Firstly, my apologies for the delay in submitting my feedback I had intended to do this early last week.
My feedback for The Spitting Pig Company and in particular Stuart the chef is the whole experience was ‘First Class’ from booking to meeting guest requirements everything was met, a completely seamless service.
The Hog was beautiful, succulent, tasty. All the accompaniments were outstanding. Chef Stuart, was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, he fitted into the atmosphere and really made everyone feel at ease.
A truly positive experience which helped to make my evening so very enjoyable.
Thank you so much.
with kind regards,
The event on 7th October was a great success and the hog roast delicious along with the accompaniments, salads, potatoes.
Staff were most helpful, efficient. We will recommend the company to others.
The dust is just beginning to settle after a hectic week to follow with guests.
Paul was brilliant and responded very quickly to my request for a site visit, no problem!
The hog roast was delicious, lovely meat, so tender and tasty with the accompaniments. The crackling was wonderful.
All the guests complimented me on a wonderful hog roast, the phone rang for days.
The gazebo was brilliant and added some class to the event along with the full works.
All the clearing away was completed efficiently and discretely, thank you
Paul was a pleasure to have, sociable, knowledgeable and most helpful and I hope to recommend him in due course.
We were very pleased with everything that Jon did for us, from the communication to the food itself. Very professional.
Thank you so much. I had an amazing party. Everyone loved the food and asked me who the caterers were. Adrian and Paul were so friendly and we will definitely use them again.
It was amazing!! The food was fantastic, the chef was really nice and sociable …(as well as a great chef, think his name was Paul) I can’t recommend it more. He stayed until everyone was served and the remaining food was dished up for us to have the following day!! All my guests commented on how great the food was as well as the amount.., really I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company to anyone!!!!
Thanks once again
I was on the walkers on the blue Lyke challenge and just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for turning out at such an ungodly hour and providing us with our hot breakfast.
It was appreciated so much and just hit the spot.
I will certainly bear you in mind for my next hog roast!
The event went really well thank you and Lee was a star. The pig went down very well (especially the lovely crackling).
Everyone was very complimentary!
Thanks again for everything. Highly recommended!
Have a great weekend
Good Morning Sarah,
Everything was perfect thank you! The staff and the food couldn’t be faulted, please pass on our thanks to the staff.
If we have any future events we won’t hesitate to get in touch!
Was great to meet you, everyone loved the food and service!
I will most definitely be in contact in the future. I am going to start to organise a new year’s party for 5th Jan and once I have secured a venue, I will contact you for a quote for food.
The BBQ last week was absolutely amazing. As per last year, we were very pleased with Pauls services.
His helper was really smiley young lady, the mood was amazing. The food was stunning. Sun shinning….
We will be using Spitting Pig in the future again as well as recommending wherever we go.
So sorry I have been meaning to send you a review. It was simply amazing the day we had with the Spitting Pig hosting a hog roast after our sons christening.
The ladies who hosted us were brilliant and very professional, it was a hot day too. The pork was delicious and our family and friends really enjoyed it.
Thank you so much for making the day fantastic, we ate the left overs for a few days after and it still tasted amazing.
We would certainly use you guys again.
Thank you again Caroline and John
Wow wow wow
What can I say… the pig was superb – all my guests that ate it said that it was the very best spitting pig they had ever had my 2 sons who are so fussy about pork couldn’t eat enough – my eldest took a large bowl home with him – I have been asked by 3 guests for your number and have passed it on!!! Without question we made the best choice by choosing your company and the gentleman that served it up was polite and lovely to all my guests. So thank you again for the best service and best hog roast ever!!!
Look forward to using you again
We had a lovely day and the weather was perfect, we were very lucky.
Although myself and the groom didn’t have any of the pig I’ve been told by our guests it was lovely, I didn’t see the pig arrive but I did see the staff leaving & they were very polite. It all ran very smoothly, no problems which was fab. Thank you again, we will be sure to use you again in the future, thanks.
The party was a great success, and your staff were very polite. I only had time for one roll, but my son had three! When I explained that people could go and get doggy bags there was a huge rush to get out to the pig so I presume everyone enjoyed the meat.
