This is probably a great opportunity for me to introduce myself to you, my name is James and I am the owner of Spitting Pig Northern UK. With nearly 2 decades of experience within the industry you can be sure that your catering is in safe hands with me! I have worked at numerous busy gastro pubs and hotels, starting as an apprentice a long time ago and working my way up to head chef. I then took the plunge a few years ago to take on Spitting Pig Northern UK and I haven’t looked back since.

We are a very close family run business that can provide you with a unique and delicious hog roast for as many or as few guests as you would like, low numbers is not a problem for us just as several hundred is not either. It really doesn’t matter how big or small you want your event to be, we will provide you wish the finest hog roast catering experience money can buy.

My passion for food and catering has been with me since a young age and isn’t something you ever lose, many of my customers have said that’s what makes us stand out – our true love for what we do. Happy customers means happy chef’s!

Established, Experienced Chef

Before booking I know you want to know you are trusting an established, experienced chef to provide only the best for your event. My apprentice years at the Plough in Lupton stood me in good stead for my career in catering, it was a very busy country pub and I always remember the experiences I learnt from there. I then swiftly moved up the ranks across a number of different establishments to sous chef and head chef. One of my favourites was The Watermill Inn and Brewing that is a multi award winning pub in the Lakes and I managed to push us to reach Camra National Food and Drink Pub Of The Year. A real achievement for me and something I am very proud of. Later down the line I took up a position at The Villa Levens and then onto a newly refurbished country pub in my local village where I took on functions of large numbers and yet more experience in the fine dining side of things. All of which have greatly contributed to lead me to where I am now, proud to be running Spitting Pig Northern UK!

With the backing of this cutting edge company Spitting Pig Northern UK now regularly covers grand weddings & corporate functions etc but still remains very proactive in the hire and smaller events market. I am predominantly the driver behind the preparation and cooking at our events and maintain a strong bias towards fresh locally baked produce which has stemmed from my 17+ years experience, knowing that fresh is always best!

Our staff are usually family members and we are a close knit team that all work with the same goal, that no matter what size or type of function we ensure that you have a smooth well organised event that you and your guests fondly remember.
