Dear Mark,
I wanted to e-mail and thank you for all you did to make my daughter’s wedding such a success. We really appreciated your careful organisation beforehand and the slick, efficient set up on the day. We came back from the church to find you set up exactly as you promised you would be and looking great next to the canvas marquee. The food was a fantastic feast of the best local fare and your hog roast went down very well indeed along with all the local cheeses, ales, breads (thanks Teign Valley bakery!) and home made salads.



We had lots of very positive feedback about the quality of the pork from the guests although the loaded plates and trips back for more spoke for themselves! One of my abiding memories of the day was a guest who stood outside remarking on what a great day it was and how we even had PROPER crackling!
Many, many thanks.



Hi Mark,
Thank you so much – you guys were brilliant and everyone loved the food!! Really appreciate all your time and effort, would recommend you to anyone. Please see comments below for the website and do let me know if I can do anything else such as provide references etc.

HHSW provided hog roast and evening food at our wedding (Cornish pasties and cream tea). The food was incredible, tender, tasty and plentiful – many people said it was the best food they’d had at a wedding, and I’ve had so many comments about the pasties, the best anyone had while in Cornwall! Mark and his staff were very friendly and so helpful – nothing was too much to ask, he was always quick with communication, great value for money, quality and taste. Cannot recommend HHSW highly enough and so glad we chose them for our day! Thank you all so much!

Thanks Mark!!




Hi Mark

Well what can I say….

We had such great comments on how wonderful your hogs roast is, even from people that would never choose that type of sandwich said how amazing it is!!! Thank you so much, we will definitely recommend you to everyone. For us and especially Matt who loves his hog roast sandwich think you were and are the best ūüôā

Thanks again

Victoria and Matt



“We had a hungry hog roast for our wedding reception and the whole experience was fantastic. Mark was very approachable and the communication when booking was brilliant. On the day everything went smoothly and the food was perfect. We would recommend hungry hog again and again!Kind Regards”



Hello Mark

“All is back to normal here now, but the garden is looking terribly empty. We all had such a good time, we‚Äôd like to do it all again!! Every element of the event worked really well and, as you say, even the weather was kind to us.

I would particularly like to say a big thank you to you ‚Äď the hog roast was magnificent. Your whole operation from your arrival to your departure was so impressive and professional and you were such lovely people to work with. As I hoped, the hog roast was more than just delicious food, it was a piece of theatre too. When our photos are developed I will forward you ones of the hog.

So many people complimented us on your food and you as people, and the crackling was sensational. Many of the thank you cards we have been receiving are using the word ‚Äėtriumph‚Äô to describe the party and your hog roast played a big part in that.

I can certainly say that as and when we hold another party like it, we will be straight back to you!”




When we were looking for a suitable hog roast to celebrate a recent birthday we were fortunate enough to be recommended Mark Paton of Hungry Hog south west by a professional caterer.

Mark provides a competitive all in service with nothing for the customer to do. The pig is roasted off site and arrives ready to carve at the agreed time. Mark provides a small gazebo for the large choice of sauces and chutneys he provides. The pig is superbly cooked with moist meat and lovely crackling. His bread rolls are of the highest quality and, like the meat, suitable for home freezing should there be any leftovers.

Mark`s unit is very compact and there is no cleaning up after the event. Thank you Mark for providing us with a trouble free evening that everyone enjoyed immensely.

We invited Mark Paton to bring his hog roast ‚ÄúHungry Hog Roast South West‚ÄĚ to Woodovis Park, as a trial to see how well it would go down. Our dealings with Mark were very professional, the quality of the food exceptional and the service and prices extremely reasonable. The whole event was a great success and we have now extended it to run weekly through our high season. Many thanks.

Thank you so much for making our party special, the hog was spot on.
Brian will make a recommendation on your website.
Once again thank you both very much.

Thank you so much for providing the Hog Roast for the Brentor Village BBQ and party.I have only heard favourable comments from all who attended the evening.
It made the job of organizing the event so much easier than it has been in the past when the committee had to do the cooking. You arrived on time and set up quickly; supplying plates, napkins and sauces.

We only had to provided the salads to complete a brilliant evening. You even did some of our washing up……what more could we ask.
For a hassle free village event or party we could not recommend you more highly. Many thanks

Hi Mark, Thank you so much for a fantastic evening.  Your service from the outset was professional, accommodating and friendly.  You arrived and set up when you said you would and brought everything promised.  The food was delicious and served at all times with a cheeky smile and good humour, it added to the relaxed atmosphere of our evening and

I would HIGHLY recommend your excellent service to anybody.

I’ve received many comments about how brilliant your food was so we are well chuffed with our hog roast. ¬†Many many thanks for a wonderful evening and I hope you managed to stay awake for your journey home after what must have been an exhausting evening and day for you.

 I would certainly use you again, you were brilliant.

Many many thanks and even a hug for you and your dad!




Many thanks for the hog roast for my Birthday Party on 4th August.It was superb,all that I hoped for -and more!! Fantastic food ,Superbly prepared and presented and all with a friendly smile, what more could one ask! EVERYONE was greatly impressed and wanted to know more details!

Thank you once again and can’t wait for the next party!!