Wanted to say a huge thank you for the Hog Roast yesterday for our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious (and not only we say this but every one of our 75 guests!). What was even better was that everyone connected with the brilliant ‘chefs’ on the day, which despite the English weather meant everyone went away very contented.
Wonderful and would happily recommend your services to anyone else – so nice just to enjoy the party rather than worry about anything on the day – everything catered for and no washing up at the end – brilliant.
Sue and John McKeown
Everything was absolutely fantastic! Plenty for everyone and Cat and her team couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful.
Thank you so much
Sue and Phil Taylor-Jago
Just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful hog roast. So many people commented on how it was the best hog roast that they had ever had – it was cooked to perfection. I could not believe how easy it all was for us, with no mess or fuss. Just sorry we were all a bit boozy when you left – I didn’t have time to thank you properly.
Many thanks again.
Thanks for a wonderful service! We all really enjoyed the food and everything ran super smoothly. All the leftovers went down a treat the next day too.
Thanks again for everything,
Hi Sarah, thank you for your email. Great service as always, you’re all very helpful and accommodating which is much appreciated! Thank you again. Nia.
AMAZING food last night and the speed of service was absolutely first class.
Thank you so, so much for catering for us again this year.
Looking forward to my pork salad today
Have a great weekend.
Please pass on my thanks to Jemma.
We are so grateful to your team who provided our delicious hog roast on Easter Monday. Our guests were full of compliments on the quality of your food. It helped us to have the best golden wedding anyone could wish for.
Janet & Chris
Absolutely fantastic food and Cliff was the perfect host. Would recommend Spitting Pig to any anyone. 10 out of 10.
Couldn’t fault Sam, food and service was excellent.
Hi – we had a fabulous event thank you! I cannot praise you enough.
Sorry for late response completely forgot!
I found your company really easy to deal with it was easy to order what I wanted the website is easy to navigate and everyone I spoke to was very helpful, friendly and professional.
On the day the whole set up looked great and the food was AMAZING!
I have recommended you to some of the other Howdens for when they do their own trade days.
The event went very well as always.
We have used Spitting Pig for our Office Christmas lunch for several years now and Russ always provides a great service.
The food is always well cooked, hot and the canteen is left extremely clean.
Look forward to seeing you again next year.
The event went very well thank you. The lads were really friendly and helpful (despite the early start for them!), the food went down really well with the staff here at the depot and the vegetarians were very grateful for their options too. Very professional and I would recommend their service to others.
The event was absolutely brilliant and our host was magnificent. Everyone had a really good time and the food was delicious. Spot on.
Will definitely book again.
Sam delivered the pig to us with the machine … and it made our weekend! Machine was easy to use, Sam explained to us how to prepare the pig, and when we ate it, it was delicious… Sam came back to pick up the machine later on Sunday so the whole experience was nice and easy. Sam was always contactable and flexible with us. Don’t change anything, it was perfect
Yes all went well, very professional team and the guests complimented the food.
The team were absolutely amazing. A big thank you to them all. We hope to have them back for future functions!
Good afternoon Sarah,
Sarah, the pig was absolutely fantastic, appreciated by all. The two gentleman that set up and served were very friendly, accommodating and patient with talks running over etc.
We would definitely use your company again.
Many thanks again for a fantastic service that really was well received and talked about by all the staff.
The event went really well. Diane was amazingly organised, tidy and punctual. The pig was one of the best we have had so far so the – keep doing what you guys are doing
I would not hesitate booking with you guys in the future!!!
Just a quick email to thank you and the guys that cooked for us on Sunday 26th October at the conservative club in Stopsley.
Everyone said how great the food was, and how helpful and efficient your cooks were.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and we would not hesitate to use you again, and recommend your company to our friends.
Rod & Janet Clark
Thanks for the mail, just to say that John the chef on the day was lovely, very friendly and informative and the food was fantastic.
The event went really well thanks for asking.
I’ve already dropped a note to John @ the Lanarkshire branch to extend my thanks but the same goes for the stay at your HQ. The whole thing from booking to menu selection and on-the-day coordination was very professional.
