Chris, Leicestershire, 2016

“I just wanted to email to say that James and Luke were fantastic on Saturday night. We had a few technical hitches as the lights failed on the area where the hog roast was supposed to be so we had to go to plan B, but they both took it in their stride. The food was superb and everybody said it was one of the best hog roasts they had ever had, so I just wanted to say thank you to you and the team for making my mums birthday memorable. Thanks again”

“James and I wanted to send our thanks to Chris, Laura and the team! They were fabulous on Saturday and the hog just completed the evening -the guests loved it and it looked great! Also thanks so much to Laura for wrapping and hiding me a pork sandwich with all the fillings! I was extra grateful for it at the end of the night when I snook it out of the designated hiding place! It went down a treat! If we ever host an event again I will certainly be in touch and I will definitely recommend. Thank you again!”

Sarah and James, Derbyshire, 2016

“I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to email sooner – we went on holiday the week after Maxine’s party. The party was a huge success and, apparently, a complete surprise to Maxine. The food was excellent and I just wanted to thank you, and in particular Luke, for great food professionally served. I don’t know when we’ll need your services again (my 50th perhaps?) but I’ll be sure to recommend The Hog and Ox Roast Company to friends and family.”

Alan, Derbyshire, 2016


“We had an absolutely fantastic time and everyone enjoyed the food very much. James and Sarah were very professional. They should also be praised for their tolerance of my colleague’s very hungry and mischievous dogs who spent quite a lot of the day trying to get their paws on the pork! We were very fortunate with the weather of course which really put the cherry on the cake. The food was very tasty and my partner very much enjoyed the leftovers the next day! Please thank Sarah and James on my behalf. I will be sure to pass your details on to anyone organising a similar event in the future.”

“Thank you very much for the Hog Roast on Saturday. It was amazing and I don’t think my friends could believe how good everything was, it was the perfect choice for our party. Everyone was able to have as much as they wanted and we still had loads left when people got the munchies. James and Sarah were absolutely brilliant and were set up in no time and did everything themselves and didn’t need any help from us. I would recommend your service to everyone and hopefully some of my friends will be able to come to you at some point in the future. I certainly will be phoning if we do another party soon. Many thanks again you added to a great night had by all.”

Iain and Amanda, Derbyshire, 2016


“The party was a success despite the rain later on. Many people commented on the Mini Hog Roast, saying it was an excellent idea and very well done. The pork was lovely and I spent a lot of yesterday currying the remains for the freezer. James was great. He was smart, punctual and friendly with our guests. I had forgotten to tell you that it was fancy dress, so he did very well serving Oompalumpas, Romans,Monks and pirates. All very bizarre, but fun.

“I just wanted to say that both Chris and Laura were outstanding throughout their tenure and the beast itself was beautifully presented, smelt gorgeous and every last ounce was devoured by 6.00 pm. Chris cheerfully and expertly set himself up on very uneven ground in no time at all and the jovial and inclusive demeanour of both him and Laura was a highlight. I could not recommend your services more highly and would be delighted to act as a reference in any manner, including if you want potential clients to call me. Many thanks to you too for helping me out of my own last minute muddle on the salads. We could not be happier with every aspect your combined services. Many, many thanks to you and your team.”

Thank you for all your help.”

Sylvia, Warwickshire, 2015

“We had a good night. The hog roast was a break from tradition for us, it is usually catered by the tea ladies, it was very well received by club members and guests.

They arrived on time and just got on with the job of setting up, overcoming any problems with a smile. The hog itself was excellent, tasty and succulent, we received lots of compliments. At the end of service Chris and Laura packed up with next to no fuss and left everywhere tidy. If I have one complaint it is that I had no crackling! As it was so delicious I was too late to the table, preferring our guests to be fed first! Thank-you again, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company”

Gavin and Tiffany, Lincolnshire, 2014

“Dear Richard and James,

Having deciding to have a ‘do’ for my birthday on 6th July, 2014, I googled Ox roast and up sprung your company. All you had to offer sounded just what we were looking for, and without any recommendation we placed an order for a Baron of Beef, salads and puds to feed around 150 guests. From our first meeting with you we felt confident that you knew what we were expecting.  Being farmers, and having many farming friends who know their beef attending the do, the beef had to be good and plenty of it. 

All I can say is that it was fantastic.  You’d cooked it perfectly, there was more than enough, and many of our guests have come back to us saying it was ‘The best beef they’d ever eaten!’  Some went up three times for another plate full! We’d hoped it would be good but to get comments like that was far more than we’d expected, and we can only say a huge thank you to both you and your supplier.  You hit the nail on the head!

All that you supplied including the salads and yummy puddings, your service and your team were excellent and we cannot recommend the professional The Hog and Ox Roast Company enough. So thank you so very, very much for making our event so successful – it means an awful lot to us.”

Rose and Robert Cookes, Solihull, West Midlands, 2014 - letter reproduced here in its entirety

“Both ourselves and all of the guests were very impressed with the hog roast on Saturday! We’ve had friends commenting about it ever since! Thank you very much to all of you for helping with our big day celebrations… if anyone mentions a hog roast we’ll be sure to pass on your details.”
Kelly and Rich, Nottinghamshire, 2014

“We had a great time on Saturday and loved the food and thought the service you provided was excellent.

We were really impressed with the whole thing, so thank you very much.”

Hannah, Leicestershire, 2104

“More than happy, thank you! Everything was spot on and a good night was had by all. So many people commented on how lovely and tasty the pork was. Thank you!”

Julie, Lincolnshire, 2014
