Sunshine Brings Record Bookings For Hog Roast Company

Mike Berry, MD of is delighted with the record number of bookings during the recent prolonged spell of hot weather.

“Although the recent heat wave has brought in a record number of bookings for us I think the other really positive thing that has come to light from the feedback we are getting from people who have recently booked a hog roast is that how much they have actually enjoyed trying a different type of catering for their event. We do usually associate hog roast with outside summer events but in reality a hog roast can be done throughout the year.”

“People want something different these days. Their standards are much higher than they were 5 -10 years ago plus they want the “WOW” factor for their guests. The beauty about a hog roast is that it’s a great social event. People can see the hog being roasted and from the feedback we are getting people actually prefer simpler foods produced with the highest quality ingredients. Our company is based on sourcing the highest quality locally produced free range meats and other food stuffs such as breads and vegetables from our network of farmers. Guests can be 100% assured we only use the finest produce.”

Bookings in the early couple of years of setting up the company were much slower and Mike puts this down to the fact that hog roasts were not really understood by those wanting an outside caterer. “When we first set things up things were much tougher. People were used to the more traditional catering set up. But those who gave us a try have never been disappointed. In fact one of our biggest sources of business is referrals and repeat bookings which in my mind shows people love them. Not only are they something completely different but they also offer amazing value for money. The do-it-yourself option including meat costs less than £4 per head – you can’t even get desert for that from most other caterers.”

The English Hog Roast Company can cater for 30-300+ guests and can provide a wide range of services such as hire of the roasters to full blown “hands-off” catering.

“We pride ourselves at being flexible and can cater for virtually every size of event and budget. We do lots of weddings, birthdays, private functions and corporate events. We have been really lucky to have worked with some huge brands recently including Tesco, Swallow Hotels, The National Trust, and The University of Cambridge. We specialise mainly in traditional hog roasts, spit roasts and cover London, Hertfordshire, Cambridge and the whole of Essex and are prepared by arrangement to work wider afield.”