John and the team put on a cracking event and helped us by managing the timing as people were arriving and floating around.
The food was of a very high quality and everyone enjoyed it. I suspect there may be a few follow on bookings as a result.
So thanks once again, we will be back in the future!
The event was brilliant and Kat and the male who attended were amazing, they did a very professional service and were extremely accommodating and friendly. I sadly could not stay for the event as I travelled home and I came back on the Sunday night to a plate of food waiting for me in the fridge that they had very kindly prepared for me.
I will most definitely recommend the company to all family and friends, the food was amazing and was lovely to watch it get fully prepared on site.
Yet again, a massive thank you from the whole of 156 Provost Company.
Thanks, the event was a great success.
The guys were fantastic, they were really professional and very helpful all day.
Overall I am extremely happy with their work and the food was amazing!
iQ Student Accommodation
I would like to say again how we enjoyed Sunday and thank you for all your hard work and your Family. The food was fantastic and so much left that we will be eating pork up to Christmas! it was all fab.
Grateful, thanks once again and we will certainly recommend you and if we ever have another big party, I will be in touch!
We enjoyed the Hog Roast very much on Friday thank you. Apologies I can’t remember the name of the person who came along but he was very efficient, helpful and polite, making it pretty effortless for us.
We would like to say a very big thank you to Ken for the excellent pork and service on Saturday. The meat was very tasty and our guests all enjoyed the day.
Thank you again
Very happy to give feedback. It was a superb evening and your Chef did an amazing job. From set up to clear up it was a well run, professional operation, looked amazing and Paul was both charming and helpful with information about the pig (Charlie) and the cooking process. I’m so pleased we went with your company and would highly recommend you. The food was gorgeous, with many coming back for more and loads left for scrummy lunches and dinner the following day. Thank you.
Very smooth and efficient delivery, thank you. My guests were most impressed, and enjoyed themselves.
The event went well thank you and your service was lovely.
Yes it was a great success thank you, the food was amazing everyone loved it, the guy who served it was very helpful and I would definitely use your company in the future.
Thank you for sorting at short notice.
We had a great evening! Paul Apey was particularly helpful, courteous and informative. We will definitely be using you again.
The delivery, set up and serving of the hog roast was handled very professionally and the two person team did a fantastic job for our clients. They arrived in plenty of time for the start of the event and obviously know what they are doing. It looked great and tasted fantastic. Our customers were very happy and I would highly recommend them in the future.
Many thanks for everything.
Thanks for your email.
We had a great time over the weekend, and the hog roast time was a highlight.
The team arrived on time, and were a pleasure to work with – accommodating a slight change of plan because of negotiations with the venue with a smile! This was the third hog roast of the summer for me personally, and I’m sure it was the tastiest, so thank you! I received many positive comments from our delegates.
What can I say great service and a fantastic hog. A big thank you for a another super event.
See you next year.
Pam & Ted
We really enjoyed the pig as did the street party!
It was easy to cook and serve, cleaning up was straightforward. Communications with yourself were clear and easy. Advice when pig was delivered was easy to follow as I had never cooked a pig before.
Thanks for all your help.
Steven M Palmer
Hired for my 21st birthday party. Kept me informed every step of the way – a service you don’t usually get with most companies. The food was delicious, the two caterers were friendly and professional and even provided a vegan option when asked. Will definitely be using this company again and would recommend to anyone!
We used the service last weekend for a pub themed day – everything went as agreed, and all our guests totally enjoyed the day. Highly recommended, we will be using Spitting Pig again soon.
CATRIONA’S 21ST BIRTHDAY, EDINBURGH
I just want to say a huge thank you to you and your husband, and Jimmy and the team for providing such a fantastic meal for Catriona’s party on Saturday. The food was really lovely and we have had so many comments and compliments from our friends.
I really appreciated all your help beforehand, and on the night was very grateful for how accommodating, helpful and flexible the team was. Can you pass our thanks on to everyone?
With many thanks again to you all,
Apologies for not doing this sooner!
