A personal message to you…

I’d like to firstly say thank you for visiting our page and taking the time to consider us for your events. Hopefully some of the things here will have resonated with you and we share similar values! We know how big the decision is, deciding which food vendors to have which is why we have created a dedicated page to demonstrate why we may be the best choice for you! 

We are a relatively young company. Myself and my partner Emma, run the business together with help from our brilliant staff! We entered into the industry after experiencing first hand, the overall poor quality of food and service in the local mobile catering trade. We knew there was a gap in the market, after spending £7 on a rubbery, bland pork roll at a local county show (there wasn’t even any apple sauce!). 

We knew we could storm the area with our passion for providing delicious food, sourced from our own farm or local farms, at fair prices for the customer. Simply by putting in extra effort and showing people that we cared about the food we served, we soon became very popular. We have grown substantially in the past 2 years but we don’t want to stop here!

Our iconic Hog Roast Roll is our most popular menu item by far. Here’s an example of what we would serve and the typical price:

As a plated meal with homemade salad and coleslaw we would charge £6.00

To Accompany?

We have a range of side dishes that can top off a meal. These are usually best at smaller events where customers can sit down and enjoy a plated meal. 

Value For Money

 We think it is important that the customer gets real value for the money. We make sure we give healthy portion sizes!

The majority of customers who buy one of our Hog Roast Rolls, come back for a second!
