When we want to enjoy a really pleasant working day, we know that serving our hog roast Thame will always hit the spot! Thame is a civil parish in the county of Buckinghamshire, and takes its’ name from the River Thame which runs north of the town. Packed full of history, Thame has religious buildings and churches which date back to the 12th century. During Henry VIII’s reign, Thame Abbey was demolished during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, but you can still find historic features such as a 12th century font base, in the Church of England parish church of Mary the Virgin today. Tourists from all over the country travel to the area to see the magnificent church which also has 13th century transepts and a tower with a ring of eight bells.
The Thame community is a strong one, and we often bump into familiar faces when serving our hog roasts in the town. Thane Rugby Club always attracts high numbers when we hold a hog roast Thame there. Having been established back in 1963, the rugby club has become one of the most successful lower league teams in the country. They currently compete in the National Division Three South league and have an excellent youth set up. The likes of international rugby players such as Tom Varndell and Dave Seymour have all come up through the ranks there. It is no surprise to state that rugby lads have a hearty appetite and our hog roast Thame always go down a treat.
Thame is also home to the largest one day agricultural show in Great Britain. We love taking our hog roasts to Thame when it’s the Buckinghamshire County and Thame Show. Not only can you enjoy the very finest quality hog roasts in Thame courtesy of us, but there is also a whole host of attractions to keep the family entertained all day. From horse riding to cheese stalls, and cattle competitions to bouncy castles, a day out at the agricultural show in Thame is certainly not one to be missed. Make sure that you’ve packed a pair of sturdy wellington boots though because if the heavens decide to open the rain can make it very muddy indeed. However, it must be said that one of the biggest attractions in Thame are the people themselves. There is a whole host of quality pubs in the area, and the friendliness of the landlords and staff is second to none. Our hog roast Thame clients are always a pleasure to serve, as we know that we’re going to feeding some fantastic food to some fantastic people. The Thatch pub is a delightful 16th century building in a side street just off the hustle and bustle of the main road, whereas The Six Bells is a typical English country pub full of laughter and good cheer. We ensure that our Thame hog roast catering services are always of the very highest quality and thoroughly enjoy working in the town.
Nether Winchendon House is a venue we have catered at on numerous occasions here at Hog Roast Thame, most recently a wedding with 100 guests attending. It really is a striking venue and the perfect location for a wedding. Throw in a hog roast and you have a winner. As the guests turned up they were greeted with canapés such as chicken satay skewered marinated chicken strips served with a peanut dip and vegetarian mini classic tomato and mozzarella pizzas topped with sliced Greek olives. Canapés usually go down well but on this occasion they were met with rave reviews from the guests. There was no mistaking the look of anticipation on their faces as the hog was carved onto their plates with crispy crackling, apple sauce and stuffing on the side. We had also roasted some spring lamb for this event and that went down as well as the pig always does. Vegetarian options were also available by hog roast Thame: roasted butternut squash and vegetables with blue cheese crusty bread rolls and selection of sauces. It was clear to see when we were collecting the plates that we had once again delivered an exceptional catering experience. We were far from finished though with deserts and an evening barbeque still to come for the guests. Dark chocolate torte was the desert of choice to be served with fresh raspberries and Crème Fraiche. For those with any appetite left we then served hot bacon rolls and barbequed sausages as they celebrated the lovely couple’s big day!
Some people shy away from organising special occasions or functions these days, and that would seem to be a big shame, but you do have to admit that it really can amount to a lot of hard work and stress. It doesn’t really matter if you are lucky enough to have a huge house in Thame or are thinking about holding it in a specialised venue; there is still so much to sort out that it can end up being one big headache after another. The catering is one area where people get more stressed than usual, and with good reason. Sorting out good catering that almost everyone is going to enjoy is a real challenge. You want something that is going to taste brilliant with almost universal appeal yet that also has a certain air of quality to it, together with a wonderful visual appeal that makes people feel like some real effort has gone into the preparation. It is therefore no surprise that the Hog Roast Thame event has become a very popular option indeed over the last few years.
Hog roast is one catering solution that meets all those needs and much more, but it may be something that you are little mystified by. Will your Thame guests be impressed by what sounds to be a rather rough and ready catering option? Definitely. In fact the only thing rough and ready is the alternatives. Why would you want to serve up something precooked and bland for your guests when, with hog roast, you can give them a meal that is freshly cooked using the very best local meat and that is cooked there and then in one of the most visually appealing ways possible. Spit roasting not only delivers a superbly, mouth-watering aroma and a supreme flavour but it also gives you the fantastic spectacle that great catering should have. It looks special and it really does taste magical. And of course, with a dedicated chef cooking and serving the hog roast for you, it may just mean that you won’t have a headache over the catering to worry about!