Our wedding was a great success and I can not fault Adrian and his team what so ever! They arrived with huge smiles and served up in perfect time, all my guests have commented on how good the food was and most admitted going back for seconds!
Charlotte Seaton (Parrott)
Many thanks for your e-mail.
The service on Sunday was fantastic – think all of the pig was eaten and everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed it. It was served on time and the team were very good at checking with the Bride about the vegetarian dish (making sure all that needed it had it before it ran out) and on when to stop serving.
Both Maria and myself were very impressed and I will certainly be recommending your services going forward. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to work together again.
Yes, our event on Friday all went to plan thank you. The hog was great and the hog team were extremely friendly, approachable and professional. A great service all in all.
We are so very pleased with the great food that was put on by Adrian and Paul. They both cared so much about their preparation, and smiled constantly. I really cannot sing their praises high enough, they are a real credit to your Company.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone else.
I wanted to say a big thank you to you and Nick for such a fab hog roast for our party. The food was amazing (especially the crackling – which everyone is still talking about!). Nick was also brilliant and as far as I was concerned, all went smoothly. I hope he thought so too! I will pass on your details to the venue so that if anyone else hiring it for a party wants a hog roast, they can get in touch with you. You’ll come highly recommended.
Many thanks and best wishes,
It was an amazing day.
Terry and his birds were perfect. We learned a lot and I am no longer afraid of owls
The food was great. Succulent and well prepared. It looked so delicious. People from around the village dropped in and said they’d seen many hog roasts but none as good as this one the salad was good too.
I’ll definitely use Spitting Pig again.

I’d like to thank the two gentleman who catered our event on the most rainiest day of the year so far – they had a big smile despite having to deal with 120 hungry people in the downpour! They were lovely, the service was wonderful and they served the best hog roast I have ever tried! My husband is a huge hog roast fan, so him giving Spitting Pig a 10/10 is really says something!
All our guests have complimented us on our food during and after the wedding, so thank you so much for catering our day and I would certainly use you again for any future events.
I’d recommend Spitting Pig to anyone!
Thank you all for all your hard work.
Helena and Kieran
Our day was a great success.
The hog roast was fantastic, the ladies that managed the hog roast and served were polite and lovely. Everyone loved the food and trimmings and we ate the whole pig with nothing left but bones! This was our first hog roast experience as a host and would definitely use the Spitting Pig again. Thanks Guys!
I just wanted to send a note to say a big thank you for the hog roast yesterday (DRS UK Summer BBQ)
Paul, our caterer, did a brilliant job and was so friendly and helpful. The food was great and enjoyed by all. Please pass on our many thanks to Paul, we will definitely be recommending him.
It was really good and we were impressed
We were very happy with the professional service and high quality of food provided.
We would definitely recommend your company to others and consider using your services again in the future.
Captain Thomas Brown
Would recommend you to anyone who was doing a function and wanted a hog roast, everyone complimented it, the guys couldn’t have done any more if they tried. Very efficient, helpful and friendly.
We are in Cornwall thinking about what a fantastic day we had and wanted to email you to thank you and your team! The food was amazing and we had lots of comments from guests to say how much they enjoyed it. I think it speaks for itself that people came back and finished the rest of the hog!
The day couldn’t have been any smoother and with the canapés by the lake along with the hog roast later on it was absolutely perfect. Please pass on a massive thank you to your professional and friendly team.
We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family.
Ed & Danielle
The event was a huge success, thank you. The hog roast went down so well and myself and my client had so many compliments from guests on how good the food was and how excellent the quality was. Your Chefs were fantastic onsite – very friendly and easy to work with. Please pass on my thanks again to them both. I actually just passed on your contact details to one of the guests so you may hear from them shortly.
Thanks again for everything and I will be sure to be in touch if we have any other suitable enquiries!
All the best,
Just a quick line to say a very big Thank You to you all for provided such amazing food yesterday, your professionalism and respect has been mentioned by all along with how great the food tasted, even the vegetarian option went down extremely well with the carnivores. We will definitely be using you in future and will recommend you to anyone of our partners who may be arranging a similar event.
