns

A decade ago, Paul was Head Chef at the Castle for 10 years before dropping in now and again to help when times were especially busy. He returned to Belvoir earlier this year as the Catering Manager.

No two days are the same for Paul in his role at the Engine Yard. One day he might spend his time supporting staff in the restaurant, the next you might find him at meetings discussing future events or working with suppliers to continually get the best quality ingredients for our resturants.

The Engine Yard

Paul has known the Duchess for around 20 years and recalls her original conversations about developing something like the Engine Yard: “to see it come into fruition and to be part of developing it for the future makes me very proud.”

For visitors wanting to experience the Engine Yard, Paul recommends visiting The Fuel Tank and The Balloon Bar to sample their delicious local food and even try the latest addition to the gin bar – Belvoir Castle’s very own gin.

Once a hard day’s work is done

Once Paul is home from a busy day he likes to spend time with his young family and going on bike rides to clear the cobwebs.
