Our Meat

All of our meat is British and sourced locally from the best farms and butchers in Warwickshire. We are dedicated to offering you the best possible fresh meat, backed by the highest standards of quality assurance.

Our Spit Roaster

The sight of perfectly roasted meat giving off a mouth-watering aroma is an important aspect of any roast event. Our equipment is designed to satisfy the eyes as well as the belly!

Our spit roaster.

Our meats are roasted to perfection using our CE-approved 100% stainless steel spit roaster. The spit roast provides an impressive visual centre-piece for any party, allowing guests to view the whole spit roast from beginning to end. The roaster has a toughened heat-resistant glass window allowing customers and chefs to view it whilst cooking.

Once the roasting is complete, the doors are removed, the meat is raised, and our chef carves the roast from behind the machine. Guests can then enjoy the full visual experience from the other side of the machine.

Our Menu

As well as our trademark pig roasts, we can also provide a wide range of other delicious options, including:

  • Canapés
  • Starters
  • Deli-Boards
  • Main Courses
  • Sharing Platters
  • Desserts
  • Sides
  • Afternoon Tea
  • Vegetarian Options
  • BBQs
  • Salads
  • And much more...

Please see our menu for a full range of options and prices!

Simon and his brilliant staff made our wedding something really special. Everyone was really well fed, the food was delicious and there was nothing they couldn't do for us. It made a real difference to our day and I fully intend to go back to them at every given opportunity!

Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic spit roast on Saturday. It was amazing, I had so many telephone calls on Sunday saying how tender and tasteful the pork was, it certainly made the party go with a bang.

Marlene Bateman

We would just like to say a huge "THANK YOU" for the superb Pig roast that you served at our party last Sunday. Everything about it was outstanding, the food, the service, the presentation and above all the friendly and yet professional way in which you did the job. We really feel that Shakespeare Pig roast made the afternoon into something very special.

Trevor and Mary Sturt

Thank you, thank you, thank you for a BRILLIANT hog roast on Saturday! We were so impressed with your professionalism and the pig was just gorgeous! Our guests have all raved about you and how tender and flavoursome the meat was. We had a brilliant night and can't thank you enough for your super service.

The Shakespeare Spit Roast Company have been a joy to work with.  As well as serving excellent food, Simon is always extremely helpful and efficient in the service that he provides.  Simon’s friendly personality also played a big part in why we chose to use The Shakespeare Spit Road Company for the second year running; something very important when you are putting on a corporate event where even your suppliers create an impression to your customers.

Jodie Champion, FloriPro Services

Once again many thanks for a wonderful experience that was enjoyed by all present.

John Dain

Prodrive used Simon's business, the Shakespeare Spit Roast company, to provide catering service at our Christmas party in December 2009.  Simon and his team were very professional and provide a pig roast, beef roast and a vegetarian option for 600 people.  We would have no hesitation in using Simon again - he responded to our queries in a timely manner; he understood our requirements and more than achieved these.  A first class service.

Paul Cottam of Prodrive

We had the best Annual Christmas Party so far and decided to get caterers in, even though we are a caterer! I contacted Simon at The Shakespeare Spit Roast Company who provided a wonderful all round service, all the hassle taken out of organising food, serving, clearing way and the best roast pork we have ever tasted. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone, truly brilliant
