Hi all just to say your fantastic hog roast was the perfect finish to a perfect day for our son and daughter in laws wedding. It was beautifully lean and full of flavour and the men who were doing it were very pleasant and helpful. We would highly recommend spitting pig and some of our guests also said they would be using them in future, well done spitting pig .


Hi, thank you so much for coming on Saturday evening the food was delicious went down a treat quite a few people said it was the nicest hog roast they have ever had

thanks again Lottie 


The provision of The Hog Roast by The Spitting Pig exceeded all our expectations.

Rob , as an ex-military chef ran the event with all the organisational benefit of his former training.

The 3 attendants were smartly dressed and helpful and charming.

Cleanliness was exemplary .

Our guests came back for ‘seconds’ and quite a few for ‘thirds’ and we have been eating the remains for the last 3 days!

Everything was prepared and presented with care and with pride.

The flavour was ……well, it was full of flavour.

I must mention the wide selection of breads, too, from a local artisan baker.

I am the sort of person who complains or compliments in equal measure, and vocally !!!

There really was nothing that could be improved upon.

It helped to make my daughter’s wedding reception the event she had wished it to be.

If anyone believes this review to be too good to be true, you can give them my contact details.

Best regards,




The event went really well, everyone in the office was really impressed and Richard, our chef, was great.

Would definitely recommend.

Many thanks,


HI all,

Just a quick response to say that Robert did us proud last Tuesday and the customers gave us great feedback on how much they enjoyed the food, we are really looking forward to a repeat performance on Tuesday of next week and will definitely be using your services again,




Good Morning

 The 2 gentlemen were brilliant, very professional and very helpful, I couldn’t have asked for anymore, fantastic !  looking forward to our next event on the 21st

 Many Thanks Daniella


Hi What can I say except Wow!

I would highly recommend the Spitting Pig hog roast. Robert your chef for the night could not have been better, nothing was to much trouble for him. His professionalism and team work carried the night smoothly. We had vegans and vegetarians  etc,   had just over 90 guests, and he managed to please everybody. The food was fantastic, I could not have been more pleased. I ran a small business for 40 years and know just how hard it is to get good reliable staff, he is a credit to your company.

Please pass my thanks again to Robert.

Trevor Harrison


Hi Robert & Callum

Thank you for a great night on my 70th birthday bash on the 19th.  The Hog roast was fantastic. and all the extras, you couldn’t have done a better job, every one has been commenting on the food and service and how impressed they were. So well done the spitting pig hog roast I will certainly recommend you.

Many thanks again

Trevor & Carol Harrison


Hi Geordie,

Roberts & his team where brilliant, the food was fantastic, everyone mentioned how nice it was.  I would definitely use Robert and his team at Spitting Pig Lincolnshire again.

Many Thanks

Hollie Bowring



 Yes, sure.

 The food was amazing, as was the service. The team were great and really hard working which made the whole day brilliant. I’ll definitely be recommending you in the future.

 Many thanks




Yes we had a wonderful day at my daughter’s wedding thank you. The Hog Roast was excellent. Pork was delicious and service was great – polite and friendly. Thank you.

Pauline Rushmer.


Thanks for writing. I would like to say that Robert arrived very promptly with his daughter. They set up and organised themselves with minimum intrusion and were polite and pleasant.

We were happy that we had caterers but also happy that we prepared the first and last courses. They left as unobtrusively as they’d arrived which was great from a party perspective. If we’d have known we might have put a board over the grass below the grill as it burns of course! But it will grow back.

Hope that is helpful,



Hey Sarah !

The food was amazing thank you, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it ! X


Hi Sarah

Thank you for your email.

I have asked the guests for some feedback which I will forward over to you shortly.

Thank you again for all of your help and providing the food on the Friday evening to the guests.

Best wishes




Sorry it’s taken me a while to come back to you.  Rob did a fantastic job on the evening and I received numerous positive comments about the food quality and taste.  I will definitely come to you in the future for any other events and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.




Thanks for your email – the pig roast was brilliant thanks! Robert and Callum were so helpful and thoughtful and their input made the difference to us being able to enjoy the party and not worry about the food.

You were good value for money and great customer service. We would definitely use you again, and recommend you.