Thanks Spitting Pig,
Rachel and her team were wonderful. We had a large proportion of children and vegetarians and she was very helpful in designing a menu that suited all our guests. The food was delicious and I lost track of how many people said it was the best crackling they ever had!. We were worried that we’d have loads of leftovers as a number of people dropped out late… but I was surprised to see very little left. It seems that quite a few of the guests went back for seconds and thirds Will definitely be recommending the Spitting Pig to friends.
Thank you so much for making our event such a roaring success.
The event was a complete success and enormous fun for all involved. The Hog Roast that was provided, honestly made the finishing touch to our ‘game of thrones / medieval theme’. Cliff was absolutely brilliant being both a highly organised and polite individual. Not only was he (and his helper!) punctual and effortlessly compliant with our security requirements, it was clear that he had been working tirelessly all day to provide us with the best experience.
I also think that Spitting Pig in general were brilliant. Effortless organisation on your part: especially at such short notice. Not to mention that the price was extremely reasonable.
I would thoroughly recommend the use of Cliff and your company to anyone looking for a Hog Roast. We will certainly be using you again. Please pass on my thanks to them both, I look forward to working with you again soon.
Just wanted to express my thanks to you and your team for the splendid service at last week’s Plantworx. Having high quality standard hospitality makes a real difference to the overall visitor experience and helped the Cat team create a really welcoming atmosphere. Your team were professional and unflaggingly friendly, even during the inclement weather of Tuesday! How you kept up your energy levels, particularly considering your daily commute from Llangollen, is astounding; pigs may not fly but Spitting Pig is certainly super-charged!
Thank you for all your hard work and I hope to work with you all again soon.
It was a great event and very well done by the Spitting Pig team.
We are were very happy with everything. I am sure that you will get more business out of this, we have several friends with BIG Birthdays over the next couple of years and many will want to have something catered on the day.
So no feedback except to keep doing what you do!!
Everything went very smoothly and the food was fantastic.
Becky, Sandhurst Wedding
The evening was a great success and all I heard was praise for the Spitting Pig – thank you very much.
Yes the event was a great success and I would like to say a big thank you to your two guys who attended.
They were both great and made the event run as smoothly as it could have. Many thanks!
Just thought I would get in contact to thank you for the great hog roast and all the hard work you put into my event last weekend. The hog roast went down very well and everyone commented on how lovely it was. It was a great success and we will certainly be contacting you again next year if we want another roast.
The event on the 27th was a great success, thank you.
The professionalism of Barnaby helped greatly.
He communicated with us prior to the event. Stopped by the morning of the party. Explained how things would be set up and how the hog roast would be served and looked after us and our guests throughout the evening.
There was an abundance of food, which everyone enjoyed and complimented us on.
I would not hesitate to recommend Spitting Pig to any of my friends and would definitely book a hog roast again for any future party I hold.
Many thanks for everything.
Received the wheels today. Thanks very much that was really fast and great service.
I would just like to say the whole event from start to finish was a success and I will recommend your company to anyone who wants to do an event. The 2 guys couldn’t have been more helpful or efficient if they tried. They were a credit to your company; if I ever need to do anything like this again I wouldn’t hesitate in contacting yourselves.
It was a lovely day thank you all!
P.S. Roast chicken, Hog and trimmings went down a storm.
I thought the little canapes were superb and Stevie was a fantastic host.
Everyone was so impressed with the main meal (and chipolatas!) and would happily recommend you to colleagues as a result of service.
A job well done and a reputation well earned!
It’s Sandra here, it was my house you came to on Saturday.
The hog roast was fantastic and the vegetarian chilli was a real hit too with my sister-in-law who is the vegetarian, but a few other people tried it and everyone said it was great.
We have absolutely no complaints about any of the food and the staff were very friendly.
Thank you very much for your email. Everything was wonderful.
The catering was fab. All of our guests enjoyed the food. The desserts were a definite hit, especially the chocolate torte :-).
All made lovely comments about the service and the food.
We would like to give you, Paul and all of your staff a massive thank you for everything and for helping to make our day special.
