What our customers said...
Dear Rob and Team,
What an amazing day, made oh so special with amazing food! I cannot tell you how many compliments we received (an continue to receive) over every single aspect of the food, from the canapés, the drinks reception, the carver boards went down a storm with the aprons and chefs hats, the evening food (oh my lord that hog roast! I had two!) and all the team and how amazing they all were!
I spoke to quite a few of your team and every single person was beyond lovely and all the guests agreed! You really made our day so fabulous and for that we can’t thank you enough!!
Thank you so much again and again!
Sam & Suzy
We just wanted to thank you so much for making our special day with your wonderful catering . We could not have asked for any better. Coming into the hall after our wedding was a real treat with a magical afternoon tea set out for us all.
Your team made things seamless, the food was amazing and we would thoroughly recommend.
Sarah and I would like to thank you and your team for going above and beyond to make our wedding day extra special. All of the guests were so complimentary about the food, and the fajita bar in particular was a big hit!
Alex and Sarah Reynolds
We just wanted to get in touch to say an absolute massive thank you. The food was of exceptional quality and everyone loved it, we've had so many people say that they've never enjoyed a wedding meal so much. But it wasn't just the quality of the food, we really appreciated how hard you and your team worked to make sure everything went smoothly, always with a smile. And thanks again for all of your advice and attention to detail in the lead up, it really helped to make sure the day was perfect!
Hi Rob and Team.
I am so so sorry for my late review but I wanted to thank you and your team for an outstanding service at our wedding on May 4th. Right from the outset from our very first contact I knew you would deliver. Nothing was too much trouble for your guys and i will be eternally thankful for not only providing amazing food for our guests, but to all your team for going above and beyond! Even when we had a small power issue! Thank you thank you thank you! We will be recommending you to anyone that will listen!
I just wanted to drop you a note to say I have left a review on your Facebook page, but I also wanted to email you personally on behalf of Naomi and I to say a big thank you.
The food at our wedding was amazing. The canapés were delicious (and plentiful!), the carvery was amazing and the pizza in the evening was just the perfect way to end the day for us. (We had guests commenting that it was very 'us', which is exactly what we wanted.)
Thank you for your help and guidance in setting the menu for the day, we have had rave reviews from so many guests now, it really did go down a storm.
Your team on the day were fantastic also, so please pass on this thanks to them as well.
Will and Naomi
Hi Rob and team
I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job at Sophie and Tim’s wedding a few weeks ago. We were impressed with your service from the moment I first emailed you, through meeting with Lindsey, food tasting at your unit, liaising in the preceding weeks, to the day itself. Everything was so well planned and thought through and it really eased our worries about the catering. A superb job thank you!
We have received many, many compliments about the food, and also the speed at which you managed to get everyone served, as well as the extremely friendly and helpful staff. My only regret is that I did not have an appetite on the day (!) and therefore did not manage to eat much!
We have no hesitation in recommending you to others. I’m actually trying to think of a reason why we could book you again ourselves!!
Jan and Peter Smith
From the bottom of our bellies, thank you so so much for an amazing day on Friday.
The food was hands down the best bbq we’ve ever eaten and so many guests actually said they couldn’t think of a better menu at any wedding they’d been too.
We hope you had a lovely day too, we will 100% recommend your company to all our friends and family for years to come!
Rob and Ellen (Husband and Wife!!)
I am so sorry this is so late in coming. I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for everything you did on our wedding day on the 21st July. It was a gorgeous spread and you made it so special for us. The staff were lovely, and you were very patient, despite us running mega late! The food was delicious - everyone was so impressed and kept complementing us on our wedding food.
So thank you again so so much. We shall definitely be recommending you to anyone who might be looking for wedding caterers.
Very best wishes,
Amy & Ed
Just wanted to email a big thank you. The food was absolutely amazing. We had so many of our compliments from our guests. Even three weeks later we are still getting messages from people about it. We would also like to say a personal thanks, from our first meeting you were so great offering advice and support. Thank you again
Karla and Dan
So sorry that it has taken this long to write to you. Has been very busy since the wedding an can't believe that it was over a month ago already. Apologies!
Just wanted to write to say thank you so much for yours and all of your staff's hard-work not just on the day but beforehand as well. You were a fantastic help throughout the whole process from being flexible enough to visit us at our home to making sure that we had enough ice to keeping drinks cold etc... The food and service that was provided on the day surpassed all expectations and was amazing. Your staff worked tirelessly throughout the entirety of the day to provide a first class service. Nothing was too much to ask for and we were so appreciative for this. The drinks service that you provided was spot on and no one was left empty handed! The wedding breakfast BBQ was delicious and we have had many people express to us just how much they enjoyed the food especially the variety that was on offer. The hog roast went down a treat in the evening as well. Everything about the catering was superb and we will happily recommending you to anyone that is on the lookout for a caterer.
