Hog Roast Highbridge

The Best Hog Roasts in Highbridge

highbridge

Highbridge is a harbour town whose wharves were part of its early development.  They date back farther than 1797 and at that time, it was a very small village of only a few dozen houses and an inn.  In 1797 a cattle market began in Highbridge and drainage schemes cropped up as well.  The need for drainage is not surprising if you consider the town was completely under the sea until only a few thousand years ago.

So it was that Highbridge’s main source of income would have been trade and export; and when the railway came along with a new turnpike in 1842, they helped to escalate growth.  However, these were both closed down abruptly in the latter part of that century which caused a sudden downturn.  It wasn’t until the mid-1900’s that the town could once again experience prosperity and this came due to the advent of the M5 motorway.

Leaders in Our Field

I had been asked to cater an outdoor summer event in Highbridge to assist with fundraising for their local animal rescue centre.  They weren’t expecting a huge crowd, only a couple hundred folk, so I opted to take my Hogmaster hog roasting machine along with me.

When I arrived for Hog Roast Highbridge, I was given a small marquee under which to work and as the day began, I was quickly set up and had the meat roasting on the spit. I had decided to roast only one side of a whole hog and some potatoes along with it. As well, I had a table was set up next to me with condiments and rolls in order to make some great sandwiches.
