frequently asked questions
How long is the cooking time?
An average pig takes about 6 hours to cook, although we do not need to be at the venue for all of that time. The proven method we use allows us to prepare everything else whilst the hog is cooking.
How many people can you cater for?
The number really is unlimited. We have catered for parties as small as 25 and regularly around 150 people. Your chosen serving style will decide the portion size. Just one of our hog roasting machines allows us to cater for up to 300 people. If you want to serve more guests, we'll increase our number of machines.
Are we limited to pork?
No. Although great tasting roast pork is a passion of ours, we are happy to serve vegetarian alternatives or other roasts of your choice. Turkey and gammon are often favourites during the festive season, while our gourmet BBQs go down well in the heat of the summer .
Do we have a 'meat only' option?
Yes. We are happy to provide a meat only option if your chosen venue is responsible for the rest of the catering. We will cook the pig to complement the other services on offer.
How much does a hog roast cost?
Each occassion has different requirements, but we are confident that we offer you more for your money without resorting to tricks such as charging extra for salads. Get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and we'll give you a personalised quote. Our prices are not only reasonable - and normally better than our competition - but we have a menu to suit any budget or occassion. Look out for our special offers on our website, twitter and facebook.
Are the sample menus fixed?
No. Our sample menus are there to give you an idea of what to expect and we will take on board your input. Some people like to make an odd change, most people stick to the 'house hog roast' which provides the best value for money.
Are there any hidden extras?
We don't like to give you any surprises, so we include the price of cutlery and crockery in our quotes. Informal events prefer disposables whilst a formal occassion may prefer real crockery and cutlery. Just tell us which you prefer. Some companies will give you a cheap quote but then bump the price up by offering you salads as an extra. We don't believe in doing that, so we include them in the price of our hog roast buffets and formal menus.
How do I book a hog roast?
Contact us to see if your chosen date is available. Don't leave it too long as the popular dates don't stay free for long. Once you have set a date, we can arrange the menu and payment.