It meant so much to us that such a huge part of the day went perfectly and that is down to yourself and your team.
Thank you again,
Alex and Pam Redman
We just wanted to send you a message to say thank you so much for making our day so special! We had such a fantastic day despite the weather!
The guests were blown away by the food, most ended up rolling home after 2-3 portions! High acclaim for some of our fussier eaters!!!!
Anyway, hope you guys get a bit of a rest, enjoy the long weekend! Please can you thank all of your staff too, they were amazing!
Debbie & Justin
We’re just back off our honeymoon and its fair to say were still buzzing from the wedding. The amount of compliments we have heard about the food both on the day and since has been overwhelming, and we just wanted to say another big thank you for being amazing on the day!!
Everything ran so smoothly and the food was delicious, and we hope you enjoyed yourself as much as possible (despite the heat!!)
We cannot say thank you enough for everything – what an incredible day!
So thanks one more time
Mr and Mrs Knight
P.s. the donuts went down a treat.
Myself and Alex just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for such an amazing service on Saturday. All our guests commented on how organised and polite you all were and most importantly how amazing the food was.
Mr and Mrs Seabrook 😀
I recently attended Jae and Rebecca Henderson's wedding where you provided the catering last Thursday (Hog roast).
I just wanted to pass on my appreciation as the food was amazing! From the scotch eggs and pies during the afternoon to the main meal, salads and dessert, absolutely top notch.
Also, I wanted to mention the staff were very friendly and professional also.
Please pass on my appreciation to the staff that day.
We would like to say a massive Thank You to you & your wonderful team, for everything you all did on our Wedding Day. Loads of fabulous feedback from our friends and family, they loved the food...we're delighted to know we made the right choices and picked a great caterer. The desserts went down a treat with everyone, people loved the fact we had a selection of meats rather than one choice and the Burritos, people were commenting on how they were different and just what they would have at their wedding excellent idea. People were not hungry, they wanted to squeeze in those Burritos into a spare gap :-)
Your team were very attentive to everyone including Simon & myself.
Thanks once again.
Claire & Simon Lamb
Sorry it has taken a little while to get in touch as we have been away and then busy getting back to work but we just wanted to write a note to you to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
We had the best day ever and the food, drinks and service you and all your staff provided was amazing! All the starters, the main and the pud went down a storm and everyone said how delicious it was! Also the evening food as well was amazing - again everyone raved about it! You really made everything run so smoothly and seamlessly which made our day even more perfect.
Thanks so much for all your hard work especially on such a boiling hot day!!
Claire and Jon.
Hi Rob and Team
Thank you so much for a fantastic job at Sarah and Phil's wedding at Boxgrove Village Hall on 9th June 2018. Martin and I were really impressed with the standard of food, the layout of how you serve the food and the staff you had. As ex caterers we really appreciate when a job is done well and you certainly all did that.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you or using you again.
Thank you again so so much for everything you all did.
Martin and Alison
We used Fat Hog and Big Pan for our wedding last week and I honestly could not have made a better choice of caterer. From the first message I sent Rob last year, up until the wedding day, he would deal with all enquiries and questions quickly and he was extremely helpful at all times, even down to helping organise the timings of the food throughout the day.
Now to the food, WOW. We had the French and Italian sharing boards and the Hampshire Roast meats option with potatoes and salads and it was honestly, just amazing. We also had guests with an array of dietary requirements and Rob organised different options for these, and they were all also so pleased with the food that they had. I can quote one guest who said 'I'm only ever going to go to another wedding if these people do the food'. I really cannot recommend Rob and his team enough, they were brilliant before and during the wedding day.
Just want to say a massive thank you to you and the team. The food was amazing, have had lots of people saying how great it was couldn’t fault a thing. Also the chips later on went down a storm!
I also want to say how good one of your waiters were he had dark hair and glasses, sorry I didn’t catch him name. He was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
I will be recommending you to all my family and friends.
Thank you again
Mr and Mrs Edwards
You provided the catering for my daughters wedding on Monday, and I just wanted thank you.
It is not often that someone provides a service that it is above and beyond original expectations, but I must say this was one of those occasions. The professional and friendly attitude of your staff and the extremely high quality of the food they served definitely contributed to what was a wonderful day.
Thank you again, Chas
I just want to say thank you so so much. The food was incredible and everyone was so so pleased with it. You got very high praises and not one complaint! Your staff were amazing and again everyone was so positive about them as well. I really really cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us on Saturday.
