Frequently Asked Questions

Booking a caterer for your event for the first time can be a bit daunting. Browse our FAQs below or contact us with any other queries. We’ll be happy to help.​

What is the estimated cooking time for a Hog Roast?

A Hog Roast takes approximately 6-7 hours to cook perfectly depending on the size of the pig and the number of diners we are catering for.

How far do you travel?

Normally within a 25-mile radius of our base, but we are really flexible and do please ask – we are here to provide you with a very professional and helpful service.

Do you have any provisions for wet weather?

YES, we will bring our own 3×3 metre gazebo to cover ourselves against any unwanted weather.

How long do you serve for?

As long is as necessary, we only leave when you have finished with us.

This very much depends on the type of function, but rest assured we will only leave when everyone has been fed and is totally satisfied.

What about leftovers?

Any un-served meat can be carved off and left for you if you so wish

Do you provide a site visit prior to my function?

Where at all possible yes! This enables us to meet you personally and ensures that on the day you enjoy your party or function. Just leave the rest to us!

Are references available?

Absolutely – Don’t be afraid to ask! Copies of thank you letters and clients you can contact are readily available.

Do you need access to electrical power?

YES. Can you please provide us with an electrical power point. Just the basic household one is fine. We will bring an extension lead so distance is not a problem.

For larger public events we supply our own generator

What is the width of your roasting machine, just to make sure we have good access?

Our machine is designed to fit through a standard doorway or garden gate.

Do you provide staff?

We always supply a fully qualified Chef (dressed in full whites) and an assistant to serve.

The answer is as many as you would like. Typically we cater for between 50 and 300 guests dependent on whether it is a small garden party or a larger corporate event

Will there be enough meat to go around?

Always. We always bring a larger hog than is needed and we also bring extra buns too, so if some of your guests want to come back for seconds – no problem.

What about Health & Safety issues and Public Liability Insurance?

All our staff have the appropriate Food Hygiene Certificates and our company has the necessary product and public liability insurance in place. (Copies are available upon request)

How does payment work?

We require a 50% deposit to confirm the booking.

We will contact you at least 14 days prior to your function to discuss final numbers and precise timings and at this point the final payment then becomes due
