Hi Colin & Gary
We recently used ‘The Spitting Pig’ as the caterer for our daughter’s 21st birthday party.
Gary’s friendly and flexible manner, coupled with a nice menu and cost effective quotation made us confident to use their service.
The service on the night was excellent and hassle free. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it.
I will definitely be using their service again and recommending them to friends.

Marie and Pete - West Cork - 31st May 2014
Gary and his team at The Spitting Pig were a pleasure to work with for our Family Fun Day, creating for approx. 1200 people at two different sittings. From guidance with menu selections and meeting on site prior to the event, Gary and his team were not only professional but the food was plentiful and delicious, bellies were both happy and full at our event. Would highly recommend, especially the pig on a spit – not only adds theatre to your event but tastes amazing too!
Emma - Lusk
I just wanted to thank you all for the fabulous food on the 10th may. Everyone was talking about how tasty the pig was!! The weather couldn't have been worse, but your chef did an amazing job!
Eimear - Cartloe - May 2014
Just a note to day that the pig and food were a great success.
Everyone enjoyed the food and raved about the pork. My party was so much the better of this and was itself a great success.
Vincent was an absolute star and gave all round support and really added to the event.
I would really appreciate if you could pass on these words of praise and thanks to Vincent.
He was terrific.
I’ve been asked by a number of my guests for your details and I think more will also come back to me.
Vincent and the pig were memorable.
Ann - Dublin - Sept 2013
I wanted to say a huge thank you to you, and in particular Vincent and his very able assistant for making our christening such a wonderful event. We thought the food would be good, which indeed it was, but what we didn’t expect was the incredible level of service. Vincent and his assistant could not have been more helpful – offering to help in every situation (even putting out chairs, helping with drinks, whatever we needed). Without even having to ask, they ensured all the leftovers were wrapped and put away tidy in our kitchen – an absolute dream to find everything so tidy and organised. So thank you, thank you so much. We would recommend you guys without hesitation. All our guests thought you were brilliant too and you made the party.
Terri - Waterford - August 2013
Dear Spitting pig,
This testimonal is for our wedding on the 16th august 2013 at the West Cork Hotel Skibbereen.
What can I say about the spread you provided for our wedding of eighty people. The pig, potato and salads were better than our expectations. The pig was cooked to perfection with more than enough for everyone, including seconds or thirds which I had myself. The best part was the crackling which I dream of even now. Vincent who was cooking on that day was really friendly and helpful. If we were to have a wedding again we would get the spitting pig back again, and we would recommend this company to anyone for their event.
Thanks again for a wonderful meal.
Liam and Jessica - West Cork - August 2013
I just wanted to thank you for providing the excellent food for Thursday in Wanderers. The service was A1 so please pass on our thanks to both Francis and Christian for how they managed it. They were absolutely on top of everything and attended to all so efficiently. I shall certainly put your name out there in the event of future requirements.
Brid - Dublin September 2013
Just want to say thank you all very much for your hard work, and the food was excellent , everyone is still talking about the "pig" roll on next year!!!!
Kim - Carrigaline - September 2013
On behalf of Bob, Michael and myself and everyone who enjoyed Saturday 31st celebration, we would like to extend a Big Thank You for making our 21st Celebration Event such a great day. Your help on the weeks leading up to the event and on the day itself allowed it to run smoothly and keep everyone happy…we were even lucky enough to get the weather!
Appreciate the hard work,
Joe Barrett - Director
Dear Gary and all the team,
Just a quick email to say thank you for the Hog Roast on Sunday last, 18th August. It was a big success and went down very well with all the guests - they all said the pig was so tender and tasty and they were hugely impressed. In fact it was so good that my husband and I never even got a piece - we were so busy looking after everyone, it was all gone by the time we had everyone seated and eating!
Your team Apu and David were very friendly and professional in a nice low key way, and they set it all up nicely.
Thanks and regards
Mary - Dublin August 2013
Both myself and Kevin really just wanted to thank you and your fantastic staff for the fabulous job you did catering for our wedding. It was simply perfect. Vincent could not have been easier, nicer, helpful, everything you need in a caterer, he is it. I was just amazed by his completely professional and relaxed manner, he completely made me feel at ease, even when we realised we didn't have all the right plates we needed, he just worked with what I had and didn't let me stress at all. It really was a pleasure to work with him, and all the staff were equally friendly and fantastic.
Then the food, god it just completely overcame all my expectations. I knew from the tasting the food was going to be yummy, but to see so much food on the day being served, and every bit of it was scrumptious. We have had so many people tell us that they are converted to pork since our wedding, really, those pigs were TASTY"!!!! Everyone loved it and to be honest, we just couldn't have been happier. With everything
Can you please pass on out sincere thank you's to Vincent and all the staff that were there on the day. We will highly recommend you to everyone, and hopefully we will have another reason to get caterers in the future, and we know exactly where we will be going.
Thanks again for all your work and never ending patience with all my questions. We were blown away by your service and couldn't have been happier.
Joanne and Kevin (O'Neill :-) - Blackwater Castle - July 2013
We had a superb day - the food went down a treat and the guys were very professional throughout. Thank you.
Linda. - Bray - August 2013
We had an excellent night and I have had great comments back about the food.
Vincent and his partner did a great job for us and managed a bit of the “Loves & Fishes” as WE over sold on the tickets. I don’t think there was a scrap of food left but nobody was turned away and I had no complaints about being left hungry.
I still have some brochures left from the last time Vincent was with us and will also refer people to your site.
Thanks again for your help in making our August weekend a memorable one for all our members and visiting competitors.
Donal - Wexford - August 2013
Many thanks again to you and your staff for fabulous food and a great catering experience
Everyone enjoyed it! Hopefully we might have another event next year.
All the best
Anna - Kerry - July 2013
I just wanted to say thanks so much to yourself and Francis. We had a great day, and everybody gave great feedback on the food, it was really really tasty. And Francis was fantastic, he arrived in plenty of time and had everything ready bang on time for us, which was great, and he was so efficient at setting up and cleaning up afterwards. So we were really impressed, and I'm sure we'll be back to you again next year.
Thanks again and best wishes for the future,
Nicola - Sport and Social Club - Cork - July 2013
Thank you. Yes all went great on the day so delighted.
Vincent did a brilliant job with the BBQ also.