And the vegan and then coeliac diet needs were so impressed and happy with what you did for them. They felt cared for :)
You shall be highly recommended to anyone and everyone haha!! Thank you so much!
Our food on our wedding was amazing! From the start of the process Rob and his team were so helpful. We have received so many compliments on the food, with even the fussiest eaters saying it was the best wedding breakfast they have ever had. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much to ask. I will be recommending Fat Hog to anyone getting married or having an event in so we can have the food again! Thanks so much Rob! :)
You and your team did the catering for my daughter Gemma's wedding on Easter Saturday. I am sorry that I did not get to thank you personally on the night but we were all delighted with Gemma's choice of The fat hog and big pan catering.
The quality, quantity and variety of the food was fantastic, but above all the attitude, friendliness and helpfulness of your staff was exemplary and added in a very positive way to the experience of the day.
Many thanks once again to you and your team.
Thank you so much for yesterday. I didn't get to see you but the food was absolutely amazing. Better than I could even imagine. Everyone and I mean everyone couldn't believe how amazing the food was, the variety and the portion sizes. I was beaming from ear to ear seeing how much everyone loved it and I can't thank you enough. Your team were amazing and the blonde lady was incredible making sure I was ok all evening.
I heard lots of people asked for your cards so I hope you get lots of business from it. I will 100% be using you again and recommending you to everyone.
Thanks again for making our wedding perfect.
The new Mr and Mrs Morrison
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for all your hard work and lovely food on Sunday. We've had nothing but compliments from people.
Mike and Bex
We just wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for the cheesecake! It looked amazing and it went down amazing! People were loving the cheese!!
Thank you again
Mr and Mrs Robertson x
We just wanted to get in touch and thank you so much for the food that you prepared for our wedding day. All the guests have told me how it was some of the best food they've had at a wedding. It was absolutely delicious and we could not have hoped for better. The display was also fantastic. It really fitted in with our rustic theme.
We will definitely recommend you to anyone.
Thanks again and we wish you all the best.
David & Amy
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team for all your hard work at our wedding the other weekend.
The food was just as amazing as we remembered from the tasting and all our guests commented on just how delicious it was ( I had 2 desserts lol)
We are still eating the cheese which is AMAZING and went down fabulous with our guests.
Once again thank you so much and please pass on our thanks to everyone involved. You worked for long hours in the heat and everything was faultless. We appreciated it so much.
Hope to catch up soon.
Lots of Love
Kate & Mark xxx
Martin and I are just back from our honeymoon and we wanted to just take the time to send you a huge thank you for catering our wedding on 3rd June.
What an amazing display of food - it looked beautiful and tasted even better ! And there was plenty for those who wanted seconds, and thirds and nearly everyone went back for more as it was so delicious. Everyone we have spoken to, without fail, has raved about the food. You were so helpful in accommodating our guests with special dietary requirements and allergies.we felt that everything was all in hand right from the off.
Your service was seamless and without any stress or worry to us. It all just seemed to appear and disappear with minimal fuss. The serving team were amazing - so happy, friendly and helpful. What a delight they were.
We truly couldn't have asked for more on our special day - Thank you again.
Kate and Martin
I hope you're very well! I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you so much for the amazing food at our wedding on the 6th May - I'm really sorry I didn't get to speak to you more on the day itself - it went by in a bit of a blur! Everyone in your team was lovely and we really appreciated all the hard work.
Loads of our guests said yours was the best wedding food they'd ever had and everyone loved the hats/aprons. I also really appreciate everything you did for our guests with special requirements - they were blown away by how you went above and beyond, particularly my sister in law and niece. I should also mention that Ali thought your team were one of the best caterers she'd ever worked with!
Thanks again and have a great week :)
You catered at our daughters wedding this Friday gone. 24 February....curry! Such great feed backs...everyone loved the food your discreet but impeccable service. You are also the nicest of guys with such helpful and reliable ways.
Thank you so so much.
As a family we just like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work on Saturday. We have had loads of people saying how good you were and how tasty the food was. I would also add it has been a real pleasure working with you and that has taken the stress off of us.
Alan and Mary Barker
EVERY SINGLE GUEST of ours was in love with the food and the service you guys provided. It was fantastic and people are still talking about it, months down the line.
I've tried to get my mother in law and my wife to make me that paella and although it is nice, it's not the same.
If anyone wants a service provided where they know, that they need not worry about anything. then you guys should always be their first option.
I will be back for my wife's party, so we will deffo speak soon.
Hi Rob Keep meaning to do this but a huge thank you for the food at my and Jon's weeding every one said how lovely it was and how well presented it was and they loved the jam jars! I liked the personal touch like the lady that found me to give me canapés. I would highly recommend you to any one.