Gillian Minogue


Good morning

I just wanted to let you know that we were suitably impressed with the service we received for our party on the 26th August 2017.

The food, service and staff were all superb and helped make our evening a huge success, thank you.

I would have no qualms in either highly recommending you or using you again myself  for further functions in the future.

With huge thanks and warmest wishes

Lisa Spencer-Knott


Absolutely fantastic service from the spitting pig.

Exceeded expectations and would definitely use again.

Thanks for everything Robert, really pleased.




Thank you for your email.  The wedding went very well thank you and the hog roast was very well received by all.  I thanked Robert personally for the good service that you as a company have provided and also for the  excellent and efficient way that he and the lady serving offered us on Saturday.

I would definitely recommend your services. Excellent job.

Kind regards.


Good morning Sarah

The day went absolutely great. Everyone (yes – everyone said what a fabulous party it was and they all agreed that the pork was delicious.
The catering just could not have been better and Robert and Callum were so professional with their presentation.
The day was a big success for me in that I used the occasion of my 75th as a fundraising event to raise money for a defibrillator for the day centre at St Barnabas Hospice, Lincoln. With over 100 guests present we exceeded all expectations and raised £800!
Thanks once again for your catering.

Best regards



The event well perfectly thank you.

Thank you greatly for the hog, it was very well received.

Good luck in your endeavours and I’ll ensure we call you again if we have another event planned.

Kind regards




Sorry I have not replied sooner but I went on holiday immediately after my event on 15/7.

I can now say that the event was a huge success and I was delighted with the service you gave. The pig roast was a great novelty and I and all the guests thoroughly enjoyed it.

Many thanks for making my 80th birthday a day to remember.

Mike Allen


Hi there,

We thoroughly enjoyed our hog, you actually managed to keep most of our guests entertained as well as most had not seen a real hog roast before. Thank you very much we will certainly be recommending you to all our friends.



Hi Sarah
Our event was a great success, the contribution from Spitting Pig was fantastic, down to the cutlery, staff were friendly and professional no complaints from anyone, we would recommend your service to anyone.
Glenn & Pauline Worner


That was fantastic, I have seen on the web site you also do other meats as well, I will keep it in mind for another time and will recommend to others as well.


Would just like to say a massive thank you for catering at our party on Friday night. The food was so good, I have passed on your details to a few friends who were asking about you the day after!

Kind Regards,

Louise and Ben.


Hi Sarah,

The food was amazing – we had a really good evening and the staff were fantastic.

Thanks again, Alan.


We had a wonderful experience, the team and the food that came were exceptional, friendly, helpful and I would highly recommend them.



In general the overall feedback is very positive – the pork and trimmings were excellent and the people who prepared and served did a great job

The hog was more than worth the price.




Good afternoon Sarah.

Everything went great, everyone really enjoyed the hog roast, would definitely use you again for future events. Thanks again.


Thank you to all staff that made our event even more special! Would highly recommend.

Thanks, Katherine


I’d like to thank the two gentleman who catered our event on the rainiest day of the year so far – they had a big smile despite having to deal with 120 hungry people in the downpour! They were lovely, the service was wonderful and they served the best hog roast I have ever tried! My husband is a huge hog roast fan, so him giving Spitting Pig a 10/10 really says something!

All our guests have complimented us on our food during and after the wedding, so thank you so much for catering our day and I would certainly use you again for any future events.

I’d recommend Spitting Pig to anyone!

Thank you all for all your hard work,

Helena and Kieran


I can’t thank the chef enough for the fantastic job that he did – the food was faultless and absolutely amazing and really made the evening.

I would use you again and would recommend you to other people.

Thank you very much



Hi Spitting Pig,

Everything went perfectly, the pig was fantastic everyone has been saying how lovely it was. The man who came to cook and serve it was a lovely man, very friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Thanks for everything, much appreciated.



Spitting Pig

The event in Sleaford was a great success thanks to you and your team and I have passed your details on to many of my guests. You arrived on time, got the pig cooked and served without any trouble. After the event you disposed of all the rubbish properly and left, we would have never of known you had been! Thanks for such great food and we hope to see you again soon



A big thank you to Spitting Pig for the super hog roast you guys did for my husband’s 50th birthday, the food was very well prepared and everyone loved it. We had a great day!



