World Class Hog Roast Options from Big Roast
Big Roast was founded by two guys passionate about hog roasts. Since 2006 we have catered for over 1000 hog roast events across London, Essex and Kent. Our hog roasts will lift the profile of your event while being light on your pocket.We take a whole pig – gutted and cleaned – and set in on a spit within one of our custom made hog roasting machines. The pig is then slow cooked over the next six/seven hours.The chef then slowly carves both meat and crackling off the carcass and serves delicious pork to your guests.
Our Hog roasts are ideally suited to outdoor events and the weatherproof nature of our machines means that even in inclement weather, we can still cook outside – even if the meat has to be served indoors. If you let us know how many people you need to cater for we will provide a suitable hog that will ensure that all your guests are well fed.

A hog roast is our longest event – and customers should allow around seven hours from our arrival until all food served to customers. A normal event will take the following structure:
- We arrive about seven hours before serving.
- After our initial set up, the hog takes about 5 hours to be cooked on the spit roast.
- Our experienced chef will take an hour to cut the meat from the bone.
- We recommend serving the hog straight from the machine to keep it nice and warm, and serving around takes around 1 – 1.5 hours.
- We serve our hog with apple sauce and customers can choose to serve themselves rolls and any salads you have ordered.
- We clean and clear away, leaving you to enjoy your event.
Please call if you have any questions. Our hog roasters are produced for us under license in South Africa and have been specifically designed to balance the meat and ensure an even cooking.
You made our day extra special
I just wanted to say thanks for Saturday and a big thanks to Dino who was a star. It worked really well and everyone had a great time. Oh and the food was great too!
That's it for family events for us for a while but we will be in touch again.
Thank you for another great event for our youngest daughter's christening. The food was delicious, Dave handled everything superbly from start to finish and helped ensure the day ran smoothly.
Response: Harriet - it has been a pleasure to look after your run of family events
Thanks very much for making the party effortless
Just to say Kristian and Tony did a great job yesterday, many people commented on the meat, thanks very much for making the party effortless!
The best we have ever had!
The Hog Roast on Saturday was delicious - voted the best that we have had (this is number four!)As a matter of interest, we had catered for 80 (ish) guests and around 60 turned up in the end. Quite a few did go for seconds but we managed to polish the whole thing off with people still after more! Can we please ask you to put 20th December 2014 in your diary for our next event (when we will make sure that we order plenty)?
Absolutely amazing food!
I just wanted to say a massive thanks for last night's hog roast, absolutely amazing food including all of the salads and a big thanks to nevi and klodi for great service.
A really well organised & managed hog roast
Just wanted to say thanks to you guys for a really well organised & managed hog roast.
You really took all the stress out of the occasion, and we were able to enjoy ourselves, whilst you did the hard work!
We will definitely recommend you, and pass our thanks on to Deano (if that's how you spell it!) who was great.
Thanks for a great hog roast last Saturday
We had a really good time and people are still talking about how good the hog was! Sebastian & Lauren were a real asset, too. Suitably gushing review has been posted.
One question - where did you get your pop-up gazebo from? We have been looking for something just like that for ages. I took a photo of the label but it was out of focus... or maybe I was out of focus...
Best Hog Roast Ever!
Sebastian & Lauren were fantastic - the hog was brought in to our garden, cooked, served and taken away again cleanly & efficiently. Everybody raved about the hog, which was quite delicious and it was the high point of a really successful party. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the best hog roast ever!
My party went like a dream
Will was very efficient and produced an excellent spit roast. Will was also very helpful and polite, all my guests were very impressed, several asked for your card, which he gave them, so I feel sure that you will be getting more customers. Thank you so much for making the spit roast a great success.
Stunning Hog Roast
Myself and the team would like to pass on our thanks to yourself and your spectacular team for your professionalism throughout our event.
We will most definitely acquire your skills in future.
I will definitely be recommending your company to others.
Sorry to be late replying - I have been enjoying prolonged birthday celebrations last week!
