Ruislip is an area with heritage sites aplenty, there’s many local heritage sites where settlements from before the Domesday Book was created are still in existence right now. The 13th century erected St Martin’s Church is still standing and used today, as well. In the 20th century the Met Railway helped to get development really going and from there the rest is history. An important landmark is the Ruislip Lido, which was once a reservoir but is now a parkland with its own miniature railway that’s open to the public. The toponymy of Ruislip is interesting. The town appeared in the Domesday Book but it wasn’t as Ruislip, it was as Ruislip, which is believed to mean ‘leaping place on the river where the rushes grow’, a supposed head nod to the River Pinn, the river which flows through the town. Some landmarks of the town apart from the Lido are the Manor Farm and the Village Square. The Manor Farm contains ancient settlements which are dated as far back as the 9th century. The Orchard Hotel is another interesting bit of architecture. At one point the Orchard was a Beefeater steak house. It was a favourable spot during the Battle of Britain, the No. 303 Polish fighter Squadron in particular, who were stationed nearby, would go to the hotel to celebrate their victory. It’s reckoned that for every German aircraft felled by the Polish Fighter Squadron, the owner of the hotel would open a bottle of Champagne in celebration.
For any champagne-opening celebration a pig roasted by Spitting Pig never goes amiss.

We recently catered at a wedding in Ruislip, which is something we have done on many occasions. Our dedication and professional team managed to create the perfect menu at the request of the customer. We worked closely with the bride to ensure every aspect of the menu was down to a tee! We roasted hog and lamb at the venue and prepared all their respective accompaniments. The main was also served with seasonal vegetables and roasted new potatoes in rosemary and garlic. All was served in a buffet style with guests appearing at the serving table to request their meal. Once the guests had eaten their main we served wedding cake that had been generously provided by the bride and groom. We served it with a melee of ripe berries, a Coulis of Summer fruits and fresh cream. It was truly a wonderful day and it was a pleasure to cater at such an incredible event.
