Gourmet HogRoast were absolutely amazing in ensuring everything was perfect for my husband’s 50th birthday bash.  From the initial conversations with Marco & Nick through to the execution on the night, their customer service and professionalism were second to none.  The food was delicious and Brendon who took control on the night was so helpful and considerate of my guests needs.  I will be recommending Gourmet HogRoast to all my family & friends and look forward to using them again in the future.

Good morning Nick

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making Chris & Sara’s wedding the beautiful and relaxing day that it was.  My abiding memory will be you, calmly and quietly, constantly walking the venue, clip board in hand, gently overseeing that all was well.  You cannot imagine how much pressure that took off me.

Your staff were outstanding and I hope you will let them know that.  The waiting staff were friendly, efficient and utterly professional. The bar staff were superb and I would like a special thank you to them for the amazing job they did on clearing up at the end.  When I got back the next morning expecting to deal with a horror I was presented with everything ordered and sorted; again so much pressure removed.

The food was wonderful and everyone commented on how brilliant the whole meal was but this was as much to do with the presentation and professionalism of your company as it was to the fantastic cooking !!

I have to commend you, your company and all your staff for a brilliant job.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much.

Hi Nick/Marco

The food was absolutely fantastic, as was the service from Victoria and the other chef (Joe?). 10 out of 10 in all respects.

We were very pleased, could not fault it in any way, and I would have no hesitation recommending you.

Two aspects impressed us in particular. Firstly, while the meat was tremendous, the quality of the salads also stood out. Coleslaw can often be too rich and creamy, but yours was excellent and served to enhance rather than compete with the meat. The parmesan and pinenut salad was also excellent.

Secondly, your chefs provided excellent service and were very kind and easy to deal with. We didn’t have to do anything at all. They were in no hurry to leave and wanted to make sure that we had alternate tables and serving dishes, and helped us get these out before leaving.

Thanks again and please pass on our sincere thanks to the whole team. It was an important day for us and thanks to you it was a huge success.

A big thank you to you and the boys for a superb BBQ in the paddock at Brands Hatch this weekend. The food was spot on and the boys served up spot on time – much appreciated by the hungry crowd. The numbers we estimated seemed perfect. Your team left the place spotless, please say a big thanks to them.

We look forward to the full Hog experience at Silverstone.

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Scott. Really great guy..sadly not a great ending of the rugby for him!

Please pass on our thanks and tell him that by the end of the night there wasn’t even a potato left, let alone any pork!

Kind regards

Thank you very much to Ollie and Charlie for a wonderful hog roast on Sunday 17th – Everyone had lots to eat and said how lovely it was! Thank you it worked very well – I reckon we could have easily have just 1/2 pig as well as there was soooo much left !! We’ve had a lot of pork sandwiches and even thai pork curry !! Well done though – all in all a huge success!! Many Thanks

Carol Duff

Everything run so smoothly. I didn’t have to give the food organisation any thought on the night. Just what you need when you have 100 things to remember.

Everyone was very complimentary about the food and the Fox Pub were incredibly impressed with the organisation on arrival and departure.

Kitty Mason

I found all the hog roast personnel helpful polite and more than happy to go the extra mile. They carried boxes of wine around, set up the electric and provided extra cables and checked on what I wanted at suitable moments. They did everything exactly the time they said they would. The food came out at exactly the time agreed and I could not have been happier with the quality.

Catherine Phillips

It was great to have The Gourmet Hog Roast catering for our party last month. They took care of everything start to finish and were a real pleasure to have around as part of the party. We had both the Pork and the marinated Lamb, which were absolutely perfect. Sweet juicy meat and a mound of crispy crackling! Not to mention the potatoes cooked in the meat juices below, simply delicious! It was the talking point of the party and without fail everyone commented on not just the excellent food but the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff who clearly love what they do. By far the best Hog Roast I’ve had and I couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough.

Gourmet Hog Roast was recently used as the main food supplier for our 2012 graduate welcome event at BP’s International Centre for Business Technology ICBT in Sunbury. .We selected GHR after carefully exploring other options in the market and they proved to be a great team, having delivered a high quality roast with excellent service and value for money.

~ October 9, 2012


We researched extensively on the web. When we got in touch they were super friendly and helpful and seemed to tick all the boxes… flexible, gazebo provided, serving, plates, cutlery all just as we had wanted. On the day they turned up promptly and once they’d set up the roast, they went so far to offer their help with the other party arrangements we were making, so we roped them into that too! They couldn’t have been nicer to have around and everyone commented positively on the quality of the food… When all was done, they cleared up perfectly and left with a minimum of fuss. We would not hesitate to recommend them for whatever your event is.

~ October 2, 2012

Catie Paterson

I can not recommend you and your company highly enough! You produce one of the most delicious pieces of meat I have tasted in a long time the crackling ….
Well suffice to say people are still talking about it there was no waste. The whole thing is well presented and if I had had any sense I would have had 2
Not just highly recommended but a MUST HAVE

We had a great experience using Gourmet Hogroast . They catered a party of about 100 people. We found there menu offered an easy to choose from selection at reasonable prices. The food was delicious and plentiful, served right on time. It was wonderful to be able to rely on them for both food preparation and clean-up. If you are looking for someone to cater your next event, we highly recommend giving consideration to The Gourmet Hog Roast Company, you can’t go wrong using Marco and Nick.
