50 is the new 40 or is it 30, and Hog Roast East Grinstead were delighted to be asked to cater for 80 guests at Tabetha’s 50th birthday party at her home near Ashdown Forest where the location of the Winnie-The-Pooh stories are set. We love catering for this type of event and it is a speciality of ours alongside corporate events and weddings, but we also know that careful planning needs to be considered to ensure that everyone’s expectations are met. First point of discussion is the menu and with six to choose from ranging from an entry level option to a formal dinner and buffet, there is a selection appropriate for any type of event, number of guests and cost. In this case, it was very simple; hog in a roll please!
Here at Hog Roast East Grinstead, we are aware that there are many good caterers for this type of event but what makes us great, is our meticulous attention to detail and the high quality of our food and service; all of our chefs and serving staff appreciate and understand the importance of great tasting, high-quality food and delivering a professional service.
We arrived at Tabetha’s wonderful home and chose our spot in the garden to setup which immediately brought attention from some of her friends that were already there which increased further as we started to roast the meat! Once up and running, we started serving the food as the guests were clearly ready for it and were amazed at the quality of what we had to offer. Many came back for more and before long; the pig was devoured – which is always a good sign! The event ran without any hitch as you would expect and we received many compliments from the guests relating to the high quality of the food and professional service. Once done, we packed up discreetly to let the party continue with a spectacular firework display and Hog Roast East Grinstead were very proud to contribute to the success of this event.
