Hello Sorry for such a late reply with this email. Our experience with the spitting pig for our wedding was great, lovely food and plenty of it. Friendly staff and James went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. All dietary requirements were catered for and a lot of people commented on how nice the meat was and I especially loved the sticky toffee pudding! James replied always very quickly to messages prior to the wedding. Thanks again, we had a fantastic day with fantastic catering.

Dear Geordie, Hog Roast was brilliant. Please thank Jane Hizzard and her helpers for a fantastic job. Our butcher remarked what a good pig it was, which knowing the gentleman concerned, was high praise indeed.  Apple sauce was also commented upon as being delicious - which it was. Please can you send me some business cards to give to anyone hoping to have another hog roast.  Jackfruit was also very well received. So pleased I found out about The Spitting Pig. Best wishes

Dear Penny, The  village Jubilee street party was a great success and the team from the Spitting Pig did a fantastic job. There was plenty of food to go around , despite some last minute changes in numbers and everything was delicious.

Hi Penny, Thank you, we had a great Wedding reception. James was fantastic, very friendly and easy to plan/coordinate with. He had done an event at the Venue before so was able to give useful insight into how the hog roast should be done. The guests loved the hog roast and the Jackfruit. I would recommend Spitting Pig to anyone. I hope this is helpful. Thanks

Just to say a massive thank you for all your hard work at our wedding on Saturday. The food was fantastic. We like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of pulled pork and we can honestly say that yours is the best we've ever tasted. We had lots of positive comments about them from our guests too. The generous portion sizes went down well, and the fact that the food was so fresh and hot made a real impression. I loved how tender the pork was and how fresh all your salads tasted! Lots of people commented on how yummy the cheesecake was too. Last but not least, thank you for your professionalism and excellent communication. All my emails over the last year or so have been met with speedy responses, and I was never worried that you'd let us down in any way. The speed of service was also impressive, particularly considering we had 140 guests on 17 tables. You run a well-oiled machine!

Hi I'm delighted to say that all the feedback from the night was super positive, everyone loved the hog roast and everything that went with it. The servers, Mum and granddaughter, arrived bang on time and set up with the minimum of fuss and were ready to serve on time. The hog, stuffing, apple sauce and crackling were excellent as was the idea of serving the meat in wraps. All the above would have guaranteed a good night but what made it even better was the good humour and involvement of the ladies serving the food. A great evening thanks

Hi, Thank you for your email, everything went perfectly well on Saturday 28th December. When we arrived at the venue (I think it was James) he was already there with another lady, they explained everything and was very friendly. There were no problems and everything ran smoothly. I was very happy with what we received and he service we had. IT WAS AMAZING. Everyone who attended the wedding loved it and had positive things to say about it all. Would definitely booked again 🙂

Good afternoon We were just so impressed with the service we received from the Spitting Pig. Everything was brilliantly organised, with James and his assistant already at the property when we arrived, despite it being in the middle of nowhere and almost impossible to find! Service was impeccable and unobtrusive, everything was done with minimum of fuss. The food was delicious and James was fantastic; so accommodating and helpful. Everyone loved the food- James even kindly made up sandwiches with the leftovers which was greatly appreciated. We would 100% recommend the Spitting Pig to anyone looking to cater an event. Communication very efficient and clear from the office team too. Thank you all so much.

Dear Spitting Pig, Our event on 17th August was indeed a success. We want to put out a big thank you to all the staff involved in our event. From the planning stages and booking to the day itself: All aspects of the organisation, cooking, serving and tidy up were professionally and brilliantly executed. We have to extend an extra thank you to the attending team who didn’t let the flooded lake track dampen their spirits. They crossed this and the wet field to reach the tipis and managed to produce a fantastic hog roast with top quality trimmings. The family service was provided with an extremely high level of professionalism. All our guests were particularly impressed with all the food provided including the vegetarian option which went down very well. With all this in mind we would like to thank you again for the entire service provided. Best wishes

Good morning, I wanted to let you know what a fantastic job James did for my husbands surprise birthday party on 16th February. It was everything I hoped it would be. The food was delicious but I have to say , James was a superstar. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He kept me fully informed during the build up to the event and his discretion , knowing it was a surprise, was very much appreciated. My guests were very impressed and I’m getting nothing but positive reports back. Hopefully you’ll get more business from it. Thank you once again and please send my sincere thanks and gratitude to James for his fantastic service. Best regards

