Fordingbridge is a picturesque town at the edge of the New Forest surrounded by countryside. One of the main features of the town is the Great Bridge with seven arches and the town dates back to the 13th century. It is also a very historical town as there is the Rockbourne Roman Villa to visit; stately houses, gardens and a museum. Its name comes from the word Forde translated as bridge. The pretty River Avon also runs through it and there is plenty to do.
I would now like to introduce the hog roast, in olden times they used to put a pig on a spit roast, now if you use a hog roast machine you can cook anything from pork to free range chickens. Hog roast Fordingbridge just does not supply the meat but a range of menus to go with it including fish such as salmon or vegetarian dishes. We can supply salads such a Waldorf salad, or a basic salad, potatoes, seasonal vegetables, canapés and puddings such as a Chocolate torte. If you require a more complex menu we can supply drinks on arrival, we also include everything that you need from serviettes waiting on staff if required. We are also flexible we can deviate from a set menu and produce a menu suited to your tastes if Uncle Sam wants apple pie and custard we can add it on to your menu. Hog roast Fordingbridge has a reputation for making the hosts dream come true.
Now George one of our customers had been to a hog roast before, and wanted to do one of his own. He rang up and ordered the lamb and hog roast machine. Hog roast hire Fordingbridge delivered it, demonstrated it to him and arranged to pick it up the next day. He set it up and as the meat cooked in its own juices he had time to mix with his guests. The cooking process was simpler than he thought and still had time to enjoy his anniversary party. Everyone complimented him on the lamb it became a sort of talking point and his wife was impressed. Hog roast hire Fordingbridge picked it up the following day and he booked it for another event later in the year. Aunty May had too much wine and made him dance to Lady Gaga with her he said that was an experience.