Claire and Jonathan Bisset
Sorry this has taken us so long but I wanted to thank you properly as was so thankful & impressed at everything you did for the wedding and Christmas got in the way!
We can't thank you enough for everything that you did for the wedding, we have had so many compliments from everyone who came to the wedding! Everyone said that the food was amazing, big portions for the xmas dinner and how good quality it was and the evening food I keep getting people sending me pictures at how good their rolls looked! My brother & his girlfriend were so pleased as well that the team had remembered that his gf was vegan and got her a falafel wrap for the evening which is just brilliant and the extra thought was really appreciated.
We were also really impressed at how you & the team dealt with the drinks in the day, it was even better than what I had expected having the mixers in the kilner jars and then passing people the gin and also putting it out later in the evening - I definitely got accidentally more drunk than I meant to, but I think Arran meant to get that drunk ha!
It was all so efficiently run and it didn't seem like you had a huge team but what they were achieving was so great, everyone particularly our parents were in awe of how you cooked so many dinners of different kinds and it all went so smoothly - the entire day was exactly how we had wanted it and we are so grateful that you managed the whole process so that it felt seamless to us!
We would recommend you without hesitation to anyone - I really hope it wasn't too stressful a day for you and that everyone behaved!
Thanks again so much, the whole process has been great and we couldn't be happier!
Have a brilliant new year Chloe & Arran xxxxxx
Hi Rob and team!
Thank you so much for all of your hard work on our wedding day. We were so happy with the food as were our guests! We also had several compliments on how lovely your staff were. The lady who was sorting the tables getting their food (short blonde hair) was fab as was the younger lad with dark hair who was sorting toast drinks. We were so happy as everything was taken care of and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We will be recommending you to anyone who will listen and we've already had a guest ask for your contact details!
Hope you are all well and that everything went well from your perspective too!!
Megan and Joe
I just wanted to email to say a massive thank you for all your hard work at my wedding. It was a resounding success. From the sharing boards through to the burrito bar everything was amazing and I have had so many great comments back from my family and guests about how professional you were, your team and how great the food was. As being in the industry I am sometimes slightly sceptical when clients email me about all the good feedback they receive, but I can honestly say between you the photographer, and the band I have never heard so many people praise these services.
I hope to work with you again soon.
Thanks so much for all you help - we had a great evening & everyone LOVED the food! Timings went a little awry but they accommodated it without a problem.
Hope to be able to use you again in the future!
Mark & Marie
Dear Rob and the team,
Simon and I just wanted to thank you for the amazing food you provided for our wedding at Norman Court Barn. We had so many positive comments about every aspect - I think everyone enjoyed it greatly. Your staff on the day were very professional and attentive and you all really helped everything run smoothly. The cheese cake was also amazing and a favourite with our guests. It was a pleasure to deal with you at every stage and we would not hesitate to recommend you, or book you for a future event.
Sam and I wanted to say how truly amazing you were at our wedding. Everyone we spoke to said how amazing the food was along with the presentation and added extras. We are so grateful for all the extras you did for us like serving reception drinks, setting out our iced buckets, preparing our toast bottles and so much more. You made our day run so smoothly and without you it wild not have been the same! The staff you brought along with you were superb and a credit to your ever growing business.
We can't really put into words just how special you made our day! We will certainly be recommending you to anyone else in need of a caterer!
All our love and gratitude,
Emma and Sam x
Just wanted to say thank you so much for Friday. We had the best day ever and this was helped by you and your staff who did everything you did to make sure it went smoothly. We loved the presentation of it, seeing you preparing outside added to the day and the food was amazing. Everyone told me how much they enjoyed it. The little extras you did to help like serving welcome drinks, collecting glasses really helped us out and was something that you didn't have to do. We couldn't have asked for more and are truly grateful.
Ashlee and Tom
Thank you so much to you and your fantastic team for all you did at Milly and Liam's wedding. I don't just mean the food, which was amazing, but the service and the extra help that was over and above what we were paying you for! A bottle of wine was a very inadequate token of our appreciation. Everybody was so impressed with the food and we're all very grateful for the major part Fat Hog & Big Pan played in making it such a special day.
With our thanks and best wishes,
Andy, Janet, Milly & Liam
I just wanted to say a massive massive thank you for catering our wedding yesterday! It was the best Hog Roast, food and drinks we've had so thank you so much for helping us make our day run perfectly.
We will leave you a smashing review and recommend you to all I can fella, honestly it was such a pleasure having you there with us.
Cam & Hev
Just to say thank you very much for putting on such a brilliant spread at our wedding. The food was delicious and so well presented. All of our guests commented on how good the food was and how much they loved the big pans!