We were absolutely delighted with the hog roast. The chefs were incredibly friendly and cooperative. The food was absolutely delicious and we got several comments from guests to this effect. The quantities were perfect - enough on the night and a little for us to enjoy the next day, but not too much.
Thank you for making our day so wonderful.
We booked big roast for our company BBQ, Gary was very helpful in the planning and then on the day our chef arrived Sebastian who was amazing he set up got everything ready for our guess and then cooked us the most amazing food. Everyone commented on how great the food was and the service. We would definitely use Big roast again.
We will definitely use you again.
Have left you a review, but just wanted to say a personal thank you to you for helping me organise it at such late notice.
It was a real success and couldn't have run smoother. The food was delicious and we had lots of lovely compliments.
It has been a pleasure to do business with you
I wanted to let you know how delighted we were with Big Roast on Saturday. Thomas was a great cook, he was helpful and charming and friendly towards our guests. The pork was superb and the leftovers provided a late night supper for those staying the night. Big Roast were a great choice for my party.It has been a pleasure to do business with you personally, you have always been very helpful, offering good advice and information. Thank You.
Civil Partnership celebration
Our Civil Partnership celebration went extremely well. Dan, our chef for the day was fantastic. He was well organised and thorough. So helpful and worked so hard. Everyone really enjoyed the food.
We would definitely recommend your company to anyone thinking of using them. From the initial talks with Gary and the days running up to the event we were very impressed. The day went without a hitch and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Thank you so much. I would use Big Roast in the future for sure.
40th Wedding Anniversary Celebratio
Thanks to you and your team for supplying a friendly and efficient Hog Roast for our 40th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. It was cooked to perfection and with all the salads, proved a big hit with all our guests. Tommy our Chef did really well and was great help throughout the day. We would not hesitate in recommending your services in the future.
We will definitely book you again
The fun day went very well yesterday. We were anxious about the weather due to the forecasts, but the rain held off until the end of the event, then it rained for only a short period. Please thank Sebastian & Co for the catering provided yesterday. They arrived early and were friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with the quality of the sausages and burgers. We will definitely book you again if we decide to use caterers for our event next year and recommend you to others.
Response: Excellent - We are very pleased the event went so well and we will pass on your thanks to Sebastian & Co
Party on the 13th July
Hi Gary wanted to thank you very much for helping organise the event. It went down really well Andrus was also very helpful.
I had many guest comment on the food, and my wife who is a keen caterer/chef was also very pleased, I am glad she was able to sit down and enjoy her day rather than running around cooking and serving.
Again many thanks, I\'m sure we will be back.
I would recommend you to anyone without hesitation
The hog roast couldn't have been any better, everybody loved it, it was so delicious! The chef was brilliant very friendly and professional, he chatted to the guests and was lovely to have at our event. Thank you very much.
We are sold on the attraction of a Hog Roast
Hi Gary, A quick note to express our thanks for your help in the planning and Will's on the day for the roast we had on 27 May. Your advice on the ordering of our roast was spot on and as you'd guided Will managed the day without a glitch. We were able to concentrate on our guests and the party in the confidence that Will had everything under control - which he did. I would be happy to recommend Big Roast and use the team again, and from the comments of our guests think that several of them are sold on the attractions of using your company. Many thanks.
A huge thank you to you and your team
Sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you with feedback on the hog roast for our wedding on 25th August. It's been a busy time settling into married life, plus a new house and new job!
The hog roast was absolutely excellent! It gave us real peace of mind to know the food was being prepared by experts and it allowed us to properly enjoy our day.
Your team were friendly, helpful, great with our guests and very hard-working. In particular, cooking outside during a major downpour was very impressive.
The lasting memory was how really good the food was! Guests kept coming back for more, and many took leftovers home. Everyone seemed very happy indeed! Loads of people commented that it was the best hog roast they had ever had.
A huge thank you to you and your team. I will be definitely be passing your name onto other friends who are getting married, and will contact you in the future myself!
