Hog Roast to Silver Service


We've had another very successful year with Ark Events, the catering arm of Ark Chicken. We have done quite a few weddings and big parties with in-excess of 250 guests, where we have provided canapes,  a main course ( such as a hog roast or multi-roast ) and deserts. All the food is made by Ark Events or sourced from local, quality suppliers. Give us a call if you have an event from dinner party, birthday, wedding or garden party and we'll talk through menus and prices. Fancy a curry? See our curry page.
