We had a wonderful day, despite the weather. Thanks so much to James and Jane for all their hard work and positivity! The prep and service was second to none and their suggestions for how to serve under the restricted circumstances plus their lovely cheery disposition really did make the proceedings much easier than they otherwise could have been.
Thank you so much for making it a great do!

Would definitely booked again 🙂

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.

Thank you all for a fantastic service.
Jane Robinson – Clapham
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.
Tom and Tash – Cumbria
I have to say I was very impressed, spoke to James a couple of times before my event and he was very helpful. He arrived at the venue 2 hours before to get himself organised.
Food was delicious and plentiful for the 75 people I catered for any some left for James to leave some butties for the hungry men later in the night.
I would definitely use Spitting Pig company again and would highly recommend this type of catering for anyone wanting something a bit different and not wanting the hassle of cleaning up yourself.
Very Very happy customer.
Paula and Kenneth
Thank you for catering at short notice for our event. The process of booking on line and payment was very simple at there is always someone on the end of an E mail for a quick response.

Thank you for all your hard work and i will always recommend your company.
Hello, I just wanted to thank you for the service you provided on 2nd May for Siemens, the Hog roast plus extra’s went down extremely well and I have received many many compliments from all the techs saying how amazing the food was and efficient your set up is. We will certainly be recommending you to others.
Thank you very much
Becky and all the Siemens personnel.
The event ran fantastically well, and we got loads of great comments about the Hog Roast. The team were very professional – worked hard and capably without supervision…
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 and hopefully see you all again in 2018.

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.
Thanks again for a great service and feel free to use us as a testimonial. Hopefully a mail shot to all of those holiday parks at that back of our Leisure time brochure might throw up some additional future business for you.
I just wanted to get in touch to thank you so much for Saturday evening.
Jo and Fiona were amazing and did such a good job. The food was wonderful and they cleared everything up and took rubbish away with them.
It was the first time I had had a hog roast and I will certainly recommend your company.

Just a quick note to say thank you for a fantastic hog roast at my wedding on the 12th September….everyone commented on how great it was.
A special thanks also to the 2 additional staff who worked during the day…it is not an overstatement to say they were amazing. We would like to send the 2 staff a present if you could give me a contact address/phone.

Hello Andy the weather was very kind and we had the most fabulous day! Thank you – your girls were lovely very efficient and I’m assured the buns were delicious thank you for everything.
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
Just a little note of appreciation for your services at Wyreside Hall 60th Birthday Party on Saturday evening 22nd June. Every single person thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food and the service you provided was nothing short of excellent! We would not hesitate to recommend you to business colleagues, friends and family! Also I have you in mind for when we open The Hall. I very much appreciated you re-opening to feed the pilots even though you were all packed ready for home! It had been a long day of hard work for you all and you obliged so cheerfully!
Our Thanks sincerely once again ,
Steve and Romy Hinde
It was fantastic! Thank you so much for a gorgeous dinner – everything was of such high quality and perfectly cooked. I was so impressed with everything you made for us and there was so much of it! Everyone was stuffed by the end!
The day was awesome, very good feedback by everyone! We will certainly be talking regarding doing another in the future, if you have any info regarding other services you provide.
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,
Thank you. Yes the food and service was brilliant thank you. We had many comments to that effect! Thanks for all your help during the evening. It was much appreciated.

Thanks again, Helen & Stu

Gemma and Scott
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,
Many thanks for the event you catered for last night spitting pig. We ordered a simple menu 1 with the vegetarian option for our grandson’s birthday and everyone had a really good time. The food was of very high standard and there was more than enough to go round. Thanks again, keep up the good work!
Thank you so much everyone was raving on about the hog roast how succulent & juicy it was so hopefully you may get some more booking from it. There were lots of people going for second or even third portions & Paul & the girls were brilliant.

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!
Thank you for catering at our event on Saturday,
everybody has said how much they enjoyed the food and the service so thanks!
The pork was beautiful!
Good Morning Spitting Pig,
We had such an amazing day, you and your team were terrific.
The roast lamb was to die for and very efficiently provided!!
Sarah and Ian Robson
We would just like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for catering at our summer fundraiser on the 18/06/2014.
Everyone loved the hog roast especially the crackling!
We will definitely be passing on your details.
Thanks very much for an excellent service on Saturday at Lox Lane Farm for my party! The pig went down a treat and everybody enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks!
Dear Andrew, can I just say a big thank you for Saturday night at Terry’s 50th. Everyone there, and I mean everyone, has said how much they enjoyed the food and service. Think you may be having a few more trips to Barrow! Sarah Hart.
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.
