When planning a hog roast in Hampshire for a wedding, there’s a plethora of venues to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a great place for an outdoor celebration or the ideal setting to plan multiple grazing stations to delight your guests, the county offers venues for all different needs. Here are some of our favourite ideas.
Barn weddings are always full of character, taking place in a versatile venue which suits a number of wedding styles and themes, including those looking for hog roast catering. Barns are ideal for those who love rustic country styles or want a sense of the season implemented in their theme. Many have adjoining courtyards and gardens which are great for guests to mingle as the space is transformed for each part of the day. Luckily, there are a lot of wedding barns in Hampshire to consider, including Pitt Hall Barn in Basingstoke which is set within 2,500 acres of beautiful countryside on the border with Berkshire.
Vineyards add a magical touch to weddings, combining vintage charm with stunning backdrops. The elegant yet relaxed vibes of a winery go perfectly with a hog roast. Hampshire boasts some of the most gorgeous scenery in the UK, so it’s only fitting that there are plenty of wedding vineyards to choose from. This includes Three Choirs Vineyard in Shedfield and Hambledon Vineyard in Waterlooville. Imagine delicious gourmet canapes, a slow cooked hog roast and wood fired delights, all washed down with your favourite wines.
Country hotels are the perfect places for a traditional wedding whatever the season, whether planning a sizzling summer party or a winter wedding feast. Hog roasts are a great idea in this type of venue thanks to their flexibility and the amount of space on offer, even if choosing this style of wedding food for a three course sit down meal or evening celebrations. If looking for something grand, The Elvetham in Hook is a great choice, set in beautiful grounds with multiple dining and reception rooms. If you don’t mind venturing more into Surrey wedding territory, Botleys Mansion in Chertsey is an amazing choice for those looking for a breathtaking mansion which can be exclusively yours for the day. Other venues to consider include Highfield Park near Hook, Norton Park in Winchester or even the Mill at Gordleton for a riverside location and intimate weddings.
Golf & Country Clubs
Golf clubs are also a perfect choice if choosing hog roast wedding catering thanks to their large grounds, spacious rooms and incredible countryside settings. Blacknest Golf and Country Club in Alton, for example, is set within 100 acres of parkland, with incredible lakeside views and both a clubhouse and ‘woodlands tipi’ to create a truly bespoke wedding. Other Hampshire golf club venues perfect for weddings include Skylark Golf and Country Club in Fareham and Old Thorns Manor Hotel in Liphook which has breathtaking views across South Downs National Park.
