"Thank you for the lovely spit roast and food you supplied to Steve and I at The Dormy House Hotel on 8 June. Everyone said the spit roast and chicken etc. were delicious. It really is a bit of theatre in the evening and adds to the occasion.

Thanks again for the amazing food. If we know of anyone looking for a spit roast, we won't hesitate to give them your contact details."

"My new husband and I would just like to send out thanks to you for the wonderful catering you provided at our wedding on Saturday 4th June.

We were highly impressed with the everything you did, including the set up, politeness of staff, portions and of course the yummy food! Numerous guests commented on the wonderful food, and one even commented in the guest book stating it was 'the best pork and stuff batch ever', to which I would say that both of us would have to agree. Thank you once again.

We would definitely recommend the Shakespeare Spit Roast Company to everybody!"

Nicola Atkins

"Thank you so much for last Tuesday evening.  In spite of the sub zero temperatures, the spit roast was a fund raising success and a lot of people commented on the gorgeousness of the pork.

Hopefully we will book you again and I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and acquaintances."

Vanessa Rigg

" every way! I would recomend Simon and his team every time. They helped to make our day so special. The meat was HOT throughout the service, tender and very tasty. All the extras were fab too and more than enough of everything for every one. Another most important fact; nobody had to wait for their food.Our guests were over the moon. 5 STAR RATING."

Lynn Harris

"Just to say a big thank you for the spit roast and bbq you did for us for our wedding (31st July) it was lovely and everyone enjoyed it even our sister who hasn't ate pork since she was 4!

We had a great day thank you for contributing to that and i'm sure we will use you again."

Sarah & Rob Hover

"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™

"Just to say thank you for the wonderful Hog roast last Friday - everyone really enjoyed it and I've had lots of favourable comments about the Hog - I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone.

We had a brilliant night everything was just perfect - thanks again and best wishes"

Sue Palmer

"Simon and his team catered for our company's annual Open Day and did a tremendous job. The whole package was great - everything from the quality & range of food to customer service, presentation & price. Our guests certainly enjoyed it - evident from the fact that many went back for 2nd's and 3rd's! We will certainly be using them again and would recommend them to others. 5.0/5"

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

John Dain

"We got married at Belvoir Castle on the 17th December 2009 and Simon did the most fantastic pig roast for us on the evening. We wanted something that looked and tasted good which would fit perfectly for a castle wedding and we were not disappointed. It had a real wow factor and certainly impressed all our guests and the staff at the castle. The pig was brilliantly displayed and tasted amazing, it was one of the talking points of our Grandad said that it made the evening! It is great value for money you get a huge bap filled with pork and stuffing or apple sauce which means your guests are not left hungry or disappointed, most of our guests went back for seconds and some even thirds! One aspect that makes Shakespeare Spit Roast unique is that they serve you rather than just going to help yourself, which I think is important at a wedding or another important event. Simon and Becky are a great team, very professional and friendly. I can't thank them enough; I would most definitely recommend them to anyone! Thanks again! 5.0/5"

Claire Smith

"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"

David Weller of Alliance In Partnership

"I just want to say a huge thank you to Simon and co. for the fantastic pig roast they provided on our wedding day. Simon was extremely helpful, professional and friendly from the start and the service given was truly excellent. So many of our guests commented on how great the food was and how friendly the staff were - it seems to have been one of the highlights of the day! We would recommend this company to anyone. 5.0/5"

Katie and Luke Barratt

"We asked Simon to do a pig roast for our wedding on the 8th of August, he also arranged jacket potatoes; the food was absolutely fantastic and it was all cooked perfectly; most of my guests were farmers so they know a good pig when they are eating one!!! He really could not have done anything better- thoroughly nice chap. 5.0/5"

Merlin Davis

"Simon is a terrific guy and was a joy to work with. He provided a great product, and the service really was exceptional - it was a complicated party, and he arrived early, and lent a hand wherever he could - certainly well beyond his own brief. We'd have The Shakespeare Sit Roast Company again in a flash! 4.7/5"

James Benfield

"Friendly, hardworking and thoroughly enjoyable. The quality of the meat was extremely high and the service provided took all the stress out of organising the event. Rebecca and Simon are an exceptional team and I would recommend their services to anyone. 4.3/5"

Emma Carter

"We used Shakespeare Spit Roast for my Moms 70th birthday, so had a mixture of young and old people. Everyone enjoyed the pig roast, commenting how good the food and staff were. We had good support from the initial enquiry to the day of the party, answering all questions in a timely manner. Some of the guests showed an interest in booking this company for other events that they are involved in. The chef carved the remainder of the pig into manageable joints so that further meals could be had - and did make excellent meals during the following week. We will recommend to others. 5.0/5"

Julie Wright

"Using Shakespeare spit roast took all my worries away, who needs to do the catering when you can have a company like this to take care of your needs. I will be recommending it to my friends. 4.7/5"

Elaine Thompson

"We hired the Shakespeare Spit roast Company for a 40th Birthday Garden Party. The quality of the food and the efficiency of the staff were excellent. We were particularly impressed with the friendliness of the company. Everyone seemed really happy to be working together. We would definitely use them again. 5.0/5"

Susan Watt

"Simon and his team provided the catering for my 50th birthday garden party. Every aspect of the service provided was exceptional. They were very helpful at the planning stages calming any worries and on the day they arrived on time, set up quickly and served excellent food in a professional and friendly manner. The compliments from all of the guests confirmed that we made the right choice. I would have no hesitation using the Shakespeare Spit Roast Company again and would recommend them without reservation. Thank you Simon & Co for a great day. 5.0/5"