If we ever host a big event again we will definitely be using Spitting Pig and will definitely be recommending you to anyone who needs a caterer.
Thank you so much again.
Kind regards and best wishes

Just a short note of thanks from Trevor, Steven and myself to you and obviously Alex.
It was great to have Alex on site at Perth on Sunday to teach us how to “Roast a Hog” he was a really good and informative teacher and the support he gave us on the day was excellent. His help was commented on by my Managing director as we had been let down by some agency chefs and he carried on beyond what we would have expected from a supplier.
Please extend my gratitude to Alex and I am more then happy to act as customer reference or help with support please do not hesitate to call.

I had to let you know what a wonderful day Matthew and his helpers gave us on Friday. We had a great day; food was delicious and service was good. Please thank him and his crew.
It was outstanding! I will certainly reserve again next year.
Orange Business services
The directors and staff wish me to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful function at our Holborough site on Saturday. The food was superb and the staff were efficient, polite and worked so hard. So please say a big thank you to them.
I am sure that should we require catering in the future you would be the first point of call.
Again thank you!
I have been passed your details by my colleague Carol who booked your services for our Firewalk in London last week. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! The food was fantastic and the guys who worked the event were really friendly and easy to work with. Overall, we were very impressed with the services and would definitely use you again and recommend you to others. I will be sure to write this all down on the feedback form you have provided and send it back as soon as possible.
Another minor thing – the council came along on the day and were totally happy with all the health and safety.
Thank you ever so much
Event Fundraiser, Springboard for Children
I just to say thank you for the catering you have organised for our Summer party. Everyone was very impressed with the food and the staff were great as well.

Thank you so much to you, Matthew, Ben and the girls, for helping make Don’s 50th a very special occasion. The food was excellent quality and extremely tasty, and so much of it was made up fresh on site in the morning. I understand that lots of our friends came up for seconds (the sign of a good feast). We found Ben’s 8 year’s scouting experience tremendously helpful in putting the Gazebos/tables etc in the right place, and he even checked the shadows to ensure that everyone would be seated comfortably in either shade or moderate sunshine.
We were also grateful for Ben and Matthew’s help in organising the drink/setup of the cake etc.Your young waitresses were extremely pleasant and courteous to our family/friends, and this made all the difference to ensuring we had a successful hog roast.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone else wanting a professional, successful and happy event. Thank you to all of you.
Anne and Don Cameron
Just a quick email to thank your team for the wonderful job they did on Saturday. Wasn’t easy for the guys as the venue was downstairs but they still managed to present the prize specimen to the amazement of many! We’ve never before had unprompted feedback on the food but it really was enjoyed by everyone – vegetarians included (delicious chilli!).
I didn’t take the gentlemen’s name but I’m guessing the head chef? He really was fantastic and a great asset to spitting pig!
Putney Lawn tennis club
We would just like to thank Spitting Pig for providing excellent food and service for our leaving party at Putney Lawn tennis club on the 4th September.
We would also like to express our special thanks to Anthony who is a credit to your company. He was efficient, flexible, positive and well organised. In addition he is just a nice bloke who is just what you need when you are moving house and up to your eyeballs in stress. Please pass on our thanks to him. I understand the club is already looking to re-book the Spitting Pig and we will certainly be using you for our 40th in a year or so.
I would be grateful if you could acknowledge that you received the email as I want to ensure that this thank you is given.
All the best Michelle and James Greening
Just a quick note to say thank you very for Friday night.
The chef’s were excellent along with the food. It really added to a great night and a really special Christmas party for all our staff.
We will not hesitate in recommending using you again.
Dear all at Spitting Pig,
We have been meaning to write to you for months!
This is to say a big thank you for a supper, organised for Nathan and Sarah’s wedding at Colin Godmen’s Farm (near Danehill in Sussex) on September 1st last year.
We can’t get over how well the whole day went. You made us feel relaxed and I think we unwound enough to actually enjoy it! We had so many compliments about the food and the service (‘relaxed’, ‘friendly’, but ‘efficient’ were words often used) that we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else that wanted a caterer.
Hope you have a prosperous New Year!
Phil and Anne Kelly
