Hog Roast Catering

Hog Roast Catering

What we provide

Our hog roast catering is suitable for all types of events. From business events and social hog roast parties to having a hog roast wedding.  The hog roast cost can be affordable depending on the number of people you want to feed and what sides and extras you may want – so do ask about our hog roast prices. The average hog will serve around 100 people so worth considering.

Some details

What you can expect

We are different from many Dorset catering companies and especially so when it comes to Hog Roasts. A lot of hog roast companies will come to your event with the meat already cooked and sliced ready to serve to you. There is no guarantee of when that meat was cooked or if it has been in the freezer and thawed before selling on to you.

For us, it has to be fresh all the way! with full traceability of where the hog has come from – we arrive at your venue and slowly spit roast the hog for up to 6 hours. It is quite a sight and guests always want to come and have a look. The smell is amazing and we have even had guests ask if they can come and help carve!

We'll take care of it

What you don't have to worry about

We can provide hog roast as either a “pig in a bun” with sides or as part of the wedding catering main meal served to the table as an alternative to the traditional sit-down meal.

All our hog roast machines are PAT tested and included in the cost of the hog roast hire price along with the gas bottles. We will supply all disposable plates and napkins and our lovely staff will serve you along with any side orders that you choose.

Oh, and don’t worry about the weather – with our hog roast cooked under one of our gazebos if it rains we will serve the hog roast indoors for you.

Thank you Dawn for helping us make my Mother's gathering such a very special occasion. Your beautifully presented and very delicious food, your kindness, your discretion, your professionalism, and your integrity helped us achieve our desire to have a celebration of Mum's life, rather than a time of grief and sadness.

Far more than any other catering company

Jane Smith

This is the second time that we have used your company for our family's wake catering arrangements.   You truly are now like one of the family.    I cannot thank you enough for the care and consideration and time you gave to us.  It was a great comfort to us to know that you were there to take care of all the little things we hadn’t even thought about and I know that you did far more than any other catering company would have done.

Charlotte and Jamie

Very supportive, incredibly flexible with so many dietary changes to deal with.  We received so many compliments about the catering on the day.
