FAQ – Hog Roast Catering

Do you have food or guest minimums?
No, we never have guest minimums or minimum spends for special events. All of our pricing is based on the number of guests attending, location of event, and the menu you choose or we can customize any menu to make your event exactly how you want it.

What kind of functions do you cater for?
We pride ourselves on being able to cater for a number of different events from parties, to corporate dinners, shoot catering, private dinner parties, wedding receptions, hog roasts, working lunches, corporate presentations, charity balls, anniversary dinners, agricultural tents at shows, funerals, or just a celebration. The list goes on and on, catered and served, or just delivered. If you have something else in mind, we love a new challenge so please give us a call.

Which venues do you cater in?
We are happy to work in all venues, from marquees to barns, houses, and halls. We don’t need access to a kitchen. We can help you suit the menu to the venue and the facilities.

How can we choose our menu?
We have included a wide range of dishes in the menu section for you to peruse. Having experience from many events we are able to work alongside you to create your bespoke menu. Taking into consideration flavours, tastes and textures that suit you and your guests. If you are unsure on what foods to serve we have prepared menus that you can peruse and choose from or we can adjust them to create your unique menu. However if there is something you fancy and it is not there, please do not hesitate to ask.

I have vegan and vegetarian guests.. Do I need to plan my menu around them?
