Throughout the hog roasts, the hogs natural juices self baste the animal, emitting such smells that will drive the expectant, and by this time anticipatory, crowds delirious with hungry delight. The aromas drift leisurely around the area of the party, silkily coating the venue with a slick of anticipatory delirium. Third in line is the sound of the crackling being lifted from the carcass as a giant shelf of taste inspiring proportions. Hear the crunch and crispy crack as our chefs cut up the steaming crackling into easy to manage strips and display them in a manner befitting to the splendour of the hog which is now ready to be carved onto the gleaming silver carving tray beneath its hulking, steaming mass. The piece de resistance comes in the form of the taste. Most people have never tried it, and some have only tried it from other, less competent hog roast providers. The taste we engineer, via the natural facilitation of the pig, is simply exquisite. The meat is so soft and tender, yet infused with a natural heat that keeps the basting juices flowing around ones mouth so surreptitiously well. Combined with our side dishes and vegetable accompaniments, a hog roast from Hog Roast Catered Events is like nothing you’ve ever had before.

Of course, if pork just isn’t your thing, then fear not! We have great relationships with some of the finest suppliers of meats within the United Kingdom. The spring lamb option, where whole, fresh and lightly seasoned spring lambs are spitted and then roasted along with fresh rosemary have been one of the most successful menu options available to date. A real hit with many of our hog roast catering customers, the true beauty of lamb as an edible meat is easy to discern when observed at one of our events; as the self basting capabilities of lamb combined with the hog roasts natural marbling of fat help to re-define scrumptious. Also, we serve spitted chickens, beef and other meats according to your tastes and your desires.

Our celebrated events catering team have an expanse of catering experience behind them, with so much knowledge of food and service gained through travel and study in the culinary arena. Articulate, effective and most of all attentive, this team have many strengths which help to set us apart from our competition in this trade. First of all, their attitude and ethos form a core to both our service and how we use the feedback we get. With you as the boss in every sense of the word, the events catering team are there to discern and interpret your culinary dream, and then formulate the active response in terms of food preparation style, ingredient usage and the service styles to be used. Along with timings, the catering team will take on board any input you have, then translate that into your bespoke dining experience. Never happy to just do the job, or to do the bare minimum, the events team have been one of the pillars of our company, taking the stress away from our customers so they can relax, enjoy their own event (as, come on! Is that not deserved?) and essentially think about other things. Happy to take a back seat if you wish to dictate every aspect of the service, or equally as happy to take the reigns if you simply have other things to do or are too busy, rest assured that the organisation prior to the catered event could not be in any better hands.

Our extensive back catalogue of hog roast catering events include hundreds of garden parties, corporate functions, wedding parties, royal functions and celebrity engagements. Building from our past experiences we always try to learn from each catered service and then push this new knowledge into everything we do from that point on. Its helped us to convert countless amounts of our previous customers into friends. Friends who we see often and friends that essentially helped to make us what we are today.
