Comments about this page

Had a glorious weekend in Norfolk where we had two hog roast events in one weekend.  The first was a hog roast for 80 guests up on the North Norfolk coast at Heacham. This was a birthday celebration and our inhouse chef Terry really enjoyed this event. We took up a presentation box of complimentary cupcakes for the birthday boy who was 21. That was our first saturday in Norfolk for a couple of weeks and it was a fantastic event. Sunday saw us in Yarmouth for a rural event on the East Norfolk coast, it was a smaller affair with 50 guests and plenty of hog to go around as the pig was a little generous. Still nobody complained at getting seconds and some thirds I believe the weather was great all weekend and so once again Norfolk came up trumps for Parkers hog roast.