Oh and the burger bar was a definite hit! A big thank you to your team who ensured that we (the bride and groom) were always well fed and even made sure that food was kept back for us! We thought that your food and service was excellent value for money and we really liked the fact that you were always honest and gave us great advice.
We can't fault you and your superb food and service. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and use you for any more parties we have!!
Kim and Adam
Firstly, I just want to say a HUGE thank you from myself and Nick for the amazing food, service and everything else that you provided on Saturday,
You have been so easy to deal with since when you first met Nick, and you have always made me feel as if nothing is too much trouble. I never had a doubt in my mind that the food wouldn't be anything less perfect and it truly was everything and more that we wanted,
We had so many comments on how lovely it was on the day, I think the Piccalilli and crackling were particular high points. But top of all were those olives! I think I need to know your supplier because wow - never had such a good olive!
I have to admit now, I am not a huge hog roast fan, but again you have totally converted me as it was so succulent and tender and totally yummy!
Once again I just cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our special day, and I really hope we have a reason to use you again in the future as its the best event food I (and many of our guests) had ever had,
Best wishes and take care,
Elle & Nick
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing hog roast at our wedding reception last night. Everyone commented on how lovely it was all presented and how tasty it was. You have been so easy to work with and gave us complete reassurance and no concerns whatsoever, nothing seemed too much trouble. We had the most amazing day, thank you for being a part of it.
We wish you all the best for the future and will definitely pass your details onto anyone who needs a brilliant caterer!
Aimee and Matt
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work at our wedding in September. I have had so many compliments about the food and how kind and helpful you all were to everyone. I felt so reassured by Rob through-out the whole process and when I left a list of things to be done on the morning of the wedding I could rest and enjoy the day without any worry.
The finishing touches to the hall and your whole set up was fantastic. It looked great and everything you did was brilliant all the last minute things were completed perfectly. Everyone on your team were kind, friendly and full of smiles on the day and everyone has said how brilliant you all were.
The canapés were delicious and everyone has said how good the choice and quality was. The system of the buffet was quick and efficient, one of the lovely ladies collected my dinner for me! The three pans and all the accompaniments were great, everyone was pleased with the choice there was something for everyone. The puddings were scrumptious and everything was beautifully presented.
Thank you so much for making our day so perfect.
All the best
Jess and Matt Cook
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your work last weekend, everything was absolutely perfect! I have had loads of great feedback about the food - which was amazing. Your team were so helpful! You added something special to our wedding day!! The cake was brilliant too, thanks so much for putting that together!
Jack and I would just like to send you our heartfelt thanks for catering our wedding in July. The food was incredible and went down so well with our guests - I know many who had third helpings of the delicious paella! But I have to say you were so much more than just a caterer - you gave advice, lent us equipment, chilled and poured drinks, looked after our guests and created a wonderful atmosphere. Our wedding certainly wouldn't have been the same without you - we have you to thank for so much of it. We couldn't recommend you highly enough and have already passed on your details to several friends.
Natasha and Jack
What can I say, your food was outstanding, your staff were better than I could have imagined and you did everything I asked. Thank you so very very much for all the effort you put into our wedding and for always making time for me during the planning.
Luckily I'm the first of most of my friends to get married so when the time comes for them I'll be handing them your number. Thank you so much again and I wish you all the luck and success with your company- it's truly unique
Good evening Rob!
We are home from honeymoon, and have just got round to saying our thank you's!! Hope you are well.
We want to thank you so so much for all your effort on our big day, and to the whole team who helped. It was just amazing and everything ran so smoothly, your contributions were truly noticed. I am so sorry i never even got the chance to come and see you, it was so busy and the day whizzed by before our very eyes!
We had so many comments about the incredible food, it was just delicious. We especially had a lot of comments about the sausage canapés! They went down a treat :D
We cannot thank you and your team enough and will be recommending you to everybody and will hopefully use you again ourselves one day.
The hugest of thank you's for your contributions to making our day go so perfectly,
Abby & Tim
We would both like to convey our gratitude, heart-felt thanks and how impressed we were with the catering for our wedding reception on the 25th at the Cross Barn, Odiham.
Firstly, the food was top notch. Really showed how much thought and effort you had put into the cooking, really good BBQ and the accompaniments went really well. I see you have a new smoker, looks like it did the trick! Working closely with you in the months leading up to it really proved how great it is to work with you and plan exciting things. We loved how you adapted ideas and really got on board with our Texas BBQ menu.
Secondly, the service was outstanding. A confidence which only comes from experience was evident from all your staff. Big smiles, politeness and effortless efficiency all went to make the day run smoothly.
Thank you for helping to make our day a very special one, it was enjoyed by all and we would happily recommend you to all who ask.
