The red-brick laden county of Warwickshire lies in the heart of England, protected and flanked on all sides – ensuring its certain status as a land-locked county. Famed for its ancient forest and natural beauty, the nature and role of Warwickshire has changed dramatically in the recent centuries which have passed.
In Belsey there is evidence of a once leafy and sleepy sort of place, transformed into an industrial regional power-house.
Travel the short distance with a prok and stuffing roll in your hand to Coventry in order to witness one of the strongest industrial sectors that Britain had at one time.
When we serve our hog and spit roast catered food, it is clear that the people of the Warwickshire region love it.
This is due to an organic link to the important aspects of family life. Working hard through the Industrial Revolution and continuing to do so ever since, the people of Warwickshire know the importance of meal-times; which is why they love it when the food exceeds their expectations. Which ours always does.
Travel to Alderminster and Stoneleigh in order to host your hog and spit roast catered event and you are in for a real treat – as this area is stunningly beautiful, as is the case with the ancient Forest of Arden.
The Forest used to occupy a huge amount of territorial area within Warwickshire.
However, with the increased levels of industrialisation in the area, the majority of this was cut up and utilised for fuel in order to power Britain’s industry into the stratosphere.
Blackheath is a lovely place for a corporate event – excellent for sealing the deal with a hog and spit roast event – at any time of the year, indoors or outdoors.
Each of our locally sourced, British hogs takes between three and four hours to roast, and can feed between two and three hungry mouths.
