The caterer who attended – Lee – was fantastic from the word go! We had to adapt the set up due to the awful weather but he was absolutely brilliant. Everyone loved the food and we weren’t left with too many leftovers!! He cleaned up discreetly and even gave us some extra paper plates for our cake. I would 100% recommend The Spitting Pig and will no doubt be using them again for future events.
Our hog roast was fantastic and everyone had a great time. The staff were professional, accommodating and attentive to all of us. The food tasted wonderful and it was beautifully presented too. Thank you for everything.
Please extend our thanks to Andrew for his work on the 23rd September. What a fantastic service and a thoroughly lovely guy. Fabulous food and a professional attitude made for a super experience.
Hi – with pleasure.
Lee was an absolute delight: professional, polite, friendly and exceptionally good at what he does – in the face of much adversity from the elements. And boy he knows his stuff.
Everyone whom attended truly loved the food and the ‘theatre’ of the hog roast concept, and you certainly err on the side of over catering as opposed to leaving it short.
Lee was wonderfully accommodating about helping us save the copious left overs and packing doggy bags for guests.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant – we’ll without question use you guys again – incredibly reliable and tidied everything away – we would never have known he’d been.
We had the Spitting Pig for our evening catering requirements for our event on Saturday 4th September 2021. The team arrived promptly were set up and ready to go at the requested time.
The food was absolutely amazing for meat eaters and vegetarians/vegans alike and our guests are still raving about it now.
I would highly recommend the Spitting Pig Company and am really looking forward to when we can use them again.
Thank you so much for attending our wedding. The food was absolutely delicious, we couldn’t have asked for better. There was ample amount provided for each serving and the salads were beautiful. Aleks and the guests all complemented how nice the hog roast was. I also felt that the vegetarians (me being one myself) were catered for exceptionally well for a company that provides a hog roast.
Thank you again
The hog roast for my 70th birthday party on 7th August was excellent, my guests all praised the food. We thought we were in for a wet and cold afternoon but the sun came out at the right time.
The service was first class (in spite of a last minute COVID dilemma). Well done James and your team. I would certainly recommend Spitting Pig for a superb hog roast.
I used spitting pig for my daughters birthday a few week back, we only had a small number of guests and were hesitant to get an outside caterer, but after being recommended, we booked you and we’re so glad we did. We opted for the southern slow roast menu instead of a whole hog due to guest numbers but the food was amazing! We had left overs for the next day, which went down a treat!
Firstly we would like to say thank you to James for dealing with any of our queries we had prior to our event.
Also we would like to say a very big thank you to Tina. She was amazing on the day, she worked so hard and the food was delicious our family were so impressed everybody said how friendly she was. We had a wonderful afternoon and we will be recommending the Spitting Pig to others and would not think twice about using your company in the future.
Spitting Pig Essex catered our wedding. They provided the wedding breakfast, Hog Roast and an evening buffet. Their service was highly professional, very helpful and went above and beyond on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Due to Covid restrictions, we had to cancel our wedding this year. We didn’t want the day to pass without any sort of celebration so we had one of your delicious menus dropped off at our house. The meat was so tasty! We saved some and put it aside for some family members in our bubble! Thank you.
Spitting Pig Essex was amazing to work with! They catered for our wedding of 100 people, and everyone loved the food! Spitting Pig Essex was very accommodating when I realized I had some guests who needed food options that were both gluten free and vegetarian. Would definitely recommend for any events!
We used Spitting Pig Essex for our Model Grand Opening last month and were so happy with their service. The food was great, but the service personnel were exceptional. We will definitely use you again in the future. Thank you!
We were extremely happy with Jean Paul and how well the day went. He contacted me beforehand to discuss all requirements and got to the venue and set up without any problems. The food was really good, we had lots of positive feedback from our guests, with many of them asking about the company and for more information.
I will most definitely be using your services again in the near future and will highly recommend you.
A special thank you to Jean Paul who made everything so much easier and kept me informed all the way through.
Thank you for a most brilliant afternoon. We have had so many positive comments about the quality of the food and the service.
Everything was delicious and prepared in very cold and windy conditions. Well done the chef and his team..
We were very impressed at the way the two assistants served the food and interacted with everybody. The serving was done efficiently and without fuss as was the clearing up. We had many comments about their cheerful demeanour and their efficiency.
Everything was brilliant and we are very pleased that we asked your company to cater our event. We cannot praise everything highly enough.
With best wishes for your future success
I just wanted to contact you to let you know how grateful we are for the fabulous service you provided for our wedding on 6th April 2019. Your communication leading up to the event was fantastic and as a bride, it really took a lot of worry away for me. You completely put my mind at ease and I did not have even one tiny worry about the food.
