Our Story

We are The Tipsy Pigs. Three old school friends with a passion for great food, laughing with friends, service with a smile and excellent event management.

What started out as a distant dream between old school buddies – Neil, James & Carla, finally came to life and we’re now living the dream……… well kind of.

A few years back Neil, a successful head chef convinced James, Director of an Event Management Agency to buy a classic VW Camper pick up van to convert into a vintage catering van. Being foolish men, we jumped in, feet first without a business plan or access to the £30k required. So the dream came to a shuddering halt and the van went into storage.

Fast-forward two years, we made a very sensible decision to bring in another school friend, Carla, a successful chef and restaurant manager in her own right and together we developed the concept and unique mix of Hog Roasts & Cocktails. This allowed us to convert our lovely campervan to a working cocktail bar and The Tipsy Pigs were born.

We just thought what could be better than succulent hog roasts, washed down with a punchy cocktail. Hog Roasts make for a brilliant centre-piece attraction and add to the theatre of feeding your guests and nothing lubricates a great party atmosphere than a top end cocktail.

Amongst strong competition, Tipsy Pigs commitment is to be a trusted brand in event catering and service. With Neil & Carla at the cooking helm we have two fabulous head chefs who can cook and prepare anything for all types of events, from garden parties to weddings. Whilst James has years of experience of organising and planning events for some of the UK’s top brands so we’re happy to help with any of your event planning. Tipsy, our cocktail van looks great at any event and can be booked on its own or as an addition to the Hog Roast Catering. Tipsy is also available for corporate and branding promotions too.

So do keep an eye out for our progress and the great stuff we get up to on our social media pages and of course we’d love to hear from you to discuss your event.