Hi Colin

I hope you are well.
I’m really sorry I haven’t sent this email sooner but back to work straight after the party and it’s been non stop!
Sam and I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team! The food and service you provided for us at our party on 10th Nov was outstanding! You were so slick I didn’t even see you leave at the end of the night, you left everywhere spotless.
Everyone commented on the food and were so excited that there were second helpings!! The service you provided in preparation was also excellent, you made it so easy for us.
I shall certainly be recommending you to friends and definitely come back to you when we need a hog roast in the future! You have a business to be very proud of!
Thank you!

Jo & Sam Downend


Hi Colin
Just a quick message to say thank you for the lovely hot buffet last night at our wedding do. The butties & wedges went down a treat. I’m sorry I barely got to see you guys – you were very efficient & discreet & think I was too busy talking to guests etc.
Thanks again,
Louise & Andrew


Morning Colin
I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful service we received from you and your colleagues on our Wedding Day.
The food was fantastic, service was great and we couldn’t have wished for anymore.
We were so lucky with the weather which was amazing to add to the ambiance when the Pimms and Canapes were served and everyone I spoke to said how delicious the food was.
Rich and I will definitely use you again should we hold another function that requires outside catering.

P.S. The cauliflower cheese was to die for!!! :o)


Good evening Colin,
I just wanted to say how pleased I was with the service and food provided by your team on Saturday.
The canapes were to die for, the pig had us all drooling over it all day as it cooked, and there was hardly anything left on the night! All of the food was fresh, delicious and of excellent quality.
The staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble.
It was nice to hear our guests commenting on how nice the food was which contributed to the success of the party.
I would highly recommend you.

Kind regards,


Hi Colin,
Thanks for the receipt. We’d like to thank you and the team for all your hard work to make Jess and Kristian’s day go so well. Everyone commented on the quality (and quantity!) of the catering and the quality and professionalism of the service. Special thanks to Sarah as well for keeping front of house running smoothly and keeping an eye on Ron! At a wedding, the meals are a key part of the celebration and I think you excelled and did us proud! I’d advise anybody planning a wedding or party to give you a ring and get you to organise the catering. Best wishes for the future with your new venture. we’ll be recommending you whenever we can.
Thanks again.
Ron and Lisa Irving


Hello Colin and Team,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent catering you provided for my retirement party on Saturday last (13th Aug). The timing was perfect and as we had arranged. The canapés, hogroast and pudding were delicious and generated rave comments from all 150 people there.
Many thanks for helping make the day so special for me, and effortless for my family.
Dr. Adrian Davies,


Just to thank you very much for cooking a splendid feast on Saturday at my daughter’s wedding. Value for money was tremendous, many people came up to me and complemented me on the caterer. Your pork crackling is still a talking point and again has been highly praised. Everybody had ample food to eat and we even managed to feed the evening crowd as well. Your salads were incredible.
I found you and your assistant to be highly efficient and friendly.
Thank you very much indeed : I would recommend you to anybody.

Tess Wilson


Dear Colin / Sean and Staff,
I have read the testimonials on your website and decided none of them do justice to the quality of food and service you provide!
The occasion was my retirement from TataSteel after 45 years, serving among other things as a Quality Assurance Manager, so I know about quality in all its different guises.
Having never done this sort of thing before, the guidance given on choice of menu and procurement of marquee and the various accessories was second to none.
The feedback from my guests to date has been excellent and I am certain the evening will bring you more business. Anyone considering marriage celebrations should consider this route as being cheaper and tastier, rather than the fare traditionally provided at a fancy hotels. For reasons of our own we chose to source the Canapés from others suppliers, however I suspect those that can be provided by Spitting Pig would be excellent.
Anyone expecting a piece of pork in a bread bun being thrown at you in passing can think again. We chose to have a Wild Boar roasted, at considerable extra expense, but after 7 hours this was cooked to perfection, and worth every penny!
To accompany the Boar, we booked three salads, Waldorf, Fresh Green leaf and TOMATO AND BASIL. They were all very good, but the latter was fabulous, made with Colin’s own hydroponically grown tomatoes of multifarious varieties.
We chose 2 deserts, Fresh Fruit flan and Lemon and Lime Cheesecake. The Cheesecake in particular was exceptional – Who is your supplier Colin? I want some for our dinner parties!
The two serving girls hired to man the bar and serve the food were very friendly, hard working and professional.
Colin – I think you have got the message by now – VERY WELL DONE!
Richard & Colette Fretwell

