The naturally plentiful region and county of Cumbria happens to be one of the most sparsely populated counties in the whole of the British Isles. Comprising of six defined districts and sitting in the north western corner of the mainland of England – the county more than makes up for its low population with huge amounts of spirit. Places such as Hog Roast Cawsand are sure examples of this – as it is a region filled with a stoic sense of patriotism – often more patriotism to the county than to the nation itself, epitomised by the fact that ancient Cumbria had its own language which is still in use today in more places than you may realise. With a strong sense of family that is borne from a diverse yet broad focus in agricultural farming as well as the rearing of animals – it is an absolute understatement to say that the people and folk who populate the area love their food. With national treasures such as Cumberland sausages, it is of little surprise that well cooked meat is something that the inhabitants of Cumbria enjoy very much indeed. Hog Roast Windermere is one of those places which can just take your breath away – and our hog and spit roast events served there have always been a joy.
Although it can be argued that the weather rarely helps you out when visiting Windermere – it is certainly the case that this place is beautiful and enjoyable irrespective of the weather or other such elements. With hill-walking and all other such activities that accompany it ‘hand in hand’, there is simply no finer or more enjoyable way to cap off the day than to have a glorious hog and spit roast with us. Able to serve at your house or function venue, our fully skilled staff prepare the most delightful produce in a manner which is a sensation for all the senses – just as much so in Windermere as in Hog Roast Braithwaite. Our catering teams all love the region – and our ability to provide it with gorgeous food is a real privilege to be part and parcel of – from Hog Roast Garsdale through to the lofty yet gorgeous heights of Hog Roast Shap. By utilising the freshest produce, sit back and relax as we slowly roast your hog from its completely raw state. As the meat turns, you and your guests can enjoy such wondrous aromas – really heightening expectation. Along with the delicious smells, the carcass as it slowly becomes golden brown is a joy to behold. As we carve, you can see how delicate the meat is – so full of flavour with an almost melting quality. Your guests are sure to enjoy it – along with any side dishes which you have stipulated – as these will be made by our skilled and qualified chefs in front of you also – a thoroughly comprehensive dining experience – any where in the region, in places such as Hog Roast Hartington.

Here is a great tale all about hog roasting in Cumbria. When me and my husband along with my two young children decided to go on our holidays last year, we looked through the holiday brochures and were instantly impressed by the glitz and glamour of faraway places but we did not know where to turn as there were so many choices to pick from. Despondent, I was talking to a colleague who said that Cumbria was a great place to go to. After doing extensive research on the internet with my husband, we found a nice cottage near the Lake District at a wonderful price which, coincidentally, was owned by friend who I hadn’t seen for years. So, we headed out last August and enjoyed ourselves immensely with our youngest child saying that it was the best holiday that he has been on. It was a resounding success, especially when we went to a hog roast party held by the person who owns the cottage which we stayed in. Owning several cottages and understandably rich, we were flattered by this invitation and thought we couldn’t turn it down even if it was just for a few hours. After all, we had been given a special price for this cottage and it would have been rude not to have gone. And we were all glad we did go. Heading out one late sunny afternoon we were greeted by a remarkable sight. Around five hundred people were crammed onto the side of this vast expanse of water. My friend met us at the entrance and said for us all to enjoy ourselves and we did exactly that. With the children having befriended local children, they headed off with them and disappeared for a few hours on the fairground rides which were dotted around. We both found a stall that took our interest as soon as the children left. Considering the huge number of stalls which were there, this was quite an achievement in itself. The stall in question was selling a whole hog, roasted to perfection and served in a really appetising roll with loads of sauces. Having seen this in countless films before, these took place in the USA and being in the Lake District we were thousands of miles away from the Land of the Free. Not only did the smell overpower us as it was that distinct odour which instantly grabs you due to it being too good to be true but the sight was fantastic too. Served to us was just about the tastiest servings of pig roast which we had ever had before and was better, hands down, when compared to the other meats we have tasted in a butchers shop and from leading supermarkets. Served with a side portion of apple sauce, the meat became a taste sensation. Having gulped down our initial hog roast roll, we decided to go for another serving but had to take our place in a queue which was steadily increasing. It was well worth the wait though and both me and the wife had a super hog roast sandwich and then we saw a big advertising banner for the company running the stand, yes you’ve guessed it, it was the hog roast catering company, well done guys!
