Hog Roast at Basepoint Tewkesbury Summer Event - A Licensee's Tale


James Benson from Benson of Broadway who is based in unit 75 at Basepoint Tewkesbury held a hog roast recently. He said "as venues go this has to be the best I have ever been to - it being so close - it was the unit 4 down from my own kitchen. We had initially planned for it to be outside, but english summers being what they are we relocated to one of the empty units. As I set up the barbecue with pig roast on it all the workers in offices opposite us were starting to get interested, and soon a mass of people arrived, and the pig was left decimated."

It was about as local as you could get - the pig was Gloucester Old Spot/ Berkshire cross (ultimate combination) from Home Farm in Bredon's Norton - 5 miles away and cooked in the bakery oven at Drapers on Northway Lane, just round the corner from Basepoint. So many people said it was the best they had been to. The bakery oven gets the crackling just perfect.
