A very good morning to all of our blog readers, I’m in Weybridge
at the moment and I can’t wipe the smile from my face. Just been contacted by
an old work colleague from decades past – completely coincidently – who’s in
need of catering for his Wedding. You couldn’t script the timing of my being in
Weybridge any better. Funnily enough his Dad was also in the business of hog

Desserts. We’re providing some free range chicken and lamb that we’ve just
acquired from the local butcher; it’s freshly bought today and looks fit for a

hog roast sandwiches, spit roasted chicken sandwiches and barbecued burgers and
sausages for the guests. I think I’m suffering from temporary deafness but
aside from that it was a very enjoyable night and the music wasn’t half bad.
That’s probably the 4th or 5th time
I’ve catered at a festival this year. Seems to be a growing trend to have a hog
roast at large festivals and it’s great to be outside and feeding thousands of
Why not give us a call if you’re having a wedding or musical
festival and need catering for the event? We have competitive prices and a