Amanda - City West - July 2013
Firstly thank you so much for all your help in getting menus ready for our event last Monday in Union Hall. The food was gorgeous and fresh, your staff friendly and professional and Vincent was just amazing. He was a dream to work with, nothing was a problem and he is a credit as an employee of your company. I will most definitely recommend you to colleagues and friends in Cork.
Union Hall - July 2013
We had a great day and the food was fabulous! J
We had great feedback and Vincent and the team were very helpful with ensuring it was only company employees that were eating the food.
Thanks again and I’d definitely be recommending you to the other teams here.
Cork Software Company - July 2013
We had a super day – chef Francis was a consummate professional cool and calm got on with his work. He is a credit to your firm. We will be using you again. We also had lots of enquiries from guests. Please thank him on our behalf.
Dublin - June 2013
Good Morning Gary,
Thank you for the most amazing of BBQs.
Your staff member was very professional, helpful, clean and tidy.
He did a wonderful job.
Everyone is talking about you and I hope you get more gigs as a result of being at Sonas
Dublin - June 2013
I wanted to write to you to say, Thank You very much. Francis was wonderful on Saturday and very kindly interacted with all the guests. He was there in the background cooking away and when everyone was fed, he had all his gear cleared away in no time. Thank you Francis.
Many people commented on the quality of the food and the lovely salads. We gave your details to people who asked where did we get the food from
It was a great day, thank you for the great food and sending our guest into the evening with full bellies!
Emma - Kilkenny - May 2013
I was thoroughly impressed from start to finish with Spitting Pig. Nothing was too much effort and it made the organisation of the fundraiser last Saturday so much easier. It was a one stop shop and the food was amazing. People are still talking about it, even those that didn't go! and the hog roast was delicious, really moist and tasty. I would definitely use them again and can't thank them enough for replying promptly to any queries, a very professional outfit.
Sarah - Wexford - May 2013
Many Thanks for the great food and a great service
Pamela+ Gavin - Ballybeg House - May 2013

I just wanted to say thank you for helping make my parent's 40th wedding anniversary a night to remember.

