The Domesday Book features a town called Bix but today you’ll know Bix as the Greater London Borough of Bexley. Until the 1800s, Bexley was barely occupied, and at one time was said to have just 41 residents. Today, the borough is a thriving and diverse community, with a fascinating history and plenty of fabulous sights for both locals and visitors to enjoy. Where else can you find William Morris’ Red House, the stately home of Hall Place or Danson House, the Georgian mansion in the centre of one of our pretty parks? And it’s incredible to think but our borough actually owns and maintains over a hundred parks and open spaces overall. We’re so green you would never think we were so close to the centre of London (well, depending on traffic!)
I chose to settle in Bexley many years ago and I’ve been helping to make parties and events big successes here ever since. As a Spitting Pig chef, I get to cook my absolute favourite food just about every day, meet all kinds of lovely people from all walks of life and make them happy with our tasty grub and professional service with a smile. To be honest, I wouldn’t want to do that anywhere but Bexley.
Like many locals over the years, you may be planning to marry at Bexley’s ancient parish church of St Mary the Virgin. For more than 800 years, the church has welcomed the community and joined couples in matrimony. After your ceremony at this lovely landmark, your wedding reception could feature a stunning hog roast centrepiece at the venue of your choice.
If you’re celebrating a birthday, engagement or christening (or any other special occasion that you have in mind), we can cater anything from our delicious pigs in buns to multiple-course sit-down meals with a variety of tasty options. Alternatively, you may be thinking of a picnic on the Thames, which flows through Bexley, or a corporate event at one of our sports clubs, as we often cater events held in their grounds. You can also hire or even buy one of our hog roast machines and host a DIY event.
Whatever you have in mind in the Bexley area, let us do the work while you relax with your guests.
