When it comes to catering, why not go the whole hog?

If you’re looking to feed the five thousand at your wedding without the steep ‘per head’ costs, Taste of the West Gold award winner, Hungry Hog South West, may just be the answer.

Owner Mark and the team provide the whole hog roast experience; slow cooked for eight hours to ensure maximum tenderness and juiciness, you also have a choice of beef or lamb, spit-roasted chicken and even sausages for the children! What’s more, they use only local produce, and Mark is fully qualified and with over 20 years’ experience in the catering industry, meaning he can easily soothe your catering headache!

Mark’s speciality is serving juicy hog roast meat in a Mediterranean wrap, stuffed with a Greek salad, and it’s been going down a storm recently! But don’t take our word for it. Head to the website and check out the rave reviews for yourself!