Hi Colin

Just wanted to say thank you for the great service we received at our daughter’s wedding. Everyone commented on the wonderful food and how helpful & friendly you and all your staff were. It all helped to make our day a memorable one so thank you so much! I definitely would have no problem recommending you to anyone. It’s always good to have confidence in your supplier and you certainly lifted a weight off our shoulders!


Rosie & Mac


Hello Colin,

I hope you are well. Just a little note to say very big thank you to you and your excellent team. The day was more than perfect and your team and yourself were one of the major contributors to it. The standard of waitress service was extremely efficient and friendly. The culinary standard was excellent both for the main reception and the evening barbeque. The canapes were exceptional. All the guests enjoyed the food immensely and have since then spoken many a times about it. Thank you for all the hard work you put in. We were indeed fortunate to have found you. Thank you for making our special day so much more special. We would not hesitate in recommending you to any one.

Thank you once again.

Sarah and Christopher


Hi Colin,

Firstly, apologies for the delay in sending this email. With honeymoons and one thing and another, the weeks seem to have flown by!

I really want to say a massive thank you to you, and all the team that helped provide the food for our wedding on May 21st 2011. Before the event, the communication and advice you gave us was invaluable and you really knew what would be a success!

On the day of the reception, you arrived with your team and got straight to work. I never saw anyone stop all day. Despite constant interuptions from me (for which I’m sorry!!), everyone remained so friendly and really got into the spirit of the day. The atmosphere from you guys was tremendous and it was like having friends or family doing the catering.

I am also so grateful for the help you and the team gave us on the day. The team really had a massive task as we had 170 guests to seat and feed! The girls set up 17 tables for us, and each table looked fabulous. I honestly could not have done that without your help!

On to the food…..WOW, what can I say!! The canapes were beautiful and really well presented and got the evening off to a flying start. For the meal we had pork and beef and I watched the pig roasting away all day. When we sat down to eat I can honestly say, it was the best meat I have ever tasted, and the crackling was absolutely delicious. The guests have since told us that they thought the food was amazing and that they were going back four and five times for more!! People have sent cards to us thanking us for the invite, and commenting on how much they all enjoyed the hog roast, (and don’t forget, a lot of these guys are farmers and they know good meat!!).

So, thankyou so much for helping to make our day absolutely magical. Without your help I know it would not have been nearly as sucessful and I would have no hestitations what so ever in recommending you to anyone who wanted a hog roast wedding!!

Kind regards

Rebecca Ghiloni (nee Pickard)

Kind Regards
Julie Collinson

Office Manager


Hi Colin

Just a quick note to thank you for the most delicious hog roast – brilliantly cooked & served and much appreciated by our guests. Several said it was the best they’d ever had…… and there were quite a few farmers there who know quality pork when they taste it.

A big bonus was that you were as tidy as you said you’d be too!

We would happily recommend you to anyone.

Kind regards
Gail Dodgson


Hi Colin,

I know our event was over a week ago but I haven’t really had a chance to sit down and email you until now!! I wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did last weekend. The food was outstanding, so many people have made a point of coming to tell me how much they enjoyed it and you were both so friendly and helpful, it made all the difference!!
We were so impressed that you did a hog roast in such freezing conditions and the salads, quiche and burgers were delicious too. It was just what we wanted – real quality service. We will be having a summer staff party so expect a call to book you in for then!!

Thanks again, I hope you are having a relaxing Christmas,

Best Wishes,



Just a quick note to thank you for all your hard work on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed the hog roast and I will not hesitate to recommend your services.
Thanks again

I hired Colin and his team for my 60th birthday party, the food was excellent and all freshly prepared on site, the presentation was very good and all of my friends were very impressed they are still talking about it, I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking of holding any type of function.

Would like to thank yourself and Melanie for the excellent hog roast thanks again, Happy New Year!
