Champagne Charlie’s Catering is an established and leading wedding and event caterer, providing quality and professional catering at events across Dorset and the South.  We have a wealth of experience in catering at different events, with a team of professional chefs and waitressing staff who take enormous pride in their work.  You won’t be disappointed in the quality and service you receive.  Menus are created with you to suit your taste and budget, and we cater for all dietary requirements, specialising in gluten-free menus, so please enquire for more information.

We can assure you our prices are extremely competitive, and the service is second to none.  So please call us for more information and a quote.

We can supply dressed waiting staff for your event, as well as all the glassware, crockery, cutlery, table linen etc you may require.  Our prices do not include table service – this is an additional cost if required.  We can also help with the drinks if this is of interest and have many drinks packages for you to choose from, or we can just serve whatever drinks you would like us to!

Hog Roasts

from £495

Our hog roasts are served with succulent hot fresh meat served straight from the roasting oven with crispy golden crackling; we rub the skin of all our hogs with olive oil and sea salt flakes to give the crackling its wonderful flavour and crunch.  The meat is then loaded hot into our freshly baked soft bread rolls with the all-important sweet and savoury taste combination of our homemade apple sauce and sage and onion stuffing.  Perfect!  A true British favourite!

Cooked the same way as the pig roast, we can vary the roast to offer a 3-meat spit roast cooked with a choice of 3 meats from pork, beef, turkey, gammon and lamb roast – price on request.
