 Gloucester Old Spot Premium Hog Roasts

With well over 1700 hog roasts under our belt, we know how to prepare, roast and serve the perfect hog roast – succulent pork with lots and lots of tasty crackling. Our hogs are roasted slowly to perfection and are so succulent that we ‘pull’ our pork rther than ‘carve’ it!

We only use the best heritage ‘rare breed’ pigs enabling us to supply you and your guests with the highest quality and most flavoursome and succulent pork. Our favourite is the Gloucester Old Spot. Our Royal Family breed them and our top chefs adore them!

Our Gloucester Old Spots carry an extra bit of fat which helps to infuse moisture giving a superbly distinctive flavour to the meat.

Our Hog Roasts usually include

Uniformed professionals to ‘pull’ and serve at the time to suit you
Fresh soft large round baps
Bramley Apple Sauce
Disposable plates and napkins
Our own serving tables

Stuffing is extra, as we offer 3 delicious types to suit all tastes and budgets

“Once you try Gloucester Old Spot pork, you’ll turn your back on the tasteless, dried up, intensive reared pork forever.”

Derek Cooper on the BBC Radio 4 Food Programme

Roast & Deliver Hog Roast

Don’t be tempted to hire a DIY spit roaster unless you have previous roasting experience – especially with hauling a very heavy pig onto a pole! This hog roasting method is not worth the risk and just does not give the best results. Roast it for too long and it’s burnt but worse, too little and it’s under cooked. If you don’t mount it on the rotisserie properly – at worst it could fall off.

We roast our hogs using a state of the art convective cooking method which achieves even cooking temperatures for a longer period of time whilst retaining the food’s natural juices. In fact we roast up to the temperature where the connective tissues break down resulting in our pork being so tender that we don’t carve it – we ‘pull’ it! Oh yes, and there’s plenty of crackling as you can see 

A 34kg pig suitable to feed up to 80 with reasonable sized portions 

A 42kg pig suitable to feed up to 130 with reasonable sized portions 

A 54kg pig suitable to feed up to 170 with reasonable sized portions 

A 66kg pig suitable to feed up to 220 with reasonable sized portions

  

from £3.69 per person

The ‘Baron of Beef’ Roast

The term ‘Baron of Beef’ is alleged to have originated when Henry VIII was served a spit roasted double sirloin of beef and was so taken by the roast that he dubbed it ‘Sir Loin, the Baron of Beef’. Whether this is true or not, this term in Britain has come to refer to a major mass of beef.

 We are pioneers in roasting huge joints of beef. This is our take on ‘Baron of Beef’ roasts and they can be anything from a 10lb sirloin to a 200lb hind quarter – a real Henry Vlll feast!”

The rare/native breeds that we supply produce the most fantastic flavoured beef. They are all rare or traditional breeds, with the majority being Longhorn, Shorthorn, Belted Galloway, Dexter, Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Red Poll. The beef is dry aged in a purpose built ageing room with Himalayan rock salt, giving excellent texture and depth of flavour.

Our Baron of Beef Roast, would depend upon the number of guests that require feeding and your budget. We can supply a variety of cuts and sizes for any event or occasion, from a small house party to a large wedding or corporate event. Depending upon the number of your guests and your budget, we will recommend from the best cut for you from 10lbs to 200lbs.

from £9.50 per person

 

Our Baron of Beef usually includes

Uniformed professionals to carve and serve at the time to suit you
Fresh soft large round baps
Horseradish sauce and English mustard
Homemade red wine gravy
Disposable plates and napkins
Our own serving tables

However we are quite happy to tailor make your Baron of Beef and any accompaniments to your own requirements.

 

“Being beef farmers, and having many farming friends attending who know their beef, it 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! 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.” Rose and Robert, Solihull, West Midlands,