The food itself was amazing, all our guests said how great it was and the portions were huge! A+ for the crackling!
Jean Paul our chef and his team were extremely helpful, setting up in plenty of time and battling the cold and drizzly April weather.
On behalf of my husband and I, we can’t thank you enough. We would recommend you in a heartbeat. Thank you.
Well – what a success!!
From start to finish your company were a joy to deal with. Clear helpful menus and pricing, great communications and no fuss!
Your team arrived on the day and set up with no hiccups, the feedback I have received from both our factory staff and office staff is that the food was absolutely delicious (especially the brisket) and the tidying up was all done and you’d never know anyone had been.
Excellent service, great quality and quantity of food – definite 10/10. John-Paul was absolutely great too explaining what was in the food and nothing was too much trouble on the day.
Will definitely be using your services again for any similar future events and possibly looking to get you guys booked in for a Sales Conference BBQ in July (mid week). Will keep you posted.
Thanks once again for making our event such a success.
I have to say everything on Sunday was absolutely brilliant. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable. Jean Paul arrived earlier than we had asked (which was very much appreciated!!) and the set up was completely seamless. They were incredibly discrete setting everything up and so friendly to all our guests – who raved about how amazing the food was. Carla was an absolute star at helping out with everything and nothing seemed like too much trouble for her. I honestly couldn’t recommend the Spitting Pig Co. more highly to any of my friends and will certainly be using them again if we have any other parties!
I would like to thank you and the team for a such a smooth operation on the day. The team were polite, welcoming, friendly and very prompt setting up. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone who attended commented throughout the evening on how tasty everything was.
Thank you for contributing towards the evening and making it a complete success, and I will certainly pass on your details to friends and family.
Apologies for my delay in responding to your message. Having a big party and then starting the new academic year at work don’t go well together!
Thank you so much for the wonderful service and meal that you provided at our party. Miles and I really feel that we landed on our feet having you and Jason in charge of our catering. You were both so professional and friendly, and your relaxed and happy approach to the party preparations certainly helped keep me calm. How you managed to keep laughing while all the rain kept falling all around you that afternoon was amazing!
In addition to this your professional and friendly manner extended to our guests in the evening. We had so many friends specifically comment on the delicious food and helpful service – even those that came round for seconds and thirds felt equally welcome with each repeat visit! It really felt like the two of you were as keen as us for the party to go well and for our guests to feel special.
For all of this we thank you sincerely, and would heartily recommend you to anyone and everyone we know.
The party went extremely well, exceeded the standard I hoped for (and I do have high standards!). The food was excellent and everyone said the same, all very impressed I have to say. I’ve had texts and phone calls since saying what a lovely time they all had, how well organised everything was and couldn’t believe how good the food was!
The service Spitting Pig provided was exceptional, catered for our every need, Chris made recommendations for consideration where he thought improvements could be made i.e. he spotted another area for siting of the gazebo and this was found to be perfect and more discreet than my chosen location i.e. away from the guests and where you could clear away without us knowing!
Overall the service was excellent, very professional throughout – and made for a very successful event. I would certainly use you again and will make recommendations to family and friends.
It was good to meet you yesterday.
I am just writing to say a HUGE thank you to Spitting Pig Essex – in particular you, Chris and Ronnie – for doing a Hog Roast at our Haileybury Society Reunion event.
As you might well have gathered I was quite sceptical having never been to a Hog Roast at a private event before but I am now utterly and completely converted, not just by the food which was really fab, but by the professional, courteous and friendly way in which you all operated throughout the entire day. It was absolutely perfect for our guests, all of whom seemed to thoroughly enjoy their day – we heard many positive comments about the quality of the meat and the chance for seconds was greatly appreciated by many – Veggies complimented your quiche & salad option, and the wraps went down really well with adult and little ones alike.
We all really appreciated your hard work in preparing delicious, fresh food for our guests and hope to book you again in the future!
Thank you very much for your hard work on Saturday for my daughters wedding. From the onset we felt comfortable using your company and you did not disappoint. The help given putting a menu together was greatly appreciated and all dietary needs were well accommodated with a ‘no problem’ attitude which carried through to the day.
The feed back we had on the food was all complimentary this was confirmed by the number of people going back to refill their plates. I believe the sausages on the BBQ were a big hit !! As a non meat eater I was also well catered for with a lovely vegetable tart and also with haloumi and grilled vegetables on the BBQ which were delicious all served with homemade salad could not have asked for anything better.
It was lovely to deal with people as flexible and pleasant as yourselves and your staff. I would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone.
