As the seasons progress here at hog roast Abergele, we see subtle changes in the style and scale of the catering we deliver. Once the epi-centre of the local tourist trade; Abergele is a historical centre within North Wales, so there are a diverse range of cultural events going on all year round. Our catering team has established a firm presence at many of these occasions, as well as serving the people of our town and its businesses, to bring the ceremonious spectacle of the hog roast to their private parties and functions. The twice-monthly farmer’s market, one of the busiest of its type in North Wales showcases a fine selection of produce, including some of the prime animals we source for our own roasts. Towards the end of spring, the hog roast Abergele catering team starts to head out for an increasing number of weddings and garden parties. As well as serving succulent meat that is cooked to perfection, we also aim to make a lasting impression with our side dishes and alternative menus. Whether it’s a mouth watering snack in a roll, or a full sit-down meal you want, we tailor our service to meet your specifications.
The summer months sees the city host several festivals, including the Folk and roots festival. The popular annual Abergele carnival takes place in July, where tourists flock in to witness performances of weird and wonderful street theatre amidst the stately beauty of the town’s architecture. Compliment this scene with one or two of our state-of-the art roasts crackling away and you’ve got passion, entertainment and theatre in every sense of the word! The wettest summer for a century doesn’t appear to have put a dampener on business for us; we take marquees in the van for our outdoor bookings to ensure that conditions do not prevent us from making occasions that little bit more unique. If anything, we find that when things turn inclement, people are even more appreciative of those unmistakeable sights, sounds, smells and most importantly flavours putting a smile on their faces and keeping hunger at bay – sunshine on a turning spit!
It has been event after event after event in the recent months. Weddings are always excellent events to cater at and here at hog roast Abergele we have the dedication to make sure that your extra special day is exactly that. We arrived at the venue early in order to get everything ready whilst the bride and groom were married across town. Guests were greeted by the front of house staff and then treated to a selection of canapés as they were shown to their tables. The main of spit roasted pig served with seasonal vegetables and roasted new potatoes in rosemary and garlic went down a treat with many guests complimenting the food and the service as the waiting staff served drinks to whoever needed them. For desert the guests were treated to wedding cake that was generously provided by the bride and groom. We have catered for many wedding receptions recently but none were as successful as this one for us with us receiving many recommendations from guests and testimonials were also sent to the office!
The unfolding panorama as Keats walked alongside the forts and follies inspired his poem’ ‘Ode to autumn’. I’m sure he’d wax lyrical about the sight of a moist ,golden-roasted pig glinting in the October sunset and the crunch of our beautiful crackling, to match the russets and browns of the crisp leaves which form such a resplendent pathway, I think I’ll abandon my aspirations to be poet laureate and stick to being a great hog roast caterer!
Towards the end of the year and into Christmas and the New Year, people are just as keen to sample the sensory delights of our pig roasts, gathering round the evocative glow of the cooking animal and leaving with delicious food to keep them warm and happy. So that’s a taste of the year-round appeal of Hog Roast Abergele Our team can provide quality produce, professional service and, of course, a spectacle to remember whether you’re catering for 20 people or 200.