Hope you are well, have fun with the rest of the season and all the best for the future.
Mark Green and Kimberley-Marie Sklinar Green.
We just wanted to send you a massive heart felt thank you, for all your hard work that was put in to making our wedding day so special. The service you provided was extremely professional, but also calm and effortless.We certainly made the right choice having you as our caterers for our big day. It will always be our day to remember, but for all that you did we are eternally grateful.
We have now got back from our honeymoon and are starting to get round to thanking everyone for all their hard work and effort for our lovely day! It really was the best day of our lives!
We have had so many great comments about you and your staff - people are raving about the food (both canapes and hog) and everyone appreciated just how hard you were all working to keep everyone happy.
From my point of view I thought it was all fantastic; your display of your own food and our desserts looked perfect with our country scheme and looks fab in the photos! I only got to eat a crab and and a lamb canape (greg scoffed the rest!) but they looked and tasted better than I could hope for and the hog (and crackling!) was excellent. The cheese got absolutely destroyed - people kept coming up to me to tell me how good it was!
I asked your staff to put a little of each of the desserts by and they did - the day after was also very good day! :-) I thought they did a great job serving food and drinks, they were so friendly and helpful throughout the day. A big thank you to yourself too - everything seemed to flow smoothly (at least from my perspective!) - I was very glad that you were there managing everything so well behind the scenes throughout the day! It really made a big difference to us to know we could relax and leave most of the organising on the day down to you.
Thanks very much again for everything, we hope you have a great summer of lots of lovely weddings!
Bryony and Greg
Quick message to say thank you for amazing food And service yesterday. Everyone was so impressed with the food!
Thanks again for a wonderful day.
Greg and Bryony
I've been meaning to mail you! Thank you so much for such brilliant food and hospitality at our wedding and for posting these pics. We had an amazing day, made more so by you guys putting on a splendid hog roast it was perfect. We can't thank you enough (albeit belatedly!)
All the best
Vicky and Pedj
Thank you for Saturday, the two lovely lads you sent to us in your place were polite, cheerful and unbelievably helpful. The food was delicious and there was more than enough to go round.
The whole wedding day was a great success, and a lot of that was down to the food. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other people.
We’re just back from our Honeymoon. Thanks again for the day, your team were brilliant, everything was taken care of without any input from us, so it was a lovely stress free day for us! Many of our guests said that it was the best wedding breakfast they had had!
Dear Rob and Team
Thank you all very much for providing the catering at Jacob and Jenna Kingsley-Smith's wedding. Everybody was very complimentary about every aspect. The salmon in particular was very well received. It was a wonderful menu with all the accompaniments, and all beautifully presented. It was a triumph. I am sorry we did not speak when you had finished, to thank you personally.
A MASSIVE thank you for last night. It was superb - and everyone is saying how good the food was.
I'll let everyone know your details in case they want to book you.
I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a great service at the wedding on the 8th. Your setup really added something to the courtyard, and so many people commented on the food and the cheese and wine.
We all had a great day and were really pleased at how it all went. Back to normal life (more or less) now, but still enjoying the memories!
On behalf of Gerry and myself, we would like to thank you for last night. The food was really good and the staff thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was perfect in the corner and all of the props you had with you added to the theatre of it all. We have had lots of positive feedback and I am looking forward to receiving your new menus.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the excellent food and service last Thursday. You guys were brilliant and took a lot of the stress away from me which was very nice! I had so many positive comments from the visitors about the food, it certainly went down very well!
We don’t make a habit of hosting large events but if ever we need large scale catering again, you will absolutely be first choice. Thanks again J
Thank you for the hog roast and evening buffet you provided for our wedding on 6th September. In reality, we should be thanking you for so much more than that too!!
I don't know where to start - dealing with you was straightforward and you made the entire process so easy. The food was absolutely incredible, we had such wonderful feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed the meal and your staff were so friendly and helpful on the day. From putting cold bottles of water and wine on the tables, to handing out the welcome drinks, making sure everyone had food and topping up glasses for the toasts, you did so much more than provide the food for our wedding - you took away any concerns we had about how the day would run by simply making sure that everything went according to plan.
We can't thank you enough for everything and wish you so much luck with your business in the future. We are in no doubt that you will go from strength to strength and will definitely keep you in mind for future events!
All the best,
Lucy and Craig
Please accept my apologies for this incredibly late email to thank you for the fantastic spread you put on for our wedding last month. We have had so many positive comments about the reception but in particular the Hog Roast and I only sorry that I didn't get a chance to go round again for more crackling (only due to talking and dancing not because of lack of food).
I hope you have a good run up to Christmas but also get a chance for some down time too.