Many thanks to all,

Event Management Company - Cork - April 2013
Rob and I want to say a huge thank you to yourself and the rest of the team. We had a wonderful night on Saturday and we received compliments from everyone about the food. Since the beginning you have been very easy to deal with and the end result went off without a hitch! We have our cutting of the pig moment captured on camera... makes a difference from the usual wedding cake!
Thank you again for everything. We will recommend you whenever we can to people
Emma and Rob - Cork - May 2013
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for making our big day extra special. From the first day we met in the Sailing Club in Carlingford you convinced me that it would be possible to have an amazing wedding with a barbeque and spitting pig. I am raging I was so busy with photos and talking to people that I never got to taste the canapes but 'my husband' and many of the guests raved about them. One of my brother-in-laws said that he thinks he ate his weight in salmon on arrival!! Vincent was the main man on the day and he was just brilliant. He acted as wedding co-ordinator and chef for us that day! The pig was just fabulous and so many people have asked us for your contact details for upcomings events they have! A friend of my ............ who can often be hard to please when it comes to food as he is a real foodie!!........... said that it was the best food that he had ever eaten at a wedding............he is in his fifties so I'm guessing he has a lot of experience of wedding food!!! Michael and I cannot thank you enough - no problem was too big, even running to get the biscuits I asked for on the morning of the wedding!! The staff who served at our wedding were efficient, professional and polite. Thank you for everything Gary, we are so glad we choose Spitting Pig and would be very happy to recommend you to anyone.
Sandra - Carlingford
Absolutely delighted - the guys were so professional and the food was excellent
Everyone is giving it rave reviews today
Dave - Marketing Executive - Dublin Radio Station - Decmeber 2012
I would just like to say in this email a massive thank you from both Edgar and myself for everything you did for us on our wedding.
Having previously worked with Colin for a work event I had no doubt in my mind that the food was going to be good but I never expected my guests to still be talking about it - the pig especially 18 months later.
Organising a marquee wedding brings with it a lot of additional stresses but from the moment we chose Spitting Pig to cater for us we knew the catering was something we didn't have to worry about from that moment on.
You and your team went above and behond for us on our wedding day, from displaying a beautifully laid out buffet to ensuring wine glasses were topped up and water jugs were re-filled.
It meant a lot to us to be able to celebrate our wedding at home and you and your team made it all the more special by providing our guests with amazing food. From the finger food in our local pub, to the canapés before our meal right the way through the night and of course again for a BBQ the next day.
Thank you so so much and wishing you all the best,
Teresa & Edgar Rice - Cork Wedding
As iv been away and left so soon after the wedding i didn't get a chance to follow up with you before i left.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the BBQ on the 31st of August. The food was absolutely gorgeous. Francis (i think who was the Chef, I'm sorry i can't remember!!) was brilliant and everyone loved it...there was nothing left over!
I have no doubt i will be in touch in the future.
Georgina - Dublin September 2012
Hi All @ Spitting Pig
Thank you to Francis for all his cooking skills Sat.
The food was very well prepared & presented. He is most professional in his job.
We were very pleased with everything and it took a lot of pressure off of us to have you there.
Everybody was most impressed with the spitting pig and for most it was there first time seeing it.
Your name has been passed on to many friends.
Thank you again & we will keep in touch.
Barry & Aileen - Cork - September 2012
I apologise for taking do long to get in touch but it has been a frantic week!! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your staff - especially Francis, for the wonderful food you provided for my friends retirement party. Your support, patience and assistance throughout the planning of the event was fantastic and gratefully appreciated. ALL of my colleagues raved about how good everything was and my friend who retired was thrilled with the whole event.
Again many, many thanks to you all,

Rgds Carol - March 2012
Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank the Spitting Pig company for an amazing spitting pig! I didn't realise that you also supplied the different meat for non-pork eaters and all the salads - I thought I had to choose so I was very impressed with that. And so were all my guests - there was as many pictures of the pig! We had people coming and going until the early hours of friday morning and there was plenty of food for eveyone. For days after people were commenting on the food and several of my friends and family asked for your details.
So thanks to you and your crew for helping to make the day a success.
Emma Fitzgerald. - Cork - October 2011
Hi Colin, everything was superb. The food was magnificent. I will be in touch for our next bbq in June, pass on my thanks to your team

Thanks again ever so much for all your team's hard work for our wedding on 30th July. You guys did a brilliant job and we received so many compliments on the food so thanks very much!!
