Hog Roast Feast

Basically any excuse is a good excuse for a hog roast….. that’s what the evidence suggests.

    Hi Chris,
    We had a great night Thank you and again, the food was amazing!
    The crackling is just too good to be true and I am only annoyed I didn’t eat more before it vanished!
    Thank you and your staff again for all your hard work. Honestly I could not recommend you highly enough and hope to have you cater for us again in the near future, maybe even next time stay for the party!
    Thanks again.

  • Major Birthday party in Straffan, Co. Kildare 27.07.2011

    Dear Chris

    I am just back in the office today.  Again thanks for the great work that you and your team did for the party.  It was a great success and many people said the food was great.  I appreciated the extra help provided, above what was agreed, particularly with the serving of the desserts.  But in general the overall professional approach and the quality were highly appreciated.

    Best wishes

  • Wedding in Bray 03.09.2011

    Dear Chris

    Thank you so much for the fantastic food and service for our wedding reception.  Everyone was commenting on what a good idea a pig roast was for a wedding and how good the food was. I loved how everyone got to go and check out the pig (we have quite a few photos!).

    From start to finish, the day was a success and you and your staff were a huge part of that. You made sure everything ran smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about anything at all! The pork was delicious and the sides and salads and dessert was fantastic as well. Everyone was raving about the potato daphinoise as well.  The small touches like bbq sauce made all of my American friends at the wedding very happy and the cheese plate and the afters sandwiches kept everyone going to early the next morning.

    I know we asked for more complicated table service, but everything went really well and the service was excellent. Great food and great service, all at a very reasonable price.


    Thanks again for making our reception a success.

    Kind regards

    Anna and Alan

  • Jenny organised Eamon’s party and got us to roast a Lamb = Happy Birthday :) 10.09.2011

    Apologies for the delay in sending you this mail but I just wanted to say thank you so much for a great service last week.  The lamb was absolutely delicious, all our guests are raving about it.  We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the taste was so different to anything I could have achieved with a standard oven.  Next time we decide to have a large gathering again we will certainly be in touch.


    Thanks again for everything,

    Jenny & Eamon

It was a positive experience dealing with you from start to finish and I will be singing your praises for a long time to come!


    All the best, and again – velen dank!