Best wishes and thanks
Katharine and Rory Armstrong
Good afternoon Rob,
I just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday’s feast! You were right there was plenty and everyone has said how much they enjoyed the lovely food.
It was very nice to meet your wife and she had everything well under control which was a relief for me to not have to worry, when there was so much else to do.
Thanks again and we would certainly come to you if we do another function.
This is a bit late as we've been away! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the fantastic food on our wedding day (30th Aug), everyone was commenting on how delicious it all was and also how professional and friendly you both were. We were really impressed with your service.
I believe a few of our friends are going to book you for parties next year so i really hope you get some business from us, we will definitely be recommending you!

A massive thanks to you and your team for yesterday’s Hog Roast.
Everything was superb…the food, the presentation, Chef & Waiter, everything. (I had 2 deserts!!)
I’ve had lots of fantastic feedback about the whole service you delivered.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved.
A massive thankyou to Ollie and his lovely staff for a fabulous BBQ yesterday. A joint 21st/50th celebration held at home. The food was amazing, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection . Meats, salads, condiments were stunning. Ollie was great, took the pressure off us completely, very relaxed, did all that was asked and very easy to get along with. Would highly recommend, worth every penny. Thankyou sooo much Ollie.
Dear Rob and team
Thanks so so much for the wonderful catering that you provided for our wedding in Old Basing on 26 July.
From the outset you were very professional and friendly in our dealings with you. We were very grateful to be able to draw on your experience and you made selecting the food for our wedding not only hassle free but enjoyable.
Throughout the planning stages we felt comfortable and confident knowing that you’re a “safe pair of hands.”
On the day, the food and service were both fantastic. All of our guests were unanimous in saying that the food was delicious and so different from the usual wedding grub. Your staff were all incredibly friendly and were so helpful in making the day run smoothly. One waiter in particular always made sure our glasses were full which we really appreciated.
Whatever we wanted, you made it happen, from the setting up, to the prosecco pouring, to the cutting of the cake, it all went exactly as requested. We were so grateful that you were able to make a delicious separate dish just for one person. You made us feel as though nothing was too much trouble and we felt comfortable in asking you for whatever we wanted.
We wish you and the Fat Hog Big Pan Catering Company all the very best for the future. We will certainly recommend you to any family
and friends who may need catering in the future.
Please do let us know if you’re catering anywhere that is open to the public as we would love to come along and sample your amazing food once again!
All the best

Just like to thank you for all you have done for Sally and James wedding.
Food was all perfect and all went like clockwork.
The day went off with no problems and that includes the weather.
Lots of fantastic feed back from guests many saying it was “the best ever” wedding which Sally and James are over the moon with!
Take care and thanks again
Firstly, can I say a huge thank you to you for Monday evening. We were all thoroughly impressed, and I have had everyone complimenting the wonderful food, the presentation and the friendly service.
We would definitely like to use your services again in the future because we have now seen how reliable and professional your business is.
Once again, thank you Rob for helping to make the summer party such a pleasant evening.
I couldn't recommend them more. Brilliant professional service with quality food. The salads and breads were so fresh. Everyone at the party raved about the food too.
I just wanted to say thank you for the hog roast provided last Wednesday, everyone greatly enjoyed the food and the service provided was outstanding, the day was a great success.
If we do another event along the same lines in future we will certainly look to come to you first for the food!
Many thanks, Sarah
Just wanted to give you a big thanks for the hog roast on Saturday. I even got my own plate of crackling, which made all guests jealous of me The pork was moist and delicious, and my mother was very happy with the vegetarian option.
Thank you again!
Just a quick message to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the brilliant work you and your team did on our wedding day!
The food was brilliant... guests are still saying to me now how much they loved the food! So much choice and everything so tasty! The Paella was also such a huge hit! In fact its prompted my mum to try and produce a similar dish tonight!
You also had a huge hand in making the day run so smoothly, there were no problems (That I knew of!) and your staff were lovely and professional.
Will definitely be recommending you!
Sophie and Tom Mccubbin
Food was great! Thanks Robert.

"We just wanted to drop you an email saying thanks for such a fantastic day on the 17th May. The food looked amazing and tasted even better if that is possible. I have only heard good things from the guests about the day and nobody has said anything other than praise for your staff.
A special mention is needed for the waiter. His persona was brilliant on the day; he took the time to know the names of all those in the bridal party and make sure we all had food and drinks throughout the day. This all helped add to everyone
(especially us) having a great day."
Hi Rob & Lindsey,
We just wanted to thank you for everything you did for us on Saturday! Working with you guys was truly and completely stress free which really eased all aspects of the party. The food and presentation was impeccable and the guests raved about everything you guys presented!! If I ever get married again (!), you are the call!! Even the ‘Lady of the Manor’ was impressed with your efforts! Also, kudos to your two assistants, absolute gents indeed!!
