Barkham is where we call home and there’s no better place to live or hog roast in. We might not have the thriving high streets and night life of other large towns and cities but what it does have it a character and a great load of history to its name.
The place gets its name from Old English, from when it was known better as ‘Bercheham’, which translates to “birch home”, an obvious reference to the vast number of birch trees which can be found throughout the parish, Windsor Forest particularly. At other times it had also been known as ‘Barcombe’ and ‘Berkham’, but the current name seems to be staying put for now.
Another historical point is that King Edward III once used the income generated from Barkham Manor to pay for Windsor Castle to be rebuilt. In fact, the roof of Westminister Abbey was created using timber from, where else but here!
Today the parish remains a relatively pristine place, rural for the most part, with woods and farms aplenty. That bodes well for us as hog roasters. With so much farmland about it makes our life a lot easier when finding regional produce to use for our catering creations.
Because we’re one of the few caterers that call Barkham home and place an emphasis on sourcing out ingredients from the surrounding areas.
