    This can change depending on guest numbers but on average it takes a minimum of an hour to serve all guests from first service.
  • How do you serve the hog roast?
    We serve our food in a buffet style. We have a serving table where your guests can collect their plates and rolls along with any cutlery and sides. I will then serve your guests ensuring a smooth flow without the lengthy waiting times. I normally pre-carve the hog ready for service time, this ensures an even quicker service for your hungry guests! If you would like to display the hog as much as possible, please let me know when booking your hog roast, I can then carve and serve for each guest individually.

    We are with you for roughly 3 hours from when we first arrive. This includes setting up, serving and packing away.

    No. Our hog roasting machine is powered by gas and we have battery powered lights.

    We only need an area of 3m x 3m (roughly the size of a regular gazebo) and we can organise the serving table and roasting machine to however suits your needs. See example setups below
  • What happens if the weather isn't great?
    We will still ensure you have great food! We will bring a gazebo if there is predicted rain, if we are experiencing windy weather it may be necessary to put a wall up on the gazebo as the wind can affect the flames that keep the hog hot.

    Absolutely. We can have the roasting machine inside. However, due to health and safety regulations the gas bottle must remain in an outdoor space.

    Our roasting machines run on gas, and we have battery operated light in case of low light. The only thing we ask for is a friendly face and maybe a drink if it's a hot day!