Guys, we wish you every success in the world, you deserve it!!! Don’t lose that personal touch, so hard to find these days.
Frank & Georgia
Hi Rob and Lindsey,
Just about come back down to earth after such an amazing weekend, everything went so well. I can’t thank you enough for your contribution to the day, you were brilliant, all we hoped for and much more.
We’ve received lots of compliments about the food and the way everything was set out. The chilli in the evening went down particularly well and everyone loved being able to see you cook it. I think the Big Pan idea is a great hit well done!
Lots of people loved Chris’s patter and some were really surprised that he knew their names, forgetting that they were wearing name badges, it all went really well. I particularly love all the photos which Lindsey took before everyone arrived, I hadn’t seen the garden with everything finished so it’s lovely to have a record of all the bits and pieces we’d created in their various settings.
I’d just like to wish you all the best for the future, you deserve it you work so hard. Many, many thanks once again.
Just a quick note to say a huge thankyou for yesterday. The hog was fantastic, it looked great and tasted great. Everyone loved it, we had loads of compliments, especially about the crackling...that was fantastic!
Thanks again x
Just to say a huge 'thankyou' for making Claire & Sam's day at Cross Barn, Odiham so fantastic.
Rob, thank you so much for your fabulous service and everything you did to help our big day run smoothly. The food was sublime, I just wish I'd been able to eat more!! Again thank you so much, and to anyone thinking of hiring The Fat Hog, do it! The food is amazing and Rob and his team are true professionals.
Hello Rob (and team),
Both my new husband and I wanted to drop you an email to say a massive THANK YOU so much for everything you did for our wedding.
Right from the moment we contacted you guys, you were super helpful, friendly and certainly knew your stuff. You got excited about what we wanted to do, came up with some yummy suggestions when we weren’t sure what we wanted and went above an beyond our expectations.
You really put my mind at rest when it came down the planning of the day, helping out with the set up, lay out, waiting of the tables including wines and helping me with ideas that didn’t have anything to do with the catering element. Honestly Rob, you really did put my mind to rest.
The food was AMAZING, really went above and beyond our expectations again, we had soooo many compliments on how lovely the food was. It’s the best hog roast, mozzarella (especially) and all round food I’ve had in a long time. So thank you very much. We had a couple of experienced high level chefs as guests and they complimented how impressed they were with the food was too. All round big thumbs up.
So I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you help, for delivering such amazing food and clearing up without me even noticing – it wouldn’t have been the same without you and your amazing team. Honestly can’t thank you enough!
I’ll make sure I recommend you to everyone I know and I’m sure we’ll use your services again in the not too distant future.
The new Mr & Mrs Gray
Thanks so much for yesterday. The hog roast and service were excellent as all our guests commented on. We
were so pleased with the service.
Thank you for all the amazing food on Saturday. We have heard nothing but great things from everyone who enjoyed it all.... And did not realise people could eat so much!
Once again thank you for all your help and the waiters were great.
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for our fantastic hog roast on Sunday evening.
The food was superb, and the quality was second to none. You both made the experience one to remember with your lovely nature, and your attention to detail, which was impeccable.
We agree with the lady before, who says that she didn't realise people could eat so much!
All of our family and friends have said how lovely it was too.
We will be recommending you to everyone!
Star and Rob
I wanted to say a massive thank you for all the hard work you put into to making our wedding meal so amazing. The food was fantastic, people are still talking about it now, and the presentation was perfect.
The fact that you made the whole process so easy and that everything was so organised on the day itself only added to the experience. I will be recommending you to everyone I know.
Thank you so much
Mathilde and Aidan
I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work at our wedding and to compliment you on the beautiful food. Everyone keeps saying the Hog was the best they have had, so compliments to the chef. I will highly recommend you to all friends and family.
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for such wonderful food. It was delicious.
Everyone at the party raved about the food, "superb", "really excellent", "good food", "delicious and so well presented", Barbara and I could not agree more. It really was melt in the mouth pork, with such an array of sauces all delicious that complimented the pork. There is nothing like guests going up for seconds and even thirds to know you are onto a winner!!! The salads were scrumptious, with hugh fresh olives to crunchy croutons, all so fresh and presented so beautifully you just wanted to dig in. You really did take the stress out of the catering, being easy to deal with from start to finish, dealing direct with the venue for set up and reliable. Thank you.
We will be recommending you to all our friends and family.
Thank you once again,
Amy and Barbara
Geoff and I just wanted to say another massive thank you for Saturday. The food and service were absolutely amazing. We're still enjoying the leftovers now!
