This week was an extremely busy one for Premier Hog Roast. Throughout the week our team had a couple of jacket potato events and a corporate event, for which we brought a delicious feast from our fine dining menu. The biggest days work of the week though, was definitely a hog roast in Buckinghamshire. Over 200 people flocked to a local village hall for our clients birthday, and all were sent home with satisfied stomachs and stretching smiles!
Having a hog roast in Buckinghamshire was made all the more enjoyable by its picturesque scenery. On the hall’s field, as the pork was being dished out to the party guests, rolling sheets of green flecked with the occasional cluster of trees stretched off into the distance. The sun was low in the sky and shadows were starting to elongate. As people laughed and joked together, the smell of cider and sea salt soaked pork rose through the air, pleasuring the nostrils. This is what having a hog roast is all about!
The county’s scenery hasn’t gone unnoticed. The popular television show ‘Midsummer Murders’ is shot in the town of Aylesbury. The town has quaint old fashioned buildings which were perfect for the set of the fictional village in the series. If rumours are to be believed, Enid Blyton also came up with the idea for ToyTown – the fictional hometown of Noddy – in Beaconsfield. However, it’s not just the big screen that’s noticed the beautiful locations in Buckinghamshire, writers have also seemed to have gained their inspiration there. Mary Shelley reportedly also prepared her great gothic novel ‘Frankenstein’ in Marlow.
We like to think that our product was up to the beautiful landscape’s standards. All the guests were unanimous in their generous complimenting of the food: a cider and sea salt soaked pig, with floured fresh baps and a selection of salad. We had a lot of questions about the sourcing of our animals, and we told everyone who asked that we source all our pigs from our very own Barry the Butcher. He guarantees that all our animals are well kept, free range, and most important of all: extremely tasty. Locally sourcing our pigs, and in fact all our products, is important to us. We are a family run company with family values and we believe in helping your community. The great thing about this job is, as our famed hog roasts have become legend across the UK, we get to travel to more and more communities to give them the gift of our glorious pigs! What’s more, is that we deliver all our menus free of charge. Whether it’s a hog roast in Buckinghamshire, or a jacket potato order in Oxford, or a buffet in Birmingham. When you book with us we make sure you’re aware of all the things on the bill so there’s no surprise charges. We also try to include as much as possible so you get more bang for your buck – like throwing in the service of a uniformed staff, including chef, on all fine dining orders absolutely free of charge. Feel free to contact us about our great menus today!
This week we served up a beautiful Hertfordshire Hog Roast in an equally beautiful hall near St. Albans. The grounds were expertly well kept, and guests of all ages occupied the neatly trimmed lawns, dressed to the nines in celebration of a local charity event. Despite the typical January temperatures, the sun still shone – a miracle in itself – and the day was enjoyable for all involved.
It made us feel proud to be considered and subsequently booked for an event of such importance to an entire community of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, and we knew we had to produce a feast befitting of such a prestigious venue and noble cause. The guest list stretched to nearly 400, and so two glorious free range orchard pigs were used, each covered in its own flavour enhancing rubs: cider and sea salt; thyme and rosemary, honey and chilli. Half were filled with a traditional cant-go-wrong sage and onion stuffing, whilst the others were filled with a more contemporary bacon and apple stuffing. Guests loved the combinations we provided, and many were seen to be using a variety of different pigs to produce towering and succulent pork baps (we admire their creativity!) which were all fresh, floured and buttered. There were also jacket potatoes, filled with an assortment of tasty accompaniments such as home-cooked chilli, cheddar cheese and BBQ beans. Hertfordshire loved the food we brought!
As a family run company, we pride ourselves on our reliability, and therefore hire staff who are extremely professional. In addition to this, we aim to ensure that everyone from Premier Hog Roast is approachable and genuine. In Hertfordshire, our staff performed admirably, considering the number of people there was to serve. Each guest was given their food with a smile, and I often saw the guests and our staff joking. The rapport between us, our client, and their guests, is vital in any event we cater for. We believe that a light and happy yet professional atmosphere is the best for a hog roast… because it’s best to only be focused on the company of your family, friends or colleagues, and of course the beautiful taste of slow roasted pork. Let us worry about all the rest!
In short, we make your event run smoothly by taking on all responsibilities associated with organising the event. We deliver the food free of charge, staff the event with professional and approachable workers, stay till each and every guest’s stomachs are filled, and can even put on entertainment if required, in the form of a DJ. All you have to do is invite the guests and tell us when to show up! So if you have an upcoming event which needs catering, don’t hesitate to contact us via telephone/email, both available from the ‘contact us’ section of this website. No venue is too small and no event is too large!
We don’t know what it is about our hog roasts in Gloucestershire. The residents of the county just can’t seem to get enough of our splendidly roasted pigs. We’re not complaining – we love to travel far and wide to deliver our delicious menus to our customers. We’re now so well known there that it just might be our favourite county to cater for… behind our beloved Warwickshire of course!
Yes, over the years we’ve had many an event in the glorious county. Whether it’s a birthday at Cirencester, a ladies day at Cheltenham, or a corporate event in Gloucester itself – we’re always arriving with a fully loaded van and smiles on our faces. Is it due to a lack of hog roast companies in Gloucestershire? Is there a link between Gloucestershire’s location and the desire for our perfect pigs? Maybe legend of our professionalism and the taste of our pork has seared through the Cotswolds like wildfire, spread by word of mouth and halted by no bad review. Yes, that must be it… Regardless of the reason, we thought it fitting to dedicate this weeks blog to a county who fully support us in our ongoing battle to provide the best hog roasts, BBQ’s and jacket potatoes in all of the United Kingdom. Gloucestershire, we salute you!

And while we wholly commend the support of Gloucestershire’s hog roast loving population, naturally we don’t want anyone to feel left out. We want to have such a relationship with every county in our delivery range! Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, don’t be disheartened, we’re sure that soon you may too have a level of commitment to our services that is equal to that of the mighty Gloucestershire.
On a serious note, we would like to let all our customers know that no bias towards Gloucestershire can be seen in our food – everything on our menu is unreservedly cooked to a level of perfection which is sent across our delivery range, regardless of varying levels of county support… Yes, we don’t care if you’re a builder from Oxfordshire or a lawyer from Leicestershire, we promise to always deliver pigs that are roasted to perfection and service that is second to none, all delivered totally free of charge to your doorstep.
