Hog Roast Services for Weddings In the Midlands, Derby and Leicester!

The hog roast has become one of our most popular menu requests, for weddings and other outside events. We will cook a locally reared pig in front of your guests, and our Chef will carve it on to a warming plate and serve directly to your guests either in a bap, crusty bread or as part of a more substantial buffet. We cater to the Midlands area, including Derby, Leicester and Tamworth.

A Whole Hog Roast caters for approximately 100 people (includes baps, apple sauce, tomato, brown and BBQ sauce) with no other menu options.

There are many other available options to accompany your buffet. Prices can be negotiated when in conjunction with other service from Saffron Catering. Every event will be quoted on its own merit.

Also available are hot pork, apple and stuffing baps, served from chaffing dishes

We can also offer platters of the following:

Creamy coleslaw
Potato salad
Pasta salad
