Good afternoon, I would just like to say a massive thank you for catering our party yesterday! It was gorgeous and an absolute hit for everyone that came. The team was so friendly and professional, despite how hot it was they absolutely smashed it for us! Nothing was too much for them, even taking into account that it was a surprise party, they waited for us to surprise our mother in law and then they begun setting up! The best catering in the north east! Even from the amazing communication with you guys over email/text message , it’s all been perfect and no stress involved on our end at all. Thank you so much! I’m sure we will be using your team again for future events! Thank you! Kind regards Jess

Hi Penny, So sorry for the late reply, we have just got back from our honeymoon. Jarrod and his team were absolutely brilliant on our wedding day. Working in horrendous weather conditions they provided the most fabulous wedding meal for us and our guests. Everyone commented on how delicious and high quality the food was and how friendly the staff were. We are so grateful for how much effort they put in to our reception and please pass on our thanks. I spoke to Jarrod briefly before the team left and he was soaked through due to the torrential rain and said he has never worked such a wet event. For the team and himself to work through that says a lot for them and the company so we  thank you all so very much! Kindest regards, Abbie

You guys catered our wedding from start to finish and i couldn't have been happier with everything! The staff were so lovely and the biggest thank you to the lovely young man (sorry i didn't grab your name) who came whilst i was full greeting mode and asked me which Canapes i wanted most and then a few minutes later came back to me with my own mini plate of them all to make sure i got some (and i later found out he did it for my husband aswell) It was honestly the sweetest gesture and i loved it! Everything else was phenomenal and both day and evening guests had a feast! Cant thank you enough. 10 stars from us. Ashley

Hi Penny, It was absolutely spot on, thank you. Jarrod was great at communication, I felt very confident before the event that I was in safe hands. At the event he was very organised and professional, he just got on with things, no fuss. The food was delicious, a lot of people complemented the pork and there was so much left over. Good job we love it! Would certainly recommend Spitting Pig to other and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Thank you for everything.

Booked you guys for our football end of year party and you were great, just what we wanted. The Hog Roast and the apple sauce were perfect and were a welcome addition on a cold night. The young ones and the dads equally enjoyed everything and we normally struggle to pick something both ends of the age range enjoy. Will definitely book you gain when we need you! Cheers, Jacob

Hi Penny I would love to have another event to use The Spitting Pig might have to just make one up. The food was amazing meat was so tender and the size of the Yorkshire puddings and being homemade and not frozen ones added that extra special bit to the occasion. All comments from my daughter (the bride) and all guests was never ending about how amazing the food was. My dad is the fussiest eater going and he finished all of his meal. The staff were amazing service with a smile and a chat. It makes a difference if you got nice friendly staff. I would highly recommend The Spitting Pig to anyone. I couldn't fault a thing.

Hi Penny,

Apologies just getting back to you now. I was busy after our event then on my annual leave and just catching up on anything I have outstanding now !

I just wanted to say everyone was raving about the food on the day and it certainly helped for the afternoon session of our training day when you often hit a bit of a lull!

Great choice, full of flavour and many going for seconds.  I can confirm it took a while for the menu to be agreed as you have such a good choice of options/menus. We were also given any food that was leftover, eaten later that day, the following day and some food even being taken home.  I think you could say it was a hit.  I myself being a vegan really enjoyed the jackfruit option and nice to have something a bit different.

I also want to mention the courtesy call I received from Jarrod the week before confirming all the details and also just prior their arrival on the day.  The is the second time we have used your service and no doubt not the last.

Thanks again and apologies not getting back to you sooner.

Kind Regards,

Hog Roast North East

Hi everyone, Nicky and I would like to thank everyone for the service we received at our wedding reception on Saturday 11th January. The team who arrived were amazing, friendly and very professional, and happy to take the time to walk around the venue to find the most efficient way to stage and cook the meal. From my perspective, the clean-up seemed to be quick and easy as everything was repacked into the van before we knew they had begun packing the equipment away. None of our guests or ourselves had any complaints regarding the quality or quantity of food that was provided. Many of our guests were extremely satisfied with the service and food provided. We having nothing bad to say regarding the Spitting Pig Hog Roast based on Saturdays performance. Thank you for everything.

Hello Mandy and all at Spitting Pig North East! Thank you so much for all your help with the preparations for our daughter’s wedding blessing reception this last Saturday, 11th June 2016 (St. Nicholas’ church hall, Guisborough). Please would you pass on our special thanks to Louise and the team who turned up on the day, and did a wonderful job. We very much regret being so busy (and forgetful on the day!) that we didn’t offer them a drink or anything, but they kindly helped out our guests when they needed a cup of tea. And they sorted out tables for the evening buffet and left everything that was needed. I was also very aware that they were working in a cramped space, surrounded by all the reception drink and glasses – they really did a wonderful job, so please would you pass on our grateful thanks. The guests all expressed their appreciation of the food, and the service provided – it was all delicious, and just what our happy couple wanted (they booked you sight unseen from Singapore). It was such a relief to know that the catering was in capable hands. We would gladly recommend you to anybody needing catering for a function of any sort! With our best wishes, and kind regards,