Good Morning The event was fantastic , the food was excellent , lots of it , beautifully cooked. The vegetarian option of the Halloumi and cooked vegetables was a different touch which was a bonus for our vegetarians on site. The pork was tender, turkey was moist and the fantastic cracking was out of this world… Dave and his team are very accommodating, friendly, happy and as always, great job. Best regards

Hi Andrew If you could pass on our thanks to Tom please and say that the staff were all fab, with a special mention to Danny & Mark, who were a real asset to the event and massive help during set-up. They were super knowledgeable and not scared of hard work (which it really was!). So I’d like them to have a special thank you please. And thank you to yourself and your incredibly talented wife. The feedback on the food was fantastic and it was great to have everything in such capable hands. I appreciate your patience in the lead-up to the wedding. I know the food was a particular area of anxiety for Liz & David and despite our reassurances, I think they were never going to really know until the big day itself. But they were very very happy. I’ll be sure to recommend your services and hope to work with you again in the future. Many thanks

Gosh Andrew, you beat me to it!! Just got internet back up and running. What can I say?? Soooooo many compliments on the food!!! It was simply wonderful, and to manage so many servings, I needn’t have worried there wouldn’t be plenty!!! Very generous provision. Must have many coming back for more, which is an excellent testament! Happy to hear you enjoyed the evening and music, even tho’ you were working. It was to be a ‘one off’ but judging by the comments we are receiving, even being asked by people,who missed out, to be kept informed of when tickets go on sale for next one!! I will, of course, keep,your details to hand, for when that happens, Thank you again

Hi Andy, Thank goodness for that sunshine! I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for everything you provided. Every single guest has commented on how delicious, juicy and basically fantastic the pork was…the vegetarians (and meat-eaters) absolutely loved the pasta bake…and everyone enjoyed the lovely fresh salads. The tomato mozzarella one was gorgeous. And I have to mention the giant crackling and apple sauce – exceptional! It was so good to see everyone tucking in to huge platefuls of delicious food – I think a few people went back for 3rd helpings – and comments included ‘best hog roast I’ve ever eaten’ and ‘best, most relaxed wedding meal ever’ – thanks for being so easy to work with, organised, professional and friendly throughout. If I was to have another big party, I’d book you again immediately. Would you like me to leave a review on your facebook page? Just let me know which page to use and I’ll get it sorted 🙂 Many thanks again,

Hi Andrew, Fiona and Angela. In the words of one of our guests in the ‘post a script’ jottings ‘Hog Roast fab’. Couldn’t express it better myself. Without exception our guests loved it. Tasty and tender. Lovely comments as to how much it was enjoyed. May I also say what a super friendly team you were. You couldn’t have done any more to make it easier for me and to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Super-efficient service and your area used was left spotless after finishing up. I was most impressed. Thank you all so much for a superb service. With best wishes,

I would just like to say a massive thanks for what was undoubtedly the best hog roast we and many of our guests had ever tasted. You came to my husband’s 70th birthday celebration at Kirkcudbright bowling club on Sat 16th Aug and we’ve heard many praises to which I’d like to add my own – both of your food and the very pleasant and helpful manner in which it was served. I had booked you through a Dumfries number which I found on the internet having failed to get a couple of fairly local hog roasts who were pre-booked but in the end I was very grateful for that!  I hope your journey south was fairly pleasant as you had a long way to travel late at night after a busy evening’s work. I have kept your card and already given your details to a couple of folk who asked for them so hopefully we’ll get to enjoy your delicious hog roasts again! Many thanks

Dear Andrew, Thank you to you,your wife & all your team of helpers for doing such a fantastic job of catering for us on our wedding day. The food was truly magnificent – we could not believe how tender the pork was from the hogroast! All our friends and family commented on how lovely the food was & we really are very grateful indeed.You made the day go so smoothly from earlier in the day with some of the things we had not been able to do, right through to the meal. Thank you so much – we know the small kitchen in the middle of nowhere probably wasn’t the easiest place in the world for you to cater from.
