PORKERS, VENISON, BOAR & SO MUCH MORE...
Informal eating is fun, it’s primal and sweeps away
social inhibition: pick up a drumstick, gnaw at a rib or suck on a
crab claw; this decadently informal eating is a subliminal bond for
friends and lovers. If this sounds good, if you're up for informal
dining, what could be more primal than the hog roast?
Throughout history carcasses sizzling,
dripping, crisping over an open fire, have been at the heart of
celebration. Today we offer this service at its best providing:
a most amenable and proficient team to serve our customers;

THE ULTIMATE ROAST STARTS WITH THE ULTIMATE MEAT
We have bred pigs for many years, farming them for our restaurant and
then for our hog roasts farming traditional breeds and early hybrids:
Berkshires, Large Blacks, Old Spots, and Tamworths.
Pigs Their diet made our
pigs special: they loved their beer and were given 32 pints a week
from the cleaning of beer lines. They also emptied our drip trays, and
demanded the ullage from every cask, and they revelled in it.
Generosity Cured The Hog A restaurant owned pig is like the butcher’s
dog, but our pigs have always been bred too well. The three gilts
pictured being served their beer had just been brought in from natural
foraging in woodland for fattening.

Our hog roasts became so popular that we
eventually sold our restaurant to devote ourselves to our Hog Roast
Of course we offer more than just hogs; why
not try wild boar, venison or a rotisserie of chickens or game birds.
Venison & Wild Boar We believe we ran the foremost game restaurant in
Britain. A flavour of our kitchen can be sampled by clicking our
WILD BOAR is a
leaner meat than farmed pork, especially pub-farmed pork. As our
native pig species it has a natural pork taste that is best described
as being the way pork ought to taste.
season we can provide genuine wild game boar from feral British
animals and those from the forests of Europe; out of the game season
we offer a farmed version.
WILD VENISON is a healthy natural meat with
less fat than skinned chicken breast, and it is very low in
cholesterol. It is an incredibly rich source of iron and omega 3 and a
free range animal, that has foraged for natural food will be free from
the drugs, antibiotics and growth promoters.
taste of venison varies according to the breed and how long the meat
has been hung, but it needs to be served rare.
RED DEER has a
dark and fairly heavily grained meat and has the most robust flavour
of our native deer.
has a good depth of flavour but a finer grained meat than the red.
Both of these meats can be compared to prime beef.
DEER is lighter in colour and a sweeter meat.
MUNTJAC is the most pale and delicate of our familiar
our wild game with supermarket venison, which will have been farmed,
probably in New Zealand. The organic drug free assurances of native
free-range meat cannot be assumed in in the farmed proiduct. Imported
venison is also likely to have been in cold storage for months.
Whilst some people might be sensitive about
tucking into Bambi it needs to be understood that the liberty our
native deer enjoy would not exist without responsible herd management.
There has to be control and it would be criminal to cull these animals
and not respect their rightful place in the food chain.
If you are an animal lover your best action
is to eat venison with a clear conscience, whilst driving responsibly
in areas where deer are likely to bound out in front of your car.

The Venison Persuasion... You don’t have to venture beneath Sherwood’s merry
canopy, in green tights, to enjoy a good spit roasting: venison or
boar, and a whole lot more, can all be delivered to your door.

English preference is to see the roast as a large joint of meat, where
many, particularly across the Atlantic, prefer a bit more theatre in

Wild Boar Are Back In Great Britain Wild Boar were hunted to extinction in Great
Britain centuries ago, but there has been localised reintroduction and
escapes from captivity have reestablished a wild population. Wild Boar
are now also farmed in England.
Wild Boar arrive at Hog Roast Service HQ from local shoots.
The skin of wild boar cooks black and is unlike the crackling on
domestic hogs which results from on the animal’s natural fat.
The farming of Wild Boar makes this
delicious and healthy meat available to us with some dependability.

Treat Your Guests To A Touch Of Class We've all seen it, the barbecue where
somebody is cooking up burgers on a metal foot-scrapper in half an oil
drum, where charcoal is flaring with dripping fat, coating the food in
a sickly oily soot. If you're a celebrity in the jungle, and being
paid handsomely to experience inconvenience for TV, this approach
might be seen as luxury. If you're back in the UK and treating guests,
make sure they feel treated: use the Hog Roast Service.
