Dorset Hog Roasts & Barbecues

At Claret Catering our Hog Roasts use only the best local outdoor reared pigs, slowly cooked at your venue. Mouthwatering!

With your Hog Roast you can also have a selection of salads to add variety to your menu, or you may prefer to choose a spit roasted English lamb, delicious!

Hog Roast catering is becoming more popular for weddings too and can be served with a selection of starters and desserts.

This is a good option for smaller numbers as a whole lamb will serve up to 60, where as full grown hog can serve up to 120.

Claret Catering offer great outdoor catering solutions for your event, party or function. Barbecues and Hog Roasts are both great ways of serving a lot of people, cost effectively in a formal or informal setting.

Of course, all the trimmings are served as well…

Whilst a Hog Roast is usually served buffet style we can also offer the option of family service where we place bowls of sliced hog along with the trimmings and salads on each table.

Typically we include (but not limited to);

Crispy golden crackling
Home-made apple sauce
Sage and onion stuffing
Freshly baked baps
Hot potato wedges
Fresh green salad

We usually serve on good quality disposable tableware but we are also able to supply china plates and stainless steel cutlery along with any table linen if you prefer.

Our chef and assistant will cook, carve and serve to your guest and we can supply further staff to cover any other requirements you may have. Give us a call to discuss your event and you will be surprised how cost effective this option is.
Are there any restrictions to having a Hog Roast?

We are not restricted to just outdoor events: as long as there is space to park the hog roast spit we can serve it anywhere. As it is a mobile hog roast spit we can come to you as far away as Lulworth Castle, Sopley Mill, Nothe Fort, Smedmore House or anywhere in Dorset and Hampshire such as Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Blandford, Dorchester, Ringwood and the New Forest.
