At Great Big Pig we believe the fun and theatre of a Hog Roast or BBQ catered event should be for everyone to enjoy.

With our Platinum Hog Roaster (which can cook up to 2 large pigs) or our nearly 6 foot long Gas or Wood burning BBQ Grills we can cater for large gatherings of over 200-300 like weekend festivals, corporate events, weddings, village fetes/fairs and even sports events. However we can also provide our services for as few as 30 people, making us perfect for smaller, more intimate events such as birthday or anniversary parties, house warming’s or any other family gathering. Hog Roast & BBQ events are more accessible than ever before, so why not let us take care of the stress and worry of your catering to make your party one to remember.

We are perfectly situated to serve most of Surrey, Hampshire and Sussex

About

ABOUT ME


I have well over 24 years’ experience in the catering industry, working my way up from porter all the way to head chef. The majority of my career has been working in pubs which have enjoyed very large gardens with barbeque outbuildings. My time spent in these establishments has allowed me to hone my pulled pork, slow cooked and grilled meat skills.

Great Big Pig is a family run business – this means with GBP you get a friendly, personal service, from your initial enquiry to the event day and beyond – with help and advice on how to use left overs, we are only an email or call away.

WHAT WE DO


Everything, from the meat we choose to the fruit and veg we use in our homemade stuffing, cider apple sauce and the large selection of salads, vegetables and potatoes we offer, are all fresh locally-sourced produce from green grocers, butchers and suppliers I’ve used over my many years in the trade, so you can rest assured that only the best quality ingredients make their way to your event. Vegetarian, Vegan options and Gluten free bread can be made available on request and full details of any allergens in dishes is also available in accordance with allergens awareness guidelines.

We will arrive at the venue well in advance of your designated service time to take care of our set up and once all your guests have nice full tummies we aim to be tidied away and off site as promptly as possible to allow you your space back.


Our service includes the use of our Platinum Hog Roaster, Gas or Wood burning BBQ grill and a fully set up service area, at least one highly trained chef to prepare and serve food, the top grade disposable plates and cutlery we use as standard are eco friendly, recycled from production to disposal, napkins and a selection of condiments. We also work with local suppliers to be able to provide you with anything from Crockery and Cutlery to tables and chairs and even marques for your event if needed.

Hog Roast

Of course we can cook whole pigs, lambs and chicken but also smaller joints including beef brisket, lamb or pork shoulders and even fish and vegetarian options. We can also prepare roasted hand carved meats served on platters for you to enjoy Banquet style for your more formal sit down event. We can tailor almost every part of our service to best fit in with your plan of the perfect event

Our prices are based on the traditional 12 hour slow cooked and pulled pork with our soft confit shallot and herb stuffing, cider braised apple sauce and crackling served in a soft floury bap or wrap. Other Meat, joints, fish, items and prices are available on request.

£7.50 per guest for 30-100

BBQ

We are now very proud to be able to offer a Great Big BBQ option for your event.

As with all our catered event packages we start with our highly trained chef and 2 hours of cooking/service time, we also include rolls and wraps, eco friendly disposable plates, knives and forks, napkins and a selection of condiments. Also as with our Hog packages you can add salads and sides as you like.

BBQ Grill Options

Gas Powered: a very quick set up and close down option, flat grill attached to a proprane tank, cooking temperature is reached almost straight away which means quick cooking for a fast turnaround, probably best for evening events and getting lots of people fed quickly. £125 flat fee

Wood/Coal Burning: this option takes a little longer to set up and close down, getting the best burn for cooking is well worth the wait however, as the wood allows a better variation of slow-cooking and flame-grilled with a fuller grill flavour, this is a great luxurious option for longer day events. £200 flat fee

We aim to give our clients the most choice possible to make sure your event is exactly as you want it. With that in mind we offer a huge selection of meat*, fish*, and vegetarian items to grill in a “build you own menu” style. You can pick as many items as you like from the list below, let us know the quantities you require of each item, and we will send you a personalised quote.

Happy Customers

A very happy customer, we booked a hog and beef roast for a family party, with sides and potatoes, it was all delicious. So much so that when it was served, a hush developed over the party as everyone devoured the food.

Chef included wraps/rolls, sauces and disposable plates and cutlery and the tables to serve from. It made the whole party a lot more enjoyable for us the hosts, as everything was taken care of by the Great Big Pig company, leaving us to party with our guests.

We will definitely be using them again and would recommend them to anyone that wants a stress free time.

I booked Great Big Pig for my husband’s birthday during the bank holiday weekend. I had never booked a Hog Roast before and after seeing an advertisement on Facebook thought I would give it a try, I am so glad I did.

Daniel arrived on time to set up for the guests and the whole day from start to finish was fantastic. I had also ordered a few side dishes from Daniel, the Apricot Cous Cous and Potato Salad, and they were delicious. I was so impressed with the quality of the food and Daniel’s professionalism that I have booked him again for a birthday party in July. I am extremely pleased we found the Great Big Pig, we entertain regularly and will certainly book him each year.