We chose Mark at the Hungry Hog for a number of reasons. Firstly, he catered for our exact numbers, other hog-roasts in the area only catered for very large parties and we felt that would be a waste. Secondly, his responses to my questions were full and swift. And thirdly, he offered a comprehensive list of services – so we didn’t have to do anything.

It gave us confidence that our special event would be catered for with professionalism and the personal touch. We we right. To say that he met and surpassed our expectations is an understatement. All our guests left sated and happy.

The vegetarians were particularly impressed by their different options. The guys served and tidied with charm and efficiency. Oh, and I’ve eaten hog-roasts before, and this would have to be the juiciest meat, and best crackling! I would recommend the company to anyone who asked.




Mark, Angela and I would like to say a big thank you for the quality of food and service you provided on Friday. It was a real pleasure to work with people who arrived on time, served on time, and went the extra mile at every opportunity. The food was delicious and plentiful and we would certainly recommend you.

”Fantastic hog roast. We had a three meat roast but I have also been to a Hungry Hog hog roast. Beautiful tender meat with all the trimmings and lovely fresh bread. Once you have booked, hand it over to Mark and he does the rest! Would definitely use Hungry Hog again and would highly recommend. I couldn’t have asked for better service.”

“Hi Mark, I was just saying to Tom, I must e mail you! The hog was amazing, and everyone we spoke to said it was the best hog they’d ever had… One bloke managed to eat 4 so it must have been good!
I’d saved half of mine until the next morning and it really help with the hang over before the sea swim : )

We can’t thank you enough, and couldn’t recommend you highly enough for a wedding, so helpful and professional, it was so lovely to walk outside and find you all set up an ready to go.

We can’t thank you enough for helping our day to run smoothly. It was AMAZING!!!!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you ever need a a happy customer recommendation! “

Thanks again
Megs and Tom



Hi Mark

Married life is going well thanks, we have just returned from a short honeymoon in the Forest of Dean.
We could not have been happier with everything that you provided for us last Saturday. The whole process from initial booking up to and including the wedding day has been brilliant. We have also had lots of positive comments regarding the hog roast. All of the food was delicious and we would not hesitate to recommend Hungry Hog South West.

Thank you very much for everything.

Kind regards
Louisa and Laurence



Hi Mark

Yes we were very happy with the food thank you! The hog was well appreciated as you say and the strawberries were a nice refresher before speeches. People were pleased that there was extra hog for the evening with one guest getting over excited about eating cheese and hog on the same plate!!

Thanks again for helping to make our day so relaxed

Hello Mark,

We want to thank you so much for supplying the hog roast for my husband’s 60th birthday party on August 2nd. ¬†Everyone was very complimentary about the food. ¬†Some of the guests even said it was the best hog roast they’d ever had. ¬†Despite

the hassle of not being able to find the venue, you and your colleague seemed very calm and remained professional throughout the evening.  I would certainly recommend Hungry Hog to anyone who was running an event.

Thank you again for helping to make our evening such a success.

All the best,



Dear Mark

Thank you once again and can’t wait for the next party!!




! It was AWESOME!!!!
I didn’t hear them arrive or see them set up, but suddenly the most amazing smell drifted across the Town Hall and people began to queue before dinner was even announced! The hog roast was YUMMY! There was enough food for everyone to have at least one roll stuffed full of pork, stuffing and crackling. It just melted in my mouth!

I was also impressed with the local array of chutneys and sauces to accompany the pork. Being a wedding, we of course had some vegetarians and Mark provided a delicious alternative for them. Most impressed was my vegan friend who approached Mark for a bread roll . However he stopped her, changed gloves, and produced a vegan alternative!

What a star! Many of my guests were so impressed they hunted down Mark in the market the following Monday for a second go! Thank you so much Mark, a delicious dinner, avery reasonable bill and a most impressive service. I would and will recommend you to anyone!

Hi Mark,

“So sorry Ive not been in touch sooner we jetted off to the Alps straight after and Ive just picked up WIfi. The food and your service was absolutely second to none. You did an amazing job and everyone commented on the food. It far exceeded my expectations and we were really chuffed. I know you are a busy guy but Ive always felt able to get hold of you and be a picky customer and felt like nothing was too much trouble. Thanks so much! Thank you as well for trying to help me with the patio heaters”.


Hi Mark,

Just to say thanks again for the delicious hog you roasted for our wedding on August 6th at Down farm in Devon. Thanks for so happily accommodating our paprika wishes- many guests commented on the juicy meat and there were some crackling devotees too! It was so good we ate most of it on the day- just enough left over for a slightly hung-over brunch for the dancing survivors on the grass the next morning! So glad you were free for this date with delicious cooking skills and a flexible service, it was a pleasure to have you and your crew around,
Best wishes,
Jamie and Helen


Just wanted to say a very very big thank you for the fabulous food you provided on Sunday, everybody really enjoyed it and said how tasty it was, thank you for accommodating us when we wanted a menu that wasn’t one of your set choices and helping make the celebration a success we would most definitely recommend you.




We had many comments about the quality of both food and the service of it and you were particularly good with the children and their exacting requirements! To have you catering at Rob’s birthday resulted in a stress-free and enjoyable party. There was loads of meat and rolls left that we’re enjoyed the following day by all those who stayed the weekend.
I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone holding a special event.

Thanks again Mark,
Kirsty Newton
