Here is what you can expect when you book with our team today…

At the start of January, Hog Roast Brixham was contacted by Elaine to arrange catering for her mother’s funeral. The wake was set to take place at a local social club that her mother frequently visited, with 150 friends and family members in attendance. For the menu, we were asked to provide a delicious buffet that would have plenty to go around and would provide a hearty and filling buffet lunch for the guests. After looking through our catering packages, Elaine decided that a classic hog roast would be the perfect addition to the event and our team got to work on perfecting the menu.

Hog Roast BrixhamOn the day of the funeral, the Hog Roast Brixham team arrived at the social club in the morning and began to prepare for the 2:00pm serving time. We began by slow-roasting the hog and allowing it over five hours to cook to perfection. Once it was packed full of natural juices and flavours it was expertly carved by our chef and served in fresh bread rolls, alongside sage and onion stuffing, homemade applesauce, and crispy crackling. For meat-free guests, we provided BBQ-pulled jackfruit, which is a delicious alternative to pulled pork. For the sides, we served homemade chips and a selection of seasonal salad dishes to create a varied and delicious main meal. Overall, our catering was a great addition to the event and helped to create a bright atmosphere at what was already a wonderful and memorable wake.
