Ten questions you should ask your event caterer

At North Nibley Hog Roast, we intend to provide you with all the information you will need to ensure your wedding or event runs smoothly, however its worth remembering a few key questions to ask us to ensure everyone is kept in the loop!

  1. What’s included in the cost?

It perhaps seems a little obvious, but often the obvious is what people forget. We can provide you with a useful breakdown so you know exactly what you’re paying for.

  1. Will I need serving staff/how many?

It’s useful to discuss numbers and options with us, we can advise you and provide staff.

  1. Who will be there on the day?

It’s always good to know who will be coordinating and working at your event!

  1. Will you provide the hire of linens, napkins and crockery?

Another extremely useful question to ask, especially if you have any special requirements or equipment of your own that you would prefer to be used.

  1. What food options are available?

Ultimately a hog roast is a hog roast, but if you have any special requirements in terms of extras, condiments and amounts, it’s definitely worth discussing.

  1. Tell us about your catering experiences?

If you have any concerns or queries, we’re more than happy to tell you about previous events we’ve worked at and give you an idea of how we manage our business.

  1. How will the day pan out?

Organising events can be stressful to say the least. Just ask us about how we intend to run our service for you on your special day, and we’ll help put your mind at rest.

  1. What will happen to leftovers?

With a hog roast, there’s a good chance you’ll have plenty of leftovers, we’re happy to discuss what happens to these with you.

  1. What happens if there is a change in weather?

English weather is unpredictable, but we can talk through worst case scenarios and ensure we have plans B, C and D ready in the pipeline.

  1. Cancelations and changes of plan?

Speak to us directly about our policy and what to do if your plans change.
